In today's society a college education is an essential part of pursuing a career. While in college a person can determine his strengths and weaknesses in whatever path he decides to take in life. A college education is also the first step in being self-sufficient and living by yourself. College life also gives a person a chance to express his ingenious and creative abilities and to supplement the skills that he learned in high school.

“Epic Theatre turns the spectator into an observer, but arouses his capacity for action, forces him to take decisions...the spectator stands outside, studies.” (Bertolt Brecht. Brecht on Theatre. New York:Hill & Yang, 1964. p37) The concept of “epic theatre” was brought to life by German playwright, Bertolt Brecht. This direction of theatre was inspired by Brecht’s Marxist political beliefs. It was somewhat of a political platform for his ideologies. Epic theatre is the assimilation of educatio

Feminism in Jane Eyre Jay Sheldon English 101 MWF 11:00 - 12:00 Feminism has been a prominent and controversial topic in writings for the past two centuries. With novels such as Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, or even William Shakespeare's Macbeth the fascination over this subject by authors is evident. In Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre the main character, Jane Eyre, explores the depth at which women may act in society and finds her own boundaries in Victorian England. As well, along with the

Mr. Stossel relayed a statistic which stated that children watch on the average twenty hours of television a week, which is about three hours a day.

Racism, sexism and homophobia is growing on college campuses around the country. In response, many universities have adopted policies that address bigotry by placing restrictions on speech. The alternative to such restrictions, many administrators argue, is to allow bigots to run rampant and to subject their targets to a loss of equal educational opportunity. The power of a university to eliminate bias on campus ultimately depends not on its ability to punish a racist speaker, but instead on th

The American Indians never considered the lands their property because it's belong to God and no one have the right to buy, sell, nor own i

Whenever you are in any educational situation, you are subject to perspectives and bias of the instructors. In an essay entitled Indians, by Jane Tompkins, it discusses how different biases may reflect upon one's concept of history. It is imperative to realize that when learning, which generally involves someone's concept of history, we are consequently subject to that person's perspectives that may be a result of their upbringing. In the essay Tompkins regarding history, Tompkins says it co

The Literary Contributions of King Alfred the Great Our understanding of the literary achievements of King Alfred depend very much upon what we believe about his early education. If we are content to accept the stories of Asser, the famous biographer of Alfred, that he reached his twelfth birthday before he learned to read (Keynes 75), then we must reckon his literary career as a phenomenon which can only be described, not explained. Or, if that is not satisfactory, we may compare him in his ad

Throughout most of my school years, before attending MCTC, I had never experienced inter-racial schooling. I went to a small high school with about twenty minority students. These students were not outcasts they were treated as any other non- minority student. Therefore, I had little experience with minorities in a non-minority school. After the speech that was given by Michael Jefferson, I was more informed on the effects of stereotyping of minority students in a non-minority school. Stereotyp

Educational Studies Mystification According to McNeil, mystification is a technique used by teachers who are not fully informed on the topic in which they are instructed to teach. Teachers often use mystification when teaching a complex, or controversial topic. They mystify the topic by making it appear very important, but unknowable, thus leaving the student with a sense of wonder, or mystery. Mystification does count as a form of knowledge control because mystification makes it impossible for

Introduction: Literature offers a strong and passionate voice for the past. The literature of the Native Canadian is a voice we, the people of Canada, can no longer ignore. There is little to be gained by dwelling on the past. Nevertheless, there is much to be realized by accepting what has passed, with all of its mistakes and dust we might otherwise wish to hide under the carpets. English literature, since at least the sixteenth century, has a firm grounding in Canadian history. As a white Ang

Students are graduating from highschool without adequate knowledge of the three R's. Universities are recruiting a multitude of incompetent pseudo-scholars.

Schools in Canada have recently become the battleground for the fight over how much political correctness should be allowed to infiltrate grade school classrooms. One can take two sides when dealing with such issues as violent toys, “good clean fun”, the benefits and disadvantages of political correctness. There is much controversy about violent toys which are far from being considered politically correct. The toys that enter many grade school classrooms throughout the country may also seem off

The Olympic Games are an international sports festival that began in ancient Greece.

The revival of the Olympic Games took place in 1896, and since then they have been staged every fourth year, except during World War I and World War II. Perhaps the basic difference between the ancient and modern Olympics is that the former was the ancient Greeks' way of saluti

Yet as fresh prospectives on history now suggest, in this search for freedom and order, the masculine craving for adventure, demanded restrictions upon women, forcing her into deeper confinement, even within her limited province. Thus the rights of a man are separated by the expectancies of a woman. Each subsequent story deals with a search for truth

Wuthering Heights, written by Emily Brontë, can be classified as a Romantic novel, because it contains many tenets of Romanticism. Romanticism was the initial literary reaction to changes in society caused by the industrial revolution: it was an attempt to organize the chaos of the clash between the agrarian and the industrial ways of life. Romanticism was developing in a time in which all of society’s rules, limits, and restraints on how each person should act where being questioned, tried, an
