Louv envisions what the future will be like if people continue to become more separate from nature. THis make his writing effective because it makes the reader ponder long term. By actually presenting the vision the vision he has to the readers, Louv makes the idea of this happening more real to them. The possibility of this actually happening provides a sort of reality check for the readers and makes them ponder over the topic even more. Louv develops his argument by first making the reader think and then presenting his idea on the idea at
In the reading he says “I’m trying to look on the bright side” he is using this imaginative world to help him get through a really tough time within his life. This is an example of changing the situation. B. Based on Critchley’s article humor functions as anti-depressant by allowing the cognitive relation to, oneself and the world. “Humor has the same formal structure as depression but it’s an anti-depressant”.
In order to get the audience to believe in his lessons, Shepard addresses the audience with rhetorical questions that make them ponder their future and their work ethic. He brings the audience into the future, sixty years from now, and asks if they would be “proud of those last sixty years” (12) or if they would be mad that they “could have done a little more?” (13). In doing so, Shepard makes the audience examine if they’re going to appreciate their accomplishments. This kind of reflection makes the audience more likely to hold on to Shepard’s lesson because they face negative future consequences. Therefore, the audience will become more self reliant.
School Wide Writing Project Former superintendent, Lawrence B. Shlack argues in his article, Not Going to College is a Viable Option, that too many students believe that going to college is the only option after high school in order to be successful. The main purpose of this article is to convince students to be less narrow-minded on the topic of post-high school decisions and effectively provides the reasoning behind his logic and provides alternatives. As a retired superintendent, Schlack proves that he has sufficient credibility and knowledge of high school students and what most of them are thinking. The use of pathos and ethos combined with his credibility appeals to the readers strongly by making the article relatable for most high schoolers. Knowledge and credibility on the topic along with emotional and logical appeals made Schlack’s article’s persuasion effective.
This is what Bohm does through his instructions on how to listen freely. David Bohm takes the ability to hear and molds it into something active, something for people who desire more to actively seek out. Bohm is turning his readers’ heads away from the cave wall of shadows and toward the bright sun. Plato would agree with Bohm’s idea of listening freely and listening actively because he believed that achieving the light of education was an active process, one that a person had to pursue by turning away from ignorance and toward enlightenment. Plato would ultimately agree that for thoughtful communication to commence, listening freely is necessary; he would essentially agree with the same argument in regards to his writing, and the efforts that are necessary to reach
Sternberg remarked that the “demands of the field bear little or no resemblance to the demands or the training that is needed in order to enter the field”. I fear that we may be extinguishing our students passion for certain fields by having unrealistic expectations (some of which are beyond our control) of our students in teaching some subjects. While I applaud the shift of focus of the science syllabus from rote learning and memory work towards a more analytical and practical approach (which is the essence of science, isn’t it? ), I wonder how many science teachers have actually fully utilised the freedom of the white space allowed to getting students to be engaged in creative work that really matters? I often hear of teachers’ complaints about there being no room for creative work in the science curriculum as, at the end of the day, students (and to a certain extent, teachers too!)
Through the attempt of writing these personal essays, with the help of my teacher and the materials made available to me, I can affirmatively say that I feel more confident as a writer and as an editor. I say that because I feel self-aware to an extent to be able to see the major flaws in my personal essays and being able to edit them to produce better quality writings. A significant development in my writing was to acknowledge the “Show not tell” phrase and implement it in my personal essays. This particular rule has helped me out majorly focus on deploying the five essential human senses which include sight, hearing, touch, smell and taste. Deploying this sensory language has further enabled me to “show” my audience what I intend to communicate to them.
Twelfth Night’s intricate text shows an underlying theme, the fact that you should use your mind, instead of your heart, to work through hard times. According to Daniel Kahneman, Nobel Prize-winning economist, there are two different paths your mind can take, fast thinking and slow thinking. “Your fast thinking is more affected by your emotional state,” he then goes on to say “Listening to your hear is something that will more likely hurt you than not, especially if you’re under any kind of time pressure.”(www.psychologytoday.com) Shakespeare perfectly designs his plays to show this message, but underneath all the lovey-dovey “bullshit”, excuse my language lol, he sends a real message. Shakespeare goes over the top to prove that following your heart isn’t always the best way to go about things. Shakespeare takes it to a point where the Duke threatens to kill Cesario, aka Viola, for “betraying” him to become Olivia’s lover.
If we don't do anything to identify students who are struggling and have difficulties, then it will play a part in their education for the rest of their academic careers and potentially their lives outside of academics such as in their careers and/or personal life. Currently, there are a few ways to see if children and students are struggling with mathematics and numeracy. These methods include, screenings, tests, activities that test mathematical knowledge or a combination of them. The most easiest method to administrate, but not always the most reliable method is testing (Jordan et al. 182).
I will never know I will fail or not before I do something according to my ideas, so it is important for me to try. And if I fail, failure teach me to analysis the things I do, I can learn from the particle experience about what works and what does not work. After that, I can do some adjustment in the future. Furthermore, we can also learn integrity through failure, integrity is the quality of being honest and having a high moral principle, failure teaches us to listen to others opinions and feedbacks more. People exchange ideas with others and listen to others experience can decrease the possibility to fail a task.
