A. According to Ladson-Billings (2004), the Critical Race Theory (CRT) “argues against the slow pace of racial reform in the United States begins with the notion that racism is normal in American society” (p.7). This theory argues that Whites have been the primary beneficiaries of civil rights legislation and this has resulted in school inequity (has affected the daily experiences of students of color). Adopting CRT as a framework for educational equity will result in talking about, exposing, and proposing solutions for the reoccurring problems of race, racism, and social injustice in schools and classrooms. The many History courses I have through my academic career have embedded the idea that ALL students, no matter their language, color,
Zitkala-Sa: An analysis In the early 1900s, Native Americans went through a period of assimilation; That is, they were forced into adapting to American culture and customs. There were many methods to achieve this assimilation, including putting Native American children in US schools to teach them American ideals and values and to really Americanize them.

Wanguba Mr. Hinton Freshman Seminar 18 February 2015 Intellectual Curiosity: “Why Curiosity Doesn’t Kill the Cat” ‘Curiosity killed the cat’, a well-known proverb that originated in 16th century with William Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing. I believe that proverb was made as a warning. A warning to people who are excessively curious; It may to some extent lead someone into a dangerous situation like the character in the short story below Curiosity Once Killed a Cat by Donald M. Jenkins: One night I had nothing to do. Wandering to the medicine cabinet I saw a bottle one inch high. Wondering what could be in such a small bottle I uncorked it and put it to my nose.

The two short stories I have chosen are Machado De De Assis’ ‘Midnight Mass’ and Rosario Ferré’s ‘When Women Love Men’. Through reading and analysing both of these I can compare and contrast the two very different themes of love throughout them. The young man, seventeen years old, and the married woman, Conceição, thirty years old, meet in a dimly lit room, the parlour of the house. It is just lit by a kerosene lamp. The rest of the household is asleep as the meeting takes place between ten and midnight on Christmas Eve.

The issue of education for the Native Americans living in the West was such an important issue back in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century that many white reformers pushed for a compulsory education for them. The schools where the Native Americans were forced into taught them everything they needed to know to become Americans culturally. Things such as rights, freedoms and the institutions that made America the country it was, were taught in class, but these schools also had another goal in mind, total erasure of their culture and complete assimilation of the tribes into American culture. This essay will tackle the motives of such reformers to push for the assimilation of the Native Americans by using their direct texts written
