Native Americans are a prevalent part of United States history, but rarely get their side of the story told in history textbooks. Starting a lesson on Native Americans and Europeans relations with a story from the Native American side, would not only open up the students to a different perspective, but also teach them about another culture and group of people that mainly get left out of the picture. We as future educators find it highly important and very valuable to introduce multicultural literature both fictional and nonfiction to students as early and often because “multicultural literature creates a community within the classroom… where not only are differences tolerated but embraced.” (Boles, 2006). With future classrooms probably going to be diverse more than ever in any situation urban, rural, etc. multicultural literature is becoming not just a want, but a need to have in any classroom to allow for students to feel comfortable, accepted, and believe that they are an important part of the classroom and the

During those activities, the two way interaction between me and my peers were fully established. It provided me the great opportunity to liaise closely with the lecturer and course mates as well. In the same time, it also created a good rapport among us and enhanced my soft skills too.

Evans argues that women helped shape America in ways that most don't hear about in their History courses. They are many women that have been behind the scenes of the shaping of our country. Sara M. Evans shows, in her book Born for Liberty: A History of Women in America, that women did more than most people hear about in their average history course. This information should be better taught so that both genders are given the credit they deserve.
This is because the structure of World History units typically include topics on several regions; covering a timeframe of many centuries. In contrast to U.S. History assessments, I believe a good way to overcome this obstacle is to use end of unit projects.

The timeline of events in both Carr’s memoir and the forum show students that while time has passed; addiction has only grown to a higher level. Students are educated to the point where they begin to understand that addiction is not a myth nor is it a small simple issue. The realizations offered by the forum and the reality of Carr’s memoir show students that as addiction were rife in the past so it is in the present as more and more people begin to fall into this category.
After several days of taking notes in class, filling out my Value Worksheet and Issues handout, and discovering the results from these handouts, I have concluded my political philosophy is liberal. In addition to these in class activities, my liberal view on many issues has influenced which political party I feel the comfortable with–the Democratic Party–and which political sub-group–the Tea Party–I feel the least comfortable with. However, my liberalness really stands out in the issues I consider important-immigration, education, and healthcare-as I advocate for the people who do not have access to these basic and essential resources. Before figuring out my political philosophy, I considered myself a moderate. As far as I knew, a liberal was someone who promoted radical change, while a conservative was someone who wanted no change at all—neither group seemed appealing to me because of their negative associations.
Every woman in the world has heard at least one “you cannot” in her lifetime. Believe it or not there used to be a time when society believed that statement and women were confined to cooking, cleaning, or housekeeping. Today, there are many amazing women pursuing their dreams, such as Hillary Clinton, a very famous politician, and Sally Ride, the first American woman in space. The women back in the 1840’s are the reason women today have this freedom, the women who changed feminism forever. The women’s suffrage movement was a long-standing battle for equality between men and women that should have been instituted from the start of our country due to women’s increasing political intelligence and work ethic.
