Comparison Of The Medievil And Renaissance Eras - 1,098 words
Comparison of the Medievil and Renaissance Eras It is amazing how significantly various aspects of society can and will change over a prolonged period of time. Between the time periods of the Medieval era and the Renaissance, one can note numerous significant changes, mainly those pertaining to art and religion. In general, ideals and subjects during the Renaissance became more secular. In Medieval times, people seemed to focus mainly on the church, God, and the afterlife; whereas during the Renaissance, the focus was more secular: humans and life on earth.

Leonardo Renaissance Man - 1,935 words
The great turning point of Western civilization called the Renaissance, the rebirth of literature, art, architecture, and philosophy in Europe, marked the emergence of the modern world from the dark ages (Aston 11).

Multicultural Education Means Mediocre Education - 1,169 words
Let me begin this essay by stating that I am a retired English teacher of 34 years experience and believe that I have treated all of my students fairly and equitably. Three times I had been named into Whos Who Among American Teachers and two of those nominations have been by minority students, one black and one Hispanic. Those students realized that my classroom standards were just as tough on them as they were on the majority Caucasian students and that I gave them no favoritism, slack or handicap for their minority-status ethnicity. I had always refused to dumb down my curriculum (Grammar, Vocabulary, Literature, Writing Skills) to accommodate students that lacked motivation, desire, curio ...

Fortress Masada And Edward Lear - 1,488 words
Throughout history, many artists have come about with great paintings. You name it, Leonardo DaVinci with Mona Lisa, Pablo Picasso with Three Musicians, and Claude Monet with Water Lilies. Although all of these paintings were very good, none of them to me come close to my personal favorite, Masada on the Dead Sea, by Edward Lear. This painting is my all time favorite because of how artist Edward Lear showed how the fortress Masada, was the most difficult fortress ever to break into period. But before I get into the painting, Masada on the Dead Sea, itself, I will talk a little about the author, Edward Lears life. Edward Lear was born on May 12, 1812 in the small town of Highgate, which is a ...

An Artists Review - 1,028 words
As I walked up to the future interior designer of the Ahmad family, I wondered the extent to which Nusrat Ahmad had taken her designing career. I saw Nusrat sitting on the lush green sofa in the corner of her family room, thinking that one day she would be strategically placing sofas in other people's houses. Belonging to a Pakistani family, I wanted to question the extent of approval she received from her family and relatives and inquire about other South Asians artists in today's community. Just like any other Pakistani family, Nusrat's parents always wanted their daughter to be a doctor. As she struggled through high school with her science classes in order to please her parents, she star ...
