"In the Hands of the Restless Poor" Earl Shorris makes the argument that the rich may know humanities, but the poor can work just as hard and learn. I agree with this argument. Shorris took a journey interviewing inmates at the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility were he discovered someone who stood out. Venice Walker had lived a rough life but she restored her education in prison and received a stable education. Shorris soon came up with the idea to have courses to get the poor the humanities to do proper things.
For instance, Confederate monuments would allow generations to see that America isn’t “a place reserved for people who still want to spit our country, but rather a place for education that we can learn from the ugly protraction of our history” (Lanktree). Often, we talk about learning from the past so that the same mistakes won’t occur in the future. This specifically can be represented through these monuments; by having a symbol of the past where racism occurred, it serves as a reminder of what discrimination can do when one side is filled with bigotry. Having a place where one can learn about the effects of someone’s wrongdoings can allow today’s people to decide for themselves the future they want to create. Additionally, the author of the article Keep Confederate monuments, but put their horrific history on stage describes how Americans have been “willfully blind” about racial justice and that the statues could be used as reminders of the “catastrophic consequences” (Cose).

For example, in an article of Academy of Choice a Spring Branch high school by Laura Isensee uses healing circle programs as a new way to discipline students. The healing circle is used to understand the people that were involved in the issue and understand the situation. The healing circle is a way to solve the issues that occurred and have a suitable way of fixing the offense committed. In Academy of Choice they have leadership classes in which they do simulations of the healing circle with students to teach them how a healing circle is processed and finished. Laura Isenesee states, “Students and teachers here have used circles to deal with other problems, like heading off gang fights before they happen or making nasty rumors disappear.”
Her book will go down in history as a means to educate students about the appalling tale of the atrocities committed by John Wilson. Simmie aimed to create a book that would repair Polly Wilson’s,also known as Mary Hutchinson’s, reputation. With each book sold, Simmie continues to accomplish the task of amending the memory of Polly as well as spreading the truth of John Wilson. “In a story carefully reconstructed from letters, police files, and court documents author Lois Simmie creates a book that is a compelling mix of true-crime, history and the vagaries of human nature” (back cover). Simmie proves to reader that though someone may be a person of the law, they may still be capable of horrendous actions and they are not above the persecution of the justice system.
The NHS will be using both treatment and preventative measures as an approach by giving Adam leaflets and information booklets that will give him a better understanding of his diagnosis, so that he knows what to expect throughout university when he doesn’t have his family close by to support him. By having a better understanding of his diagnosis Adam will be able to educate others around him about schizophrenia and make them understand what may happen to him, by doing this the new people he meets wouldn’t be so alarmed at seeing the symptoms that might come about in Adams everyday life, and also because the doctor is giving him medication in order to treat his diagnosis. With Adams condition he has to be entered into a treatment process which is commonly known as a care programme approach, this process is to see if Adam is getting the right medication and treatment for his needs.
Reflective Practice in the Early Years Tools for Practitioners 1. Introduction “We do not learn from experience... we learn from reflecting on experience.” -John Dewey- You have probably heard the term “reflective practice”, but do you really know what this means?
I’ve noticed that when writing a fieldwork you have to be able to step in and step out of the subculture you’re studying. You also must maintain your stand as an outsider and also be very detailed with your description in order to give the reader an insider view and know how it feels like to be part of that subculture. Thus you and the reader will have a deeper understanding of both yourself and the community you’re observing. In her Ethnographic Study "House for the Homeless: A Place to Hang Your Hat," Ivana Nikolic acts like a participant-observer and successfully illustrates the subculture of homelessness in America. Like Rick Zollo, Ivana observes and participates in this subculture to show the ways its members experience the world.
Rhetorical Analysis on Laura Pappano’s Thinking Outside the Box Creativity is the basis of a lot of genius decisions such as computers, gameplays, war tactics – all of that. Laura Pappano claims that creativity should be pushed more in the means adapting to where you live and where you are. Pappano mentions an Introduction to Creative Studies class in Buffalo, New York where a couple of students used their creativity to effectively live in the world today. One student crafted a stall lock for the bathroom since it was broken and another student decided just to sew his body pads to his martial arts uniform. If a person could say their response in the way of how this article appeals to them, they wouldn’t have much to say.
Photography has been something to inform people of things happening but is set apart from things such as a documentary or an article online. It is art. Serena Covkin is a Phd. student at the University of Chicago, she graduated summa cum laude from the University of Pennsylvania with a B.A. in History. She wrote this article to show the impact photography is making especially during the Civil War.
These efforts are focused on federal and state agencies offering fraud protection education to senior citizens through workshops, emails, and postal mailings (Swanson et al., 2012, p. 424). According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (2010), crimes affecting the elderly are based on many factors such as they often have good credit, have a nest egg, and own their own homes. In addition, seniors were raised in a different era where they were taught to be polite and trusting, leaving them susceptible to fraudulent promises of others. Cognitive impairments of this aging population also make them more attractive since they may not be able to supply investigators with enough information to build a case against the perpetrator
In their second objective, they choose to try to raise awareness in the public by holding events in Houston to talk about human trafficking and educate the public on the subject. The third objective is when they start taking charge and working with the police force setting up stakeouts and investigations to help and protect the victims of human trafficking. The fourth objective is to branch out in to public businesses and educate them in human trafficking. They final objective is to make the city of Houston an example and leader of how to get rid of human trafficking in the city. With these hopes and plans to eliminate human trafficking they are decreasing how much of human trafficking is left in
Number one was to define policing as a profession, meaning that the police will publicly serve and protect their communities. Number two was to cut or eliminate the potential influence with politics that it had on policing. Number three is a big one in my opinion, but inserting or hiring the properly qualified chief executives to lead each police departments going forward.
In 1829 Police was seen to focus on crime prevention, deal with legal due processes, and work within local communities more collaborative to fight crime with more efficiency. According to Reith (1975) cited in “The Evolution of Policing” chapter 1, the ‘word’ policing meant management of order behaviour, laws, surveillance, arrests, fines, corporal punishment, as example arresting with use of force. More recently, authors such as Hopkins Burke (2004) defined ‘Policing’ as form of power, the act of persuasion or even assistance to community population, example of that are the cases of payback as salts, killings, forced recovery of stolen goods.
Heroism, Institutions, and the Police Procedural (2009) written by Alasdair McMillan, director and television producer, explains that there is no good and evil standards restricting any character within the HBO series The Wire, created by David Simons. The standards that restrain the hero's in most storytelling has been rendered nonexistent, as well as with what makes the villain a villain. Instead there is no hero or antagonist solely responsible for any one person's actions, especially so as The Wire has no main character, but rather a large cast that takes on multiple storylines within one diverse plot. The argument that McMillan makes within this chapter of The Wire: Decay and American Television, is that no one can be solely good or bad, and they are not entirely responsible for their situation, but rather that a much larger system takes place and controls their actions, namely institutions. McMillan brings to the table what Simons as well as philosophers believed to be the basis of heroism within a story, making alterations to fit their
