    Becoming an effective early childhood teacher

    Teachers also help children understand themselves thereby promoting high self-esteem. An effective teacher is someone who can do all this and more. Building relationships with your students is a necessity for effective learning. A child needs a role model, someone that shows they care. "The single most effective factor in helping young people feel more mature, confident, informed and respectful of cultures, social and sexual difference is the quality of the relationship they have with their teacher" (Blake, Bird, & Gerlach, 2007). Trust is fundamental especially in the early years.

It has been tradition for at least three generations.

  15. Writer's Notebook

    Dante would have put him in circle 7, which was about violent people. In Dante's Inferno, the circle 7 has three rings/categories-violence against Neighbors, violence against Self, and violence against God. Hussein definitely fits in the two of the three rings. The first ring which is violence against neighbors includes murderers and robbers. Hussein, without a doubt, fits in here very well. Hussein suits this circle because he was a killer of mass proportions, or as Dante would've called him a 'satan himself in disguise.'

  20. Character of Achilles in iliad

    We might compare Achilles with Antigone or Socrates, who, in their readiness to die in pursuit of their goals, are very much in his mold. Achilles, the greatest of the Achaeans, towers above all the other characters of the Iliad (see King 1987.2-3). He is the handsomest, swiftest, and strongest; his beautiful and powerful youth (only Diomedes and Antilochus are so young) is like that of the gods. But, though the son of the goddess Thetis, he is not himself a god; he is a mortal who can be fatally wounded.
