Today in Buddy Holly’s class I did not expect to be SCRIBE. It was supposed to be Beatrize’s turn, but since there is a field trip for AVID 2013 and I’m not going to be here for my SCRIBE, we switched.
Anyway, the SAT word for today is abhor. Abhor means to loathe or detest. The adjective and verb form of abhor is abhorrent and abhorrence.
Regarding the essay outlines, on prompt one there were syllogisms used. The essay needs a premise and a conclusion. The premise in prompt one is how cell phones distract people and the conclusion is how cell phones shouldn’t be permitted in certain areas.
(Emily liked my thesis)
In any essay, the thesis needs to include the extent one agrees or disagrees with the topic given.
Speaking of essays, EAP! TOMORROW!
Don’t fall into the trap of HASTY GENERALIZATION.
~Don’t be a racist, man. Never stereotype anyone! Luckily, Buddy Holly is marrying into a family of racists considering his anecdote about his mother-in-law to be and how she thinks black people are naturally athletic and the best at all sports~
Buddy Holly, “Example, Liono-ness.”
*The class laughs*
People are unlikely to stereotype unless it’s a joke in a community of that race.
Remember guys, be able to indentify arguments, state points in an essay, be clear, BOLD, and DON’T BE VAGUE.
Peace out, girl scouts.
