Please write the outline for the argument paper, the topic is ” how terrible the sexual assault Affecting the Quality of Education is” (from the both sides).
Introduction 1:
 
The number of sexual assault cases on college campuses is a real problem that not only affects the victims, but also the college administration, and the men who are accused of the assault. Colleges and universities are ill-equipped to handle the issue alone, victims are scared to report the assaults because of the judgment and criticisms of their peers, and the men who are accused face an upward battle to prove their innocence.
 
Introduction 2:
 
Sexual assualt crimes on college campuses are a problem that affects everyone involved. When reporting a sexual assault crime on campus, keep in mind that colleges and universities are often ill-equipped to handle the issue alone. Because of this, and the amount of criticism received from peers, reporting a sexual assault can be a scary and lonely process for victims and those who are accused of the sexual misconduct.

English homework help

Present two arguments in standard form (with each premise and conclusion on a separate line) on the same topic (selected from the PHI103 Final Paper Options list). The two arguments should represent different positions on the topic. For example, if your topic was Santa Claus (no, that’s not one of the topics on the list), then you might present one argument for the claim that Santa Claus does exist and another argument that Santa Claus does not exist. The premises of each argument will present reasons for thinking that the conclusion is true.
For each argument, provide a brief explanation of the strengths and weaknesses of the argument. You might consider whether the argument is inductive or deductive, or you might provide a diagram of the argument. Think about how the two arguments compare to each other. Is one better than the other? If so, what makes that one better? Is each a fair presentation of what someone taking that position would say? Are the premises reasonable? How might each argument be made better?

Respond: Erin
Topic: Should Marijuana be legalized for recreational use?
     Argument 1: (for)
Premise:
Creates local jobs.

Premise:
  Creates new both local and state taxes.
Conclusion: Legalizing Marijuana benefits both local and state revenue.

     Argument 2: (against)
Premise: 
Increases crime.

Premise:
Makes it easier for kids to obtain it.

Conclusion:
Legalizing Marijuana puts the public at risk.
The first argument is true. 
It has been shown to be a huge revenue machine in Colorado by adding both small businesses, for example-the shops who sell the products and large businesses who manufacture the product-all of which are taxed locally and through the state providing revenue, this makes it an inductive argument.
The second argument is invalid
due to the fluctuation of variable’s that will change from city to city and community to community. Thus it is a deductive argument.

Respond: joshua

What kinds of restrictions on gun ownership (if any) would be beneficial to society?
 
Argument #1:
 
1.       Shootings are often cause by legally sold weapons.
 
2.       Legal weapons are sold through personal background checks.
 
3.       Background checks are not thorough enough.
 
Conclusion- Shootings are caused by lack of thorough background checks
 
This is a deductive argument because it is strong but not valid, and is also based purely on theory.
 
Argument #2:
 
1.       The right to bare arms is a constitutional right.
 
2.       Crime rate has been lowered due to the legal carry of weapons.
 
Conclusion- Through the exercising of our right to bare arms, the crime rate is lowered.
 
This is an inductive argument since it is backed by evidence and is based on observational studies.
 
Both arguments relate to each other as they discuss the results of gun control over ownership.
 
Argument #1 represents a con, whereas argument #2 represents a pro.
 
The first argument is looked at as invalid as the statements are based on assumption or opinion, not facts. This would be agreed upon by someone against gun ownership, implementing more restrictions. The second argument is looked at as valid as it provides hard evidence or facts that makes it valid. The second argument would be agreed upon by someone for gun ownership and implementing less restrictions.
The first argument could be made more conclusive if it were said that harsher background checks could reduce shootings. The second argument could be made more conclusive by saying our right to bare arms reduces the crime rate.

Parental Education and Child’s Verbal IQ in Adoptive and Biological Families in the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health
Michelle Neiss1 and David C. Rowe1,2
Received 21 June 1999—Final 12 Oct. 2000
This study compared adoptive children and matched, biological children to estimate the genetic and environmental effect of years of mothers’ and fathers’ education on children’s verbal in- telligence (VIQ), as assessed by knowledge of vocabulary words. Adoptive and biological ado- lescent children in the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health (Add Health) were matched for sex, age, parental education, and ethnicity. The adolescents all resided with two parents. Structural equation modeling was employed using Mx to estimate the genetic and trans- missible environmental components of the correlation between parental education and children’s VIQ. The mother–child and father–child correlations in biological families were .41 and .36, re- spectively, vs .16 and .18 in adoptive families. As suggested by these correlations, both genetic and shared environmental influences were statistically significant in the Mx models. We con- clude that parental education exerts a modest shared environmental effect, explaining no more than 3 to 4% of the variation in verbal intelligence.
KEY WORDS: Adoption study; verbal IQ; heritability; shared environment.
INTRODUCTION
Behavioral geneticists have studied the influence of heredity on IQ for many decades, with most of the ev- idence pointing to a substantial genetic component to general cognitive abilities (Plomin and Petrill, 1997). Numerous studies with diverse samples and various methodologies have converged on this result. For ex- ample, Scarr and Weinberg (1983), in a U.S. sample, found that adopted children’s IQ scores were more closely correlated with the educational level of their biological parents than with the IQ scores of their adop- tive parents (IQs for biological parents of the adoptees were unavailable). Correcting for selective placement, Scarr and Weinberg estimated the heritability of IQ to range from 40 to 70% in this sample. Boomsma et al. (1998), looking at twins in Holland, estimated the her-

itability of IQ to be about 62%. Pal et al. (1997) found that genetic influences accounted for 81% of the vari- ance in intelligence in a sample of rural Indian ado- lescents. Looking at adult identical twins reared apart, Bouchard et al. (1990) estimated the broad heritabil- ity of IQ to be about 70%. In the Colorado Adoption Study (Plomin et al., 1997), genetic influences on ver- bal ability became stronger as children grew up from infancy to adolescence. In an analysis of kinship cor- relations on IQ from multiple studies, Chipuer et al. (1990) found that additive and nonadditive genetic variance together accounted for 51% of the variance in IQ scores.
Although these studies arrive at no single-point estimate of heritability, it is certain that IQ demon- strates a high degree of genetic variation. Genes, how- ever, do not necessarily account for all observed vari- ance in intelligence. Family environmental factors, such as parental socioeconomic class, may also play a role. Scarr and Weinberg (1983) found that genet- ically unrelated young siblings were as similar to each

other as biological siblings. Similarity between adopted children and their adoptive siblings suggests that shared environmental effects do contribute to individual differences in intelligence in childhood. Resemblance between adopted children and their sib- lings, however, generally decreases with age. For ex- ample, in the Scarr and Weinberg (1983) study, the IQ correlation between unrelated siblings among older adolescents was 0, whereas adolescent biological sib- lings were similar to one another (r

ENG 111 – REVERSE ENGINEERING

ENG 111HW ASSIGNMENT #8&9

 

REVERSE ENGINEERING

 

Objective:

 

The objective of this assignment is to develop an understanding and appreciation for the complexity of the engineering design process, and to experience the thinking processes required by the reverse engineering design process.  Reverse Engineering Design is the practice of analyzing a product to gain an understanding of how the product was originally produced with an eye to finding new and more efficient ways of production. The Engineering Design process entails “Synthesis” (combining various elements into an integrated whole), and “Analysis” (using mathematics, science, and engineering techniques to quantify the performance of various options). It also entails “Communication” (writing, drawing, and oral presentations), and “Implementation” (actually executing the design). The design process as it is applied to engineering then is the systematic, intelligent generation and evaluation of specifications for artifacts (products) whose form and function achieve stated objectives and satisfy specified constraints.

 

Procedure:

 

This assignment can be accomplished by a group (no more than 3) of students turning in a single set of documents (the content should reflect a group effort). Select a manufactured product that can easily be disassembled. The product will be carefully disassembled into sub-assemblies (unit systems) and finally into individual parts. By the end of the week of the reverse engineering exercise, the student/group will have developed:

 

1. An annotated/illustrated/numbered parts list.  The illustrations will be isometric sketches showing each part of a sub-assembly.

2. A written description of the function of the sub-assembly depicted above.

 

3. A complete parts list using format attached.

 

Reverse Engineering Design Stages:

 

Stage 1: Evaluation and Verification

 

1. For non-destructive dis-assembly, you will have to find a way to measure the parts inside the device to determine size, shape, and material.

 

2. To be able to remove the parts inside the device(destructive disassembly), screws, offsets, and switches will need to be removed. It is not necessary that the device function at the end of this exercise.

 

Stage 2: Technical Data Generation

 

3. Each part will be given a name related to its function, i.e. Integrated Circuit, switch, power supply, sensor, etc.  These names will be used on the parts list.

 

4. Divide the parts into three groups. Try to make these parts groups roughly equally complex, and closely related.

 

5. Each member of the group will select, either by choice or random drawing, a parts group to illustrate.

 

Stage 3: Design Verification

 

6. Each person will create an Isometric sketch of his or her parts with a ghost of the connecting parts – in exploded relation. The sketch will show the parts in proportion with dimensions. The sketched parts will be named and numbered to match the following parts list. Each drawing will also be numbered. There may be more than one part on each drawing.

 

7. Each group will create a parts list of the entire device. The list will include the part name, part number, drawing number, material, size, and cost.

 

8. Each group will write a one-paragraph description of the operation of the device using the part names and numbers listed in the parts list and on each drawing.

 

Stage 4 – Design Implementation

 

9. (No Prototype & Testing)

Helping Parents Promote Independence

Helping Parents Promote Independence

In this assignment you will demonstrate your understanding of the following learning objective:

Justify the collaborative role of transition team members who actively participate in transition meetings and examine the steps required in a transition-planning meeting.

The assignment represents your mastery of the Course Learning Outcome 5.

 

In this assignment you will consider a hypothetical transition meeting. To make this meeting more productive, you have decided to create an informational brochure or handout that you would want others in the meeting to understand. For example, as a special educator, what would you want the general educator to know about the transition process, or what would you want the parents to know?

 

To prepare for this assignment, view the video below titled Be a Superstar – Take the Survey – Student. This video interviews high school graduates one year post-graduation to ask “Where are You Now?” Next, reflect on how creating a realistic and attainable transition from high school to post-graduation independence takes time, planning, and a strong team of professionals and family who all have the student’s best interest at heart. The transition meeting can include the school principal (who may have links to community agencies), representatives from community agencies, a school counselor or psychologist (who was involved in assessments and interest inventories), the special educator, a general educator (who may have a role in the student’s education), the parents, and the student. In addition, parents can invite anyone else they believe will add value to their child’s independence (Levinson & Palmer, 2005).

The 4MAT Review system

The 4MAT Review system is a way of responding to readings that requires you to interact with new ideas on several levels. Your 4MAT Reviews must each be 5 pages.

 

Use the following format in preparing your 4MAT Reviews:

Summary

After listing the author and chapter, summarize what you have read as if you were the author condensing the book into 400 tight words. Prove that you comprehend the readings by writing a no-nonsense summary. This section is not a commentary or listing of topics, but rather an in depth, insightful “précis” of the content.

Concrete Responses

Get vulnerable! In 250 words, relate a personal life experience that this book connected with in your own life. Relate your story in first person, describing action and quoting sentences you remember hearing or saying. In the teaching style of Jesus, this is a do-it-yourself parable, case study, and/or confession. You will remember almost nothing you have read unless you make this critical, personal connection. What video memory began to roll? This is your chance to tell your story and make new ideas found in the book your own.

Reflection

What new questions arise for you in response to what you have read? Keep a rough note sheet at hand as you read. Begin with questions like, “What would I like further information on?” Where do I not agree/strongly agree with the author?” or “What bothers me/excites me about this content?” This section must be about 250 words.

Application

How does the information in the book influence how you are going to continue your own personal growth process? What actions or changes are you going to make in your life as a result of your learning?

Suppose you are the Information Security Director at a small software company. The organization currently utilizes a Microsoft Server 2012 Active Directory domain administered by your information security team. Mostly software developers and a relatively small number of administrative personnel comprise the remainder of the organization. You have convinced business unit leaders that it would be in the best interest of the company to use a public key infrastructure (PKI) in order to provide a framework that fosters confidentiality, integrity, authentication, and nonrepudiation. Email clients, virtual private network (VPN) products, Web server components, and domain controllers would utilize digital certificates issued by the certificate authority (CA).

Analyze the fundamentals of PKI, and determine the primary ways in which its features and functions could benefit your organization and its information security department.

Propose one (1) way in which the PKI could assist in the process of signing the company’s software, and explain the main reason why a customer could then believe that software to be authentic.

Compare and contrast public and in-house CAs. Include the positive and negative characteristics of each type of certificate authority, and provide a sound recommendation of and a justification for which you would consider implementing within your organization. Explain your rationale.

Use at least three (3) quality resources in this assignment (no more than 2-3 years old) from material outside the textbook. Note: Wikipedia and similar Websites do not qualify as quality resources.

Mythological and Modern-Day Heroes

ENG 155 Week 4 Assignment ( Mythological and Modern-Day Heroes Paper ) – A Graded – Best Tutorial – Quality Work – Latest Syllabus

Mythological and Modern-Day Heroes Paper

Identify a hero from literature or popular culture who embarks on a mythical quest.

Write a 1000 – 1450 word paper that includes the following:

  • A list of the mythological hero’s characteristics
  • A description of how that character exemplifies a mythological hero
  • The purpose of the mythical quest in general

You may not write on any heroes from the course reading or from Biblical or classical mythology that we have not covered. The purpose of this assignment is to examine how modern-day heroes are cast in molds that are similar to the archetypes that we have been studying.

You should also avoid writing on real people for this paper. What tends to happen when students write on actual real life heroes for this paper, is that they forget to do the assignment and just produce a 1000 word biography. It is best to stick to fictional characters for the purposes of this paper.  

 

Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines.

Application: Special Needs From a Variety of Perspectives

Throughout this course, you will be studying many topics related to children with special needs. The readings, content reviews, and Discussions will help you gain a valuable base of information. To expand your knowledge, the course Applications will offer ways to explore areas of special needs in more depth and increase your awareness of what it is like to teach and to parent a child with special needs, or to be someone who has been identified with a special need.
Before you begin the Week 1 Application, review the outline below in order to plan effectively.

  • Week 1: Write a Brochure on Early Intervention Services. You will imagine yourself in the role of a Child Development Community Liaison for a nonprofit organization that provides programs related to infant/toddler healthy development. Your job is to create a brochure for infant/toddler program directors and caregivers informing them about your services.
  • Week 2: Interview with a Teacher or Caregiver. You will have a choice of interviewing a teacher whose expertise is special education and who works with children ages 3–8, or a teacher or caregiver who has a child or children in his/her setting who have been identified with special needs.
  • Week 3: Research and Information Exchange, Part 1. You will research a category of special needs that is of interest to you in order to gain a greater depth of knowledge.
  • Week 4: Research and Information Exchange, Part 2. You will share, review, and reflect on fellow students’ research on different categories of special needs.

You will have a choice of interviewing a parent or other close adult family member of a child with special needs, or a person with special needs who would like to share his or her experiences and perspectives.

Week 1: Write a Brochure on Early Intervention Services
As you have learned this week, early intervention services can include programs for infants and toddlers who may be at risk from biological or environmental issues that could lead to developmental delays or other special needs. One challenge to early intervention service providers is to ensure that they reach out and connect with families. All of the various types of infant and toddler programs in a community, including family day care homes, Early Start, faith-based programs, community organizations, can play an important role in connecting families to available early intervention services.
For your Application Assignment this week, imagine that you have been hired as a Child Development Community Liaison for a community organization called The Guidance Center Inc. In reality, this respected, not-for-profit organization serves the communities of Cambridge and Somerville in Massachusetts. As part of The Guidance Center’s Early Childhood Services for ages 0–6 , their Infant-Toddler Services include four programs that provide services to pregnant women, infants, toddlers, and their families.
As the Child Development Community Liaison, your job is to connect with infant and toddler program directors and caregivers and communicate both a strong message about the importance of early intervention and the services The Guidance Center provides. Your supervisor has asked you to:

  1. Draft a two-page brochure that emphasizes why early intervention is important and the ways it is addressed through The Guidance Center.*
  1. Include in the brochure, an idea for an additional program or a way to improve a current program in order to better meet the goal of providing quality early interventions services for pregnant women, infants, toddlers, and/or their families.

* Though The Guidance Center is a real organization, this scenario has been created only for this course. The brochure you create is intended only to further your own knowledge of early intervention services and not to be used for distribution.

From the “Early Childhood Services” menu on the left of the page, click on and read about the Infant-Toddler Services programs. You may also choose to visit the Elizabeth Peabody House web site for further information. Be sure to refer to the Home Visiting section located under the Resources tab.
Step 2: Create The Guidance Center Infant-Toddler Services Brochure
Use the information you have learned about the Infant-Toddler Services to create a draft of a two-page brochure. Make sure your brochure includes:

  • A strong rationale and foundational understanding of why early intervention is important.
  • An overview of the ways The Guidance Center programs support early intervention.
  • Based on what you learned while getting your degree in child development, a description of a new program The Guidance Center will be offering or a way that one of the current programs has been approved to offer even more effective services.

As you write, keep these tips in mind:

  • Think about how to present the information in ways that are professional and, at the same time, capture attention.
  • Think about how the brochure can help assure infant-toddler program directors and caregivers that families they refer will feel comfortable and respected, i.e., consider ways that The Guidance Center is sensitive to different cultures within the community.

Poetry assignment

Poetry is a literary form that can offer readers a different experience based on whether the poem is read silently, read aloud, or simply listened to when read by someone else. For example, you might hear a certain rhythm or change of pace that you might not catch when simply reading the poem silently to yourself. For this week’s discussion, you will read and listen to poetry. Read and listen with careful eyes and ears so you can respond thoughtfully to the two parts of the discussion this week.
Part One: Read “We Real Cool” and “My Papa’s Waltz” in your textbook. Then, answer the following questions about one of the poems:

  • What is the theme of the poem? How do you know this is the theme?
  • What poetic devices (rhythm, figurative language, etc.) are used in the poem? Offer at least two examples.
  • How do these poetic devices contribute to the development of the poem’s message?

Support your ideas with textual details and analyses. When you have answered the questions above, then move on to the next set of instructions in Part Two.

Part Two: Listen to “We Real Cool” and “My Papa’s Waltz.” These clips demonstrate the importance of performance, rhythm, and musicality in the poetic form. Describe your listening experience of the same poem you wrote about above. If you are unable to listen to these poems due to an auditory impairment, please reach out to your Instructor for an alternative prompt for this discussion. Respond to at least two of the following questions:

  • How did hearing the poem recited aloud compare to a silent reading of it?
  • Did the performance highlight certain words or phrases that were not as apparent in a silent reading?
  • Did the pace change and, if so, how did it change your understanding of the poem?
  • Did words have different connotations and, if so, what kind(s) of connotation did you associate with the poem?
  • Do you think reading poetry aloud is a worthwhile endeavor when analyzing it? Why, or why not?

Support your ideas with textual details and analyses. Address how specific literary elements and techniques contributed to your experience and the conflict. Your initial post should be at least 200 words in length. The minimum word count does not include references.

Homework 3.2
As part of the writing process, you are expected to reflect on your work and revise and edit accordingly. It is also useful to establish a community of learners in which you help edit and proofread each other’s papers. This reciprocal process will help you identify areas of strength and weakness in others’ writing as well as reflect on your own work and perhaps discover similar strengths and weaknesses. For this week, you will be performing a peer review on a classmate’s Week Three Draft. For your initial post

  • Read the instructions for completing the Week Three Draft assignment.
  • Then, do one of the following:
    • Upload an early version of your Week Three Draft (at least 300 words) (.doc format) as a new thread with your name and title of paper.
    • Create a new thread in which you copy and paste your draft into the body of your post.
    • Post a detailed outline (at least 200 words) that clearly illustrates how you plan to organize your essay. The outline should contain a working thesis, topic sentences, and details/textual references to support the topic sentences. See the Sample Outline in the Ashford Writing Center for guidance.

The draft or outline you share in the discussion needs to meet the specified word requirements (above) and must be double-spaced. You will build on the draft or outline and submit it as your Week Three Draft assignment this week.

Week Three Draft

Why Write a Draft?

All writers begin a project by brainstorming their ideas and constructing a rough draft. The draft is not a completed paper; rather, it allows writers to explore and develop their ideas. As part of the writing process, it is important for writers to rehearse their materials before those materials “go live.”
You will complete a draft this week that will allow you to explore and develop your ideas in preparation for your Literary Analysis, which is due in Week Five. Writing a literary analysis helps us to more readily connect conflicts in literature to our everyday experiences and analyze our own lives as well as human motivations and behavior in general. Finally, it improves our writing and reading skills overall.
How to Write the Draft
Closely read and take notes on the Literary Analysis assignment found under the Week Five tab. There, you will find complete directions. By this point in the course, you will have discussed two texts from the List of Literary Works, defined at least one conflict, and identified and described at least three literary techniques as specified in the Week Five Literary Analysis prompt.
For this assignment, you will construct a working thesis statement that defines in detail the conflict you will analyze, the two texts you will address, and the literary devices you will apply to your final analysis. Review the Writing a Clear and Sound Thesis for a Literary Analysis for support.
The body of your paper, which will consist of 800 to 1000 words, is to be presented in four sections as detailed below.

  • Conflict
    • Identify the conflict in the two texts you have chosen.
    • Identify the similarities and differences in the representation of the conflict in the texts.
    • Identify three literary techniques and elements that help represent this conflict.
  • Literary Techniques in [Title of First Chosen Text]
    • Explain where and how you see the three literary techniques at work in your chosen first text.
    • Provide specific examples by quoting, paraphrasing, and/or summarizing.
    • Explain how the literary techniques/examples define and draw out this conflict.
  • Literary Techniques in [Title of Second Chosen Text]
    • Explain where and how you see the three literary techniques at work in your second chosen text.
    • Provide specific examples by quoting, paraphrasing, and/or summarizing.
    • Explain how the literary techniques define and draw out this conflict.
  • Similarities and Differences
    • Compare and contrast the manner in which the texts address the conflict.
    • Explain if they use different and/or similar literary techniques to articulate that conflict.
    • Explain the different and/or similar resolutions of each conflict and how those resolutions were reached.

Compile a working references list on a separate page that is formatted according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center. Watch the ENG125 Literature Research video (Transcript) for help with finding sources from the library for your paper.
Keep in mind you are writing a literary analysis so please avoid supplying extensive summaries of the texts. Write a summary only when it aids you in describing a specific conflict and/or application of a literary device.
Assignment Requirements

  • Topic: Your draft must contain a working thesis that helps you to explore the topic. Your paper must address at least two of the texts (one of which must be a short story), a specific conflict, and at least three of the literary techniques as listed in the Week Five Literary Analysis guidelines.
  • Length: Your draft must be 800 to 1000 words in length, excluding the title and references pages.
  • Sources: Your draft must contain a working references page with two to four sources used to support your examples and findings.
  • Elements of Academic Writing: Your draft must contain clear transitions between sections.
  • APA: Your assignment must be formatted according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
    • Separate Title Page: Must include a separate title page that lists the following: an original title, your name, date of submission, and your instructor’s name.
    • Separate References Page: At the end of your paper, include a separate references page that lists all sources utilized for and cited within your analysis.
    • Proper Citations: All sources must be properly cited according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center, both within the text of your paper and on the references page.

Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister

I am required to choose a theme or symbol from the reading. Some suggestions are “beauty as a prison,” “appearance vs reality,” “birds,” “art and artwork,” “the real and the unreal,” “seeing and not seeing” etc. The book is called Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister by Gregory Maguire.

"The Little Mermaid"

This assignment is designed to give you a little more practice on doing library research and, more specifically, research for your literary analysis. By now you should have read over the assignment for the Literary Analysis essay and you have hopefully started thinking about what you’d like to write your analysis on. Remember that for the final Literary Analysis, you will pick one or more of the stories you have read or will read in the final modules of this course to explore in depth and breadth one of the themes you find in the literature. For this assignment, I want you to go out and try to find one essay/article written about the story (or stories) and/or the theme you have chosen for your final Literary Analysis. If you haven’t chosen a story/theme for your final Literary Analysis yet, then just search for an essay/article written about “The Little Mermaid”. Find an essay/article in the library or by using the library databases. DO NOT find an article using Google or any other web source outside of the library databases! This includes Wikipedia. If you select a website or other document that you found from simply doing a Google search, you will receive a zero for this assignment. Submit a copy of your essay/article here and, in a separate .rtf file, write a brief, 1-2 page summary of the essay/article. Include in this summary a description of the main thesis of this essay/article (what is the author/s trying to argue?) and some explanation of how you could use this essay/article to help bolster your own Literary Analysis essay. To reiterate, you will be submitting TWO files here: 1) a copy of the essay/article you have found; 2) an .rtf file containing your summary of the essay/article. I’ve also made a video to help explain this assignment. You can view it below

Letter to a Citizen of Kentucky, an excerpt

Letter to a Citizen of Kentucky, an excerpt
Executive Mansion, Washington,
April 4, 1864.
A. G. Hodges, Esq., Frankfort, Ky.
My Dear Sir:
You ask me to put in writing the substance of what I verbally stated the other day, in your presence, to Governor Bramlette and Senator Dixon. It was about as follows:
I am naturally anti-slavery. If slavery is not wrong nothing is wrong. I cannot remember when I did not so think and feel; and yet I have never understood that the Presidency conferred upon me an unrestricted right to act officially in this judgment and feeling. It was in the oath I took that I would to the best of my ability preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. I could not take the office without taking the oath. Nor was it in my view that I might take the oath to get power, and break the oath in using the power.
I understood, too, that in ordinary civil administration this oath even forbade me to practically indulge my primary abstract judgment on the moral question of slavery. I had publicly declared this many times and in many ways; and I aver that, to this day I have done no official act in mere deference to my abstract judgment and feeling on slavery. I did understand, however, that my oath to preserve the Constitution to the best of my ability imposed upon me the duty of preserving, by every indispensable means, that government, that nation, of which that Constitution was the organic law. Was it possible to lose the nation, and yet preserve the Constitution?
By general law, life and limb must be protected; yet often a limb must be amputated to save a life, but a life is never wisely given to save a limb. I felt that measures, otherwise unconstitutional, might become lawful by becoming indispensable to the preservation of the Constitution through the preservation of the nation. Right or wrong, I assumed this ground, and now avow it. I could not feel that to the best of my ability I had even tried to preserve the Constitution, if, to save slavery, or any minor matter, I should permit the wreck of government, country, and Constitution altogether.
When, early in the war, General Fremont attempted military emancipation, I forbade it, because I did not then think it an indispensable necessity. When, a little later, General Cameron, then Secretary of War, suggested the arming of the blacks, I objected, because I did not yet think it an indispensable necessity. When, still later, General Hunter attempted military emancipation, I forbade it, because I did not yet think the indispensable necessity had come. When, in March and May and July, 1862, I made earnest and successive appeals to the Border States to favor compensated emancipation, I believed the indispensable necessity for military emancipation and arming the blacks would come, unless averted by that measure. They declined the proposition; and I was, in my best judgment, driven to the alternative of either surrendering the Union, and with it the Constitution, or of laying strong hand upon the colored element. I chose the latter. In choosing it, I hoped for greater gain than loss; but of this I was not entirely confident…
Yours truly,
A. Lincoln
In the sentence in bold, President Lincoln states that saving slavery would likely lead to something else. What would it lead to? (4 points)
Increased government control
Upholding essential Constitutional elements
The destruction of the government
A new form of capitalism

Journal Two: Identifying Conflict in Two Texts

Read About Journals in ENG125: Introduction to Literature for more information about the purpose and expectations for journals.
This week, you continue writing your journal entries. This journal entry is designed to help you document ideas about conflicts in literature, which will contribute to the information required for the Week Three Draft and the Week Five Literary Analysis. Recognizing conflict is essential to understanding the various commentaries literature can provide.
In Journal One, you identified conflict as it might appear in our everyday world and from other sources. Now, consider the following definition of conflict and how it relates to literature from the textbook or the story/poetry links provided under the requirements for the Literary Analysis:
Conflict is opposing actions, ideas, and decisions that hold a plot together…the struggle that shapes the plot in a story.
Chapters 1-7 of our text contain a number of stories and poems, each of which rely on at least one conflict. Choose two of this week’s assigned literary works and write about the conflicts presented in each of them. In 250 to 500 words

    State the specific conflicts you see in each work.

    Describe the characters, forces, and/or entities that are at odds.
Explain why you think the conflicts are significant and what meanings/understandings they provide to the texts.
Paraphrase, quote, and/or summarize content from the works to support your observations. Don’t forget to add in-text citations for the works you draw from.
Explain how each conflict has meaning beyond the work in which it appears. Why is it important to be able to recognize conflict in a literary text and extend that understanding of conflict to the world at large?
From the stories you are reading, how much do similar elements of symbolism, metaphor, allusion, and/or allegory apply and add depth to an idea raised in the literature?
For instance, in George Orwell’s novel Animal Farm, the pigs and farmers can be seen as symbolic of workers versus managers to make points about class struggles, calling into question the idea of equality in society.
In another example, in the “Story of an Hour,” the main character expresses personal conflict in her process of coming to terms with her husband’s supposed death. But this moment symbolizes more than just her personal grief. What does it suggest about societal expectations regarding women and how they should respond to grief? How might those expectations of grief still apply to women’s roles? How does the symbolism show a conflict between Mrs. Mallard and her own desires? Are these “women’s desires” in conflict with current social norms?
As you are writing this journal entry, please review the expectations for the Week Five Literary Analysis, which you are working toward throughout the course.

Emergency by Denis Johnson

First, Identify an interesting, “concrete” repetition, strand or binary that occurs in the short stories “Emergency by Denis”. Then, write an essay in which you explore the meaning/significance of this repetition, or strand, or binary (Pick one to work with) by analyzing textual evidence (quotations) in which important references to repetition, strand, or binary appears. Consider how each new piece of evidence deepens your understanding of the possible meaning or importance of the repetition, strand, or binary , how each occurrence is placed in a new context, In your conclusion, you will state your evolved “thesis statement,” detailing the most plausible and/or interesting answer to the following question… Why/how is this repetition, strand, or binary important to the story as a whole? How does it enhance your understanding of the story’s overall meaning? In addition, you must QUOTE and ANALYZE textual evidence (passages) in order to analyze the meaning of your repetition, strand, or binary. And, remember I want you to dig deep beneath the surface of your passages, analyzing/explaining the meaning/significance of individual words and phrases. and I’d like you to broaden your scope, focusing on one significant recurring word, idea, image, or contrast in the story — a specific repetition, strand, or binary — preferably one that is also (at first, at least) a bit of anomaly — that is puzzling, that you don’t completely understand but that you want to figure out.

Communication

Over the past several decades, communication media have evolved significantly. In addition to communicating messages through books, newspapers, and magazines, we now have the ability to communicate through blogs, websites, and social media like Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. Now, more than ever, the average person is capable of creating and distributing professional-looking visual communication. This supports what your textbook identifies as perhaps the most significant change; these “new technologies are forcing journalists, advertisers, PR professionals, and entertainment executives to relinquish their role as ‘gatekeepers’ of information.”

Taking a look at one of the professions listed in this quote, or even your own profession, reflect on how the role of “gatekeeper” is being redefined, given these new technologies. What are the benefits and challenges associated with this change, both from a business perspective and a social perspective? Are there any ethical concerns associated with this shift?

This journal entry should allow you to thoroughly reflect upon what you have learned thus far in class, and provides you an opportunity to relate this learning to your professional and/or personal experiences. Your journal entry may be written in a more informal style, with a focus on clearly conveying your ideas. APA formatting elements are not required for your journal entry, but you are expected to adhere to conventional rules of grammar, sentence structure, spelling, and punctuation.

Speech Discussion

Speech Discussion

Recall the two presidential speeches that were given by both President Obama and President Reagan, respectively.  Note that these two presidents used the Rogerian method of argumentation to not only win over those who agreed with their viewpoints, but also to win over those who held different views.
Think about a national or international issue that matters to you and write your own speech for that issue, using the Rogerian style of argumentation.  How would you win over the other side?  You don’t need to use citations, but please do not create statistics or ‘facts.’
Next, consider the following. During week seven, you created an argument using the Rogerian method. Have you used this style of argumentation before in your studies or career (either verbally or in past writing assignments/projects)? Will you use it in the future? Why or why not?
In your response to your classmates, comment on the persuasiveness of your classmate’s speech – do not comment on whether or not you agree with the issue.   Did this student follow the Rogerian format?  Why or why not?

Instructions: Your initial discussion should be at least 200 words. It must include MLA citations – both in-text and an end citation. Please also respond to two of your classmates’ initial posts (students who have discussed different essays) and bring together pieces of the discussion and take those ideas further.  These responses should be at least 150 words.

English Essay

English Essay 01

The Assignment:

  1. Pleasant/Unpleasant Description of the Place:Choose a place you can observe for an extended period of time (at least 20-30 minutes). Use all of your senses (sight, hearing, touch, smell, even taste if possible) to experience the place, and record all of the sensations that you experience. As you record your data, you may wish to note which details naturally seem more positive, negative, or neutral, in terms of tone. (For instance, a stinky and overflowing trash barrel swarming with flies in a nearby alley might seem more inherently negative than a little white bunny rabbit hopping playfully across the lawn.)  Then, you will use this information to help your write two descriptions of the place: one positive, one negative (at least 1-2 well-developed paragraphs or a minimum of 125-150 words each).  Both descriptions should be factually true (same real time and real place), but you will want one description to be clearly positive in terms of tone and the other to be clearly negative.  In addition to including the information and sensory details you’ve collected as the basis for these descriptions, you will also use the Writer’s Toolbox to create your two contrasting impressions for this assignment.  (The Writer’s Toolbox is explained in the Lecture Notes section of this unit.)  As you revise and refine your descriptions, please be sure you are “showing” your readers your place (really putting the readers “there” in the moment and in this scene), rather than simply “telling” them about it.  You will also want to try to eliminate unnecessary linking verbs as much as you can, incorporating verbs that show “action” whenever possible.
  2. Rhetorical Analysis:  Looking back at your descriptions, analyze how you created these two very different impressions of the place (one positive, one negative) without changing any of the facts.  How did you make your place seem so positive in one paragraph and yet so negative in the other paragraph, without changing the facts?  Discuss how you incorporated each of the tools from the Writer’s Toolbox, and cite examples of this from each of your descriptions.  (This analysis should be at least 400-500 words in length.)
  3. Reflection:  In one to two paragraphs, consider at least one of the following questions:  What have you learned about writing through this assignment?  How might you apply this knowledge?  Has this process of using the Writer’s Toolbox affected your vision of various information media–for instance, television and print news sources, magazines, etc.?  If so, how so?

Case Study

Read the following case studies to help inform the assignment.

Case Study: Doug

Age: 7.9

Grade: Second Grade, 2nd Semester

Doug loves science and hands-on activities. He is interested in dinosaurs and robots, and enjoys using the computer to play games. Doug has shared that he likes putting together Lego sets and has brought several in to the classroom to share. Doug, however, is not performing well at school. His teacher and parents are concerned. He is failing grade-level requirements in reading and math, even though he has tested at grade level in these areas. Doug does have an identified learning disability and receives resource room assistance in written expression.

Doug gets easily frustrated when he has to copy and write assignments in any subject. He does have a computer available to use in the classroom as needed. His second grade teacher, Mr. McGrady, believes Doug is capable of doing the work required in class. Mr. McGrady has noted that Doug participates in class discussions and hands-on activities; however, he avoids and rarely starts assignments by himself. Mr. McGrady reports that while other students begin assignments, Doug can be found fiddling with “Lego gadgets” and drawing robots. Getting Doug started on most independent activities is like pulling teeth. Based on this information, Mr. McGrady has selected these goals for Doug to achieve within the next three months:

• Begin independent work assignments promptly.

• Increase the number of completed assignments.

Case Study: Ellie

Age: 14

Grade: Ninth grade, 1st semester

Ellie is a ninth grader who has just moved to the community from another city. She is quiet and withdrawn and does not appear to have made many new friends. She often sits alone in the back of the classroom and does not volunteer responses, offer ideas, or engage in class discussions. While she does most, if not all, of the independent work required of her, she does not actively participate in any partner or cooperative activities. She avoids group contact by reading or drawing quietly or asking to be excused to go to the restroom, locker, or office. From all the information the teachers have gathered and their observations, Ellie appears to be able to read and write at grade level.

Mr. Salinas, Ellie’s English teacher, becomes concerned when Ellie’s failure to participate in group activities begins to cause some resentment among her peers. Some students say they do not want to be placed in a group with Ellie because “She won’t help out and it just drags us down. It’s like she doesn’t even know we’re there.” This problem is also beginning to affect Ellie’s grade in English class because several of the semester competencies and assignments require peer and group interaction. There are upcoming small group literature discussion activities and peer editing and writing support groups. Mr. Salinas believes Ellie is capable of the work and sets the following goals for her to achieve by the end of the semester:

• Increase her participation in class discussions and conversations.

• Interact effectively within literature discussion activities and peer editing or writing    groups.

We wear the mask that grins and lies,

It hides our cheeks and shadoes our eyes-

This debt we pay to human guile;

With torn and leeding hearts we smile

And mouth with myriad subtleties.

Why should the world bo over-side,

In counting all our tears and sight?

Nay, let them only see us, while

We wear the mask.

We smile, but oh great Christ, our cries

To Thee from tortured souls arise.

We sing, but oh the clay is vile

Beneath our feet, and long the mile;

But let the world dream otherwise,

We wear the mask!

critical evaluation essay

Choose one argument from the historic American or global works listed in the “Supplemental Readings” section of the course lessons. Decide whether this argument is successful or not. If you decide this essay is successful, discuss why. You may use the structure of the argument, the tone, and the various types of support (ethos, pathos, and logos) as proof of the argument’s success. Make sure that your thesis has an introduction that contains a hook and a thesis, body paragraphs that discuss one proof at a time (one paragraph per example), and a conclusion. If you decide that the essay is not successful, then discuss the fallacies that the argument makes. You are still required to have a strong introduction (hook and thesis), body paragraphs that discuss one fallacy at a time, and a conclusion. You may also discuss how the essay is successful with reservations. In this case, point to both the support and the fallacies you have found in the work.
This paper should be at least 700 words, but no more than 850. The paper should be formatted correctly MLA style and written in third person (do not use the words I, me, us, we, or you).  The essay should also contain citations and a works cited list.
