Theme Studies

A theme study is a method of teaching that allows for elaboration of the topic that one is focusing on. It intrigues the children to want to learn more. One way to look at a theme study is that it is an inquiry-based approach to curriculum through student involvement in research and teaching. The topic must be broad enough to be broken down into smaller parts, and it must be of interest to both the student and the teacher, that way children are motivated to stay involved and it is connected to their learning and curriculum. The child learns by actually experiencing and discovering through different methods and activities, rather than just reading a chapter from a textbook, or watching the teacher write on the board. A theme study takes a topic and “lives” with it for a period of time, integrating science, social studies, language arts, math, and arts. This type of study can range from a small amount of time to taking up the entire school year, because the chosen topics are so capable of expanding upon. A theme study not only teaches a child interesting and new things, but

Global Warming

Human kind has entered a brand new relationship with the earth. The constant and increasing pressures we are exerting threaten our planets ability to sustain life itself. Change-in the way we think , and in the way we live-is needed now.
Global warming is the most urgent environmental problem the world will face in the next decade and the next century. Few, if any, trends are more important to our future than climate change caused by human activities. Scientist around the world are warning us that global warming poses a major threat to our future quality of life, previously there has been little information on this problem. Right now, the rate of global warming may be 100 times faster than it has ever been. Very soon the earth may become hotter then at any time in human history. In the last decades the problems of atmospheric change have been gravely
advanced by pollution resulting from human activities. These environmental changes pose a real threat to the lives of people and wild life.
It is vital to all of us that we fully understand the complex relationship between the atmosphere and the earth.

Bugs Bunny

Bugs Bunny

Over a 36-year span starting in 1930, Warner Bros. studios turned out a series of theatrical cartoons known as Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies. In the process, they let loose some of the greatest directors in the field, who proceeded to create a wild stable of characters and cartoons that were probably the funniest and most frantic ever made. The directors responsible include Friz Freleng, Bob Clampett, Tex Avery, Chuck Jones and Robert McKimson. The immortal characters they created include Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Sylvester and Tweety, Road Runner and Coyote, and many, many more. Having already passed the test of time, these cartoons will be making audiences laugh for generations to come.

Legendary entertainer. Hollywood icon. Wascally wabbit. With his sharp wit and smooth intelligence, Bugs Bunny is one of the worlds most beloved cartoon stars. When not pursuing his love of a good carrot, hes busy displaying his uniquely unflappable nature. Only Bugs Bunny can stare into the face of imminent danger and respond, “Eh, whats up, Doc”

A cartoon character?s height is measured by how many heads tall they are. Bugs bunny is just under 4 heads tal but when you add his ears he?s 5 ?

The Oresteia

The Oresteia

When I began to read the Oresteia, I have to admit I thought it was going to be another boring Greek mythical story. To my amazement the story turned out to have a great moral which also allowed me to relate it to many lessons in life. The following paragraphs are depictions of my own identifying; the consequences for acting without thought, the bitterness of grudges, the need to avenge, and the power of guidance.
The first play of the story is named after the great Agamemnon whose greatness ends up being his downfall. The beginning gives us an overview of the ten year war and the image of Agamemnon?s sacrifice of his daughter. It appalled me to even fathom the idea of a father willing to sacrifice his innocent daughter so that he could to go to war. After I thinking about it I realized that he made a kind-hearted gesture because one lost life can save the lives of many. It is sort of similar to Genesis 19, when Lot offers of group of men his virgin daughters to save the lives of two angels. Both stories show the lack of respect for their daughter as well

Global Warming

Global Warming

Global warming is the warming near the earths surface that results when the earths atmosphere traps the suns heat. The earth is getting warmer. The changes are small, so far, but they are expected to grow and speed up. Within the next fifty to one hundred years, the earth may be hotter than it has been in the past million years. As oceans warm and glaciers melt, land and cities along coasts may be flooded. Heat and drought may cause forests to die and food crops to fail. Global warming will affect weather everywhere, plants and animals everywhere, people everywhere; humans are warming the earths atmosphere by burning fuels, cutting down forest, and by taking part in other activities that release certain heat trapping gases into the air.
One major cause of global warming is the use of fossil fuels. Fossil fuels like coal, oil, and natural gas that were formed from the remains of plant material deposited during the earths carboniferous period. We have known for only a few thousand years that coal, oil, and natural gas can be burned to provide energy. It was not until the mid-1800s, however, that

Kip Kinkel

Kip Kinkel

Kipland Kinkel:
The importance of parenting.
Kipland ?Kip? Kinkel was fifteen years old when his violent ways achieved their climax. On the night of May 24th Kip Kinkel killed both his parents. The next day, he drove his parents? car to school, and opened fire at his schoolmates while they were in the cafeteria. He killed two and wounded another twenty-two before he was brought down by his classmates; this was the outcome of an entire life of deceptions, problems and misunderstanding. Parents should know all the facts in their children?s lives, which may develop into dangerous issues. In this case, Kip?s parents were never able to communicate and understand Kip. They should have paid extremely close attention to every aspect of their son?s life to avoid such an outcome. Bill and Faith (Kip?s parents) are the ones to be blamed in this situation, for they were never able to admit their son needed more help than they thought. Parents should know how their kids think, and how they are living. What kind of things they are interested in, and what is wrong with them. With this knowledge cases like Kip?s could be avoided.

Global Warming

Global Warming

Global warming occurs when the levels of greenhouse gasses rise and less
infrared light, or heat, escapes the earths atmosphere. Thus, the
temperature experienced on Earth begins to rise. Climate change is a part
of the Earths history. There have been dramatic fluctuations in overall
average temperature for the past 150,000 years that suggest a direct
association with carbon dioxide levels. In the past the temperature highs
and lows have been in tandem with carbon dioxide level highs and lows,
this does not seem to be a mere coincidence.

Carbon dioxide currently accounts for 0.03% of the gas content within the
atmosphere. However, it has a disproportionate impact on the earths
temperature. Thus, minor fluctuations in the percentage of atmospheric
carbon dioxide will likely have a significant effect on the global
temperature. The percentage of atmospheric carbon dioxide has risen over
the past century at an alarming rate. Industrial civilization is
essentially driven by fossil fuels such as coal, oil, and gasoline all
major contributors to the raise in carbon dioxide emissions.
Deforestation also releases carbon dioxide via burning and exposing the
soil to sunlight. Also, since trees are a major factor in the natural
processing of carbon dioxide, needing it to make up their mass, when they

BUFFY: THE SUPREME KICKER OF EVIL BUTT AND TELEVISION RATINGS.

The television series ?Buffy the Vampire Slayer?, derived from an early 1990s film by the same name, has given birth to the new figure in popular teen culture: The Slayer. Joss Whedons teen vampire slayer, Buffy, and her band of accomplices are appealing because they operate within the boundaries of our own culture, albeit with our anxieties taking the form of demons. The slayer has become a metaphor for taking control in the all-too-confusing world of Teenage Youth. This essay will explore this theme and how it contributes to the shows popularity on television. In doing so, it will also examine the “Girl Power” wave of the mid-nineties, and its impact on the character of Buffy as part of its larger media impact, as well as Buffys impact on the portrayal of young women on television and beyond. Added to this girl power, is the popular eternal theme used to obvious effect is good conquering evil.

In the past women have been restricted to roles that are considered ?traditional?. Roles associated with traits including emotionality, prudence and compliance, where the males were portrayed through their

Cooperative Learning: Listening to how children work at school

In this study the researchers were seeking to discover the content of the communication that occurred over a period of time that a project was due. The project took place over five weeks. The students were given an assignment to create a ride for a lot that use-to host the Pacific National Exhibition.
Assignment:

The Pacific National Exhibition (PNE) will be closing permanently at
the end of the season. The exhibition has decided to relocate on a
parcel of land in the Fraser Valley. The board of executives is seeking
innovative ideas from the public to help plan their new facility.

Your class has been selected to participate in this unique
opportunity. We would like teams of students to create a new
innovative ride or redesign an existing structure.

Each submission should include research, detailed drawings, and a
simple mechanical model of your design. Please remember that space is
limited and your group will have one half of a table top to present your model.
