Don't tell me it's like that in college.... I have a honors writing class first semester, and it scares me.

Citations and outside references are HUGE lol. But more importantly they want you to focus on using the citations appropriately. You can't just cite a source and use it to argue a completely unrelated point. It's like me citing a source that shows how many Jews the Italians killed as opposed to the Nazis and using it to say that the Italians obviously weren't anti-semitic. Such a conclusion can't be drawn from those numbers alone. That kind of stuff heh heh.

Figures. Oh well, I'm good with using them appropriately, but I usually get slammed for the little stuff, and the quantity. I'll just have to care a little more when writing college papers.

Any idea what you usually write about in Writing classes?

Eh it depends on the professor.

I haven't taken any "Writing" classes. I don't have an English requirement because of my AP English credit. The only writing I've been doing is History, Sociology, Religion, and Philosophy. You of course get very specific in those classes. In a generalized English Writing class I would assume you pick a topic and expound on it as best you can. I think the structure is more important than the content in those classes as opposed to the writing I've been doing.

Yeah, I'm not sure what I'll get on the AP english test, but the honors program requires a honors writing class, so meh. If it helps me get into med school, I'm ok with it.

Meh?:
" For centuries, we as humans have quarreled over who is right, pitting one group’s opinions against another’s. The objective of all this, is truth; but what is truth? Some philosophers believe that it is subjective, while others believe it to be objective. Occasionally, these differing opinions are set aside, and the philosophical community can unite under the agreement that is known as absolute truth. "

Hmm.... so I think my paper may go over well. Apparently my English teacher is either Atheist or agnostic and is very open to other people's beliefs and opinions.

That's always a good thing. Teachers that want you to write what they want to "hear" are idiots. They became a teacher because they couldn't do anything else. The ones that actually enjoy teaching are open minded.

Oh, definitely. One of my best teachers always said that teachers are never supposed to preach, only present information and tools in which to process it. He's also the same teacher that sparked my interest in philosophy.

Sounds like a paper for an intro class? Or possible one on "modern philosophy"?

AP English. I actually changed it a bit, but I have it saved at home.

fair enough. Then he probably won't know enough/expect you to know enough to realize that thesis statement, in the context of the actual evolution of philosophical thinking is, to put it lightly, wrong.

but it is a rather eloquent statement.

Oh, I know it's wrong. As long as it sounds good, I get an A. Each point I make is correct, but how I connect them is wrong. She'll never know.

Tell me about it. I bet I could get an A+ if I turn my paper into a poem... everyone loves iambic pentameter.

Stupid English teacher. She's ALWAYS marking off for not enough citations, and too much of my own work.... I finally listen to her, and guess what? Too many citations, and not enough of my own work! Although, I think it has more to do with her not understanding it and needing everything to be spelled out for her. You should see how many times she wrote "you lost me" "explain" ... etc. Time to dumb it down.

Lol. Seeing "you lost me" from a teacher isn't a good sign. I get scared when I see that. It's either the teacher being a moron or the writer making no sense. Bring it to someone else to read to make sure which one it is lol.

Booya! I got an A on that paper. She said something along the lines of "I thought I would have been lost on he subject, but you did a very good job presenting and explaining everything."

Thanks to anyone who pitched in
