Life in New France
The early 17th century saw the birth of New France as claimed by Samuel de Champlain. The father of New France claimed the land in 1608 by establishing the French territory of Quebec. New France was an integral part of history because their rapid colonization lead to exponential growth for the country. The actions France took towards colonizing and improving claiming New France is what eventually gave way to the birth of Canada. Immigrants who left their lives to explore the New World are integral elements of the Empire’s success. What those immigrants did for a living, their lifestyles, and their relationships with the Natives of North America were all significant aspects of the development and more or less creation of a new colony. The immigrants of New France were one of the biggest reasons the colony thrived to the extent that it did. In the beginning, the average French immigrant was poor, male and unattached to his country. In the 17th century, these immigrant men were often companionless because their thoughts did not lie with the possibility of settling down in the new world. They were the engagés or contracted servants. Men who were made to work in Canada for three years in return for food, lodging, and return passage to their homes in France.In the late 17th century, an imbalance of sexes had men outnumbering women 6:1. The King of France sent his “filles du Roi” or “King’s daughters” as a response. These young women of marrying age were often orphans and became the largest source of women immigrants to Canada. The kings Daughters were an important part of early New France because they aided in creating a new generation for New France which ensured it would not die out. The 18th century saw the bulk of the immigrant flow coming from the Colonial Military Garrison. These men were all recruited by the military in France and then taken to Canada. There is great debate over how many of these men came by choice because the Colonial...
...Universities should not weigh public school marks equally to private school marks because the way the schools function, are entirely contrastive. Private schools do not belong to the Ministry of Education; therefore there is no specific curriculum that they have to follow. They can follow a different form of teaching and give students an opportunity to specialize in their area of interest. An example of this are kids who are in athletic programs, which spend half their days training and working out.
Another way private school varies from public school is the teachers they higher are not required to have a degree, therefore students in private school could be taught by a teacher who has never been to teachers college.
There are also schools that follow a completely different grading system then us, for example the International Baccalaureate Program. Their grading system requires the teachers to give them a grade out of 7, and then convert it into a percentage when needed.
So why should students who are not following the same curriculum, have undereducated teachers, and don’t even follow the same grading system, be compared equally to those of whom have a specified curriculum and highly educated teachers?
Universities should start taking into consideration the fact the private schools function completely differently then public schools. I’m not saying that every university has to look at every student, figure out how many students were in their class,...

...Though the effects of merely listening to music are somewhat significant, the effects of musical education are even greater. Many experts agree that “with music lessons, because there are so many different facets involved, such as memorizing, expressing emotion, and learning about musical interval and chords, the multidimensional nature of the experience may be motivating to the IQ effect” (“Effect of Music on Children’s Intelligence”). A child taking music lessons greatly improves their comprehension of proportional math, which is of great importance in higher level mathematics. Besides the more obvious mathematical effect, the child will explore the lyrical rhythm and content of the music; understanding the vocabulary and rhythm of the musical language may allow them to improve both their reading and writing skills. So, in effect, an education in music will aid the child in what are considered by many to be the two most important and fundamental areas of study. On this same note, concerning failing students, music education has been shown to pull children from even the greatest depths of academic failure. As Olson says, “music can be one of the most influential factors in getting at-risk students motivated” (Olson). With a step outside of the normal, standardized educational system, the failing student may be able to see music as inspiration to do well in other areas of life. Through music, the student may now be able to express thought and emotion, make bonds with other...
