English 1302 Final Essay The semester has definitely been an interesting one and I must say that English 1302 made a big contribution to that. The purpose of this course was to enhance writing, editing, and research skills but in this class much more was gained. There were many different methods used to make sure the class understood completely what was expected throughout the course. I would have to say yes, English 1302 has improved my skills needed to write effectively. The first thing you think of when writing a paper is to take a pen and paper and jot down your own personal thoughts on the subject at hand. Not realizing that there has to be a structure put in place by defining what type of paper is being written, the point that is being addressed, and the audience the paper may be targeted towards. Without acknowledging those things we are just going off a whim with no leading direction. The lack of research will cause an idea to become ineffective because the reader will not have any proof or fact that what is being written hold any truths. It would appear as mere opinions. Not to say we can’t be personal in some subject matter but we must also remember to stay biased in most. Editing in the class was really a big lesson learned because in most classes you’re just used to the teacher going over assignments and making corrections in the infamous red pen. Though editing in this particular class took a different turn because we as the students got edit each

Why I deserve an A
Everyone wants to believe they deserve an A in a course if they did all of the assigned work on time, but more goes into an A than just your school work passed in. An A student attends all classes they possibly can, with the exception of illness and other duties. They also have a positive attitude and never complain about an assignment or its due date. Lastly, an A student works hard to produce material at the best of their ability.…

Shakespearean Sonnets and the Tradition of Sonnet Writing
In order to understand sonnets, we need to understand the basic meaning of a traditional sonnet. A traditional sonnet, has resemblances with doing a crossword. It is a puzzle to make the parts fit; there is some logical tease, and you can consider going over individual lines, like crossword clues, as you continue daily life. There is also a knock-on effect. If you change a line…

Bravery is something that can come in many different forms. Bravery is not necessarily
something we have to overcome everyday, but it is something that people will have to do in there
life at some point. It is not always when someone is being fearless but when we stand up for
our beliefs, confront our fears and overcome them . One little act of bravery can affect the
ENGLISH FINAL: COMPRESSED NARRATIVE
By Victoria Fogarty
Due: Monday 25th August
Rushing through the automatic sliding door to the hospital, I could feel my heart in my stomach. Abruptly, I stopped. The hospital corridors had an extremely dreary and uncomfortable vibe. Walking down the long and winding hall, I noticed that there were a large number of rooms on the left and the right. Around me doctors and nurses bustled by in their starch white uniforms, stethoscopes draped around their necks…

5/13/15 Final Paper
In this English compensation class I really enjoyed two specific poems that I will be discussing here. My Papa’s Waltz by Theodore Roethke and also Those Winter Sundays by Robert Hayden. These two poems really stuck out while reading because I can relate to both poems in the same but also in different ways. I think both poems are similar but My Papa’s Waltz has a different identity than Those Winter Sundays.
Those Winter Sundays by Robert Hayden…

The Great McDaniel
Have you ever wondered what it takes to catch a reader’s attention? For most authors it's quite hard figuring out what can continue for many years to be attention grabbers. Most authors can usually grab a reader’s attention, but one author can really pull them in and make them read all of her books. Lurlene McDaniel is a fantastic author. She has written over 70 teenage books. There are some books that grab your attention…
A famous philosopher of the eighteenth century, Immanuel Kant was a deontologist who characterized humankind by reason and autonomy, or self-governance. In life, there is only one thing that is always and everywhere good. This is a good will, when one chooses to act in accordance with a universal law. With a good will, one must acknowledge the two types of imperatives: hypothetical and categorical. While the hypothetical imperative is non-morally attached to an end result, more important to Kant…

There are various legal methods that can determine a “good” jury. However besides a clean record, there is not a valid way to evaluate the integrity of a chosen juror. A person with no violent background and a peaceful exterior could be prejudicial in a trial as proven in the movie Twelve Angry Men. A prime example of a good juror is Juror 8. He critically challenged the other jurors to reconsider their vote. Another…
Poor Police Performance
Does the name William J. Whitfield 3rd ring a bell with anyone? Will Whitfield is just one of many unsuspecting victims of a police officer who has performed poorly. Whitfield was shot and killed in a supermarket in 1997 by a New York police officer that had mistaken Whitfield’s keys for a gun (Police Brutality… ¶1). The cause for this “lash-out” as some may see it could be closely related to stress. Police officers may not realize that they could be in a situation…
Imagine the past five media images you have seen of women. It's highly likely that most of them were either depicting a mother or a woman dressed a touch on the scandalous side. Modern day media portrays women in a negative light nowadays, and also setting high standards that are almost impossible to meet. Throughout history, women have always been seen as inferior to men and expected to fulfil their every desire. Every historical reference, from the Bible to an old western movie, teaches society…
