American historian, Russell Kirk once said, “True education is meant to develop the individual human being, the person, rather than to serve the state.” A liberal arts education focuses on developing students into productive citizens by preparing them for future careers, while building their character. Seen as a new approach for further insight and critical thinking, a liberal arts education provides students with a broader worldview for general understanding and problem solving. In his article, “The New Liberal Arts,” Sanford J. Ungar combats common liberal arts misperceptions that prevent future students from attaining a liberal arts degree. Many students believe a liberal arts education is irrelevant; thus, leaving students to futilely
Many counterparts can be drawn between good and evil in The Crucible, and Miller’s juxtaposition of the characters shows the audience how one person acting with integrity can influence a society for good, and vice versa.

What if individuals accept the worse and when offered something better, they believe they don’t deserve it? George’s character is somewhat insinuating this because of his abilities he deserved to be handicapped, and if he does something out of the way he needs more punishment. I chose George because I believed that he depicted what was wrong with the society and how that we let higher ranking people tell us what we deserve. George is a smart individual, and knows that his government is wrong, yet does nothing. In some cases aren’t all individuals
However, of the very few, Miller creates a character who makes an important contrast to these corrupt people. The Crucible teaches its readers the true application of authority along with the misuses of it. To begin with, the people of higher social status utilizes their position for their own gain. Parris uses his position as minister to make absurd demands. For instance, he complains that he is underpaid and request for two items: a higher salary and the deed of the meeting house.
John J. Theis provided an interesting argument with several tenets in class. I will first describe my understanding of his argument, then important contemporary reasons why I disagree with his presentation. Theis in his writing and the in-class presentation communicated a severe emphasis on education and civic literacy; this leads me to believe that his first premise would include educational institutions and their importance on the lives of those dwelling in a functioning semi-democratic society. The first premise is a quote from Horace Mann, which was included in the reading document, “Democracy requires educated citizens.” His second premise would be “Current civic education is inadequate to equip people, especially students to be active,
Maxwell points out that "trust is the foundation of leadership." Where there is a lack of trust ; there is poor job satisfaction, poor loyalty which is important for the leader and follower. (1998) According to Bonan and Deal " leaders build diverse teams which accommodate different skills and processes. Leadership is situated in both relationships and teams. Procter and Fulop claim that human relationships are core to a team.
In “A Homemade Education,” Malcolm X uses point of view, setting, and characters as narrative elements to address the issue of not being exposed to valuable knowledge he aspired to obtain through learning. Malcolm X establishes himself and his narrative by using first person point of view which allows his audience to know and understand his issue surrounding learning directly from the source. In “A Homemade Education” we also see significance in our author's choice of setting for his narrative; the setting makes a powerful impact on his learning style and abilities when it comes to the issue he is facing. He also takes the characters he mentioned in his piece into account when describing his situation through a narrative in order to aid his
Education is the act or process of imparting or acquiring general knowledge, developing the powers of reasoning and judgment, and generally of preparing oneself or others intellectually for mature life. In each essay, all three authors ward against the dangers with the education system of their era. Whether it be diversity, segregation or the goals of the system itself the authors believe changes need to be made, as education systems form the future leaders of our society. Through their text the authors believe they must solve the faults within the education systems, to conform society to what they believe is morally and ethically correct. In Carter G. Woodson’s the Miseducation of The Negro, the fundamental question against the education
One outstanding critic of propaganda theory was philosopher John Dewey. These two scholars have different views on propaganda; firstly Lasswell feels that Propaganda was an essential tool that had to be used to effectively manage modern social orders, especially when they are in deadly competition with other nations that rely on propaganda to mobilize their
Overall, historians and theorists have predicated the Cold War as a learning experience for future decision-making. However, one can draw similarities in current military actions, like Iraq and Afghanistan, where those can argue not much has changed in the demeanor and action of military leadership to civilian leadership. Overall, Betts provides a thoroughly researched and structured framework for the reader to analyze historical evidence from a different perspective but I found his conclusions to be inherently flawed. Bibliography: Betts, Richard K. Soldiers, Statesmen, and Cold War Crises. Cambridge: Harvard UP, 1977.

What I learned that certain events may occur and it will change your thought over something. The steps I had to take was to write a outline overview of what my essay was going to be like and think about the argument and claims I had to pick to support it and find quotes in the book that support my claims. We had to do timed essay about are theme of the essay were going to on. The way we wrote the essay was in TIED format because it would be easier to introduce the claim and back it up with evidence and finally discuss what it means. The leadership skill I used was to complete project effectively because I had to concentrate what I was writing about.
Geoffrey Sirc wrote “The Autobiography of Malcolm X as a Basic Writing Text” to convey to his students and all students of literature that this book “teaches the importance of passion and strength of character” that these are “essential attributes to growth as a writer.” This journal article reaffirms the reason why all students should be required to read the book and Sirc states that autobiography allows the student to develop a deeper understanding of how to be inquisitive when confronted with stereotypes or ignorance. The affirmation comes in the form of a quote from Malcolm X in the epilogue of the book “People don’t realize how a man’s life can be changed by one book” (X and Haley 400) and the impact that statement would have on future
There are different indications of decline that are used as a measurement. These include the political culture and level of respect for the authority of government and the faith of citizens in a government, education, and culture wars. Culture wars are the social issues that cause conflict amongst citizens, like gay marriage, gun control, and abortion. Whereas education is the most important because fewer and fewer people understand how the government works. This allows for people to over react or under react because they don’t understand what’s going on, which is one of Nye’s key
