Benjamin Rush anticipates some benefits for society and the family from extending education opportunities to women. In the eighteenth century, he emphasized that it was very important to educate and train women because it would expand the property and liberty of American society. Well-read women would influence the morals and manners of the country. As Rush supposed, it was essential that knowledgeable and skilled young women would prevent the American society to collapse as the British society. The effective and appropriate education would enhance English language skills for women, so they could teach their children and use it to converse with everyone.
The American Dream is so essential to our country as it is an honor to reach your goals and make it a reality.

By using this structure, she is able to effectively expand her

The United States would gain more voters for the presidential election, keep their military as is, and relief overpopulation in the states. Puerto Ricans are citizens of the United States, which means they could move to the mainland to gain a healthier lifestyle, making them a state would be beneficial for the most part. Puerto Rico being the poorest state should not be a problem, they’d benefit economically and recuperate if granted

Turning to American studies, the rise of African American studies programs brought the Harlem Renaissance to scholarly attention. This shift resulted in many fine individual author studies and preliminary work on gender. The Harlem Renaissance took place at a time when European and white American writers and artists were particularly interested in African American artistic production, in part because of their interest in the “primitive.”Modernist primitivism was a multifaceted phenomenon partly inspired by Freudian psychology, but it tended to extol so-called “primitive” peoples as enjoying a more direct and authentic relationship to the natural world and to simple human feeling than so-called “over-civilized” whites. They therefore were presumed by some to hold the key to the renovation of the arts (“Harlem Renaissance Facts, Information, Picture | Encyclopedia.Com Article about Harlem

The king decides he wants to choose a bride from the most worthy and beautiful in the land, so both Mufaro’s daughters travel to the capital, but in the end only one of the daughters can be chosen. I loved the illustrations in the book, they definitely brought each page to life. Steptoe’s paintings compliment the story as they expand characterizations and setting, they also add depth to the text. Like most stories that are based on a fairytale just like this one, they are fairly predictable, but nonetheless this book was still entertaining. Even though the story line was quite predictable, you still have the need to continue to read to see who the king chooses as his bride.

One of the very influential commanders in the Vietnam war was Defense Secretary McNamara. McMaster does not agree with the way McNamara went about the Vietnam war. He makes it sounds like McNamara was a
