From the beginning, Gatto builds his ethos in the area of education by providing a range of his past teaching experiences; this ensures the reader is aware of Gatto’s expertise and familiarity in the field of education. He talks about boredom first because many students and teachers can probably relate to it. If the students are bored and uninspired, then teachers will be more likely to lose their drive and motivation. Additionally, Gatto uses a personal story involving his grandfather to show how the institution is entrenched in the status quo of the school system in an attempt to make a connection with the reader as the reader may have had a similar experience. This shows school isn’t supposed to be fun; it’s supposed to be rigid in nature.
Gender comm Introduction Relationship between man and woman has always been popular topic for discussion among scholars. Because of this popularity today we have vast number of related literature. Groups can divide this entire amount: by the nature of the relationship (romantic, friendship); by the way of implementing communication (verbal, nonverbal); by social environment (work place, family, etc.). For this work I chose to classify the literature by these particular groups to make review structured Gender relations are usually considered in the context of the differences between man and woman. Such differences as physical, social and psychological.
The ways Latimer’s family see him affect his behavior and own self-identity. Latimer admits early on he believes his father thinks of him as “an odd child, and had little fondness for [him] (5).” Mr. Letherall, a grade school tutor, makes Latimer believe there is something wrong when he places his thumbs on young Latimer’s head saying, “The deficiency is there, sir – there; and here… That must be brought out, sir, and this must be laid to sleep (6).” His teacher attempted to rid Latimer of the defect by teaching him and assigning him a variety of readings. These ideas from Latimer’s father and teacher shape how Latimer views himself. Latimer continues living as if he is flawed, classifying his nature as sensitive and declaring it “could never foster it into happy, healthy development (8).” Again, the certainty that he was not normal arises when he re-tells his time at Geneva. Latimer’s powerless attitude follows him to Geneva and according to him is the reason he cannot make
Shakespeare's men are perhaps the topic of conversation that comes to mind, when one discusses his catalog. From Othello to Romeo, Kings Henry V and Richard III, all strong men who had to face much personal, and sometimes public, adversity and helped shape how we perceive gender roles in modern society. However, if one were to look past the tangled story lines, the strong and weak men in his body of work, and all the other minutia, we find the women that impacted the lives of those men, and even the roots of some of the social stigmas we deal with today. In order to really understand the how deeply Shakespeare influenced the stigmas on gender roles we deal with today, one must go back to his time and understand how women were perceived back then. Women who were born into “higher ranked” families would often be presented as possessions and even passed around between fathers and husbands.
Gender Roles and Relationships in Literature Literature has played a key role in the reflection of certain aspects of society, namely the roles of men and women in relationships and how they deal with each other. It has served as a means to teach, inform, and entertain the reader on the different types of relationships which exist and the consequences which may arise. Literature has also helped us take a closer look at ourselves and how we interact with each other on different levels, and has also shed light upon how each of us carry out different roles in our relationships with significant others. The different ways couples have been portrayed in literary works shows that all relationships are not created equal and that as we enter the dating/matrimonial game, we are all dealt different cards to play with. As reflected in different works of literature that deals in relationships between men and women, the roles they play can have positive and negative effects regardless whether the male or female assumes the role as dominant figure in the relationship.
Making Fun of an Audience In Mark Twain’s “Advice to Youth” satire is integrated into the text to make fun of an audience, even though he gives “…Didactic, instructive,” or “Good advice” (291). He criticizes the standard relationship form between children and their parents, specifically attacking the lack of humor between children and parents. When parents take things way too seriously when something “bad” happens which is not the best approach to solve minor problems that arise. Twain is skilled in many different art forms of language. He advises the reader to learn the same skill sets early on in life so that they can take advantage of the opportunities in front of them.
Considering the character of Lady Macbeth, discuss the treatment of gender in Macbeth. Throughout Shakespeare’s tragic play Macbeth (Norton, 815), the treatment of gender is explored through many characters. Lady Macbeth embodies masculine characteristics that starkly contrast the role of women during that time. Shakespeare’s deliberate and heavy use of imagery and a plethora or literary devices assist in underpinning critical themes in the play and create a sense of meaning for the play. Lady Macbeth’s disposition brings to the fore many themes concerning gender, including; the definition of manhood and alternatively femininity, the role of women in the play highlighted through the characters of Lady Macbeth and the Witches, and the synonymy between masculinity and cruelty.
It is because this may not only lead to a damaged relationship between teachers and students, but also can lead to negative associations. Consequently, positive punishment cannot be used frequently. Apart from the above method, there is another way to chastise the students which is negative punishment. Negative punishment is the removal of a favorable stimulus after an unwelcome performance in order to decreases that response, which means if students did something wrong and their favorable things such as toys or smart phones will be taken away as a punishment. Jason, one of my students, as an example, he loves playing PSP and NDS very much, so before
Studies have shown that the females use both sides of the brain where as the male’s use only one side of the brain. More reason why a parent my chooses to send their child to these schools it could let the child be their self, the style of teaching and what was being taught and the socialization of children. A parent who is considering sending their child to a girl’s school or boy’s school may wonder what makes these schools so special. Boys that attend a single sex school thrive in this environment. Without girls around there are none for them to impress they can just be themselves and pursue different subjects in language, the arts without being laughed at by the opposite sex.
The problem of education of boys and girls together has always been quite important and stressing, because many parents believe that if the classes are divided according to the gender of the children, it can increase the effectiveness of the educational process. Years ago separate classes for boys and girls really existed, but today such an approach is considered to be too conservative and strict. Nevertheless, there still supporters of this manner of education and there are opponents to its and both teams try to persuade one another in the sensibility of their ideas and evidence. Naturally, the problem has its positive and negative sides. To begin with, let us dwell on the advantages of studying separately.
