The Beanie Babies Program is a reading program designed for Cycle 1 elementary classrooms, to work in tandem with classroom reading practice routines, such as a silent reading or team reading routine. It utilizes stuffed animals in order to teach a wide variety of decoding and comprehension strategies to help young students learn to read. The program is comprised of a series of Beanie Babies, each assigned a particular reading strategy. For example, the Stretchy Snake beanie baby is assigned the stretching strategy in which the reader stretches out each syllable of a word, sounding it out, in order to help read the word as a whole; The Questioning Owl would encourage students to ask questions about what their reading in order to further comprehension, and so forth. Various posters can be placed around the classroom explaining the strategies connect with each animal. The students are then assigned an animal to help remind them of the connected strategy as they practice their reading.

Since the advent of the personal computer, the amount of information and interconnectedness between people has dramatically increased. With one click of a button someone could go from checking the scores of their favorite football team to conversing with a friend anywhere in the world. In “Is Google Making Us Stupid” by Nicholas Carr, he explores the consequences of the massive amounts of information one can obtain via the internet. While I agree with Carr on the effects the internet has on how people read, there is a limit to the amount of people the internet actually affects.

Kieu Tran’s comprehensive diction produces a clear distinction between American and Asian culture with examples of “physical punishment in Asian traditions is not considered child abuse” and “in America, there is no way that Asian parents can physically punish their children, if their children perform badly.” Kieu Tran touches on the ideas that America relies heavily on the thought of equality between any person, whether it is a minor or an adult, and the effects it has on Asian immigrant families, especially from Vietnam. In America, beating a child for whatever reason is automatically classified as child abuse, and it can lead to days in jail, like what happened to Mr. Ma and his daughter. Mr. Ma struck his daughter twice, which led to him

The features of Scouse possess high levels of diversity when compared to Received Pronunciation (RP), with the RP accent assuming the position of the quintessential accent of the United Kingdom. Hughes and Trudgill (1996:14) comment, ‘RP is spoken by those at the top of the social scale…the lower a person is on the social scale the more obvious their regional accent will tend to be.’ Thus, the regional accent of Scouse, in contrast to the prestige of RP, is supposedly representative of a person of low socio-economic status. From such statement, it can be hypothesised that attitudes towards the Scouse accent will be directed towards low-skill, working class occupations.
