There was no true exhibit to lead us to think that this was even Everett’s idea, and even if so, I believe there was miniscule strategy put behind this action. Odysseus showed, contradictory to Everett, that he is a well deserving leader.
Sophocles believes that this is at the peak of human flaws, as the predominant group of the time, Humanists, believed that humans were ingenious and walking among the gods. Sophocles decided to counter this by showing just how dangerous this kind of thinking can be, and what kind of detrimental side effects it can have on not only the perpetrator, but those around them as well. This flaw leads Oedipus to abandon his own self-control and find out more than was beneficial to him. It is shown to be a poor character trait throughout the play as he is first arrogant in the face of the oracle, Tiresias, causing himself to
Disobedience as a whole was ineffective and abysmally overrated. Let’s take empire s in general = if you spoke and rallied, congratulations, you’ve gotten yourself executed. We often look and celebrate the events where it seemed disobedience made a difference, such as the assassination of caesar, but first was there really any social and political change?
They are the goals that we cannot achieve because of all the things they have accomplished. He is stating in reality we are nothing like the Obamas. We don 't compare to them at all and the first family is not our first family because the Kardashians are much more like us then we realize. Young does a perfect job in telling us who we are like and not like. He tells us the truth.
I learned how to construct a logical argument, how to write an impassioned speech, and how to hold myself with confidence. This is where I met my good friends Zac, Sydney, and Tiarrah. I felt like I had found my place. I eventually switched into Debate and a new math class, and stopped cutting class. Since my sophomore year, I have made many more friends, learned how to write a killer 5 paragraph essay, and am now Historian in the Debate Council with many more opportunities coming.
I hAVE ALwAYS BEEN A mATh-ScIENcE girl. I sighed and sulked through classes on US History and French in eager anticipation of the formulas and applications I would be learning later in the day. I believe there are many factors which attribute to my success, two being my fascination and persistence. When I was seven I once asked what math was good for and why I should learn it. The answer I received simply does not do math justice, “One day when you’re in line at the grocery store the cashier will give you too little change and you’ll be glad you learned this.”
This week was my first week ever being in the honors service learning class. I am junior so i’ve never done this class before. In class on my first day we went around and we all did a getting to know you activity. I find these kinds of activities fun and helpful because a lot of teachers just jump into the content that we need to know for the final exam on the first day of class therefore, you don’t really get to know your classmates. I also enjoyed the strengths finder test that we did for homework one night.
Throughout my life I have struggled a great deal with reading, writing and spelling. Ten-year-old Emily would have nightmares about reading aloud in class and Friday morning spelling tests. I grew up envying my classmates who read out loud effortlessly and had finished the chapter when I hadn’t made it to the third page. Things only got worse when I arrived at high school. I was faced with a plethora of time writings and an avalanche of essays.
Rare objects are sought by many people. I became interested in challenging myself when I lived in North Pole, Alaska. When I first moved to Alaska, in the fifth grade, the students were being taught basic math. This was much simpler than the already simple algebra we were doing back in Virginia. There were not many activities to do living in Alaska, so I began to focus on my school work.
English teachers know the best ways to torture their students legally and without leaving any bruises. Throughout a student’s entire educational career, they are required to take part in some form of English class whether it is referred to as “Language arts” or sometimes “Literature”. For thirteen years, children are forced to complete the hardest assignment an English teacher can assign, writing a paper. An essay, whether it pertains to a persuasive, argumentative, or informative topic, are time consuming, tiring, and difficult to complete. Difficulties come from being unable to decide on a topic, not having enough information on a topic, and, more often than not, having a mixture of the two problems.
The dad said that he was a strange boy, he would always sit in the corner and write stuff on his desk. Creepy stuff. The next day the friends met up and he told them what his dad said. But they wondered about the creepy guy. So they went to the police station and asked the police about the creepy guy.
Joe Ramirez J.West ENGL 1301.M1 22 September 2017 Outliers Geniuses In 2008, journalist Malcolm Gladwell published the book “Outliers” a best-selling book about how we measure success as a society. In the book Gladwell discusses the different ways we measure success and touches upon common misconceptions regarding the matter of how society comprehends success. One chapter entitled “The Trouble with Geniuses, Part 1” highlights the contrast between success and Intelligence quotient, this chapter really intrigued me because Gladwell makes valid points in arguing about how a high IQ does not automatically equal success and backs up his argument by giving examples. Although some may argue that success measured through intelligence many others like Malcolm Gladwell would think otherwise since every person measures success differently in society.
In "Outliers: The story of success", Malcom Gladwell explained and gave examples of ways to be successful. There are many ways that Gladwell mentioned, such as luck, practice, background, family, and culture. There are many more of course, but I will save time. There are three of which I think are the most important, these being Intelligence, Social Skills, and Location; and these are explanations as to why I think these are the most important.
Have you ever wanted to be successful and want to know what it takes? Some people think it takes only 10,000 hours of “practice, practice, practice.” Well, I think it will take more than practice to become an expert at something; it would take talent --- and practice. Some people may believe otherwise, and think it only takes 10,000 hours to become an expert.
