Because Pielke’s argument only included the side he was trying to persuade readers to believe, I did start to question what I believed about the instance. The statistics used to display his argument made me understand that there is a need for athletes to be able to choose a major that is specific to their interest and career goals. Because of the addition of Lombardi, I was able to understand that this major would involve classes that would prove beneficial to them in their future career in the field of sports; whether that meant playing professionally or being active in the sports enterprise. Throughout my analysis, I came to the conclusion that all of the statistics used to form the argument were from credible scholars, and this information
In this memo I will be going over Higher Education Debates dealing with the fears of Asian quotas being imposed; as well as going over why there seems to be a trend of Asian-American parents who are more biased towards prestigious colleges. For the first article regarding Asian quotas, I will be summarizing and reflecting upon the six arguments whether it is believed that certain Ivy league schools impose a quota on the Asian-American population or not. As for the piece dealing with Asian American parent preferring Ivy League schools for their children, I will briefly summarize and discuss the cultural reasons why Asian-American parents are highly selective over their college choices for their children. In Ron Unz’s debate, he provides statistical evidence indicating that Ivy league schools place quotas on the Asian-American population
Mr.Graff, explains that it is important to teach the reader intellectualism, and by doing that you could possibly bringing the youth into the general studies. Kids make it easier to talk about sports and music. Lastly, Graff and a high school teacher are coming up with a method to let students discuss their views on intellectuals in today's world. They came up with this to see if students really have potential in themselves. He begins with noting the difference from having book smarts and street smarts.
David Nussbaum, Geoffrey Cohen, and Eliot R in the article "Deflecting the Trajectory and Changing the Narrative: How Self-Affirmation Affects Academic Performance and Motivation Under Identity Threat." (2013), talks about how students performance based on their background in the United States and the gap of performances there is through race. The researches start off with the main factors of using some of their research from social psychological testing of students from different races to see the long periods of time and understand how they can shape their academic identities. Sherman, David, Kimberly Hartson, Kevin Binning, Valerie Purdie-Vaughns, Julio Garcia, Suzanne Taborsky-Barba, Sarah Tomassetti purpose is about the types of bases of the academic performance about the different types of races and ethnics. This article goes for people who want to understand the social psychological view of academic performances of different
Once gathered, the researcher separated the data into the following categories: gender, academic schools, degree of computer knowledge, and the type of problem the user experienced. These categories enabled the researcher to analyze the data further by allowing a better understanding of the population. The researcher then graphed the data by the above categories, to give a visual representation of the collected data to be analyzed. The data collected from the survey was assessed according to the frequency and percentage of students whom
Students shouldn’t be ostracized because of their unique capacities for learning. Standardization limits the creativity that students can expose to make the world a better place. According to the speaker, “we have to go in the exact opposite direction” of standardization. The current model of education has to do away with manufacturing students that benefit the economy and look to teaching in a way that will create a more innovative human race. This is what I believe Ken Robinson has been trying to get across for several years and finally expressed
What are your responsibilities to America? Some people say their responsibility is to serve in the army, while others say that paying their taxes and serving jury duty when it comes up is enough to uphold their responsibility. Of many of the responsibilities we, American citizens, have, some of the most important are free speech to speak our opinions, educating ourselves in core classes, and voting, as it allows us to shape America in an image we want. The first of few are free speech. Given this responsibility at a mere two years of age, I’m expected to speak my mind about what I want.
Materialism is a problem in American society, everyday people go for the next best thing just to show off their possessions. People show off what they have, and once they get tired of it, they begin to go for the latest, cellular devices, clothing’s, cars etc. According to Tim Kasser, “People develop ideals looking at the lives of their friends, neighbors, co-workers, and relatives” (Kasser52). What he is trying to say is, instead of every person helping each other expand in life, everyone is in rivalry with one another. In order to make an attempt at fixing the American society, making it less materialistic, people must become and think correspondingly of a minimalist.
“Some say the American Dream is over, that we can’t recover, that the flame is beginning to flicker. That is wrong. We may have a crisis of spirit but our strength endures and our strength comes from pulling together” (Kasich). In this quote, it is made apparent that John Kasich has a vision for the future and plans to, with the help of our nation’s citizens, correct those imperfections to improve our overall quality of life in America. This is important because as students, mothers, fathers, and workers, we see many problems within our country and all of the candidates promise change but Kasich has provided us with plans to actually take action and make a real change.
The question “Is listening more important than speaking when you are trying to persuade others?” suggests that persuasion is ability consisting of various aspects. In other words, understanding and appreciating others’ positions is the first step in persuading people to accept yours. In my opinion, the ability to comprehend others perspectives is essential towards persuading others. Throughout society and life, the evidence to support my viewpoint is pervasive. Consider the case of Winston Churchill, a British statesman in the 1940s who rallied the British people in the midst of world war 2 from the brink of defeat to glorious victory.
