Analyzing Written Essays The four types of essay organizations discussed in this week readings are topic, time order, space order, and informative process. One of the essays I read was “A Soul as Free as the Air: About Lucy Stone”. The characteristics that make this an expository essay are it states fact about the work and efforts of Lucy Stone. Examples of these facts are. She was the first woman in Massachusetts to earn a college degree. She was also the first person in New England to be cremated. Also this essay uses the time order organization. The second essay I read was “How to Succeed as an Online Student”. This essay uses the informative process. It gives you step by step directions on how to become a successful online student. How to distinguish between the three types of organizations are: Space organization deals with location of people, places, or thing. Time organization is developed by time order it involves chronological organization of information from one time period to another. And informative process essay is a how to essay which gives you step by step instructions on how to do something. The organization can help the reader understand the subject matter of that essay by informative process of the “How to Succeed as an Online Student” explains in order to succeed you must follow these steps. And the time order of “A Soul as Free as the Air: About Lucy Stone” organize the events of her life in chronological order. Of the essays I read the one with the most effective organization is “A Soul as Free as the Air: About Lucy Stone. The reason I think this is because the essay organizes the information from the beginning to the end of Lucy Stone’s life. She was born 08/13/1818. By age 25 (1843) Lucy had saved enough money to fund her year at Oberlin College in Ohio.

Analyzing the Author's Purpose

...7 ANALYZING THE AUTHOR’S PURPOSE AND TECHNIQUE he writer’s overall purpose determines the techniques he or she uses. The writer’s reason for writing a particular article or book may be manipulative, as in propaganda or advertising, or may be more straightforward, as in informative writing. In either case, understanding the writer’s underlying purpose will help you interpret the context of the writing. It will also help you see why writers make the decisions they do—from the largest decisions about what information to present to the smallest details of what words to use. The chapter concludes with instructions on how to write an analysis of purpose and technique. This kind of rhetorical analysis will provide the perspective required to keep you from being pushed by words in directions you don’t want to go. T 103 104 Part 1 Writing About Reading The Writer's Purpose Insofar as people know what they are doing, they plan their actions to achieve their purposes. Someone who selects the purpose of being rich will design and carry out a set of actions, legal or illegal, to gain the desired wealth. A person who wants to gain great wisdom will design an entirely different life course. Writers, whether they want most to be wealthy or wise, have specific purposes they hope to achieve by any piece of work. If they are skilled writers—that is, in control of what they write—they design each aspect of what they are writing to achieve their purpose. Being aware of the......

Written Task

...unusual for Blake’s poems. Playing with punctuation and spelling identify him. In this essay I’ll discuss the following question: is The Tyger by William Blake a religious poem? In my opinion, it isn’t at all. In the poem there are used a lot of metaphores and paradoxes. Sentences like ‘burning bright’ and ‘burning fire in thine eyes’ do not refer to burning or fire itself at all, they are just describing the beauty and bright colors of the tiger’s fur and eyes. Such metaphors are not hard to understand and will be recognized immediately, which makes it fun to read. Another example is the title itself. Tyger should be written as tiger of course, but in this poem, he doesn’t mean to discuss the tiger on its own. In this poem William asks himself questions about the Creation. The Tyger is a poem reflected to another poem of his, The Lamb. In The lamb he discussed and focussed on the goodness created by God. In the poem The Tyger, he focusses on evil and the darker side of life. He finds this darker side in the tiger, which is a very misterious animal. He asks himself the question who created the tiger and in his way of writing, it comes forward that he has a sort of admiration for the animal. Who created him? Why did He? By these questions he reffers to God. As I’ve said before, I don’t agree that this poem is a relgious poem, I actually think it is far from religious. This poem was written in the early beginning of Romanticism. It was the period of time that continued......

Whether they are situations at home work or in class. I try and please everyone knowing that it may or may not happen. But I feel that I have to at least attempt it. Which ties into my core value result that is balancing between others and myself. Most of time I am the one that people will vent to whether it’s family, friends or co-workers, because I will listen and not judge them on what they have to say. Which is also listed in my core value result, that I am ‘’tempered by rationality, using reason to find the rules of life.’’ The Blind Spot was one the results that I have mixed emotions about; there are parts I agree and parts I disagree. My expectations of people are pretty clear and cut, I expect that you do your job to the best of your ability. I am someone who will not ask you to do something that I myself would not do. The blind Spot stated that I ‘’forget that individuals are fallible regardless of their role.’’ I know individuals are fallible just not on a constant basis. After this exercise it has brought forth some things for me to think about, especially a statement that was listed in My Risks, ‘’This can make you susceptible to insincere flattery and immune to constructive critiques preventing you from doing your job effectively.’’ Maybe I need to sit back and evaluate the things that people are coming to me to...

...On June 28, 2012 “The affordable care act”, also known as “Obama care” which has been nothing less than controversial and a very well spoken about topic in national media since 2008 was passed and up held by the Supreme Court. The bill has passed and now we can move forward with a public option system that will help millions. The political bickering will most likely never stop even though the bill has passed. In the United States it is well-known fact that we as working American’s pay for our own healthcare. And it is typically never cheap, and the coverage is less than satisfying especially to the parents with children or those with special factors involved in their lives. Globally it is also very well-known, that Americans pay more than anyone else in the world for our healthcare. A large part of this is the system we use now which some call the insurance company system. In time of recession health insurance companies are currently making record profits while they continue to raise their premiums. When there are more unemployed in this country which clearly means less people covered medically how it is possible that health insurance companies could still be making record profits? Rather than doctors and health care providers making decisions as they should. Doctors are forced to make decisions financially to their patients because of the “fee payment” schedule put out by the insurance companies. There seems to be some confusion about “Obamacare” and how it is...

...Analyzing Cynthia Fisher Grantham University In the article “Give Congress Some Credit for Tough Workdays” Congress is uplifted and spoke of as hard working Americans. Rose, the author, wants his audience believe in the good things that Congress does for their country. He explains that according to Public Policy Polling, “Congress is literally less popular than cockroaches and traffic jams” (Rose, 2014). “This is a bum rap” (Rose, 2014), he proclaims, denying that the reputation given has been misconstrued. Throughout the article Rose gives examples of the truth that Congressmen must deal with many issues in their field. “They take heat for nearly every vote, they find themselves on the wrong side of disagreeable and quite vocal dissidents” (Rose, 2014). While issues the author provide are true in facts, important information to why Public Policy Polling discovered the dishearten conclusions are not mentioned. Rose gives a classical argument filled with filled with substantial relevance to his claims. He also recognizes the weakness that “There are cockroaches in the Congress” (Rose, 2014), however, he feels the pros outweigh the cons in the debate. It is certain that the author is strongly sympathetic to the accusations portrayed over the Congress. He is clear and concise with giving reasonable points to the sacrifices that is made by these politics.

English for Written Communication

...Message (k) Lack of Feedback 1.2 DEFINING WRITTEN COMMUNICATION - Oral communication involves conveying ideas, thoughts or information via a spoken language. - Written communication, however, information is exchanged using written symbols, that is, via words and sentences. Written communication is the sharing and exchanging of written symbols between individuals or groups. It is also the presentation of ideas in a coherent manner in written form. - Written communication can take place via letter, faxes, email, reports, memos and advertisements. 1.3 WHY WRITTEN COMMUNICATION? - Once we put something into writing, the message is there for posterity, so that others can read it again and again, whenever they like. This is especially useful for research purposes where you need to build up on existing pools of knowledge. - Records can exist independently of the writer because information can be stored and transferred from individual to individual and group to group without relying on memory. - Helps us to keep abreast of development in whatever project we are involved in as it provides an avenue not only for the sharing of ideas or opinions but also for the presenting and defending of viewpoints. - A form of acknowledgement - proof that something has been done in case verification is needed later. - Helps to clarify thoughts and thinking processes as it allows us to mull over things slowly, at our own pace. 1.4 TIPS ON WRITTEN COMMUNICATION ❖ THE WRITING......

Metro[Goldwyn[Mayer, Inc., No. 12[1315 (October 2013 Term). 2. 1 2 VANDERBILT LAW REVIEW EN BANC [Vol. 67:1 The parties in Petrella offer diametrically opposite answers to these questions. The petitioner, who lost below because the lower courts invoked laches, argues that laches is entirely precluded because Congress enacted a statute of limitations.3 On the other hand, the respondents are defending the Ninth Circuit s position that in copyright cases the defense of laches applies no matter whether the remedy sought is legal or equitable.4 Between these extremes of laches for no remedies and laches for all remedies lies a better course.5 This essay examines the doctrine, history, and theory of laches. It reaches two conclusions. First, laches is and should remain an equitable defense. Second, laches is available unless Congress makes a clear statement abrogating it, and the mere enactment of a statute of limitations is not a clear statement of abrogation. Given these conclusions, the Court should take a middle course in Petrella: retain the defense of laches but apply it only to claims for equitable remedies. II. LACHES IS AND SHOULD BE AN EQUITABLE DEFENSE Laches is a defense that can be invoked when the plaintiff has delayed in bringing a suit. But laches is not concerned merely with the fact of delay. It matters why the plaintiff delayed bringing the claim and what effect......

...I had an experience in 2001 that led me to profoundly rethink the effectiveness of some aspects of our medical system here in the United States.  I was on-call in house as the anesthesia provider for a military hospital where I worked as an active duty Air Force Nurse Anesthetist. It was a Saturday morning and I had just come on duty for a 24 call shift.   I heard an overhead page for "respiratory therapist stat to room 420".  I went up to the 4th floor to see what the situation was.  The nurse taking care of the woman in room 420 gave me a report about her patient.  The woman was a 75 year old who had been admitted with a diagnosis of pneumonia.  She had a medical history of CHF, HTN, COPD, NIDDM, and GERD.  I went into room 420 where this lady was receiving a nebulized albuterol breathing treatment.  She looked frightened and appeared very anxious.

Analyzing Wollstonecraft, Blake, and Wordsworth

...Rights of Women was one of the earliest feminist philosophical works that set the standard for the feminist phenomenon we know today. In A Vindication of the Rights of Women, Wollstonecraft states that it is indeed not a normal incidence that instated the variances between man and woman, but it is civilization and convention that introduced these differences. Furthermore, she positions herself to say that it is the way men are taught differently than women that causes contrasting principles and rifts between sexes. The following quote from A Vindication of the Rights of Women perfectly showcases my notions made in the previous sentence: “One cause of this barren blooming I attribute to a false system of education, gathered from the book written on this subject by men who, considering females rather as women than human creatures…” (152). In Joe Wright’s 2005 adaptation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, we are offered a somewhat accurate look into a post-Wollstonecraft world. The two Pride & Prejudice characters that best reflect Wollstonecraft’s feminist demarcations are Lydia Bennet and Mr. Wickham. As the film progresses, Lydia, the youngest of the Bennet sisters, becomes acquainted with Mr. Wickham and begins to display the very essence of what Wollstonecraft was trying to rebut in A Vindication of the Rights of Women. As Lydia’s infatuation with Mr. Wickham intensifies, she begins to act unsophisticated and juvenile and becomes ignorant to her family and Mr. Wickham’s......

...The four types of essay organization discussed in the course readings include persuasive or argumentative, cause and effect, comparison-contrast, and character analysis. These are considered expository essays because they all use evidence or facts in explaining a subject matter. According to the course readings, an expository essay is generated through the organization of ideas. This arrangement refers to information that deals with the location of people, places, or things; for example, the nearest planet to the farthest away from Earth.

...Strategies for Becoming an Effective Academic Writer The writing process that I used in the past was completely different from what I have learned to use in this class. In the past my teacher just taught us to get a piece of paper and start writing on our topic that we chose. Since I have started this class, I am learning how to correctly write an essay or any paper. I now know that there are different steps in the writing process that you have to follow to write an excellent paper or essay. I have learned that you have to understand the instructions of the assignment identify the purpose and analyze your audience when writing your paper. Drafting is the easiest step in the writing process for me to complete. Drafting is the easiest for me because to me it is easy to research information for a topic. There are plenty of resources that you can use to find information on any topic. Creating a thesis statement is simple because you are only stating your opinion on the subject of your paper. Outlining is also simple because you are gathering all your information into an outline. Documenting sources would be the easiest because you are just putting together your reference page, showing were you researched all of the information for your paper. The step that is the most difficult in the writing process is prewriting. Prewriting is the most difficult for me because you don’t know what you are going to write about. You have to decide what or who you want to write about. You really......
