Study Proposal: The Effect of Texting on Students' Test Scores and GPA - The effect of texting on 18-22 year old college students’ test scores, and GPA. Throughout college towns, at any given day or time, a person could stop on a corner and glance around to very likely see numerous students walking while texting on their cell phones. It may appear obvious that this action will cause those students to be distracted and possibly walk in to something or someone, yet there is a bigger problem to address. The larger issue I am interested in is the affect this heightened usage of text messaging may be having on the learning abilities of college students....   [tags: Research Proposal] 859 words

A Modest Proposal - In Jonathan Swift’s satire, “A Modest Proposal”, Swift writes about the starving people of Ireland in the early 1700’s. He makes a wild and absurd proposal to help remedy the problems of overpopulation and poverty. Swift wants to make a political statement by using the “children” as satire to grasp the attention of the audience - the English people, the Irish politicians and the rich – and make them aware of the political, moral, and social problems. In “A Modest Proposal”, Swift’s arguments are presented effectively by using pathos (emotional appeal), ethos (ethics and values), and logos (logic reasoning and facts)....   [tags: Literary Review ]

A Modest Proposal, by Jonathan Swift - Irony is a beautiful technique exercised to convey a message or call a certain group of people to action. This rhetorical skill is artfully used by Jonathan Swift in his pamphlet “A Modest Proposal.” The main argument for this bitingly ironic essay is to capture the attention of a disconnected and indifferent audience. Swift makes his point by stringing together a dreadfully twisted set of morally untenable positions in order to cast blame and aspersions on his intended audience.
