“Social Excellence: We Dare You” By: Matthew Mattson, Jessica Williams, & Josh Orendi Copyright 2011 “The world would be better if…” This opening statement sets the tone of this powerful, challenging and thought-provoking book, as it introduces and expounds upon the idea of the concept of social excellence. This paper will try to retell the information the authors laid out in the pages of this book by summarizing their main arguments and points of emphasis. After that, it will specifically mention the things I liked and disliked about the book and wrap-up by relating this book to the theories and concepts of leadership we have learned within this class. Overview The main idea the authors are trying to get across is the concept of social excellence and how it can be used to change the world. They define social excellence through the following sentence phrases, “Social excellence: a state of perpetual generosity, curiosity, positivity, and openness to limitless possibility.
It also shows the importance of this action. The readers are aware of the problem from the start and therefore Coleridge is ensuring that anything that happens in any other parts of the poem will be as a result of the mariner shooting the albatross. Part one has a fairly rigid structure which very rarely breaks from four lined stanzas. This part is written in ballad which have often been criticised for their rigid structure. However, the structure is put to good use by Coleridge in this part of the story as this is the very first part of a seven part poem.
Murray mentions the proporties of a great and succesful writer. Those proporties are that: developing reading skills, analyzing the different points and having a kind of responsibility while reading the first drafts. As he explains, the most important skill is
The title interlinks with the aspect of time “Enduring” which means continuing. The significance of time within the novel has been used in a variety of different ways. McEwan appears to use time as a driving theme of the text as the first chapter opens with ‘the beginning is simple to mark’ and continues further on with ‘this was a pinprick on the time map’. This immediately draws the reader’s attention to the idea of beginnings, endings and sequences. Later on in the chapter, McEwan continues with these ideas as Joe says ‘it marked the beginning and, of course, an end.’ This consciously alerts the reader to the start and finish of 'chapters' in Joe's life.
How do the authors of NLMG and Asylum draw us in? As readers, we are most likely to base our decision on whether to continue reading a book, based on the first few pages, or even paragraphs of a book. The books ‘Never Let Me Go’ (NLMG) by Kazuo Ishiguro and ‘Asylum’ by Patrick McGrath both incorporate similar techniques in order to entice the reader to continue reading. They both use first-person narrative, as well as the theme of mystery and ambiguity throughout. It could also perhaps be argued that there is a sense of closure in the opening section of the two novels, allowing the reader to make potential linkages throughout the novel.
The biggest thing that I learned about learning is that there are many methods of learning and teaching. I found that the way Quinn taught through his book Ishmael very interesting. My last thought about what I learned through reading the book Ishmael is that I want to be a Leaver. In this book, you will be challenged in learning whether you are a Taker or
This is where the writer grabs the reader's attention. Because of its purpose, it is often the first sentence of the paragraph. It is followed by three subtopics that develop the thesis. Between this paragraph and all paragraphs of the essay, there needs to be some kind of a transition word, phrase, or sentence. Next, the body of the essay contains paragraphs two through four.
Amanda Walsh Ms. Weston ENG 3U May 2nd 2013 The Odyssey and Room, a critical Analysis Throughout life people encounter many trials and tribulations, which help them to grow and discover who they truly are. This is demonstrated in Emma Donoghue’s novel Room and Konachalovsky’s film The Odyssey, based on Homer’s epic poem. Thus without the separation and departure stage, the hero would miss out on important lessons and initiation experiences. Similarly, the road of trials is imperative for the hero to discover themselves through different learning experiences, so they may prepare themselves for the return. Consequently, for a hero to be completely successful, they must experience the return to be at peace with their journey.
The application of these lessons learned can be carried forward throughout the remainder of educational career and the duration of my work career. Our textbook, “The Wisdom of Teams”, states that teams are important for a lot of reasons, but if you boil it down the primary reason being that teams are “inextricably” linked to performance (Teams, 44) Delving deeper, one can begin to see why teams often create giant leaps in productivity. Personal experience has been that a team with a strong vision builds the initial connection that will lead to a “true” team. Once that connection is formed, the mystery that we defined as synergy in class takes over. This synergy takes all of the talents of the team and focuses the energy into a force that is greater than the sum of its part.
