Bump, Set, Spike! In the first few days of my summer class, ENGL 1301, we have looked at the significance of creating a successful argument. The main focus has been over the use of ethos, pathos and logos appeals in a writer or speaker’s argument in an attempt to persuade their audience that what they are saying is truth. To be recognized as a member of a discourse community, a person must learn the practices and distinctive communication used in that community, and be able to function as one of its valuable components.

Although the benefits of teaching and coaching can be questioned by many all it takes is that former or current athlete showing up one day and saying, “Coach thanks for all you have done for me, I couldn’t have done it without you.” and your ready to get going all over again. The levels of coaching that I hope to coach someday will be elementary all the way up to High School. I need to be around our club wrestling team at a young age, this will help teach the kids the things they need to know at an early age.

In the general sense, it is well known that persons react to frustration with aggression. Modes of adjustment to frustrations are important for human behavior and personality organization.

A projective test is a personality test designed to let a person respond to ambiguous stimuli, presumably revealing hidden emotions and internal conflicts.
Volleyball is a team sport, in which two teams that consist of six players face each other from the opposite sides of a sports court, separated by a net (Volleyball, Wikipedia (2007) Retrieved: 4 November 2012 from: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volleyball).

In order for a team to be successful, their strategic interaction has to be well developed. For that to happen, they have to be able to communicate effectively among themselves as well.
