2). Instead of searching for a better educational environment, students look for better tests numbers. Lang Wood goes on by stating “Students can easily become discouraged and negative about education in general, which affects their learning ability” (par. 2). In addition to what Lang Wood believes, Stephens claims, students who are taking the test suffer from stress in result of worrying about passing it.
This quote shows that the bullies are more concentrated on bullying their victims rather than their school work. This quote also shows that bullies are not very concentrated in school and will probably fail in school and not get a good career. Another example that shows that students are beginning not to care about school is, “Many of the victims are disengaged in school” (Wolpert 1). This evidence is important because the victims are scared of bullies and are really not concentrating in school like before they began to be bullied. Multiple victims who are hurt from being bullied are starting to fail in school.
Due to the fact that Elizabethans were afraid of evil, the odd people in communities started being accused of witchcraft. Witchcraft had a great impact of the daily and social lives of the Elizabethans. Soon neighbors slung accusations at each other and started ruckus all over England. Children rolled on the floor having convulsions and blaming random people for hexing or possessing them (Saintives). Anyone with odd names, weird looks, or were found mumbling chants, were accused of witchcraft and were put to death.
Coming from a High School athlete I don’t think that high school athletes rule U.S. High Schools. I think that they get the same treatment everyone else does or they may even be treated worse. Some teachers hate high school sports so if a student plays a sport in high school that student might have a disadvantage in that class. But it could also go either way if you do get that teacher that likes high school sports the teacher might go a little bit easier on you. Referring back to the Article students from Columbine High School said that high school athletes are given forms of privilege that other students perceive to be unfair and that make some athletes feel that they identify as deviant within the normative structure of the school.
Local magistrates took the initiative when young girls claimed that women in the village were inflicting pain on them, which resulted in all the hangings and overall hype of the Salem Witch Trials. What truly caused the Salem Witch Hysteria of 1692? Although this is a question people assume has a simple answer, it is a topic that really, could result in several different complex
While these two events were decades apart they had many similarities. They both began from false accusations, both spread unnecessary panic, and both used fear to gain power. The Salem Witch Hunts were a cause of mass hysteria that came from accusations made by Abigail Williams, Betty Paris, Mercy Lewis, and Tituba. These girls were caught dancing in the woods and accused of being witches due to some of their peculiar behavior which included screaming, bending into awkward positions, and making strange sounds. To keep themselves out of trouble the girls said other women in the community were practicing witchcraft.
These ideas were then widely supported and imposed upon people by theologians and lawyers making diabolic interference central to the idea of witchcraft. By the end of the sixteenth century the demonic conception of witchcraft has been defused into popular culture and most popular denunciations for witchcraft in most parts of Europe involved the devil. The spread of diabolism “led inevitably to a great feminization of witchcraft”. Ankarloo argues that only after these learned ideas were injected into the lower level of society could the persecution of witches on a large scale begin during the 16th and up to the 17th
So with that being said, many students could feel uncomfortable hearing it at school. Also, if the class isn’t really a diverse classroom, that could make it even harder. Students won’t feel that it’s appropriate to speak up about being uncomfortable with the language or word choice, especially when the other students don’t seem to mind. The last thing a student wants is to be the odd guy out. The word is blatantly attached to racism, and that makes it a hard case to argue.
“And I look - and there was Goody Good... Aye sir, and Goody Osburn” (p. 49). At first, the social outcasts were accused, then respected characters such as Elizabeth Procter and Rebecca Nurse are accused as a result of the town's mass hysteria. And so this mass hysteria is created, only by young girls, but it has spiraled into a black hole consuming everyone in the town of Salem, regardless of their social
Lac is it good or the bad students. Many students would agree that it is bad for the student because it teaches them that when they grow up they should be unfair and unreasonable. They will do the same thing to other teens once they are adults, and adults and teens will forever be unhappy with each other. This would also make students lack intelligence because all that time they would be in LAC they could be learning their subject. It will also cause stress for the students because they will have a hard time learning there subject.
