Timbuktu can be considered to be the most famous and one of the most important cities culturally.

“A Madea Halloween” movie will be funny, scary, and dramatic. I believe people should go watch this movie because Tyler Perry has a background for making funny and dramatic movies. In the past, he has produced dramatic movies like Madea’s Big Happy Family and Diary of a Mad Black Woman. From the commercial preview, the movie “A Madea Halloween” will be funny because of Madea's funny voice along with her other great character skills that make an audience laugh. Madea persuaded me that the movie would be funny by knocking the clown out on the T.V.
Even in modern times, Islamisation is still on the rise. Due to the power Islam potentially holds, it is important to understand the relationship between Islam and politics. As Indonesia is home to the largest Muslim population in the world, it would be suitable for use as a key example. In the case of Indonesia, the introduction of Islam can be divided into three phases; from 622 to 1100, as a product of commercial contact with maritime regions of the Indian Ocean through trade that dates back to before the Islamic period; from 1100 to 1500, where the widespread of Islam was focused more on the spiritual belief rather than rituals. In the last phase, which extends from 1500 to current times, Islam continues to influence the culture and literature in Indonesia.
Vowell’s use of hyperbole is very important to this story because it allows the story to have a comedic effect so the story won 't get too serious and then turn into a sad story about a girl who can 't find something in common with her father. An example of how the author uses hyperbole for a comedic effect was when she was talking about the main characters experience with guns.

That the sound that the gun made was as big as God, and the recoil kicked her back to the ground like a bully. The main character claims that her experience was so bad that she doesn 't want to even touch guns

Graphic documentaries, even though some may be too graphic in terms of violence, should still be presented in this class as they help to truly present the oppression Indians have gone through and be memorable for the rest of the students’ lives. Readings such as Custer Died For Your Sins, for example, would be ideal because it is simple to interpret, high school students would enjoy it for its humor and cursing, and because the author, Vine Deloria Jr., is intensely blunt and acute like stories are in dramas, which many high school students in high schools would enjoy. For example, in criticizing anthropologists, Deloria writes, “[Anthropologists] can readily be identified on the reservations. Go into any crowd of people. Pick out a tall gaunt white man wearing Bermuda shorts, a World War II Army Air Force flying jacket, an Australian bush hat, tennis shoes, and packing a large knapsack incorrectly strapped on his back.
In ancient times, for instance, people would gather around and orally create stories, which would eventually be written into book form. Another custom that is shown in both texts is the use of hospitality. Hospitality has been a major theme in most pieces of literature because it agrees that good always wins over evil, which is very clear in these stories.
