These quotes are motivational. After all the quotes, there is also a second half of this book called a “Friendship Book”. In this book, you write your thoughts, favourite quotes and compliments to your friends, or even problems/things you want to talk to them about. You pass this book from one friend to another each day; and they write what they wish. I included this because sometimes you’re too nervous to talk to a friend about what is bothering you and so instead you could write it to them so they too understand.
As a writer I know that it is necessary to take others ' feedbacks as a reflection of my writing process. Throughout the semester, I take my peers ' comment very seriously because it is the only way to know how good my writting skill is, how professional I am, and what kind of flaws I need to fix. I have used those comments intensively to fix my Issue Proposal essay, as well as my Exploratory essay. I believe that those comments are the reasons help my paper more compelling and effective. One thing I notice is that the comments remind me the errors that I have overlooked.
The essay, On Laziness, by Christopher Morley, portrays his argument of why laziness is often the key to being successful. In his opening sentence, he starts by explaining how he intended to write an essay but was simply too lazy to do do. The purpose is already being expressed through his use of satire. This helps the audience apprehend how he’s portraying his meaning through his own writing style, which includes theoretical irony, satire, and use of persuasion. The use of actual laziness used to write this essay made the readers ponder and question what he was trying to say.
He feels struggled. He had to work harder and received a failing grade on the first paper. However, he said “I was both devastated and determined, my not belonging was verified but I was not ready to be shut down.” He decided to search the school’s library to look up the publishing’s of his Professor. He would write his paper, research the Professors writing style, and then revise his own writing. He finds success in this strategy but still struggles with feeling “foreign” and isolated.
He argues that “changes in grading have had a profound influence on college life and learning” (2). He utilizes tools such as rhetorical situations and rhetorical appeals to persuade his audience. Overall, 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 change. The main topic of the article is how grade inflation is not helping students and is a detriment to their future.
It does play the alphabet on a different proportional level by repetitive scenes of people going over the letters which is imperative to show the persistence use of the sequence as his primary and sole mode of communication. But the frustration that Bauby encounters and highlights in the book turns into effortless convenience in the
This is discouraging people to want to voice their opinions and comment agreeing or disagreeing with what was posted. I don 't find this annoying, I like reading my friends profiles and looking at their pictures, it makes me feel like I can always keep in-touch with them no matter how far away I am. The "good" writing is short and rarely ever posting, they are well written and interesting. The "bad" writing is too long, spelling mistakes, grammar mistakes and posts that are just annoying. It really depends on the reader and what they think of the post.
Those that write about themselves tend to get caught up in the emotional experience and wish to create a positive biography that they would not mind sharing with friends, family, and a potential employer. Often, a positive biography rarely works. It is the controversial mistakes that lead to popular articles. Just think about writing a perfectly flowery article about your background. Now, think about the future.
A paper that fails to get proofread and edited is a paper that is destined for failure. Proofreading and editing is a very difficult task to accomplish. Trust is placed upon the task, as well as the person executing it. Nonetheless, it must be done, ideally from a non-biased individual. Proofreading is used to check for grammatical and spelling errors, while editing is the process of fine tuning the content and improving sentence fluency ("Editing and Proofreading").
While writing this paper I learned how to self-correct mistakes that I would make a lot throughout my paper. One of my biggest writing errors that I have now learned to fix is comma splice errors, which is when I incorrectly connected my sentences with only a comma. This paper also made me realize that in the first draft you can forget a lot of details that you think you put in. Then when spending the time to revise you can make your paper more engaging to the audience by adding the missed details. When finished with this paper it made me realize that I need to work on my lead-ins and thesis at the beginning of my paper to grab the reader and tried to improve this with each of my papers that followed.
Furthermore, don’t be afraid to write more. Writing more than one draft gives you the opportunity to fix any problems and to analyze where the essay isn’t working. In addition, it would be preferable to type your essay instead of writing it out because it save you a tremendous amount of time, avoid hand cramps, and many writing programs like Word or Grammarly can point out your grammar mistakes with a push of a button. Also, don’t
Shakima Gaither - She needs to be monitored for following through on scripts. She tends to take short cuts to end calls quickly. She is doing much better with following the NAPE, but that’s because she knows supervision is close by. She does forget procedures on JPM prayer and UL. She could be quizzed on JPM prayer on how to handle certain calls.
Yemisrach Reta ENG 121-340 Professor Ashley Waterman 11 pril 2017 Rhetorical Analysis of the Essay “Is Google Making Us Stupid” In “Is Google Making Us Stupid?” Nicholas Carr uses some evidences in his argument in order to convince the idea of the other people . I believe Carr’s argument is effective because he starts explaining how he feels when he is reading a book and immersing himself in a book. However now, because he uses Internet a lot, he loses his focus of attention after reading some pages. He compares about the past reading ability with the present like “The deep reading that used to come naturally has become a struggle” (Carr 57). Carr also tells that he is not the only one who is getting a trouble with reading.
What is exactly fallacy of ambiguity meaning as many people questions within their mind? In the book called “Thinking Critical Thinking and Logic Skills for Everyday life” by the author Judith A.Boss, the definition of fallacy of ambiguity is an unclear arguments or phrases with various definitions and grammatical structure which it does not support the conclusion. The concept is trying to say that people who has poor communication skills and language many fallacies. For example, Professor Raiff shows a picture and ask if the students can recognize what fallacy it is; one the image is on a teacher who told one of his student, “No, I said summarize the book…”. So, the student basically opens the textbook and flips it around to show the teacher; because of, the communication language is not clear and making sense enough for the student to understand how the teacher wants it to be summarized.
I would be pretty upset if someone plagiarized my ideas and received all the credit. I believe that is how most writers would feel. DelGuidice (2015) believes Turnitin can be a teaching tool to help students learn from their plagiarizing mistakes. DelGuidice feels students do not realize they plagiarize. She explains Turnitin allows students to learn what they did wrong, how to revise it and, hopefully increasing their skills in critical thinking, research, and
