    663 words
    Cause and Effect Report " The Norm" Throughout history society has changed greatly. However, much has remained untouched by the sands of time. One of the unchanged properties is what society considers the "Norm". The "Norm", is a set of rules which govern society. It is not a printed document (usually), but merely a commonly accepted set of standards. The "Norm" is made up by society's perception of what is acceptable.

  • Children Of The Same Age
    549 words
    25 million American children can not be wrong. Even though at least 20 million of these kids will suffer injury by the age of 15, only 10% of the injuries are serious enough to require more than one visit to the doctor.

  • Younger And Older Baby Boomers
    1,204 words

But the boomers' retirement won't turn every city into Sun City. Aging will be dramatic in places with few children, but some of toda...
  • Once Ler
    701 words
    Seuss addresses a growing crisis by employing nonsensical words and images, such as a Thneed, "a Fine-Something-That-All-People-Need". The greedy Once-ler and his factories that sully the sky artfully inform the reader about the dangers of pollution, extinction, and deforestation. However, Seuss never mentions these buzzwords. Instead, he uses a magical language that defies rational criticism and enraptures children of all ages: the cruffulous croak and smogulous smoke, the snergelly hose, rippu...
