  • EEG Compression And Pructural Priming

    children in the baseline task must be coded for a passive or active voice structure response. Responses are to be considered active if they follow the sentence structure of agent + transitive verb + patient. The agent is the ‘doer’ of the action and the patient is the object or being something gets done to. For example, “the man kicked the ball” follows the above mentioned sentence structure, and would therefore be considered active. Responses that were transitive in nature and omitted the patient were also coded as active. For example, “the man kicked” would be included in the analysis of active voice sentences. In terms of passive voice structures, a response is considered passive if it includes the transitive verb and patient in the subject position of the sentence. Therefore, a sentence following this structure would be: “the ball was kicked by the man.” As the active responses include those omitting the patient, passive responses also include those that omit the agent. In this way, a response such as “the ball was kicked” would also be coded as a passive voice structure response. The label of “other” is used to categorize children’s responses that did not use the active or passive voice structure. This category includes non-responses and sentence fragments (Shimpi & Gámez, 2007). The behavioral results of the baseline task in this study should align with previous studies completed by Shimpi & Gámez (2007). Their analysis indicated that passive descriptions are only…

  • Personal Reflection: My Experience As A Writer

    four year old kid I had started kindergarten and my writing career had took off fast! When my teacher first started to teach us how to write, we started with learning all of the letters and writing all the small simple words that young kids do when we are first taught to read and write, such as cat, dog, cow and pig. At this stage I had thought that reading and writing was the best thing in the world because they were so new and strange to me! It was just one of those things that I wanted to…

  • Source Analysis: The Threat To Free Speech At Universities

    Nardine Professor Woodworth English Composition 102 9/30/14 Source Analysis of The Threat To Free Speech at Universities One of the aspects that separate my generation from those in the past is that anyone with a computer can be a journalist and provide news. People still have access to news outlets such as MSNBC, Fox News, and CNN, but also a person can get news from their conspiracy theorist friend on Facebook. With a smorgasbord of choices, people need to be aware of three categories…

  • Paradox On The Use Of Technology Essay

    devices can be useful aids in the classroom, if—and only if—they are used correctly. They are a quick and efficient way to jot down information. More importantly, everything the professor explains is taken down word-for-word, which allows the student to draw themselves back to the class when they review the notes at a later time. Every crucial detail would, without a doubt, be included in the notes since everything is recorded. Moreover, topics that are being explained by the lecturer can be…

  • Analysis Of Nietzsche's 'Error'

    The meaning of the will to power is everything we think that becomes conscious and it becomes arranged into a sequence into our brains, then interpreted through and through to have an improved understanding. All life seeks to express its particular kind of power which means different types of people will see power in a view that is not seen by other types causing them to have a versatile understanding of what is happening around them. Nietzsche refers to the will to power as an iceberg where the…

    looked like the type of man who had seen the worst humanity had to offer. In front of him was a box of fruits, his only means of income. He offered an array of strawberries, pineapples, and mango, his fruit looked better than any fruit in a grocery store, yet people never seemed to buy from him. Possibly because they were hardened by seeing beggars in worse conditions, but most likely because of his outward appearance. I never bought fruit from the man, his face is burned into my memory.

  • Reflective Essay On The English Class

    semester. I don’t remember the instructor’s name, but right away, I knew his class wasn’t for me. His technique of teaching didn’t fit with my learning style, and his assignments were getting too repetitive. I wasn’t learning anything that would be helpful for my future classes. After, that semester ended, I decided to retake English 100 with you. The start of this semester, I was feeling very nervous because I knew the material would be harder than 307. English wasn’t my strong subject in…

  • Always About The Poet Analysis

    © 2015 The Poet Darkling™ Obviously, anyone who knows me would know that this poem is in no way about me, and in no way represents my feelings, my experience, or my perspective. I wrote it for a young transgender girl that I counsel, to give a voice to her feelings, not mine. Nevertheless, a stranger reading this poem would have no idea of the back-story behind it, and would assume that I was the subject because of the first person POV. However, I have learned that this is not a bad thing.…

  • College Vs High School

    Although homework is still given it is not as extreme as in high school. Also, college tends to go through topics a lot quicker. College is a rapid paced environment when it comes to learning and the professors do not have time to stop and baby their class like they are used to. When a new subject is being brought up the students need to quickly learn it and if they are having a problem with it will have to seek outside help because unlike high school the subject is not going to be retaught to…

Depending on my mood I may not want to listen or respond at all to avoid a confrontation as well. Abortion…
