I was pretty confused and overwhelmed going into the second inquiry log. It seemed like a lot being thrown at me all at once. I usually have no time going off topic, but for some reason I had a hard time with number three in the prompt. Once I became focused on “this is what I need to find” and “this is what I need to get out of whatever it is that I find”, I had a hard time relating it to unrelated topics.
Throughout the process, and with this log in particular, I have been having trouble finding new information and information about my specific questions. Along the way, I changed one of my questions a bit because I decided that it was a little to specific.
- from the first section: extend ideas of others
- by reading, you start to form your own ideas and opinions
- you find things that you are able to contradict (yeah, but…)
- second section: writers frame
- writer’s frame = what they want you to see
- their perspective
- identify frame
- what do they emphasize?
- example: From FORBES article “there is another problem…”
- economics and business
- It’s about sitting down, thinking about your life, then writing
- we’ve been taught not to use personal experiences
- drawing on personal experiences is more than using “I”
- “I think” is not necessary..obviously if you said it, you think it
- “I have experiences___” is good
- personal experience makes writing believable
- It’s important to recognize what bothers you, personally bc it says a lot about you
- There is more than two opinions about subjects
- everyone has an opinion
- we start going back and forth and it gets confusing
“Should Everyone Go To College” article (Forbes)
- “universal goal”?
- I wouldn’t say that college is a good investment for everybody
- people can get jobs and make decent money straight out of high school
- people can go to college and can’t get a job after they graduate
