“No. It’s not Huckleberry Finn anymore,” Bradley an author and professor at Oregon University said. “There is a reality there that you cannot avoid.” Just as Bradley said, it’s not easy to face this word, but Twain wanted the readers to struggle with this term so that they can see the extreme prejudice that has been going on between the whites and the blacks. Without it the whole struggle that was presented behind this word will be gone if replaced. “Yeah.
Also, the level of rigor in the curriculum for white-Americans are denied or “lowered” for ELLs and African-Americans. Instruction- Educators try to find the “right” strategy or technique to deal with certain students which suggest that minority students are deficient. In other words, they believe that the current instruction is not fit for students who are “different”. Assessment- Assessments focus on what students don’t know instead of what they do know which then “legitimizes” the deficiency of minority students. School Funding- “CRT argues that inequality in school funding is a function of institutional and structural racism” (Ladson-Billings, 2004, p.20).
Additionally, the author of the article Keep Confederate monuments, but put their horrific history on stage describes how Americans have been “willfully blind” about racial justice and that the statues could be used as reminders of the “catastrophic consequences” (Cose). The real reason why amends haven’t been made between the races, especially blacks and whites, may be due to the unjust treatment that blacks experience. In order for both sides to reconcile, the nation needs to openly admit the wrongs of participating in slavery and allow the past to stay in the past. The past shouldn’t be forgotten, but it should also be a way for individuals to learn and make
Additional versions of the speech appeared in newspapers of the era, feeding modern-day confusion about the authoritative text. It´s strength and it´s feelings have make it into the speech of the U.S.A reestablish. In 1863 The United Stated were divided into a bloody Civil War between the North States (The Union) and The States of the South (The confederation). The issue was the abolition or not of the Slavery. The president was in favor of the abolition of the slavery.
While some may say that their messages are different, they are actually quite similar because they are both expose biased education and religion, disrespect of slaves, and the greed of society. It can be argued that these messages differ greatly, they are very alike since they reveal corrupt education and religion. Through his excerpts Douglass tells of when he was first trying to learn how to read and write. When his master at the time, Mr. Auld, discovered of the mistress teaching Frederick how to read he said, “Now if you teach that n****r how to read there would be no keeping him. It would forever unfit him to be a slave” (Douglass 14).
History Needs to Be Preserved in Order to Show How Far We Have Come In the article “Expelling ‘Huck Finn’” Nat Hentoff argues weather the book The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain should be taught to children in school or taken off the lesson plans. There has been a lot of debate weather the book is racist or if it’s just the time that it was written in. Though many people in modern time 2018, think the book is racist and should not be taught to students; that is not completely true. Sure it would be hard to tell if the book is racist or not if you do not completely understand the history of the time the book is set in. The book The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is not racist, but more so just how people talked in 1885.
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. Just because history is harsh and not always the most pleasant thing to learn about, does not mean that we can ignore it. Kenya Down with PBS said, “Being uncomfortable with history is not means to change it; people need to figure out how to confront issues.” Down also mentioned how Lee’s book is one of the most banned books
Telling children just that he was a civil rights leader who was assassinated is not doing anything for the child’s knowledge. Instead a teacher should go more in depth of what he was fighting for, his background, and how exactly he made his mark on the world. Another reason schools should inform children better is because, as I said before, bullying. Millions of students are bullied, whether it be how they look, how they talk, or their ethnicities. Schools should have a more hand on approach with bullying so that children can understand that what they are doing is wrong.
Restricted deviance is practical, he argued that it challenges individuals' perspectives (1893). Case in point, when black students over the United States took part in "sit-ins" amid the civil rights movement, they tested society's ideas of segregation. Additionally, Durkheim noted, when deviance is punished, it reaffirms current social standards, which likewise adds to society (1893). Seeing a student being gave detention for skipping class reminds other high schoolers that playing hooky isn't permitted and that they, as well, could get
In other words we also could say that because of fight inside of byzantine empire they wasn't able to survive from other attacks.In response to this argument I would like to argue back still it is worth because there isn't any history source we can’t learn. Which means that we could at least learn that we shouldn't fight inside because normally country falls because of split from inside. In conclusion, Byzantine empire should be studied by Schools because it is worth to study. And in 21 st century we should investigate and study more about the reason why Byzantines empire has fallen . As a result schools should study Byzantine empire to improve students
