  • The Hurricane Film The Power Of The Written Word

    1080 words, 5 pages

    “Writing is a weapon more powerful than fists could ever be.” Norman Jewison highlights the power of the written word and education over physical strength throughout The Hurricane. He allows the audience to realise the full extent of this power by employing camera techniques, voiceovers, dialogue and lighting effectively. Through these visual and verbal techniques he teaches the audience that in the end it is the written word that frees Rubin Carter from wrongful imprisonment, not his “fists”. ‘The Sixteenth Round’, Rubin Hurricane Carter’s autobiography, is a sym

    Traditionally it has been accepted that all that is needed to effect learning is for a professor to display his or her knowledge in a dynamic lecture. However, that is only part of what is needed. The other part is to have the students engage in activities that make them think about the course content and, wherever possible, to transfer it to new situations. When someone learns something, we expect that they will remember it for a good length of time, if not for their entire life. If the knowledge is acquired for only an hour or a week or

    Controversy has spanned over the years as to which approach to reading should be used in the typical classroom setting. As children collect information regarding oral language before they speak, they also need to collect information about written language before reading. Young learners’ enjoy books that contain brightly colored pictures, rhythm, and wordless books. Wordless books help them to create their own stories and emphasize that books contain stories. As children begin to grow older, it’s essential that they learn the difference between words and pictures. Without the recognition of wor

    When I started to learn English, it was a challenge that my family and I wanted to pass. The English language is completely different from the Chinese language.

Like any other subject or activity, learning English is a process that could be either hard or easy, but it is something I knew that will bring me satisfaction and success in the future.
