History of Television in the United States
We all own at least one television. Many people at least watch one hour of television, whether it be the news or their favorite show. Once invented, television significantly changed life, as it was previously known. Television was invented before World War 2, but production stopped shortly after the start of World War 2. Television impact on the media was not predicted. The four networks were always competing against each other to be the best. Television influenced American culture and society in many ways. A major invention during the 1930s drastically changed life known in the 1930s.
A single person did not invent the television, but rather it was a vicious battle as inventors and corporations realized the technology as a possible profit. Before, networks could start mass-producing television, many economic and technical problems had to be fixed. ?Television technology advanced through the 1930s, most importantly was the development in 1937 of the coaxial cable, which allowed long-distance broadcast and networking, (Schwartz).? To receive television shows, an antenna had to be pointed correctly to receive the station.

How Can A Student's Cultural Knowledge and School Knowledge be Contextualized Within the Classroom?

How Can A Student's Cultural Knowledge and School Knowledge be Contextualized Within the Classroom?
Anne, a 15 year old Vietnamese American student stared out the window
while the teacher droned on in the background. Her thoughts centered on
lunch and her friends, and family. On a deeper level, her thoughts were
about friendship, loyalty, kinship, and how children gain status and
acceptance in the social structure of the school. Anne?s attention was
brought back into the classroom when the teacher announced that ?this
information will be on the test?. Mechanically, Anne began to write as the
teacher dictated notes. When the teacher had finished dictating the notes,
Anne?s thoughts wandered back to her own concerns.

House on Mango Street

House on Mango Street
Chapter 1-The House on Mango Street
?The way she said it made me feel like nothing.?

It is hard for me to understand that some people have to live in poverty, and small run down houses without running water and such. When I read this quote I could just imagine a little girl sitting up looking at the nun in her tattered clothes and saying..yes this is where I live. I can just imagine her feeling like she is nothing compared to others.

Letter Written By MLK From Birmingham City Jail, Alabama

Letter Written By MLK From Birmingham City Jail, Alabama
While confined here in the Birmingham city jail, I came across your recent statement calling my present activities "unwise and untimely." Seldom do I pause to answer criticism of my work and ideas. If I sought to answer all the criticisms that cross my desk, my secretaries would have little time for anything other than such correspondence in the course of the day, and I would have no time for constructive work. But since I feel that you are men of genuine good will and that your criticisms are sincerely set forth, I want to try to answer your statements in what I hope will be patient and reasonable terms.

A Day in the Life of a Teacher

A Day in the Life of a Teacher
A Day in the Life of a Teacher I hear the sound of my alarm clock at 6:30am. Time to get up! I wish it was Saturday, no school! No, I?m not a child, nor a student, but a teacher! You don?t think we enjoy everyday at work, do you? No. That?s rubbish. Let me continue with my story of a day in the life of a teacher.. As I force myself out of bed, a chilling thought comes over me. It?s Wednesday. This means I still have three whole days to get through until the weekend. Better get a move on if I want to make it on time. First, I take a shower. I do this every morning to liven myself up and to prepare for the day ahead of me. Today first up we have a whole school assembly. That?s one reason why I don?t like Wednesdays. The other few reasons I particularly don?t like the day Wednesday is that I have recess yard duty and in the afternoon is the paper parade. I step out of the shower, thinking such thoughts of what has been happening in the last few days and what I have to do today. I get dressed and go out to have breakfast.

Dostoevsky's The Brothers Karamazov

Dostoevsky's The Brothers Karamazov
The Brothers Karamazov deals with many facets of life. More importantly though, the novel peers into the mind and its response to death. The characters all run from death in some way, and only those who can accept the suffering find justification. In addition to the theme of death, the novel acts as an autobiography of Dostoevsky, expounding his various beliefs and values. To get his theme across, Dostoevsky utilized several stylistic devices, such as imagery, irony, and dreams. Yet, his ability to write down what a character was thinking at certain moments helped shed light on that person?s beliefs better than if he presented himself only through dialogue or description.

Stranger in a Strange Land

Stranger in a Strange Land
Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert Heinlein takes the themes portrayed in the book and directly criticizes the Western Culture. As Heinlein said, ?My purpose in this book was to examine every major axiom of western culture, to question each axiom, throw doubt on it? (Jelliffe 161). These axioms are where feels the Western Culture fails and so he uses the themes to criticize humans of the Western Culture by pointing out these faults. The themes of the story portray this by having Valentine Michael Smith, a human raised by Martians, come to earth to teach his knowledge which contradict what the Western Culture feels to be true. ?Stranger is a strong-minded work of culture criticism, no doubt about it (Stover 58).? The themes that Heinlein uses are those of religion, sex, and love to make his point of where the Western Culture fails as a whole. Heinlein?s writing of his novels after 1961 when he wrote Stranger in a Strange Land, has changed the genre of science-fiction, because he not only wrote about strange worlds and crazy adventures, but Heinlein also tried to include criticism and a message to the reader in his novels to explain problems that he felt humans have. This became Heinlein?s writing style after 1957 when he reached the age of 50 and was on the top of science-fiction. Because science-fiction was considered to be for kids, Heinlein began to write more for adult audiences by adding the real problems and criticism into his novel (Drucolli 210). ?The publication of Stranger in a Strange Land marked drastic shift in Heinlein?s writing, at least in social criticism and controversial subject matter? (Drucolli 227). ?As he had done immediately before World War II, Heinlein helped to reshape (with Stranger) the genre and make it more significant and valuable then it had been? (Drucolli 211). This has been a large step for science-fiction, having substance rather than just entertainment value. Having been one of the most famous science fiction books for this reason, ?Billy Joel saw fit to mention the title in his 1989 Top-40 hit about history, ?We Didn?t Start the Fire?? (Ager). In Stranger, Heinlein?s point that he tries to make is that of the Western Culture and where it fails. ?One says that Heinlein examined many of the common assumptions by which Americans lived and then wrote a novel presenting the other side of each?

Good News Regarding Vouchers and School Choice

Good News Regarding Vouchers and School Choice
Good News v. Milford is very good news indeed for advocates of school vouchers and faith-based organizations (FBOs). The Supreme Court?s 6-3 decision upholding the right of a Christian youth group to meet in public schools after class hours is a significant signal of the Court?s willingness to treat religious organizations and viewpoints on an evenhanded basis.
