  1. I attached my unedited paper, but I'll paste it here in case you're worried to open it. I'm struggling to write a cogent paper under 30 minutes since I'm a slow writer. However, I'll critique your paper as well if you critique mine! Thank you
  2. Hey all! I wanted to know if anyone would be willing to go over my essay for the GRE. Thank you so much for your time! Woven baskets characterized by a particular distinctive pattern have previously been found only in the immediate vicinity of the prehistoric village of Palea and therefore were believed to have been made only by the Palean people. Recently, however, archaeologists discovered such a "Palean" basket in Lithos, an ancient village across the Brim River from Palea. The Brim River is very deep and broad, and so the ancient Paleans could have crossed it only by boat, and no Palean boats have been found. Thus it follows that the so-called Palean baskets were not uniquely Palean. Write a response in which you discuss what specific evidence is needed to evaluate the argument and explain how the evidence would weaken or strengthen the argument. The argument above assumes that because a Palean basket was found a great distance from Palea past a major river, Palean baskets are not unique to Palean culture. The argument fails in its assumptions and lack of explanation for it to be considered. The author in the beginning assumes that the Paleans did not make any boats during the time and thus couldn’t through the river. It could very well be in the next couple of years on the site that the author begins to find remnants of rafts made by the Paleans. The absence of evidence is not the evidence of absence. The way the author could strengthen the argument would be to find evidence that indicates that the Paleans did not make boats. Even if the river was an unconquerable barrier, it doesn’t mean that they were isolated as well. They could have interacted with other cultures, who then appropriated the ideas of the Palean people. Estimation of date of creation between the discovered basket and other baskets is crucial. The argument also uses vague language to describe the environment as well as the discovery. It is unclear the depth and breadth of the Brim River; only that’s “deep and broad.” It would also weaken this argument if it was discovered that the Palean people were strong swimmers and could overcome this barrier. It’s also unclear what the distinctive pattern gives artifacts a Palean distinction. If the argument went into further detail, it would most likely be strengthened. Nevertheless, we also run into the meaning of immediate vicinity. There is no explanation to the immediate vicinity, which could extend as far as 3 miles or be right under their feet. All in all, the author lacks a lot of detail in the argument to make the argument believable. Other evidence may need to be analyzed before it is believable.
  3. Hello, I am willing to grade other people's essays if someone could grade mine (or just simple feedback) using the ETS Grading Rubric. Please respond with feedback for my essay and your essay if interested. Thank you! Educational institutions have a responsibility to dissuade students from pursuing fields of study in which they are unlikely to succeed. Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the claim. In developing and supporting your position, be sure to address the most compelling reasons and/or examples that could be used to challenge your position. Educational institutions uphold the responsibility of manifesting student success. However, dissuading students from pursuing fields of study in which they are unlikely to succeed does not guarantee success in other fields. Certain fields of study require a long-term pursuit of work ethic and perseverance before success if manifested, particularly the arts. Celebrity actor Morgan Freeman did not have his big break until he was significantly older than the status quo youthful age of obtaining fame. There are limited predictive measurements that can determine a students’ success. While grades may provide a narrow glimpse of student strengths and weaknesses, successful high school drop-outs including Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, and Bill Gates, CEO of Microsoft, have disproven traditional education as a preemptive necessity for success. Students also may not experience failure, moments of which are commonly found in the narrative of successful people. Research on social-emotional learning has increasingly found soft skills including grit and perseverance increase the likelihood of high school graduation by 37%. Educational institutions may consider manifesting such skills rather than focusing on specific fields. However, dissuading students from pursuing fields of study could potentially increase the likelihood of identifying skills and talents worth tapping into given the evaluation and development of psychological, emotional, and intelligence testing, leading the way for a successful career. Schools, universities, and other learning centers are responsible for manifesting student success using methods that predict achievements of which remain unclear.

  6. All college and university students would benefit from spending at least one semester studying in a foreign country.(ISSUE TASK) College years are the most important and lifelong memorable years of many people. It has been seen as a gateway from being a teenager to being an adult for students. This means that these students will be added to society soon after the college. As to be beneficial for the society these people must add new social features for themselves. Most of the successful people in society-businessmen, doctors, lawyers, bankers- spent some time in different countries as a student where they gain helpful features for their profession and for their personality. Therefore, all universities should encourage their students to study abroad in order to improve themselves as a better person. Many students around the world are studying abroad in their college years. As the time passes universities started making more deals for exchange and erasmus programs all around the world. A student who experienced studying abroad can have advantages over someone who didn't. If two students from the same department are battling for an acceptance in a company the one who studied abroad usually has an advantage. While studying abroad students can easily improve their language. Learning a foreign language can socially improve a person as they interact people from different countries. In today's circumstances it has a huge importance in business too. Meanwhile, many companies are in collaboration with companies from different countries. Furthermore, as we are mentioning about improving themselves as a better person, a student studying abroad can gain more responsibilities. Most of these students are leaving their families for a couple of months for the first time in their lives. Spending their money economically, shopping for their dorm, adapting a new life and at the same time studying all needs a huge responsibility. For instance, I also spent couple months in Florida when I was in college and at the beginning it was very hard for me to adapt the new system for myself. I couldn't spent my money very easily due to being apart from my parents. I had to think twice before spending in order to use it economically. On the other hand, it doesn't mean that everyone who study abroad would improve themselves as a person. For example, think about a person who spent six months in France and travel and party all time without going to college. The ingenuity is to do both things at the same time. The idea of studying in a foreign country should be supported by the universities due to students have a great chance of adding beneficial features to their personalities. To sum up, studying in a different culture can improve language skills of a person and develop liability of an individual. As many students are encouraged to study abroad, the society will benefit from the individuals social and academical experiences.
