ensure that all students learn to use their minds well, so they may be prepared
One thing that I was anxious to read about was incorporating hands on material for students. Students need to be given many chances to practice what they have learned. Being able to practice is just one aspect of mastering any new skill or concept. There are many important details that should be noted when an educator is choosing hands on materials. I have designed lesson plans
Youth sports in America is a major part to keeping our youth active and out of trouble. Each of the youth sports available today are extraordinary options for children today. However, one sport above all really stands out to me, even if it isn’t my favorite. The sport that stands out above all the rest is youth basketball. It is an extremely fun sport that can be played in organization indoor and also for fun outdoor. It is a very memorable sport and allows youth to excel in the sport in many different areas and not just one. In youth basketball you not only have to be able to dribble and shoot, but also, you must be able to pass and play defense as well. Youth basketball is the total package.
Segregation caused a dramatic split of compromise between different races. Before Martin Luther King Jr. “I have a dream” speech children in America were being segregated for their race or the way they look. There were different schools for the blacks and whites and even different bathrooms. Out in public areas there were places where it was labeled to let people know if they weren’t being welcome here such as the resting place, restaurants, and even groceries. After years of being treated with such unkindness people were finally starting to standing up for themselves and form the American Civil Rights Movement mainly to stop the segregation, but also to brings people together. Martin Luther King Jr. then wrote a speech in which we still remember today. Martin Luther King Jr. himself on August 28, 1963 delivered the “I have a dream” speech publicly, at Washington D.C. Civil Rights March.
The west gave chances for women to develop, challenge their skills, test new talents, and to broaden the scope of their home and community service. Most women, who traveled to the western frontier, went out of necessity, looking for husbands (if single) and new opportunities. Women were tasked with having to do mens work as they traveled to get to the western frontier.
Venetian Masks: the Deception and Protection
of One’s Identity
Wearing a mask helps create a hidden identity. When wearing one, you disclose who you truly are. Your social status can no longer be revealed. Your family is unknown. You are able to act freely.
Utilitarianism, as John Stuart Mill explains it in his philosophical doctrine, Utilitarianism, is the theory of utility that promotes the notion of the “greatest happiness principle” (Mill pg 356). Or in other words, pleasure with the absence of pain as the ultimate human desire. This notion of ultimate gratification is believed to be an invalid application to society by many, because of the confliction between the principle of utility and the principles of justice.
Throughout the book, Their Eyes were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston, Janie goes through multiple relationships that are each different from each other. Her first husband Logan was old and boring, Jody was wealthy and powerful, and Tea Cake was the love of her life, but ended terribly. These three men all start out as good men but the relationships all take a turn whether with Logan who she leaves for Jody, or Jody turning into a sour old man and dying, or the death of Tea Cake after he got rabies. Each man made her feel like a different person. Whether they made her feel like she had to wear the mask and hide her true feelings, or allowed her to be herself while treating her with respect.
Inequality in “A Jury of Her Peers”
Susan Glaspell’s, “A Jury Of Her Peers” is a well appreciated literary classic revolving around the murder of John Wright. Minnie Wright is accused of first degree murder of her husband and is incarcerated until court officials find a motive. Throughout the story, five characters participate in the investigation of this murder. Their job is to find a clue to a motive that will link Minnie Wright, the primary suspect, to the murder. However, the women feel resentment towards the men because they treat the women as second class citizens.
The psychological journal article titled “Commentary on sexual orientation: Research and social policy implications” by Diana Baumrind (1995) was very interesting and informative on the two main subjects of: whether people are born with their sexual identity pre-determined or if it is decided later in life, and the mental health of homosexuals and their acceptance into society. This article makes a lot of good points on both sides of each, so it allows the reader to decide for themselves, even though Baumrind clearly states right in the beginning of the article, “In place of such terms as sexual identity and sexual orientation, some, including myself, who reject the essentialist model use the term sexual preference to connote choice,” (p. 2) she still manages to at least acknowledge the opposing side. I, for one, do believe that homosexuality is not a matter of choice but instead the result of an unbalanced ratio of testosterone/estrogen levels during early development, as later stated in this article.
