Foulcher is a poet, but also a teacher. His poem ‘Martin and the Hand Grenade’ was based upon a history lesson he taught. ‘The class pauses for history’ uses ‘history’ as a pun to show the setting was a history lesson and the class was waiting for their next instruction, and also because the class is pausing to experience war before they are born. Foulcher was inspired to write this poem not only by the lesson itself, but also by the naïve response that children have to war which contrasts with the response of adults. An adult’s understanding of the seriousness of war can be seen through the imagery used where Martin ‘edges out the firing pin’ of the grenade, ‘fingers the serrations’ with ‘his father’s bleak skill’.
Because of this the people with the lower social class may say something that they think the other people want them to say, rather than saying what they actually want to say. Another strength of using group interviews is that when researching the social classes and the university applicants it can tell us a reason why we don’t see certain social classes in university. When doing these group interviews you can gain crucial information about the reasons why people don’t attend
Social norms are what is considered to be acceptable in a given situation, but sometimes they are often unfair or injustice and are changed. The social norms we follow today are sometimes questioned by people on whether or not they are fair to everyone but to others, they are considered fair. so when is it appropriate to question normalities of society? It is appropriate to question social norms whenever they appear to be unfair, unequal, and just plain out wrong. social norms are constantly changing from each time period so who is to say what we consider socially acceptable now won't change in another twenty years.
Introduction Dr. Terry Mortenson, author of the article “The Origin of Old-Earth Geology and its Ramifications for Life in the 21st Century,” describes some important points of an old debate that is relevant in everyone’s life. In this paper, I give a basic summary of what the author’s purpose was for writing the article previously mentioned. I will also describe some of the articles strengths and weaknesses that affected my thoughts and views on the Old-World theory. The author did a great job for the most part, but I will discuss some information that would make this article stronger. Article Summary “The Origin of Old-Earth Geology and its Ramifications for Life in the 21st Century,” is an article that informs the readers of the impact of the Old-World theory.
But as you get older, it will start affecting our self concept, self esteem and self image because we will start caring about being part of the group. Being a teenager, if you’re not part of a group or not fitting in, it will deeply affect the way we think ourselves like we might think we are not good enough and might make us fall into depression since you think you are an outcast. Being an adult, we will start not to care what other people think about us because we have more self esteem than any other age so you don’t really mind about being judged. When you get to the old age, some people might take it the hard way because of the fact that they are ageing. It might make them feel less confident about themselves and might fall into depression or even just stay inside the house and not go out.
I think by having a random selection it allows the students to use their communication skills with one another. But on the other hand you would like to live with someone that respects your belongs and you feel some what comfortable. Not being matched with the same person can give you and that person time to bond and learn different things about one another. For example, if you rooming with the popular cheerleader, or and artistic student on campus, you may find out that you have more things in common than you think you do, and they may not be the person you thought they were. In her article, Dowd argues against the use of such application like RoomBug and website like URoomSurf.com by claiming that, first of all, being able to choose their own roommates would block out the opportunity for students to mature socially.
Also, a more specific type of person who could have read this could a historian. This is because; historians study many significant periods in history which would relate to the Cold War. On a personal level, the author wrote the text to show the tragedy that the Cold War was and how technology would move forward while humans do not. In a way, the story is directed to the audience to show what the future could be, without a doubt, if no one would take action to resolve a problem that can affect the future greatly, including mankind. This is all poop.
Response Paper #1 “Harrison Bergeron” by Kurt Vonnegut Jr. Passage Selection The first passage I chose that helped me better understand the reading was the line: “If I tried to get away with it, then other people would try to get away with it – and pretty soon we’d be right back to the dark ages again, with everybody competing against everybody else.” It gives you the idea that what we now see in our modern society would have been almost completely incomprehensible to far past centuries. It also makes you wonder if the common desire for equality that we now strive for to make things equal for everyone can be taken too far. The second passage that I felt was important to me was: “Gee- I could tell that one was a doozy,” ”You can say that again.” ”Gee- I could tell that one was a doozy.” This selection was important to me because it gave me a better understanding of the situation. The previous events in the literature were very drastic and sad.
