Teaching in an urban environment is a unique experience, especially in a city like New York where individuals emanate from many backgrounds and cultures. Teaching in a multicultural setting has both its rewards and challenges. Having students from various parts of the world creates a classroom of diversity and global awareness. However, if not properly trained to adapt and teach to a style that is effective and relatable to the entire array of students, the task can prove to be challenging for future teachers and damaging to their students.
Many believe that our government has absolutely no ethics in decision making at all. With so many government issues that are going on right now, it is clear that there is a lack of ethics being applied in the decision making. One of the reasons why many people feel that our government has no ethics is due to the lack of understanding of it. The true meaning of ethics is the study of right and wrong. In other words, “ethics is a descriptive discipline, involving the collection and interpretation of data on what people from various cultures believe, without any consideration for the appropriateness or reasonableness of those beliefs” (Ruggiero, 2008, p. 5). The laws and ethics work together to set forth guidelines by which the American people shall adhere to.
Diversity is a very important trend in education. Diversity is a commitment to recognizing and appreciating the variety of characteristics that make individuals unique in an atmosphere that promotes and celebrates individual and collective achievement (Bauman & Dillion). As time goes on, diversity is more prevalent in the classroom. There are more minorities such as Hispanics, African Americans and Asians in American classrooms than ever. Diversity, however, does not refer only to race. The richness of inclusion has been stretched to recognize differences in age, gender, social and economic differences (Marx, 43). Diversity also includes students with disabilities. In the classroom, teachers need to be aware of differences among students in order to teach effectively to all students.
This paper will discuss how the New Kingdom Egyptian statuette “Osiris” typifies traditional Egyptian funerary art, specifically statuary. The first aspect discussed will be the materials typically used in Egyptian funerary statuary, and why those materials were used. Secondly, a look will be taken at the specific pose the statuette takes, and how that specific pose relates to other funerary statuary.

With Harvard behind him, John F Kennedy briefly attended Stanford Business School and along with most Americans of his age registered for the draft in October 1940. His number was called, but he used his status as a student to defer entry into the military until the summer of 1941. Meanwhile, he left Stanford Business School and took a rather aimless trip through South America in the spring of 1941. John failed the physicals for both the army and the navy. His failed them from his health problems such as, stomach trouble, was far too thin, and while playing football on the Harvard JV squad during his sophomore year he had a bad fall that led to a rupture of his spinal disc. This left him with back troubles that would plaque him for the rest of his life. His father’s connection prevailed and a friendly doctor gave John a clean bill of health.
