I think this book gives us the opportunity to reflect on our roles in our students’ lives, as a general classroom teacher and how we can best help our students develop into active learners and well-adjusted adults. Paley also made us think about how children’s story and classroom community play a significant role in helping children learn about themselves and
In ancient Greece, Greek mythology was passed through each generation and is an important part of daily life. It was believed that the powerful gods and goddesses were responsible for everything, such as weather, emotions, agriculture, entertainment, and the creation man and Earth. Myths are traditional stories that teach lessons that have been retold many times. which had created multiple versions of each myth. By comparing any two versions, many similarities and differences can be found. There are many similarities and differences between the versions of Phaethon’s myth.
“The Odyssey of Homer” is the tale of Odysseus and his many adventurous encounters on his travel home after twenty years. After the ten-year span of the Trojan War, Odysseus struggles with trying to get home to his wife and new son. The directors of education think “The Odyssey of Homer” shows selfishness, untrustworthy, and unrealistic points to the students. To me this story shows fairness, strong, resourceful, and wise views. This is relevant because it shows the students human values and loyalty. It lets the students get an insight on the Greek culture. Reading the story of Odysseus lets you see the hero, how he is seen by his people and his growth in character.
There is no real desire for learning. A personal example such as this one adds a very tangible element to Pharinet’s argument. Before this example, to the reader she is simply another person writing an article and trying to voice her opinion in whatever way possible; however, after this personal example of her encounter with one of her students, the reader is shown her personal connection with the issue. This realization by the reader adds to the likability of the writer and to the believability of the arguments that she is presenting. The presentation of this personal example also reveals new information about the author.
Ms. Felkins read the Odyssey to the class. Throughout the reading, Ms. Felkins would ask the students questions about the chapter. This was a way for her to see what the students were retaining from the book. The students were engaged and there were only a couple times where Ms. Felkins had to remind the students to be quiet. When she would ask the students questions they were very attentive and eager to answer. Additionally, after reading time, the students worked independently on their biography projects. The students had computers and were researching a person of their choice. Their assignment was to make a poster about that person’s life. As the students were working, Ms. Felkins looked over each student’s poster and helped them make changes if needed. Ms. Felkins reminded the students that they can not directly take information from the internet and put it on their poster. Most of the students handled the corrections they had to make well. There were a few students who got very frustrated by their mistakes and had to fix

The Graeters video relates to what we have learned about business and change by showing us that change within a business is virtually inevitable. As times change and technology becomes more apparent, business must also change or use valuable resources to become more efficient to keep up with, or become more successful than the surrounding competition. Graeters experience with change was a bit different than that of other companies. Before technological innovations brought about the refrigerator and modern ice cream machines ice cream was a delicacy, it was something people couldn’t get every day or whenever they desired. In the times after though, many companies began to mass produce ice cream making thousands of gallons per day. Graeters
Do the choices we make have consequences? People are defined by their choices they make everyday. The choices we make as people define us and can affect our future. People are responsible for their own decisions and the choices they make. People make decisions for instance someone drinking alcohol can affect their health. People can make any decision or choice they want to make but they are not free from the consequences of the choice or decision made.
The two other kids and I would get taken out of class. Getting taken out class, bumped up my popularity just a little bit. I remember the other students looking at me when I got back as if they Odysseus’ men when he got back from finding the lost group. The look was as if there was hope that maybe one day they could leave class every Tuesdays and Thursdays for a hour. As I continued to go on my hour adventures every Tuesday and Thursday, everything started to look like things were going to change. Of course like Odysseus’ men opening the bag of bad winds as they were approaching Ithaca, my progress was taken aback. I fell into the world of reading and eating my

In the videos sports journalist David Zirin spoke about a common myth that sports and politics don’t mix. Zirin likes to point out that sports and politics are so imbedded into each other that we as fans don’t even notice. Sports seem to contradict themselves when there are constant militarism and patriotic acts being taken place at sporting events. Zirin pointed out military appreciation games where those in attendance had the chance to enlist at the game as a place where sports and politics mix. Zirin also speaks about how taking part in the game is often compared to war. The video had a football player speaking about the game he had just played saying it was a war and the other players were out to kill him and he was a soldier. By using these terms in a sports world, fans are exposed to a glamorized war and political terms. This becomes a form of
“The truest characters of ignorance are pride and arrogance. This quote by Samuel Butler is truer than gold in the two greek myths Phaethon and Daedalus and Icarus. The protagonists of both stories boastful,arrogant and prideful natures lead them to their agonizing deaths and downfall. The two myths would be lifeless and stale without the use of of literary elements like conflict,imagery,and and characterization. Conflict shapes the story,Imagery foreshadows and provides color,and characterization develops the characters personalities and behaviors. These elements are how the authors were able to teach the lesson in the theme. The two stories’ main characters, Phaethon and Daedalus and Icarus share the same moral theme of a prideful disregard from those elder and wiser can quickly lead to disastrous consequences,existing thanks to these literary elements.
The topic that I have selected for my research paper is "Aesop's Fables" and the reason for selecting this topic is my interest in the field of literature and importance of storytelling in the life of young school going children in order to develop their intellectual and emotional power. In this paper, I will explore many facts about the lessons any story has in it.
