The free college idea is a nationwide debate for many years. The article ” Should College Be Free? The pros and cons”, by Kelly Dilworth summarize some of the pros and cons of this debate. From the beginning, this article emphasized that both political parties in the United States are positive about applying for free community college but still this plan is not approved. Then the article continues with some pros and cons of free college debate. The pros side of this debate argues that a more educated workforce benefits the economy and free college programs courage more students to attend. Also, they think that free college increases graduation rates and financial security. On the other side, the cons side argues that the free college idea would be too expensive and the free college programs do not help the students who need them most. Actually, there are several programs that support students of different categories in many States in the USA. Some of these programs are federal financial aid programs, grants, scholarships, or no-loan colleges. But still, these programs do not solve the problem of many students that struggle on affording college costs. Personally, I support the idea of totally free college for categories that are in need. And not only by paying their tuition, but also by covering other expenses related to the college. Getting higher education is the only way of improving the life standard. Sometimes it is impossible for people coming from the low or middle class to change their social-economical status if they do not have a good education. I think that government has to give the chance to all their citizens to get a good education and improve their lives.  It will be beneficial for the country because well-educated people could contribute better to the market and the economy. Better educated people mean better jobs for them and high incomes, as a result, they can spend more money and pay more taxes. Overall I would say that the benefits of free education are stronger than the cost of it. It is time to make it a reality as soon as possible.

Assignment 2: Open Letter

Purpose: Since you began listening to the conversations about issues related to health, you have

been analyzing a variety of texts in a variety of different contexts. Now you can engage deeper

with a topic of your choice, within our class theme of health, and expand the conversation. In the

process of close reading, critical reading, and expanding the conversation,

• you will be choosing and reading three articles within Healthy State that speak about a
shared topic,

• you will synthesize (or bring together) information from the chosen articles to discover
critical, emerging issues,

• and you will write an argument to persuade an audience to do or think something new
about the issue.

A first step before writing a persuasive argument is to listen to the conversations surrounding the

issue to which you would like to contribute. You’ll do this by closely and critically reading at

least three articles from our reader, Healthy State, finding emerging issues from these texts. You

will eventually need to incorporate three (or more) articles from Healthy State to use as support

for the argument you make. Please note that this assignment does not call for outside

research. After you select an issue, you’ll work to identify a suitable audience for your

persuasive argument, in which you will use the selected articles as evidence to support your

reasoning.

Genre: You will write an open letter, which is specifically addressed to one person but is

intended for a larger audience, organization, or group to read. Open letters are often published in

a newspaper or magazine.

Audience: The audience for this essay should be connected to the issue you choose (they should

be able to do something about the problem and solution you are presenting). To best achieve

your purpose (persuasion) with your audience, you’ll need to:

• Carefully consider what audience will need to hear your argument, target them, and
work to consider that audience’s needs, values, and knowledge on the issue. Your

tone and “voice” should be appropriate for your audience.

• Consider the expectations your audience has of you as an author. The audience
expects that the argument is supported with reasons and evidence from the articles

you read. They want to see that you are familiar with the conversation on the issue

and want to know how your argument uniquely expands and contributes to that

conversation.

• Show that you have conducted effective inquiry into the issue by summarizing,
paraphrasing, directly quoting, and explaining the source material appropriately (the

three sources from which the issue emerged).

Requirements:

• Summary: provide a relevant summary of the idea (the problem or issue presented by one

or more of your articles and either a solution you’ve invented or one you’ve come across

in your reading) for your audience, paying attention to the parts of the text which will be

of most interest to your audience.

• Response: You will respond by arguing to your audience that the idea you are asking

them to consider will be useful, emphasizing why the idea is important (your reasons),

what is at stake, and providing evidence from the original text (and, potentially, from

other texts we’ve read so far this semester) to back up your argument. Your informed

response shows that you’ve listened to the broader conversation surrounding these issues

and your analysis and response is based on an accurate knowledge and understanding of

the situation or subject in question. Your audience is depending on you to provide more

than first reaction opinions; they desire informed opinions.

• Critical Thinking Approach: Your essay should be informed by all the texts we have read

thus far. You should also investigate the idea’s originating context as well as the context

of the audience you are trying to persuade and their subsequent values.

Paper Length: 900-1200 words (3-4 pages)

Workshop Dates: Wed., March 2nd; Mon., March 7th Due Date: Wed., March 9th

Worth: 20% of your final course grade

**NOTE: At the end of your paper, include the following honor pledge: “”I have not given,

received, or used any unauthorized assistance.”

Assignment 2 Grading Rubric

Excellent Satisfactory Unsatisfactory

Making an Argument: The

letter clearly and effectively

argues for the idea you are

spreading. The letter

emphasizes reasons why the

idea is important, evidence to

support the reasons, and

discusses what is at stake in the

conversation. The letter goes

beyond first reaction opinions

about the idea and instead

presents informed opinions

based on careful consideration

of the conversation surrounding

the idea.

Although the letter writer has

thought about how the idea will

be useful to the audience, the

letter could more clearly and

effectively argue about the

idea’s usefulness. The letter

mentions why the idea is

important and what is at stake,

though the reasons and/or

evidence could use more

development. The letter goes

beyond first reaction opinions,

though the letter writer may

need to consider the

conversation surrounding the

idea more carefully.

It is unclear from the letter why

and how the idea will be useful

to the audience and/or why it is

important and what is at stake.

The letter may rely too heavily

on first reaction opinions, rather

than informed opinions, and

may cite few reasons and/or

little or no evidence to support

the position. The letter writer

may need to consider the entire

conversation surrounding the

idea more carefully to craft an

informed response more

effectively.

Considering Context and

Appealing to an Audience: It

is obvious from the letter that

the student has carefully

considered the idea’s

originating context and has

thoughtfully crafted a letter

aimed at convincing the

audience of the idea’s

worthiness. The letter writer

has considered the values and

assumptions of the audience

and their context and speaks

clearly to those needs.

Though the letter has put some

consideration into the

audience’s context, the letter

could more clearly explain how

the idea is applicable. The letter

also pays some attention to the

needs of the audience, but

consideration of the values and

assumptions of the audience

could be more thorough.

The letter seems to show little

consideration of the audience’s

context, and/or it is unclear

from the letter that the student

understands what context is and

how it plays a role in the

rhetorical situation. The letter

may have little or no

consideration of the values and

assumptions of the audience.

Representing the Text: The

letter accurately and objectively

summarizes the idea in the

original text, paying attention

to the parts of the text that will

be of most interest to the

audience.

The letter cites the author, title,

date, and publication of the

text, using author tags and/or

proper attribution for all

borrowed material and framing

summary, paraphrases, and

quotations with careful and

effective explanation.

Overall, the letter accurately

and objectively represents the

idea in the text, though there

may be some minor

inaccuracies, and/or the reader

may need more information to

fully understand the text’s idea.

The letter writer may need to

pay more attention to the key

parts of the text that will be of

most interest to the audience.

The letter makes clear

references to the text, but it

could use more variation in

author tags and/or it needs to

make better choices of

summarizing, paraphrasing, and

quoting. References may be

effective, but framing is thin or

missing.

The letter shows that the

student may have an

incomplete understanding of

the text because it contains

incomplete and/or inaccurate

information, causing the

audience to be unsure of the

main ideas and supporting

points in the text. Essays that

contain only opinions about the

texts are also unsatisfactory.

Because the essay does not

have enough references to the

text, it is hard to tell when the

student is referring to it and

when the student is expressing

his/her own thoughts.

Ineffective use of summarizing,

paraphrasing, and quoting

raises concerns about

plagiarism and/or

understanding.

Conventions & Style: The

language, tone, and voice of the

letter are those of a careful and

critical reader, and the letter is

edited for clear communication

that is free of distracting errors.

While the letter could be more

carefully edited for style, it is

generally clear and readable.

Because of poor editing and/or

style choices, the letter is

confusing or unclear for

readers.

Babalola 2

Abraham Lincoln And Fredrick Douglass

Adejoke Babalola

Houston Community College

Professor Samuel Hogsette

HIST 1301

March 7, 2022

Abraham Lincoln was an American statesman and a lawyer born in 1809, February 12th. Abraham was born in a low-income family and was self-educated, becoming a lawyer. Lincoln first became a leader in 1854 with the Republican Party, where he reached the national audience against Stephen Douglas in the 1858 debate. Lincoln then ran for the presidency in 1860 and served the United States as the 16th president until he was assassinated in 1865. Abraham Lincoln was believed to be determined to overthrow the constitution and then destroy his beloved south. This belief over Lincoln by a supporter of slavery led to Lincoln being assassinated.

Lincoln is regarded as one of America’s greatest heroes for his role as an emancipator of the enslaved people and savior of America’s political unions. The ability to negotiate, command a room and give a compelling speech made Abraham Lincoln be regarded as one of the greatest presidents of America. Lincoln succeeded in modernizing the economy of the United States, abolishing slavery, reinforcing the federal government, preserving the national union, and leading America through the civil war. Despite Lincoln’s high-quality leadership, he died in 1865, April 15th, after being shot to the head by John Wilkes Booth. (Koehn. et al. 2018)

Frederick Douglas was an African American abolitionist, newspaper publisher, orator, and author. Frederick taught himself reading and writing skills and is famous for his autobiography. While enslaved, Frederick taught the other enslaved people and helped them become literate. In 1838, Anna Murray helped Frederick escape from slavery. After 1838, Frederick became an anti-slavery lecturer and was forced to travel to Britain in fear of re-enslavement. In 1872, Douglas was nominated for vice president but turned the offer down since he was nominated without his consent. Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglas met in 1863.

The abolitionism movement to end slavery gained prominence during the civil war in the United States. Frederick Douglas led this abolitionist movement. Two more publications on autobiographies were made by Douglas and were all considered classic. Anti-slavery newspapers that were too influential were also established under Frederick in 1847, December 3rd. The right for all Africans and Americans to vote was implemented under Douglas in 1870.

Lincoln and Frederick met to protest the discrimination faced by the black soldiers who were serving in the union. In the last autobiography by Frederick Douglas, Douglas stated that Abraham Lincoln regarded him as a friend. Lincoln invited Douglas into the White House three times. Douglas attended the second inauguration of Lincoln in the White House. (Levine. et al. 2018)

Definition of a Proposal

             A proposal is an offer made by an individual or group to provide a service or product or carry out research. It is a request made to carry out a certain activity that benefits the individual or other people. Most projects, small or big, require drafting a proposal to request assistance or permission.

Classifications of Proposals

            Proposals can be classified into two categories, i.e., internal and external proposals. Internal proposals are submitted within one’s organization as a request to carry out an activity that will benefit the organization. The proposal may be a request to carry out research, purchase a product, or change a policy. External proposals are submissions made to other organizations. Often, external proposals are made to outsource services that the organization does not have. Companies rarely can produce all products or offer all services required. The company may require organizations with the resources and expertise to compete by submitting proposals showing they deserve the contract. External proposals can either be unsolicited or solicited. Solicited proposals are often responses to requests from customers. The organization or individual proposing waits for an invitation by the company before placing it. Unsolicited proposals are placed by organizations or individuals before the prospective customer makes a request. The organization placing the proposal determines that a customer will require a particular service and places a request to provide it.

Deliverables of Proposals

            The actual deliverable will be the submitted to the organization that owned the research process. Such requests are scrutinized, and when approved, the research organization begins the research. The researcher makes periodic progress reports and provides a recommendation at the end. Goods and services proposals are made as a request to supply a tangible product or service.

Components of a Proposal Structure

            A proposal contains a summary covering the major elements in a few words. The summary is followed by an introduction that helps the reader understand its organization, scope, and context. The proposal contains a plan of work that details the activities the individual or organization intends to do. It includes a section on qualifications and experience that demonstrated your ability to do the project. The proposal specifies through a budget the amount of money the project will cost. Lastly, the proposal has an appendix containing essential items such as charts, maps, images, testimonials, etc., that are not included in other parts.

Parker streets, London UK, E1 7BS (888)-123-4567

Date: October 15, 2021,

To: Matilda Storm, CEO of Gems Galore Jewelry

From: John Wick, Senior Web Officer

Subject: Progress for New Company Website

Purpose

This is a progress on the best way to develop the Gems Galore Jewelry website and include updates with current trends and customer needs.

Summary

Gems Galore Jewelry Company has been using an old website developed in 2017 and is not compatible with the ever-changing trends in the modern world. The website lacks pages which showcases some of the products on sale. These products include rings, bracelets, necklaces and other jewelry. The project aims to develop a new online website that can consider the new emerging issues with the new technologies. This includes making the website an e-commerce website incorporating SSL allowing customers to create profiles, track their products and make payments all in a secure website. The new project is geared towards enhancing the company’s efficiency in its manufacturing by creating brand awareness, increasing the sales made online, and spreading more awareness to customers on its goods and services. The website will incorporate SEO, social media, brand exposure and make the website mobile friendly. It is almost four weeks since the project kicked off, and it’s expected to last for seven or nine weeks. Most of the activities such as SEO research, adding product pictures and prices, have been executed though some are yet to be implemented.

Introduction

The proposed website would be mobile-friendly to the users. In addition, the website is usable to anyone and everyone, even those with limited vision and fashionable. The contents of the project outline history details of the company, including the previous website in use and its pros and cons. Details such as:

· The company’s profile.

· A Call to Action button- GET A QUOTE- for customized jewelry

· Blog spots to inform clients on the new product developments and innovations.

· The company’s emails, cellphone numbers, locations opening and closing hours

· Advanced payment methods such as PayPal, Visa and mobile payments.

· Links to the company’s social media pages

Progress

Since the project started, it’s been almost four weeks, and only three out of the seven tasks have been completed. However, the three completed tasks are critical in any website development project.

Task 1. Creating and optimizing the search engine to incorporate the company’s details and history.

Web search is the customer first process in the customer buying process. The website could benefit from SEO as it helps the customers find the company and products faster. Since the development of the website in 2017, there have been no updates and further developments.

The proposal on SEO will include Keyword Research will help to generate traffic from search. This will help focus on keywords for which a certain degree of search traffic already exists. The second part includes Keyword Optimization know where and how to employ keywords in your content for optimal searchability. This process is followed by Content Organization which helps customers find related content quickly. Lastly, content promotion which will increase the websites visibility by sharing it on social media and establishing links from blogs.

Task 2. Creating a portal for customer service, including a blog to communicate the products and services offered.

A client portal is a digital gateway for information sharing, file exchange, and community hosting. The company will help clients log in and get information and services when businesses make them available.

Lastly is the improvements made to the visual design of the company’s profile. Some of the challenges include not being able to clearly define the web’s objective but solved through having a stakeholder meeting to define the aim clearly. Insecurity of the web development process is a challenge that is anticipated though it might be collected by having strong security passwords at each phase.

Task 3. Back end development and training

The tasks remaining include coding both front end and back for the software, training the technical team on the software, and carrying out tests for quality assurance to be completed in the remaining three to five weeks.
