Help! Research arguments needed - OasisxPoisonxProdigy - 01-25-2012 01:01 PM

So I'm writing an essay about how bad school is and I need some arguments to rebut. Perferably
as another source (like books and articles.)


RE: Help! Research arguments needed - Stadium - 01-25-2012 01:07 PM

There's a lot of articles on the main site. Also look up John Holt.

Thanks

I looked that up vie google but I don't think that's what I was looking for, I was looking for common arguments on why schools are important and schnuff. Like what your parents or teachers may tell you. Thanks I have five books by Gatto for my research. They are really good too. I was addicted to reading them.

Thanks for the help though. I guess you can say that, I'm on the anti-school side getting arguments from the other side breaking them down until they are useless in debate. Smile like medicine to a disease.

If I remember I'll post my finished essay, if it sucks don't be surprised I really suck with English, Japanese and German are way easier for me to learn and use than English; however both of those are bad because I don't spend enough time learning and communicating with those languages. If you guys do like the essay I do (It will probably 8 pages+) you can use it if your teacher allows.

I'm once again asking for the power of School Survival net to help me in my research paper in my AP English Language class, this time I'm asking if anyone remembers reading an article about how you forget things when you stop going to school and such and if anyone remembers where that article is from. I remember it was an article on learning math. I'm searching the web for it as I type.
And thanks so much for helping me so much. I will definitely post my paper when I'm done, and if anyone wants to propose any changes or additions just tell me. I like reliable sources that make sense. Smile Can't thank you guys enough for putting up with my newbish newness and crap.

I remember reading about how to not make quadruple posts.


RE: Help! Research arguments needed - OasisxPoisonxProdigy - 01-26-2012 12:59 AM

I'm pretty that's with same posting if not, I'm sorry.


RE: Help! Research arguments needed - McGee! - 01-26-2012 06:42 AM

And here's some good inspiration


RE: Help! Research arguments needed - OasisxPoisonxProdigy - 01-26-2012 05:42 PM

Almost done. The first upload is going to be a docx file. It's the first version. If someone has a good edit and I see it when I get up in the mourning I'll probably do it.
EDIT:
here's the link to media fire to download it, will update if possible with more versions.

Thanks guys for providing me with the resources that helped me with my essay. It's about 10% of my grade. I'm sorry Prince Rilian and Soulriser for not looking at it before I submitted my essay. It was too late.


RE: Help! Research arguments needed - OasisxPoisonxProdigy - 02-12-2012 01:35 PM

So I got my essay back, and it was a bad score. 111/200 ;( and now I have to revise it. My teacher wrote through out the essay that there was no thesis, no connections and no focus. I really need help. I've become so frustrated with it. I don't want to revise it.


RE: Help! Research arguments needed - Miller0700 - 02-12-2012 01:47 PM

Let me see it and I can revise it for you.

Yeah I will give it to you. It'll take awhile since the computer that has it crashed, It's a decade old comp. Right now it's disk is getting repaired, that can take up to a half an hour, and it will take me awhile for me to scan them.
Edit #1
wait nvm. I might just use the scanner on this comp but this comp doesn't have the software,

edit #2
I can't use this comp for scanning because windows doesn't have the driver I need so, it'll take awhile, good news is that my other comp is halfway done.


RE: Help! Research arguments needed - Miller0700 - 02-12-2012 02:06 PM

Take your time.


RE: Help! Research arguments needed - OasisxPoisonxProdigy - 02-12-2012 02:46 PM

That thing you wanted to see...
here you go


RE: Help! Research arguments needed - Miller0700 - 02-12-2012 03:05 PM

Might take a while.


RE: Help! Research arguments needed - OasisxPoisonxProdigy - 02-12-2012 03:15 PM

Don't worry the revision isn't due until tuesday, and thanks so much. over 9000 internets for you. I promised myself that this semester that I won't procrastinate and I will try to get ahead in my classes. My mom said she would let me get my driver's permit if I get b's or better, not a gpa b or better average.


RE: Help! Research arguments needed - Miller0700 - 02-12-2012 03:27 PM

Already started on it. I think I should be finished by tomorrow (Not guaranteed tho).
