be placed into a certain cohort. This means children can be almost a year younger than some of the others in the same cohort. At a young age, a matter of months can bring about substantial development, therefore, it's not surprising that the impact of relative-age on educational attainments is a much debated topic. A recent newspaper article was titled: "An age-old problem: Why can't summer-born children start school later?" (Cassidy, 2014). In the UK, children begin school aged five. However, there
Age can be defined in a number of ways. Before defining this process, it is important to consider that there four approaches to this culturally significant phenomenon. The most straightforward of these is chronological age, which is the number of years old a person is. Your biological age is measured against the change your body experiences physically, and the deteriorating functionality of it. The third way to define age is psychologically.

The Age of Responsibility is a really hard topic to discuss. Around the U.S. we have many different ages that determine adulthood. This needs to be discussed about to determine the age of adulthood for all states here in the U.S. because we have so many that we don’t even know what the age of adulthood is anymore.

The Church in the Middle Ages RELIGION [IMAGE]The Catholic Church was the only church in Europe during the Middle Ages, and it had its own laws and large funds. Church leaders such as bishops and archbishops were on the king's council and played leading roles in government.

Middle Ages Every time period is defined by certain events, certain aspects of that period’s culture, and certain people. The Middle Ages are not an exception. The Middle Ages lasted from about AD 350 to about 1450. At the beginning of the Middle Ages, the western half of the Roman Empire began to fragment into smaller, weaker kingdoms. By the end of the Middle Ages, many modern European states had taken shape. During this time, the precursors of many modern institutions, such as universities and

may be explored in the Age of Discovery. Fomented during a time of expanding knowledge and burgeoning expansion of international trade, the fifteenth through the seventeenth centuries saw an explosion of European conscience of the known world. A systematic visitation of key parts of this period will garner a greater appreciation for the dawning of global discovery. Integral to any review of a historical period is a careful look at the important factors contributing to the age in question. Building
