As noted by Martin Chalmers "Preface" to Klemperer's journals of the period entitled I Will Bear Witness, "Observance and the Reform Synagogue" that Klemperer attended as a child "was extremely liberal" and entailed no dietary restrictions; no bar mitzvah, and in contrast to Reform Judaism today, it was regarded as a "halfway house" between conversion to Protestantism and Judaism.

Klemperer's area of academic interest was Voltaire, not anything pertaining to Jewish theology. Thus, his life experience is particularly illustrative of the extent…… [Read More].

Nazis decided to commit genocide. Was this always Hitler's intention from the beginning? If not, why and when did it change? If so, why the various policy changes? Please illustrate your answer with specific historical examples.

While the process of killing a lot of people in a dedicated and concentrated fashion might seem easy enough, that was far from being the case. One method that was ruled out right away was the use of bullets due to the cost and time involved.

There was also deemed to be a toll on the soldiers committing the killing. In terms of process, the Nazis went so far as to actually engage in tests. For example, they tested using carbon monoxide and cyanide gas.

The early "guinea pigs" were Russian prisoners and mental patients. Expulsion was considered as well but the expansion of the country made this a hard sell because invading other…… [Read More].

The main characters include Count Dracula and a small group of men and women led by Dr. Count Dracula is the antagonist character of the novel, and is a vampire.

The group of men and women led by Dr. Van Helsing are the main protagonist characters. The novel talks about Count Dracula's endeavor to relocate from Transylvania to England, and his demise. The story begins with an English lawyer, Jonathan Harker, visiting Dracula's castle to assist him with some real estate issues. During his stay in the castle, Harker discovers that the Count is a vampire and barely escapes with his life.

Then the narrative turns into…… [Read More]. Lumen and Absorb Team Case Study at. They are both vital to the development of products, but they are also different in their creativity and motivation. The Lumen team is very highly motivated, while the Absorb team has the lowest motivation out of all five of the groups that Burke oversees. Naturally, this was a serious concern for Burke and for others at Crutchfield. Since there has been a recent restructuring and a large round of layoffs, some of the current thinking is that the employees are not comfortable and do not feel safe in their jobs.

However, all of the team members that are currently working at Crutchfield in the teams experienced the same things, so it seems odd that one team would be excelling while other teams - most notably the Absorb team - are floundering.

Overall, it is this…… [Read More]. Midwife's Tale by Laurel Thatcher Ulrich and. Specifically, it will show how these individuals lived in very different social and cultural worlds, including Ballad's private world and Douglass' very public world, but it will also show they had more in common than it might seem.

Martha Ballard grew up in New England, surrounded by her family. She was born in , and died in She witnessed the American Revolution, and helped at the birth of over children.

Interrupted Life and Letters from Westerbork Throughout my academic career, I avoided dealing with the monumental human tragedy known as the Holocaust. History classes required that I read sterile, chronicled information, learn names and dates, and understand the causes and results.

History classes have never required that I read a first-hand account of the horrors of a Jewish woman in this inhuman and appalling era and reflect upon it. As I read, there were moments that I had to put the book aside and get my mind on something else. It is inconceivable that such suffering and carnage was accepted, supported, or denied by the people of the world.

I was sometimes nauseous and sometimes tearful. However, along with the misery and bloodshed of the Holocaust, Etty Hillesum is able to convey a joy in living, appreciation for the moment, and love of humanity in her book An Interrupted Life…… [Read More]. Bright Light The Story of. As Nick grows older, his symptoms grow worse, and he becomes more and more depressed, even when times are "good.

Nick's brain did not see things the way others do, and he was like a confused child in many ways. Lithium helped the disease, which is also common, but it constantly has to be controlled, and so Nick endured highs and lows as the medication altered. He simply could not contend with the lows. The book very accurately portrays the life of a manic-depressive. It is clear to see how difficult it was for Nick, in the middle of it.

It is also an accurate depiction of the progression of the disease, and how it affects everyone, from friends to family, and how difficult a disease it is to successfully treat. Steel clearly indicates how difficult it is to live with this illness,…… [Read More]. Trade Books in a Specific Curriculum In the book give title, author's name discusses the potential advantages and difficulties of using textbooks and trade books in a specific curriculum.

Though the use of such books can cause problems in terms of student learning, there are also many ways to integrate the use of text and trade books into specific curriculums. The key lies in the way the teacher integrates the material into their thematic study curriculums. This paper looks at two examples of the use of textbooks in specific curriculums.

In the first article, Jean Ciborowski argues that too many students have difficulty comprehending information that is in their textbooks. Among the reasons Ciborowski cites are unduly difficult textbooks and uninspired teacher's editions.

Meanwhile, in the second article, Peter Afflerbach and Bruce VanSledright examine a case where an innovative history text enhances the learning of history in middle school classrooms. Mary Boykin Chesnut Mary Boykin Chesnut was born in , into the aristocracy of South Carolina, had all the privileges of wealth and power - including the benefit of an education at an exclusive boarding school in Charleston - and married into another very prominent family in South Carolina.

She lived on a plantation with numerous black slaves, which was fairly typical for wealthy people during that period. What was not typical of wealthy people during those times was the fact that her circle of friends was political and social heavyweights - after all, her husband was a…… [Read More].

It should be a must read for any American student, to find out just how important an integrated education was to those who were banned from it.

Today we take this type of education for granted, but in , these nine students had to fight hard to achieve it. There are several themes and ideas in this work.

First, the author shows that these warriors have survived and thrived since their years at Little ock's Central High. She shows how the experience brought them together and made such a difference in…… [Read More]. Playwright as Rock Star Art. It was also during this time that he started keeping a diary.

The entry for that day is very relevant as to our attempt to understand what drove Orton to join the theater in hopes of an acting career.

During the time he spent with the amateur theater company, Orton decided that he wanted to pursue a career in acting, and that his first step towards achieving this goal was to go to the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art: Joe Orton Online He quit the amateur acting company after his first role because he was not offered any other substantial roles. Although he got accepted into the Royal Academy…… [Read More].

Helping adolescent mothers to achieve in school: An evaluation of the taking charge group intervention. It uses a quasi-experimental design with a pre and post test for both the comparison group and treatment group, which is a quantitative design.

Participants were all pregnant or parenting adolescent females. For ethical reasons, adolescents were not denied access to the initiative, rather, adolescents self-selected their involvement in the initiative. Those who chose to participate populated the treatment group and those who chose not to participate populated the comparison group. The intervention at the Taking Charge Initiative is heavily based in theory. Social Learning Theory is the overarching theory that dictates the actions and workings of the intervention.

The Life of Ida B. Wells by Linda O. Specifically it will contain a critical review of the book. Wells was a black activist who came of age after the Civil War in the American South. She was influential, perhaps one of the most influential black women in American history.

The author wanted to portray her history so people would have a greater understanding of what she did and who she was, and she did that admirably.

She included great detail as to how Wells accomplished her goals and brought attention to many occurrences in the South, but she also focused on many items of Wells life that really had nothing to do with her many accomplishments. The ultimate goal of Ida Wells' activist work was to bring attention to the practice of lynching of blacks in the South.

Wells was orphaned at the age…… [Read More]. Inclusion for Children With Autism. There is a growing body of support that indicates that while inclusion may be the best answer for mildly autistic children, it may not be the best setting for those with moderate to severe autism. Until now, research into the autistic child in the classroom has focused on taking the position of either for or against inclusion in the general classroom.

However, when one takes the body of literature as a whole, it appears that inclusion is good for some and bad for others. This leads to the logical conclusion that differences exist between children who are successful under inclusion and those that are not. Understanding these differences is the key to taking the proper action for an individual. Literature regarding autism and inclusion missed the important point that in order to make the program a success, we must decode the keys to success.

One of these keys lies in…… [Read More]. Woolf Women in Violence and War. The author has discussed how Woolf comes and goes in time and space to reveal her inside feelings, and why she used them especially in time of war and domestic violence.

Much has been written about Woolf's use of the stream-of-consciousness technique used widely by other Modernist writers of her time such as DH Lawrance and James Joyce. Stream of Consciousness is the technique use by Woolf and she is considered the pioneer of this technique. Argumentation In a diary entry that Woolf wrote on the 23 of February in , she compares the writing process she went through while writing Mrs. Dalloway with the process she experienced while writing…… [Read More].

Scott Anne F The Southern. But women were members of voting organizations, just like Northern women, writes Scott -- even if they attended in white gloves. While Scott's work is valuable in that it chronicles the lives of many influential Southern women, whose voices would otherwise be lost to history, certain aspects of her thesis seem contradictory.

She is eager to stress Sothern women's strength, but some of the diaries she quotes chronicle the voices of girls constantly felt pressured repress their opinions to maintain marital bliss. In her conclusion, she speaks of Harriet Simmons, whom she saw as an example of how women of high social standing could "get away with being radical" Scott But the fact that women were forced to 'get away' with being radicals, rather than openly espousing such an ideal is telling of the oppression still felt by many Sothern women.

While it is true that the reality of…… [Read More].

Size Zero Debate the Size. Archer's experience traveling down the size ladder from as she tried on dresses in a boutique for her sister's wedding was only one of several experiences she noted as troubling for her at her natural size, which she notes ahs remained much the same all her life, yet she is also quick to point out that no one should advocate for attainment of the size zero as a key to happiness or that only skinny is beautiful.

Robertson 22 Archer responds as any person would when her very being is attacked and yet she also makes clear that she does not believe it's a good idea for people to believe that only her body type is beautiful or for the fashion or any industry to promote this idea. In addition to this, anecdotal description of the struggles of actually being a size zero naturally some retailers are beginning to…… [Read More].

Gemma Bovary Analysis and Discussion. Also, the use of the French language by the characters in a different type shows how the English regard French and France as exotic, in contrast of course, to Flaubert's own provincial French characters. The culture clash between French and English language and culture is a running theme in the novel.

The use of different fonts also allows for far more text on the page than is typical of most graphic novels. This befits the subject, given that it is a literary satire, and a satire of how art affects life. For example, in one dinner party, Gemma is distracted, ignoring what other characters are saying, and thinking about her lover in a similarly distracted state thinking about Gemma.

This is shown by depicting thought balloon within thought balloon ad infinitum. Age of Tolstoy and Dostoevsky. Compare and contrast their approaches to the question of faith. One of the features of the age of Tolstoy and Dostoevsky was the emergence of philosophical and religious thoughts that promoted spirituality without religion.

The tendency to reject organized religion in favor of personal spirituality or a direct relationship with God gained prominence at this age in ussia because of widespread disillusionment with the state-supported religion, corruption and hypocrisy of the official clergy.

None perhaps popularized such spirituality in ussia more than Tolstoy and Dostoevsky. Both of these figures had a complicated relationship with the official Orthodox Christianity. Tolstoy was excommunicated by the Holy Synod of the ussian Patriarch in But while Dostoevsky's criticism of organized religion remained subtle and he emphasized the importance of faith, Tolstoy was scathing in his attacks on ussian Orthodox religion and at times he directly questioned the existence of God.

Tolstoy was a…… [Read More]. Importance of the Slave Dancer Book. How to teach the book, how to teach about slavery, race, and ethics The Slave Dancer by Paula Fox, viewed from the eyes of a student, is an adventure tale with a young protagonist who can be easily identified with, in the eyes of a young reader.

Plot wise, the book tells the story of a young, thirteen-year-old boy in , when the American slave trade was still legal. The boy, Jessie Bollier, has recently lost his father. He makes money for his family by playing his fife on the docks of New Orleans. Suddenly, one day, he finds himself on board a ship called "The Moonlight.

Donner Party in Truckee California. Never mind that most of the group members were not Donners; or that the family itself camped about six miles away from most of the other families; or that the chosen route that had led to the party's despair was not selected by the Donners, but by James F.

Reed, who, coincidentally, survived the tragedy. Cannibalism accepted as fact For a century and a half, the American public has essentially labeled the Donner Party, and, by extension the Donner family, as cannibals. The sensationalized media reports that first emerged after the rescue of the Donner Party became widely accepted with time, although they were based mostly on unreliable first-person reports and gossip Donner cannibalism, In fact, Eliza Poor Donner Houghton, a member of the party, recalls how Donner Party members would read supposed first-person accounts in newspapers and become shocked with how remarkably accurate information was interspersed with wild…… [Read More].

Russian History it Will Discuss. They were wrong about the Bolshevik's giving in to their demands, however. The Bolshevik's attacked the city located on an island , under cover of darkness. They wore white uniforms to blend in with the snow and ice surrounding the city. The workers tried to defend themselves and their families, but the Bolshevik's sent in 50, troops. They began their attack on March 7, and the sailors and workers defended the Kronstadt fortress for ten days before they fell.

When the Bolshevik's took Kronstadt sailors as prisoners, they later took them into the forests and executed them. Kronstadt was the last rebellion against the…… [Read More]. How, hypothetically, justify weight? Here topic I picked: The relationship between nature and the natural world in Traditional Japanese literature Nature has often been considered to represent one of the most important sources of inspiration for national cultural heritage throughout the world.

It is present in some of the world's most impressive past civilizations as well as part of the most modern cultures nowadays. From the perspective of the Japanese culture, nature has been the constant source of inspiration in many areas, from ceramics to crafting, to literature. Japanese literature is from this point-of-view one of the most important cultural expressions in terms of dealing with nature as a source of inspiration.

This can largely be resulted from a clear affection for nature from a religious as well as historical point-of-view. At the same time…… [Read More]. Unexpected Temporal Situational and Attributive Dimensions of. The data collection procedure for the earlier study was based on interviews of volunteer participants.

Even when relaxing, media is something that drives the process. There is also a lot of passive consumption of media in my daily life. My media consumption will be analyzed through the lens of different media theories. Turow Turow argues that media and advertisers have become exceptionally adept since the s at understanding audiences, their consumption patterns, and how to exploit these.

For our part as audience, we have much less understanding of our own consumption patterns. This exercise was the first time that I had really given thought to my daily media exposure, only to realize that my use of media is constant, throughout the day, and sometimes very passive. I used media forms as…… [Read More]. History and Illustrated Reality of the Restoration Period.

Samuel Pepys's Diary tells us a great deal about the author himself and even more about the times in which he lived. But despite the fact that this book is a marvelous window into the 17th century, it is also a marvelous window into the 21st century as well, for Pepys's observations about human nature and the ways in which cities have their own life remain strikingly trenchant in today's world as well.

As Coote tells us, Pepys came from a relatively humble background -- his father has worked as a tailor. But Pepys's own skills an talents had allowed him to acquire as a patron the earl of Sandwich, Sir Edward Montagu. Because of this connection, Pepys was able to meet and to observe many of the most important men in England during his generation, and his comments on them in his diary help us to understand not…… [Read More].

Mr Henshaw a Number of. Leigh uses the knowledge he has gained through reading to make an alarm for his lunch box an endeavor his mother comes to support, as well as his new friend Barry and finally wins honorable mention in a story contest.

The fact that Leigh chooses to do all of these things with occasional prompting makes the young reader more likely to feel enthusiastic about reading him or herself. Cleary's humorous examples at the beginning of the book of the resistance to reading and writing on the part of students being given 'assignments' to write book reports or write to their favorite authors shows that she knows that young readers need to discover reading for themselves, and adults cannot compel them to love reading by force.

Question 4 Leigh's parents are lower-middle class and divorced. Leigh and his mother live in a mobile home, and Leigh's father is a…… [Read More]. Robert Ode- What Life Was. Ode noted a change in food provisions at this time. The restrictions on the hostages communicating with one another seemed to loosen as well, and Ode describes socializing with fellow hostages by playing chess.

However, he also describes escalating brutality towards hostages who are not compliant, especially a hostage named done. In fact, during the third phase of captivity, some of the students began to treat Ode in a different manner. They complained that he was opinionated and that he was always complaining. Actually, it was surprising to see how vocal Ode had remained throughout his ordeal, and how few repercussions he received for that vocal behavior.

Carter was able to secure the safe return of the hostages, without the loss of a single hostage life, though American military men did die in a rescue attempt. However, the hostage crises probably tipped the election in favor of eagan, which…… [Read More]. Many adult readers disagree with the portrayed unreality of Dahl's books because in life everything is not fair, and good does not always win.

Even when the hero of the Witches is permanently turned into a mouse, the reader is assured by the main character that, "I honestly don't feel especially bad about it. I don't even feel angry. In fact, I feel rather good" This lack of remorse is typical of Dahl's stories. Similarly, many do not like Dahl's concept that virtue and poverty go together, such as with Miss Honey, Matilda's adored teacher.

Some find this objectionable because it is a view consistent with Marxist philosophy, not one that supports free market capitalism. Further criticism arises from Dahl's portrayal of adults, which many believe has a negative impact on the young readers.

Throughout his work, authoritarian adults are often the victims of horrible revenge. However, what some find…… [Read More].
