Introduction to Analytical Writing
September 23, 2011
Writing, speaking, and listening are three ways people use to express their feelings, emotions, beliefs, and opinions. All three work together to make the process possible. In order to listen, somebody needs to speak or write, and in order to be heard somebody needs to listen. Listening can help you learn as well as show respect to the speaker. When a person speaks or writes what they truly believe the listener can learn while listening with no judgment. It is important to express your beliefs if you ever want them to be listened too and taught.
Every person has his or her own opinions. Sometimes people don’t want to speak about topics that cause controversy such as, racism, government problems, illegal immigration, religion, war, homosexuality and many other controversial issues. It takes a strong and determined person to speak the truth and share their opinions about something they believe in. Some opinions on those topics can be seen as wrong. People can easily have the complete opposite opinion on something someone else says. Writing and speaking about controversial topics or even simple things can take courage but it can also be a kind of therapy for the person. People often use writing as a way to express ideas that they are afraid to speak about. When someone shares their opinions, they want people to hear and understand what they believe. They want people to learn and even agree with the things they believe. A person writes or speaks so people can listen and learn and in the best outcome, agree.
Listening to somebody can be a powerful thing. In “Tell me more” by Brenda Ueland, she explains how important listening can be to a person in their life. When you listen to somebody you show the person respect and interest in what they have to say. Brenda Ueland believes, “When we are listened to, it creates us, makes us unfold and expand.” When someone knows they are going to be listened to or when someone is going to read what they have written the speaker is more likely to let loose and share their true feelings. Ueland says, “…When someone has listened to you, you go home rested and lighthearted.” Being listened to can help you feel better about yourself because it can make you feel important. When you listen to somebody you learn more about the person and become closer to them. Listening can help you understand a person. When a speaker or writer has something to say that can be important or controversial it is important for them to be heard, even if the listeners are just simply themselves. Brenda Ueland believes, “Listen to…those who love you and those who don’t, to those who bore you, to your enemies. It will work a small miracle. And perhaps a great one.” In order to learn you must listen and in order to be learned from you must teach.
Expressing your true feelings and emotions can be extremely difficult for some people. Gloria Anzaldua in “Borderlands” explains it well when she says, “Writing produces anxiety. Looking inside myself and my experience, looking at my conflicts, engenders anxiety in me.” Anzaldua looks at writing as something that can be risky and something she can be judged for. Writing, to her, is also a way to show who she really is and share her feelings that aren’t always accepted. People write to let out their emotions. You can share your sadness, anger, aggression, happiness, love, fear, and hurt through writing. Writing can make a person feel better. Gloria Anzaldua explains, “That’s what writing is for me, an endless cycle of making it worse, making it better, but always making meaning out of the experience, whatever it may be.” When a person writes, a voice is established. The listeners can be other people or at often times, themselves. A good piece of writing comes from the heart. It comes from past experiences and memories. A good piece of writing is easy to realize because it is something you can...
Introduction to AnalyticalWriting
October 14, 2011
People are happiest when they can freely be themselves and be who they want to be. When people pretend to be somebody they aren’t or withhold who they truly are they are never fully happy. People experience this in life all the time and in all different situations. This happen in school to fit into the “cool” crowd, a new job, around your parents and family, and this has been a pattern in history. In the chapter, “On the Bottom” by Primo Levi, and in the poem, “I walk in the History Of My People” by Chrystos, the people don’t just have to pretend to be different people but are forced to become different people. Dehumanization can cause horrible pain and change in people’s lives as well as an ever-lasting stain in history.
Dehumanization is to deprive a person of their qualities and personality. It is the act of degrading a person. In history dehumanization has struck through out the years. It has occurred when Native Americans were taken away from their land, in slavery, in the Holocaust, when African Americans were discriminated against, when woman were seen as a housewife instead of a worker, when homosexual people hide their sexuality, and many other times. Dehumanization is a constant event through out history that will never see an end. A single person, a group, a religion, the government, and others can dehumanize a person. When...
...Writing an Introduction
The whole introduction should consist of five characteristic sentences, each defining a specific part of introductory description of the soon-to-be written essay. These are about:
1. a general topic
2. narrowing the topic down
3. restating the question
4. author’s opinion
5. a controlling sentence
A universal language
Think critically about the following statement.
A universal language should replace all languages.
Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of a universal language.
People’s mutual understanding has always been a problem when highly differing native languages are taken into account, like German and Spanish, for example. Thus, several different solutions were proposed, one of which was the inclusion of a universal language. The application of a universal language could well have certain positive and negative effects on the world populace. I, honestly, believe the invention of a new, universal language would be absolutely unnecessary; one of the reasons is that people would, mostly, stop learning other foreign languages, which would make human thinking and communicational capacities and capabilities grow even poorer than today.
Studying conditions students are in

...Claim:Researchers should not limit their investigations to only those areas in which they expect to discover something that has an immediate,practical application.
Reason:It is impossible to predict the outcome of a line of research with any certainty.
It is a very well known fact that the most pivotal discoveries of Science have been an act of serendipity.There is probably no definite way of knowing the outcome of any particular body of research,
despite knowing the odds against or in favor of any event.Researchers,given all their cerebrality and the potential to tranform the face of mankind,should therefore,not limit themselves to working towards projects that
appear to have imminent practical applications and dedicate themselves to making innovative discoveries,as odd or eccentric they might seem.
The randomness governing the denoument of a research study could be equated with that involving the outcome on flipping a coin.It could result in a tails or heads with equal probability.That is,to be or not to be,is in the hands of the forces of the universe figuratively.Some of the most pioneering works
of Science appeared to have no potential benefit to mankind in their inchoate stages.For instance,Alexander Fleming,credited with the discovery of Penicillin,serendipitiously happened to notice a fungal growth inhibiting the
growth of bacterial colonies in dirty petri dishes that he had forgotten to...
...Introduction to the Analytical Balance
The objectives of the experiment include illustration of the use of analytical balance, studying the precision of weighing made with it and evaluating the common error encountered in weighing. Weight of the vial, the cap, vial with cap and the vial that was induced with the factors affecting the sensitivity of the balance (e.g. moisture) were determined. As seen, there were significant differences on the weights though there were some errors observed. Expected results were not seen because of certain influences that somehow affected the precision and accuracy in weighing. All in all, the objectives of the study were met.
The analytical balance is a fundamental measuring device for all types of quantitative work in analytical chemistry. It is designed for great precision in quantitative chemical analysis. It yields readability to four decimal places to the right of the decimal point (up to .0001 g). It is extremely sensitive and requires a draft-free location on a solid, flat surface that is free from vibrations. Analytical balance is used for samples up to about 320 g.
The importance of the study relies on the proper handling and weighing of the balance to minimize errors and attain the maximum precision and accuracy in weighing a certain sample through the analytical balance....

For informational essays, types of leads include:
● Anecdote (brief story)
● Interesting fact
● Vivid Description
● Addressing the reader directly

The last sentence of your introduction should be

1-2 sentence statement including the topic and
the main idea or writer’s opinion about the topic.
Last weekend I was lucky enough to attend the Fresno State v.
Boise State football game. The matchup between these two
nationally-ranked teams was incredibly exciting, and the game
remained closely contested until the last minute, when Fresno
finally pulled off the win by only one point. During those last tense
minutes, my attention was drawn to the three young boys sitting on
the benches behind me. Their father had brought them to see the
game, but they had spent almost the entire time with their eyes
glued to hand-held electronic gaming devices. Rather than join in
the excitement shared between thousands of Fresno State fans,
each was in his own little world, unaware of his surroundings.
