D’Agnilli 1 Michael D’Agnilli Intro to teaching Dr. Spearmen 11 February 2008 Reaction paper 3 I thought that this chapter hit on a lot of very important and relevant issues that affect not only students but how teachers have to react to the students. The main highlights I felt were how the family has changed in America, poverty, and overall delinquency in are youth today. The first two more focused on the younger kids, and the later concerned with the teens and high school students. I was pretty amazed when I looked at the statistics at how much the American family has changed over the years; the most staggering to me was that divorce rates have quadrupled between 1978-2000.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
