?A's for Everyone!? by Alicia C. Shepard
When you use reference you have to use those reference from those three articles.
In the three texts we?ve read for this unit, Shepard, Uva, and Tworek each share their views on the issue of grade inflation
and its potential effects on schools. For this assignment, develop an argument that 1) expresses a position on the effects of grade inflation
on people and society and 2) supports your position with evidence from these texts (and from your own personal experience if you can).
* Do you think grade inflation
has had a positive or negative effect on the way people learn?
* Do you think that the evidence proving the existence of grade inflation
* What are the causes and consequences of grade inflation
Support your position with evidence from the texts. You will need to employ synthesizing techniques (not a summary of each author?s entire article) by organizing your argument around topics and common themes, and identifying connections among the texts. This means that not everything the author writes in his or her article will be relevant to your essay. Take a position on this issue, and support your choice in position with evidence from the texts. You will also need to counter-argue the viewpoints that are different than your position. That is, you will need to acknowledge what other people believe and then explain why your position is best.
The best way to accomplish this is to organize your paper by IDEAS/THEMES rather than sources.
