Continuing Academic Success Bruno Lopez GEN/201 11-17-2014 Justin Lafeen Continuing Academic Success While being responsible for our academic success, prioritizing work to achieve goals can be valuable to students without a success driven mindset. Responsibility and action along with ethics help set the path for proper results and set standards for academic achievement. As I explore
In the same article, Elizabeth St. Pierre provides what I consider to be a systematic process to writing; she posits that, “writing is thinking writing is analysis, writing is indeed a seductive and tangled method of discovery” (p. 967). So, throughout the process of writing these assignments,
I entered my first-year college composition course believing I was equipped with the knowledge, skill, and ability to write an efficiently researched and well-organized essay. In high school, I learned how to create the traditional five-paragraph paper with its introduction of a thesis, explanation of that claim through three sections riddled with supporting quotes, and conclusion that restated the author’s substantiated statement. This was the prescribed formula I had learned and grown accustomed to using for book reports, compare-and-contrast papers, and research essays and, from my bestowment of high grades and praise, I’d never thought to question or deviate from its pattern. When I attended my first college writing class, I thought
Joseph Williams and Lawrence McEnerney, in the third chapter of Writing in College, offer strategies for revising a paper, including suggestions regarding the point (or thesis), the organizational structure of the a paper, the evidence, and the attitude of the argument as a whole. The first step of the revision process “is intended to ensure that the beginning and end of your paper cohere with each other” (14). To accomplish this first step, Williams and McEnerney recommend isolating the point in the introduction and conclusion, and ensuring these sections communicate the same argument. Williams and McEnerney also suggest two different methods to communicate a point: point-first, in which the introduction contains a full statement of the argument
They Say I Say preface and introduction explain how this book is going to educate us and how we should exercise different writing ideas as students. It discusses how the book is going to help us look at different writing methods like templates. The prefaces’ main topic is templates and
Video 2 Commentary: Now 5 weeks into the semester, students learned to write an organized essay using textual evidence in an analysis. While they conceptually understand picking meaningful textual evidence and develop that evidence by advancing to deeper inferential warrants and backings with logical connections, implications and consequences, their writing demonstrates superficial inferences and shallow logical connections. As I have explained to the students, the warrants and backings are their thinking and not paraphrasing the texts. I knew, because of their struggling academic history in underclassmen English classes, these seniors don’t make their thinking public. With student thinking confidence, I could address their writing.
In the fourth chapter of Writing in College, Joseph Williams and Lawrence McEnerney recommend final revisions to make in a paper. Firstly, Williams and McEnerney describe how to polish the introduction and conclusion. The introduction should present “something . . . puzzling, not entirely understood, perhaps overlooked, not noticed, undervalued”
Bérubé begins his article by using an analogy to explain how he wants his students to write their essays. The analogy is about students summarizing their essays and people watching sports. He argues that most students summarize when writing essays instead of analyzing them. He describes how when people watch sports they don’t summarize how the game is being played, instead, they analyze it, which is what he is wanting from his students. Bérubé encourages his students to write a thesis that attracts attention and is controversial, which is similar to a sports commentary. He also explains that they shouldn’t waste space by trying to write impressive introductions. Instead, they should be straight forward in their introductions. Bérubé’s article
As the first step of the intelligence cycle, collection provides the basic information required in a certain instance. To determine a location on a possibly high value target sought after for a bombing, collections is needed to provide intelligence to fill the information gap. Collection comes after the consumer has determined the required information needed. (FAS.org, 2015) The process of collection begins when the information needed and where to uncover said information is determined. With this information, the mediums needed to accomplish the task can be determined and start the intelligence cycle. The collections process is important to the intelligence cycle as a whole. Without collections, the intelligence gaps cannot be filled. In order to provide the intelligence needed to be analyzed, collections have to obtain the necessary
Evidence Pillars Strong writing needs strong support. In academic writing, a convincing claim has to be supported by many pieces of evidence. However, having evidence is not enough. The evidence must be comprehensively analyzed and connected to the claim. In essence, each piece of evidence acts like a pillar that supports a building. The stronger the pillars are, the more robust the building becomes. During Writ 1, I have felt that my writing was weak from not truly understanding how to use evidence. In my earlier essays, I did not thoroughly analyze my evidence because I thought it could explain itself. I have learned that each piece of evidence needs a complete introduction, analysis, and conclusion. I have worked on improving the treatment
1.Starting with a hook. In order to persuade readers to continue reading, an effective introduction needs to grab their attention. To do this, an introduction can use one or more of several techniques-it can start with an objective statement, make reference to a surprising scene or situation, start with rhetorical question, start with a problem that needs a solution. The second sentence should tell the reader more about the topic without providing background information, which leads to a thesis statement. Usually, the introductory paragraph gives the main idea and the supporting arguments of the essay, each of them will become
1. The purpose of a dedicated writer is to get their point across to the reader. Writing an attractive introduction, it’s a must in order for the writer to capture the readers interest, therefore these three reasons always need to be consider by the writer in order to have their paper read by many.
Methods of Data Collection Obtaining fake news data sets can be very challenging due to three reasons. First, deciding whether a news post on social media is fake news or not is highly subjective. Second, Fake news stories and fraudulent accounts are routinely taken down by Social Media platforms like Twitter and Facebook, which makes it hard to get historical data about fake news posts.
The research topic has been selected, the testable research question is developed, research on the topic has been found, a literature review is completed, and a decision has been made on the research design. Now, one of the most important steps in the research process needs to be accomplished and that is the collection of data. Notwithstanding the research project and whether the method of research is whether qualitative or quantitative, data must be collected. Data collection is essential whether the method of choice is a mail survey, a telephone survey, an interview, an experiment, field research, or secondary data analysis. Data collection is an important aspect of any type of research study. Inaccurate data can impact the results of a study and ultimately lead to invalid results. During the data collection step, a significant amount of time, energy and attention is required. In order to ensure the data collection process is valid and successful, one should adhere to the four steps involved: (1) the construction of a data collection form which is used to organize all data that is collected; (2) the designation of the coding strategy used to represent data on a data collection form; (3) the collection of the actual data; and (4) entry into the data collection form (Salkind, 2012).
