Here they are again, although you have blown them off several times now so I don't really know why I am bothering (except maybe that your obvious uncomfortableness with being challenged is entertaining- I know a lot of teachers who have been in the saddle too long who have this disease of being defensive and dismissive of challenges that they are unprepared for.)
6) The five paragraph essay is a real life technique. See evidence above. And even if it is not, we teach plenty of methods that are not strictly used in the “real world”. When was the last time you used a Haiku in “real life?” Or a Concrete Poem? But these are great things to teach and learn.
Similarly, much of who I am remains unnoticed at first glance, not because of insignificance but because of initial perception. Most of the people who know me have no clue I’m valedictorian I’m the kid making paper airplanes at the end of class. The rest don’t realize I “do more than just school” but are pleasantly surprised to see me dancing around as Risky Business Tom Cruise for Halloween or just hanging out all over town on weekends. I like to think that ambidexterity helps me juggle these different parts of myself without letting anything go.

My son is interested in UVA and was wondering if he needs to take SAT subject tests to apply this school. The subject tests are optional for UVA. Also he took SAT math7 in May and received 795. Is 795 an ok score? Thank you so much!
How circular. It's not an argument if you don't make it an argument. "I am better than you at basketball because I'm taller, faster, and stronger" IS an argument, with proof.
I am horrified when high school English teachers tell me they unteach five paragraph essays, which kids often learn in middle school. I am disturbed because the students arrive to my college English course with no sense of structure or organization and I have to reteach all of these basic skills. Maybe this philosophy is one of the reasons why so many students arrive to college with deficient writing skills.
So far, I have realized that thriving at Twenty Questions, just like life, is all about tenacity, rationality and interpersonal skills. I have found that, as in Twenty Questions, always succeeding is impossible however, by persevering through difficulties and obstacles, favorable outcomes are often attainable. As I have become better at Twenty Questions, so too have I improved in many other aspects of my life. Nonetheless, I realize that I still have unbounded room to grow. And much like 75Q, I will continue to learn throughout my life and apply my knowledge to everything I do.
Draping myself in jewelry constructed out of straws and cup sleeves, I would unabashedly strut all around the café. Expressions of this unwavering self-confidence and sense of invincibility were not solely limited to my sense of fashion, but rather, it was ingrained in every thought and action that I had. I believed that Timothy’s should’ve been called Anna-Banana’s, that the blue armchair was my throne, and that the deliveryman’s dolly was my royal carriage. Ignorant to the laws of gravity, I once jumped off the dolly after reaching peak acceleration, wholeheartedly believing that I could fly. With a bruised ego and knees, I learned a valuable lesson: invincibility is a mere delusion.
I 8767 m shaping myself on my application as a writing student. I 8767 m Editor-in-Chief of two publications at my school and have won a few prestigious writing competitions. I got a 6585 on my SAT, but a 6/5/6 on my essays. I want to go to UPenn and am wondering if I should retake the SAT to bump my essay score. I don 8767 t know if my good writing extracurriculars will outweigh my poor essay score or if my poor essay score will delegitimize by good writing extracurriculars. What should I do?
If I were using five paragraphs to convince you, based on the argument above, you wouldn't need to read any farther. Instead, we should use the original argumentative form Aristotle promoted but that somehow got watered down into the ordinary structure we, unfortunately, were likely taught or may currently teach.
