I just need some facts.
Okay, Let me think.
Give me one sec. Ive to long off for 2 minutes
Ok. this is what i have. Horace Mann was born in Franklin, Massachusetts, in 1796. At the age of 20, he was admitted to Brown University. After that, he practiced law and won a seat in the Massachusetts Senate. He focused mainly on improvements through the building of canals and railroads. The Massachusetts education system had been suffering since 1647, and in 1837 the nation’s first board of education was created, with Mann as its secretary.
Okay. Horace Mann Born: May 4, 1796 Death: August 2, 1859 Classification: An American education reformer He did server as an politician in the Massachusetts House of Representatives from 1827 to 1833. Then he moved to the Massachusetts Senate for three years. I'm thinking to add more but hold on.
Okay. Should I do it like that, then? I am again typing it in google docs; I'll print tomorrow.
What's the objective? To research? Or to type a paper?
No, not a paper; we were only told to gather some facts.
This keep it in my format. Nice and simple. So when you type the paper it will be faster :)
Okedoke. I'll just be making a poster about him, though, not an essay or anything like that.
oK. So I type Horace Mann Born: May 4, 1796 Death: August 2, 1859 Classification: An American education reformer He did server as an politician in the Massachusetts House of Representatives from 1827 to 1833. Then he moved to the Massachusetts Senate for three years. ?
Okay. Which do you think are some Important points?
I'm only jotting down notes.
I'd say this: Horace Mann s reforms and ideas have had influence during his time, and now in our time on many issues. Some of issues the issues are the purpose of education and the improvement of education. The purpose of education is a large subject and Horace Mann covered it completely throughout his life. Even today the purpose of our schools is almost the same as what Horace Mann prescribed it should be long ago. It explain what he influenced from his reforms and ideas.
Okedoke, I'll also type when/where he was born.
This is how is should go: Main facts(birth place)(birthdate etc)>His ideas/reforms>His actions>His influences>Interesting facts about him.
