I am currently a graduate student working towards a certificate and Masters in Special Education. One of the biggest pushes in our program is to ensure that we are doing the things necessary within the classroom to become a critical transformative multicultural educator. Through my studies and observational experiences, I believe there is no better way to prepare studenst for the real world than connecting them to current events. It can often be comfotable to keep students in a world within the walls of the classroom. Yet, in doing so students only adapt to only being able to staticly think about the environments they are exposed to. Through these amazing and creative ways students can evolve their thought processes and become dynamic learners interest in the how the world around them works. It is through current events that we as educators can empower our students to become advocates for their own lives. Thanks so much for sharing and could not agree more with message.
Longer essays may also contain an introductory page that defines words and phrases of the essay's topic. Most academic institutions require that all substantial facts, quotations, and other porting material in an essay be referenced in a bibliography or works cited page at the end of the text. This scholarly convention helps others (whether teachers or fellow scholars) to understand the basis of facts and quotations the author uses to support the essay's argument and helps readers evaluate to what extent the argument is supported by evidence, and to evaluate the quality of that evidence. The academic essay tests the student's ability to present their thoughts in an organized way and is designed to test their intellectual capabilities.
"Self-Proclaimed Sleepwalker Found Guilty of Murder" announces the Yahoo! News on Friday, June 25, 2004. A murderer stated that he was walking in his sleep when he killed someone by stabbing a guy and beating the girlfriend to death was convicted of first-degree murder. I have a sister who walks in her sleep. In fact, she even eats in her sleep and does not remember it the next day but I think it goes a little far to believe that a man walking in his sleep could stab a person or even beat up someone. The district attorney did not doubt the person might have a sleeping disorder but he would not believe that someone could kill another person while sleeping. Personally, this seems to be going to far to get out of the charges against the murderer. While many people do have sleep disorders and I even know a person who walks and talks in her sleep, but a person committing murder during their sleep. No way!
