Thompson did a good job of making her argument persuasive with her use of the three persuasive pathologies. The three persuasive pathologies; credibility, emotional appeal, and reasoning, are used to draw in the audience to believe the author. Providing documented studies and researched information will help give the author credibility. Respected people tend to be more credible as well. For example, the educated, the heroes, the icons, and those with a good head on their shoulders are always more believable.

Another great addition in the book is "The five laws of gold" which seem to give more guild lines on investing. The book was pretty clear that you should know a lot about the felid you wish to invest in, and that one should not invest in anything that promises absurdly good returns. These are points I will always put in mind when investing. Although, I am kind of worried about investing but I learned from the book that even the most conservative of investments will pay better than cash stuffed in a mattress for a rainy day. If you do something, something will happen.

When comparing and contrasting all three essays, Paulo Freire’s “Pedagogy of the Oppressed” is more persuasive since it analyzes the crisis in education and provides an immediate and possible solution. “Thinking as a Hobby” is a written example of criticizing. The essay discusses the three different levels of thinking; which are grade one, two and three. The first grade mentioned is the three since it’s the most common one and it’s the one the writer defines as “feeling rather than thought” (Golding 185). The writer continues to establish that grade two thinkers are the ones able to detect contradictions and those who posses the ability of critical thinking.
These cement, in the reader's mind, the relevancy and relationship of each of the subtopics to the thesis statement. Finally, the fifth paragraph is the summary paragraph. It is important to restate the thesis and three supporting ideas in an original and powerful manner as this is the last chance the writer has to convince the reader of the validity of the information presented, because the purposes of the first and fifth paragraph are so similar that some writers construct them at the same time. They will edit them, as necessary, as they do with
Hume’s and Kant’s approach to knowledge Arguably, Hume was the most influential British empiricist philosopher. His intention to reform what he saw as a mistaken philosophical system led him to elaborate a new doctrine of knowledge where reason and experience were – quite sharply – separated and confined to different realms. In fact, at the centre of his philosophical system lays the notion of ‘impressions and ideas’ as the only way to gain knowledge. He argues that knowledge is based on impressions, which are the vivid and direct sensorial experiences with things; and ideas, which are mental representations of these impressions. Hume distinguishes simple from complex ideas and makes the claim that “all our ideas or more feeble perceptions are copies of our impressions or more lively ones”.
It might be helpful to give an example. 5. Identify the three standard replies to this objection (see lecture notes) and then choose ONE to explain in more detail. 6. Argue that your chosen reply either does or doesn’t really succeed in defending Classical Utilitarianism.
In the right hands assessment can inspire, motivate and improve learning and there is a wealth of evidence to support this view. It is perhaps important at this stage to make a definite distinction between assessment ‘of’ learning and assessment ‘for’ learning. Assessment of
