•   “Sex sells” has been the main motto for many companies when it comes to advertising. Advertisements are the way companies get the attention of different types of consumers to get them to buy a product. Comp

  • We have all heard the expression, “honesty is the best policy”, but is it? If it was the best policy then why do people lie so much? What causes a person to lie? Fear is the reason. Fear is the main factor of

  • Outline
    I. Introduction
    a. Mayor was not wrong about lying to his dad about playing soccer because Mayor is being pushed to do something he does not want to do, he was compared too much to his brother, and his dad was putting the male Hispanic stereotype on him.
    II. His dad was pushing him to do something he did not want to do
    a. Mayor does…[Read more]

  • I drew the scene when Mayor is lying to his parents about being in soccer. This scene is important because Mayor’s dad, Raphael, pushes him to join soccer even though he is not good at it. Raphael wants him to be like his brother, but does not understand that he is different, and is not good at soccer. Mayor lying to his dad can lead him to h…[Read more]

  • My writing process started off with getting a topic. Once I had the topic I started to organize my thoughts and think of what I was going to say. After I had it figured out I started doing research and started adding the information together, and backing up my points.
    The strength is, that I gave good points to back up my point, and I offered a…[Read more]

  •             Is It worth fighting and risking everything for something you believe in? Many people take the risk to fight for things they believe in. Colin Kaepernick, a professional football player, is one of

    • My writing process started off with getting a topic. Once I had the topic I started to organize my thoughts and think of what I was going to say. After I had it figured out I started doing research and started adding the information together, and backing up my points.
      The strength is, that I gave good points to back up my point, and I offered a good solution. I think the weakness was that I was not able to connect the points so good with my solution, there could have been more information that could have been added.
      What I did well was that I was able to get the points to connect my solution. What I struggled with was that I did not get enough points to support my solution, and I did not back it up enough.

  • My audience are the people who are against Colin kneeling for the national anthem.
    My audience value respect for their country, and want people in the U.S. to show respect for the country.
    Yes, my reasons are in line with their values because these people who are against the protest think that it is disrespectful for their country, but I show…[Read more]

  • In order for someone to change my views on something is to provide convincing details about the topic. It is not easy to change my opinion on certain views. There are a lot of topics in which I am stubborn about, and it is nearly impossible to change my view. If someone were to want to change my view they would have to prove me wrong. I would want…[Read more]

  • What I did well was I gave a good over all story, and I was able to meet the requirements. I felt that the story was really entertaining, and I gave a lot of information on what I learned.
    I struggled with the title, and giving information on what I learned. I was not sure how to make a good title with my story, the title I put I was not really…[Read more]

  • I stood there nervous and tired, with the rest of my class. It was my first Karate exam, so I did not know how it worked, but I was glad I was over with it. We were told to be seated on the floor. Once we were

    • What I did well was I gave a good over all story, and I was able to meet the requirements. I felt that the story was really entertaining, and I gave a lot of information on what I learned.
      I struggled with the title, and giving information on what I learned. I was not sure how to make a good title with my story, the title I put I was not really satisfied with it, but I could not think of any other title. I had a lot information on what I learned, and I was not sure what was more important and how to organize it.
      I feel like I deserve a B because I was able to put something I learned, but I did not focus on a certain thing i learned. I feel like what I put was very general.

  • The point of my literacy is to give a story of the time I learned self-defense doing something I thought I was not going to enjoy. The readers should learn that it is always important to try something before judging it. It matters because karate seemed like a very boring idea but I was able to join it after I gave it a shot.

  • The changes I want to make to my Literacy Narrative are add dialogue, and description. As was revising my draft I saw that there is more dialogue, and description I can add to make the story more vivid. I can also add more examples of what I learned to better describe the story. Finally I want to the sponsor that helped me out.

  • The story I want to propose for my literacy essay is when I learned karate. While I was learning karate I also learned that karate is not about fighting, but about self-defense. My karate teacher taught me different techniques on how to defend myself in different occasions. I also learned that I can end up liking something I am not attractive too…[Read more]

  • My Literacy Sponsor
    My Literacy sponsor was my karate teacher. When I was just joining karate I was scared of being around so many people. As time went by my teacher taught me how to loose fear, and he taught me also how to defend myself. Karate is used for self-defense not for picking a fight with random people. My teacher taught me different…[Read more]
