(“Becoming a Real Person” & “Does College Serve Any Purpose?”)

  1. Developing and focusing a thesis
  2. Introduction to incorporating and combining sources (“synthesis”)
  3. Instruction in quote integration and MLA style


For this second essay, we will be exploring, in a more personal way, some ideas surrounding the concept of education, generally, and higher education, specifically. Why are we at college? What is it all for? What is the role of higher education in a society? What is it to us, individually? What does it mean to be educated? We will be exploring some of these questions together, and in our readings. You will reflect on your own ideas, as they relate to these readings and discussions. Once we have some ideas, we will begin casual, online research to locate at least one additional, related article for use in the essay.

Your audience for this essay is the student body at any college. We are to pretend that this essay will be submitted for publication in our school newspaper. Your purpose is to get students to reflect themselves on the purposes of being in college, of getting an education. You may even wish to nudge them toward a specific reason you feel is correct. To engage them, your discussion must be interesting and informative, but importantly, fun. How can you capture and retain their attention? How can you effectively communicate your ideas? How might you persuade them that this is important to consider? (Understanding and establishing the “Rhetorical Situation” is essential for this essay: Who is writing to whom, about what, and why?)
