(Frohlich… 2013, p6) Phonological awareness is sensitivity to the sound structure of language.

Whereas education during Jefferson’s era was, voluntary and he believed in teaching everyone the basics. Additionally, Jefferson believed that students in the elementary schools should read enough history “by appraising them of the past, will enable them to judge the future; it will avail them of the experience of other times and other nations; it will qualify them as judges of the actions and designs of men…”(S&S pg. 40). Whereas in today’s practice, elementary students receive about forty-five minutes of history a month until they enter 5th or 6th grade. In chapter three, the Quality of Teachers according to Horace Mann “the education and the quality of the state’s teachers was the inadequate preparation most teachers had received” (S&S pg.

Around 250,000 copies of The Catcher in the Rye are still sold each year with total sales of more than 65 million books. My name is Daniel Porter and today I’d like to present my opinion as to why classic literature should be retained in the curriculum of senior English students. Classic novels provide the reader with opportunities to explore moral dilemmas within society and reflect on our own personal experiences. They raise an awareness of controversial issues sometimes not up for discussion, such as mental illness. Classic novels are well written and provide readers with exposure to language not heard in our everyday lives.
The Founding Fathers, the George Washington’s, Thomas Jefferson’s, and many others that signed our Declaration of Independence, those who wrote the Constitution as it sits today. In the past twenty years Constitutional scholars and political historians have put together thousands of writing from 1760-1805. In these writings they counted 3,154 citations where the most frequently quoted book was the Bible. Until 1963 Bibles were distributed in schools for our children, now when a child brings a Bible to school, there have been instances where they are told to
These principles have been brought up before in the past because there have been studies done that address key components of this topic that have to do with holistic grading and context effects of grading essays. Some researchers have had such interest in this subject that they did their own research and came up with findings themselves. Hughes and Keeling (1984) had twenty-five intermediate high school teachers grade essays written by thirteen and fourteen year olds on their hopes and aspirations for the future. These teachers have had at least five years experience with this age group. Hughes and Keeling wanted to know if having a model essay to refer to while scoring essays would help reduce context effects.
