Performance Task Unit II
The Declaration of Independence: How Does it Stand Up Today?
When Thomas Jefferson and the Founding Fathers conceived and created the Declaration of Independence, they made some very important observations and claims about the nature of mankind and the proper function of government. As time has gone on, many important changes have occurred in the United States.
Think about the message proclaimed by the Declaration of Independence. Then think about what life is like now for the citizens of the United States.
Your assignment is to write a persuasive essay, using the elements we have discussed in class (claim, counterclaim, refutation, call to action, ethos/logos/pathos, forms of support such as facts, statistics, examples, anecdotes) that addresses the following prompt:
Prompt: Has America succeeded in realizing the Founders’ vision?
If so, explain how.
If not, what has gone wrong?
Research
Your performance task must include information that you have found doing research. Your research can be from a .org, .edu, .gov, website, newspapers, books, magazine.
Performance Task Requirements

  • One to two full pages.
  • Use MLA format
  • Do not write in first person
  • Include a title
  • Do the prewriting
  • Include a works cited page
  • Include at least four in-text citations
  • Follow suggested paragraph layout. This will make sure you include all persuasive elements.

Suggested Paragraph Layout:
Paragraph 1: Introduction. You want to establish the idea  of your prompt. Your reader should know that you’re going to be looking at the promise and intent of the Declaration of Independence and whether or not it has been fulfilled.
Make sure to include your claim.
Do not:
–Introduce yourself
–Saying “I’m going to be writing about . . . ‘
Paragraph 2: Supporting paragraph. You now need to give support for your claim. 
Use facts or statistics or examples or an anecdote to support your claim.
Paragraph 3: Another supporting paragraph. You need to give additional support for your claim. Use either facts or statistics or examples or an anecdote to support your claim, but do not use the same type of support that you used in paragraph 2.
Paragraph 4: Give a counterclaim. This should be a common reason why someone would disagree with your claim. You might use several sentences to present this.
Then give your refutation, explaining why the counterclaim is wrong. This needs to be convincing! You can include facts or statistics or examples or an anecdote to support your refutation.
Paragraph 5: Conclusion. 
Your conclusion should address your prompt and claim, but:
Do not give any new supporting information.
Do not repeat sentences you have already written
Do not say “I have told you,” or “I have written,” or anything like that.
Include a call to action.
Class Brainstorm Session
Idea Generation: To help us get started, we want to come up with some ideas as a class. Sometimes we learn a lot from considering other peoples’ ideas and viewpoints. Sometimes we harm ourselves by refusing to listen to others. It’s okay to disagree. It’s not okay to ignore or dismiss others just because their ideas are different.
So I want you to come up with one idea for each side of our topic. This will require that you consider both sides of the argument.
1. What is one way in which the United States has followed through on the ideas presented in the Declaration of Independence? Be specific, don’t just say, “It’s a good country.” That’s too vague. In what way is it a good country?
2. What is one way in which the United States has not followed through on the ideas presented in the Declaration of Independence? Be specific, don’t just say, “It’s a bad country.” That’s too vague. In what way is it a bad country?
Research Sources: List five internet sources that you believe would be sources of reliable information that students could use.
Prewriting
My claim:
America has failed in realizing the Founding Fathers vision
My counterclaim:
My refutation:
My call to action:
Paragraph support: What facts, statistics, examples, or anecdotes will I include to support my claim?
Paragraph support: What facts, statistics, examples, or anecdotes will I include to support my claim?
Paragraph support: What facts, statistics, examples, or anecdotes will I include to support my claim?
Paragraph support: What facts, statistics, examples, or anecdotes will I include to support my claim?

>Article writing homework help

1) Will readers recognize the story that is the subject of the paper?  Has the writer stated the title and author of the work at (or very near) the beginning of the introduction? – The author does a good job of explaining the topic of the paper as well as ensuring the title and the author of the work are in the intro,
2) Does the introduction adequately prepare readers for the writer’s argument?  Do readers need a brief summary of the story’s plot?  Or do you feel that the essay contains too much plot summary rather than argument? – The introduction is good as it gives us a brief summary. I feel the argument Is kind of lost within the plot summart.
3) Evaluate the thesis statement.  How adequately does it forecast the argument (let readers know what argument to expect in the body of the essay)? – I recommend touching up the thesis as the reader may be a little unsure of what the thesis is.
4) Does each topic sentence express a supporting argument (not a factual statement that a reader cannot argue against) related to the thesis? – So far the topic sentences make sense and can support an argument.
5) Where do any reasons (supporting points) the writer use seem too superficial (not important enough)?  – It is too early to comment as there isn’t enough paragraphs to know if things are not important.
6) Do any paragraphs begin with summary or quotation?  Remind your classmate that paragraphs should begin with topic sentences that state supporting arguments. – None of the paragraphs begin with summaries or quotations.
7) Evaluate the argument as a chain of reasons.  Does each point/body paragraph logically “link” to the next point/paragraph?  Suggest how the organization could be improved. – The paragraphs do link with one another and make sense.
8) Where does the support seem skimpy?  Where does the writer need to include more specific details from the story?  What else can the writer say about these reasons?  – Many supporting paragraphs are missing to further the argument being made.
9) Does the writer include sufficient quotations from the novel to make a convincing argument?     – More quotations are needed.
10) Does the writer explain/interpret any quotations in his or her own words?  Where does he or she need to provide more explanation or interpretation of quotations?  Do any concepts need to be defined? – More quotations will strengthen the argument, as well as explaining the connection between the quote and the argument.
11) Does the connection between a reason and its support (the specific example) seem vague or otherwise unclear?  If so, where?  How might the writer clarify this connection? – So far the author makes clear connections based on the argument given.
12) Are there contradictions or gaps (holes!) in the writer’s argument?  If so, where?  Will explaining a point resolve the contradiction?  Or, should the writer eliminate the contradicting point altogether? If there are gaps in the argument, what is missing from the argument?  Suggest what else the writer might discuss. – There are gaps within the essay as it is a rough draft and does seem to be missing quite a bit.
13)  Is the essay formatted to MLA guidelines?  If not, please identify missing or incorrect elements. – Works Cited is missing
14)  Is there a Works Cited?  Does the Works Cited contain a complete entry? – No Works Cited
Your essay starts with the good amount of information to the readers who have never read this play. It has a good quality of writing. I want to point out few things. First is your MLA  format. Even though it is the first draft, you should put some citation and the basic format of the MLA because it is required to earn a grade. I think you also might need some quotation to support your good points inside the paragraphs. I think you already know it, but it has a critical problem with the length of the paragraphs. I think it will look much better to meet up the minimum requirements on the rubric. With those two paragraphs i read inside your essay. I think you have a much better chance to write a great quality of essay if you come up with some more ideas.

Applied Sciences homework help

A reflection paper is NOT a research paper.  You should use your own ideas to reflect upon the materials from the learning unit.  Use the information in the learning unit to do the following:
In his essay, John Berger writes that the past is mystified because, for one reason, “history always constitutes the relation between a present and its past.”  Berger continues his discussion by examining the “convention of perspective” which allows the viewer of art to become its sole interpreter.  Of course, the camera has changed the way we view art; it allows us to see other “things” that are not immediately present in a museum.  In both Unit 4.1 and Unit 4.2, the idea of other “things” seem to be the subject of the readings and films.  For instance:
In Unit 4.1, artists are in conversation with each other.  Authors and songwriters provide words for famous paintings.  The words that are provided, however, often reference what is absent from the painting.  For instance, Oates provides a back story for the people in the painting, Waits creates a song that is inspired by the diner, and Ashbery reads into the portrait a landscape/setting, history, and motivation for the artist-as-subject.
In Unit 4.2, both films create a reality that is not possible in the “real world.”  In Six Characters, fictional characters live out a story that hasn’t been written.  In La Moustache, the main character’s world is turned upside down because his memory and his reality exist in conflict – in fact, the viewer may even question what is “true” in that film.
For this reflection paper, you will interpret a selection from 4.1 and 4.2 by doing what the poets do: Choose one painting from 4.1 and one film from 4.2. Then, work to create meaning for the selection by discussing something that is seemingly absent from it. For example: What’s missing from the painting that you think is important and what might Berger say about that?  Or, What’s missing from the reality of the film (or the perceived reality of the film) that is important to understanding it and what might Berger suggest about the way we’re “reading” the film?  Be careful when analyzing the painting; you can not just explain what the poet or the learning unit said about the painting. You need to create your own, unique interpretation.
The submission must be no fewer than two and no more than three pages of double-spaced text in 12pt. font. It must be submitted as a Word, RichText, or PDF file.

Management homework help

Answer each of the questions below. You can add as much detail as you wish. Be sure your answers are clearly understood by the reader. Remember, you choose the correct words, you choose the number (NOT amount!) of words to use. Your goal is to make your ideas clear and communicate your understanding of the questions to the reader. This is good practice using a couple of key ideas explored in the reading from today’s lecture.
Make sure your homework LOOKS GOOD! Creating a visually appealing DOCUMENT should be a concept you are familiar with from other writing classes. A clear, easy to follow document will always aid in communication and understanding.
1. There are many different forms of communication. What form is your favorite? In other words, which form are you most comfortable using and why? Give an example where this form of communication helped you succeed.
2. Consider our communication class your audience. Even though we have never met as a group, you can assume we are a diverse group. In what ways would our class be similar? In what ways would we be diverse? Be as specific as possible.
3. Consider your future career. Then identify a couple of different scenarios for that career in which you may be called on to speak to a large group. 
4. The book’s author claims, “Oral language tends to be less formal than written language.” Explain what this means. Then explain WHY our speaking is less formal than our writing.
5. Rewrite the sentences BELOW removing all the vague wordiness. Use concrete words and concise language instead.
a. It has come to my attention that a few of you have not done the stuff that was assigned last week.
b. As you already know, the class will have another on-line meeting next week sometime.
c. This thing going around has been tough on everyone.

Statistics homework help

There are strengths and weaknesses associated with the hypothesis testing procedure. For this discussion, begin by reviewing the concept of hypothesis testing in your textbook. Then, keeping this in mind, read the following quotes:

  • “Your relevance as a data custodian is your ability to analyze and interpret it. If you can’t, your replacement is due.”—Wisdom Kwashie Mensah
  • “Be careful of averages and how they’re applied. One way that they can fool you is if the average combines samples from disparate populations. This can lead to absurd observations such as: ‘On average, humans have one testicle.’”—Daniel J. Levitin, A Field Guide to Lies: Critical Thinking in the Information Age (2016)
  • “How results that are not indicative of anything can be produced by pure chance—given a small enough number of cases—is something you can test for yourself at small Just start tossing a penny. How often will it come up heads? Half the time of course. Everyone knows that. Well, let’s check that and see…. I have just tried ten tosses and got heads eight times, which proves that pennies come up heads eighty percent of the time.”—Darrell Huff, How to Lie With Statistics (1954)
  • “With enough mental gymnastics, just about any fact can become misshapen in favor to one’s confirmation bias.”—Criss Jami, Healology (2016)
  • “A small sample, we repeat, is rarely the big scientific problem. Interpretation is.”—Stephen Thomas Ziliak, The Cult of Statistical Significance: How the Standard Error Costs Us Jobs, Justice, and Lives (2008)
  • “We may at once admit that any inference from the particular to the general must be attended with some degree of uncertainty, but this is not the same as to admit that such inference cannot be absolutely rigorous, for the nature and degree of the uncertainty may itself be capable of rigorous expression.”—Sir Ronald Fisher
  • “It is worth looking closer and remembering something Marcos Alvito told me: Statistics are like a bikini. They show so much, but they hide the most important parts.”—Dave Zirin, Brazil’s Dance With the Devil: The World Cup, the Olympics, and the Struggle for Democracy (2014)

https://www.goodreads.com/quotes/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&q=statistics&commit=Search (Links to an external site.)
Based on the above quotes, along with this week’s assigned readings and Instructor Guidance, discuss why hypothesis testing is important in research.

Nursing homework help

When politics and medical science intersect, there can be much debate. Sometimes anecdotes or hearsay are misused as evidence to support a particular point. Despite these and other challenges, however, evidence-based approaches are increasingly used to inform health policy decision-making regarding causes of disease, intervention strategies, and issues impacting society. One example is the introduction of childhood vaccinations and the use of evidence-based arguments surrounding their safety.
In this Discussion, you will identify a recently proposed health policy and share your analysis of the evidence in support of this policy.
To Prepare:

  • Review the Congress website provided in the Resources and identify one recent (within the past 5 years) proposed health policy.
  • Review the health policy you identified and reflect on the background and development of this health policy.

Post a description of the health policy you selected and a brief background for the problem or issue being addressed. Explain whether you believe there is an evidence base to support the proposed policy and explain why. Be specific and provide examples.
