The other main point of this chapter is about being motivated to do your school work and go to school. The way you should motivate your self is by thinking head of your life and where you want to go to college and what you want to achieve in life, either that be a job or achieving a medal or trophy. These were just a few points in chapter four. I really enjoyed reading this chapter. This chapter was so intriguing because of the information it gave to us.
Other people like you maybe would see it as murder like I said in the other evidence, but in this situation I would say it's not murder its euthanasia. After reading this letter do you think this book is appropriate for students (middle school and up)? I think the book is a good way to learn a friendship lesson, and just a life lesson take it from me, I've read it and I like it and I'm pretty sure your kids will like it as
To some people it is not. Some teachers say that the book is challenging for students. Now, this novel may be difficult for students, but that is how students learn new information. If students weren’t to have read harder pieces of literature all throughout their schooling career, they would stay at the same level of reading for most of their life. The reason why students should read more challenging novels are because they learn new things, and they could also learn how to act in a certain situation based on the type of challenging story they read.
Throughout the book a lot of harsh language was used, along with ideas that may be considered inappropriate. This book should be taught to High School students across the country, and it should not be a banned book. To Kill a Mockingbird teaches students morals, and ethics. The book is still partially accurate to what some people go through even in today’s world, and what the books reads is still a part of history that should not be covered up and tucked away. To Kill a Mockingbird should still be taught in school systems, and should not be a banned book because the novel focuses on a part of history that should not be ignored.
Overall, Cinderella Man depicted many of the different aspects of the depression, and can provide a good explanation of what it was like for many families during that time. The movie showcased many aspects of the Great Depression talked about in class. Loss of jobs and struggling to support the family was one of them. James Braddock struggled to win fights in order to keep food on the table. Although, after breaking his hand during a match, he was let go from boxing, and ended up having to swallow his pride and file a relief to support his family.
The lessons that the reader learns through this novel are still applicable today. For example, people today are judged based on their looks and how they dress, not on who they really are. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn should be read and studied in schools because the truths found in the book are still relevant to us and can be applied to our daily
Of Mice and Men is a novella by John Steinbeck, published in 1937. It is set in the Salinas Valley in California during the Great Depression of the 1930s. Two migrant workers, George Milton and Lennie Small, have a work contract at a local ranch so that they one day might purchase a property of their own; however, due to Lennie’s childlike mental state the goal seems far-fetched. In his poem, ‘To a Mouse’, which is also the source of the novella’s title, Robert Burns wrote, “The best laid schemes of mice and men / Go often askew,” which one can compare to George’s goals of achieving the elusive American Dream together with Lennie, but as the poem also suggests this will go askew, and this is Lennie’s fault. Therefore, why does George not get rid of Lennie, when Lennie even offers to “(…) go off in the hills an’ find a cave.” (OMM, 14), and pursue the dream himself?
John Steinbeck, an author Alameda Unified School District has approved of for years, shares strong ideas with English students at Alameda High. In John Steinbeck’s passages such as Of Mice and Men and The Pearl, set in the early 1900’s, he reaches out to the people among society who live without a voice and sends moral lessons to his readers. Of Mice and Men describes a setting during the Great Depression where two friends, Lennie and George, attempt to fulfill their American Dream by earning money from local work stations. Lennie, having mental disabilities struggles with controlling his emotions and being disliked by the boss’s son, Curley, creates problems for the two at their new job. Meanwhile, The Pearl voices the life of a family, a
However, the book has also been recognized for its blunt honesty and open speech. This novel should be taught in high schools today due to the way in which it can help eliminate loneliness and fear because of the discussions that a class can have based on this novel. Within The Catcher in
For the reason that it has been instilled in people’s minds how, like stated above, things that are involved in the world of popular culture shouldn’t be used in the academe, it is hard to get them to understand why pop culture is relevant in schools. However, what they do not understand is how popular culture gets the generation of today going. Communicating with these students and understanding whatever they are interested in will be hard if these teachers do not look at popular culture as something relevant. Popular culture in fact bridges the gap between the teachers and the students in the academe. According to Online Universities (2013), “Pop culture offers an opportunity for educators to meet students where they are.” In the world of the English Language for example.
