<p>I talked about the American melting pot, McCarthyism, and the division of religions.</p>
<p>Talked about Brave New World, Lord of the Flies and Scarlet Letter. I was feelin' the literature vibe today.</p>
<p>I mostly talked about the problem of immigration (one about the influx of Irish immigrants and the violence in NYC's Five Points neighborhood as a result of racial tensions/differences in cultural values/Irish alcoholic tendencies, the other about Hispanics and Latinos in modern day America and the immigration law in AZ).</p>
<p>what was your topic?
mine was something along the lines of
getting along well with different people of other interests . .
i used a fake book & experience cause i spent too long thinking @_@</p>
<p>The movie avatar and the Great Gatsby:D</p>
<p>Haha. yeah that was mine. I feel like I didn't get a great chance to develop my examples, but they were okay. But I think I got at least a 10.</p>
<p>The topic for the essay was a sucker punch for my preplanned examples so i had to think of ones impromptu.</p>
<p>Are we allowed to discuss these?
I said that common interests/personalities do make getting along easier, and used the friendship of FDR, Churchill, and Stalin, Lord of the Rings, and Angels and Demons for mine.</p>
Holden Caulfield (Catcher in the Rye)
Democratic/Republican Parties (incorporated the recent healthcare issue)</p>
<p>AP USH for the win:
I used the pre-Civil War Congress (e.g. when Charles Sumner--a Northern Congressman--was beaten by a Southern one).
I also used the relationship between blacks and whites in the pre-civil war South: especially slaves and their masters (e.g. how the slaves used to try and poison their masters and how the masters sometimes needlessly beat and whipped their slaves).
I was going to use John Brown as well, but I ran out of space.</p>
<p>The topic for the essay was a sucker punch for my preplanned examples so i had to think of ones impromptu. </p>
<p>Me too, but I kinda shifted mine around to fit the prompt. My last example was crap for this prompt, but I wrote a lot and I'd be very disappointed if I didn't get a 10+</p>
<p>I wrote a very profound conclusion, im hoping that will help?</p>
<p>wow, the relationship between blacks and whites in the pre-civil war South sounds like a good idea
wish i would've thought of historical examples, but nothing came up.</p>
<p>Am I the only one with topic that was like
Is so<strong>tude n_ce</strong>ary in a<strong>iev</strong>g a g__l? (don't want to be candid)</p>
<p>Much ado about Nothing, William Shakespeare
Things Fall apart, Chinua Achebe
Edie Sedgwick and Andy Warhol</p>
<p>lord of the flies (piggy and ralphs friendship)
hamlet and horatio from hamlet
south korean alliance with democratic world</p>
<p>I didn't use historical examples, instead I mostly recounted anecdotes from my personal experiences and observations.</p>
<p>^ LOL same. I used a lot of personal examples & observations. I just hope i scored decently :/</p>
<p>Do you think I'll get marked down on this? I couldn't fit any literary examples in :[</p>
<p>Steve Jobs and Wozniak, Into Thin Air, Of Mice and Men</p>
<p>Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn, Paul McCartney and John Lennon. So much for my preplanned examples, haha.</p>
