I am going to talk about the ad I chose in the fourth post of my blog. My ad is about a speech of a politician. I analyze the rhetorical situation of her speech by showing the main points which makes her more effective than the other opponent candidates in the election. My position is that I am on her side and support her for upcoming presidential election. After I read the ad, my reaction was very positive because I think she is the right person for the government due to her actions and behaviors. The opponent party candidates follow a hard attitude with zero tolerance on minority groups and abuse their civil rights by targeting themselves in the social media. It makes me very offended and feel sorry about them which pushes me to step up for them. The policy of the United States has always been based on civil and political rights in its long history as well as equal treatment for all. The first ten amendments of the constitution is about human rights and freedom, so I after I saw discriminations for a specific minority because of being a member of that minority group in the United States. As a result, I decided to support the opposite side and believe that most people think the same way I do. In my opinion, the most logical way to write a paper is organization of outline. If you organize your paper step by step from introduction to conclusion, it makes everything easier for you and brings out a well-organized essay.
In the third post of my blog, I am going to talk about my experience for the first assignment of my English class by using a prewriting technique which is a writing to generate and express ideas in order to create a well-organized paper. At the beginning, it was hard to find an ad for my paper because when I see a commercial for any product on TV, I always change the channel. It is one of the habits I have, so my ad was supposed to be a documentary about something. Being a son of a politician in the government, it was easy for me to choose the best ad which was about politics. First of all, I made a little research to find the topic of my essay. Then, I listed every idea and information. And then, I circled ideas that interested me and came up with an ad that supported a politician for upcoming president election of United States. I took notes about my assignment and highlighted the significant ideas and ended up with a specific topic for my essay. After that ,I made a brief analysis about the rhetoric of the advertisement of my choice and compared and contrasted with the perspective of the opponent party to achieve the bullet points of my paper. Finally, I finished my analysis and made a game plan for my first paper.
For this week’s post, I am going to analyze the rhetorical situation of Sir Ken Robinson’s Ted Talk “Schools Kill Creativity”. The context of the Ted Talk is how the education system of public schools affects critical thinking and interpretation in negative ways. The structure of public schools is based on core courses math, science and history which makes the other creative classes such as art and music seem less important. For instance, I went to a public high school and some classes like art, music and photography were not required. They were elective courses because there is no question about art, music in SAT, ACT, etc. This causes that students do not take those types of classes unless they are interested in; however these classes are extremely efficient for child development including decision making, visual learning, social life and character. The audience of Sir Ken Robinson’s Ted Talk is students as well as people who are responsible of this. The purpose of Sir Ken Robinson is to change this system in order to make our generation better. After I watched the ted talk, I liked his stance on this issue in public schools because I agree with his point of view and totally support. I think he doesn’t argue for something, he tries to inform something clearly which makes his speech valuable and appealing for the society. His speech would less effective if he wrote a paper about this instead of making a speech. The Ted Talk of Sir Ken Robinson analyzes the issue that schools destroy creativity. His speech demonstrates that he is willingly to produce an action or change reality through his thoughts. He steps up to point out a common problem “lack of creativity” due to the system in public schools which brings out positive outcomes for parents, students and officials to notice and do something.
In my first post, I am going to talk about my writing process. There are lots of different methods to write; however I am going to explain what I do if I have an academic essay. When I read the essay question and nothing comes to my mind at the moment. I need some time and research in order to have some ideas. For instance, I would like to describe how I wrote my last paper briefly.
First of all,I read the essay question carefully and made a research to get some basic information about the topic of the paper. Then, I brainstormed ideas and wrote them down on a paper. After I was overwhelmed with ideas, I started to narrow those ideas down and developed a thesis statement. And then, I planned out my paper and began introduction and body paragraphs. I summarized all my points in my conclusion and gave my message. After I finished my essay, I reread my essay to see my mistakes. Then, I started editing my grammar, punctuation and spelling errors. Finally, I had someone read my paper to double check and then submitted it.
I am kind of constricted by rules and willingly to stick with the plan. I do share my work if someone asks because I believe that everybody has different point of view, so we are all related to each other’s ideas. He can inspire me on the feedback and cause a positive outcome on my work that brings out a better work. I use the almost same method for academic essays and non-academic essays. When I have an academic essay, I pay attention to every steps of my writing process and spend much time for research; however, I be less rigorous and careful for my non-academic essays. I don’t have a different process for a blog post than a paper, The only difference is between process of a blog than process of a paper is that I spend less time on blog than paper because of their work loads. I feel more comfortable on writing a blog than writing a paper even though this is my first time posting something on a blog. In my opinion writing a paper seems more complex than writing a paper because there are some basic rules you can’t skip for academic essays; however, writing a blog is kind of free writing. As a result, I talked my writing process with details and my opinions about academic and non-academic essays.
