Main Topic -
You will find information about the main topic in the textbook or materials listed.

Disability - what does this term mean and how should it be used?
Disability should only be used for someone who has a mental illness that stops them or makes it difficult for this person to learn.

Handicap is for people who have physical disabilities but is because of an accident that has made them that way.

Prevalence is basically just a percentage of students who are in special education classes throughout the years.

Special Education is something that is very important for our society, it helps people who have a difficult time learning, or as simple as how to function in their life. This is a life changing class for these people.

Inclusion from what I understand is combining students with mental illnesses with students who do not.

Education for handicapped is important because it gives them the opportunities they deserve.

ADA is the organization that helps put together all of the activities for people with disabilities to participate in.
What information in this chapter is new to you? Share at least 2 points.
I had never heard of ADA
I also did not know what the word inclusion meant.

Special Education is not easy, you have to really love it to be able to become a teacher.

Pitfalls Of RelativismPitfalls of Relativism The year was 1943. Hundreds of Jewish people were being marched into the gas chambers in accordance with Adolf Hitler's orders. In the two years that followed, millions of Jews were killed and only a fraction survived the painful ordeals at the Nazi German prison camps. However, all of the chaos ended as World War II came to a close: the American and British soldiers had won and Hitler's Third Reich was no more. A certain ethical position would state that the anti-sematic

Perhaps Maya Angelou, award winning author of many books is one of the most influential African Americans in American history.

Analysis Of The HolocaustAnalysis of the Holocaust Of all the examples of injustice against humanity in history, the Jewish Holocaust has to be one of the most prominent. In the period of 1933 to 1945, the Nazis waged a vicious war against Jews and other lesser races. This war came to a head with the Final Solution in 1938. One of the end results of the Final Solution was the horrible concentration and death camps of Germany, Poland, and other parts of Nazi-controlled Europe. In the aftermath of the Holocaust, peopl

Race Relations In The U.S.Race Relations in the U.S. I've discovered the real roots of America these past few days and decided that writing about it was better than killing an innocent victim to soothe the hostility I feel towards my heritage. I picked up a pen because it was safer than a gun. This was a valuable lesson I've learned from my forefathers, who did both. Others in my country react on instinct and choose not to deliberate the issue as I have. If they are black, they are imprisoned or dead. As The People vs. S
SlaverySlavery Slavery in America stems well back to when the new world was first discovered and was led by the country to start the African Slave Trade- Portugal. The African Slave Trade was first exploited for plantations in that is now called the Caribbean, and eventually reached the southern coasts of America (Slavery Two; Milton Meltzer). The African natives were of all ages and sexes. Women usually worked in the homes, cooking and cleaning, whereas men were sent out into the plantations to farm.
First And Second ReconstructionsFirst and Second Reconstructions The First and Second Reconstructions held out the great promise of rectifying racial injustices in America.

Do Not Judge A Book By Its Cover Do Not Judge a Book by Its Cover We as teenagers are often defined as shallow, naive, and sometimes uncompassionate youngsters. Most of this recognition comes from our common failure to take social risks and possess an open mind. We are all one student body, yet we are so separated in many aspects. Much of the segregation exists because we are unable to look past appearances. What gives designer clothes, thick lensed glasses, or different hairstyles the authority to determine if we are people w

Slavery Reparations Are WrongSlavery Reparations Are Wrong Ladies and gentlemen; I don't believe that anyone in this chamber would move to disagree with the idea that slavery was an atrocity, committed from the depths of the darkest parts of the human sole. Africans were seized from their native land, and sold into lives of servitude into a foreign land. Indeed, it was a tragedy on such a scale that cannot be measured nor quantified. And it is this very notion of unquantifiable tragedy which speaks to the matter of reparati
The 1960?s The 1960?s Luke Laubaugh 3-11-99 research paper rough draft The 1960?s was a decade that forever changed the culture and society of America. The 1960?s were widely known as the decade of peace and love, not because the world had become a utopia but, in my opinion, because of the heavy use of the popular hallucinogenic drugs by the American youth. In reality minorities were struggling to gain freedom from segregation and thousands of American soldiers and Vietnamese civilians were being killed i
Affirmative ActionAffirmative Action Thesis: Although many people believe that affirmative Action is a form of racism, it is actually used to help minorities find employment in an otherwise racist world. ?In the United States, equality is a recurring theme. It has flared into a fervent moral issue at crucial stages of American history: The revolutionary and Jacksonian Period, and the New Deal. In each era, the legitimacy of American society is challenged by some set of people unhappy with the degree of equality?

According to Richard Sennett (1974), public experience outside the private sphere of the home became an obligation for the self-development of men.
