Things Fall Apart - Chinua Achebe’s novel, Things Fall Apart, tells the story of Okonkwo. As a fearful and stubborn protagonist, the novel retains a clear focus upon his thoughts and actions.

Although the rigid frame of Okonkwo’s fears and beliefs restrict most of the narrative to his myopic account of Ibo life, the views of those in contrast to his can be seen on the outskirts of the text....   [tags: Literature Analysis, Chinua Achebe] 1761 words

The Mind-Body Connection in Learning: Applications to Maximizing Learning - For many years, the dominant theory of classroom teaching has been “sit and git,” (Jensen, 2005, p. 60) where students are expected to sit quietly, take notes, study material, and then demonstrate mastery of this material on tests and quizzes. As studies of the brain reveal its inner workings, researchers are discovering that learning is a more complex, whole-body process than previously imagined. With better brain imaging techniques, neuroscientists are uncovering the root physical and chemical mechanisms that make up the processes of “learning” and “memory.” Because of this, new techniques are being developed, and old methods vetted, for teaching in ways that maximize the brain’s ability to learn (Wolfe, 2001, p....   [tags: Education]

Connection in Forster’s Howards End - Connection in Forster’s Howards End       The epigraph of E.M. Forster's novel Howards End is just two words: "only connect".  As economical as this gesture seems, critics and interpreters have made much of this succinct epigraph and the theme of connection in Howards End.  Stephen Land, for example, cites a:   demand for connection, in the sense of moving freely between the two Forsterian worlds - the two "sides of the hedge", the everyday world of social norms and the arcadian or paradisal world of individual self-realization - has its roots in earlier stories..." [1]     He goes on to say that "each [character] must reconcile or connect for himself the range of conceptual polarities exposed by the story - prose and passion, seen and unseen, masculine and feminine, new and old"  (Land, 165).  Land reads the novel as some sort of compromise between these two worlds - the realm of social justice and the realm of the individual.  Other critics have made similar gestures.  James McConkey, for one, feels that "Margaret will reconcile the human and transcendent realms so that she may live in harmony with the human; the voice senses the connection through its remove from both." [2]   These critics seem to confuse "connection" with "reconciliation", seem to read the novel as a triumph for humanism and social justice.  I feel this is a little bit of ....   [tags: Howard Howards]

This courage is manifest in Duffy’s ability and desire to revise masculinist representations of female identity and her engagement with feminine discourse, a concept which, as Sara Mills points out: has moved away from viewing women as simply an oppressed group, as victims of male domination, and has tried to formulate ways of analysing power as it manifests itself and as it is resisted in the relations of everyday life....   [tags: Carol Ann Duffy]
