Schulz’s first major argument is the lack of emotion in the novel. This dispute is declared false with evidence such as Nick Carraway’s relationship with Jordan Baker. There is a lot of affection that is displayed between these characters, that help prove Schulz wrong. Also, Schulz claims the book to be too unrealistic regarding “human struggles.” What Schulz did not understand is that Fitzgerald purposely wrote the book to emphasize the “Great” in The Great Gatsby. The achievements and luxuries of the book are to be depicted, more than the strife of characters.
It is uncommon for poets to use their own experiences as a persona, but the lack of question marks in her poem suggests that the speaker in the poem may be herself as she is replaying the questions and comments that were once said to her. This shows that there is no dialogue taking place, and it gives the reader a quick rhythm when reading the poem, just like a person’s thoughts when racing. “wanda when are you gonna wear your hair down”. “wanda why ain’t you rich.” Words such as “gonna” and “ain’t” suggest that whoever asked her these questions are uneducated, and were not supportive of her attendance of college. This memory came from person who probably did not seek out an education like she did.
However, she fails to examine the reasons student loans can be advantageous, and this is problematic because there are several missing benefits including manageable reimbursement options, lower interest rates, as well as student friendly terms and conditions when compared to a standard loan. To begin, the author impressively outlines a logical reason as to why society should be liable for funding higher education. In her essay she
It is evident that Do Won Chang did not have the advantages that most successful businessmen have-- rich families, connections with other businesses, or even the opportunity to go to college. Chang’s success story negates Gladwell’s original “Matthew Effect” ideal; he endured the difficulty of starting anew in a different country while living off of minimum wage, which indicates that arbitrary factors did not play a significant role in Do Won Chang’s success. Instead, his perseverance and hard work paid off in the
Many factors influence one’s decision in doing and/or creating something, so, to what extent is it possible to still be original? Original is the idea that something was created directly by one person without the influence or imitation of someone else’s earlier ideas or work. In “Biographies of Hegemony” Karen Ho discusses the challenges that many Ivy League students face while trying to meet their institution 's expectations, as well as the heavy recruitment by Wall Street bankers on college campuses. In “The Naked Citadel” Susan Faludi, addresses the violence among students at the Citadel, as well as their lack of originality and suggests that the cause is due to the rejection of society. In “The Ecstasy of Influence: A Plagiarism” Jonathan
(Page 211, Figure one). The authors’ emphasis on “on average” is very effective at showing how their point makes sense and why it should be taken into consideration. I found the way that the authors focused on the minority more than the majority was skillfully effective at showing how some career paths do not require a college education and that the return in investment would not be worth the cost. Throughout their argument I found the writers to mostly use Logos and Ethos in their writing. The Logos is evident by the way they use statistics and the Ethos by how they state telling someone the only way to be successful is to go to college is a disservice.
It’s hard to even think about that seeing as not going to college is often seen as lazy and irresponsible, but should it be seen that way? Is college really worth it? A college education can be very valuable and useful, I will not even try to deny that, but a lot of jobs don’t require a college education. For example, I have heard a lot of my friends saying that they want to become photographers. They say that they are going to go to go to college to get a degree in visual arts and then pursue their dreams.
It wasn’t until after reading this piece several times that I began encountering flaws within her reasoning. Although I agree with Bird that college is a waste of all these for some students, I also believe that Bird does not provide strong enough evidence to persuade her readers into thinking this. First off, when choosing the material to include in her essay, Bird should have used evidence that contained more certainty in order to solidify her claim. For example, “it is difficult to assess how many students are in college reluctantly. The conservative Carnegie Commission estimates
4 In conclusion, even though some people disagree that college is worth it, I think that college is worth it if you are willing to put the effort into it and not just horse around than you should go and put in that tuition but if you’re there to horse around and you’re just there for the parties than don’t put in that tuition. College is worth it because people with a diploma that are not going to college won’t be able to experience amazing social gatherings than people with a degree, and that people with a diploma make less money than people with a
According to Sommers, the main problem today is that college students aren’t learning ethics how they are suppose to. Sommers, stated that college students debate subjects such as abortion, DNA research, and learn almost nothing what the real ethic class should be about. Ethics should be about private decency, honesty, personal responsibilities, etc. She also stated that social morality is only half of moral life; the other half is private morality. (Sommers, February 2, 1992).
However, the main factors he uses are facts and statistics, which in my opinion, are not persuasive at all, and is just information. In fact, If examples and or reasons of why not to go to college were embedded to prove his point, I would have been driven to agree with him a bit more. For example, if there were to be an emotional attention
I agree with Weissman completely. Not everyone who graduates college will obtain a significantly higher paying job. Though it is nice to think that way, it is not the reality. Most students will end up making a small amount more than, an employee with a high school diploma. The topic continues to complicate itself with the point Tiffany Hsu made.
The initial draft about Jaschik’s article “Winning Hearts and Minds in War on Plagiarism,” lacks evidence related to the author’s analysis and shows imprecise and vague information about the author’s audience and purpose. It does not indicate the year in which the article was published, which is essential to give the reader a perception of how recent the article is. The initial draft starts with a brief and vague analysis of the article’s context, what makes it seems more like a summary than an actual analysis. The topic sentence does not introduce which rhetorical choices are being analyzed and what the author wants to accomplish implementing those. On the first paragraph, the writer states “Jaschik employs illustrations in order to support his purpose of
The piece had no hook, from the beginning it lost me with the first reference of T.D. Jakes setting up his thesis statement that American essays preach. When Vincent Cunningham described how the writings are, “argumentative, Insistent, and irritating” he left out boring, which I feel best described his “What Makes an Essay American.” His use of other authors did not support his idea, because I have not read any of the works and I did not feel that the brief reference provided the support necessary. An essay in his opinion should be challenging and constructed soundly to gain the consideration and reaction of the reader. Writing is personal, each having their own method of telling a story, Mr. Cunningham did not grab me from the beginning and
