Hello, Andrea. This is Marie E. and, I will be your e-structor who will help you in your paper. Shall we start now? *Strengths of the essay: I like that you included dialogues in your work. Here’s an example: “Caitlin called and said, “My Mom’s dead!” Dialogues are important because they help your readers visualize your experience.
I believe Stimach’s essay followed the criteria of a successful argument by persuading me with strong details throughout the entirety of the argument. I think this argument would be a useful teaching tool to put in the textbook, Writing Arguments, because the author backed up her claims with reliable sources and responded to opposing views. Her argument was organized and she gave three specific reasons why students shouldn’t get married in college. Quality Sources One reason this is a good argument is that Stimach uses multiple pieces of factual evidence to support her claims. She moves from one topic to another with ease using facts from other sources frequently.
The book I chose for my independent reading project is called “Burned” by Ellen Hopkins. The project I chose to do is a book box because the book I’ve read has a lot of items that correspond to the events and characters in my book. The items I have chosen from my book is a journal, a diaper, a ring, a cell phone, and a pregnancy test. The first item I chose was a journal. The reason I chose this item is because in the book, the main character Pattyn Von Stratten used a journal write down all her troubles because her librarian Ms. Rose told her it would be good for her.
* The essay was written May/ June 1995. He wrote it for a magazine (Civilization under “Lost Arts” column). Content * I would like to learn the process of mummification.

Aunt Fay writes to her niece Alice in the hope of teaching her about Austen and her writing and what better way to do that than by direct reference to Austen’s most successful text, Pride and Prejudice? Weldon in turn helps the actual reader understand Pride and Prejudice by commenting on the characters’ behaviour and the plot by giving her personal opinion, as well as identifying typical language features and explaining why Austen is valued today. She expresses empathy for Mrs Bennet which encourages the reader to reconsider their own opinion Her use of first person language tells the reader that they are reading a biased opinion, but also helps the reader trust Weldon as she is speaking
A Secret Sorrow and A Sorrowful Woman Comparison The first short story that we were instructed to read is called A Secret Sorrow. It was written by Karen van der Zee, a successful romance writer. The story, in which we were to make comparisons with A Secret Sorrow, is called A Sorrowful Woman. This short story was created by Gail Godwin, who graduated from the University of North Carolina and the University of Iowa with a Ph.D. in English. In the excerpt from A Secret Sorrow, the main characters are Kai and Faye.
Not only does this story represent life and death but our group also felt like this story was about hope. When I read Makenzie Flaska’s Paper “Life, Death and Moths,” I see that to her this story is about hope. “Abuelita taught the narrator many things and it may have taken her awhile to understand them, but I feel like she finally got it at the end of the story “said Flaska. I agree that this story is both about hope, rebirth, and many other things. It depends on how you take in the story.
Reading is an important part of everyday life. That’s why me and my mom read the book “The Glory Field” and had an interview. We talked about the protagonist of the book, the setting of the book, and the plot. The main conflict me and my mom had was “Should Lizzy had went along with Lem and Joshua?”. The interview was exciting and we mostly had the same views about the story.
What is reading rhetorically? When you read rhetorically “you engage in this kind of reading, you look for the rhetorical strategies of the writer -- the patterns, structures, figures, & methods that a writer uses in order to make her/his point. This kind of reading can, in turn, help you to strategize your own approach to creating effective texts for particular audiences and purposes” (Malea Powell 1) Thorough out this semester we have reviewed several rhetorical readings. Although in the beginning, I never quite understood what the author was truly trying to say, but now I do. Understanding this form of reading can be very helpful in my future education.
Personal Theory Renee Bailly CJHS/400 June 25, 2015 Cayla Flowers Personal Theory At the conclusion of this course, Theories and Practices: Human Services in Criminal Justice, I can say I learned a lot about the various theories of psychotherapy in counseling. Some of these theories operate on the basis of recognizing errors in thinking and correcting those errors. Other theories focus on multiculturalism and the fact that all clients are unique and deserve to be treated as such. The textbook literature and discussions with class mates gave insight needed to create my own intervention theory. When creating my personal theory, I chose to involve both cognitive and multicultural approaches.
