SUBMIT ARGUMENTATIVE ESSAY

Assalamualaikum. Hello guys. Today I am absent but I have MC to give Miss Zu. I give Zubaidah to submit my argumentative essay. So, they are my full essay. I do not have many idea to write.



Women are becoming bolder as well as more aggressive and men are more sensitive. Agree or disagree with this statement. Support your opinion with reasons and examples.

Women are becoming bolder as well as more aggressive and men are more sensitive. In this era of globalization, women are more successful than men and becoming more independent. Although the number of women more than men that are strong claim that men are becoming bolder than women because men is leader in family.
Firstly, women more aggressive than men because they want to protect themselves. Nowadays, many criminal cases in Malaysia such as murder, burglary, shoplifting and other serious crime. No woman wants to find herself in a dangerous situation, but it happens. According to Rape, Abuse and Incent National Network (RAINN), someone in the US is sexually assaulted every two minutes, while the National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV) reports that three women die every day as a result of domestic violence. For precaution, women must to learn martial arts like taekwondo. Nevertheless, men are rescuer when women have a big problem.
Besides that, most university students are women. We can take example from UiTM students which are 75% students are women and 25% students are men. Women very hard working when study and need to struggle to get good job after he graduated. On the other hand, women must know that men are leader for women include leader of the class or organization. In addition, we can take example from Prime Minister in Malaysia which are all prime minister is men.
Some people may disagree with this idea, women more aggressive than men because women bring their problems to workplace. Women more emotional stress than men because of sensitivity to hormone, said Fiona.M. (2010). Many women change their appearances to become border than men with have reached higher positions in workplace that are same level with men in a workplace. Nonetheless, men hide their problems to workplace. They are very intelligent to solve their personal problems than women.
In conclusion, women still need men to encourage them to achieve successful in their life and men is a role model for women to protect them from any dangerous.

Argumentative Essay


Assalamualaikum. Today Miss Zu teaches us about Argumentative essay. She said argumentative essay must have words “should be”. For example you have been asked to write an article entitled “Why Sports Should Be made Compulsory in School” for your College bulletin. Now, I can understand how to differentiate types of essay. Miss Zu gives topic about “Organ Donation Should Be Encouraged among Malaysian”. She wants our classes do the thesis statement. Then Miss Zu chooses Sarah and Bariah thesis statement for give example to our class. Sarah agree in the thesis statement while Bariah disagree in the thesis statement.

So, thesis statements agree:
Although, organ donation brings negative perception towards Malaysian society, here are strong evidence that organ donation should be encouraged among Malaysian to give a second life to the patient.

Thesis statements disagree:
Despite the claim that organ donation is seen as noble action and gives benefit towards people who needed, organ donation should not be encouraged among Malaysian because it can affect not only the donors but as well as the donors’ family.  

Before end the class, Miss Zu give homework to our class which are write argumentative essay. The topics that she gives are “Women are becoming bolder as well as more aggressive and men are more sensitive. Agree or disagree with this statement. Support your opinion with reasons and examples”. We must submit an essay at Monday, 18 March 2013.

They are my essay that Nadia Zamri and Nadia Salehin commenting:


AUTHORIZATION OF BRINGING HANDPHONE AMONG SECONDARY SCHOOL STUDENTS: IS IT BENEFICIAL OR A NUISANCE?

     Deputy Education Minister, Datuk Wee Ka Siong said, “Students would be allowed to bring hand phone to school starting 2013”. Mobile phones are believed to be useful in teaching and learning at schools. With mobile phones, students can access their lessons almost anywhere and anytime, said Quinn, 2000 and Mellow, 2005. Mobile phones could be considered as a motivational tool for learning. She has conducted many learning activities with mobile phones and these activities have shown positive outcomes, said Kolb, 2008. Although the government authorized students to bring hand phone to school, there are strong claims that bring hand phone to school will bring more negative result than positive ones.

     Bringing hand phones to school can give more benefits to secondary school students. Firstly, when the secondary school students bring hand phones to school, it can make lesson easier. According to Kolb (2008), hand phones which are popular among young students, might be measured as a motivational factor for learning. Besides that, through hand phones, young students are able to comprehend their lessons almost anywhere and at anytime. However, this statement is inconclusive. Those who disagree, saying that bringing hand phone to school might invite secondary school students to misuse the phone. (You must delete the comma) [k1] For example, students use the hand phones to taking and sharing unsuitable graphic materials. In addition, with bringing hand phone to school can help students to cheat in examinations easily. According to National Union of Teaching Profesion (NUTP) President, Hashim Adnan (2012), bringing hand phone to school it would create more disciplinary problems among the young students.

     Another point, with hand phone, it can gives many useful function and application for the hand phone. Sometimes, students need to calculate numbers in their Mathematics lesson or another subjects. So, with a hand phone students can use to calculate numbers in their Mathematics lesson or another subjects  (Do grammar correction =another subject) [k2] . Another reason, with hand phone, students can play the game that has quizzes in hand phones. It can help them to measure their performance. According to Shiratuddin & Zaibon (2009), mobile game based learning is a good function of hand phones for secondary school students.  What they say might be true. Nevertheless, bringing hand phone to school will give the negative impact to students. Hand phone will become a distraction in the student’s lesson. For example, new messages or incoming calls will surely disturb the secondary school student’s attention on what the teacher is teaching in front of the class. According Hashim Adnan (2012), bringing hand phone to secondary school would damage the young student’s concentration and can make more disciplinary problems.

     Lastly, the benefit of bringing hand phone to school among secondary school students is students can use the hand phone during emergency cases which may occur anytime. When the students become sick at the school, they have to return home late because of extra class or involve in accident, they can tell directly to her parents about it through the hand phone. Besides that, if the students are in a dangerous situation like being alone at the bus  stop (too much spacing)  [k3] or endanger by other students, they can call their parents or the polices for help. Another reason, when the students do homework and they do not know the meaning of sentences, they can use hand phone to search internet to find the meaning. To a certain extent they are right. Nevertheless, the emergency cases do not happen often especially when the students are in the school areas. Begin with bring hand phone to school, it can increase social problem among secondary school students. Students will use hand phones for online facebook,  (Capital F) [k4] twitter and so on. Besides that, they use the hand phones to messages their boyfriend or girlfriend and this can make a social problems among secondary students. According to Dr Wee (2012), many pregnant teenagers that’s ( the grammar is wrong. Please correct it) [k5] among young school students who are under the age of 18 and also unmarried.
     Due to the evidences that have been proven by the researchers, it is really clear that bringing hand phone to secondary school is distract the secondary school student’s attention and it also can make a disciplinary problems that can create increasing number of social problems among them.

Replacement Class @ Problem Solution Essay Games


Today we are two times class of BEL. Tonight is replacement class. At night class, we are doing problem solution essay. Miss Zu teaches our class about problem and solution essay. It has 2 patterns which are:

PATTERN 1

Problem 1, Problem 2, Problem 3
Solution 1, Solution 2, Solution 3

PATTERN 2

Problem 1, Solution 1
Problem 2, Solution 2
Problem 3, Solution 3

After Miss Zu had done explain about this essay, Miss Zu divided our class to 5 groups. I 'm group number 2 and Miss Zu give pattern 1 to make an essay. Each group has different topics and my group topic is "APPEARANCE OVER REALITY". There is our essay.

         In era globalization  the problem about the judgement is most popular now. Judgement is the act of judging or assessing a person or situation or event. Our mind setting , our personal background will influences people about something bad and lack confidence is the common problems about judgement. Thus in order to solve these judgement, parents should give proper educate to change the children’s perception on judge the people, increase the confidence level also can avoid people to easily judge by their appearance.

Our personal background very important to educate their children. According to Teale, 1993 the parental involvement in their children’s education, the most influential of these four elements described by Teale are the personal background and economic background of parents. In addition, parents must be teach our children between right and wrong. Therefore, what they learn from their parents of the lives will impact our children for rest of their lives.

One way to solve the problem is parents should educate their children with the proper education. It is because the children’s behavior in their life will be determined by how much their parents put into their life. According to Charles Desforges (2003), Parents should gives full attention and proper education to their children due to get a significant positive effect on children’s achievement and adjustment. It is because mostly the children will follow what their parents do and think. If the parents think bad negative on how they judge a people by looking their appearance  the children will easily to influenced and at the same time the mentally of the children will be negative .Thus, the parents should think the best way on how to educate their children.

Moreover,people tend to judge others on appearance because of their mind setting.People tend to say that you can not judge book by it cover but we are not apply this in our live.Such as when you meet someone for the first time you will judge that person roughly for 10 second.This happen so naturally,without we realize we always judge people by they looks.According to (Swami,2007) beauty and physical appearance are importance.This show that if we meet someone that have good looking faces or beautiful we will assume that person is a nice person or vise verse.

Therefore, we all have the ability to change our mind set. According to “How to change,”(nd), to change our core inner beliefs upon which we base our view of ourselves and of the world”. But changing our mind set is not an easy thing to do. Fortunately, our mind-set regarding certain aspects of our lives are malleable and are based on our choice of meaning we give to things. We must develop a positive mind set by positive thinking together with an attitude. In short,  we cannot judge people by it’s cover or appearances.

            Another problem is why people judge other on appearance are for security reason.People are not going to admit it but this is the reality that we must face it.People judge other because they want to make themselves feel confident and look good to others. Based on (Mess,2007)”most people are very worried about what other people think of them.”People view is more important that be our self.

Hence, we have to increase the level of self confidence. All people have their own advantage and disadvantages, so we did not have to feel embarrassed and blame to other people to pretend yourselves. here were surely times in your life, you felt yourself not confident enough to fight with the problems. . According to “How to increase,”(2007), there were surely times in your life, you felt yourself not confident enough to fight with the problems”. So, people have to boost their confidence to avoid people judge them easily.

In conclusion, there are many reaction of having looking on sight appearance over  entity of life. This bad behavior can affect our self by judgement from other people.It can causes mentality and narrow mindedness thinking that may lead to the first people judgement. It also come from secluded spectacle of family that can be affected to this problem.  Beside, lack of courageous also can affect the judgement from people view. As the result,people cannot have a bad perceptions towards people before they know them and parents should play their positive role in this situation towards their children.Therefore,there are many ways to overcome this problem.

Commenting Our First Draft

     Deputy Education Minister, Datuk Wee Ka Siong said, “Students would be allowed to bring hand phone to school starting 2013”. Mobile phones are believed to be useful in teaching and learning at schools by bringing mobile phones, students can access their lessons almost anywhere and anytime ,(Yes, absolutely true but if we let the students bringing their mobile phone at the school they may access many thing through internet. They will prefer using internet instead of books in the library which is more reliable than internet) said Quinn, 2000 and Mellow, 2005. Mobile phone could be considered as a motivational tool for learning. She has conducted many learning activities with mobile phone and these activities have shown positive outcomes, said Kolb, 2008.

     Bringing hand phones to school can give more benefits to secondary school students. Firstly, when the secondary school students bring hand phones to school, it can make lesson easier .(Please zubaidah and ani, refer to the expression of the opponents claim!!!!!) According to Kolb (2008) , hand phones which are popular among young students, might be measured as a motivational factor for learning.

According Hashim Adnan (2012), bringing hand phone to secondary school would damage the young student’s concentration and can make more disciplinary problems .

     Lastly, the benefit of bringing hand phones to school among secondary school students is students can use the hand phone during emergency cases which may occur anytime. When the students become sick at the school, they have to return home late because of extra class or involve in accident,(The reason is not strong enough.)  they can tell directly to her parents about it through by the hand phone.

Writing The Introduction

Assalamualaikum.. Hye guys. How are you? Today, Miss Zu teaches about Writing The Introduction of essay.

The functions of introduction are:

1) It attracts the reader's interest to continue reading the essay or get the reader's attention.

2) It supplies background information needed to understand the essay.

3) It indicates a plan of the essay's development (optional).

4) Set tone for the rest of the essay.

There are three part of the introductory paragraph which are the hook, the transition and the thesis statement.  The Hook means designed to grab attention immediately and give some indication about the essay;s topic. The transition means moves the reader from the hook to the driving force of the essay. The thesis statement means makes the contract with the reader about what will be discussed without a blatant announcement.

There are 8 types of hook:

1) Personal examples

2) Quotations

3) Fact or statistics

4) Rhetorical questions

5) Current events

6) Contrast to the thesis statement

7) Definition

8) Funnel / Broad to specific / general statements

Back to our topic for term paper. Our topic is "Authorization of bringing hand phone among secondary school students: Is it really beneficial or a nuisance?" I and Zubaidah choose four types of hook which are current events, rhetorical questions, fact or statistics and contrast.
