Question:

Why is the "Expository Paragraph" the epicenter of early writing?

Inactive
Scott J.
Answer:

The expository paragraph is an excellent way to begin an informational essay. It has a clean, sophisticated layout that any 6-12 student can comprehend and practice. The expository paragraph can be used to analyze and discuss nearly any topic, though it doesn't offer much room for creativity. As students progress through their schooling career, they will find the paragraph has its limits, however high those limits might be.

Question:

In what ways has systemic racism impacted the educational opportunities for peoples of color in Detroit?

Answer:

Combing profit with education is the formula for inequity. Because of the near-abandoned public school system in Detroit, schools, teachers, and students have been forced to reinvent schooling. They must do so without the proper time, resources, and evaluations to support them. Students are being taught by unqualified teachers who are not being supported in any way. Moreover, the apathy of education as an entity from K-12 students shows how distant their relationship is. There are no books, there is no plan, and society looks on without batting an eye.

Question:

What is the symbolical purpose "Dr. T.J. Eckelburg" in "The Great Gatsby" by F. Scott Fitzgerald?

Answer:

The symbolical purpose of Dr. T.J. Eckelburg is to provide the reader with a sense of oversight. Though the reader knows the billboard to be an advertisement in a literal sense, we can pick up on cues from the narrator that create an other-worldly version of the image. The billboard sits near the pile of ashes where it is clear the lines of class have been made. Distanced from East Egg and Gatsby's mansion, the baren ash-land is almost overlooked by these judgmental yet endearing eyes.
