If they talked at all it was to each other, however they were usually conversations without eye contact.

“It is a sin to write this,” so begins Anthem. But by the end of the story, Equality 7-2521 has a different moral assessment of his action. Do you think Equality’s eventual assessment of his sin is correct? Why or why not? Explain with evidence from the story.

B. Ronald’s topic interests me greatly and is relevant to the plights of the modern Native American education system. His topic expresses that he wants to analyze how Sherman put his own life experiences into the story, and how the education affected him. I think Ronald could be more descriptive with his topic and dive deeper to explain the relevance a bit better. C. The topic of this rhetorical analysis to my understanding was that Sherman was trying to express himself and to show that Native American schools fail to educate children. Unfortunately, I don’t think Ronald expressed this throughout the essay.
He also underlines that people have personal motives to accuse other because of their biases. Another example of this is in act III, when Proctor confesses to his act of adultery in order to save his wife from death, “God help me, I lusted and there is a promise in such sweat... My wife is innocent” (102). Proctor is attempting to accuse Abigail of faking all the accusations and affiliations with the devil because he knows that Abigail longs to remove Elizabeth from his life. His admission of adultery conveys his feelings of guilt and extreme love towards his wife Elizabeth.
I can agree with most part, but I have concern about persons who have been convicted of any felony. What happen when the spouse convicted a shoplift felony when he/ she was young and already received punishment under the law? To me, it doesn’t sound fair to judge someone qualification of the role base on maybe a small mistake from the pass. Also, I think there should be some kind of standard or investigation to decedent’s family on moral turpitude.
Jeff Jacoby provides a strong argument in “Bring Back Flogging”, suggesting that we should adopt a few of the punishments of the Puritans. This argument is built on logical appeal, emotional appeal, and his own personal credibility as a writer.

In Addition, he uses ethos, or emotional appeal to force the reader to think about what they believe is morally worse. In “Bring Back Flogging”, Jacoby says Puritan forefathers punished crimes with flogging, including whipping and branding; however, in current times we tend to put a person in jail, no matter the crime.
Carole J. Gallagher wrote about the history of standardized tests in a 2003 paper for Education Psychology Review, which included Mann’s goal to seek and reproduce better teaching strategies which enables all children to have a level playing ground. Mann believed children should use written test to demonstrate what they have learned and hold schools accountable.

Therefore more testing had to be done.
