Being logical is important to Baron as he professed his purpose that not everyone is capable of writing. Historical figures such as Martin Luther reasoned that “you just read one good book, which you can read over and over-the gift that keeps on giving-not a lot of bad books that will just fill your head with error just to confuse you”(Baron 709). If a book is exceptional, it should make its readers read it over and over again. This is a topic that is endangered when too many books or materials exist. The issue of unimportant logic comes into play when too much is created.
In this essay, it says that Samuel Eliot Morison wrote about how important learning history is, “So, too, we ought to read history because it breaks down dividers between the disciplines of science, medicine, philosophy, art, and music, which is all part of the human story.” I find it truly fascinating how much one can learn all from studying history. This point could go along with the culture and society theme. In each subject that goes along with history, there are different cultures that make its background. Since they all go into history, this shows that history is full of different cultures and
This exhibits a tone in which Dunning is trying to get his readers to realize that people need to accept the fact the can’t become know-it-alls (competent/proficient/use thesaurus) on all the materials of this world. For the benefit of all, including oneself, it is okay to say, “I do not know” and accept the fact that one may need to study more in-depth on the subject matter. By using these examples and persuasive language, he is able to draw
However, the author used one anecdote to build up his theory and then continued searching deeper till he was able to find two more examples to anchor his point of view. With the lack of ethos as a rhetorical appeal or credible statistics, the author chooses to present the topic from a very personal perspective. In addition, an argument is normally discussed from different point of views. The author should have considered including counter-arguments and refuting them to make his article more
The activities that we did in class helped tie in the lessons with what we learned in our homework. The ones that I really got the most information from was when we would pair into groups and Look at documents. The first day of class, when we did that for the first time gave me an idea on what the class would be like. Not just learning about history, but also learning about what we can take from the history. When we took the documents I thought I wouldn’t be able to identify, I was able to at least tell from what time period that they were from.
I would like to learn why there were so many of these Crusades and if they were necessary. I will read my book and research online to get the information I need. I have every intention to improve my skills as a historian when going about this research topic. REVIEW OF PROCESS During the research topic I learned the ability to demonstrate an understanding of how and why historians
If I teach English someday, I want my students to learn how to express themselves when they write. It would be exciting to be able to sit down and read my students papers. After we constructed our essays, we had to complete a peer review activity. I enjoyed helping people look over their essays and give them suggestions on how they could improve their essays. The peer review activity made me open my eyes and see that I enjoy helping
Another thing that makes it difficult for me as a writer is that I am not good at getting the readers attention and having him hooked on to my work. This is how this chapter could help me in English class and how it can make it difficult for for others, including myself
Books can create portals to different life experiences and encourage reading. A few schools and libraries have challenged the educational value of some books, however, therefore leading them to eventually be prohibited in a particular place. Each reason may be different depending on the book and the location of the exclusions. Books are icons of literature and their value should outshine the occasionally offensive topic. Be that as it may, there are multiple reasons why books should be taught and included in a curriculum.
¨The school board agreed and removed the book. Other parents sued the school board arguing that the book should stay in the school 's library¨ (Brenyo). The school and parents are conflicting on the matter of right or wrong, which is very debatable as each side has their own reason. “It is true that a plethora of sites on the web contains offensive, sexually explicit and pernicious material that many parents do not want their children to see, yet educators know that the web can also be used as a tool to help students gain the most up-to-date information on topics they are studying” (Meeder). When restricting access to information, even with positive intentions, it gets in the way of learning.
