Sanford J. Ungar, president of Goucher College in Baltimore, Maryland, describes misperceptions pertaining to the liberal arts and his response to each in “The New Liberal Arts”. A misperception means to misunderstand or have a mistaken belief about something. Sanford Ungar’s use of this word when writing the article predisposes the reader to his thoughts on the subject and, therefore, the reader is automatically inclined to believe that what Ungar says is true. The liberal arts involves taking courses and procuring a degree in the area of Arts or Sciences. These courses will be in general areas of study, like philosophy, mathematics, literature and so.
Carmen Mejia RWS 200/Professor Copeland Rhetorical Analysis 25 September 2011 Project One: Rhetorical Analysis Many individuals believe that American life is purposefully programmed by their leaders to be simple and easy, in order to "deprive citizens from having to actually think for themselves and be independent" (154). John Taylor Gatto, an award-winning educator and ardent libertarian, is one of those individuals who argues that “we,” as in Americans, “are a nation of children” (155). Through his usage of rhetorical appeals such as ethos, pathos and logos, Gatto can construct an effective, thorough argument in his essay Against School. Gatto effectively uses personal anecdotes and ethical appeals in order to establish a general validity with his audience. He would also establish his own ethos by including his support for dignified persons that would validate his argument.
I agree with what Graff says and also agree when he says, “The challenge, as a college professor Ned Laff has put it, “is not simply to exploit students’ nonacademic interests, but to get them to see those interests through academic eyes” (p.302). I strongly believe this is true, I wish teachers would really take this into consideration. The author also reminds us of his own adolescent experience. Graff was anit-intellectual as a young student until he entered college. Graff disliked books very much and only cared for sports.
Lee Bollinger most certainly did not deliver a proper introduction. An introduction is designed for one speaker to introduce another. “When you introduce one speaker to another, you want them to get interested in each other and to like each other: You want speaker and audience to be interested and feel warmth and friendliness. Also a speaker should give background information to enhance the speaker’s credibility with the audience (Hamilton Gregory, Public Speaking for College and Career).” Also and introduction should never insult or offend the next speaker. In lee Bollinger speech he accused Ahmadinejad of being petty and cruel and criticized his dictatorship as a president.

Journal 03: America Tony Hoagland’s poem “America” uses specific nouns and metaphors to tell readers that America is too obsessed with material objects and self-satisfaction. Hoagland uses these nouns and metaphors to hide truth from the naked eye, specific diction is also used in combination with these metaphors to expose corruption in American society. In the opening lines, Hoagland writes, “Then one of the students with blue hair and a tongue stud / Says that America is for him a maximum-security prison / Whose walls are made of Radio Shacks, Burger Kings, and MTV episodes.” Hoagland almost lists the details of American trends by mentioning hair color and piercings, and by describing businesses like Radio Shack which sell 70-inch flat screen televisions, which are completely unnecessary, and fast food restaurants like McDonald’s that give super-sized food portions. These allow readers to immediately see the ridiculous
With reference to this, if students shy away from attaining greater dreams and goals and argue that they are not bright enough, then that is only an excuse. As the president of the university declares, there is no such thing as smartness; it is simply how much people try to get what they need and desire since lethargy and the thought that someone is smart will not take them anywhere (TED, 2013). The four pillars of success, he confirmed, were forming community amongst the students, high expectations, using researchers to create researchers and educational faculty getting concerned with their students’ affairs (TED, 2013). The high expectations create a feeling of curiosity
Our country prides itself on encouraging its citizens to better themselves through education. (P) While its priority has been high school graduation, many jobs now require college degrees, making higher education more important than ever. While I understand that every American should be expected to sacrifice during this hard time, just as we were in World War II, I feel that this particular sacrifice would put our country in an even worse state. (S) Our work force will not be prepared to handle nor understand the advancements that we have strived so hard to achieve. College is made to prepare students with the newest information possible, so that we can constantly be improving ourselves and be able continue to compete with the world’s leading nations.

Name of Student: Lai Chun Tat Student ID: 12073874D Class: TUT007 Introduction In 2009, a controversial and hit film was released, called “The Invention of Lying”. In this movie, the leading actor keeps lying to gain extra advantage in a world without dishonesty, as he realized that it is far more advantageous lying than not to.

Shirky immediately establishes his credibility with The Washington Post readers by acknowledging his occupation as a professor in the field of social media. With this statement, he also diffuses any counter-arguments directed towards his insight and familiarity with modern technology. Furthermore, Shirky asserts that multi-tasking is a negative consequence of allowing laptops, tablets and phones to be used in class. He elaborates on the negative effects of multi-tasking by stating, “We’ve known for some time that multi-tasking is bad for the quality of cognitive work, and is especially punishing of the kind of cognitive work we ask of college students” (Strauss 4). To substantiate his position against the unproductive nature of multi-tasking, Shirky qualifies his statements with research from a Standford University study.
