  • The Dog Ate My Disk Analysis

    In the essay “The Dog Ate My Disk, an Other Tales of Woe” Professor Carolyn Foster Segal explains that even after lengthy syllabus warnings and a humorous cartoon of a cat explaining to its teacher that a dog ate its homework, students still came up with multiple excuses for being tardy, absent or turning in assigned work late. She categorized the excuses into these five categories, the family, the best friend, the evils in dorm life, the evils in technology, and the totally bizarre. For family, Segal points out that “The death of the grandfather/grandmother is, of course, the grandmother of all excuses” (565). Students will use that excuse all the time because the teacher will probably show pity for them in their sorrow. Demonstrating the friend category is blaming a friend in need “My best friend was up all night and I had to (a) stay up with her in the dorm (b) drive her to the hospital (c) drive her to college because (1) her boyfriend broke up with her, (2) she was throwing up blood, or (3) her grandfather/grandmother died” (565). These were some of the reasons given for helping a comrade. There are also the problems of dorm life, where there is an evil roommate that always is always being obnoxious. “My roommate, who is a horrible person, likes to party, and I, who am a good person, cannot concentrate on my work when he or she is partying” (566). The author states that it would be easy to go study somewhere else like the library or somewhere that is quiet.…

  • Personal Narrative: Hearing Interpreters

    Another weakness I noticed in my work is I would apply my own knowledge and logic to my interpretations, which is a skill that can be great, but it can also backfire. For example, one docent signed something that I was certain was accidental, so I decided to correct her mistake in my interpretation. This was a strategy that I have seen other interpreters use, and know it to be effective, but I found it was the wrong choice for this moment. The docent caught my correction and made me reinterpret…
