Rms Titanic - 1,016 words
The R.M.S. Titanic was called the ship of dreams, and some called her the unsinkable ship. It was the largest steam engine ever built in the world. She was the most beautiful and biggest ship ever to set sail to the sea. In the summer of 1907, Lord Pierrie, Harland & Wolf, J. Bruse Ismay, and White Star Line planned to build three giant ships (Olympic, Titanic, and Britannic). They were to be designed as the most luxurious ships in the world, and to be built with the finest woods and furnishings. They would cater to the rich and affluent that traveled the North Atlantic. The three ships would give customers luxury and they would travel at greater speeds than ever before. In March 1909, the k ...

... She made immediate plans to return to America after receiving the bad news. She booked passage on the first ship to America, which happened to be the Titanic (http://www.mollybrown.com/). She boarded in Cherbourg, France and considered herself lucky and was put in a stateroom on B deck for $130.

On the night of the collision, Brown had stayed up to finish reading a book as she was an avid reader.

This book describes how various baby animals come into the world and what happens when a human baby is born. This is the first book for the illustrator using dry pastels on dark gray paper. The size of the book helps to create great detail in the pictures of the animals and their babies. The illustrator makes the animals life-like. The author chooses a variety of animals that a child may or may not be previously exposed to. I appreciate that in this book. My family and I enjoyed learning about the ways some animals were born. We particularly enjoyed learning that the father sea h ...

Queen Victoria - 783 words
Queen Victoria was one of the greatest women ever to sit on the throne of England. Her long reign lasted from 1837 to 1901. Her efforts during these years changed England very much. Ironically, Queen Victoria was never meant to reign England. Her seat on the throne came about in an unusual way. After the death of Queen Victoria's uncle, King George IV, the throne was meant to be passed on to one of George III's grandchildren. However, no one in the royal family had given birth to any legitimate children except for the Duke of Kent, Victoria's father. So at the age of 18, Victoria, daughter of Duke Edward of Kent, became Queen Victoria of England. This was due to a distant relation to the Que ...

... models of bilingual education is that content knowledge and skills learned in a student's primary language will transfer to English once the student has experienced between five and seven years of native language instruction (The Changing Face of Bilingual Education). Research performed by the National Academy of Sciences gives absolutely no concrete, empirical research that would support this proposition. The National Academy of Sciences, however, supports the use of native language instruction. The National Academy of Sciences is aware of the contradictory nature of their support and acknowledges: It is clear that many children first learn to read in a second language without any serio ...

Violence Against Women In The Uk - 1,490 words

Domestic Violence is now a well-known global occurrence affecting not only women but also their children too. Violence against woman has been around since the dawn of time. We have all seen cartoon pictures of the caveman dragging his mate behind him by her hair. It was just something that men did. Woman had no protection against men especially if they were married to their attacker. For the first 75 years of the 20th century women were seen as meek and subservient to their men and were also owned by t ...

Ebonics, or Black English, was recently a controversial topic in the United States, when the Oakland School District school board attempted to classify ebonics as a completely different language from Standard American English (SAE). There was further controversy when the school board stated that ebonics was genetic. This report will explain Ebonics and its origin, as well as the Oakland school board case. There are over 20 million blacks in the United States today. It is hard to tell exactly how many people speak Black English because it is not the language that all blacks in America speak, and also there are other races that speak Black English to some extent in certain areas of the country ...

In order for a person to appreciate their family, friends and all the other people around them, one must understand what culture is all about. Culture is a body in a way of how we behave. In my opinion culture is the way same people live in a different societies. People, who have different meanings, promise rules and norms. The most important thing which culture gives us is an identity or an understanding of which we really are. Things like race is only a physical appearance of a person, nationality is a citizenship which one has. But if we look inside of each in ...

The Catcher In The Rye - The Etymology And Symbolism Of Characters' Names - 1,889 words
Catcher in the Ryes pallid cover, adorned only with seven multicolored bands in its upper-left corner, is not what one would call eye-catching. Its reverse side lacks criticisms or reviews of any sort; in fact, it is bare of anything except a copyright date. Human beings are advised not to judge books by their covers, rather that they should look further than the obvious and try to apprehend the implied meaning. The world has peered past Catcher in the Ryes cover, cracked its pure, uniform shell of cardboard and discovered the novel of a decade, a story that has now made the name Holden Caulfield synonymous with cynical adolescent. Within the novel, however, there are more books into which w ...

Aldous Huxleys Dystopian Vision - 722 words
What is a utopia? Merriam-Websters Collegiate Dictionary defines utopia as an imaginary and indefinitely remote place; a place of ideal perfection especially in laws, gov-ernment, and social conditions; *an impractical scheme for social improvement.* In Brave New World Aldous Huxley creates a dystopia (which Webster defines as an imaginary place where people lead dehumanized and often fearful lives) by predicting a pos-sible utopia after many generations. Aldous Huxley analyzes how the utopia degenerated from its original intent into a terrible dystopia. In this essay I will discuss some aspects of this dystopia and relate to Aldous Huxleys dystopian vision. Aldous Huxley begins Bra ...

Marriage In Russia - 1,717 words
It is common sense that as time progresses, changes occur, whether they are intentional, planned changes or not. When large, full-scale societal changes occur, however, there is often even greater fluctuation among the other aspects of society. Marriage has long been held as an institution that upholds the ideals of a nation, culture, or tribe. The ideas that are validated by this institution often manifest themselves in other parts of the society. Because marriage is such an integral part of social ideology, it is no wonder that it would be affected by vast changes in other institutions in a society. The changes that have occurred in Russia since the downfall of the Soviet Union are a prime ...

Implications For Read-alouds With Preschool Children - 1,926 words
The single most important activity for building the knowledge and skills eventually required for reading appears to be reading aloud to children (Adams, 1990; Goodman, 1984). However, a familiar complaint of primary teachers is that children often arrive in kindergarten or first grade showing little experience with books. In an age of video games, television, and computers, connecting children with the pleasure of books and reading is a major concern. Many children do not seem to look forward to reading and they do not seem to know how books work, nor the pleasure they can bring. Why is there an alarming increase in these types of behaviors? Some say it is the increase of families living in ...

Childrens Literature And The Holocaust - 1,020 words
During the 1940s Jewish Europeans experienced an unthinkable and atrocious collective trauma. In her work Survivor-Parents and Their Children taken from the anthology Generations of the Holocaust, Judith S. Kestenberg has argued that regardless of location, the effects of the Holocaust are felt on survivors parenting. The children of survivors receive a secondary traumatic impact by being forced to deal with the impact the Holocaust had directly on their parents. The novel Briar Rose by Jane Yolen is an example of a Holocaust survivor sharing her experiences through a fictionalized tale made for young adults. Some may believe that a traditional, educationally focused history source or a firs ...
