The book I read was "Noah Webster, A Man Who Loved Words." It was written by Elaine Cunningham. The book has twelve chapters. The book has 176 pages in it. This book is a very good book. I would recommend it to anyone my age. The book was kind of sad also. In the beginning of the story, Noah is five. He was always eager to learn. Noah could not wait to learn. When he could go to school, he was so excited. One thing that was upsetting to Noah was that the older boys could only go to school
Noah Webster and the American Dictionary Noah Webster—an 18th century American patriot, copyright pioneer and author of a dictionary that sustains his name centuries later.

American Education in the 1800's In the early 1800’s education in America grew and developed rapidly, largely because of the works of three very important men: Noah Webster, William McGuffey, and Horace Mann. These three men were catalysts for the growth of education throughout the nineteenth century, and without them the large strides America took during this time would not have occurred. These great men all shared one goal: to educate the youth of America as well as possible. This was no small
move on to opinions based on facts on the last page. On the first side of this debate, we have evolution. Merriam Webster defines evolution, simply, as “a process of slow change and development”. In biology, it defines evolution as “a theory that the differences between modern plants and animals are because of changes that happened by a natural process over a very long time” (Merriam Webster, 2014). It is important to note that this idea is a theory. A theory is a system of ideas used to explain something
morals and manners. The intellectual pursuits for women comprised of history, poetry, philosophy and religious texts counterbalanced with language and music lessons. Noah Webster advocated for public education for the people of America. His decision was made with his daughters in mind since he wanted them to get a good education. Webster education plan proposed that male and female students get a different education experience. His public education system would not discriminate against social classes
Appearance of American English: I believe that most of us must have this experience that when we look up a word in a dictionary we'll find the word "BrE' or "AmE" marked behind the very word. "BrE" here means British English (herein called BrE) while AmE means American English (herein called AmE). So I can say that AmE has been more and more popular throughout the English--speaking countries, especially among the young people. To a certain extend it has become more common than BrE. Then how

According to Webster, a Conspiracy is “an agreement between two or more persons, to commit some crime in concert; particularly a combination to commit treason, or excite sedition or insurrection against the government of a state; a plot” (“Conspiracy.” An American Dictionary of the English Language; exhibiting the origin, orthography, and pronunciations of words.

educational plans. Jefferson, as we all know, wrote the Declaration of Independence and later became the third President. Robert Coram was a young man who worked for a Republican newspaper in Delaware. He based most of his plan on the works of Noah Webster, who was a supporter of public schools. The objective of this essay is to determine which person's plan is more democratic. Before that can be established, I think a definition of democracy should be stated so that it may be called upon later
