EAP Essay tomorrow (45 min)

Example prompt

"Advertisers frequently use the testimony of a celebrity to support a claim: a football star touts a deodorant soap, an actress starts every day with Brand A coffee, a tennis pro gets stamina from Brand X cereal, a talk-show host drives a certain kind of car. The audience is expected to transfer approval of the celebrity to approval of the product. This kind of marketing is misleading and insults the intelligence of the audience. Am I going to buy the newest SUV because an attractive talk-show host gets paid to pretend he drives one? I don’t think so. We should boycott this kind of advertising and legislate rules and guidelines for advertisers."

— Sue Jozui

  • Explain the argument that Jozui makes and discuss the ways in which you agree or disagree with her analysis and conclusion. Support your position by providing reasons and examples from your own experience, observations, or reading.

dancing with the star panthers
Dancing with the Star Panthers

Before I went to Dancing with the Star Panthers one Saturday night last year, I felt like I was going to be a martyr, suffering through horrible dancing for the sake of supporting my students. I soon had the omnipotent realization that the show was actually good. Some couples were so talented they were ineffable , while others improvised at certain points (but they were not so bad that I had to avert my eyes). I thought that 20 dances was a bit superfluous, as I got bored after about 15, but it was not so bad that I became dolorous or anything like that. At the end of the night, I utilized my suffrage to text in a vote in support of one of my students. This Dancing with the Star Panthers is one that will remain legendary for all posterity.

PS. I am always amazed at events like this that the dilapidated NPHS gym is transformed into a place of great sublimity.

PPS. I tried to sit far away from students so that I would not overhear any blithe comments.
