A compare and contrast essay is the way of comparing the differences and the ways they are similar with two or more things. This method of writing is well known and used especially on a college and high school level. Writing a Compare and Contrast Essay you have to really know about your characters or places you are trying write or tell about. You can’t just write about anything either it has to relate with each other that is the whole point of the contrast part. For example, a good topic for a compare and contrast essay would be comparing/ contrasting two towns or talking your parents.
At first I wasn’t sure if I was ready to take Advanced Placement English Composition in my junior year but I still did. I was truly stressed that my work would be trashy but my teacher supported me in every way. We also had assignments to see if we understood literary terms. One assignment that I found intriguing was when I had to write things that I carried to school and each sentence had to be a literary device. This was one task I enjoyed because it was time consuming, challenging, and also using my previous writing knowledge to create an entertaining writing piece.
In the article, “College Pressures,” William Zinsser discusses the many struggles college students face while trying to focus on their studying. He convinces the reader of his point by using different types of rhetorical strategies. Zinsser’s usage of the rhetorical strategies such as getting straight to the point, quoting, paragraphing, the use of word pictures, and choosing a title was effectively done in his article to persuade his reader of the struggles faced by college students. The author did not waste anytime getting to the main point in his article, which is effective because it makes me interested in what he had to say. Zinsser starts off the article by giving the reader examples of notes, which students would leave for their Dean.
As mentioned before, it provides additional context that goes along well with the facts that are given in textbooks. I would like to thank you for taking the time to read my ideas regarding Huck Finn. Before reading this book, I thought it would be boring. I was surprised to find that I not only enjoyed the book, but also learned more about what was going on during this time period. I strongly urge you to continue allowing high school students to read and analyze this book during the sophomore year to align with the textbooks and

For this thesis I am studying the ways Wiesel uses silence in the literal content of his novels and in his writing technique, and am working toward explanations as to how he gives these silences meaning. My fluency in French from my semester of study in Grenoble has been invaluable since most of Wiesel's works were written originally in French. My thesis involves close, formalist readings of Wiesel's novels, and is enriched by theoretical work. (This thesis appears as "Senior Essay" on my transcript; that designation will change next semester to "Thesis.") My second major project this year is a self-designed research project which has just replaced comprehensive exams in
It is difficult to write a good essay without the proper writing skills that you need. Although everyone claims they can write a good essay, a lot of people lack the needed skills that make an essay a well written essay to grade and pass the student. The difference between professional writers and everyday student is that professional writers has writing skills that makes the essays stand out perfect. Writing can be anything you want it to be and much more, depends on your type of style and how you want it to set off to the reader. Writing takes much of your time and can be fun to do when it comes to your favorite thing that you want to talk about.
Throughout the high school and college years, the Five Paragraph Essay is an assignment you will likely familiarize yourself with. This type of essay is primarily used in History and English courses, and for some is a greater challenge than longer essays due to the limitations in content. Proving a point in strictly three body paragraphs tends to be more difficult than having an unlimited body to provide evidence. However, once you are comfortable with the composition of the essay, the assignment is greatly simplified. 1.
When I broke my arm I missed 5 days of school or approximately an hour of reading and I had too much homework to catch up. Since I only read the first book my entire essay will solely be based on how I felt when I read this book. The kind of books that I enjoy reading are the ones that have thick plots and twists, I really loved the dynamics of the characters in this book. The way that the story blended a subject like crime into a setting that it's not normally seen. I thought that the most intense part of the story was the gambling and the planning it put an image in my head of a kid
So, I questioned myself, "What it takes to finally be familiar with those rules?" This experience taught me that writing is not the same as speaking and that requires me to have skills that go along with it. Writing this particular assignment about 9/11 as a topic has taught me what is like to deal with writing a research paper in a college-level, for the first time in my senior year. That was for my high school broadcasting class. However, after I gave my paper to my teacher, Mr. Williams, the next day he told me that it still had a lot of errors in it.
Previously, in Dr. Boyce’s literacy class, we rigorously studied and learned how to apply reading strategies to specific texts. Thus, the text ‘Stupid Lady From Denver’ by Chris Tovani (2004) struck me as especially familiar. Everything that was stated in the article brought back memory after memory of all the various reading strategies we covered last semester. Tovani (2004) states that “Good readers separate themselves from struggling readers when they recognize that they are confused and do something to repair meaning”, which rings especially true to my memory as well (p. 5). She encouraged us to seek out challenging portions of the text that confused us, use our marks to label what was unknown, and then use the strategies such as ReQuest,
I formed this group because Alyssa and I were both struggling and I know Porter is great at math so I reached out to him to help us and study together. The group has been helpful because a lot of my questions can be answered by my friends. The dynamic is great because none of us are afraid to sound dumb with questions, so we are all very open and open to helping. We haven’t strictly followed the guidelines in the hand out being that we feel that the way the study group naturally works is great for us and our own learning styles. Overall, I’m happy to have my study group to help me with a class that is harder than any class I have ever
If it has changed why has it changed? If your definition has stayed the same why did it stay the same?” Application: • The students will research and bring in one article that describes the actual event of their situation. • The students will read the article using close reading strategies. • They will do a PIN reading which is they record something positive, interesting, and negative from what they read. • “For homework tonight your job is to research the situation that you and your group examined closely.
As a class assignment, we were to read five different rhetorical, persuasive, argumentative peices and examine their use of rhetoric to determine if it was an effective peice or not. We then chose one article to to write an essay on to discuss its rhetorical effectiveness. I had decided to write my essay on the article that I saw as the most effective as oppossed to the least. We brought our first drats into class, disscussed the articles, and had a peer editing/review session. We took into consider what our classmates said about our drafts and set to work developing our 3 page essay.
The first event was a consistent thing which was teachers correcting my essays . Every time I would receive an essay or an assignment I would always have an error with using the words " their and there" and using the right conjunction words. The problem that I had was when I was younger I wasn 't taught how to use those words. For an example instead of using the word your correctly I would use it "You 're a pretty cool person." When in reality you 're supposed to use it with the word "you 're."
