In Is American Psychological Research Generalizable to Other Cultures, two psychologist, Gerald Haeffel and Jeffery Arnett discuss their reason for supporting their beliefs on the topic of American psychological research generalization to other cultures. This is an important topic within psychology because the decision on what to do will affect how psychologist are allowed to do studies and it could also possible make it harder to construct research because the participant will be harder to find. This will be harder because right now most psychological research is done at colleges and university and that will not be able to happen if they need to find people and participants from all over the world. Summary: In this reading they are discussing
Now we see that it ranges anyway from poverty to not have guidance from a counselor at a younger age. All these things are very important in making kids not want to go and deterring them away. So in the future we will all have to play a part in making this change so everyone gets a chance to go to college, because it is very important and can lead to a better chance at life and a future for some of these kids and without it they might not get the chance to do what they want with their lives. Further research could have been done if I had more time. It would have progressed my paper and maybe I could have talked to some of my family members who didn't attend college and find out their reasons.
Racism stood as one of the world’s major issues for the past few decades. Yet many people are not aware of how much racism still exists in our schools, workforces, and basically anywhere social lives are occurring. Though the prolonged fight for equal human rights is continuing its progress, racism still lives. It just evolved from the earlier violent and aggressive forms of racism have into a more subtle form of prejudice, reducing the chances of showing, but there are definitely revealed signs of it. In fact, the ideology underlying racism can become manifest in many aspects of social life if being payed attention to.
His family experienced hurt in more ways than one, they experienced both physical and mental pain. Though this could be said to be a good thing, Jem and Scout both matured majorly and lost their childhood innocence. Also through the court case and the hearings before the end of the book, the children's view of atticus changed in a negative way, they saw him as less of a father than others and saw his age affecting him. Though one of the largest drawbacks was Bob Ewell's threat which caused mental pain and his attacking of the children." ...
Many believed the accusations, and even though there were many inconsistencies were found in the accuser’s testimonies the defendants were still considered guilty before the trial had even begun due to their skin color. During the time of the Scottsboro trials a woman told the story of “the mistreatment suffered by the two white girls at the hands of those horrible black brutes” (Ransdell, The First Scottsboro Trials). This woman was telling the story about an incident she did not witness but is certain these young men are guilty of. Atticus Finch also knew the outcomes of the Tom Robinson Case before it occurred. He stated in a conversation with a fellow citizen, “that boy might go to the chair, but he’s not going till the truth’s told” (Lee 195).
In today’s world, we are subconsciously encouraged to be normal. Normally, unique ideas are often shamed before they can come to life. In David Wallace’s commencement speech to Kenyon University's graduating master students, he urged students to go against the norm and think for themselves. His method of encouragement was a bit unusual but, consequently, the students will take what he asserted into account due to his unusual, but persuasive style. Throughout this speech, Wallace deviates from one example to the next, but he stayed consistent in encouraging students to think for themselves instead of being like a rat in a machine to get cheese.
I’m just going to start off by saying this some of these stories in here have only been heard by a few people, others have been heard multiple times. Sioux Falls is the largest town in South Dakota, unfortunately that 's only where a small portion of the story takes place. Instead the story occurs in a small town west of sioux falls, called hartford. It has a population of about 3,000 people, but also has 10,000 rumors. I have lived hartford and the same house for all my life.
Throughout my whole life, I’ve been bullied and even though at a young age around eight you still get bullied. I went to a Native American school and at that time I was a lighter color than the other students and they would call me names. I continued to go there until about fifth grade and I was continually bullied then I went to a different school, there I was hoping for a good time but I soon would discover the truth. Sixth grade wasn’t the best year of my life, but it certainly wasn’t the worst even though at my old school the Native American one I had good grades, but sixth grade my grades were dropping that started a streak that would continue for a while.
My favorite quote from Jackie Robinson is, “above everything else, I hate to lose.” That perfectly sums up my attitude towards grades, and for me, any final grade below 90, is losing. Using determination and commitment, I was able to win, and not lose, in the first semester of my freshman year. It is hard for every kid to make the transition to high school classes, but coming from a small private school with about 250 kids to an enormous high school with almost 2000, I had no idea what to expect. After 3 years of hearing my older sister complain about horrible teachers, hard finals, and difficult SAT’s
PG.2 In 1948, Samuel J. Battle was hired as the first police officer in history. The firsts police officers were not permitted to arrest white men, also black police officers were unable to operate out of the regular police stationed. In Atlanta, black police officers were forced to operate out of the basement from the local “colored” YMCA. The mayor and police chief of Atlanta were worried that if black men in uniform showed their faces in headquarters, the white cops would riot and attack them," Karen Grigsby Bates.
In 1954 the Supreme Court decided to make a historic decision and made it unconstitutional to make public schools segregated. 3 years after segregation was banned the south was still not accepting of the new rule so when nine students in Little Rock, Arkansas tried to join the white high school they were not accepted. At first, there were huge protests and violence to stop the kids but that still did not work. After that, the state called in the National Guard to keep the kids out but the kids became so popular in the news that the president sent in the actual Army to protect the kids and keep the rioters out. 5 years after that was a big step for the University of Mississippi because their first black student was admitted in 1962.
Education is so important for the kids later on; however, in this period of time the kids went to school because their master forced them to go to take care the white children. Walter Calloway was born in Richmond, Virginia, in 1848. He response, “…, we didn’ git no schoolin’ ’cep’in befo’ we got big ‘nough to wuk in de fiel’ we go ‘long to school wid de white chillum to take care of ‘em.” Some slaves might lucky that their master would teach them the alphabets only. Victoria Adams was live in plantation of Samuel Black in Cedar Creek; she was ninety years old.
When I was in fifth grade, I had my very first fight. It wasn’t exactly my choice, and I would have prefered to escape this particular fight, but that wasn’t an option. I was dealing with multiple bullies for a few years, but I’d say fifth grade was the worst of them all. The fight happened just after my P.E. class.
Is Being a Deaf African American Hard? The reason why I chose to do my paper on Black Deaf Americans was because of my Granddad and my cousin. My Granddad lost his hearing later in life, and my cousin was born deaf. When my granddad lost his hearing, I wasn’t born. He did not lose his hearing totally, so he was able to use hearing aids to help him hear, and he never connected with the Deaf Society.
In the principal’s office, for example, I have only been there once. I called two people “gay” in 5th grade. It was a bad choice and at the time, I didn’t even know what the word “gay” meant. The only reason I said it was because everyone else was saying that. I went to the principal’s office and will never forget it.
