Read Write Discover (RWD) is a free literacy tutoring program that targets students with the greatest need. In San Jose, these students have language barriers; they speak Vietnamese, Spanish, and Mandarin. As coordinator, I recruited bilingual tutors to fill these needs and assumed that my role in day-to-day tutoring ended there. I was wrong.
“Your assignment is to write a persuasive essay and present it to the class in a week. You will be graded based on how convincing it is. Today we will be choosing topics,” announced Mr. Bowerbank, my 7th grade English teacher and ruler of classroom 110. My class simultaneously groaned at the prospect of work. I simply lifted my head with intrigue as it was already May and about time we had our first essay. He then proceeded to give examples of topics we could choose and gave us some time to think before we had to tell him our topic. My classmates were already rushing to tell the teacher their idea lest someone else steal it. That meant the usual abortion, death penalty, or drug use topics were out. I really couldn't think of anything and the teacher was slowly making his way through the remaining students like an executioner beheading criminals in a line. I have always thought that he would make a marvelous supervillain if he had a curly mustache, a tophat, and a cape. Eventually my name was called. I slowly dragged myself over to his desk. Even sitting down, he still seemed to tower over me. “What is your topic Cindy?” As usual in such desperate times, my mind turned to food. “Waffles are better than pancakes.” I figured that a waffle was just a differently shaped pancake with a nicer texture. “Hmm. Excellent topic. I look forward to your essay!” I survived to live yet another day.
Hunting Have you ever been hunting in the woods? Have you ever shot something that has four legs, each one has a hoof on them. It can get gigantuan antlers and sheer size, but yet I don't harm hunters often even though people still want to eat me for dinner. If so, have you ever shot a deer while 20 feet up in the air?Have you ever had your legs shake so bad you think you might collapse? If you have gone hunting you know what I have felt.When we have time we go out to our farm in Fulton County (which is prime hunting land). We have been hunting there since I was seven years old . My dad has been hunting for over 20 years and yet he still has feelings for hunting. Although
Ravi delivers the news to major and Liv that the cure is temporary. My first thought was yay now they can be together while Ravi can pinpoint exactly when Major will revert back into a zombie he will eventually become one again. Blaine’s reaction to the news is priceless “Do I need to add brains to my Christmas list?” I couldn’t love Blaine anymore if I tried the sarcasm, the snarky and the general lack of empathy for those around him except on Christmas. When he becomes a kind and generous soul or maybe it’s just because he’ll be a zombie soon either way still love Blaine. Liv’s brain of the week is Santa himself, however, they skipped the recipe so we don’t know how he was prepared. I’m thinking with sugar cookies and brain. Liv still helps Clive as an attempt to get back in his good graces. While the trio Liv, Major and Ravi search the field for the dead bodies full of tainted utopium. Love scorned Rita tries to turn Vaughn (her father) against Major and get him cast out of the company. After Vaughn praises, his work and Major even gives him a fitness bracelet.

“Responsibility” would not quite meet the criteria for our persuasive essay assignment. The essay did not have a clear persuasive argument. I can deduct the possibility that the author’s intention was to get a reader to become more responsible, but the majority of the essay does not focus on any reasons for one to do so. As well, the essay took on a tone that removed all credibility from the author when, at the end of the third paragraph, they go on a tirade demeaning anybody who does stupid and irresponsible things. Passing judgement like that made me feel indifferent about the thoughts of the author throughout the rest of the essay. Perhaps if this portion were revised, and the introduction and conclusion were more developed, this essay would
In order to create a persuasive essay, the author must take into consideration the following points: the audience attitude, the organization of the speech and the appropriate use of the ethical guidelines.
I’ve chosen the form of a persuasive essay that would be published in a school library targeting early adulthood. The reason why I have chosen this form of writing is because I’m able to use a formal language. This is to include real life examples that allows me to express the topic even more so it makes it easier for the audience to understand. I’ve chosen early adulthood as the audience because I feel like they can relative this piece more than younger children because they are more exposed to changes in identity and may find it harder to belong to certain groups as they grow up.
Introduction It’s college graduation day and the graduates have just finished their walks across the stage. The future looks bright and the stress of classes has finally come to an end for most of the students. This day is a day full of joy for most, but for those who didn’t receive scholarships or grants; this day also marks the day that reality hits. For those who were lucky enough to get student loans now comes the time when those loans need to start being paid on. Through all of the excitement, the elephant in the room still remains; how will they possibly begin to pay the tens of thousands of dollars that they owe for the education they just finished?
With a hectic schedule already on my plate, the second week of class was packed with assignments. I found myself struggling to keep up with my high-demand business schedule in addition to writing a memo about change, creating 2 PowerPoint presentations with corresponding handouts, and participating in a discussion board. Sometimes, I wonder how I even find time to sleep.
While needing to be in survival mode this day in age people would ask for a smartphone with an internet card, or unlimited data. I’m not the one to ask for that. The three items that I would ask for would have to be heavy clothes, more snack foods and
Sulfide mining has been a highly debated topic in the norther part of our state. Companies such as PolyMet and Twin Metal have proposed sulfide mining in the area despite the publics’ opposition. Sulfide mining will permanently damage the environment around it. Although we are given the hopes of new employment opportunities the mining would be a burden to the tax payers as many companies fail to do well in the boom or bust economy associated with mining and the tax payers are left having to cover up the cleanup costs. Sulfide mining should not be allowed in the northern parts of our state as it will destroy our environment, communities and our economy.
