Therefore, I am implementing other ideas that will be more flexible making my writing a more gratifying process. I decided to just start writing and not using writing rules for my first draft. Anne Lamott, the author of “Shitty Firsts Drafts,” states that, “almost all good writing begins with terrible
It was what I had expected, before I read the book, I thought that the writer will argue how gaming is more effective in learning than the traditional method of reading. The strategies listed on page 91-92 would help a lot because there are crucial information that should help prove us understand what the author is trying to imply. There were a lot of parts in which the author included the beneficiary of reading books, which makes me confused and stayed off topic for a bit. Overall, the author was trying to convince that eventually the society will begin to see gaming as something better than reading books. I think the writer provided the facts of both reading and gaming to make a realistic approach towards the reader.
An effective way to tackle the problem, suggested by Diekhoff et al. (1996) is the Universities can provide support for students on the effective ways to cite sources and minimize the class size so that students would be able to obtain more instructions from the instructors. Personally, paraphrasing is probably challenging to handle, when some words have exact meanings in which it may be difficult to find another phrase or word to replace the originals without changing the meaning. To solve this problem, Yamada (2003) not that writers
I think the most helpful worksheet for this paper was the communication strategy worksheet. It really help me solved all the underlying questions beforehand so it was easier for me to write my first draft. Once I started writing my draft I found it to be very hard to not make a recommendation. I felt that my first draft was very unorganized because I begin putting more emphasis on other issues. If it wasn’t for the peer reviews, I
Good job! Now, I have some suggestions on how we can improve this paper, so let’s get started, shall we? Main Idea/Thesis: Let’s work on your thesis first, Ashley. I noticed that you were not able to present a clear subject and key points for discussion that are necessary for a good thesis statement. A thesis statement is important in any essay because it serves as the basis of your entire discussion.
The author is trying to get people to put their character ethics into perspective by introducing, in laymen’s terms, the foundations and skills which will help to build these characters but without the religious interventions. The overview of the book tries to prepare you so that when you get to the first habit, you will have a better understanding of how the habits came about. It explains the differences of the personality ethics most people possess today instead of the character ethics we were born with. It starts with some common problems that most people can relate to. Then it goes through the history of character ethics and how society seemed to have lost these ethics to personality ethics.
Introduction In the earlier exercises, I was so focused on understanding course material and different tactics that it actually strayed me away from applying them to my negotiations. Especially in my first two negotiations, I had a tough time incorporating what I knew about BATNA, initial offers, RP and AP; and actually made up those numbers as opposed to using strategy to figure them out. I also had a lot of trouble defining what information I needed out of my partner, which then made coming up with diagnostic questions very difficult. As we continued with the negotiation exercises, I started to get a flow of how to strategize. I started defining my own interests to come up with diagnostic questions, which also helped with defining my BATNA, initial offer, RP and AP.
In order for me to accomplish this goal I must read, write, and study heavily what I have learned from my lectures and classes. Another way is to study word synonyms and antonyms to gain a broad vocabulary, not for big words or being fancy, but for more precision of meaning. Words hold tremendous power and can be used to change the course of how individuals feel. Being able to speak and hold a conversation without . If everyone in the world, even if they didn’t agree on a subject, just accepted the fact we all have differences and kind of just lived with it instead
While he points out the transformation to establishing his suggested habits can be a long one, I have already seen changes in my personal way of thinking that I feel have helped shape my life for the better. In this paper, I will share some of my thoughts on what I like and dislike about Covey’s suggested plan, and how I might apply these habits to my future as a potential business leader. “Our basic nature is to act, and not be acted upon.” (75). While this might be our human nature, Covey introduces his habits with the advice to “be proactive.” After reviewing each habit, I found this habit to be the most important in that it is not possible to form the other habits without taking some sort of initiative. This was the perfect habit to introduce the rest because it showed the reader Covey’s direction from the beginning.
Hoping to gain a different perspective on the assignment, I met with fellow classmates to talk out my problem. It turned out that they were having the same issue with their essays, and through discussing my paper with them, I realized that my topic was too narrow to be easily supported by sources; the idea of Dorian growing older without growing up was interesting but could not easily be supported with sources outside the novel itself. With this in mind, I modified my thesis, claiming that though Dorian Gray demonstrates aesthetic behavior in The Picture of Dorian Gray, his fascination with artistic things serves less to pursue aestheticism and more to evade his dark past. In this manner, I argued, Dorian could be considered more of an escapist than an aesthete. At last I had an argument that could easily be supported by sources on aestheticism (e.g.
