These anecdotes accentuate the problems that the Amish have when they participate in rumspringa, they help create a version of reality which Walker wants the reader to believe is the solemn truth. The dialogue used includes many profanities and colloquial language which exemplifies the subject's relaxed lifestyle and cruised approach to life and its challenges. The use of shocking and confronting dialogue is carried out to challenge and dispute the viewer's personal perspective on the contrasting Amish and modern civilised societies. Editing is a powerful tool in the construction of an argument used to amend our personal
This method is also a good way to encourage the exchange of ideas and opinions within the group as learners are more likely to relate to each other, discuss, and help each other further on in the course. A tutor may start this discussion by suggesting rules that they would expect and why, such as learners must be on time for the tutorials to prevent interruption and breaking the groups’ concentration. Some learners may feel strongly about swearing and may wish for a ban on this during lesson time to be included in their groups’ ground rules. The very nature of co operating to create this agreement promotes a mutual respect for each others views and
English Revision Task How have the texts studied in this elective challenged your ways of thinking about "People and Politics"? People and politics are able to represent their own ideas and perspectives by utilising different techniques to bring forward a stronger influence and convey meaning. The multiple methods and procedures in which to form representation has challenged my ways of thinking about 'People and Politics'. W.H. Auden utilises satire to communicate the negative perspective of dictators in "Epitaph of a Tyrant" (1939).
Visual learners need to see things in order to learn, aural learners are better when they hear the information, and reading/writing learners perform best reading information and writing it down. Kinesthetic learners are more hands on learners. A number of questions are asked on the webpage and determining on the way the questions are answered, it then scores the individual in each category. The VARK will show the individual’s scores in each area and the highest score is considered to be their best learning style. It then provides ideas in each category that demonstrates effective learning strategies that may be helpful based on their results.
To this end , teachers should not only be trained how to teach but also how to motivate . Narrating inspiring stories just like Malcolm X ‘s self-education could very well serve the purpose .Work Cited
Sendaris tells us how different things are when they happen to us, and when they don’t happen to us. In the article, Sendaris uses several rhetorical strategies to ensure that the audience gets his message. In satire, vices, follies, abuses, and shortcomings are “held up to ridicule, ideally with the intent of shaming individuals, and society itself into improvement.” While satire can be humorous, its “greater weapon is often constructive social criticism, using
I find Moliere’s play, Tartuffe, to be entertaining for the underlying message of historical hypocrisy which it sheds to light. After reading the comedy of Tartuffe, I can only agree that it is an intellectual whirlwind of classical genius which tantalizes even the modern mind by echoing to us the importance of scrutinizing the narratives and analyzing the flaws and follies alike which are evident even within our own era. Tartuffe stands out to me because of the power that resonated from the creation of this societal satire and the fact that unlike other works of the era which were forced to fall in line with a strict code of adherence generated by the aristocracy of the classical era, this piece served as a direct challenge to the narrative
He also explains principles of friendship and enmity as shared pleasure and pain. He discusses how to create in readers a sense of fear and shame and shamelessness and kindness and unkindness and pity and indignation and envy and indignation and emulation. Then he starts all over and shows how to create such feelings toward ideas in various types of human character' of "people" of virtue and vice; those of youth, prime of life, and old age; and those of good fortune and those of bad fortune." Aristotle warns us, however: knowing (as a good willed writer) how to get your readers to receive your ideas by making readers "pleased and friendly" or "pained and
This requires the readers to be able to analyse beneath the surface of the text rather than simply accepting and following the author's perspective. Of course critical literacy isn’t an entirely new concept for us. Since a young age our teachers have enforced critical literacy through our learning to give us the ability to question, investigate and challenge the relationships between language, social groups and practices over others. The significance of the ability for us adolescents to be able to become critically literate thinkers is very important. It allows us to become active thinkers and develop the ability to inquire and reflect on the societal concerns, interact and build connectedness with our life choices.
If we are to have a society that looks for the well being of all people, we must learn to recognize that as people we are diverse and must learn to embrace one another with love, respect, and honor each others’ uniqueness. For example, in “Race, Class, and Gender: An Anthology” by Margaret L. Anderson, and Patricia H. Collins (2010), provided a wealth of information in the narratives they produced from the different scholars and teachers they worked with and interviewed to make this book inspiring and an eye opener to understand our world better. Transformation is not easy and we must be willing to change the way we think on many different issues that deal with gender, race, discrimination, and acceptance of each other despite our differences. The narrative that really touched me the most was “From A Native Daughter”, by Haunani-Kay Trask. I have not appreciated history as much as I should have, not proud to say; however, after reading this narrative it opened my eyes and mind that not everything we read or hear about history is the truth.
