Fellow citizens, pardon me, and allow me to ask, why am I called upon to speak here today? What have I or those I represent to do with your national independence? Are the great principles of political freedom and of natural justice, embodied in that Declaration of Independence, extended to us? And am I, therefore, called upon to bring our humble offering to the national altar, and to confess the benefits, and express devout gratitude for the blessings resulting from your independence to us? Would to God, both for your sakes and ours, that an affirmative answer could be truthfully returned to these questions. Then would my task be light, and my burden easy and delightful. For who is there so cold that a nation's sympathy could not warm him? Who so obdurate and dead to the claims of gratitude, that would not thankfully acknowledge such priceless benefits? Who so stolid and selfish that would not give his voice to swell the hallelujahs of a nation's jubilee, when the chains of servitude had been torn from his limbs? What effect is achieved by using a series of questions in this speech? A.It conveys a sense of wonderment about the tenets of the Declaration of Independence. B.It gets the audience to start thinking about whether the Declaration of Independence was beneficial for the slaves. C.It makes the audience begin to resent the policies and practices of the US government. D.It creates a parallel structure intended to urge the audience to protest against the Declaration of Independence

NO ONE IS ANSWERING MY QUESTIONS!?!? TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD QUESTIONS!!! 1. In these chapters (20-25) Scout gets a lot of information about "trash," "background," family name, and quality folks. Summarize in a short paragraph what she learns. 2. The gossip about Tom includes that "the veneer's mighty thin." This concept of thin surface and what is underneath has been brought up several times by Lee. Explain what point she is making, using the symbols or descriptions she has used elsewhere in the novel.

1. Scout learns generally quality folks by the stories of her community. She realizes that there are people who are like "trash" because of their prejudices like in the case of the Ewells. She learns that the background or raising of a person affects how one acts like Boo Radley. A reader can conclude that Scout considers quality people as neighbors who earn self-respect by respecting others.2. The "thin or thick" concept seen in Tom is highlighted several times in the novel. The scary stories that the children tell about Boo Radley are a good example. The children learn to change their minds about Boo Radley and believe he is more than what people perceive of him. Another symbol is what Scout calls mockingbirds. Mockingbirds are really innocent people in misjudged situations. They have a important role in society but are belittled.

Does antigone represent the female role in Greek society during this period in history why or why not ?

Antigone explores a contrast between the behavior expected of women and the reality of their role in society. Creon expects men to be the primary actors in society and women to take a secondary and subservient role. Opinionated Antigone challenges these notions as she takes center stage and presents formidable challenges to the men around her.

Occasionally, students in elementary school are allowed to advance to the next grade even though they have not successfully completed the lower grades. Advocates of social promotion think that keeping a child in a grade for longer than a year hurts his or her development and self esteem. Write an essay stating your opinion on this issue, making sure to support your opinion with convincing reasons/

 This is my SOL writing, The prompt I did is about moving elementary school students up a grade even though they did not complete the lower grade. This prompt is more so persuasive and personal both mixed into one because I am expressing my own opinion and I am trying to persuade the reader to agree with  me. SOL writing is practice and preparation for the real exam. When I submitted my essay, I got feed back on how I would score on a 1-4 scale if it were a real SOL. I also included notes from my teacher that could help me on the SOL. Then I included a reflection for myself to see in what areas I need to work on in order for my work to be perfect or better. This selection in particular helped me because it helped me see how the SOL will be and then the feedback helps me see where I am on the writing scale.

Read the passage. He is called by thy name, For he calls himself a Lamb: He is meek & he is mild, He became a little child: I a child & thou a lamb, We are called by his name. According to “The Lamb” by William Blake, how are the child and the lamb alike? A. Both are tender and soft. B. Both are young and naive. C. Both are meek and mild.

According to "The Lamb" by William Blake, the child and the lamb are alike because C. both are meek and mild.

In the poem, the child and the lamb are similar because they are both meek and mild. The word "meek" means, in this case, being gentle and quiet but also submissive, while the word "mild" is used to describe something or someone that is humble and gentle in feeling. Furthermore, in Blake's poem, the child and the lamb also symbolize Jesus Christ; therefore, they represent innocence too.

QUESTION POSTED AT 16/10/2019 - 11:17 PM

People on either side of the smartphones-for-teens debate can't agree on the evidence. Sure, there's proof of cyber bullying. There's also proof of educational benefits. Yet nothing is conclusive, so no valid judgment can be made for everyone on whether smartphones should be banned from teens. Anyone supporting such a restriction is naïve and uniformed. He or she is reacting from emotion instead of using his or her brain to study all the evidence and make a decision specific to his or her own teen. The bottom line is it's up to parents to be parents. Why spend billions of dollars on trying to stop cyber bullying or explore educational apps? It's probably just another human assumption that we can control the technology we've created. Trying is a waste of time and money. Which of the following is true about this argument excerpt? a)It is respectful in tone to the audience and supports its claim with specific, credible evidence. b)It contains specific, credible evidence but uses a disrespectful tone that should be edited. c) It fails to support its claim with specific, credible evidence and uses a disrespectful tone. d)It uses a respectful tone but needs specific, credible evidence to support the claim.

C. The text provides opinion with no evidence, and is disrespectful by saying people who support the ban of smartphones are not using their brain, and calling them "naive and uninformed".

What is subconscious social commentary? when a writer makes positive remarks about a topic when a writer makes negative remarks about a topic when a writer directly attributes a problem to social customs when a writer points to a problem caused by social customs without explicitly challenging those customs

Answer: when a writer points to a problem caused by social customs without explicitly challenging those customs.

A social commentary is the use of rhetorical devices in order to comment on the problems of society. This is usually a critique, and it is intended to promote change or to appeal to people's sense of justice. However, when this commentary is done subconsciously, the writer points towards the problem but does not explicitly challenge the customs.
