For instance, for this student, before reading this book, I would categorize this different types of abuse differently, from more severe to less severe, and perhaps giving less importance to those I viewed as less severe. But it is important to understand that for each of these victims, each abuse was very serious, very severe, and they should be treated equally. This book is also a great source of understanding for those who were perpetrators of abuse, especially against children, it will help them to understand the consequences of their actions, and how perhaps once act, have completely changed the life of a child. This book is also important to parents and those who work with children, when we, as adults understands the risks that children, adolescents and any person who is not able to protect themselves are facing, we hopefully can be more vigilant of children, women and any possible
Bias and the Law relates to my goals as an educator because it will help me gain a better perspective on which people with disabilities and special education are viewed in society.

I believe learning about this subject can give a huge value on everyone 's mentality. It is nice to learn about things that happened to different races and how they overcame such things. The more that you know, the better. I felt like if I did not get taught this material, I would never have known about such an empowering movement. I believe I offered all four levels of oppression in my essay.
The argument that this scenario makes people too uncomfortable in schools is the very reason why it should continue being taught. Those who are uneasy seeing this racism so clearly are the same people who need to be exposed to it so explicitly.

In order to answer the question of how technology, critical thinking, problem solving, and student passion impact the education in American teachers should dissect the needs of the current generation. America has “a tendency to look around at what others are doing and use them as a standard of comparison” (Schwartz 21) but with education that is not acceptable. Policy makers and educators need to ensure that students receive a relevant education where rigor is paramount while embracing problem solving. Educators need to teach students to use technology responsibly as the internet is loaded with fake news, satire, and unsubstantiated facts that many have trouble weeding through. If teachers use technology correctly, they can give students more choice over their learning because “when people have no choice, life is unbearable”
The typical American classroom is becoming more diverse culturally, which warrants the need to be more educated about student differences. The educator has to be aware of students’ backgrounds, in order to help them grow as learners. Understanding different cultures ensures the ability to meet the students where they are to better educate them. Each learner is different, and it is helpful to know they best way to teach students from different races and cultures. By educating future teachers, exploring culturally diverse schools, and learning about racism and culture through museums, the teaching work force will be better equipped for educating all children, or Americans future.
English-language learners (ELLs) with special needs belong to a minority group and require specific direction for educators on how to help these students in the school context and how to help to improve their educational outcomes. This is one of the most important topics in the field of education in the USA. The main issue of the teachers is to decrease the achievement gap between ELLs and their peers. Though, the educational needs of ELLs are diverse and rather complicated. English language learners face many obstacles due to their cultural and linguistic diversity.
In one of our course readings titled “On Being Included” by Sara Ahmed, Ahmed writes about “institutional flows” and how diversity practitioners sensed that they were going against the flow when trying to address issues of racism. “The wall symbolizes institutional immobility and an institutional “no”. (pp. 129, 176). Ahmed describes diversity activists as “being in complicated and messy situations” based on the 21 interviews as well as her own experiences (pp. 7, 10). She states that they want to get universities, as institutions to not only acknowledge, but discuss and act on issues of racism diversity.
“An Ode To Being Blaxican Shines A Light On An Erased Identity” written by Shanna Collins. This article is written about Dolores Morado, a brown grandma raising her biracial kids and grandkids. She wanted to raise them with both Mexican and Black cultures in her household. But once her family found out that she was pregnant with a black man, they let her know right away that she’d have problems with society. She was prepared with all the rude comments they’d give her.
I am interested in diversity for my storybook. The theme “diversity” is important for children to live in diversity world. Diversity is better to learn as soon as possible from children because the rejection about differences is hard to change after the segregation is formed in mind. Most children are built the images about the different ethnicities by what they read, see and hear. Since people’s perspective is formed when they are little, how parents educate children is important.
African American Studies was a great experience. Has opened my eyes to my surrounding and the world around me. This course with Dr. Sheba Lo, was something out of me confront zone. I learned so many things from race to cultural to the importance aspect of African American. We are isolated to an environment that hide so much history that we all don’t think they are important to who we have become.
Being Yourself Identity is something unique that everybody has, and it is what makes us be what we are. We are part of a crowded society yet, we are all different. Every person has different personality, characteristics and behave differently. It depends on how we show ourselves in this society as Nancy Mairs and David Sedaris did.
