Fridman develops his argument by starting off with the background of the topic, taking everyday experiences and asking readers to think about certain senerios, also comparison with others. "How long can America remain a world-class power if we constantly emphasize social skills and physical prowess over academic achievement and intellectual ability?" Fridman ends with this question He has the readers thinking about what he has said, using his point of view to over look a serious question. He also uses realistic senerios liked what the average American parent is thinking. Fridman develops his argument by putting you in the shoes of how people think.
They identified enough information to convince a reasonable person to think twice about how modern textbooks portray FDR. Some textbooks seem to be yet another instance of propaganda. The Folsom’s weave the information obtained with their personal bias; which is expected. However, if their personal bias was not woven into this book it would be more reliable. Overall, I give this book a B+ for useful and extensive content, accurately relating WW2 to FDR, and including proof of research and
Additionally, the author mentions that according to the professor’s research, the “score gap between American students and those in the highest-ranked countries” decreases by “25 percent in math and 40 percent in reading” once adjustments for the student’s socioeconomic status have been made. However, this problem is getting harder for public schools to solve as “[t]he public school population is getting poorer”. Porter then introduces Andreas Schleicher, the top educational expert of O.E.C.D who runs the PISA tests, as Schleicher firmly disagrees with Professor Carnoy’s claims. According to Professor Carnoy’s results, “fewer than 15 percent” of American students should be from families of lower socioeconomic status, but Schleicher found that “65 percent of principals in American schools say at least 30 percent of their students come from disadvantaged families”. Porter shows how Schleicher’s discoveries discredit Professor Carnoy’s, in terms of logic, and by doing so, he equalizes both sides of the debate.
Kennedy makes the most of his short and sweet speech by mixing in propaganda to illustrate how much more socially advanced America is from the other nations. His glittering generalities placed purposefully throughout the speech distract listeners from the artificial dichotomy and bandwagon inferences. Kennedy begins the first sentence of his speech with valued concepts to evoke thoughts of unification in the United States. He describes his inauguration as a “celebration of freedom” that will eventually lead to some changes (Kennedy). He presents this glittering generalities as a way to inspire the Americans and gain their support for an economically prosperous term.
Leonid's uses a simple sentence to create a feel in lines 28-30 to show he is tired of the ways nerds are treated " enough is enough." Then follows up with this sentence , " nerds and geeks must stop being ashamed of who they are." This statement shows he is taking a stand for nerds and hoping that nerds will stop being ashamed of themselves. In conclusion, Leonid uses different methods to develop his argument, some are using effective diction,comparisons,pathos, and simple sentences to create affect and strengthen his argument on America needing nerds. Leonid includes a question at the end which was very effective in his argument because it will make the audience think that its time for a change.
Although my genogram does not necessarily show the traits that my family has, I think the relationships lines demonstrate how each member behave, and it helps to distinguish types of family paradigms. When I take a look at my family genogram it is amazing to see how different are my dad side and mom side family based on family paradigm. For instance, my dad side of family follows an open paradigm where issues are resolved by means of communication and negotiation, each member are adaptable to change. In the other hand, my mother side of family follows closed paradigm where they have specific rules
Which sociological perspective do you think best explains the problem of immigration in our society? In my opinion, the conflict perspective best explains the problem of immigration in our society. Page 83 explains that “Most immigrants are motivated by the global economics of immigration-men and women will move from low-wage to high-wage countries in search of better incomes and standards of living.” Most immigrants are coming to the United States to pursue the “American dream”. That dream holds the promise of “freedom”, the freedom of choice, education, and economic opportunity; a better quality of life lived than their present state of being. This could be a personal choice of doing but for some I’d guess that it’s more of a societal choice,
James Truslow Adams stated in the epilog of The Epic of America that the dream is about a, “better and richer and fuller [life] for every man.” Money is essential to the comforts of American living, so it only seems necessary to dream of having an abundance of it. The irony is, that in the pursuit of wealth and economic stability, the risk of economic uncertainty is high. Mark Robert Rank’s Chasing the American Dream, states that “Mounting evidence indicates this economic insecurity has been on the rise, with growing number of middle and working-class Americans struggling to get by” (Source C). While this is true for some, many have also experienced significant economic gains in the past decades. Still, the dream has to be focused on something more than money - it has to have a purpose and intention greater than materialism.
Studies have shown that high amounts of student loan debt reduce a person’s chances of owning a home, getting married, having children, and accumulating wealth. With free education, Americans would become happier people and in turn, stimulate a more prosperous nation as a
