2. The photograph has three subjects, Leshia Evans as the primary one and then 2 cops. The three subjects are located in the center of the photograph Evans in the right side and the cops in the left side. It is possible to see the predominant green in the right background. On the hand, in the left side the color black is predominant. It is also visible that Evans is the only one who’s skin is black, and all of the cops are apparently are white. The image has a clear division down the middle where we can see the protest vs oppression, which she is about to be pulled out of her side. The movement reviews the peacefulness in one side and the brute force from the other one. It is picture not painting, and the woman is visible in active situation, she is not in a weak position.

2.     Write a draft of your opening paragraph based on Chpter 3.2 Opening Paragraphs from English Composition: Connect, Collaborate, Communicate

The death of Alton Sterling sent shockwaves through Baton Rouge, Louisana. Sterling was shot and killed in an act of police brutality outside of a store where he regularly sold DVDs. He was known affectionately as “CD Man” in his community. Sterling’s shooting was one of many racially charged incidents that gave rise to protests across the nation in 2016. Among these protests, one image rose to the top and became synonymous with the Black Lives Matter movement. In Baton Rouge, protestor Ieshia Evans was photographed standing alone in the middle of a road while being arrested by two officers advancing from a line of police in riot gear. She stands completely still, one arm tight around her waist while the other is slightly extended to the officer running toward her. This is not a photo of a scared woman. Evans is not frozen with fear, she is rooted in her courage. Her arms at her waist and her shoulders pushed back show a woman with patience and confidence. Although her body language is stiff, Iesha Evans is fearless due to her unshakeable strength in the face of arrest.

Part 1

Question 1: The purpose of the essay is to educate us.

Question 2:  People who might be interested in the topic of the essay are those seeking information on how to properly format an essay.

Question 3: The ones seeking for the information would be most impacted by the essay.

Question 4: The reader would get a light explanation in the introductory paragraph on what the essay would be about.

Question 5: The reader needs to understand the thesis statement in order to understand the essay points.

Part 2

Question 1: “Until you’re ready to look foolish, you’ll never have the possibility of being great.” ~Cher. In life you must take risks, even if it means falling flat on your face. Risks are something we all come into contact with from time to time. There are risks involved in gaining confidence, climbing the career ladder and creating growth within ourselves. Often, they can be quite frightening, but are often worth the venture to reach the other side.

Question 1

Let me first say that this blog assignment is very ambiguous as the answers to these questions should be specific to what you are writing about and who the audience will be.  And since these are general questions based on planning your writing we don’t actually know these two things.  Are we answering the questions in general, or specifically to our first writing assignment.

  1.  The purpose of most essays is to educate, announce and persuade.  While entertainment is usually not necessary it could enhance the other three, and in some cases it may be one of the more important purposes.
  2. Our classmates and professor may be interested as well as anyone interested in the topic and also have access to the essay.  The reading says that the writing should be catered to at least our classmates.
  3. The main people who would be impacted by an essay are those that read it and who also didn’t know the information contained in it.  Specifically a reader who is mostly ignorant to the information, and the conclusions set forth by that information, may be the most impacted because the essay may have changed their mind about a specific toipic.
  4. The reader may not know anything about a topic or they may know a lot.  One must know the audience to know how much information to put in, or to know how much explanation is necessary.
  5. What the reader needs to know to understand the point of the essay depends on the topic of the essay.  But then again it also depends on who the audience is.  If you write an essay on Quantum Mechanics for your Peers or for a general audience will have a huge impact on how you write it.  The wording and amount of explanation in the essay would vary immensely.
  6. From the reading, writers can garner a reader’s interest by doing the following:
    • Beginning by quoting an expert on the respective topic or an inspirational individual.
    • Beginning by offering some statistical evidence that is both informative and intriguing.
    • Opening with a striking mental image.
    • Appealing to the reader’s emotions.
    • Raising a question or series of questions.
    • Presenting an explanation or rationalization for the essay.
    • Including a personal anecdote.
    • Stating in the middle of a story with the conclusion of the story existing as the first sentence in the conclusion paragraph.
  7. The level of language is once again catered to who the audience will be.  If it will only be read by peers than more complicated jargon will be used.  The potential vocabulary level will also be dictated by the audience.
  8. The tone of the topic will once again be dictated by the audience and also the subject matter.  One will not try to write a comical essay for a serious and sad topic.

Question 2

In light of the recent protests sparked by the unjustified and tragic murder of George Floyd at the hands of the Minnesota Police, many more of us have become aware of the inequalities African Americans face in regard to how they are treated by the police here in the United States. These inequalities were always known by some, including Emory Douglas, former Minister of Culture for the Black Panthers, who was also an artist, designer and illustrator.  In 2015 Mr. Douglas remixed, or re-imaged, a poster for the Black Lives movement that he originally created and published in the Black Panthers periodical back in 1976.  The images when placed side by side, show that although things may appear to be better for African Americans on the surface, they are still fighting for equal justice under the law that still eludes them some 40 years later.

2. Write a draft of your opening paragraph based on Chapter 3.2 Opening Paragraphs from the English Composition: Connect, Collaborate, Communicate

“Good writing is supposed to evoke sensation in the reader-not the fact that it is raining, but the feeling of being rained upon.” once said, E.L. Doctorow. This sentence explains why a good writer should be a good reader in the first place. It may not always be easy for the author to convey the events and feelings that occurred in their dream world to the paper. And if the writer is not a reader, it becomes even harder to look at their own writing through the eyes of the reader, which may cause worse problems than you think.
