However I do feel that the most important criteria to look at would be originality. Is this piece of literature original, or is it too close to another book? In my personal opinion i believe Hillenbrand’s “Unbroken” is a beautifully tragic story with a kind ending. I loved how she kept even the tiniest details like the times he ran in high school. It was such a trivial thing and while i understand it is important in a biography such as this, there are so many authors out there who could have just brushed over the exact times and just said he set records on pages 39 and 40.
As a result of his opinions, the argument is very convincing because he explains in depth how the Constitution will benefit the people in many ways. In one instance, he makes a point about how the people will forget that the government needs to have a loser grip on it people compared to the British, then explains how “it will be equally forgotten that the vigor of government is essential to the security of liberty” (Hamilton
(4.). In conclusion, I believe that The Butcher’s Tale: Murder and Anti-Semitism in a German Town, is a book that can be read by both students and adults. The plot of the book is very fluid, so even though the book deals with an important topic as Anti-Semitism, the fluidity that the book presents, renders it also a pleasant reading for almost everyone. The author, Helmut Walser Smith, did a magnificent job with this book, he was able to combine both adventure and investigation, with the analysis of Anti-Semitism and its roots. This book could also be used as a source of information in schools, in order to show the students how Anti-Semitism was rooted in the 19th and 20th centuries, since it demonstrates how this feeling was perceived by both the accusers and the indicted.
He repeats the word “To” when he is talking about the muslim religion, the poor people of our nation, and to the leaders of other nations who are out to seek conflict. Obama's use of the anaphoras was effective, but I feel he could’ve used more. Another section of Obama's speech he almost seems as if he is trying to calm down the american people from a state of panic. He says “ Starting today, we must pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and begin again the work of remaking America.” I think it was smart of Obama to put this in his speech because its very positive for americans to hear that. This section stood out to me because i like the fact that he's not telling the people to panic, he's basically saying stop crying, get up and do something about
In particular, Whitehead’s use of imagery, character interactions and figurative language brings to attention aspects of race relations that were and are still often misunderstood or disregarded by society. It is important to note, however, that the oppressed do not remain oppressed forever as demonstrated by heroine Cora’s persisting efforts to break free. Thus, through his uncensored narrative of slavery, Whitehead sets precedence for the impassioned social resistance movements in the modern era by arguing that the most enduring road is
It 's overall message has sparked love from readers everywhere but the book has also sparked wild discussions about its content and if it should be taught in schools across the country. Although The Catcher In The Rye presents strong sexual themes and vulgar language, these aspects showcase the characters ' deepest emotions while staying true to the human experience and the power of language. The very same issues that cause the catcher in the rye to climb the banned book list, sexual themes and vulgar language, are exactly the things that make this piece worth teaching in high school curriculums, as they show readers the truest
Since it brings up issues of race and fairness which still exist in our society today, it is still broadly relevant. A lot of students these days can relate to many of the lessons from the book, and racism is an obvious good one. Children will eventually become aware of this, and it is better for them to get to know about this kind of issues at school since it is a reliable place for students. To Kill a Mockingbird is as relevant today as it was in the
The movie, Freedom Writers did a very good job displaying the poor education system that was changing the lives of students already barely surviving in the violence and gangs. The use of the comparison of visuals what something the producers seemed to commonly use. The comparison of good to poor school materials was agonizing to see, especially with a up-close shot to Mrs. Gruwell trying to keep a smile on her face. Children are the future of our world, but many still will disown kids that aren 't the same ethnic background. Realizing this was essential, and luckily Erin Gruwell was able to do it and ultimately save her kids lives.
A major cause of crime is lack of jobs; the government website (GOV.UK,2014) states that they have policies in place that supports individuals through the benefit system to push them into long term jobs. This will produce a domino effect causing more and more people to get a job if the support is being offered, whilst managed to protect everyone’s rights. The next field of government policy makers take to prevent crime is increasing the minimum wage. By raising the per hour rate, people will be having a greater household income; decreasing the amount of people needing to commit crime to gain money. BBC Politics state that ‘the minimum wage has been the most successful policy’ as well as the most beneficial policy in the last 30 years.
Over the last 40 years, we have spent trillions of dollars on the failed and ineffective War on Drugs (Aclu). Drug use has not declined and drug markets are become more resilient to the mass incarceration of drug offenders. There is always another drug dealer standing by, ready to replace the one who has been sent to prison. Along with the War on Drugs, the changes in sentencing policies contributed to higher levels of incarceration at both the state and federal levels. Mandatory minimum sentences were established as the response to complaints from politicians and the public that offenders weren’t serving long enough terms for their convictions.
