I truly enjoyed taking the English 1302 class with you, thanks for making this class easy and not stressful. During my High School year, I hated to take English because my grammar is bad, however, this class has allowed me to stress less over my grammar and focus more on my arguments. In addition, every discussion and journal have helped me learned how to think critically when analyzing poems and stories. Thanks for being an attentive professor. Which essay was your strongest?
What seemed to be the easiest part was the outline to help my assignment. It helped me aligned the context of what the author was saying also helped place the various themes into context as well. Rejecting the material was a bit difficult, as it was getting to the point where I was trying to use as much as I could and found very
The piece was also exceptionally good because the author provided just enough detail to help the reader envision the story as they read. I also enjoyed how he allowed the reader’s imagination to fill in some of the blanks he left open, but tamed how wild the reader’s imagination got by directly telling or hinting as to what happened between the father and his
I would give his story of Christopher Columbus and the New World because I felt he approached this topic fairly well and his sources were reliable and credible. I learned about Christopher Columbus in high school and was also exposed how Christopher Columbus is not the heroic adventurer we all make him to be and learned how he mistreated and imprisoned numerous Indians because of greed. I feel like this description made by Howard Zinn is accurate and I would agree with Zinn’s approach compared to other history books I have read. The reason I would agree with Zinn and his approach because I feel his approach accurately depicts what happened and by using sources from Christopher Columbus and Bartolome De Las Casas it helps showing two sides of what happened to the Indians. Bartolome takes on the side of the Indians, whereas Christopher Columbus takes on the side of the Spanish
It makes them feel differently upon finishing the book. They will also feel like the book speaks to them because it is so easy to relate to. Even a reader who has read a certain vintage novel many times before, they will still cherish every moment they get to flip through the pages. In Dashiell Hammett 's The Maltese Falcon one does not feel that way. The book doesn 't make the reader feel differently or teach the reader anything.
Plus, the narration of Jed, I like how he’s knows the facts but still wonders about if it is really true or not and that he’s the only one who feels different about the situation. Which in my opinion makes it more interesting. These are some of the reasons why I like the book and reasons why you should read the book sometime in the
This book is written very simply and is easy to follow. In a way, it is un-teaching of sorts. This book depicts many of the decisions that we make, in particular, ones that are mundane, that have kept us from being our best selves and explains why these decisions are wrong. It also enlightens the reader (and writer) on how to shift behaviors to decrease fear
Thoreau had studied many subjects and languages such as Italian, French, Spanish, German, and English. Though Thoreau was not excited to be going to Harvard, he appreciated having the privilege. Edgar Allan Poe, on the other hand, was poor and had less of a third of money to attend college. Luckily Edgar had someone who always had his back, his name was Allan. Allan was there for Edgar at all times, though sometimes he did not approve of Edgar’s decisions, Allan supported him.
I found the My Story assignment to be a fascinating one. I thought it was really interesting to get a closer look at how my fellow classmates defined themselves and what led them to their definition. The assignment allowed me to uncover another side of the people in the class that I didn’t know too well, but also it allowed me to see another perspective on my friends. The assignment is proof that even though people claim to know one another, they only know the information that they’re given, and that the information is usually only a fragment of the entire story. This idea of seeing an entire person’s story is what made the assignment so enjoyable, and even though I had a hard time coming up with my own narrative, it was still interesting to
3. A. The title of the book fits very well with the story. It is an easy to read book with a good clear as no boring passages, but not exciting. The piece when Mr. Jones and his workmen coming back to the farm to take it back, I found one of the most exciting moments from the book.
Davis 's way of writing The Return of Martin Guerre is very easy to read. Davis says in On the Lame, a response to critic Robert Finlay 's review of the book, that she wanted it to read like a mystery novel for all readers. Davis backs up what shes says with historical facts and does ask questions on chronological events. Such as when the real Martin leaves, Davis states that it would be interesting if Martin went to his ancestral home or not after stealing from his father to escape. Davis does not spend a lot of time on the topic, but spends enough to make it interesting and remind the reader that these were real thinking people all those centuries ago.
Early in the 19th century, while the rapidly-growing United States expanded further into the South, white settlers faced what they considered an obstacle. This area was home to the Cherokee, Creek, Choctaw, Chicasaw and Seminole groups. These Indian nations, in the view of the settlers and many other white Americans, were in the way of progress. Eager for land so they could raise cotton, the settlers pressured the federal government to take or steal Indian territory. Andrew Jackson, from Tennessee, was a forceful leader in the Indian removal.
During my time in high school, I would get Bs and Cs, but now at Brookdale, I am getting grades I could only dream of and also enjoy learning athte same time. For example, the ALP was tough at first but during all the journals, the freewrites, and the essays were really were not so bad and they were easier because I paid attention to my professor on writing better and to make my emotions on paper,. To summarize how Brookdale was a good choice for me was I met good people, the courses, less money to spend, has a great hands on learning experience, and getting good grades. For all the new students in the ALP, learn and enjoy being in that program because that program really helped me learn two English courses in one semester so that
The entire assignment was basically creating a presentation on a genre we found on our own to show our understanding of the concept. At the beginning of this class I thought that all of the writing assignments were going to be extremely hard, but after this assignment I realized that these assignments really aren’t going to be too difficult. I think this is due to the Writing as a Process SLO and that fact that it really helps break things into easy understandable parts that flow into one another. I’m glad this was the first assignment because it helped me get a good foothold of what this class is going to be without being too
