Schooling isn't that important to the Amish because they aren't going to go to college. But, if someone was to try to leave the Amish and come to our society, they are looked down upon and they usually have trouble fitting in. Once you leave the Amish, you are not allowed to come back. The only exception to coming back is if you admit to your wrong doing, then you have to be accepted. It works the same way if Americans were to try to join; they have to give up everything they know and be accepted into the Amish culture.
Spartan Women According to feminist Simon de Beauvoir author of The Second Sex “More than any other Greek women, Spartans have been subject of praise or blame from antiquity to present.” . The women of Sparta have a vital role within Sparta society as they were responsible for producing healthy babies as well as partaking in the running of the economy. They differ greatly from their Greek counterparts in that not only do they have an education which enables them to participate on Spartan society but they can own land and partake in sports and ceremonies. Unlike their other Greek counterparts Spartan women received a thorough education and harsh upbringing so they could play a greater role in Spartan society. Spartans were they only Greek society that prescribed a public education for girls.
Melissa Horstketter HIS 105 300 Essay The film of 300 says a lot about what it was like back in the ancient history between the Spartans and the Persians. The Spartans were taught to fight for their state right away when they were a child. The movie shows all the different aspects of the Spartan culture. It shows how they just throw away babies that aren’t perfect, and how they take the children away from home at only the age of seven to train as a fighter. They show the basic ways of how the Spartans lived at the time.
The story is about a lost generation, as seen through the eyes of Paul Baumer, a nineteen year old boy who had enlisted in the war effort with his classmates fresh out of high school. They joined after listening to the patriotic speeches of their schoolmaster but after living through the realities of the disgusting and brutal life at the front they realize that
This will take the emphasis off of the recognition and place it on the original idea of the care packages and writing to the troops. Potential Outcomes: I think after this project, the students will understand that not all of our service men and women have people to talk to back at home. Some of the soldiers do not have family or anyone to support them and make them feel loved. I think that the school would benefit from this project because they are a patriotic school. There are many students in the school who have fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, or grandparents in the war.
Her father was an alcoholic who was disowned by his family (Women). Her mother Anna Roosevelt, sometimes called “Granny” because of her old-fashion style, was somewhat distant to her family (Women). When her mother died in 1892 because of diphtheria, she moved in with her maternal grandmother, Mary Ludlow Hall (Roosevelt History). In 1894 when she was ten, her father, whom she rarely ever saw passed because of alcoholism (Roosevelt Bio). When she was sent off to school in England to enroll at Allenwood Academy, she went in a shy and awkward child, but when she was taken under the wing of the headmistress of the academy, Mlle.
For well-off southern white women who stayed at home during the war, there was a lot of responsibility to take on. They had to keep the rich businesses of their husbands who went off to the war. According to Maddie Dwyer, “With their husbands being the wealthiest of society (planters or business owners), they had a lot of responsibility to take over once they were Gone.” (Dwyer 2). This quote explains that they had to play the role of the mother and father proving that women are obviously capable of doing what
While I agree with General Dempsey’s view on how to form the Army into a “Profession of Arms,” I don’t think today’s Army is quite there yet. I think The Army is going in the right direction but it will take time to change the culture. We need to understand that it is virtually impossible for all Soldiers to be professionals based on experience and expertise alone. We need to understand that not all Soldiers join today for honor, tradition, and/or wanting to be a part of a team. Soldiers are joining the military more and more to have a secure job with benefits for themselves and their family members.
When the young boys grew to be about age six or seven they were sent to a military school where they were taught the different strategies of war. The girls were taught how to please their men with cooking and cleaning of the household. When the boys grew to men they were sent on a conquest with the army and if they fell in battle it was a great honor but if they returned you returned a man. The Government of both societies was a crucial part of their city-states. The Spartan government was a militaristic style government with two kings.
I realized that my education; given that I was raised in a peaceful society, without threat of war, or starvation, or disease, should have served me much better. Every generation educates the next so that the latter can exceed the limits of their ancestors. But my generation of Americans is the first to show blatant evidence that we have been raised NOT to evolve, but to be lowered by a consumerist
