Liberation Theology Meets Humankind Embrace

genuine Australian or American culture exists merely because of their adoption of the english language (which they brought with them from a different continent) is a ridiculous argument. Cultural principles, values, theologies and other forms of cultural expression are transportable as well as flexible, and get altered, to some extent, in their new settings. Suggesting otherwise means making a false claim that distinct, 'pure' ideologies exist which have no interaction, whatsoever, among themselves (Boff 1979; Anderson 1979). Although ideologies interact, and hence, have an influence on each other, this doesn't render them inauthentic. Therefore, if the liberation approach to… Continue Reading...

rewrites the standards when it comes to the teaching of core subjects such as math, english, science and HASS. While changes that are necessary are a good thing and need to happen, there is also something to be said for changing things too much and/or too often. Having too many changes, good or bad, leads to what is known as "change fatigue" and this has been witness even when it comes to teachers that are otherwise very dedicated and enthusiastic.

However, Charbonneau spoke Hidatsa and French while Sacagawea spoke Shoshone and Hidatsa.

They also pointed out that even though slavery existed during Jesus era, he did not speak out against it.

The Secret Lion by Alberto Alvaro Rios Review

and figures of speech. The narrator plays with language and manipulates it tactfully. Merged english words are used to reinforce the minimalistic style of the story. Examples of the merged words include 'Gy God', 'Get rid of it', 'Gee guy this'. Some sentences are simplified and shortened. The structure is tailored to suit the simple approach to life by little boys. Indeed, some of the sentences constitute two or three words, e.g. 'so didn't.' Symbolism is used largely to express the message of the story. The lion is used to show the boys' innocence that was continuously terrified. The… Continue Reading...

Difference Between Shinto and Buddhism

worship are often referred to as shrines, although that translation is weak in the sense that in english, a shrine can convey a ritualistic altar to a dead person. Although Shinto does include ancestral worship as part of its core features, a Shinto shrine is simply a specific place that is deemed sacred space. To mark that space as sacred, several human constructions are placed, including the tori (gate), often painted orange. Often, there will be two pillars or statues topped with foxes, as symbolic guardians of the sacred space. The architecture in both Shinto and Buddhism serves as… Continue Reading...

better social order. Five centuries ago, Thomas More, then the english King Henry the Eighth's Lord Chancellor, had the opportunity to travel to Flanders as part of a contingent of diplomats to re-discuss the Britain-Flanders trade relationship. It was in the course of these protracted negotiations that he penned much of Utopia, a literary piece brimming with clever word plays and subtle censure. The rationale for the latter was a fear of punishment and of having his work condemned and unpublished if he included obvious differences of opinion in the novel. Therefore, although the author utilizes this book as… Continue Reading...

No, but we are bought and sold like apes or monkeys, to be the sport of women, fools and cowards: and the support of rogues and renegades that have abandoned their country for rapine, murders, thefts and villainies.

Thus, the creation of the residential schools was the aim of taking out those who needed education, most of which was done by force, as a way of fostering education and… Continue Reading...

Social Shift from Religion to Spirituality

decades old. Secularization has apparently come considerably late to America, as compared to other english-speaking, largely-Protestant societies. The "no-religion" surge of the nineties possibly and finally heralded American secularization. The word "secularization," by itself, has sparked considerable debate, with some asking for distinctions to be made, particularly between private and public religious expressions (Hout and Claude 167). This is perhaps a reversible shift. The U.S., Brazil, Spain, and Poland displayed substantial proof of a private-public religious move, with clear proofs of religion's retreat to the realm of the private. But religious skepticism was an unlikely justification: A majority of… Continue Reading...

Gothic Literature in 18th Century England

Relationship of "The Old english Baron" and "Vathek" to 18th Century english Gothic Fiction The rise of Gothic fiction in english literature coincided with the advent of the Romantic Era at the end of the 18th century and beginning of the 19th century. Gothic masterpieces such as Shelley's Frankenstein, Lewis's The Monk, and Stoker's Dracula would capture the imagination by fueling it with the flames of horror, suspense, other-worldliness and mystery.

This paper will compare the characterization of Adams, Primrose and Yorick and consider how realistically they represent Church of England clergymen from the time period of 1730 to 1780. By the 18th century, England had metamorphosed from an entirely Roman Catholic country, as it had been a quarter of a millennium earlier. In 1701 the Act of Settlement held that the english monarch must be a Protestant. And wars against the Catholic Spanish monarchy continued (Roberts 4).… Continue Reading...

Therefore, it takes into account a tradition of French literature, yet delineates Muslim culture. This takes into account the fact that Vathek includes djinns. The story simply appropriates the manner in which the Arabian culture perceived djinns and Beckford is not fully familiar with this element.

Lesson Plan for Gustav Klimt Art Class

He is an Asian-American, bilingual, and is able to write and read english very well, however, for some reason, he is not being able to perform effectively academically. I believe that meaningful assessment will assist the student to perform better academically. On the other hand, Student 3 is an emerging and struggling reader, and my goal is to equip the student to perform better in his assessment. Considering that only one student had the knowledge of logos, pathos, and ethos, thus, the student is not being represented in the samples. For example, 90% of the students have been able… Continue Reading...

Cause Of Us Revolution

The colonists were mainly of British descent, and so they had roughly the same culture as the ruling english, but over time there were enough differences and disagreements that ultimately would lead to the Revolutionary War. At the core of the disagreement was the economic status of the colonies and the people that lived in them. This was the primary long-run tension that led to the revolution. Great Britain was the world's most powerful nation at the time, and was in the process of building an expansive empire, all over the world. The empire was still rising at the… Continue Reading...

How Language and Literacy Are Impactful

result of an assignment given to us by our english teacher. The assignment was to write a personal narrative about something that we had experienced in our lives. Being only in middle school and not having ever really done anything remarkable in my life up to that point, I was completely stumped about what to write. I could think of nothing that would be interesting to anyone else: I went to school, went home, watched TV, played with my friends, and ate dinner with my family. (Had I been skilled in realism at that age, I might have made… Continue Reading...

Lesson Plan

diverse backgrounds and learning abilities. For instance, one classroom may have students with different cultural backgrounds, different levels of english competence, different learning profiles, different attitudes towards learning, different personalities, different levels of readiness, and so forth. These differences can significantly influence student learning. Accordingly, educators must ensure their instructional strategy caters for the different needs of students. However, it must be noted that differentiated instruction is different from individualised instruction. Dissimilar to differentiated instruction, individualised instruction involves delivering different content to each student (Gregory & Chapman, 2007). Differentiated instruction, on the contrary, entails delivering the same content to… Continue Reading...

Around 66% of the 1835 US abolition society's members were Christian clerics. [9: Sunshine, G. "Why you think the way you do."

Sweeping legislation such as what the EU proposes in its amendment to Firearms Directive may pose more problems than solutions, as the Czech Ministry (2016) has pointed out.

Political Ideologies: Social Liberalism

early influential liberals who lived in the United States was John Locke, the english philosopher.

Implicit in Cullen’s poetic styles and formats was the belief in a blended identity, and yet the poem “Simon the Cyrenian Speaks” shows that Cullen indeed did struggle with the double consciousness.

The approach can be considered ironic, in that what Swift states on the surface is not precisely what he means.

Crowdsourcing medicine is expensive, too, and cost-prohibitive for most patients given its lack of being covered yet by insurance.

Shakespeare’s work has been translated into virtually all major languages of the world. Also, his work is performed more regularly than any other work. Robert Burns, born close to one and a half centuries after the death of Shakespeare, was also a prominent poet. Similar to Shakespeare, Burns is regarded as Scotland’s national poet (Hogg, 2008).… Continue Reading...

Dreams the Unconscious Mind and Defense Mechanisms

Wizard of Oz, and Sherlock Holmes are the three examples from english literature that Newirth (2015) discusses from the perspective of Freudian theory. The collective unconscious and the collective dreams are made manifest in a society’s literature, art, media, and popular culture. Ego defense mechanisms in cultures could be anything from xenophobia to aggression. A historical-philosophical approach to psychoanalytic theory can therefore be successful integrated into international relations, political theory, and foreign policy. On the individual level, psychoanalysis also serves a symbolic role in the society. “Complex activities such as psychoanalysis...are hard to describe in linear discursive language and… Continue Reading...

The result was that she opened up trade with the Ottomans, who had of course been the enemies of Christendom for year.

The Film Never Cry Wolf

Never Cry Wolf is Mike. Mike is bicultural, speaking both the Inuit language and english. He is also caught between worlds: the world of his elders and traditional ecological knowledge, and the modern world of men like Tyler. Interestingly, it is Mike who exploits the natural resources of his native land, killing the wolves for his own personal financial gain. Yet Mike would not have needed to kill George and Angeline if the Inuit people had the same access to affordable healthcare as Tyler does. The gap between rich and poor, between the socially privileged and the socially disadvantaged,… Continue Reading...

The curricula, pedagogical tools, and learning strategies might be able to inform some elements of classroom design, but other elements may remain immutable. Therefore, instructors focusing on… Continue Reading...

Hillaire Belloc, a 20th century english historian once remarked upon this point that “Europe is the Faith, and the Faith is Europe” (Lucie-Smith, 2011). Roman Catholicism helped give shape to the West’s ideals and scholars like Thomas Aquinas incorporated the ideals of the classical philosophers into the Catholic philosophy of Europe so that striving for the Transcendental values aligned with living a Catholic life in grace, in Christ, for Christ, and for the Church. As trade with other countries began to allow nations to prosper and princes became rich, things… Continue Reading...

But this nature level can also be selected by the looking for people with a high level of translating experience, as they are more likely to understand the specific issues that can arise with that language pairing. A less experienced member of the crowd is likely to take longer, even if they deliver the same accuracy level as the more experienced translator –the correlation between productivity and tenure is fairly well-established.… Continue Reading...

Yet the baby was never returned and on May 12, 1932, a truck driver “who had stopped to relieve himself stumbled across the infant's decomposing body in a roadside wood near the Hopewell residence,” (Cornwell 1).

acculturation of Native Hawaiians and other ethnic children into a social order demanding english speech, adherence to U.S. social and political ideals, and industrious labor in their assigned jobs,” (McGregor & MacKenzie, 2014, p. 442). Acculturation is a systematic means of obliterating a culture and imposing a hegemonic white narrative. Taking away one’s language takes away the power to think and communicate effectively in ways that are different from the dominant culture paradigm. Even more importantly from a practical standpoint is the long-term effect of creating socioeconomic class hierarchies by systematically decimating language and cultural traditions. Referring to the… Continue Reading...

Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf Analysis

social critique Woolf makes through her titular character. Clarissa shows readers that english society represses natural sexual and emotional desire, leading to problems in relationships, problems with identity, and problems with mental health. Mrs. Dalloway shows that patriarchal societies create dissatisfaction, loneliness, isolation, and even suicidal ideation. Woolf goes so far as to link patriarchy with death itself. Death is a major motif in Mrs. Dalloway, serving several functions. One of those functions is to refer to way patriarchy kills the soul. The character of Septimus and his ongoing cries about the “death of the soul” underscores this trajectory… Continue Reading...

Legal Precedent Constitution Religion and Education

Post Blackstone initially set the precedent, so to speak, for english common law. english common law became the foundation for American common law, which values judicial precedent over statutes. Many European countries in fact use statutes over legal precedents as the means by which to determine legality, distinguishing the Anglo-American system from others. Blackstone indicated, “that precedents and rules be followed, unless flatly absurd or unjust; for though their reason be not obvious at first view, yet we owe such a deference to former times,” something that has become so entrenched in American judicial practices that it is sometimes taken… Continue Reading...

Immigration Essay

shares that over 49 million Americans or 26.34% of the population claim english ancestry. Such statistics place British Americans as the biggest American ethnic group (Barkan, 2013). The reason why so many British people came to the then colonies was for religious freedom. Some felt persecuted in Great Britain for their religious beliefs and sought out a fresh start elsewhere. They saw the American colonies to begin anew and practice their beliefs without fear or worry (Barkan, 2013). So many come to the United States now to escape persecution. It is interesting to see how the roots of immigration… Continue Reading...

Nature Vs Nurture Essay

debate has existed for thousands of years. Although the phrase was coined in 1869 by Francis Galton, an english polymath, humans have wondered what determined a person’s behavior and actions. While many believe a human’s behavior and personality are formed via a mixture of both nature and nurture, some have taken the side of ‘nature’, while others take on the side of ‘nurture’. Those that feel the nature side shapes people, contend that genotype and DNA determine personalities and traits. Those on the nurture side contend that humanity is born with a ‘blank slate’. Interactions and learning experiences thus… Continue Reading...

As he grew, he exhibited more and more disturbing patterns of behavior and held animosity towards his parents’ Christian religious beliefs, though he also railed against the “moral degeneracy on campus” in a note written just before his rampage (Harnden, 2007).

We watched, as if sitting on a chair nearby, as his characters drank, smoked, cursed, hunted elephants or had affairs. While some… Continue Reading...

Immigration in America

Mel Gibson

Passion of the Christ and Apocalypto are unique in Gibson’s choice to use non- english dialogue and subtitles. All of these films aim to put the audience into the protagonist’s world. Braveheart appeals to the “nationalist iconography” of Scottish identity and politics (Edensor 135). Telling this story on screen, Gibson captures the Scottish appeal for national identity and autonomy in the wake of centuries of British colonialism. In Braveheart, Gibson capitalizes on the near-mythic status of Sir William Wallace, a key figure in Scottish history (Edensor). Because Gibson captured the essence of Scottish nationalism and cultural pride, the film played… Continue Reading...

Rather than comparing the results of all students in mainstreamed classes uniformly, students with ESL parents might be compared against students of other ESL parents, even if they were proficient enough in english to take the same exams as their peers. There have also been calls for “dynamic assessments (i.e., sequences of instruction, testing, and retesting), the use… Continue Reading...

Conductor John DeMain reworked the original Gershwin compositions with Houston Grand Opera, staging Porgy and Bess to win both a Tony and a Grammy Award, thereby anchoring the production firmly within the realm of pop culture. Being from an opera, the song “Oh, I Can’t Sit Down” is lyrically driven, and the vocals remain the cornerstone of the piece. “Oh, I Can’t Sit Down” occurs about halfway through the opera, and… Continue Reading...

A recent survey of Latino diabetes patients… Continue Reading...

Apa Style: Benefits Of Practice

I am reading a book that I particularly like. When taking an english class, it is not enough to merely say that you like it; it is also necessary to analyze the book’s historical context and structure. Particularly in the sciences, however, what seems like common sense belief may not actually be valid, based upon empirical evidence. People tend to make generalizations based upon their own, personal anecdotal experience. For example, if they seem to get better after eating chicken soup, they assume chicken soup helps all colds. While this is a harmless example of beliefs being generated from… Continue Reading...

My Experience Of Traveling to China

month prior booking was needed. Language Barrier In all restaurants I went to, no staff member spoke the english language and the menus were all in Chinese. Thus, when ordering food there, one can only bank on guesswork; one never knows what will end up on one’s plate. At one time, I remember ordering chicken in a Beijing restaurant, (or, at least, I believed what I ordered was chicken), but ended up with duck on my plate. Hence, when traveling in China, tourists should download language translation apps to minimize confusion. In turn, Chinese restaurants could better accommodate tourists who do… Continue Reading...

The Impact Of Resource Management on Student Performance

intact, because I know how critical it is for at-risk students and english as Second Language learners to have full access to all the support they require in order to excel based on what researchers like Dashwood and Son (2017) have been able to show. For the special education classroom, I am hoping that the good will of the community will be enough that the gaps in assistance can be filled by volunteers from the community. Reflection Overall, the recommended reductions to the school’s budget focus on trimming the fat, so to speak—cutting supply fund allocations where possible, reducing… Continue Reading...

Educational Platform Development

Relationship of Parents and Community to the School The role of parents in the education of children cannot be underestimated. If teachers are the educators setting the example in the school, parents are the educators setting the example in the home. Teachers and parents have to work together and be on… Continue Reading...

Chomsky Pinker Vs Whorf's Model

another. This does occur all the time, particularly in english. Pinker’s theories work well for explaining in general how children acquire language, but fail to encompass things like how children raised in a multilingual environment might develop their language skills differently from children in a monolingual household. Languages also evolve over time, as can easily be seen in english, French, and other languages with a long written record highlighting important shifts in grammar, syntax, and semantics. Whorf would imply that these types of changes to the language would parallel historical, social, and political changes too. Pinker also suggests that… Continue Reading...

Using Apple & Samsung to Compare Gaap and Ifrs

here is sloppy, evidence that IFRS was not developed by native english speakers, who would have used wording that lends greater clarity. So I don\\'t know what the interest expense for Samsung was, and as such cannot even compute the times interest earned. Another issue with IFRS presentation came in trying to calculate the debt to assets ratio. Taking this as \\"long-term debt\\", as opposed to \\"total liabilities\\" (again, consistent wording is important for comparability), the category of long-term debt is not given a subtotal in IFRS presentation. The ratios we calculate are designed for ease of use with… Continue Reading...

In contrast to previous, largely english immigration, immigrants after the Civil War were largely Irish, Eastern European, Italian, German, and Asian (“The New Immigrants,” 2016, par. 4). This created a newly diverse American culture. More of these immigrants settled in cities. The concentration of immigrants allowed the new immigrants to retain more of their culture than immigrants in previous eras, but also generated greater cultural hostility from native-born Americans.

Bangladeshi Culture in Both Pre and Post Partition

of uneducated, poverty-ridden peasants; and a small though steadily increasing english-speaking bourgeois population. Bengal’s Muslim upper-class contributed significantly to the nationwide freedom struggle alongside fellow Muslim brethren, particularly after the Muslim League was created. In the 1930s-40s, they advocated a nationwide Islamic separatist movement. The Muslims of Bengal wholeheartedly supported the Muslim League’s adoption of the 1940 Lahore Resolution which demanded the establishment of an independent Muslim state (Cheema, 2013). After the August 1947 partition of India into two distinct states (namely India and Pakistan), East Bengal (as it was then called) became the Pakistani province, East Pakistan.

In english, the biggest problems were noticed, as it was here that six of the twelve students had trouble differentiating nouns from verbs. These grammatical errors are understandable as the class is mixed of native english and ESL students. More focus should be given to helping ESLs. Student learning was positively impacted by formative assessments: students showed a strong ability to respond to the formative assessment and demonstrate what they had learned. Students grew since the pre-test in mathematics and science but they are still struggling somewhat in… Continue Reading...

The proposed changes included introducing new technologies into many classrooms that previously had no technological component including english courses, building five bilingual courses into the curriculum with a ten-year plan of having the state’s first fully bilingual study program, changing the type and frequency of staff meetings, and mandating more parent-teacher meetings.

Research Design Issues in Education Dual Credit

Alternatively, perhaps dual credit itself is not the issue but higher education culture and climate are what is preventing disadvantaged students from attaining a desired achievement outcome. The research questions will then determine the appropriate research design, and whether it would be more effective to use qualitative or quantitative methods. I would then refer to the readings like Lopez-Alvarado (2017) and Muijs (n.d.) to help me formulate an… Continue Reading...

How Native Americans Shaped Modern American Identity

In the 1740s the Iroquois wearied of dealing with several often bickering english colonies and suggested the colonies form a union similar to the [Iroquois] League” (103). Taken together, while the Native American tribes were poorly served by the United States, especially with Andrew Jackson’s notorious Indian Removal Act of 1830 and the Trail of Tears that followed, many have retained their cultures and continue to celebrate their colorful heritages in ways that remain influential for the American identity today. .
