(Franklin) “Benjamin franklin helped write the Constitution of the United States, which were the laws for the new country, and he signed four of the most important documents in the new country's history. These were the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, the Treaty of Alliance with France, and the Treaty of Paris, 1783. Benjamin Franklin did amazing things to help get the new country going”. (Resource) Benjamin Franklin was very inspirational; He had done so many wonderful things for our country with funding the first library, discovering what electricity was, signing the Declaration of Independence. He was all about the American people and making sure things got done right not half fast.
He also developed a list of virtues to better himself and his attitude towards life itself. Franklin was also a very inspiring individual in the way that he expressed his religious views, which influenced others to be able to seek God into their lives as well. Benjamin Franklin’s formal education ended when he was only ten years old. Franklin became interested continuing his education while apprenticing for his brother james at a printshop. While apprenticing for his brother James, Benjamin decided that he would improve his education.
He started out as a young boy, working in a print shop. He was lucky enough to retire from printing, which is when he picked up his interest in science, among other things. Finally, later in his life after he had already become famous for his experiments on electricity, he became a politician; doing anything he could to achieve freedom for the United States of America. In the following paragraphs, I will describe how these steps of Franklin’s life led him to become a very big part of the
They had tightened their requirements because careers like doctors, lawyers, and engineers did as well. They wanted to improve the teaching department by only hiring the best of the best. “And the increased years in teacher education furthered the socialization of prospective teachers into the occupational identity that was promoted by school administrators.” (Rousmaniere, 34) Teachers were paid more than nurses and clerical jobs. They also had equal pay with the males workers and were also promised their jobs after marriage and childbirth. Even though teaching was one of the highest paying jobs at the time, they wanted a certain type of class.
These people helped encourage others to think outside the box and question society itself. The foundation of science was created and simple inventions like the mechanical clock arose. Tension between church and science began to emerge as this new way of thinking spread. The basics of politics are another aspect of the renaissance, and they helped contribute to diplomatic conventions. In “Fiat Lux” distinctive groups of people begin to develop that correlated with their culture and region.
Thomas started out as a curious young boy who was infatuated with machines, and other laws of the world. He always tried to know how everything worked. As Thomas grew, he became an inventor, and either tried to make something that one could not, or would invent something on his one. Due to the fact that Thomas Edison may have borrowed some ideas from someone else, some people believe that Thomas may not be worthy to be on Mount Rushmore. However, he had earned over 1,093 U.S. patents (a government authority to sell an invention for a period of time), and simply took a step further with the borrowed ideas, making it possible for the invention to be a success.
He invented many things that people use every day with out any thought to it such as the bifocals. Even as talented as Franklin was he had failed experiments as well, commonly known as the Glass Armonica, it was an musical invention that was nearly impossible to play the right way and had a tendency of cracking into pieces (O’Brien 73). He also had other inventions like the lighting rod, the odometer, and many
In 1726, Benjamin partnered with Hugh Meredith, a fellow worker, and opened a new print shop. Ben’s perseverance paid off and their shop quickly developed into a successful business venture even though there were already two other print shops in town. Franklin was soon recognized as the most skilled and industrious printer in Philadelphia. In 1729, Ben bought a newspaper, the Pennsylvania Gazette, from Keimer, his former employer. Franklin not only printed this paper, but he often contributed pieces to it under different aliases.
Discussing how many of his colleagues viewed him as the luckiest candidates of the fifty states in his bid to become the senator of Illinois, he expands in his depiction of how he felt as if he was the “the rookie who showed up after the game” during his first appearance in the nations capital. Obama describes in chapter two, a meeting with George W. Bush at the White House. Reminiscing about how many democratic audiences are surprised when he tells them that he doesn’t consider Bush a bad man. However, with that said Obama does write that he felt many of his policies favored the wealthy. Chapter three goes into depth on the passage of bills and laws in order to reshape the constitution our founding fathers wrote.
Source 14 shows this by saying it “broke the mould” implying that women were one step further into breaking their stereotype and more opportunities which were opening up for them, by sending some students on to Higher Education. There was a greater emphasis on academic standards which could be viewed as significant steps forward in providing girls with “different role models” and improving the opportunities available to them. This can be supported by Frances Mary Buss who could be a considered a new role model for these girls. She campaigned for girls rights to sit examinations and made large public speeches helping in the progression for women’s chances and breaking into the public sphere. There were educational reforms for middle and upper-class girls, with the establishment of new day high schools, such as The North London Collegiate School founded by Frances Mary Buss.
