Academic Language Week 24 - Online Learning

Online learning is not an effective way of learning. One reason is that people learn at there own pace. For example, people are slow learners and other like to work ahead. If your teachers going to fast for you to understand then how are you going to learn anything. Its the same with people who like to speed up ahead. Another example is that people could have a condition where they suffer from being blind. How do expect someone to CLARIFY things online if they have a serious condition. Lastly, the DIFFERENTIATION with working off line outweighs working online.

Academic Language Week 22 - Felons Voting

Felons should not able to vote. Why, because when you commit a crime you should lose that privilege. Also, they could vote bad laws or bad people come to our government. Some people believe that some people’s criminal history isn’t RELEVANT to their right to vote. Those people who believe in like the constitution as a SOURCE, for felons, the “right” to vote is relative and it’s something that can be lost. There are good arguments on both sides of this COMPLEX issue. In my opinion, the safety of our well being outweighs everything else. Therefore felons should not be allowed to vote.

Poetry Previous Knowledge Paragraph

 My experience with poetry has always been something I always wanted to learn how to write. I had a friend who would always write poetry and she would always read it to me. I always thought that it was something very beautiful. I never really got the whole point of poetry because to me it was some words put together. I’ve tried to write poetry but it never really worked out for me. I guess it just has to come naturally. Basically, this year I hope to learn more about poetry because I really don’t get the style of writing.

Academic Language Week 21 - Steroids

People who play sports should not be allowed to take steroids. One reason is that there are many side effects for people who take them. Taking steroids is also, really bad for your health. For example, when you’re on them for a long PERIOD of time you might get a heart attack, become bald, or have mood swings. I don’t think you want that. Another reason is that for some people it’s a TRADITION, so they encourage it because it’s a PRIMARY for them to be stronger. So, as a result I think that people should never ever be allowed to take steroids.
