In my argument paper I decided that my topic would be on the curriculum of the public school system and focus on the no student left behind. I have found many articles and books that support my claim on how the forced curriculum in the public school system is destroying our schools. The main points that support my argument is how the public school system favors a learning method and not all students have that learning method. I found a very awesome cartoon that depicts how our public school system works. In this cartoon there is a few different animals, which depicts the students, and a group of other older animals telling them that best student will make it to the top of the tree. Obviously the monkey in the group of animals is going to do the best at climbing the tree. I like this cartoon because I feel that the humor and the personification used in the carton really depicts our public school system. I have also found some books where the author talks about the school system still working like the times Darwin went to school. He states that maybe itís not exactly like how it used to be and it has gotten better but there still needs to be work done. I think that most challenging part while writing my paper is trying to organize my thoughts and the points I would like to get across. I have a hard time with organization and hopefully I can get multiple people to proofread through my paper and make sure it will make sense to the reader and my grammar will be correct like with spelling and adding comas. I even made an appointment with the writing center for them to read over my paper and to make sure it makes sense and itís organized correctly in a way that gets my points across. Since I am an elementary education major I really wanted to write about a topic that is related to my major. I thought it would be interesting to do something related so that is why I chose to do this topic.
