Transcript: Why Don't we speak English at School? Modern English, sometimes described as the first global lingua franca,is the dominant language or in some instances even the required international language of communications, science, information technIology, business,entertainment, radio, diplomacy etc... English language is important because it is spoken throughout the world.In every country,schools teach their children english because the teachers know that it can be useful for the children in their life. Instrument Used: Survey(Multiple Choice) Population: 5Th Grade: 26 students 6Th Grade: 25 students 7Th Grade: 21 Students In our own opinion,we honestly think,from a student's persepective, that students don't value or pay attention when an authority correct them or suggest to speak english when they are at school. We believe that if pressure is applied,that would help a lot. Probably because sometimes students do't feel the pressure or the necessity to speak it. We chose this interrogative,as our project.Beacause it is very important topic, and an issue at school.We have seen many students(including ourselves) talking in Spanish,not making a big of a deal of it. They seem careless,and do not have the iniciative to get any better.Many have problems talking,writing and speaking english and seem ok with it. So we wanted to know what is going on their minds.

Mejia Our conclusion is that students don’t speak English at school because they’re shy about the words and pronunciation, or maybe they don’t like the language at all. Some of them just prefer other languages. (cc) photo by Franco Folini on Flickr

Transcript: Example of Domestic Terrorism Punishments I would say that terrorism is on the rose because people around the world, including us, retaliate against terrorist. Then these acts are seen as terrorism, so others begin to attack as well. This just forms a continuous cycle of retaliation America, as a whole, is a big target for terrorism. With that said the all around security of American should get more involved when it comes to people that enter America from another country. They also should do some sort of background check on those that enter the U.S. Precautions Example of International Terrorism The infamous day, 9/11, is the best example of domestic terrorism. Members of Al-Qaeda decided to hijack U.S. planes and rammed them into the World Trade Center as well as the pentagon There was a incident in 1972 in Munich Germany during the Olympics. The Israeli team was taken hostage and killed by Palestinians. Terrorism around the World When it comes to the punishment for terrorist, I think that we should just make terrorist attacks a life sentence in prison. This is because some terrorist commit the attacks to die, so the death penalty is kind of pointless. So life in prison seems like a worse punishment then death. By: David Martin

Johnson and Barbara K. Kaye WHAT: Online survey of Weblog users to determine how credible they view blogs as compared to traditional media and other online sources WHERE: Online WHEN: Autumn 2004 WHY: Weblog popularity and influence surged after the events of 9/11 (~ 30,000 in 1998 --> ~ 3,000,000 in 2004) but how much faith should readers place in Weblogs? Who: M. Kent Jennings and Vicki Zeitner What: Comparing cross-generational levels of civic engagement and key socio-economic characteristics that indicate that internet access has positive effects on several indicators of civic engagement When: Using 1987 and 1997 national sample of the high school class of 1965. Presented in 2003 Political dimensions of the internet Internet use is more widespread with the public (Factors: youth, education, income) Little overlap between high levels of political interest and encountering political information through the Web Highest levels of political knowledge: males, Whites, older respondents, higher levels of education and income, positively associated with seeing information online Highest levels of opinion: levels of education, attention to campaign news Americans turn to the internet to reduce information uncertainty (Google) Divided they blog Who: Michael Xenos and Patricia Moy What: Studying Americans’ use of the internet for political information and the effects of these behaviors on political and civic engagement in an evolving media landscape When: presented in 2007 Why: To examine future reassessments of the role of the internet in public life and the evolving media landscape How: Using 2004 American National Election Studies (N=1,212), face-to-face interviews How people use the internet for information in 2004 Does political use of the Internet displace or augment the use of traditional media as a way of following and engaging in politics?

Transcript: Class Proposals By: Erin Koehn & Cassie Kanyuh Community Service Description Hands on Nursing Grade: 12 Prerequisite: Biology & Human Anatomy and Physiology I and II Year Credit: 1 Description Human Anatomy and Physiology II Grade: 11th and 12th Pre: Biology and Human Anatomy and Physiology I Year Credit: 1 Autos Autos is a hands on class that shows how to make an automobile work. They will be shown the structure of the cars and how to trouble-shoot in situations when the car is not working and to fix it. They will show their knowledge through written tests and by demonstrating how to complete the task. This class must be taken by all students in order to graduate. Students would use their knowledge of cars in their future thence will be able to fix their own cars. "At Auto, we believe that to engage students in learning is to prepare them for a life of success. We welcome those seeking to rise to their potential and take hold of their future. Since 1937, Automotive High School has honored the essential American tradition of preparing tomorrow’s workforce. Today, we place equal value on an excellent preparatory education. We are the only institution of our kind in the nation, where graduates earn both a high school degree and full NATEF (National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation) certification. Our teachers and staff are unparalleled. They do more than instruct; they invest themselves wholeheartedly in providing students with a meaningful education. This education integrates cutting-edge automotive training, a premier academic curriculum, and opportunities to serve the broader community. The result is a real-world experience. Auto graduates develop the tools they need to take on their next challenge. Whether they wish to pursue higher education or a career in the advancing automotive industry, our students are empowered to become active citizens of the world. They leave as tomorrow’s technicians, scholars, and business leaders; they begin at Auto." Rules END Better Choices Schools with Autos classes: Vancouver Community College; Canada Agoura High School; LA, CA East High School; St. Charles, IL Automotive High School; Brooklyn, NY http://www.mysuburbanlife.com/stcharles/news/education/x1042555490/East-High-School-auto-class-works-toward-being-a-real-shop http://www.autohs.com/about/ New School Curriculum Better Community Dress Code: No short shorts, low cut tops or strapless shirts or dresses. When the clothing is too revealing, it would distract some students from the curriculum in the classroom. Open Campus Lunch: This will allow students to leave during their lunch hour, but they must return before they have their next class. By allowing students to leave it will let them make lunch at home or go to a restaurant to eat if they would like to. They also could go home and get something that they possibly forgot that day. Students do not have to leave, but it is nice for them to have the option. Students are allowed to carry purses or draw string bags: They are not a distraction to classes, students can currently carry draw string bags and purses are not much different as long as they are not excessively large they are allowed. Passing time: There will be 7 minutes between passing time instead of 5 minutes. This will let students have a longer break between classes and more time between classes will let them have time to distress from the previous class and prepare for the next one. Leaving Pep Rallies: During pep rallies, you can leave if you want to. Students who do not want to go to the pep rally can leave without the parent’s consent, since it doesn’t involve learning. http://www.vcc.ca/programs-courses/detail.cfm?div_id=11&prog_id=174 Grade: 9, 10, 11, 12 Prerequisite: none Year Credit: 1 Better Students http://www.autohs.com/about/ Human Anatomy and Physiology II is a class for students who desire a more in-depth version of the first class. This class would make the students use higher order thinking skills in order to acquire the knowledge needed for tests and projects throughout the year. By taking this course, students will be able to understand the parts of the body and how each of them work. With the completion of this course, students will understand the knowledge and study skills needed for a class like this in college. http://www.dailynews.com/news/ci_14910480 Grade: 9, 10, 11, 12 Prerequisite: none Year Credit: 1 Community Services is when you help others and people around you and your efforts would affect the community and environment. In this class, students will take trips to places in the community and do tasks that are in the need of help such as cleaning, assisting with events, tutoring, or just simple acts of kindness. By assisting others, students would make the community a better place. This class will show students that it is good to participate in the community and not spend their time making destructive decisions. Many students have interest going into the nursing field
