Using these steps properly and fully develops the basic idea the writer is trying to communicate to the reader. The next important element is unity. Unity provides focus for the reader. It is the presence of a sentence that clearly identifies the main idea and provides details. This is very easy to achieve provided the steps to obtaining development are followed correctly.
Chris Street wrote an original research article, “Expository Text and Middle School Students: Some Lessons Learned”, and tells us that middle school students face difficulty reading expository texts because they were not taught how to read in this fashion while in elementary school. While in elementary school, they read short novels and chapter books, whereas, in middle school they are expected to read content area text. According to this article, teachers can help their middle school students overcome reading deficiencies by developing a student’s former knowledge on a subject before reading it. Street provides very good strategies on how to engage students with expository text, which consists of: before reading, during reading, and after reading. Before reading strategies include developing
It's about Ben Ross, an intelligent history teacher that decides to perform an experiment on his class called “The Wave”, which at first started out so simple and small, until The Wave became unstoppable and spread around the school in such a short period of time, affecting many people. This essay will express how high modality language, descriptive language, symbolism, dialogue, emotive language, persuasive language and rhetorical questions are used to teach us about conformity, power and manipulation. Through the prevalence of conformity in The Wave, Morton Rhue is able to shape our knowledge of the real world. Conformity is evident when members of a society act defiantly to the norm and set a standard for others to follow. Naturally as humans we either follow or lead, as one takes the podium others bask in their glory and direction.
Even those unfamiliar with financial decisions will see the danger in the overuse of such a policy – something that was later denied by the CEO of Lehman's. Describe the situation at Lehman Brothers from an ethics perspective. What's your opinion of what happened here?Failure To attribute Lehman's to "unprecedented adverse events in the financial markets" completely irresponsible overlooks the ethical behavior of employees and managers. Students should mention the culture of corruption that existed at Lehman's and the lack of controls that ultimately resulted in their downfall. An interesting finding was the acceptance of a rule, Repo 105, that allowed the company to write off and hide bad decisions.
When all the jobs of the future go to personal service jobs, will American children only know how to test or fail or to invest all their time into schooling for professions that will not pay? Alan S. Blinder an economics professor at Princeton covered this topic very well in his article “Will Your Job Be Exported”. Blinder broke down that in the future most jobs that can’t be completed by machine or technological advances will be
The perspective of subjectivism is the viewing of ethical situations as a reflection of what the beholder agrees to (Mackie, 1990: 17). Perspectives of egoism and Subjectivism assist in the interpretation of the fable of ‘Education as a Commodity’. Interpretation Ethical egoists wouldn’t ‘sacrifice his own good for the good of others’ (Regis, 1980: 60), but would value volunteering in this fable and the actions of Deidre, as being enriching to both, the volunteer; and who they volunteer for. To many egoists, volunteering work, purely for altruistic reasons is unfeasible, as altruism can be interpreted as ‘masking’ the actions of self-interest (MacIntyre, 1967: 466). If the true nature of volunteering is altruistic, pure subjectiveness would exclude egoism theories acknowledging these actions as anything other than egotistical in nature.
Meta ethics tries to make sense of the terms and concepts used in ethical theories such as Utilitarianism and Natural Law. Some people believe that ethical language is extremely meaningful as they argue it is essential to be able to define terms such as “good” and “bad” before we can even begin to discuss ethical theories. However others disagree with this and argue that moral statements are subjective so are meaningless, as they cannot be described as either true or false. Those who hold cognitive theories about ethical language would argue that ethical statements are not meaningless as they are about facts, and can therefore be proved true or false. Ethical Naturalism is a cognitive theory of meta ethics which holds the belief that
If one again relies on the Oxford Dictionary definition, it might be put forward that a more definite solution is in reaching distance. According to it, something that is effective is something that is capable of “producing the result that is wanted or intended; producing a successful result”. That means that for anyone or anything to be considered effective (which means not only teachers or teaching) it must produce positive results that may be objectively evaluated. Then, if one examines the Oxford definition for teacher, will one not discover that same necessity for positive results? It might be assumed that, while teaching might be merely an act of imprinting facts on the individuals being taught, one could expect that a teacher in their own right would be required to be effective.
Michael Tang English 21B/ Section Michelle Solotar June 1, 2011 America Is A Better Place For Children To Learn America is still referred as the country of innovation even when our youth is considered to be receiving poor education. “We Should Cherish our Children’s Freedom to Think” by Kei Ho raises a debate as he compares our country’s education with Japan’s system. Ho believes this freedom should be more appreciated, as he feels others tend to take this aspect for granted. Other foreign countries like Japan do not allow students complete freedom of expression. He states that it is important for children to use creativity to form their identity, expressing their thoughts with their personal individuality.
In my opinion, knowledge allows me to make my own decisions with freedom but I am able to understand the other realities through experience. Although philosophers insist that education is the process of learning different concepts and skills required to understand another reality, I will argue that experience has played a more important role in my education than the knowledge learned from others. In addition, I think that education’s role should be helping the people to choose freely rather than developing a just society. Essay 2 Role of Education in our life Today in modern world education plays a vital role in the society. In this article I am going to describe about the role of education in our day to day life.
