If he has a job that calls for him to improve writers’ techniques then he is doing just that with this argument and convincing proposal. He used the very strategies he described in his essay to write this essay, and it worked.

Britton Ody Griffin AP Language Am Lit A August 6, 2013 Outliers In the beginning of the book Outliers, by Malcolm Gladwell, the reader will learn the meaning of an outlier: something that is situated away from or classed differently from a main or related body. As the reader reads through the book, they come upon many different types of outliers and learn some very interesting and mind bobbling facts.

I said to myself after reading the first three paragraphs that “what does Superman have to do with this essay?” I really enjoyed this essay because it will make you look at things a little different than what you probably already do.
