I believe social studies should be integrated into the school day more. I know that I had a social studies class in elementary school and middle school. I really do not remember them or what was taught in them though. I do not think that schools take it very seriously. I am not saying that the teachers do not, because I specifically remember some of my teachers being very passionate about it. However, I personally do not feel like I was prepared at all going into high school for this subject. I
after years of studying history I feel social studies is not just geography, civics, and history. I do not remember my childhood years of social studies other than studying about white men and the black men they enslaved or the white men who signed the constitution and what great men they were. I always felt the history I learned was one-sided. When I got to junior high school not much had changed. We did begin to learn about a few great black people such as, George

Tittle June 26, 2014 The Journey to Literacy You might have read stories about one’s literacy, when they started to learn reading and writing, what challenges did they face, what opportunities they had, and their extraordinary stories to success. Bill Gates as an example, he had this family as a bridge towards his success. His journey to literacy started when his family sent him to a private school; one of those only schools of the time that had computers. His family fully supported him that made

For the title of my research paper I think I will give a very clear but interesting title I don 't want to make the title very witty or funny because I feel that it could deduct from this significant feature of american history and culture I am thinking of potentially titling the paper “The Bonds of the Confederacy” I hope that my research into the history of confederate war bonds will show that at the time the bonds seemed like a good idea to fund the confederacy but in hindsight the were not
them again. As I have learned in my history courses we can always question the accuracy of a story but we may never fully understand the truth. There have been three important times I have been through that have shaped my understanding of history today, specifically the part of history dealing with slavery and racism.

I had many great experiences as well as some dreadful ones. The experiences from my educational career will mold the teacher I will become in the future. My elementary schools years were spent at Kenter Canyon Elementary. I remember my very first teacher in Kindergarten, Mrs. G, she was very kind to all her students. Her compassion
My Life and My Mother's Life My life compared to my mother's life is in many ways very different and in other ways a lot alike. The differences are there mostly because I was born into a different era. In 1928, my mother's life started out during the end of the Roaring 20's. It was a time of change in America.

Butler who had in his words, “a large number of Negros, many of them are composed in a great measure of women and children who had fled thither within my lines for protection, who had escaped from marauding Rebels who had been gathering up able-bodied blacks to aid them in construction their batteries on the James and York rivers...
