They need to look for every mistake, making sure to correct spelling, informal writings, punctuation, and grammar. In summary, just like is taught in Garrison Keillor’s “How to Write a Letter”, Richard Lederer’s “The Case for the Strength and Grace of Short Words”, and David Shipley and Will Schwalbe’s “How to Write (the Perfect) Email”, writing an effective work of literature takes time and perseverance. Planning, drafting, revising, and editing are the essential steps to an any good work. Thus, authors must thoroughly follow these four stages in order to become successful in their writing
The 1950s saw the full development of a design movement that is apparently the most critical visual design style of the twentieth century as far as its sweeping effect, its life span, and its scope of pragmatic applications is concerned. The style started in Switzerland and Germany and is often alluded to as Swiss Style, yet it is formally known as the International Typographic Style. Its strength in numerous territories of graphic design covers a twenty-year period from the early 1950s to the late 60s, yet it remains impactful up till the recent times. As Richard Hollis puts forward in his book “Swiss Graphic Design: The Origins and Growth of an International Style, 1920-1965”, the Swiss Style has vital elements that are widespread throughout
Followed by several counter arguments to why minority students have false gains when it comes to education. In his essay, Jonathan Kozol most important feature of style discourse would be length and style, because it showed that his paper had thought and quality. It gave specific evidence that helped him ultimately achieve his purpose of writing this essay. Without the length, it would have looked as though the speaker was not fully educated about his research however, Kozol could have narrowed down his argument instead of being all over the
In her essay "Does Texting Affect Writing?", Michaela Cullington presents her argument that texting does not impact formal writing written by students. She discusses the concerns presented by many people about how texting language can transfer into writing, but through the use of personal experiences and credible sources she discusses how this is not true. Her use of multiple different studies and situations help boost her argument and allow the reader to truly see how students actually do formal writing. She presents a strong argument as to why those who believe students don't have the control and knowledge to write formally, instead of with text speak, are wrong.
The analytical side to her typographic experiments, where images and text interweave and bounce off one another, and where multiple readings are deliberately engineered, is not only beautiful, but also intellectual and heartfelt. Lucille’s work exemplifies an interpretation of linguistic theory into design, where her translation of original ideas into the simple language of words and pictures, combined with her formidable skills as a form-maker, produces unforgettable works. Lucille’s approach to graphic design requires inviting all audience to join the interpretation of the design, in all of her work, including identity systems, posters, brochures and books. In other words, Lucille’s works do not belong to her. She shares her ideas with all those who see them and think about
All of these factors combine and work well together to form a well-executed argument within Cullington’s essay. Cullington begins her essay by addressing her opposition: “It’s taking over our lives” (pg. 361). She cites studies done that suggest that a decline in the quality of students’ formal writing has occurred since the advent of text messaging, and she also cites teachers who believe that their own students’ works are influenced for the worse by the students’ being accustomed to texting and using textspeak. Cullington then proposes her opposing position that the writing of students is unaffected by their use of texting and text speak. She also cites studies that support her thesis that text messaging and textspeak do not have an effect on
“Should everybody write” is the question that is argued throughout the article Should Everybody Write by Dennis Baron. Baron, an English professor at the University of Illinois, incorporates essay styled writings in correspondence to English problems faced in today’s world. His main concern in this essay is to demonstrate to his audience a proper answer to the argued statement and uses rhetorical strategies throughout his article to support his claims. The use of tone is incorporated when he discusses the context of writing history. His purpose in this article is discussed using his strong sense of logic and he also conveys to his audience’s emotions to caution them on their own writing or writing fears.
Article Analysis: The Importance of Writing Badly Bruce Ballenger’s article titled “The Importance of Writing Badly” takes a rather peculiar approach to addressing the issue of effective writing. The author eccentrically argues for the importance of ‘bad writing’ by describing different reasons to support his arguments. He argues that it is normal to apportion blames without understanding the root causes of poor writing skills. The author quotes different people who have expressed concerns about poor writing among students including his doctor. He proceeds by explaining why he would encourage his students not to concentrate on their poor writing experiences.
Neil Postman and Wendell Berry state that twentieth-century Americans are losing literacy and the ability to read and write, which weakens our ability to think for ourselves. Reading, writing, and thinking are connected through everyday life and as English speakers, it is our responsibility to preserve and correctly exercise the truth and validity of the English language. With the dependency on technology, relaxed educational standards, and even potential government control, we become stripped of our independence of thinking. With no free will to think, we are vulnerable to dominance and corruption, inability to argue complexly, oversimplification, and conformity. Neil Postman sets the scene of his essay, The Typographic Mind, by opening with an explanation of the famous Abraham Lincoln and Stephen Douglas debate.
"The biggest problem with communication is the illusion that it has taken place," -George Bernard Shaw. This quote by George Shaw, an English botanist, illustrates communication otherwise known as the act of imparting or exchanging of information or news. It is a key element of human identity which is exemplified through our literature and our own lives. Two stories we read this year for English class can also relate to communication. The Count of Monte Cristo written by Alexander Dumas, and Romeo and Juliet is written by William Shakespeare.
As I began to read in week one Unteaching the Five Paragraph Essay by Marie Foley, I was reminded of the importance of how writing lends to reading, which in turn infers absorbing the content. Writing is essential to not only education but in connecting through this form of communication as well. Appropriately, this was addressed again by John Dewy in Democracy and Education in 1916. I found it interesting that this subject matter written about so long ago is still prevalent today. I can relate to Foley description of writing in structure as being “alien” as I have found my words always flowed without structure.
Referring to an educational setting, when students are instructed to write a formal paper they often leave mistakes on their paper unknowingly or unaware of their mistakes due to the comfortability they have gained through online writing and instant correction, also known as autocorrect. Autocorrect is the software function that makes or suggests corrections for mistakes in spelling or grammar while typing. Frank Gannon captured the point concerning absence of proof reading in his piece English 99: Literacy among the Ruins by allowing the audience to visualize the decline of writing skills among youths in his college class. Gannon begins the piece by describing to the audience his new position as a college “philosopher” educating college students that were unable to learn in a higher-level English class due to the automatic assumptions that the students would be “overly challenged” (Gannon 215). As any individual would, the students in the class began to assemble into their own groups: “the bored looking girls, the jocks and the Bosnian refugees” (Gannon 216).
Our weaknesses and tendencies while composing documents are clearly revealed in the tutorial. As we compose work that frequently relies on the ideas of others, the benefits of understanding our tendencies are indispensable while avoiding plagiarism. Personally, I have decided to capitalize on summarizing and direct quotations, while marginalizing my use of paraphrases. I believe that summarizing requires more analysis of the sources intent, allowing me to effectively continue to strengthen my analytical skills. I intend to utilize short direct quotations in order to provide clarity to my perspective and analysis of the
Many designs from this movement is still been produced and widely because of their functionality and longevity.

Although there is controversy about the Bauhaus hagiographic, it cannot be denied that the Movement has a great contribution to modern Art history. Bauhaus style generally has principle of using a minimum of material or a maximum achievement. Their formal characteristics are clean lines, an impression of speed and power.
