Largent 1 Michael Largent Eng 102-013 6 Oct 2009 Interview Essay Draft 1 From Country Roots to an Urban Boy In Grandin, Missouri, during the 1940‘s, life was full of family values and neighbors were willing to lend a hand. The community atmosphere displayed the hard work of the farmers, the dedication of the local sheriff, and the love that every family shared with one another. Children did not have a care in the world and knew their parents’ word was law. Life was simple, and with this simplicity my grandparents were able to shape their own values and also gained a wealth of knowledge about the meaning of life, that they have kept into the modern day world we live in today. Growing up, my grandparents both lived in the country and both attended school. My grandfather attended a two room school until eighth grade. The smaller grades were kept in the same room while the larger students were placed into another room. Unlike today’s luxury of heat and air conditioning, my grandfather and his classmates took turns getting to school early to light the wood stove. Additionally, fluorescent lighting was unheard of and kerosene lamps were used to light the rooms. Children receiving two weeks for Christmas break was not necessary, however a week long break for deer season was included so the children were safe on the way to school. In contrast from my grandfather, my grandma attended class very similar to school today. Electricity was flowing through the building, running water was a major convenience, and grades were separated by year.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
