Jellyby with another kind of telescopic gaze – that of the two narrators. ”(pg86) It is clear that Dickens is satirizing Victorian society and its foolish pride in philanthropy while its own poor suffer. Deborah Wynne then provides us with an interesting outlook in her socio-historical article titled “Reading Victorian Rags: Recycling, Redemption, and Dickens's Ragged Children.” She discusses how rags were ‘transformed’ and were highly useful in this era.
Yafa writes about Boston businessmen who made Lowell, Massachusetts the first planned industrial community. The mills (factories) were built, and instead of using men to run the textile (fabrics) mills, the Boston Associates used “healthy, young, farm girls to work the mills.” Often the girls were very young and were separated from their families, lived in boarding houses, and saved some of their very low wages to send back home to their parents and to save up for their dowries (to give to future husbands).

Phenomenon of evil in the human heart Evil is a sin, it is a force in nature that presides over, and gives rise to wickedness and corruption. Some may think of evil as a separation from God and usually can be personified by the form of Satan. Phenomenon of evil can exist in many forms that can be hidden within ourselves and others. In the short story "Young Goodman Brown, by Nathaniel Hawthorne, Hawthorne writes about a man whose faith cannot save him from the evil that lies around him and others. In "The Cask of Amontillado" Edgar Allen Poe illustrates that evil can be revealed through revenge, and it only brings malice and cruelty to this world.
Mark Twain's The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is a classic novel used to enlighten people about the offenses of social institutions of the 19th century. It is through Mark Twain's main character Huckleberry Finn, a twelve year old boy, that we observe these misdeeds of society.

These stereotypes and misconceptions have evolved overtime for a reason. There is an exaggerated truth about private school kids. The first private schools were established by Roman Catholic churches. These schools were initially built before public school, but only allow specific children to attend. Like today, these schools are for those parents who want a better education for their children.
William Shakespeare has created many fascinating characters and the most fascinating being the villains. They comprise of the worst of human vice yet their motives are surprisingly real and easy to relate to with jealousy hatred heartbreak and bitterness. There are a number of villains present in Shakespearean plays like Shylock from The Merchant of Venice, Don John from Much Ado About Nothing, Claudius from Hamlet, Richard iii, Iago from Othello.

The girls did get very little education, they learned enough reading, writing, and arithmetic to read their Bibles and be able to record household damages and that is the maximum amount of schooling they would get in a lifetime!
The motivations of the crusaders whose names have been largely forgotten is much more uncertain. As mentioned in an earlier paragraph Urban made appeals that listed both secular and religious reasons to join. Some have argued that since most of the crusaders made no money from the crusade that they were not motivated by a desire for material goods when they joined. This argument is supported by the fact that most of the crusader army returned to Europe rather than staying in the new crusader states which indicates that they didn 't join in order to gain land. However just because the crusaders made no money doesn 't prove that greed didn 't inspire people to join.
After the American Revolution, the newly formed United States of America was substantially unstable as there was increasing economic and social unrest. The first written documents of constitutional authority were generally weak and ineffective. As a result, there was unrest among the colonists, and this created the urge for a newly reformed government system. The proclaimed Founding Fathers took action and put forward what they thought would be the best remedy to the new nation. Some call the Founding Fathers “democratic reformers”, however, this opinion is overall misguided and uninformed, as the Constitution and the actions taken by the Founding Fathers did not represent the majority of the people in the new nation.
It was called The Common School Period because education transformed from a completely private, costly thing to a luxury that was available to the common masses. With public education, social class separation was not as extreme as it had been in the past, but still continued to occur in some areas. The people in the lower classes originally gained minimal instruction, such as learning how to read and write, calculate, and receive religious instruction, while the upper classes were more entitled to pursuing a higher education in secondary schools and even continue their schooling at the university level. Though some social class separation still lingered, education was made mostly to fit common standards. In 1837, Horace Mann, one of the great education reformers, created grade levels, common standards to reach those said grade levels, and mandatory attendance.
There is a misconception that higher standards and stricter honor codes would lead to less plagiarism. The opposite seems to be true. From the first documented honor code in 1736, faculty and students have been required to take the honor pledge and still have to this day. But solely stating the honor code has not proven to improve the integrity of students. These codes are expected to be lived by but have done nothing but become a burden to students and faculty.
