I understand why he may have not wanted to react to the virus in order to not cause panic which in fact was a smart move because at a time like this people panicking would have only made it worse. But his ignorance for how serious the virus was just not a respectable action. He tried to justify why he did what he did which is a valid reasoning, but he did it in a careless way. Leading people to think he doesn’t care about the public. Trump’s rallies are unacceptable because he preaches one thing yet does the other. He tried justifying why he didn’t give much attention to Covid-19, saying that it is a serious matter. Yet his rallies are not following guidelines. In addition, he uses a Winston Churchill quote to persuade the audience to believe what he is saying. He also used the quotes incorrectly and when Winston Churchill said those quotes, he was transparent with the audience of what was happening during that time. And in this case President Donald Trump wasn’t being transparent he was hiding the truth from the public.   Welcome to English 1A Winter 2021  Dear Students. Welcome to English 1A.  I prefer that you contact me through marcielleb@hotmail.com which I check every day.

Through their reading of selected prose works and articles, students learn to identify problems, examine possible solutions, recognize unstated assumptions, appraise evidence, evaluate arguments, draw inferences, and test conclusions. Through their writing, students learn to analyze, synthesize, organize information logically, and propose original ideas. Prerequisite: Students must have passed English 68 or tested into this class in order to take it. Course Requirements and Expectations: Students are required to be on time for class, turn in all essays on time, work in groups, and complete all reading assignments. There will be 3 essays of 1,000 words each, and a Final Research Essay of 2,000 words of text, not including Works Cited page with six cited and quoted sources. Homework, in-class work, and quizzes count as one grade. There will be a total of five grades listed in the grade book. This includes the Homework grade. Participation: In-class participation is vital to your success; therefore, students should complete all reading and writing assignments for the day that they are due. Grading Method: I will use the letter grading method wherein grades will reflect the following interpretation:    4=A   3=B   2=C   1=D   0=F.                                    STUDENTS MUST EARN A GRADE OF C OR HIIGHER IN ORDER TO PASS THIS COURSE. Grading Process Each essay gets points:  4 points =A   3 points =B    2 points =C   1 point =D    0 points=F.     Students are marked down for various errors. A few of them are:-1 for not following the assignment (Ex: not analyzing the text);  -1 for normal grammar errors; -2 for very egregious errors; -1 for each required thing missing, such as a quotation that should be in the essay or a missing source for the Bibliography; -1/2 if a student says any form of “you” or “I” that is not in a quotation; -1/4 if a book, film, or other title is not correctly italicized or placed in quotation marks. The EnglishWithMarcielle website “Titles” page shows how to create titles. Sample essays by Brandler’s actual students on the site among many helpful pages.   Sample entry in gradebook: Student Name            Essays Final Essay    Homework     Average the grades Essay numbers          1 2 3       4/4                  5 Mary Smith                 2 3 3       4/4                  4  =  20  divided by 6 = 3.3  = B in the class.   The six grades are each 1/6th of the final grade.   Homework Grades are given plusses (+) which add up to a final Homework grade. All homework must add up to a total of 48 points. The four Partner Sheets are 4 points each: Homework Grades: 64-49 = A         48-33 = B      32-17 = C        16-0 = D. STUDENTS MUST EARN A GRADE OF C OR HIIGHER IN ORDER TO PASS THIS COURSE.   We hope to have weekly Zooms for all of us scheduled ahead of time. Makeup work: For each class meeting that a graded essay is late, the grade will be lowered one grade. One day late cannot get higher than a B, and so on. Excused work is the exception.   Conferences: Professor Brandler will be meeting with students confidentially to discuss your work and any other issues you need to see me about. This can be through email. We will have class Zooms. Students with personal issues: Students in this category should see professor privately and confidentially. This can be through email. We will have class Zooms. Students with Learning or any other Disabilities: Reasonable alternative assignments will be developed for students with documented learning disabilities based on recommendations in the diagnostic evaluation. Valid documentation involves educational testing and a diagnosis from a licensed clinical psychologist or psychiatrist. The instructor and the DSPS office should be advised of the disability as soon as possible. Plagiarism: DO NOT PLAGIARIZE! Plagiarism is intentionally or knowingly representing the words, ideas, or work of another as your own. Students who commit plagiarism will be given an F and referred to the Dean of Academic Affairs. Drops: (You fill  this in)_____________ is the last day to drop in order to avoid receiving an Adds: This class must be added on or before the first day of class. Students must attend the first day of class to remain enrolled.            Disruptive students: Students who interrupt lectures, enter and exit the classroom during class for non-emergencies, talk excessively, text or use cell phones in any way, or otherwise interfere with the harmonious atmosphere of the class will be considered disruptive. These students will be warned once. The next disruption will result in the student’s being asked to leave, not to return until two class meetings later. A letter will be sent to the Student Life Office ((ECS76031), and will be filed in the student’s record. This includes student’s harassment of the professor over a grade. Modest dress is expected as well. Indecent exposure in the classroom is distracting and disturbing. VisitTitle IX, Sexual Harrassment information: info/10-Key-Areas-of-Title-IX/Sexual-Harassment.aspx”>http://www.titleix.info/10-Key-Areas-of-Title-IX/Sexual-Harassment.aspx (Links to an external site.) Student learning outcomes (SLOs)    Students will write an essay in which they synthesize information from a variety of sources. Students will apply MLA format for citing and documenting sources. Final Exam: The Final Exam is the final Research Essay which will count as two graded essays. Important Note: Always bring your books to class unless otherwise instructed. Always take good notes! Severe weather cancels class.                                                  Course Measurable Objectives: Analyze and evaluate topics for written assignments. Analyze and evaluate academic models in order to construct logical, correct, and complete outlines. Write coherent, correct essays. Write a coherent, correct library research paper. Develop critical/analytical skills for the evaluating, editing, and rewriting of essays. Use the rhetorical patterns in appropriate, pure, or combined form. Course Objectives:   http://www.mtsac.edu/instruction/business/courses/others/engl1a.html (Links to an external site.) See “Prompts.”below for all essays.   All homework due with first draft or essay      Final Exam Date and time: The last Thursday of semester on Canvas or by email.

You made it this far.   You can average your grades to see what you are getting so far. The grade you earned is what you created. Blaming the professor because YOU did not do A work, is NOT the professor’s fault. If you got an A, you created that too. Thanking the professor is also a moot point. Students who harass the professor (who try to negotiate their grades and repeatedly ask to have it change or redo work after the deadline, about a grade change, will be docked one grade point. If there is a technical error, the professor will be happy to fix it. The homework grades will be added up and included as one grade.                                                 Homework will be given weekly by email and on Canvas                                                                                                                                                                                                      6. English 1A Assignment Requirements For all essays, the format guidelines are listed below: 1,000-word essay, except for Final Essay, which is 2,000 words. MLA format. Works Cited page. Quotations cited properly. 1 quotation from the piece we are reading for Essays #1-3. If you say “you” or “I” in any form not quoted in any essay you will get ¼ point off for the first time you do each. Stay OBJECTIVE and FORMAL. No slang or curse words unless you are quoting. Get help in the Writing Center and have your tutor initial your draft for credit which may help a borderline final grade. You will write essays critiquing authors we have read in class from this section.           Take good notes in lectures.           Look for symbols, repeated themes, plot, setting, character, meaning or   moral, author’s intention, social, biographical, and historical background.           What do reviewers, family members, critics, and historians say?               Begin writing immediately, so you have a good chance to do well.                      Read each piece BEFORE the day we discuss it. Write your comments and questions. As you read, identify any symbols, foreshadowing in the story, the author’s purpose, audience, effectiveness, and style. Look up info on the author and the story, why s/he wrote the story and the social context in which it was written, etc. Take good notes in class. Ask questions and share your thoughts.                   Ask yourself how you feel about the characters and their actions or about             the piece and its meanings. How are the characters similar to the author and                                   his family, etc.? Do your own research on symbols. Google is helpful in this. Think about how WORDS are symbols in themselves, and do some research on the meanings of symbols. Wikipedia, YouTubeQuoteGarden, BrainyQuote are not considered primary sources, but can be your extra sources. Note: In all the essays, when you quote, mention the source and page number, so the professor can easily find it.  To quote=verb.

The truth behind great leaders   

(Who? Say it in your first words Mansfield was born in America in 1958. He is fond of writing about modern culture, history, and people’s issues. He remained a pastor for almost 22 years. (Start essay here with Stephen Mansfiels’s )His famous book “Never Give in: The Extraordinary Character of Winston Churchill”  ( Italics for books, magazines, tv shows, movies, and newspapers, not quotation marks),has fallen (fallen or appeared?)in the Time-best (What?) seller category list.  This book is written on American great statesman “Winston Churchill” (Why quotation marks for Churchill’s name?) who is known to be a conservative and has (He is dead now. Say “had remained”) Learn your verb tenses.-1 Too many language errors already. Did you do a Partner Sheet?)remained Prime Minister of America for two times (1940-1945 and then 1951-1955). 

Winston Churchill is considered to be the greatest leader of the 20th century. He was made a prime minister when the world was in a time of crisis which ultimately pouring more pressure on America than any other country as America had recently emerged as a superpower after playing a great role in both world wars. He had to deal with world war one, the Crisis of India, the Nazi Bombing of England, and much more. In fact, in world war the second, he was dealing with more crisis than any other politician was dealing with at that time in his political career. That is the reason why he is being called the greatest leader of the last century as all poles were in his favors (History Of Sir Winston Churchill – GOV.UK).(Where are the quotation marks? “History Of Sir Winston Churchill – GOV.UK“. ) 

The selected book is divided into three parts, which are, The legacy of leadership, The character of leadership, and the pillars of leadership. Each part has short chapters included in it which is the best thing as it helps readers to choose what part they want to read. These chapters are based on Churchill’s life lesson, his success, failures, political career, and turbulences. 

Mansfield in his book, which is to be reviewed in this essay, presents Churchill as one of the best warriors, survivors, leaders, and a successful politician of all time. The ferocity on his face whenever he is dealing with the critical political situation is shown through the picture in his book. Like, for example, there is a picture in the book of Churchill with the Mayor of London where London’s Mayor is easily be seen as tensed and anxious as they were bombarded by Nazi groups while Churchill has a calm look as if he knew he would deal with that easily. He could only be satisfied with the beast otherwise he would struggle to achieve what he would desire. In the book, the writer explains this quality of Churchill with his quote “My tastes are simple; I am easily satisfied with the Best” (Mansfield 542) 

Not only his political life but also Churchill’s personal life has been discussed by the writer. The writer talks about Churchill’s childhood, his relationship with his parents, and the struggling phase of his life. In his personal life, Churchill was bullied, felt alone in a crowd, managing money was a great struggle for him, his parents were distant, he was battling with depression and he had to face difficulties in his marital life as well. Before reading this book, one could imagine that this leader, who had so much in his pocket, never suffered in his personal life. As his parents were distant, Churchill knew how important was to have a complete family life. He tried to become a good father as his childhood was not like a typical childhood. He said, “Churchill was a devoted father and knew the importance of having a home and family life, “There is no doubt that it is around the family and the home that all the greatest virtues, the most dominating virtues of human society, are created, strengthened and maintained.” (Mansfield 721) 

This book reveals the truth behind being a great leader, I.e., the book describes how one can have leadership qualities or what are the qualities be needed to be a great leader. These qualities can even help the present leaders to improve their skills as the world is still in a crisis time from a health point of view. Covid-19 has been spread all over the world and it has become so difficult for almost every nation including America to fight with it. So, this book can help those who need inspiration to combat problems head-on while bouncing back from the humiliation with the help of smart strategies. 

This book also helps readers to improve their determination and practical qualities. It is written in the book that Churchill was voted out right after the end of world war two, but he remained determined to his goals and never gave up. There is an emphasis on the call of duty and how to be a better man. Winston Churchill himself quoted in the book as he once said, “Dread not when duty calls…stand erect and look the world in the face and do your duty without fear or favor.” (Mansfield 1042). Meaning thereby, he was an optimistic and opportunistic person who would believe in opportunities and hopes. 

Churchill was very much a self-aware person who knew himself more than any other person. There was no lack of knowledge about his personality rather he was focused and sure as he knew what he ought to obtain. He was an honest statesman who was brutally determined and courageous. “Being in many ways a coward-and particularly at school-there is no ambition I cherish so keenly as to gain a reputation of personal courage.” (Mansfield 1431) 

It would be unfair so that Winston Churchill was just a hard worker politician. Churchill was a fabulous writer too, In fact, he got a Nobel prize in Literature for his services to literature. He managed to publish his books which are more than 50 in the count. The writer also talks about the importance of hobbies in the eyes of Churchill; making him an all-rounder who used to appreciate almost all the positive things around him. 

In a nutshell, it is stated that the world is still in a time of crisis and really in dire need of leadership like Churchill did in his career. He had qualities like empathy, gratitude, honesty, influencing others, and determination. The world can be a better place to live if ruled with full sincerity and honesty. Churchill was no doubt an exceptional leader of his time which is well described in Mansfield’s book.
