She knew that she most do something about in order to them to stop behaving so bad. One day Miss Nelson doesn’t show up to school. A woman in an ugly black dress show up that day Miss Viola Swamp, their new teacher. She is very ugly, strict, and mean. After a few days with Miss Viola Swamp, all the kids start to get worried about that they will never see Miss Nelson again. They come up with all kinds of crazy ideas about she went missing. But none of them could have happened. When the class thinks that they will be stuck with Miss Viola Swamp forever, Miss Nelson show up at school
For my second experiential learning assignment, I decided to break a social norm while going out to eat with my family at a restaurant: granted this is something I have a habit of doing but the reaction I got from my dining mates was particularly interesting this time. To give a little bit of background of the setting I was in at the time, I was with my mother, younger brother, and my mother’s friend at a restaurant in DC for my birthday dinner. The restaurant was crowded, but not many people were paying attention to what we were doing. The behavior I decided to break was dipping my fingers in the container caramel was in and then proceeded lick my fingers after doing so. I choose to break this social norm because one, the caramel sauce was really good, and two I was testing to see if my mother would say anything: normally on my birthday she lets me get away with
BOOM! That was the last thing I heard before I woke up in a F.B.I. interrogation room.
For our group and our shared love of food we figured that a social norm that had something to do with that would be perfect for us. We decided that the norm to drive through a drive thru needed to be tested. Why should cars be the only ones with the fast access to fast food at their convenience? We believed that people should be able to walk through the drive thrus if it is more convenient for them.
Basically, this video talks about social class. In class systems, people are ranked by both birth and individual achievements. Also, people are born into certain social classes, but are able to move through individual effort in class systems. The divide between the rich and the poor is increasing. I believe that richer people have more opportunities. They have the money to pay for expensive schools that poor people don’t have. Income refers to earnings made from investments or work. Wealth refers to the total value of money and other assets minus debt. Wealth includes stocks, bonds, and real estate. Income is more evenly distributed than wealth. I found this speaker to be monotone just like she is every week. It made it extremely hard for me to concentrate.
I believe social classes have defined our society in many ways. In America, they separate people into three different classes: the upper class, middle class, and the lower or working class. Based on wealth and various occupations, social classes determine the population’s status in society. Social classes today define individuals and influence their actions. Although people born in a certain class may choose to stay there, they also have the choice of leaving. I think heritage, circumstances, and choices all define a person’s social class.

Social classes are quite the weird topic to discuss in society. It’s basically saying who is “superior” to who when it comes to talking about wealth, position, or pretty much anything in life. Homeless people are looked down upon for being poor, not dressing properly, and being unkempt, these kind of people are in the lower class. The class above that is the working class, which consists of people with a minimized amounts of education and jobs that don’t provide the good paychecks or the jobs are very dangerous, which means that the bad outweighs the good in this case. Then there’s the middle class, which consists of jobs that pay decent to good money, but not enough money to make them the cream of the crop since the upper class compromises of the rich, which only ranges from 1 to 3% of the U.S population.
And so, this blog finally gets to the story of Esme Delapaz, known to many as the Summerhaven Witch.
Stargirl was a new 10th grader at Mica High School. Attending Mica High was a new experience for Stargirl, since she was homeschooled before. Startgirl had her own sense of style that was different from the other students at Mica High. She wore dresses that covered her shoes and tights with lady bug and the sun printed on the fabric. Her personality was like the sun on her tights, she was friendly and looks on the bright side of things. Stargirl was special and this made her stand out at Mica High. The other students thought she was weird.
Writing is a language. If we take simple words and bluntly put the phrases into paragraphs, it defies the meaning of this broad dialect. I, Abigail Platon, will not only understand this odd, foreign language but make it my own while painting a picture with the power of correct grammar and lines of beautiful word choice. The only way I can find a gateway to this dream is through, one, hard work on my own and, two, in Temple City’s English Honors class. Through this program, I can achieve the goals I desire to complete, either in the academic year or the “foreseeable” future.
Perspective is a chosen approach that can be used to study any subject in the field of sociology. These perspectives highlight the diverse methods an individual selects to analyze a theme and how they perceive the society in general. Three sociological perspectives include functionalist, conflict and interactionist perspectives (Thompson, Hickey, & Thompson, 2016, p. 2). Throughout this paper, I examine how we analyze the role of television from the functional, conflict, and interactionist approaches.
On the last mile, I ran as fast as I could. My Converse seemed to carry me, after I had walked so slow for the two miles before that one. My backpack full of books slammed against the back of my back, forcing me to run faster. As soon as I arrived at my house, I unzipped my backpack and searched around for my house key. The door was jammed, just my luck, so it took twice as long as usual to get
Socioeconomic status is a measurement of a person’s occupation, income and education levels. In most cases, socioeconomic status is perceived as social standing or financial class of an individual. Additionally, it is mostly based on power, influence and control that an individual has over others. Socioeconomic status is a fundamental variable utilized in discerning inequalities particularly in accessing and distributing public resources. Social standing is applicable in a wide range of realms such as behavioral factors as well as social sciences. Therefore, it is worth noting that socioeconomic status greatly affects educational practices and health programs. Firstly, socioeconomic is a powerful contributor to poor health status in most individuals.
Social problems are issues which are considered to affect majority if not all members of a society either directly or indirectly. Whenever people come to live together in a social setting, conflict arises from their differences in opinions regarding political issues, religion, ethnic issues, cultural practices and other health and hygiene issues. In such a situation, we can say a society inevitably develops social problems. The various social issues present today vary from society to society, and as such, we cannot say that all societies face similar social issues. Social problems facing the societies encompass economic, political and human life issues within society. We can also include poverty, wealth, religion,
