Robin Hood And The Achery Contest – Lesson 60 English

I Love it and it is a great story

Education from Madi

The tale begins with a brave and fearless man named Robin Hood who became an outlaw after he had killed one of the king’s soldiers. Robin was banned from the village and he moved to Sherwood where he had met a man named Little John. Robin and Little John became buddies and were then called “The Merry Men”. The Sheriff of Nottingham announced to everyone in the village that he was holding an archery contest, but it was no ordinary contest. The King ordered this contest so they could find Robin Hood and capture him. Robin heard of this and decided to join in, but because he was banned from the village, he had to disguise himself like everyone else.

Tornado/Hurricane – Lesson 25 English

Nice story.

Education from Madi

Last year, my mom and I were out shopping and their were a lot of clouds in the sky. When we were driving home, I noticed the clouds spinning but nothing was coming to the ground. I was telling my mom “Mom, look look! The clouds are spinning!”. My mom looked at them and texted my dad that we will be home soon. When we reached my neighborhood, the wind started to pick up and the trees were swaying. We pulled into the driveway when I heard “CRACK!”. I looked in my neighbors yard and saw a long, thick branch broke off of his tree. We quickly hurried inside when the wind picked up more and it started pouring. My dad and grandma sat outside while my mom and I got the candles ready. The house was shaking and I was a little nervous. We live behind a car dealership…

India

India

12-6.15

The past centuries the Indo-European peoples (Aryans) have spread across northern India and have begun to live in settled villages and tribal states.  It is probably around this time in ancient India’s history that the four earliest castes appear in Aryan society: Brahmin’s (priests), Ksatriyas (warriors and rulers), Vaisya (the broad mass of tribesmen – farmers, craftsmen and merchants), and the descendents of conquered peoples relegated to a subservient role in society as Sudras (servants and labourers).

India was governed by many rulers, it would have a large empire in control for a few hundred years and then it would go back to indavishule rulers for another few hundred years and the back to the larger empire.  India keep like that from 500 BC to 2005 AD.  The country stopped switching in 1871 AD and was a British colonies until 2005 AD.

At this time also, a rich religious oral tradition is being developed, revolving around the doings of the Aryan’s pantheon of gods and goddesses. This will later form the Vedas, the most ancient scriptures of the Hindu world and one of the most important foundations for Indian civilization.

The various Aryan tribes have coalesced into sixteen major states which now cover northern India. Most of these states are ruled by kings, but some are republics, governed by oligarchies of noblemen.

In northern India the powerful dynasties which had contended for mastery, Gurjara-Pratihara and the Palas, are in decline, their power devolving to subordinate princes. Many of these style themselves Rajputs, a designation which roughly means “warrior prince”.

How Holmes Solved the Case

The Red-headed League

Sherlock Holmes has done it again; solved another puzzling mystery and caught another criminal.  It all started when a man came to Sherlock Holmes with a case. It ended with John Clay going to jail.

His name was Mr. Jabez Wilson.  He was a pawnbroker.  His hair was also the color of fire.  He had an assistant named Vincent Spaulding who is actually the villain John Clay though Mr. Wilson didn’t know it.  Vincent showed Mr. Wilson a newspaper ad offering a high-paying job to any man with red hair.  Since business was slow for Mr. Wilson, he decided to interview for the job.  He got the job! His work was copying an encyclopedia.
Then one day, he went to work and a sign on the door said “The Red-headed League has been dissolved”. He was shocked!  In questioning the landlord he…

How To Get Through Hard Tasks

Great

Echo....

Topic: Write an essay telling how to get through hard jobs.

Sometimes when somebody gives you a hard task to do, you get overwhelmed at the thought.  I found breaking the task up into smaller pieces is the easiest way to complete it.  And then one by one you put together the task again.  As soon as you have put together all the pieces again, you have finished the task.

Dean Karnazes was a famous marathon runner.  Whenever he got tired during one of his marathons, he would start playing a mental game with himself. He would tell himself “I can at least make it to the next stop sign” or “I can make it to the other side of that hill” or something like that.  He would keep playing this game with himself till he finished the marathon.

This principle that I told you about is called the elephant…

Genre

Genre are categories and types of literature and art.  In this paper I will be focusing on literary genres.  Genres are categories of literature that help the reader learn more about the book before they read it and what kind of story you might find inside.  A book might have more than one genre.  The biggest genre distinction is fiction and nonfiction or not real and real.

Nonfiction is a way smaller genre than fiction.  Nonfiction books have to be real while fiction is up to the author’s imagination.  Nonfiction includes biographies, and autobiographies.  Biographies are written about a person’s life by an author, while an autobiography is written by a person about their own life.  Nonfiction book are good to read even if they aren’t as interesting as fictional books.

Fiction is the biggest genre imaginable. There are many different genres within the fiction genre.  Some of the…
