  1. Weeds and Roses LA—Michelle obama

  2. I am SO impressed!! • These are the best 1st set of LA I’ve seen!! KUDOS! • Baby things to address • You are going to rock tomorrow’s essay—prepare by looking over your resources: • Organization list • 90/90 terms • Syntax terms • Purpose list You may use all these resources tomorrow, but it’s better to be familiar with them

She uses p. when she says, “he wants everyone in this country to have the same opportunity, no matter who we are, or where we’re from, or what…” The conjunction before each phrase sets each idea apart and suggests that he believes each of these phrases is of equal importance. One is not more important than another. The extra conjunctions emphasize that he does not value “who we are” over “where we’re from.” the overuse of conjunctions illustrates that BO values equal opportunities for all Americans. MO also characterizes BO using polysyndeton when she states…
