Diversity Racism and discrimination of any sort have many negative effects on people. Diversity is a good thing because it can teach to become more tolerant of others. History is repeating its self again and it will be the fall of our country. Racism is a terrible thing but most hear it on a daily basis. That same thing also happens because of other differences such as religion, gender, ethnicity, sexuality, and country origin. I believe racism and discrimination occurs for many reasons. Firstly, I think racism occurs with some because it’s a shortcut to blame others for their own problems that they can’t solve themselves. Also I think they do it to feel more powerful and superior to others. I also believe discrimination occurs because people who see people with differences to them are doing better than them and they feel the need to make an excuse for them doing better than them so they try to make others feel worse about themselves. It occurs also because some have low self-esteem so look for ways to make other people feel as bad as they do. In Gran Torino starring Clint Eastwood we saw that at first he was very racist, discriminatory, and very ignorant. Throughout the movie we saw that as Walt met and became friends with people of other races and religions that he became less racist and discriminatory. A lesson to be learned from that movie is that don’t judge others without at least talking and getting to know them. We also saw that as Walt knew the people of other races is that he liked and cared for them more than he did for his own children. I think he became less racist because he realized that people of other races are exactly the same except for the way they look. Racism and discrimination has terrible effects on people’s lives such as a lowered self-esteem, and resentment towards others. In my own life I have received much discrimination towards being a member of the Mormon Church. I get asked many questions that are demeaning to the church and it kind of spills over toward myself. People also make many jokes toward my beliefs. In my own life I have felt and…

flexibility in my lesson planning and I am confident the application of non-traditional methods t appeal to multiple intelligences will enable me to reach more of my cadets.
In regard to how I facilitate my class, normally on an academic day (JROTC schedule has two academic days in a week) I would begin by asking questions. I would find out what my cadet’s background, prior knowledge and experience with the topic. I would briefly discuss expectations for the class. I would explain to them what…
Training Corps can lead to many career paths. JROTC cadets can go into the military at a higher rank or the program can just help students with leadership for any job. I joined JROTC because my dad is the Commander. Also in the year before I saw many friends go through the first year of the program and learn so much. I have now seen results first hand and through two days realized how much JROTC can help me.
I have high standards for everything I do, and JROTC is no exception. I really believe the program…

“Why Did I enroll in JROTC”
The reason I enrolled in JROTC was to better myself as a young person and to learn the fundamentals of the Army. When I was in the 8th grade at James Martin Middle School we had things called high school days which were when Zebulon B. Vance High school used to come over and talk to us about high school. I remember one day they came and it was their ROTC program but they have the air force program…
important class in my high school life. The program JROTC, had all 3 sociological perspectives, Functionalist Perspective, Conflict Perspective, and Symbolic Interactionist Perspective. We had at one point covered all 3 of these perspectives, our instructor wanted us to see a different view on how society/things work. We would be given different tasks, on a lower grader level (let) would ask us what to do in a situation. Being an older cadet in JROTC we would have to look out of our perspective and…
“JROTC builds character and leadership”
To begin, the JROTC helps build character by having you take part in the program. JROTC shows you how to be a good leader, and if you become a good leader you can go far. It also helps you find yourself and what kind of a person you become. We do all kinds of activities where it has you take control of your class. I know that it has helped me become a better leader and a better person. Just from being in the program for three years JROTC has showed me a…

There are several ways that the JROTC program motives young people to join in. One of
those several ways is community service. Doing community service is very important to the
JROTC program. It does not only define the selflessservice you give but the integrity you have.
In JROTC you can do community service by putting flags on veterans grave sites, helping out in
the Red Cross Blood Drive, and so many other things…
