In the first paragraph of this paper the thesis statement is underlined.
Abstract: This paper discusses the merits of students enrolled in electronic schooling, termed "cyberschool." Students of cyberschools are in demand for knowledge gained from their education, and knowledge of the computers and electronics that they used to gain that education. Students retain and recall information learned in a cyberschool better than their traditionally trained peers. Also, the clear environment of the cyberschool enables students to succeed, where they would have been distracted, and failed, in a traditional school.
In this paper I make an argument against Buzz Bissinger's essay Innocents Afield. Bissinger's paper has made quite a few valid claims, however, he misses two facts, that high school sports offer more to students than offered by, school run, physical education classes, and that by being physically active through sports, students are given a statistically relevant increased chance at academic success.
Extracted from the first Paragraph: In an article written for City journal, Tweens: Ten Going on Sixteen, Kay S. Hymowitz argues that, in today’s society, children are growing up too fast (Hymowitz, 2008, pp. 245-249). Given the overwhelming evidence provided by Hymowitz, one may find that the argument is true and valid. However, upon a closer inspection of the evidence presented, the true conclusion, in this author’s opinion, is that children today are no more grown up than children of any other era. This is not to say that children today are not more advanced in certain areas; education and technology, both, could be said to be much more omnipresent than ever before.
This paper is an opinion piece about people convicted of date rape. "Date rape is a hideous deed that should never be accepted, and the people found guilty of such actions need to be held responsible"(McClure, 2010, p. 3).
Week 5 Final Project - Education: High School Dropout Prevention
Extracted from the first paragraph: In the United States, there is a crisis within secondary schools. Students are not staying in high-school long enough to receive their diplomas. The reasons range from an assortment of issues; forced into work, having to stay at home, too far to travel, disciplinary issues, or uninterested with high-school education. Fundamentally, high-school dropout rates can be improved by instructing families, students, and society in the significance of patience, ethics, and an inspiration for education.
