class study: English 101

Hey everyone! I think in last Thursday's post, I mentioned that I was going to do a peek into my History class this week, but I'm at Starbucks and I forgot my History notebook, so I'll be doing English 101 instead. ENG 101 is my only class on Wednesday/Friday and it's at 9:20 a.m.
I'm really looking forward to tomorrow's post...it's been a good week, so there's lots of things to smile about and I have tons of pictures! But, for now, I hope enjoy this one!!

unfounded statements - learn to either not make the statement or ground it in evidence.
the triangle:
logos - "the word", reason
pathos - love the audience "sympathy"
ethos - credibility

if you improve as a writer, you'll stop making unfounded statements. it's all a part of... (finish later)
unfounded statements work against ethos and pathos. 
What is an unfounded statement?
-if you state something that people already know (preaching to the choir)
-not using sources
-you have to keep your audience in mind
-keep a formal tone (handle carefully)
-even as a Christian writer, you have to build a bridge to the non-Christian readers. Tell the readers why Scripture is relevant or another source etc. 

Write a rough outline of compare/contrast paper:
French Revolution/American Revolution
Intro
page 1: background leading up to revolution
page 2: how revolution played out (events)
page 3: the players
page 4: the end result
Conclusion


BACK UP WHAT YOU SAY.

I hope you guys enjoyed this short little inside view of my English class. ENG 101 is Introduction to Writing, I guess I should have mentioned that before hand, huh? Plus, my professor ended class half an hour early, so my notes are short. Anyways, I hope you like! Have an awesome Thursday :)
