I say this because I have a very bad tendency to do this a lot. I feel like I have to let the reader know that I actually read the passage, and the way to do that is to restate the main information stated in the passage. However, after reading this passage, I have learned that there are ways to avoid this. Lastly, I find his examples very helpful. I was very unfamiliar with some of his guidelines until he explained them with examples.
This is where I learned the most about myself as both a writer and a reader. Initially, when writing my first draft, I focused on just the most prominent aspects of the article such as how Schulz framed her argument through a story and kept things factually and historically based rather than outwardly asserting her bias. Both subjects became the crux of my analysis, but my original draft lacked the analysis aspect a bit in that I had to dig deeper and provide better examples to support my stance. For example, in my original draft I focused a bit too much on bias and went to the extreme of saying that Schulz kept all bias out of her narrative and kept it completely objective. After further digging into Schulz’s background, and for what publication this article was established under, I had to rephrase this subject to acknowledge the bias but counter-argue why her credentials does not devalue the points she makes in “Citizen Khan.” I was prompted to reevaluate the phrasing and depth of the topics I addressed in my analysis by the comments on the first draft by my Professor.
It has gotten to the point where bringing technology into your home willingly has the effect of you giving up some of your freedom and right to privacy granted by the Fourth Amendment. It shouldn’t have to be this way. Technology is advancing too fast for the courts to keep up, and revisions regarding technology should be made to the Constitution to align with today’s tech-savvy society. That being said, people also need to be more aware of the technology that they are using in their everyday lives and how it can limit their individual
My previous professor was big on self-reflection. So shortly after I typed this essay I had to reflect on what I had done. Each time I have analyzed this paper I have found something new that I should have seen before, and I have learned how to improve from that point. I really don’t like now how passionate I was in my paper. It is hard when you really support something to take a step back and convey your argument clearly.
Why would economy be a drawback all of the sudden? America’s audacity comes in handy when in an emergency. When you finally call something home, you can never forget the feeling of it. Your system just wouldn’t accept it. Imagine growing up to a completely altered behavior; larger cities with new inventions.
Despite the apparent advantages of living with advanced technology, in “Sound of Thunder," Bradbury criticizes society to show that people are destroying themselves with uncontrolled technology. First, Bradbury explains the apparent advantages of living with advanced technology. He uses the setting of future society to display more developed technology; which means the readers can discover stronger or perhaps more serious effects of technology. The readers are introduced with the utility of technology when Eckels is excited about “a real time machine”(Bradbury 1). In the society where Eckels is living, humans are able to travel across time instead of being inevitable to get out of this present moment.
The story gives us such an overflow of different topics that we find it hard to search the truly main source. If it were any other book, it would have become too overwhelming for the reading but because of the extent of the story the author manages to let the topics mend over in each other without being too overbearing to comprehend all the
Though the technologies and entertainment sources of a dystopian society and modern American society appear different, there impact on the human experience and the individual’s struggle within society remains the same. In the novels Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury and Matched by Allie Condie the governments have become corrupted and changed the way
Whatever the positive change is, think about the story you started telling yourself the minute you realized you weren’t making progress as fast as you expected. Do your best to visualize the story in detail so you can better clarify what’s been really going on in your head. This is quite significant. Because the story you tell yourself in your head is often the one that gets written in reality. Sadly, I bet you fail because of this story more frequently than you realize – it likely gets in your way far more than any actual real-world obstacles you’re facing.
Baran (2012) states that “behaviour was limited by opinion leaders – people who initially consumed media content on topics of particular interest to them, interpreted it in light of their own values and beliefs, and then passed it on to opinion followed, people like them who had less frequent contact with media.” This theory can only go so far as in this day in age there are so many different mediums used to convey media information. With television, radio, newspapers, magazines, film and social media/internet they have the ability to influence the way we act dress and communicate with others. Our perception of what’s right and what’s wrong can be influenced by the type of television show we watch. An example of how powerful the media can be on peoples lives is German propaganda. Through creative film makers and enthusiastic radio personalities they were able to persuade the German men to enlist in
