OUTLINE Introduction
A. Over the last two years the NCAA is handling over 1.5 Billion dollars in revenue yet the athletes, who contribute such a large part of all that money, don’t get one single part of it.
B. These kids invest so much time into their athletics, risking the outcome of their education and they don’t receive any part of the money that they are responsible for.
C. Today I’d like to speak to you about why these athletes deserve some type of pay, first off on how it’s becoming more of a job nowadays, how they contribute, and why people believe they don’t. Body Paragraph #1
Claim: Playing big time sports in college is starting to become more of a job than an extracurricular activity.
A. Robert and Amy McCormick think it’s definitively a job for football and basketball players on athletic scholarships at big time Division-1 schools, they argue that they are treated as “employees” under federal labor laws and entitled to form unions and negotiate hours and working conditions.
B. “There are many more demands put on these young men than any employee of the university,” says Robert McCormick. “These young men are laboring under very strict and arduous conditions, so they really are laborers in terms of physical demands on them while they’re also trying to go to attend school at the same time.
C. The player might have to postpone taking courses until the summer. Athletes don’t have free choice of what major they take if the classes conflict with practice schedules. “There are similarities to it being a job, as I look back there is a time allotment that is expected of you,” says Hicks a 1991 graduate.
Transitional Sentence: Therefor it should be looked at as more of a job nowadays rather than an extracurricular activity.

Body Paragraph #2
Claim: The scholarship size should be increased or a small salary should be added on to cover the…...

...Thomas Dang Professor Decker English 1B 21 November 2012 Outline 1. Introduction: One of the biggest concerns in America in the past and in today’s time is what the required and appropriate drinking age should be in the United States. There has been statistics showing that the drinking has been lowered before and in that time period there were more accidents occurring more than when the drinking age were set at twenty-one. 1. Background: The twenty first amendment in 1933, it gave individual states to legalize, regulate, or prohibit alcohol which was known as repeal of prohibition. The repeal of prohibition act was what changed the drinking age to twenty-one to eighteen, not all fifty states lowered it but about over thirty states did. The act Mothers Against Drunk Driving was what set the drinking age back to twenty-one. 2. Argument: We should not lower the drinking age to eighteen because of the fact that the earlier the teenager get to drink the earlier they are risking their development of their brain and the health of their body. Not only that it affects their health but it also affects their academic in school and their safety while driving under the influence. a) Reason 1: Keep the drinking age at twenty-one because it keeps the highways and streets safer. b) Reason 2: A better chance in better academic progression, due to the fact that the brain still develops until the age of twenty-five. c) Young adults are more mature at the......

The English- Only Debate by Alejandro Portes Outline

...#60 The English- Only Debate by Alejandro Portes • Immigration has brought a growth of foreign language → English language may lose predominance→ cultural unity may be undermined • High immigration rates give rise to nativist movements New Threats to English • 1990 census found that 92% of the US spoke only English • Survey shows 94% spoke English fluently by the age of 14 and the figure rose to 98% 3 years later • People preferred English over their native tongue Losing Mother Tongues • Few retain their parental tongues • If one defines fluency as the ability to speak, understand, read, and write well , no 2nd generation group was fluent in the mother tongue by the age of 17 • English-Spanish bilingualism was the most common, but 65% lost their parental language • 90% of children lacked fluency Is Complete Language Assimilation Desirable? • These trends raise the question of whether complete language assimilation (acquisition of fluent English and abandonment of native languages) is desirable • Madorah Smith declared bilingualism to be a hardship devoid of any advantage • Study did not distinguish between fluent bilinguals and limited bilinguals whose command of one language or the other was poor Are Bilingual Students Better? • Bilinguals outperformed their monolingual counterparts in almost all cognitive tests • Bilingualism at an early age influenced subsequent cognitive development • Bilinguals’ enhanced cognitive performance is explained by their......

...exercise, fresh air, and some pocket money if you have free time during each day. Pet yard waste cleanup For many people in suburban areas, cleaning up pet yard waste is a real hassle – it’s disgusting, for one. Instead of cleaning it up themselves, they might hire someone to do it regularly, two to three times a week. There are several such services in our area, actually. Produce selling Like to grow vegetables? Focus in on one vegetable and sell the excess to grocery stores and at farmers’ markets. My father does this with tomatoes and earns some solid extra money during the summer months. You can do really well, though, if you can grow things inside during the winter – February fresh tomatoes can sell quite well. Proofreading Have strong English skills and exceptional grammar? You may have opportunities to work as a proofreader from home. Advertising for this can be difficult – seek out those who might actually be able to use your services and advertise directly to them. Public speaking If you’re the type of person who can get the attention of a room easily, public speaking might be for you. Take advantage of every public speaking opportunity you can and you’ll be surprised at the opportunities that make themselves available for you. Scrapbook making Many people dream of having beautiful scrapbooks. They collect all the materials they want in the scrapbooks but never follow through on the actual creation. You can step in here – take their ideas and materials and......

...1. Give an outline of the different views on the state of foreign language learning in Britain presented in the text Overall, there can be a lot of different views on the importance of learning a foreign language while growing up in an English speaking country. While some find it a very necessary and important thing to learn, to fit into today’s globalised world, others think that speaking English is enough. For example, text 1, 2 and 3 are all articles discussing whether learning of foreign language is important or not, but they doesn’t agree with each other’s conclusions. On the one hand text 1 claims that refusing to learn foreign languages is like refusing to evolve in phase with the rest of the world. He finds it a very important skill and argues that the reluctance to learn foreign languages in Britain will at last cause the end of any political and economic wellbeing in the future. On the other hand article 2 claims that even though it agrees with the fact that speaking a foreign language fluently is an advantage for anyone, it doesn’t influence British economy in such an extremely way as described in text 1. In addition, text 3 totally differs from the other articles in its way of seeing the discussion. While the other articles take stands on whether learning foreign languages in Britain is important or not, text 3 claims that the discussion is far more nuanced than that. She argues that in Britain there is not a very big incentive to learn EU languages, because...

An Outline of English Literature

...ENGLISH LITERATURE ITS HISTORY AND ITS SIGNIFICANCE FOR THE LIFE OF THE ENGLISH-SPEAKING WORLD A TEXT-BOOK FOR SCHOOLS BY WILLIAM J. LONG, PH.D. (Heidelberg) TO MY FRIEND C H T IN GRATITUDE FOR HIS CONTINUED HELP IN THE PREPARATION OF THIS BOOK CANTERBURY PILGRIMS From Royal MS., 18 D.ii, in the British Museum PREFACE This book, which presents the whole splendid history of English literature from Anglo-Saxon times to the close of the Victorian Era, has three specific aims. The first is to create or to encourage in every student the desire to read the best books, and to know literature itself rather than what has been written about literature. The second is to interpret literature both personally and historically, that is, to show how a great book generally reflects not only the author's life and thought but also the spirit of the age and the ideals of the nation's history. The third aim is to show, by a study of each successive period, how our literature has steadily developed from its first simple songs and stories to its present complexity in prose and poetry. To carry out these aims we have introduced the following features: (1) A brief, accurate summary of historical events and social conditions in each period, and a consideration of the ideals which stirred the whole nation, as in the days of Elizabeth, before they found expression in literature. (2) A study of the various literary epochs in turn, showing what each gained......

...Anyone who reads Old and Middle English literary texts will be familiar with the mid-brown volumes of the EETS, with the symbol of Alfred's jewel embossed on the front cover. Most of the works attributed to King Alfred or to Aelfric, along with some of those by bishop Wulfstan and much anonymous prose and verse from the pre-Conquest period, are to be found within the Society's three series; all of the surviving medieval drama, most of the Middle English romances, much religious and secular prose and verse including the English works of John Gower, Thomas Hoccleve and most of Caxton's prints all find their place in the publications. Without EETS editions, study of medieval English texts would hardly be possible. As its name states, EETS was begun as a 'club', and it retains certain features of that even now. It has no physical location, or even office, no paid staff or editors, but books in the Original Series are published in the first place to satisfy subscriptions paid by individuals or institutions. This means that there is need for a regular sequence of new editions, normally one or two per year; achieving that sequence can pose problems for the Editorial Secretary, who may have too few or too many texts ready for publication at any one time. Details on a separate sheet explain how individual (but not institutional) members can choose to take certain back volumes in place of the newly published volumes against their subscriptions. On the same sheet are given details......

The Outline

...The Outline Assignment Explanation: Before attempting to write a first draft, students should always create as detailed an outline as possible. This means you will have to think through your entire paper before you begin to write it. This is imperative given the required length of the Research Paper. Six to ten pages is not something you should try to intuitively write. If you try to “wing it” you will take much longer than you need to write the paper, and you will find it hard to keep on track. Your paper will feel disorganized and you will inevitably include irrelevant information. Here is the easiest pattern I can suggest for your papers: 1. You will need an introduction that introduces your topic, provides relevant background on your topic, and then transitions to your thesis statement. Your thesis should be a two-fold thesis statement. 2. In APA style, it is common to divide a research paper into different sections. These sections can be the arguments you make to prove your thesis. In English 101, you wrote five paragraph essays: an Introduction, three Body Paragraphs, and a Conclusion. The pattern was to have a thesis for which you made three arguments. Each argument was one of the three paragraphs. For English 102, simply take that pattern and expand it. What does that mean? If you have three main arguments to prove your thesis, each argument should be a section of the paper. The pattern is as follows: I. Introduction II. Section I ......

...an outline naturally organizes the information in a highly structured, logical manner, forming a skeleton of the textbook chapter or lecture subject that serves as an excellent study guide when preparing for tests. This method of note taking is extremely useful in most instances; however, in classes, such as math or chemistry, where a lot of formulas, graphs, or structures must be drawn, the outline method should be replaced with a better note-taking system. How to Use Write points in an organized manner based on space indentation. Place major points farthest to the left. Indent each more specific point farther to the right (level of importance is indicated by distance away from left margin). Advantages The outlining method emphasizes content as well as relationships between the material. Also, it reduces the time needed for editing and allows for easy reviewing. Disadvantages This method requires more thought for accurate, understandable organization and, therefore, cannot be used during lectures that move too quickly. Example How to study from an outline:    I. Read through one line at a time          A. Explain the information and connect the idea to others presented    II. Check the accuracy of the information    III. Add clue words          A. Jot down keywords or details that you didn’t originally include in the outline          B. Use these keywords to jog your memory when studying from the outline    IV. Recite information from the outline......

...A 1. Give an outline of the different views on the state of foreign language learning in Britain presented in the texts The three texts represent different attitudes toward the state of foreign language learning in Britain. In the first text, “why do we continue to isolate ourselves by only speaking English?” Will Hutton clarity how he think it´s important for the individual person and the English people to learn more than the language, which are their native language. He talk about how it´s important to speak a foreign language, especially to save the Britain´s future economic. By comparing England and America where he see same “xenophobia” culture, he indicate why American can have their attitude to foreign language while they can´t, like it´s saying in the text. In addition will Hutton see this as a lost interest in other countries from the youth, he discuss how that fact establish this unwillingness. The second text by David Hughes “Do we really need foreign language skills to flourish?” David Hughes thinks that the fluency in foreign language is a benefit for anyone, but he doesn´t see the importance in that, when the rest of the world is learning English. When David Hughes went to the Far East, he heard English spoken everywhere, and as he wrote it in the text. The third text by Susan Purcell “Saying Britons ´don’t do´ languages is a fallacy” explain why the discussion about the English language skills is far more nuances.

...introduction, or to end your essay in your conclusion. Consider how your notes from other sources will inform your essay. 2. 3 Create a five paragraph outline. Many students use the five paragraph essay form to structure their paper. However, some teachers frown upon this structure and argue that you can use as many paragraphs as you need in your essay, as long as there is a clear introductory paragraph and a clear concluding paragraph. The five paragraph essay outline is:[4] o Introduction: Your beginning paragraph should contain an engaging first sentence and your thesis statement. Some writers find it easier to write create a temporary introduction and revise it once they are finished with the essay. This will ensure the introduction is cohesive with the rest of the essay. o Body paragraph 1-3: Each paragraph should begin with a topic sentence. You should also discuss one major point of your thesis, with at least one supporting example in each paragraph. o Conclusion: This paragraph should summarize your main argument and restate your thesis. You may also want to include last thoughts around the essay question and answer any questions or concerns you presented earlier in the paper. 3. 4 Use a less formal structure to outline the paper. There are other ways to structure an English paper beyond the five paragraph essay, especially if you are writing a paper or essay at the college level.
