By the time Bearing is a well-known professor, it’s apparent that wit and intellect are the most important aspects of her life. During her days of lecturing, Bearing is blunt and unsympathetic. She does not teach to help her students grow in literature but to showcase her own profound knowledge of John Donne’s poetry. She comes to this realization through Jason’s unsympathetic manner of operation. After Bearing is diagnosed with cancer early in the play, she has a
This essay will argue that Huttmann made a wise decision and did not commit a crime. She made a very difficult decision to free Mac of his misery and live with a peaceful conscience. During the 80's euthanasia was not a common procedure for hospitals. There are patients like Mac who are very ill and transformed from a strong, young person in to a skeleton trapped in a hospital bed. When people are very sick and have to lay in bed for months without showing a bit of progress, as in the majority of the cancer cases, they are in agony.“The Doctor believed that life must be extended as long they have the means and knowledge to do it” (Huttmann 114).
She was informed of an induction to deliver her baby as the standard operation procedure. The induction though risky to be done before week 39, was still necessary since the baby was not growing normally. However, the osmium did not dilate wide as expected and she did not feel much labor pain for a successful natural delivery. Later, at around 5pm of the same day, she managed to have a dilation of only 3cm and her membrane ruptured, and her amniotic fluid lost for 6 hours. When the fetal heart rate decreased (Bradycardia), fetal distress was noted, and an emergency caesarean was initiated.
Critics say that the main focus of Educating Rita is the English class system and the clash of cultures, however there are many other themes portrayed in the play that are of equal importance. As the title would suggest, one of the key themes in Educating Rita is indeed education. Rita strives to become educated after taking school for granted before. Frank asks her “what do you want to know?” and Rita replies “everything” showing her thirst for knowledge and her enthusiasm to learn. However, when Rita first meets Frank she is a working class, pop cultured hairdresser who knows nothing of English Literature, shown when asking Frank “what is assonance?” But, through education she learns more than just literature, which she exposes when, at the end, she reveals she can make her own choices, “I’ll make a decision.” This displays how education has a huge impact on both Rita and the play, making it a very important theme in the play.
Later, though, after the student has cheated, there is a sense of ease and resolution to the situation, and this weakens her argument, making the issue of cheating seem almost irrelevant or benign. The reader also notices Wenke’s use of the personal pronoun “you” throughout the scenario in the first paragraph, suggesting that she is aiming the argument at high school and college students. It’s evident that the tone of this piece shifts, but the author begins with a quizzical tone and asks many questions throughout her argument. “If my parents’ generation had such high morals and wouldn’t cheat, wouldn’t they teach their children the same?” (Wenke, Page 1) She then moves to a more contemplative tone in the latter part of the piece, explaining the possible effects of cheating on our society today. She points out that “this attitude will not stop in the classroom, but will carry on into the business world… [the students who cheat] are in turn the ones who will
She is the most caring and giving woman you could ever meet. This is all why facing the fact that I could possibly loose her so soon was a very scary time in my life. It was a couple years ago, I was about ten or eleven, maybe younger, young enough for my mother to keep my brother and I in the dark about the whole matter until it was almost over. My grandmother was going to the doctors a lot, I thought nothing of it because it was normal with her asthma and other medical conditions. What wasn’t normal was that she was sad, very sad.
After viewing my performance I was able to constructively criticise my teaching methods and noted the following: * During my routine I leant my upper body forward as I thought it allowed me to get closer to the participants; however after viewing, I quickly realised it made me look constipated and certainly was not good for my posture. I plan to improve this by NOT leaning forward and maintaining great form throughout the class. I will also use more verbal and non-verbal cues and loads of positive energy to connect and feel closer to the participants. * I tended to use the same words over and over which got really boring really quickly. To improve this, I will broaden my aerobic instructing vocabulary, and make sure my word choices are relatable to both the exercise and participants.
Jane and Helen have very different relationships with adults. On the one hand Jane is quite stubborn around them and doesn’t want to show her emotions, but on the inside she wants to be good so that she doesn’t get the “Miss Reed” scenario where she is being practically bullied. On the other hand Helen has a good relationship with the teachers, although if Helen does do something wrong then she gets severely punished. When Helen is in the teachers “good books” as such then she gets on well at school being the top of the
This form of education also allows Jane to explore her imagination. At Gateshead, Jane is constrained by the form of education afflicted upon her by the Reed’s, she is educated to be humble and obedient, this is illustrated through her subservient character, “silence! This violence is all most repulsive.” By Mrs Reed telling Jane to “silence”, conveys that her aunt wants Jane to know her dependency, inferior status, and her little rights. The Reed family use hegemonic control upon Jane, to educate her to be submissive. This informal form of education places constraints upon Jane, as the authority of her aunt and cousins restricts her.
Then, Mrs.Levias likes focus on colleagues and students. She always uses feeling and thinks about impact that could happen to the people she cares about. She likes harmony. You can see from the movie in the scene that she disagree with Mr.Clark's methods that always blame everyone whatever they do and she doesn’t like his order that fires one teacher and suspends another for clashing with him in front of the students. She cares about their feeling that those teacher work with school for long time.
