In "America Needs Its Nerds" the author Leonid Fridman develops his argument by stating how the nerds feel when they are made fun of by others, how America has created stereotypes and how people look over them for the "cool kids." Many students take pride in their education. They also try to keep their grades up because academic achievement is important. Students who study hard and work hard do not like to admit to others how much they study/work. The author states, "Many students are ashamed to admit, even to their friends, how much they study."
Finally, Freedhoff’s focus was to inform the audience in this case parents of the obese children and prove that the main issue starts with them. The author successfully accomplished this through his ethical fallacy focusing on certain group and using somewhat of an emotional appeal. He used strong Ethos to grab the attention of this audience and back up his claims through Appeal to Authority. Freedhoff not only tried to reach certain audience but expend larger picture of the sources problem. His article was very well constructed and supported his Toulmin arguments.
I think it’s ridiculous for a student to make such excuses! It made me angry when I read that some student’s lie about a relative’s death so that they can get excused from an assignment, how could somebody do that!? And who would want that irresponsible student to work for them after they graduate, or if they graduate from college. She explained so many different excuses in the article and I was actually entertained reading them. Why continue to attend college if you are never able to turn in work on
They now are putting themselves in the shoes of a bystander. This creates a logic of, if I hate him for not standing up in that situation, and I am him in another situation, then I would hate myself. Therefore, there is a new self-motivation created from the audience for the audience to stand up. Now in an effort not to fall into his very same position they will be more likely to stand up which means he did effectively use logos to achieve his goal. Over all, Sam Cook’s spoken word poem “Flat Land” effectively used ethos pathos and logos to achieve its purpose.
In order to successfully create more jobs, Kasich will seek to cut taxes dramatically so that these jobs can be made available. This is important because this accomplishment as governor shows that he is active, strong willed, and strives to achieve his goals. As Governor, Kasich has developed an “early warning system” to help notify parents and teachers if they notice a child veering towards becoming a dropout. ("Education - John Kasich."). To build a large workforce and create a successful generation for the
Passions don’t just have an affect you, they teach others knowledge, common sense and, they teach people responsibility. My passions are my education, Boy Scouts and, my family. These greatly affect the world because they help to create a better and more responsible generation. Not only do they create a better generation, they help sustain what the people before us have worked so hard to create. Nelson Mandela once said,” Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” My education is important to me and like Nelson Mandela said, you can change the world with it.
Some student argue that college writing is very similar to high school writing and that’s why they think it is unnecessary to take a writing class in college. I believe that the students who believe college writing is exactly like high school writing are wrong because writing expectations are different in college. For some students across the U.S. a college writing class is very useless and a waste of time but on the other hand many more student across the nation need to take a writing class due to their poor grammar and subpar communication skills and would greatly benefit from this course. In this nation communication is a major key to being successful because in every job you need to be able to communicate with you peers and coworkers to get a certain task done, so our nation would benefit by making a writing class mandatory. To be given approximately 2 hours per week to primarily focus on writing is extremely beneficial to students because even though many students think college writing is a waste of time in reality it doesn
It appears as if Gray is not alone in this sentiment, as other professors/board members have taken note of growing fragility within the youth. He reached out to a colleague from a major university who gave his thoughts via email, "...There has been an increase in diagnosable mental health problems, but there has also been a decrease in the ability of many young people to manage the everyday bumps in the road of life." While many professors have recognized said trend among millennial undergrads, the uncomfortable stigma surrounding mental health can cause even the most opinionated of critics to refrain from speaking their mind. This, however, is not the case for Peter Gray, as he rails against needy students and
“The End of the College Essay” by Rebecca Schuman examines the struggle of the common college essay. I agree that the college essay is a hassle to the student and the professor because the student spends so long only to receive negative feedback from the professor. I do not believe every essay results in this, although from my past experiences that has been the outcome. Mrs. Schuman states the negative effects of essays by saying “Most students enter college barely able to string three sentences together—and they leave it that way, too.” I appreciate when I able to get knowledge from a class and able to get constructive criticism from my professor. Ms. Shuman brings an excellent point that will improve this system by implementing only written
Paraphrase: Author Malcolm X empathizes that his manifestation of reading is what accurately set him free from the bindings of imprisonment. Analysis: There are many debilitative distractions in today’s society that hinder students from receiving an education.
