I decided to change it to "Unreliable Fairytales. " This title makes the reader wonder what fairytales I am talking about, and how they are unreliable. Also, it relates to my paper because Disney Princesses are a sort of fairytale, and the argument that Stephanie Hanes gives is about the unreliable, negative effects
For the final exam, the class was instructed to present a story and tell how it relates to one of Dale Carnegie’s principles. I chose to use principal 8 from part 3, Try honestly to see things from the other persons point of view. The story I decided to tell was about my mother’s drug addiction and how I never gave her the chance to explain her side of the story. These are two thing I think I did well.
We used the example of the hare and the tortoise that the moral could be very different depending on what you need to take away. It could be slow and steady wins the race, don 't judge a book by its cover, or don 't sleep on the job. Using the hare and the tortoise story that is familiar to non- Indian students, allows students to learn about American Indian culture through familiar experiences (which was also discussed in the article). The article also mentions letting students come to their own conclusions about the American-Indian genocide which I think is very interesting and important. Looking back at what I have learned about becoming a teacher is assisting students to make the desired conclusions but utimately letting them come to the conclusion on their own.
For example, if you don’t like someone you may call them your arch-villain. You may also not realize you are using one of the words Shakespeare made up. He used this word in his play called “Timon of Athens.” Another word he created actually surprised me and I found interesting is, swagger. The definition of swagger is to carry oneself in a confident and arrogant way.
Renowned playwright William Shakespeare is often praised for his manipulation of the English language into beautiful poems and plays. However, when Shakespeare wrote these famous plays in 16th century England, he was often censored and his works were released as other poets’ adaptations. While the censored versions usually followed the original plot, they typically failed to deliver the same experience to the audience due to their diminished language. William Davenant’s adaptation of Macbeth is one of the many rewritten Shakespeare plays that pale in comparison to their originals. Unfortunately, Davenant’s version is one with less vivid and sub-par imagery as well as simplified and misguided dialogue.
I found the My Story assignment to be a fascinating one. I thought it was really interesting to get a closer look at how my fellow classmates defined themselves and what led them to their definition. The assignment allowed me to uncover another side of the people in the class that I didn’t know too well, but also it allowed me to see another perspective on my friends. The assignment is proof that even though people claim to know one another, they only know the information that they’re given, and that the information is usually only a fragment of the entire story. This idea of seeing an entire person’s story is what made the assignment so enjoyable, and even though I had a hard time coming up with my own narrative, it was still interesting to
Whether the promises will make America great again only the future knows for sure. Right now lots of people are regretting trusting Trump and voting for him. Trusting the wrong person can make people feel regret or even guilty for what happened. Trump is still in office right now so there is still time for him to do good. He could still however lead America to its downfall like Hitler lead Germany to its
He was rather pessimistic about human nature, thus he did not seem to believe that a perfect government and a perfect society were possible. Therefore it doesn’t make sense to search a model of government and society in Gulliver’s Travels. But Gulliver’s third travel contains a warning which shows that Swift was more than an exceptional observer: a man of vision. According to George Orwell, “Swift’s greatest contribution to political thought in the narrower sense of the words, is his attack, especially in Part III, on what would now be called totalitarianism.
9. Ender is promoted to commander of the Dragon Army, an army with a superstitious record of losing ⅓ of all its battles.

Imperialism can not be seen as a horrible thing all the time. These countries often do get protection from us, if ever threaten. My intent for American imperialism is for America to be put on the map. Some of my tactics will help America to do just that. Let us keep positive as American’s that our nationalism being spread for bigger and better things in these countries.
McCullough’s intent was not focused strictly on the Americans, as he also sets you in the lives of the British Generals. Another aspect I enjoyed is how he didn’t give George Washington the image of being perfect that we normally think of him as. He was very indecisive, and had to be talked away from his decisions several times. He lets us know the other side of Washington, yes, he’s a great war General but he is not a great tactician or strategist.
She talks about what she wants to get done but like Donald Trump states many times, Senator Hilary has been a Senator for thirty years, why try to change things now. To me Hilary is a puppet and it doesn’t seem like she is ready to be president and neither does Donald
