Interpretation4.520 Words / ~10 pages Cinnamon Rolls a short story by Louisa Bello The moon had an odd paleness about it tonight. The Parks police were long gone now, at home with their wives and steaming mugs of tea. Tonight, he barely felt the cold. The moon, a punctuated sphere hung there, above him, alone, aghast, in the blackened, starless sky. When would she come? As he sat on the park bench and focused on the moon, it seemed to melt into the horrified, painted face of his Mother. He tried to shake her away. Those heavily kohl’ed eyes scooped from her pale foundation, dark with hatred, or, what was it? He still couldn’t place it. He racked his memory for clarity. It seemed so important now. Her dressing table had always been covered in products to style and tease and such; in aid of the creation of her Friday evening look. She used to sit in her robe, on those evenings, getting…[show more]

Essay8.159 Words / ~22 pages Theorists have proposed a need for educators to adopt a balanced approach to literacy teaching which has lead to the implementatio­n of critical-cogn­itive psychology within this literature review. The acceptance that background knowledge has a significant impact on reading comprehension for English Language Learners, including Indigenous students, is vital. Therefore, it is important for teachers to adopt culturally appropriate strategies and resources to engage and motivate Indigenous students within their learning. This literature review has outlined such strategies and resources to assist educators to enhance outcomes for these students. Reference List Aborginal and Torres Strait Islander Commission. (1995).

Essay4.281 Words / ~10 pages FIGURATIVE LANGUAGE The only substantial difference between poetry and other uses of language is the fact that the rhythms of poetry are organized into lines. provides the framework for a range of other devices of sound and syntax that together constitute a creative form which is specific to poetry. some theories of poetry in some historial contexts relegate poetic form as something merely superadded to poetry, and argue instead that poetry can be characterized as a special use of figurative language . for coleridge, poetry employs a special kind of figure, the poetic symbol. shelley claims, that the two main organizing principles of poetry are metre and metaphor. they argue that poetry is distinguished from scientific discourse by being a kind of thinking by means of metaphors. we need to ask whether or not poetry does use figurative…[show more]

Essay1.459 Words / ~ pages Coral reefs Coral reefs are a unique marine ecosystem. They are built up entirely of living organisms. Reefs are huge deposits of calcium carbonate made up mainly of corals. It is mainly controlled by four factors: ● temperature – coral growth needs a minimum water temperature of 18°C. They grow best between 23°C and 25°C ● light – is needed for the coral to grow; because of this need, corals grow only in shallow water ● water depth – because of the need for light, most reefs grow where the sea is less than 25 metres deep ● salinity – since corals are marine creatures, they can only survive in salt water. At a local level, there are other factors affecting where coral reefs develop: ● wave action – corals need well oxygenated salt water; this occurs in areas of strong wave action Coral reefs are often called the rainforests of the sea, both due…[show more]
Lab Report961 Words / ~ pages Springs theory: how does mass affect the elasticity of a springMYP criterion C exemplar Instruction sheet: BACKGROUND Theory suggests that for a mass (m) suspended on a spring (spring constant k), the period of oscillation (T) is given by the following formula T = 2π√(m/k) WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO? By changing the mass suspended on the spring and measuring the period, you are going to plot a suitable graph to demonstrate whether the relationship above is correct and calculate the spring constant (k) of the spring. This value can then be compared with the actual value for the spring which is known to be 23.5N/m. Use a range of masses from 100g to 600g. For each mass take the time for 10 oscillations and divide by ten to get a value for the period. Repeat this measurement three times for each mass. Independent variable: Mass Dependent variable:…[show more]

However, we can look at Germany as a country that was under such heavy Nazi influence they had no choice but to go along with Adolf Hitler’s plans of war, prejudice and horror due to Hitler’s profound ability in propaganda and public talks they were eased into a sense of righteousness­, superiority and devotion to Hitler and his party.
