What is a Hero? If you were to look up the word hero on dictionary.com it would say that a hero was a "male character in a story, play, film,etc. of distinguished courage or ability." This though, is not really true because to all of us a hero is something more than this. Everyone has seen a hero in his/her life in which they have met a definition better than the dictionary's. There are many people with different definitions of a hero. A real hero, though, will be someone people can look up to as role model, such as mothers or Martin Luther King Jr.; however heroes will not be so stereotypical, such as superheroes Heroes exist in society to provide a behavior for people to emulate. The hero must provide a figure in which people want themselves or their children to be like. With this figure that has been provided people decide to simulate the labor done by the hero. Therefore there is an understanding of the model's work, and why the figure was flawless causing the imitator to want to be more like the hero. Not only does the imitator's longing for success grow, but their necessity to become a better person and laborer does too. Thus the person more willing to work and provide for themselves and their society; just as it was done by the heroine. Therefore people become a better person that others need in their life and society. Due to the fact that many others can do this there also many examples. There are many examples that qualify as a role model. One example would be a mother because she inspires her kids. George the husband of Ana, a woman with cancer, said in a letter, "Invariably you muster a smile." Due to the this, Ana's daughter, Monica, says in a letter, "She is my counselor, my teacher, and my best friend... She is my idol." In addition to saying that Ana is her role model, Monica, then explains how her problems are nothing compared to Ana's, and because of her she works harder to never give up. Ana's son, Adam, also says that his mother is someone he looks up to for she is an inspiration to him. Another example would basically be anyone who could be seen as someone who has accomplished a remarkable goal, for instance Martin Luther King Jr. In fact, even today people still see him as a diligent man who had enforced the idea of equal rights between people. Therefore people call him a hero and see him as someone to be like when they grow up. Most heroes are stereotypically portrayed as strong, courageous, and have powers of some kind. However this is not the case when discussing a real hero. For example superman is what children call a hero because of how he saves people with his super-strength,
time putting my words on paper. I feel that my writing is average but I would like to write professional papers one day. Spelling, grammar, sentence structure, thesis, body and conclusion are some of the skills I learned in my English classes. My sister was my first teacher in English. She used a deck of cards to teach me letters and numbers in the 1960’s. The use of technology has also helped my English writing skills. These skills have taught me to write much better papers for my college classes…
Well, in high school we never really had to write many papers at all. In high school I probably wrote like three papers in all my four years. Most of the time we weren’t writing to perfect our paper we were writing to complete them and get a grade and be done with them. I don’t think a teacher ever handed me back a paper and gave me a chance to revise my work, they just gave me a poor grade if I did badly. I mean not to say that all my papers in high school were bad. They were good; I just don’t…

Secondary school selection (The eleven plus test. 11+)
The Eleven plus test is a test given to pupils in their last year of primary school (year 6 in England and year 7 in Northern Ireland) and is used as a means to determine whether that pupil is suited to the academic rigours of a grammar school education. In other words will he/she be offered a place in the grammar school of their parent's choice? Since the early 1970s many areas of the United Kingdom have not used the Eleven plus exam and have…

Students experience anxiety due to social standards, and cheating can be a way to stop their issues. In modern schooling, the course rigor is more brutal than it was years before it. The easiest way for college students to solve their issues with school is to cheat. Plagiarism gives students a false sense of accomplishment and even though the task is done, their anxiety still remains because they know that they cheated. Therefore, cheating does not solve anxiety but just makes students lose academic…
