  • Process Of Evaluation Your Answer
    416 words
    The Logic of Evaluation Along with questions there are answers, most questions must be evaluated before arriving to those answers. Usually when I am asking a question I go through a mental process of evaluating the question at hand before giving what I considered to be the most accurate answer. The purpose of my evaluation of the question is to rule out the other possible answers. Is evaluation the key to giving the, or getting the, correct answer, not always. However with evaluation of the ques...
  • Sense Of The First Four Rhetorical Questions
    275 words
    Harlem [Dream Deferred] Langston Hughes "What happens to a dream deferred?" , is the question asked at the beginning of the poem. The speaker uses powerful comparisons in his rhetorical questions that follow the opening line. These questions compare the dream deferred to simple yet very different things.

  • Lives Including Alice
    535 words
    The 1970's was a time of change. A time of revolution. War was the topic of nearly all conversations and sex and drugs were on everyone's minds. While boogie fever swept dance floors, young men were sent off to die in a war that they could never win. Richard Nixon was in office and his scandal was to influence politics for years to come. The bright blue bell-bottom pants with the pink and orange flowers sewed on were the coolest thing... oh excuse me, I mean the "grooviest" thing to have. Big ca...

    Managing Classroom Behavior Managing classroom behavior can be a difficult task, especially if you have a child who is always causing disturbances. Once you have identified that there is a problem, you should ask yourself six simple questions.

  • Surveys And Statistical Studies
    4,208 words
    The most common form of evidence is statistics. Statistics are a favorite evidence of many writers and speakers. They provide actual numbers in support of ideas and conclusions. If you can show that 75% of high schools seniors cannot find Washington State on a map of North America, then it is strong evidence for your contention that high school seniors are not being taught the geography of the United States. Such evidence is not only difficult to refute, it's often accepted as the final word in ...

  • Al Gore

    8 A. The article that I chose was Al Gore's MTV Appearance Hip-Hops form Music to Racial Profiling Concerns by Rick Pearson.

    The Breakfast Club (Intercommunications) John Hughes' 1985 film, The Breakfast Club, gives countless examples of the principles of interpersonal communication.

  • Philosophy The Question
    1,250 words
    The question is Philosophy. Why is it important? What makes it important? To answer theses questions you first have to know what philosophy is. Philosophy is defined as: the pursuit of wisdom; a search for a general understanding of values and reality by chiefly speculative rather than observational means. This is the written definition of philosophy, but I think philosophy can't be defined to just words. It's more then words. Philosophy to me is an attempt to understand the world. To understand...
  • Actions Of Bowen McCoy
    1,128 words
    After reading Bowen H. McCoy's, "The Parable of the Sadhu", I ask myself: Can stress or environmental conditions excuse the actions of Bowen McCoy or anyone in a similar situation? Joseph Badaracco says that "right-versus-right choices are best understood as defining moments; decisions that reveal, test, and shape". There is no doubt in my mind that Bowen McCoy's encounter with the Sadhu was a defining moment, but by not taking a stand and ultimately making sure of the Sadhu's survival, will the...
  • Student Change
    373 words
    Asking "why" is often a reasonable way to find out information. However, in some circumstances it limits the response and circumvents the objective for asking the question. When trying to resolve behavioral issues asking "why" tends to lead a student on a mental chase of cause and effect. While this process is generally helpful for critical thinking, it does not necessarily promote beneficial and on-going self-reflection. Watch someone when you ask "why" and you " ll often see her / his eyes loo...
  • Arendt Claims
    1,107 words
    Procedural - Hannah Arendt Sections 7 and 8 On Appearance In section 7 of the chapter on appearance in her book The Life of the Mind, Arendt is for the most part critiquing Descartes' "suspicion of man's cognitive and sensory apparatus". Descartes was trying to find the thinking ego or the soul whose reality and existence was beyond the "illusions of sense perception". Arendt claims that Descartes's fictitious creature res cogitans, which is bodiless and senseless, would not be able to distingui...
  • Tyger The Question
    1,131 words
    William Blake's "The Tyger", meant to be read in conjunction with Blake's "The Lamb", tells a tale of two sides. While "The Lamb" speaks of softness and goodness, "The Tyger" tells of a powerful and evil nature. Blake asks the Tyger the question "Did he who made the Lamb make thee" (line 20).

How can two creations be opposite in so many ways yet related-or are they related to each other "The Tyger" questions the truth of a two sided world a...
  • Tyrant For Thy Sake This Question
    794 words
    In William Shakespeare's sonnet number one hundred and forty-nine there is a very clear case of unrequited love. In a somber tone he outlines the ways in which he selflessly served his beloved only to be cruelly rejected. His confusion about the relationship is apparent as he reflects upon his behavior and feelings towards her. This poem appears to be written to bring closure to the relationship, but it could be argued that this poem is one final effort to win her affection. The first twelve lin...
  • Branch Of Philosophy
    989 words
    What does one think when they hear the word Philosophy Before I began this class, I really had no idea what the word Philosophy meant. I use to think it dealt with a bunch of really smart people trying to figure out the answers to life's most basic and essential questions. For example: Why are we here Is there a God Is their life after death Etc. What I failed to realize was that not only does Philosophy answers these questions but it also gets us to question things that we never once thought of...
