African American students are generally most successful in a less formal, experience-driven learning environment. They tend to prefer cooperative learning and a social atmosphere. The attention span for African American students has been shown to be shorter than other those from other cultures, so shorter, more concise lessons benefit them.

Family dynamic and Education. There are multiple generations who are living in the Twin River housing. We need to stress the importance of education and empire the younger generation to be more self-reliant to be able to break the cycle. Although children are going to school, it is at home and the surrounding neighborhood that also teaches life lessons. Being isolated and surrounded by homeless, drugs, and gang members will promote bad behaviors and violence that the children may learn from watching. Parents are sometimes helpless not being able to shield their children from the harsh reality. Children acting out in school from learned behavior at home or around the neighborhood may cause them to be in trouble with the law or drop out of school. This isolated community will soon have a new life. The socialization of different class will have a great benefit to the younger generations overall wellbeing and health. According to Healthy People 2020, “For a community to improve its health, its members must often change

Your two, are a part of what make my bad days better, and my good days even better.

My family history has influenced who I am today due to the fact that I have descended from a long line of artistic people.

With a variety of cultures comes an unlimited array of life experiences which include similarities and differences between all groups of people. It is important to learn of another person’s experiences which will help expand our understanding of the world we live in. In order to get this understanding, I chose to interview a woman named Isabella who comes from a family that originated outside the United States. When her mother was still a child, she made her way from Mexico to the United States with her family in search of better opportunities. Her father was born in Spain and met her mother when visiting in the United States. Growing up in a home with two separate cultures helped Isabella become a well-rounded person and accepting of other
Beloved Family! It has been a joy partaking together for this 21 Days of Consecration. My heart rejoices over the personal testimonies received from many of you resulting from this 21 Days of Consecration. WOW! You may ask, what now? What's next?

Hold dear and near everything that Holy Spirit has spoken and revealed to you during this time. Godly habits that were strengthened or
