Declaratory Act The British colonies and America were bristling under the rule of Britain. They thought the rules and regulations of their government were unfair and left little behind to develop the respective countries. Britain implemented many Acts, including the Declaratory Act, during this time in the 1700s. The colonists eventually boycott them due to their severity. As such, many fought against such Acts, as they did the Stamp Act, which was eventually overturned.
The third stage is the beginning of the eighteenth century when the British tried to oust the Dutch, the French and the Portuguese from the sub-continent. They started English as a medium of education which influenced Urdu even with more force. After 1857, particularly the transference of the English words into Urdu was faster. After the War of Independence 1857, the British occupied India and became enemy of the Muslims of the sub-continent. The British considered The Muslims responsible for the rebellion against them but virtually all it was because of the Hindu’s conspiracies.
This is where I have an issue with the modernization of The Comedy of errors. Like I alluded to in the introductory paragraph, it left the audience with many unanswered questions, such as how Egeon managed to buy a pair of twin boys. He alluded to buying them off a poor woman, however in these modern times, it’s not that simple. While slavery does still exist, you certainly wouldn’t cavalierly mention your slave purchases in front of people of authority. What would fix the plot hole, is if the play was set in the 1812 - 1814 when the war between Canada and the United States was being waged.
Introduction On October 1st 1960 , British rule over Nigeria as a colony ended, as well as most of its official structure. Nigerian leaders were left with the task of taking up the leadership of the Nigerian people from the British with a promise of democratic rule; however within fifteen years after independence various institutions experienced great changes bringing great instability and uncertainty to the newly founded government. Northern and Southern regions of Nigeria both felt the impacts in education, politics, religion and ethnically. This causes one to wonder what the British Imperialistic government did differently, and why the difference between the Southern and Northern region became so evident in the fifteen years after independence.
The Progressive Era was a movement from the late 19th century to the early 20th century where many people in the United States tried to reform political, social, and economic injustices. This might sound like a good thing, but most of the movement was filled with corruption and ulterior motives. The Progressive movement was not entirely clean; while there were selfless reformers, many reformers only wanted reform if it suited them. Using the historical interpretations of George Mowry, Joseph Huthmacher, and James J. Connolly, I will explain who the progressives were and what their reformed society entailed. I will also state what historian is most persuasive and why.
Have you ever thought that history can be used in both good and bad ways? History has impacted perspective and how people act on things for countless generations. History is used and abused which can be seen through the reflection on historical background in Lord of the Flies, through philosophical belief affecting how people treat history, as well as through how historical events cause new perspectives to form. Lord of the Flies is able to portray that history can influence people directly in both positive and negative ways. “We’re English, and the English are best at everything.” Golding expresses that there is often an underlying feeling of superiority within society that is used by history.
Book Review John Dewey Democracy and Education Democracy and Education was published by John Dewey in 1916. The original title of the book was to be Introduction to the Philosophy of Education but was changed due to the political pressure of the World War. The original title was however retained as the subtitle of the book. The book was written to shed light on the fundamental educational, socio political consequences of the world war, civil war, industrialization, migration etc. Born in 1859 in a largely agrarian American society, Dewey saw the massive changes that American society.
Most of which were bloody, but still, even after seeing the brutality, some were not behind the revolution so, Thomas Paine took a more dovish approach, Common Sense. However, before Common Sense was published and read across all of the colonies, many more events occurred that lead to the revolution, all at the hands of the tyrant, King George III. On March 22, 1765, the Stamp Acts is signed and the colonists were required to purchase specially stamped paper for every legal document, license, newspaper, pamphlet, and imposed special stamp duties on packages of playing cards and dice (Bowman). In other words, it was a direct tax on all paper goods. If colonists disobeyed the law, they were to be
Bhagat’s novels bring out the important role played by English language in establishing one’s position and status in present time. Even though we have seen many heated debates across the country over English versus vernacular language education, it needs to be accepted that the language of the Britishers does not belong to them anymore and is rather, a ‘lingua franca’ and the most viable medium of communication in the global context. Quoting the situation in contemporary India, Bhagat in an interview says, “It isn’t just the English versus Hindi class divide anymore….The new class divide is varying degrees of English….A lot more people are in the English fold, but with varying levels of proficiency. The elites laugh and sneer at their country cousins who are trying to learn English in India, and that is what Half Girlfriend is about.” (The National) The novel, Half Girlfriend projects the trials and tribulations of Bhagat’s hero, Madhav Jha from a rural place in Bihar, and his difficulties to make a place for himself in the upper class Delhi circle. His distress stems mainly from his inability to express himself in English.
The origins of Communicative Language Teaching (CLT) are to be found in the changes in the British language teaching tradition dating from the late 1960s. Until then, Situational Language represented the major British approach to teaching English as a foreign language. In Situational Language Teaching, language was taught by practicing basic structures in meaningful situation-based activities. The communicative approach could be said to be the product of educators and linguists who had grown dissatisfied with the audio-lingual and grammar-translation methods of foreign language instruction. They felt that students were not learning enough realistic, whole language.
