I had the opportunity to view two of his class periods, an accelerated class and an ESOL class. Both of Mr. R’s classes, along with the school in its entirety, consisted of mostly Hispanics and ESOL students. Out of approximately 1,030 students, the demographics for Cross Keys High are as follows: 67% Hispanics, 16% African-American,13% Asian, 3% Caucasian, 1% Other. US News reports that Cross Keys High School is the “most culturally diverse high school in the state of Georgia with students from 65 countries who speak 75 different languages.” Out of Mr. R’s accelerated class of 23 students
SES is a Department of Defense Dependent School (DoDDS) located on Smith Barracks Army Post in Baumholder, Germany. It is one of one hundred sixty-six schools run by the Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA). The school serves military dependent children in grades Pre-K through fifth grade. The school has a current population of 456 students, however this is a highly transient community with student population fluctuating on a weekly basis. There are currently fifty-five fifth grade students (twenty-seven girls and twenty-eight boys) at SES split between two classroom teachers.
The story of the Little Rock Nine takes place in the Spring of 1957, and there were 517 African American students who lived in the Central High School District located in Little Rock, Arkansas. Although, eighty students took an interest in accompanying Central during the fall semester. These African American students had the opportunity to be interviewed by the Little Rock School Board. Out of the results of the interview, seventeen of the eighty African American students were eligible to attend Central High School. As the Central High School fall semester began, only nine of the seventeen students decided to attend Central High School.
Out of those 511 students 252 students are male and 259 are female. Also, 95% of the students are African American, 4% are multi- racial, 1% is American Indian, and there are 2 students that are Caucasian and 1 student that is Hispanic. 68 % of the students receive free and reduced lunches and 32% of the students receive regular lunches.
Class Size Survey There all colleges all over the world and students attend these colleges with high goals and important aspirations. These colleges have class sizes ranging from around four students in one small class to around three hundred students in a lecture class. Most high schools’ largest classrooms tend to have no more than thirty-five students per class. This is interesting because high schools have smaller classrooms, but yet some colleges have large classrooms.
Admittedly, Hispanics are neither the only nor the first minority facing educational difficulties: achievement differences among ethnic groups have existed before and Latinos are definitely not the only group that has been afflicted by race inequality in education. (!) However, right now Latinos are the lowest performing population group regarding educational achievement in the United States (Gándara, Contreras 18). While 90 percent of whites, 85 percent of African-Americans, and 89 percent of Asian-Americans between the age of 25 and 64 have finished high school, only about 64 percent of Latino 25- to 64-year-olds have earned a high school diploma (Maxwell 2). Their postsecondary attainment not only lags behind the attainment of white but also of black and Asian students (Adams 1).
According to college professors roughly 42% of college students are not adequately prepared by their high schools to meet the rigor of college coursework (Center for College Readiness, 2015). SLIDE 4 - WARRANTS There is no doubt that a majority of high school graduates aspire to earn a college degree. However according to (Policy Report, 2013), only 68% of them enroll immediately in a four or two-year post-secondary institution after completing high school.
After the Little Rock Nine event segregation between schools had stopped. After the Little Rock Nine event Little Rock high school closed in 1958 instead of letting black students attend the school but then opened in 1959 to students of all race, district schools did the same. After the schools reopened 123 out of 7000 students were African Americans. Now in 2017 schools have 14% white students, 14% hispanic students and 68% black students. Before in the 1900s it was 27% white students and 1.7% black students.
Here are some interesting facts when it comes ethnicity and adoption. 56% of the nation 's children are non-hispanic white, and out of all adopted children only 37% are non-hispanic white (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services). That is compared to 14% non-hispanic black children compared to 23% of all adopted children are non-hispanic black. Non-hispanic asians are 4% of all children, non-hispanic make up 15% of all adopted children. 20% of all children are Hispanic, but adopted children that are hispanic are only 15.
In the early 1980s, the American people elected Ronald Reagan as President of the United States of America. Many people claim that Reagan was one of the greatest presidents of all time, while others believe that the country would have been much better off had Reagan never been elected. Regardless of their political preferences, it is undeniable that Ronald Reagan changed the world in the 1980s and his work as president will be forever remembered in the countless books of history. Ronald Reagan ran as a Republican and was the absolute type of a conservative.
The Ronald Reagan Era was an extremely powerful and important time in political history. It changed the way the entire Republican party thought. The conservatism article states that this era was so powerful that “political rivals were forced to respond to how influential and powerful” Ronald Reagan was. Through his influence with International affairs, his powerful speaking through the media, and his ability to work with his chairmen to create more innovative ways to have a better government, Ronald Reagan created a new Republican Party.
Reagan became president on January 20th, 1981. Reagan’s first mission was marked by massive build ups of U.S. weapons. After 2 months of being President, Reagan was almost assassinated by John Hinckley Jr. who almost shot him six times. Reagan made numerous speeches about the meaning of the government and what it is supposed to be. Reagan also talked about the Berlin Wall and Cold
Determined, hard working, and committed leader are three words that people think of in connection to Ronald Reagan. Many people know that Ronald Reagan was the president of the United States, but he was so much more. As the president during the Cold War, he showed America that through hard work, determination, and the commitment that ended the Cold War, people can accomplish great things. He left a legacy as a successful president. Ronald Reagan wasn't always into politics.
Madison Brosky, Class Green Make it Stick: Book Analysis For the book analysis project, I chose to read the book ‘Make it Stick’: The Science of Successful Learning’ written by Peter C. Brown, Henry L. Roediger III, and Mark A. McDaniel. The book begins by explaining that most people choose to learn the hard way by putting tons of time and effort into something that is later a complete waste. The point isn’t that we are taught poorly, but that we are taught in the wrong way because each individual learns differently.
