On April 15, 1865, President Abraham Lincoln was shot and killed in Ford’s Theater by John Wilkes Booth. On July 7, 1865, Mary Elizabeth Surratt was hanged with charges of aiding the assassins. Owner of a boarding house in Washington D.C. during the Civil War, she was thought to have previously owned a safe house for the Confederates underground. Though she had a quiet childhood and normal marriage, her life took an unexpected turn for the worse by the year of 1861. Surratt was a Confederate sympathizer and often housed rebel spies, which did not help her in the trial.
That was the best day of my life. 10th grade was not as cool as 9th grade. 10th these people would stare at me like in a mean until I find out that it was this mean girl in school she hated every one and she had two girls that would walk with her everywhere she went. The girls looked mean. One day as I was walking down the hall and one of the girl tried to trip me
Friends became a problem, as suddenly they were getting boyfriends and girlfriends. They left me and their other friends for the ones they supposedly loved. So I lost a few friends. Then it was that year when it was a dramatic change in the standards for all classes. Common Core was introduced, and soon we were being taught stuff that was taught in the eighth grade before.
Another good thing about this year is I actually found a haircut that I like, and unlike the sad excuse of a haircut at the beginning of the year. One thing that I remember really well is the giant immigration project that we did. That thing was, oh boy let me tell you, it was stressful. We had to do so much preparation for that project, it was like studying for the constitution test. When we actually did the actual immigration thing
In all this joy and excitement, Mary’s health was plummeting. She suffered with severe depression with Thomas missing and the overwhelming job of taking care of three children. Thomas took her on a simple vacation but they returned early because Mary’s father was ill. His death was a complete disaster to Mary and her depression continued to increase. She also became ill and died On August 9, 1884, just before her thirtieth birthday.
Sadly, it was the end of summer and it was the year I was going into 7th grade for junior high! I spent a long time trying to find the perfect school. The junior high all of my friends were going to was Desert Ridge, which was a huge school with many long hallways that never end. It was very close and convenient to our house. My family and I also found a school called GCA.
Though both powerful and mighty Queens, Elizabeth and Mary had very different journeys to their thrones. Mary was a Queen when she was six days old. Elizabeth had to endure two half siblings ruling England until she would become Queen. Their early lives shed a light on just how each monarchy was different in every way. Mary, Queen of Scots
Sophomore year, I learned more about hard work than ever in my life so far. I doubled up in science, I was constantly bogged down by copious English assignments, and my basketball coach pushed me further than anyone had ever before. I made a lot of bittersweet memories in the hot, musty OAC that winter during those practices. Junior year was an absolute blur. I made an effort to engage in my friendships and learn more about the people around me.
I really like that my school rewarded us for doing well in our classes, but they did it at the end of the year for a grand finally of the school year. I believe at the end of that year was when I started being a good student. I found out how important it was to get good grades. As soon as everybody was on the bus we started our trip to Six
My brother uses a crucible, such as a container when he is working at his job so that he can separate the metals that are being heated. There was a crucible, a problem, between Sarah and Ally because they were not being honest in their friendship. Gigi was so contentious that she started talking back to the teacher that lead her to getting a detention.
Queen Mary of the Scots got killed following an order that got given by her cousin, Queen Elizabeth. Queen Mary got implicated in the Babington Plot. Mary was arrested on 11 August 1586 while she was out riding and was taken to Tixall. The article below discusses the sympathetic account of Queen Mary.
Then I got there and realized it wasn’t that bad. We read books, counted numbers, and learned d 'nealian handwriting. My favorite part of the day was recess. I liked that we were able to go outside and play for a while. Although, I was also a bit hesitant.
A Year of Change It's amazing just how much can change in a short period of time, and this year has shown me that more than anything else. I don't remember much about learning to read and write. I'm sure it was an average experience and I learned to read and write in first grade like everyone else.
I had many fun experiences in 8th grade. Although I am very excited to move on to highschool, I will miss 8th grade as well. I learned many things in 8th grade. I learned a lot about U.S. history and I found physics very interesting. Algebra and Spanish, the two high school classes that I took this year were quite challenging but very rewarding.
Kindergarten to 8th grade I attended a private school called Holy Family Catholic School. The school was very small along with classes, teachers extremely strict and hallways always quiet, the totally opposite from Dr. Henry A. Wise. My first day of high school I was very nervous I was not used to big classes, endless amount of students in the halls and the loud ruckus. This was an educational challenge for me because it was a totally different learning environment for me that i had to get used to quickly. My studying habits also challenged me through high school because test and quizzes were given out frequently and if you didn't know how to study you probably wouldn’t get a good grade.
