Murder And Me
ME The other kids in school used to call me hurtful names like 'killer junior' or 'devil child'. I hated that they did, but they had a good reason to, everyone did, but we'll come to that later. I couldn't defend myself back then, I was just an innocent 6 year old, incapable of any of the sins that 'they' committed. I couldn't run to the teachers because they all knew that what those bullies were saying was true, and so did I. Back then the teachers would beat you blue black just for saying their names wrong, so the only thing stopping them from calling me names as well were their consciences. I knew it was pointless to say anything to anyone because nothing would change the outcome; I always had a little bit of 'them' in me. So I just continued to let it happen, to go on.... to progress. I was on my way home from a usual day at school, walking alone as usual down that same old crumbling alley-way. The floor was stoned paved like any other London road at the time and it seemed to cheer me up after a long day at school, even though something bad happened almost every day that year. This day I was expecting to be ambushed or taken by surprise and have rubbish thrown at me, maybe even be beaten up if I was having a really bad day. It turned out I was having a really bad day. No change there then. Butch and that gang of school bullies were particularly harsh and ruthless in

Ellen - creative writing.
Original Writing Coursework. Ellen Rudford was twenty three years old and lived in a tiny, shabby cottage in the small village of Goldwarren. All she ever wanted in life was to meet the man of her dreams, settle down and have children. So far, her life was not going exactly how she planned it. She always thought she'd make it big as a famous singer, but she never got the chance. Instead she was earning minimum wage working behind the bar at her local pub, and she hated it. The hours were long and the people that came in and went out were horribly unbearable. The men that drank in there were absolute thugs and the women, well they were complete tramps. Ellen wished that it was a much more classier place, where she could meet people and become friends with them, but let's face it, that wasn't going to happen anytime soon and there wasn't a chance in hell that she'd become friends with these greasy people. So every morning she'd wake up at nine o'clock, get ready for work and set off at a quarter to eleven. She would do the same thing at work everyday. She'd get there at eleven in the morning, serve the regulars, clean the glasses and then go home at eleven in the evening. A twelve hour shift was a lot for her to handle, but it's the only money she had coming in. All the poor girl sought was a little change in her daily routine, and one day change is what she got. It was late
should the voting age be lowered
To lower or not to lower the voting age, it is a question I have thought greatly about and I say, I think not! I strongly think that the sixteen year olds of everyday life need not to vote. Sixteen year olds should not have the right to vote because most of us are too immature to even begin to understand who to vote for. If the state argued to put in a Government and Politics class, I guarantee that sixteen year olds would not learn from it. Why? Because more than half the class would fall asleep, be too bored to pay attention, or they just don't care to listen. My American History class proved this. If students can't even pay attention to know how this country was founded, do you honestly think that they care to know that they can vote for the next secretary of state? They probably won't even know what that position is and what it could lead to. Then there is that handful of teenagers who do listen to what the teacher is saying. They are those who do understand how the system works and want to be a part of it. But there is one slight problem; they do not have "experience". The Vietnam War is why eighteen year olds can now vote. In the 1960's, people the ages of 18 or older were drafted into the Vietnam War. When they returned to America, they complained that the right to vote should be allowed to them, for they had served the country. Those that are sixteen have not been
Compare the ways in which the two film openings present their characters and themes, and set up the basis for the story of the whole film.
Compare the ways in which the two film openings present their characters and themes, and set up the basis for the story of the whole film. In the two versions of Romeo and Juliet that we have studied, the directors have had very different styles of production. The main difference is the setting. Luhrmann's version is set in the 21st century, and the characters are identified as modern gang style characters. Zeffirelli's version is much more traditional, set in the original setting and none of the extravagant special effects that we see in Luhrmann's version. The different characters have been portrayed in different styles. Benvolio in Luhrmann's version is wearing a very colourful and bright Hawaiian style shirt, which fits in with the image of the rest of the Montague boys. He drives into the petrol station in a bright yellow car, which creates the impression of confidence. He wears a dog tag which adds to his gang identity. The gold chain and large crystal hanging from it shows that he is reasonably rich. However, this gang image drops a little when you see his hair. It is cut in a kind of uniformed military style. This contrasts with the rest of the Montague boys who all have much more outrageous styles. This tells us that Benvolio's character is more sensible and reformed, and this aspect of his personality is displayed when he tries to prevent the break out of a fight.
child development coursework visit 2
Visit number: 2 Date: 8/11/08 Age of Child: Time: 15:00 People Present: Harris's parents, my mum Aims of the Visit For my second visit I will focus on intellectual development because on my previous visit Harris enjoyed the jigsaw puzzle which is part of intellectual development. As Harris feels quite shy around me I want to do activities that he enjoys so that he can adjust to me. Some of the activities I have planned are; * A Lego activity- will help me observe his intellectual development and see how well he grasps different concepts. I will test his knowledge on different concepts by asking him some simple questions such as "where is the big block", "Which is the yellow block" ECT. I will also see how well he uses his language skills * A reading activity- will help me observe how well his concentration and memory is. This activity will also look at different concepts such as; shape, size and colour. I will ask Harris to point to different objects and see whether he remembers any characters or pictures. * A painting activity- will help me observe his writing skills. I will see what type of grasp Harris uses. As I have received some prior knowledge that Harris does not really enjoy drawing or writing I will conduct a painting activity, because the different coloured paints may excite Harris and he may then want to take it further and start writing in different
The Police Service
The police service Before starting this assignment I evaluated two public services that I was contemplating joining. For this I looked into the police and fire service and concluded that I would prefer to join the police service rather than the fire service. I am now going to look into the police service more in depth, exploring all options and forces that I would wish to join. The police service consists of 43 forces in England and Wales. Each has different roles. There are many ways in to the police a lot of people become special constables before applying or after being turned down by the police as an officer, this allows them the experience they require in situations that may arise in the police application form and the knowledge to deal with the responsibilities of being an officer. Also many people stay on to further education in order to improve there qualifications and fast tract into a higher job within the police service. In order to join the English police force the applicant must be aged eighteen years of age or above, the police prefer older candidates as they have more life experience, they must also be a British, Irish or a commonwealth citizen, they must be deemed of good character, must be physically fit and health and also have a full driving license or be in the process of learning. There are three main parts to the selection process when trying to
Writers Day at Fairfield University On May 2, 2008, I had the wonderful opportunity to attend Writers Day at Fairfield University. The Writers Days was a conference for middle school writers and their teachers. During this conference, I was able to write and share pieces with my peers in different genres and styles. When I arrived at the Dolan School of Business, I registered with Mrs. Greenfield and found out what workshops I would be attending. I chose to attend Lyrics and Fiction. After registering, I had a light breakfast. At 9:00, there was a keynote speaker: Patricia Reilly Giff. Mrs. Giff is an author and teacher. Some of the books and series she has written include the following: Polk Street School Series, Lily's Crossing, All The Way Home, Pictures of Hollis Woods, and Nory Ryan's Song. Mrs. Giff shared some inside into her writing technique and shared with us how she gets her inspiration. I enjoyed listening to Mrs. Giff speak. First, I am a fan of her writing. I have read Pictures of Hollis Woods and Lily's Crossing. I enjoyed them very much because of their deeper meaning underneath the storyline. I also thought it was very cool to listen to Mrs. Giff talking about her struggle to publish her books and never to give up on something that you believe deeply in. My first workshop of the day was Lyrics. During the workshop, the class discussed why
Citizenship For my Citizenship coursework I will be raising money for the Asian earthquake appeal by doing a sponsored fast. I aim to raise as much money as possible for the Asian earthquake appeal.
Citizenship Coursework Stage 1 - Plan For my Citizenship coursework I will be raising money for the Asian earthquake appeal by doing a sponsored fast. I aim to raise as much money as possible for the Asian earthquake appeal. I will be working along side a friend of mine; Louis Baxter. By working with Louis I feel the fast will be easier, as I will have someone to share the difficulties of the fast with, and we will be able to help each other through it. I know Louis from my form at school, this makes it easy for us to converse and organise the activity. The only difficulty that working with Louis poses, is that being without food for a day may make us both very stressed, which could lead to us arguing and becoming annoyed with each other. During the planning stage we discussed various different activities that we could do. One such activity was to put on an after school football training session for primary school children in order to give them an enjoyable after school club as this was something that both me and Louis enjoyed while we were at primary school. We decided against this though, as we felt that we could do something that is focused on helping those that need it most. While we were discussing what activity to do, the Asian earthquake took place. The earthquake measured 7.6 on the Richter scale and decimated parts of northern Pakistan and northern India. The
