The role of the student, agent, and parent in preparing students for their academic future.
Lev Vygotsky explained that we cannot understand the individual without understanding the social and historical context in which he or she lives. Languages, as well as ways of thinking and communicating, emerge from particular cultural contexts (Lattuca & Stark, 2009, p. 156). Learning occurs through communication, in many different contexts, and in all different languages. Therefore maintaining a sociocultural perspective within the classroom allows us to understand the nuances of our learners.
Ancient Egyptian jewelry represents a long history of divine craftsmanship by a people we continue to be intrigued by. Egyptian art and jewelry was never just art, but represented a deeper meaning, which even today baffles archaeologists.
Sex was a completely normal and fulfilling experiencing in Pompeii, and most of what we know about the eroticism that took place there was left on the walls. For 1700 years, this Greco Roman town lay buried in a blanket of ash and pumice, until archaeologists unearthed a town home to 20000 people. Beginning excavations were haphazard and damaging, yet while methods of archaeology were more refined, more artifacts more discovered. Some of the most recognizable and erotic art and archaeological finds in Pompeii were statues, large pools, and several murals of Priapus.
Linguistic imperialism not only happens within the confines of the classroom, but inside village caste systems. Hindu and Muslim touchable caste members are the majority speakers of the Standard Hindi language; therefore this might explain the dialect distribution of Hindi variations, and Standard English, an untouchable language. Lack of usage of the untouchable dialects and languages shows us that there is an evident language of prestige within the touchable caste.
