Social Studies’ Place in Elementary Education : A 10 page paper discussing the importance of including social studies in elementary education.

Music Appreciation Through The Ages : 30 pages in length. One of the reasons that the "average Joe" cares little for classical music is that he knows nothing of it. We have raised generations in which it is common for the average person to be unable to distinguish between Vivaldi and Tchaikovsky. Khatchaturian is an unknown name, and a response of, "I’ve heard that one—it’s on all the old cartoons" is commonplace. Some observers believe that classical music is now a special taste, like Greek language or pre-Columbian archeology. With the proper exposure and the proper method of teaching—that of anticipated surprise rather than supreme boredom and all-too-common pretentiousness—that respect can slip into a love of the music that will be enduring for a lifetime and so preserve the genius of the ages.
