Abigail is later presented as autocratic and flirtatious. This is apparent when she tells John to ‘Give’ her ‘a word’. The use of the imperative verb ‘give’ portrays Abigail as very authoritative and controlling – suggesting she is a confident and strong character (and implies the relationship to be rather one-sided). She continues to describe his word as ‘soft’. This implies that Abigail has a flirtatious and provocative nature (who desires attention from
Throughout America's history, the design of our currency has been changed quite a few times for reasons such as, avoiding counterfeit threats or to instill and show our American pride. In 2020, the U.S. will be changing the face of the $10 bill to a woman's face. The year 2020 is significant because it is the 100th year anniversary of when women gained the right to vote. You could say there are many women that deserve this honor, but I believe that Lucy Stone should be the one featured on the bill because of her many contributions to the evolution of American democracy.
Selina Juul had a central idea from the beginning of her persuasive speech. The speaker’s central idea was about persuading people to stop wasting food. Juul did not deviate from her central idea or from her main points of her speech. She introduced the topic, main points with supporting facts, visual aids, and a conclusion. Juul was able to also implement her thesis and factual facts to support her entire speech presentation. She also added her personal experience with people in her native country where there is no food waste in comparison to the United States. Overall, Juul stayed focus with her central idea about the importance to stop food wasting and ways to prevent it.
Today Representative Nancy Pelosi (Democrat-CA 18th district) becomes the first woman elected as Speaker of US House of Representatives. She is arguably the most powerful woman in Washington DC; Senator Clinton notwithstanding. It is the beginning of 110th congress, the first time democrats have held the majority in 12 years. However, Speaker Pelosi is no stranger to historical firsts. Speaker Pelosi made history in 2002 when she became the first woman elected House Democratic minority leader. Today is somewhat of a coronation of a life long political journey to the top of congressional politics. Who is Nancy Pelosi? Pelosi was born and raised Nancy D'Alesandro in the Little Italy district of Baltimore, Maryland. Pelosi hails from a family
Sometimes internal wars can be fought just as vehemently and result in as many casualties as an external war. John Knowles shows us this in his novel, A Separate Peace. During the time of this story, WW2 rages on, whilst the main character, Gene Forrester, battles his own internal conflicts just as violently. From the beginning, you can see that the entire novel is revolved around the happenings of World War 2.
The famous speech “I have a dream” from Dr. Luther King Jr. is clearly a persuasive speech. Based on this idea, we can easily recognize some communication patters associated to any speech that aims to influence another person’s attitude, beliefs, values and/or behaviors. Pathos is primordial in a persuasive speech as a method of convincing people with arguments drawn out through an emotional response. First, Dr. King speech needs to demonstrate that there is a problem that affects them and tries to show up that something needs to be done. He uses magisterially some illustration while explaining why they cannot be satisfied: “bodies heavy with the fatigue of travel cannot gain lodging…” In this case, he is dramatizing the need and arousing an
Thousands of women have screamed at the top of their lungs, clawed at the patriarchy, and tirelessly fought for their rights as citizens of the United States of America. From the beginning of mankind, women have been labeled as inferior to men not only physically, but mentally and intellectually as well. Only in 1920 did women gain the right to voice their opinions in government elections while wealthy white men received the expected right since the creation of the United States. A pioneer in women’s suffrage, Susan B. Anthony publicly spoke out against this hypocrisy in a time when women were only seen as child bearers and household keepers. Using the United State’s very own Constitution and Declaration as ammunition, Anthony wrote countless

Nikki Giovanni has voice that is not afraid to speak what is on her mind. She strives to foster that same confidence in students and listeners through her educational practices and poems.

Today I'm going to be talking about Melba. The reason why is because she is an important person of why integration ended. To start off she almost died because of a racist people as a young child because the doctor took away her medicine for her to stay alive. Then she wants to attend a all white school Central High. And she gets to because Little Rock is integrating and she signed up for it. Then a big riot starts and the students and teachers treated the LR9(that’s what the called them because there where nine students who attended) terrible. Then Danny a solider who helps keep the LR9 safe from the riot is very helpful to Melba. He gives her all kinds of advice. Even one time some boy splashed ink or some acid in her face and Danny came with a bucket of cold water if he wasn’t there she would have lost her eye sight.
My wife Clementine decided we need these journals to document what we see on our travels to Oregon next month, however I honestly think they are a waste of time. At least little Brooke enjoys it. On her 6th birthday last year we got her a notebook that she 's been writing in so I think she 's ready for these journals. I remember three years ago when Clementine was 18 we would go on walks around our little town of bloomesdale. I shore do miss those times, but we haven 't gone on many walks since then, because she 's been cross with me about overruling her vote to go to Oregon.

I am writing on behalf of the 8th Grade Class at Monticello Trails Middle School to persuade you to publish a book for Kansas. Kansas would like a book because 46 out of 50 states do not have a Goodnight Series book and Kansas is one of those 4 states that do not. I believe that Kansas deserves to be included in the Goodnight Series because many people believe that Kansas is a boring state but there are many things that other states do not have that are in Kansas.
