In the article by Hass and Flower they discuss how important rhetorical reading is in the way we construct meaning. I agree with them I believe it is important to have a better understanding of what you are reading. While I am someone who is guilty of just getting through a reading to paraphrase I do sometimes struggle with reading between the lines. Something Hass and Flower mentioned that I feel is important in this article is how reading is connected with the way we write. Hass and Flower go on to say that experienced readers understand both reading and writing are context-rich, situational, constructive acts and many students see reading and writing as information exchange.(Pg426)Therefore I think something that should be looked at would be how reading is connected with the way we write which
B.F. Skinner was born as Burrhus Frederic Skinner in Pennsylvania in 1904. Skinner first studied at Hamilton College where he developed a love for writing, and after his graduation he attempted to become a professional writer with no success. Although, throughout his life he did write a few books and several works. One of his most notable books was the novel Walden Two, which was written in 1948.

Skinner was diagnosed with leukemia in 1989 at the age of 85, and he lost the fight with leukemia the following year in 1990.
In this science fair project, I tested if the difference in gender or age has a strong effect on the stroop test in order to understand the stroop effect more in depth. The results shown that adults understood the stroop effect better than other groups of people. I hypothesised that the difference in gender and age had a strong effect on the stroop test and that Kids would understand the stroop test better than adults. The difference in age and gender did affect the outcome of this experiment, however it was the adults that understood the stroop effect the best because of sharp eyesight. In this activity, the amount of time it took for each person to complete the stroop test was in relation to the people I chose to participate in the stroop
The authors conducted a study in regards to the atypical gender development of children. Atypical is a term used to define those who have gender variance and don't yet know what to identify as. Ultimately, the goal of the study is to find if genetic or environmental contributions play a part in the process of defining your gender. To conduct this study, they used the families of opposite twin pairs, along the ages of 3 and 4 to observe the gender development of each. As a result they looked at the boys who were highly feminine and at the girls who were highly feminine compared to others of the same gender. To pursue the study they took the two groups and looked at the behaviors in relation to gender as well as the environment around
The presidency of John F Kennedy was one of controversy both in the past and in the present. There has long been a debate on whether or not he was a good or bad president. He did many things to help the U.S., On the other hand, there are many questionable things that he did that may have hurt the United States.

This scientific question is, does the different kind of gum increase or decrease your concentration? This question was chose because many people in the world always are looking for some tips on what helps them concentrate, and chewing gum is a very easy way to help improve concentration. The Independent Variable is the type of gum, the Control Group is Bubble Gum, the Experimental Group is the Spearmint, the Dependent Variable is test scores, the Constant Variables are same timed test, same timer, and same brand of gum. The hypothesis for this science fair project is if spearmint gum is chewed then the person's concentration will be increased. This hypothesis was picked because spearmint gum is minty and the scientist thought that maybe mint impacted the brain the most. The other two gums that were used in this experiment were Bubblegum and Watermelon. The scientist thought that spearmint would be the fastest in the multiplication and he was not really sure what to expect.

Third, cognitive-motivational factors where children “begin to filter the world through a gendered lens” (Leaper, Friedman 562), interpreting gender related behavior, and forming gender typed expectations. Alexie wrote this specific novel from a male perspective. Which isn’t always a bad thing, but there is a way to write a book from a male lense, while “deconstruct[ing] gendered practices and gendered hierarchies” (Bean, Harper 15), which isn’t the case here. Alexie included a “male gaze” that was all too apparent. Junior apparently is already filtering the world through a gendered lens. Cecire contends that, “with the exception of his mother and his grandmother, he sees women primarily as decoration”, which is completely true. His interactions

John Nash is the subject of the film “A Beautiful Mind.” At the beginning, it was portrayed that he arrives at Princeton soon after the end of the Second World War. As soon as he attended the lecture, his professor said "Mathematicians won the war. Mathematicians broke the Japanese codes and built the A-bomb. Mathematicians like you." Nash felt denigrated with the statement thrown by his professor. Though he was offered a single room in his college, his roommate, Charles, a literature student, greets him as he moves in and soon becomes his best friend. Nash was known for his antisocial behavior that makes him seem a bit strange and distant from other colleagues at first, and later, it becomes clear
