Political Argumentative Research Essay My cynical American History teacher in high school really wanted to reinforce the idea of researching and sympathizing with viewpoints we are not accustomed to. Since we attended a private liberal school where nearly everybody supported Hillary for the 2017 American Election, our teacher offered us the essay option to dive into a Trump-supporters perspective. This essay would require finding proper conservative sources and arguments as well as being able to contrast them against liberal rhetoric. The main goal of this assignment was to ensure that we could see another perspective, even if it was against our primary education. To complete my research, I mostly relied on web sources as they were the
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
Ever wonder about real life lessons and what comes with having them, well the essay you 're about to read will teach you about them. First of all many lessons from older times have been taught today in school, some may not have been. To kill a mockingbird is a great lesson that teachers shouldn 't teach today for example the book has old fashioned and very sophisticated writing like on pg(31) “Jems free dispensation of my pledge..”, what high schooler in 10th grade is going to know what that word even means.If teachers are going to teach a lesson to their students then the kids should actually be able to understand the writing. Another example why to kill a mockingbird shouldn 't be taught in schools today is because kids would read this book and most likely not even be able to relate to the book, the whole racism thing we wouldn 't understand mainly because in our times everyone is treated the same, color doesn 't matter. Back then it was a big deal, we didn 't grow up in those times how on earth could we even understand what that sort of thing is like.
Overall I believe that the poor grade I received in this test is due to the fact that I didn't double check my answers and read carefully even though I had plenty of time to do so.It waqs a very poor decision on my part but I learned from it and in the future I will make sure that I double check all of my answers and that I read very carefully all of the questions and think throughly my response. My first wrong answer was number 6, it asked about the what group was overlooked in criminal researched but it was indeed the fastest growing majority in prison. I answered asians because I didn't remember reading this information in the book and two I focused on the part that said traditionally overlooked so I thought a race that may be overlooked
When I first read the story, it was very slow. The way it started in the first chapter did not really catch my attention, and it is also because I am not into war stories. Usually when I read books, it would immediately catch my attention, in which this book has not. Another key factor that I did not like about this book is that there should be more fighting scenes, or more experiences. A good fight scene between the soldiers and the Vietnam people would have catched all of our attention, because everyone likes a good fighting description.
Spring of 2014 I started my college career by enrolling at Highline College in Des Moines and take Highline’s placement testing. I scored significantly lower in math than what I had in high school, but I scored into college level English. I was highly discouraged with my math scores, I made excuses why I got those scores, blamed how long the test took, blamed how early it was but, after I calmed down and took the time to really look at the reason why I got the score that and realized It was because of my choice not to study beforehand. There understood that I wasn’t ready for college level math and where I placed was where I needed to start at if I wanted to start my college education with a solid foundation in mathematics. In Fall 2014 I began my first quarter as a Highline
In middle school, I took part in an essay competition where we had to write about one of our strongest role models—who they were, what they did, and how they had influenced us. Other students wrote about Eleanor Roosevelt, Amelia Earhart, Rosa Parks, George Washington, etc. I, the youngest of five sisters and one of the quietest people in the school, chose Harpo Marx. I did not win the competition—to be honest, my essay wasn’t very good, and I knew that, even at the time. I had bigger, better things to worry about, though.
Looking back through my days of writing in high school there was a lot I did not understand about the writing process. My writing was much unstructured and overall very poor compared to what it is today after this class. I believe that I have always been a good writer I just have not had the tools and knowledge to create a well written and knowledgeable paper. This course has helped me to meet the learning outcomes of learning to conduct factual research, making original and unbiased papers, writing different genres of papers in a professional way, correctly implementing the academic writing process, learning proper grammar and mechanics, and implementing critical thinking skills into my drafts. Essay three was the essay that helped me to
Surely getting international level education which provides you with a foreign certificate has an extortionate price, but my family enrolled me in an international school starting first grade. I cannot recall how exactly I learned to read in my early stages of education, but I remember that I hated it. I’ve always disliked reading, I thought it was very boring. My school mainly focused on teaching students to be proficient in English and barely met the government requirements of our first language, Arabic. One of the things I remember in my first few years of school is going to the library at the end of each week to pick up a book to be read by the help of our parents during the weekend.
I work harder than the rest of my classmates due to my limitations with my English. When everyone else in the class is chatting or on their phones, I am reading articles and learning new words. When I unexpectedly received an A in this AP class, it gave me the confidence to believe that I can actually do anything if I just put my mind into it. This motivated me to do more and accept more challenges causing me to take more AP classes to further prove myself. I am not doing this to please my 9th grade English teacher or other people.
When I thought about my essay I realized I never truly revised my essays, I just cleaned it up a little then turned it in. Making sure there is minimal grammar errors is important, because it will make it easier for the readers to understand the essay, just like the sentence and thesis errors. When I would review my drafts for each essay, I started to look harder for these errors with each essay as the class progressed. I started to find more and more errors that I know I would not have found in the beginning of this class. There is an article that helped me learn to truly revise my essays, the title is, “Revision Strategies of Student Writers”, it is by Nancy Sommers.
Research shows that the articles were wrong. of the inaccuracies and how they were wrong. In place card F it says, “New England kids get no education in school. It’s not true, because most people in New England learned to read and write. They also had good educations in math and reading.
The War of 1812 I believe that the war of 1812 was a non-sense war regardless of their differences that they had to begin with. The British won by large, for the simple reason the United States were not prepared to fight with a more powerful Britain. To fight Britain was not only unnecessary; it was also a fight that the United States was going to lose. The British had a much larger concern in their hands. In France, Napoleon was one of the greatest generals and warriors ever.
In English III we have had to read some old time stories and I wasn 't excited about it but, I feel like reading “The Crucible” and Billy Budd have helped my reading skills. Before I had this class I would look at old english and freak out and run but now I can understand it. Reading “The Crucible” has taught how powerful lies and manipulation is. There wasn 't any witches, Abby was just crazy. In this class we did a bunch of no red ink and let me say that I hated it but it helped me with constructing sentences and grammar.
He lets us know the other side of Washington, yes, he’s a great war General but he is not a great tactician or strategist. I thought it was clever because everyone thinks of Washington as being a perfect figure but instead McCullough describes him in a more realistic
