At first, I thought I would get lost by attempting to keep track of all of the names of the characters. Yet, the characters did a great job with acknowledging each other by name and not allowing the audience to get lost. Due to the fact that there were so many main characters, I did get a little confused as to where I should focus my attention on stage. There were a lot of funny things going on at once. If I looked in one corner, I would miss action in the other and vice versa.
The reason why students should read more challenging novels are because they learn new things, and they could also learn how to act in a certain situation based on the type of challenging story they read. Many people also feel that this book is irrelevant to student’s lives. However, kids should learn what life would be like for kids at their age in a different time period. Like what was stated before, in a history class, when we learn about the history, we learn about the straight facts, not as much of the personal lives of people living in that time. Since the novel is showing the personal recollections of one boy in the time period, students can identify the similarities between the two lessons.
The film’s moral message is about hate crime against the gay community is wrong. But it doesn’t only show that message, the film is also trying to encourage gay people to come out and not be afraid of being what they are and also educate those who do not understand what being gay means. For example, one interview in particular was about a man who slowly came out to be gay. He never came out because he would feel as if people would bash him in disgust. But he changed his opinion and and came out to being gay when he witnessed a group of people giving respects to Matt Shepard by walking behind a parade.
The Holocaust is a great lesson for the entire world to learn from, and particularly a lesson for the next generation to learn from the mistakes of the past and make sure that they are never repeated again (Why teach The Holocaust?). The Holocaust should be taught to students in schools because it presents decisions that, in the future, may need to be made or even ones that should not have been made, it allows students to see how history could repeat itself, and it instills a sense of appreciation for the freedoms and inclusiveness that we have in our time.
As I was writing this response more and more things were bursting into my head of things that I could write about, that made me feel something. This is one of the things I liked so much about this book. It made me think and theorise. ‘What would happen if…’ ‘Could this really be possible…’ ‘Could our society really resemble one like described in the book?’ Ray Bradbury did an excellent job of conveying his message, so much so that I think it should be mandatory to read this book. Not only because it is so good, but also because it would educate people on issues that are present in our society today, and hopefully prevent our society’s situation, on matters that Fahrenheit 451 covers, from becoming irreparably extreme.
By choosing Kath and Kim I knew the play would be a challenge, because the characters were so familiar amongst the audience. Consequently, it impacted my approach to the performance because I knew I needed to significantly increase my focus and commitment to Kel Knight. This meant treating each rehearsal like the performance, working hard on staying in character and gaining an understanding of who that character was. Also, because Kath and Kim has a very funny script and we chose to make ours funny as well, I was required
I would like to start with what was so shocking for me was that this was not my first encounter with the Laramie Project, it wasn’t my second or third either; I have read and analyzed scenes from this play, discussed it in two other classes, I had the honor to meet two members of the original cast that interviewed the town, and I still had to let some of the pain of these people words and lives wash over me through tears before I was able to start this analyzes. This play that Moisés Kaufman and members of the Tectonic Theater Project created was bold and dangerous and they knew this was something that had to be told, something that still rings true in a world and society that still has leaps and bounds to go before we can honor Matthew 's name and every other named and nameless person ignorantly and hatefully ripped from this earth for something they could not change about themselves, nor should they. I would like to analyze the fathers monologue before he tells Aaron Mckinney that Matthew would not have wanted him sentenced to death; even if that was exactly what he would have wanted to happen. More specifically the line “...he wore braces from the age thirteen until the day he died.” This line was so poignant for me because it really represented how young Matthew really was, and how he
I knew I was good at writing as I was often asked to write for the school magazine or website, but I didn’t know what makes me a good writer. Before attending university, I made a commitment to engage in English classes and join writing workshops, so I could refine my writing. I wanted to learn how to write better essays with a wider range of vocabulary and less grammatical errors. I knew this course would help me improve my writing, though I didn 't know much about the learning process and goals. Through this course, I have realized my weaknesses and strength as a writer and learned how to structure and write an academic essay.
Catherine’s. One way it relates to my career at St. Catherine’s is that it allows me to experience new things. This project relates to my career at St. Catherine’s because I learn something new everyday as I do in subjects at school. I can compare the exit project as a bridge to my new life as a high school student because going from middle school to high school is about having new experiences. The exit project gets us ready for high school because it teaches us not to be afraid of new experiences, to communicate with others, and it prepares us for the rigorous amount of work, high school throws at us.
I want to get the most out of my education and use it to my advantage. I do not only want to be a liberal learner because of the success I would have in class, but also because of the success that it would lead me to outside of school in the real world. From this class I know what it takes to get to where I want to be and I am going to work hard to develop the right characteristics I talked about earlier. There is one saying from a reading we talked about in class that I want to apply in my life starting now. Richard Rodriguez wrote about a poster he saw that said, “Open the doors of your mind with books (Rodriguez 103).” I have never been an avid reader so I want to use this saying to change that.
After reading this adventurous story, it is hard to find the problem that is upsetting many people. Therefore, this incredible novel should continue to be in the high school curriculum because it offers students a realistic historical background, it receives numerous positive reactions, and the meaning of the word nigger, (referred to as the n-word) is changing over time. 5 sentences The Adventures of Huckleberry
During my time in high school, I would get Bs and Cs, but now at Brookdale, I am getting grades I could only dream of and also enjoy learning athte same time. For example, the ALP was tough at first but during all the journals, the freewrites, and the essays were really were not so bad and they were easier because I paid attention to my professor on writing better and to make my emotions on paper,. To summarize how Brookdale was a good choice for me was I met good people, the courses, less money to spend, has a great hands on learning experience, and getting good grades. For all the new students in the ALP, learn and enjoy being in that program because that program really helped me learn two English courses in one semester so that
Many people think it is a good idea to teach kids about the Holocaust in advanced time to prepare them. In addition, it is considerable to teach them exactly what happened so they have more of a feel on how it went down or took place. Not to mention, teaching in this order would get the students ' attention because of how interesting it may seem. If they are taught with more of an understanding and realistic teaching they will want to participate even more. However, not all people agree with this teaching
