The academic grades of over one million boys and girls from 30 different nations were involved in a 369 studies. The results on a meta-analysis were vigorous: Girls earn higher grades than boys in all grade levels and academic subjects including the fields where boys outperform them. One of the example is the science-related field. The study by The Voyers proves that women earn higher grades than men in different academic subject by their study that they made. Thus, it also proves that women learn better in academic settings or school than men based on getting higher grades than men in academic
By the way she weaves in the examples and quotes the reader can be insured that what they are reading is true and non-opinion based. Another basic detail that helps LaFrance gain credibility in her writing is her outside sources, in her article she uses professionals in their field that are very accomplished. So when they say, “the vast majority of the past is gone,” not only do you believe them but it gives you a sense of urgency.
Rhetorical devices in writing often can make or break an author’s work. In Barbara Jordan’s autobiography Becoming Educated she uses a wide selection of strong rhetorical strategies that further prove her point, but two in particular reinforce the story. The perspective she gives to her story and her experience draw the reader in and make the work seem more personal. At the same time that her work reads as a casual conversation, her professional diction strengthens her character. Obviously, an autobiography will use perspective in the text.
Analysis, Critics, & Suggestion The paper of Oonagh Rietman is delivering very interesting issue. Where he focused on how cultural relativist and feminist critique towards the international human right. While at the same time culture relativist and feminist quite against each other in their point of view about women.

One other thing you should know is that Ms. Aleshin expects you to read a lot of books and you have to be prepared to read everyday. One genre I urge you to read is dystopian fiction. At first I was confused as to what it was, but I ended up loving it and reading many dystopian books. An example of this genre would be Unwind, this book is dystopian and if she doesn 't introduce this to you, then remember to check this book out. Reading also helps you improve on your Ela skills, so it will never be
The use of rhetorical knowledge, critical thinking, reading and writing all are the important aspects in this course. All of which helped tremendously with becoming a more precise writer and developing my identity as a writer. In the beginning of this course we worked with different readings that were intended to challenge us intellectully. Readings such as “To see your story clearly, start by pulling the wool over your own eyes” which is found the New York Times and “All Writing is Autobiography” by Donald M. Murray where readings that were meant to be challenging yet unfamiliar to us as well. This concept helped me greatly because it proved that I can be a flexible reader.
Through my educational career, I’ve been a successful writer. I received high marks on my papers because I followed the rubrics and was eloquent. I loved complex sentences that strung my thoughts together, used adjectives to detail my stances and showcased research with commas and lists. My writing style was not conducive to public relations writing. This course required me to embrace the opposite of what I was used to and almost relearn how to write for public relations.
Again on page 177, She uses the word rank instead of bad or gross to give us that super specific thought of how dirty and smelly their clothes were. All three of these tools that Jeannette uses really helps to shape her story in a way that is understandable, flowing, and simple. Using these tool she has transformed the meaning of the story from just a boring story to a story teeming with description and fun, big words. Jeannette Walls really does help her readers get a better grip on the deep meaning of her story by using these tools. After reading The Glass Castle I am sure that I could remember this story for a while as a great story from an author that cares about helping the readers best
The infomercial is appealing to our specific audience (people who enjoy literature and fictitious novels) due to the unique combination of a service which delivers a mystery box of books to the customer fast and cheaply while also retaining the thought of the customer and their preferences. The infomercial also hosts a large basis of logos as it is assumed that people who enjoy to read are generally more intellectual. Through the effective use of “scientific data”, logical reasoning, and other aspects, the infomercial appeals to the readers watching the advertisement by emphasising that there is no better alternative than the product. Besides the logos based advertisement, the infomercial has details about how everything works and pushes for credibility with the usage of generally known authors/books to make it seem like there is no real downside to the subscription given that good books from good authors are assumed to be in the mystery boxes. The infomercial uses ethos, pathos, as well as logos in different
By doing this, the essay was very easy to follow and I was able to understand her viewpoint. She legitimized her views by bringing up the ideas of Martha Nussbaum (ethical thinking), Michael Taussig (anthropologist who defines mimesis), Walter Benjamin (observed properties of mimetic faculty), and others that validate her points. It was very helpful that she spent a few paragraphs describing her terminology in the ways that she’s utilizing the words, specifically “prosthetic memories,” empathy, and sympathy. Contrastingly to this, I felt like too much time was devoted to these explanations when the explanations were very straightforward and didn’t need to be so detailed. There is also a point of digression in how much time was spent detailing The Pianist.
Why criticize an advanced way to gather information? In fact, online reading encourages critical thinking due to a universal understanding that not everything one reads on the internet is
The ideas presented in Anabelle 's paper reflected on her understanding of Zinn 's history and brought ideas that I, personally, never thought of, which showed her critical thinking skills. She grasped the core of Zinn 's writing thoughts and contributed her own ideas, which I agreed with, and the level of vocabulary and language Anabelle used also allowed for her essay to be easily read and persuasive. I really admired her interpretations because they were accurate and I was able to tell she spent time interpretating Zinn 's words and ideas. Her use of language and certain vocabulary emphasized the points she was getting across, also her quotes. The quotes helped Anabelle 's thoughts, but she didn 't source them, which would had made her essay
In The Triumph of the Yell by Deborah Tannen, she does a great job in showing what her information showed and what it mean to her “I am not suggesting that journalists stop asking tough questions necessary to get at the facts, even if those questions may appear challenging. And of course it is the responsibility of the media to represent serious opposition when it exists, and of intellectuals everywhere to explore potential weaknesses in others '
Carr acknowledges that people read more because of the Web, but deplores that "our ability to interpret text, to make the rich mental connections that form when we read deeply and without distraction, remains largely disengaged." He states that the way we read on the internet is changing the way we think and making us less contemplative. Similarly, in “Pearls before Breakfast”, Weingarten notes that “the explosion in technology has perversely limited, not expanded, our exposure to new experiences.” We live in a time when technology can be used to replicate reality, augment reality, and create virtual reality. Technology obviously has its place, but at the same time, it can be potentially suffocating and suppressing. It is common knowledge that a significant number of people waste countless hours, forfeiting vocational and academic achievement due to digital distractions that have little or no lasting
