Horror stories have been around for a long time, but the 1st story to be called horror was a book by Horace Walpole in 1794 called The Castle Of Otranto. Although not scary compare to today's standers but back then its supernatural feel, mysterious story melodrama started a craze of stories with supsense and thrills. These stories began to pick up populatery. For the next couple of years these type of stories were one of most popluar genres. But as the early 19th century came, the age of enlightenment gave way to a new way of thinking.
3.) What does projecting our youths population do for our justice system? In the year 1995 is when people began too project the next centuries juvenile crime rates. James Wilson figured that the nation at the end of the decade in the 1990's that there would be roughly one million more teenagers in the delinquent ages of fourteen to seventeen than there was in 1995. This raised his eyebrows and he started too put together numbers to figure up the effect of what this many more teenagers would have on the society.
Why you chose the book: I chose this book because it focuses on disabilities and shows the reader how alike disabled children and not disabled children are. They also have the same goals in life. Many children don’t realize how normal disabled children actually are, they think of them as weird or “not like us.” The focus of this book is Anti- Bias. I found the book at the one -dollar bookstore, I was looking around and I saw it displayed on a shelf and thought it would be perfect for the book share. I chose it because of the related books on http://www.childpeacebooks.org/cpb/Protect/antiBias.php.
“[We live] in an abundant society where people have laptops, cell phones iPods and minds like empty rooms” by far this quote really does describe our society because we get everything we want yet we cannot grasp how to use proper literacy. Though 75 years ago children would read for fun because it was the only thing they could do like an example: would be African-American children they had to share one book with three other kids but could not complain and young children would always have some that would read to them. Lee is trying to yield out to the generations of the next ones saying your knowledge may be wrong if you get it on the internet, Lukudu 2 but if you read a book you could obtain more information and you can open up to more concepts.

Although English is not my second language, I feel that “proper” English is. From Amy Tan’s essay and my own life experience, I believe that too many people in America are treated unfairly because they do not speak “proper” English. I remember growing up with my aunt and having trouble with my English because the school system was so poor. I had to be taken out of my normal classes in third grade and put in a class for kids who had trouble with their English. On career day my teacher asked me what I wanted to be, and I told her I wanted to be a lawyer.
Middle school has prepared me for high school and beyond in many ways. The teachers don’t take excuses as much as in elementary school or 6th and 7th grade. They will give you a zero if you don’t turn in your homework, which helps you in the future because no one is going to sit around and cater to you and allow you to take everything as a joke. School shouldn’t be any different. They also show you how you might use different things in the future.
Books should not be banned in schools, because they teach valuable life lessons that students should learn before adulthood. Lessons such as how to express yourself, and just about any lesson you could think of. The number of life lessons taught by books is infinite for there is no limit to what one can and cannot teach through writing. This is why books are the best sources for life lessons. No books should ever be banned because for each book that is banned, there possibly could be one life lesson that will not be learned by the next generation.
Youths in Gangs PRE-INTERVIEW WORKSHEET Nick Ven Stuben Steven L. Sakchs, Author of Street Gang Awareness: A Resource Guide For Parents And Professionals Interview will be conducted via telephone Interview Research I selected Steven L. Sachs because he wrote the book “Street Gang Awareness: A Resource Guide For Parents And Professionals”. I personally have not read the whole book, but I did read some of the parts on why kids join gangs and early warning symptoms. Sachs knows a lot of information on gangs in general and is one of the top experts in that field. I’ve tried to find more research on Steven L. Sachs, but he is a very difficult author to find information because this was his one and only book that was ever published and it was back in 1997. I think he would be a very good interviewee because of his knowledge on the subject.
Public school is better than home schooling because public school mentally prepares students for the real world; giving students knowledge on how to deal with bullying and peer pressure, and also allowing them to interact with different students and teachers. "Yes, read that part again-- government schools were never about truly educating your child; they were and are about creating happy workers and taxpayers, people afraid to challenge the status quo and unable to read and think for themselves. " (Vaughan 647). Although some parents have jobs and are not able to home school their children, public school could be their option. Public school education prepares students for the real world by displaying to them how school is a job by giving them the imagery of having an 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. job that comes with hard work and dedication.
Essay: On the breakfast table I told my mom that I was going to be an honor graduate, knowing that it would be easier for me to get into an university; she gave me a pat on the back and responded frowning "but you won't be able to because our legal status". Many challenges I have faced in my life like learning a new language and assimilating a new culture, making new friends and adapting to a new environment, but by far the most difficult is to accept the fact that I won't be able to succeed once I finish school. Overcoming some of this challenges have helped me build my confidence, some others have helped me become a stronger individual and some others have helped me strive for success, but what has had the most influential power on me is my family with all their morals and expectations, always expecting from me to fight for a better future, always encouraging me to be better than other people yet doing it with a humble heart and helping them throughout this path. Here in Texas I found what friends really meant. During this lapse of time I have made incredible lifelong friends that have supported me in my lows and highs without judging nor criticizing me and always encouraging me to stay in school saying that it's fun to be in school since not everybody necessarily needs to be an academic robot "you can always balance academics and fun" Through honesty, respect and self motivation I have overcome many challenges, I like looking back at my childhood when I asked my mom why we were coming to the united states and she replied with a smile said "we are in search of a better future".
