    When I was ten years old I left public school and attended a private school. At the private school every hour of the day was scheduled and the students had no choice in classes and activities. For example, we had no option on what to do during recess; it was already picked for us. Field trips were limited to a teacher’s farm, instead of going to the Denver Zoo or the Natural History Museum where most public schools classes went for field trips. Going to the zoo or the museum could be compared to exiting the cave, where students could see new things for the first time. Pictures of animals in the classroom could become real at the zoo. The teachers thought that giving no options to the students was in their best interest. The teachers were warm and maternal, however they taught according to this style. I think I can consider this private school to have some similar characteristics to the cave in the story. I felt mentally restricted, someone had everything planned similar to having no choice to watch the puppet show. I attended this school for three years and moved to a public middle school near my home. I wasn’t certain I wanted to leave when the time…

    “Snow Leopards at the Denver Zoo” by Williams Matthew. I found it very interesting that while the guy was observing the snow leopards in their environment, instead of thinking about how these particular snow leopards interacted, and did different things, he made comments focused on extinction. For instance, he states, “Snow leopards land without sound as if they were already extinct” (Matthews). I think perspective is very important when thinking about this poem. We are focusing on the entire…

    The study on the Lincoln’s Children Zoo is not the only study that shows the extreme economic impact zoos and aquaria have. There are many other people that have researched, and show how zoos are economic generators for the communities.

    While the location is ideal, there are some unsavory elements. Some areas of Colfax have a bit of a reputation for selling and using drugs. While the Denver police have done a wonderful job cleaning up much of Colfax, the reputation is still worth noting because it is well-earned. Also, the nightlife can be somewhat intense on Colfax Avenue. While a lively bar scene could be considered a plus, we must work with other bars to improve to the standard of alcohol service, and work with the police to…

    ticket item in all zoos. Pandas bring prestige and fame to a zoo. What most people don’t know though, is that fame and prestige cost a lot of money. For each panda that a zoo has, it cost them one million dollars per year plus another six hundred thousand dollars every time a cub is born. On top of that, the money that the zoos make annually is not enough to cover the cost of the pandas (Washington Post 2). Pandas are not worth one million dollars a year, simply to look at. There are people in…

The author depicts the efforts of these immigrant students attempting to be acclimated to live away from their kinship systems, the dorm life, and the difficulties in managing financial responsibilities.
