This essay will prove that graduating students in Ontario should only study Canadian literature in a Grade 12 English course. While good writers exist in all cultures, Ontario students should only study Canadian writers. Because we need to become more familiar with our literature. Three reasons for this are; the need to focus on our own Canadian culture despite being surrounded by other cultures, the need to promote and establish our own writers, and the need to encourage younger Canadian authors. Students in Ontario taking English should only study Canadian literature because we are completely swamped by the American culture around us.
Majority of the individuals in Canada are immigrants, or come from immigrant origins. If it were not for the millions of individuals who have left their country to come to Canada in the hopes for a better life, Canada would never have prospered into what it is today. As a result of this fact, many immigrants are still faced with several hardships when they enter Canada. Immigrants coming to Canada believe that they will be able to keep their culture, identity and become successful in their lives. Such misleading hopes set immigrants up for a life of racism, discrimination, assimilation, prejudice and continuous disappointment.
Canadian individual identity is questioned often because it is so diverse and means something different to each person in Canada. Although there is not a set identity there are many values and beliefs that are owned by all Canadians. To find out what Canadians identity is, one has to take into account what has affected it. The United States is the biggest influence on Canadian identity. The U.S. culture is very similar to Canadians as we are exposed to it all the time in media sources.
Prior to my travels, I lived in a small town that spoke only one language, Tagalog. Naturally, I learned how to speak the language by listening to my family talk and the language came naturally to me. Due to the prevalence of the language, I learned how to speak and write Tagalog and no other language. After all, learning another language was most likely useless in a homogenous community of Tagalog speakers. This mindset prevailed until after my fifth birthday when I found out that my family was moving to a Middle Eastern country called the
In addition, many of the children that attended residential schools and survived suffered from mental and physical health problems that persist today as generations of indigenous children were forced into the Indian Residential School System (Anisman, Bombay & Matheson, 2014, p. 323). Thus, the indigenous nations in Canada’s political community remain in a state of trauma while fighting
There are several similarities and differences between America and Canada and in this paper I 'm going to discuss those things. Some of the similarities are both the US and Canada are Democrats and federal states. Another similarity is both have the same life expectancy 82 years of life. Some of the many differences are people Live in America for the most part speak one language, English. But, Canadians speak mainly to languages, French and English.
I came to Canada a year ago. As a new emigrant I faced many challenges, that has changed my life. When I arrived with my family in Canada, my parents had a small deposit that just supported us, as a family, for a few months. After that, my parents could not find job due to lack of English proficiency. Canada’s government help us with a small amount of money that helped us to live.
There is a lot of technical and clinical information that the one will need as a nurse: critical thinking and communication skills, patient assessment skills, understanding disease management protocols and development of care plans (just to name a few), most of which is only obtainable through college or technical school and on the job experience. Respect for the patient, the patient’s support system, as well as, respect for yourself is another essential trait necessary to be a successful registered nurse. If patients are sick or worrying about what might be wrong with them, they are going to understandably be anxious or upset (and probably both). Part of practicing compassion as a nurse is recognizing situations like this – and so many more – and striving to help patients maintain their dignity through it all. This requires honest and straightforward communication.
However, this can also work against the authoritative position that doctors hold. If someone with a PhD preforms malpractice the audience is easily angered because a medical doctor is someone who all should be able to trust. While the nursing students where observing the medical staff during clinicals a student reported of “a doctor performed frequent and unnecessary vaginal examinations to improve his practice skills” (pg. 593). By using credibility the author was able to support the purpose of their article to inform the audience of malpractice and ethical conflicts in the medical
When discussing with my group during the book club I realized that there are still some people who have narrow views of these people. This individual's argument was that we (the Indigenous people) are a minority and that the past is in the past, so there is no need to put such a large emphasis on them as there are many other cultures in Canada
