“The Wave” is young adult novel based on Ron Jones’ social experiment of the same name. The book features a high school history teacher who finds it difficult to explain how it may have been living in the Third Reich Germany, so he initiated a social experiment named “The Wave” in hope to demonstrate to his students why Hitler rose to power in Germany. As an Air Cadet, this book is overwhelming. For my whole cadet career I have been taught drill, discipline, and nationalism. I used to firmly believe these things will bring the cadet program strength as well as presence, being in the program gives me a sense of empowerment.
Without villains movies, comics and games would not be an intersecting art form. Without these antagonist heroes like Batman won 't be the same without the Joker.

There is something about a maniacal clown going around a city, killing people for no reason other than just for fun people love. The joker is one the most recognizable fictional characters in the world.
Happy Valley Essay When you hear the words Penn State or State College spoken, people 's minds don’t immediately think of the history of sports in Happy Valley or Nittanyville, which what most students of Penn State still call Paternoville.

I’m in the process of seeking representation for my 1st Young Adult/ Children Comedy novel, The Silly Elites, the first in a series, , and given to your previous publications, I think it might fir your list. Richard Korman is a normal student who both wants to study at an Ivy League School and gets rid of his annoying, bossy mother, so he enrolls at Gordan Hill High School, a boarding school that trumpets its high rate of students who go on to Ivy League Schools.

I didn’t know my local bartender was a 9/11 Truther. Boyishly handsome with dirty blond hair and wearing his T-shirt inside out, he appeared to be eavesdropping on me at a Brooklyn tavern last week as I told a friend that I was working on a piece about “Truthers” -- Americans who believe the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, in New York, Washington, D.C., and Pennsylvania were staged or executed not by terrorists but by the American government. “Inside job,” the bartender piped up, without making eye contact. I asked him if he was just making fun or if he was truly a believer himself. “Yeah, man, I’m a believer," he said, pouring me a drink.
Nobody thought that he was going to become an American famous criminal. When Capone started school, he was one of the best students, but when he started failing and found out he had to repeat the 6th grade, he started playing hookie. Once the Prohibition law had been set, it started more crime. That’s when Al Capone became one of the biggest criminals in history. While the Prohibition law was set, Al Capone started selling illegal liquor to people who were desperate.
Normal days for Evan included taking anxiety medicine, watching Netflix, and being interrogated by his mother. Evan had graduated high school early by earning as many high school credits as he could, in middle school. However, this caused even more anxiety to be pushed onto him. Since he was only fourteen, he took college courses online to begin the practice of law early. But today was the worst day of the week for Evan.
In Las Vegas, they get stuck in a casino. In Los Angeles they almost get stretched to death, but they get out of it thanks to Percy’s cunning plans. The three of them reach the underworld, fail to save Percy’s mother and on the way to Olympus (which is back in New York) Percy fights Are’s, the god of war, but returns the lightning bolt, thus finishing the quest. I loved the adventure in the book; it is a captivating story. People who are close to Percy’s age can relate through the thoughts going on in his head.
To the contrary, guns have been banned is school for many years. So this law affects the student community. This new law really got me meditating and deciding whether or no I wanted to support such law really baffled me. There are so many bright sides, yet so many dark sides to both positions. I took a look at the entire picture and found that it was really for the best to let the law pass.

It is my privilege to write a letter recommending Jim Burke, a former student of mine at Rio Americano High School, for admission to Pitzer College. Based on reading “Want to Get into College?’ Learn to Fail,” the article you wrote for Education Week magazine in February, 2012, I am convinced that Jim Burke would be a valuable addition to your student body. Mr. Burke has had a great deal of trouble throughout high school. Jim was less than perfect in school. By not being a responsible and dedicated student, he opened himself up for failure.
During high school Deresiwicz would agree that I lacked “learn to live with risk” quality. As a high school student wanted to do well to get into a prestigious college risk never really appealed to me. Taking a class that would most likely not get me the grade I wanted was practically academic suicide. However, now more so than ever as a college student Deresiwicz words hold merit. Deresiwicz recalls the moment he blew a test for the first time and later goes on to state, “I walked out feeling like I no longer knew who I

The movie gets interesting because you see Bruce Wayne live his life as the billionaire playboy but he gets too busy with his life at Batman that he sort of disappears from the world and he has to choose between his life and his love Rachael or be Batman and save the city. Now Bruce is happy to start having the spotlight turned away from him so he can focus on his life and his life as
What’s the purpose of friendship? Unfortunately, I was forced to learn this the hard way when I attended the ‘Virginia Aerospace Science and Technology Scholars’ Summer Academy over the summer of my junior year. The experience at the academy was unlike any other, but the challenge to make new friends was the most intimidating there than anywhere else that I’ve visited, especially at my own school. Yet, my school holds many of the common and well known people, such as teachers, that I could lean on for mental support, while at the academy had everything but Franklin County. What I meant by ‘but Franklin County’, I am actually referring to the wide varieties of different ethnicities and educational backgrounds that imploded into one single summer
