In conclusion, Rojstaczer is effective in utilizing rhetorical situations, ethos, and pathos in his article. However, he is ineffective in using logos to persuade his audience on why grade inflation is wrong and is need of their participation to initiate
There comes a time in everyone 's life when a fake doctors note is very appropriate. I am sure that you 've used a fake note to get out of school assignments or work. Believe me, composing a note takes a bit of strategy. However, most people simply sit down and start writing something that sounds like it might have been composed by a real doctor. Often, the excuses they write are very lame.
I wrote this book because teachers sometimes neglect our right to rest and leisure when they give overflowing amounts of homework which is against article 24 of the universal declaration of human rights. Thank god for SS! My book provides acceptable reasons on why students shouldn’t be given homework. In fact, they are backed up by science and research which makes my work credible. If you guys are curious on what makes my work so
My Reflection of Real Talk for Real Teachers Real Talk for Real Teachers written by Rafe Esquith has been thought provoking as well as entertaining to read. I have learned a great deal from reading this book and I hope to implement a few of his ways in my future classroom. I can relate too many of the stories that have been told in this book because this is real life in a school environment. I would like to break my summary down chapter by chapter.
Before the group discussion, I believed that the following statement: “Fortunately, I happen to be rebellious in nature and enjoy the challenge of disproving assumptions made about me” (Tan, 5), is significant because it shows a problem with our society. Which, according to Amy Tan pushes Asian students into math and science fields (Tan, 5). This statement also makes the reader consider the potential outcome of a less rebellious Amy Tan, which could have resulted in her abandoning what she loves and continuing into a math or science field. Furthermore, the statement forces the reader to ask questions such as the following: if she was less rebellious where would she be now or what would I be reading if she hadn 't gone on to write this essay.
An Illegal but Helpful Alternative The illegal market of human organs is a helpful and life-saving alternative for many patients seeking an organ they need to replace. For many patients in need of an organ, time and money are always a nuisance. In many occasions, patients would spend their life-savings in dialysis treatments and their time in the organ transplant waiting list, only to have no benefit at all. The illegal organ market can decrease the time patients spend in the waiting list, the price of organ transplants outweighs the price of dialysis treatment in multiple months, and it would help donors who are struggling economically.
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 went away without realizing the misconception I had introduced to the learners. I then returned and used my misconceptions as a starter activity, only to find some learners challenging me as to why we breathe in other gases aside from oxygen. Vygotsky’s theory shows that as a teacher, you can encourage and facilitate classroom learning for pupils to build up on abstract ideas over a period of time. This will help to identify any misconceptions along the way too. (Vygotsky 1978)
During our phone conversation you indicated that you have reached out to Danielle Stokes regarding my placement meeting the criteria of the curriculum. If you could share any outcomes of that phone conversation with me, I would appreciate it. I have to admit that I am frustrated and find it unjust that my placement is being called into question and with the responsibility of my field placement choice being placed upon for me for not knowing the class expectations prior to accepting the placement when the placement was approved by the school and by placement specialists who are aware of the foundation year expectations. While, I am frustrated, I will move forward in a positive manner as I enjoy my placement and feel I will grow professionally
. Over these past few weeks, we have read and analyzed the writings of several authors who discuss the topics of intelligence and education, and how knowledge can lead to freedom in various ways. Two of the authors we’ve reviewed are Carol Dweck and Howard Gardner. While each author researched different aspects of intelligence in education, both authors support the idea that having at least some autonomy in education is beneficial to students. These are notable scientists, and while I would never presume to discredit their research, my personal experiences with student-guided education have led me to believe that the way these theories are put into practice often harm students rather than benefit them.
Years of dedication and hardwork, stolen and claimed as someone else’s work. In the movie, The Words, the story revolves around the main character, Rory Jansen, a writer struggling to become successful.

Susan Blum's article, "Academic Integrity and Student Plagiarism: A Question of Education, Not Ethics" focuses on the reasons behind students' lack of academic integrity. First, Blum believes institutions treat plagiarism as a crime or as an immoral act but neither method is effective. The author thinks students place their personal priorities over honor codes and don't take rules concerning plagiarism seriously (Blum). This means students would rather help their friends cheat than do the right thing. Second, Blum thinks teachers struggle to teach the complex skills needed for citation.
The exploration of one’s self is very crucial to becoming the person you want to be. There are many factors that contribute to this and the most important ones are experiences from everyday life. Jonathan Lethem’s essay “The Ecstasy of Influence: A Plagiarism” and Andrew Solomon’s “Son” delve into the idea of taking outside sources to create art and ultimately ourselves with that inspiration. Lethem’s essay helps one to understand what it means to choose ourselves because people are almost like a representation of art. We can’t truly become ourselves through a void but rather in chaos when we can find the things we like and don’t like and transition from there.
"Academic Intergrity represents the core of Grand Canyon University" which is a great foundation for students and faculty to live by. Intergrity grows within a person and in my opinion that determines if you are a tustworthy person. Having academic intergrity helps with preventing plagiarism.
