Wingdings 2:

To the Readers I was never really into writing essays and I was never really a fan of it. For me I thought I was never good at it ENGLCOM made me think otherwise, and the subject has thought me so much which made me improve the way I write and basically made me like writing in general. This E-Portfolio is mainly the combinations of all the essays we wrote during ENGLCOM class. I really do hope you all enjoy reading all my essays!

Travelogue:

Gender Inequality Gender Inequality is one of the major social issues in our society. Not only in the recent time, but even before the twenty-first century. It is how the society choses to believe that the men are the powerful sex. The society is certain that the men are the ones who should be working and the ones who are expected to provide for their families. While the women on the other hand are expected to take care of the kids and be housewives. This is for the reason the they think that women are not capable of doing work and that the men produce better outcomes than does of the women.

E-Portfolio:

I personally think that this issue goes beyond just perception of men and women in the sense of the working industry. It does not just stop there, there are more issues that the society sees regarding gender inequality. This issue proves that some people really do not have an open mind when it comes to these things. It is so unfair for the society to have the perception that the men should be this, and the women should be that. I think that this issue will carry on for years because there are still some people who cannot let go of their old practices despite the fact that our world is continuously developing. Gender Inequality

Message to the Readers:

Gender Inequality People nowadays have bigger plans for their lives. Women now are getting involved in the workforce, and some men choose to stay home and just run a small business. The bottom-line here is that men and women nowadays have different plans for their lives because they want to be in sync with the fast developing society.

Entry Essay:

Dancing What is Dancing? It is an art, which involves movement of the body. Dancing can be done in various ways and styles. It is simply the movement of the body, which is usually done with music accompaniment. Dancing is a pattern of movements, which is done with a specific song or music. It is an activity of moving of your feet and body in a pattern of movements that follows the sound of music. It is a rhythmic movement that typically follows a sequence of steps. These steps are then patterned to a specific beat or lyric of a song. It is performed in many cultures as a form of emotional expression, social interaction, or an exercise, in a spiritual or performance setting, and is sometimes used to express ideas or tell a story. Definitions of what constitutes dance can depend on social and cultural norms and aesthetic, artistic and moral sensibilities. 

Gender Inequality:

Dancing The exact origin of dancing is unknown, but even in the early days, it was used in a form of war, celebration and worship. It is believed that different tribes in the early days had their own different styles. These styles are called folk dances. The term folk are used to mean traditional and cultural. Folk dance is a traditional dance originating among a common people of a nation or region. This type of dance accompanies folk music, music originating among a certain ethnic group or race and characterized by an oral transmission. According to Oxford dictionary, folk dance is a popular dance considered as part of the tradition of a particular people or area. As time went, these so called folk dances evolved and were updated to fit the modernization of the society. Today there are a lot of different dancing styles, and these modern styles are mostly influenced from the western culture. These styles are Popping, Waacking, Break dancing, Street dancing, Krumping, Contemporary and many others.

Gender Inequality:

Dancing Now in order to narrow things down, I will specifically focus on a few styles of modern dancing that I personally follow. First is Street dancing, refers to dance styles—regardless of country of origin—that evolved outside of dancing in any available open space such as streets, dance parties, block parties, parks, school, yards, and night clubs. This particular style originated in New York. They are often improvisational and social in nature, encouraging interaction and contact with spectators and other dancers. Street Dance is usually considered urban folk dance. The second style emerged in Los Angeles it is called Waacking. Waack dancing is recognizable by its femininity, flailing arms and vogues (pausing while dancing to pose), using the arms hit every beat in the music to extenuate musicality. Personally this style is the best for me.

Gender Inequality:

Dancing The third style would be contemporary. Contemporary dancing deals with a lot of sensitive and sensual movements. The movements are generally flowing in nature although there are times when a certain emotion such as anger or excitement is trying to be portrayed and the movements may become quick and firm. Contemporary dancing is one of the best ways to tell a story through movements because a part of it requires acting and when dancing and acting are combined, it would be a lot easier for the audience to understand its message, story, or concept. Last style would be Krumping. Krumping is a style of dance that originated in the African-American community of South Central Los Angeles. It is intended as an outlet for anger and as a nonviolent alternative to the street violence widespread in many of the areas where it is performed. Consequently, its dancing style is fast and aggressive. It usually involves physical contact between dancers, which can often look like a fight to outsiders. These styles also need to fit of course to certain genre of music, which would go well with a certain style of dancing. These genres of music should also go along with the style of dance that a dancer is doing.

Extended Definition:

Dancing Dancing is considered as an art, and for it to be an art, one should know the history behind it. It should have a sort of evidence for it to be called an art. Art is “ the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form. ” Art involves the use of human skill and imagination, as the text says and it takes a lot of skill and imagination to dance as well. The movements that dancers make are not simply to look appealing. They move for a purpose.

Dancing:

Dancing Dancing is not just moving your arm or legs or your entire body, dancing should tell a story and it should go beyond what only the eyes could see. This is the beauty of dancing; that is telling a story. Dancers do not just make random steps; they create these steps based on a story that they would want the audience to see. Dancers usually use storytelling as a way of conceptualizing a dance routine. In this way the audience will gather something about the performance, not only focusing on a certain style that they used but also the story behind the whole routine and how the dancers came up with it. In time dancers and audiences will understand the connection that they have in between. In this manner the audience will then appreciate what the dancers have to offer and what they performed as an art. Dancing is the language of the dancer ’ s soul.

Argumentative Essay

Dancing:

Argumentative Essay Over 3.2 million students are victims of bullying each year and 1 in 4 teachers see nothing wrong with bullying and will only intervene 4 percent of the time. What is Bullying? Bullying in definition is unwanted, aggressive behavior usually among school-aged children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated overtime. Bullying involves actions like making threats, spreading rumors, attacking someone physically or verbally, and excluding someone from a group on purpose.

Dancing:

Essentially, when one shows atrocious or mean actions to purposely hurt someone ’ s feelings or even worse hurt them physically, that is bullying. Bullying also comes in different forms. It is not just someone punching you on the face or a bully calling you names that you find offending. Bullying is a lot more than just that, there are different kinds of bullying. For instance, there is physical bullying, verbal bullying, indirect bullying, social alienation, intimidation and cyber-bullying. Argumentative Essay

Dancing:

Argumentative Essay It is very unfortunate that the recent statistic shows that bullying is on the rise among young adults, teens and children. The rise in these bullying statistics is prone due to an equally recent form of bullying seen in recent years called cyber bullying. This type of bullying has gotten vast media attention over the past few years sighting instances of cyber bullying pushed too far, and in many cases leading to cases of teen suicide or death. Many bullying statistics and studies have found that physical attacks have been replaced with constant cyber assaults in the form of bashing, rumors and other hazing content targeted at a single student or group of students.

Dancing:

Argumentative Essay Sadly children who are bullied are more likely to feel disconnected and not like school. Since most of the harassing happens in the vicinity of the school therefore making the victim not want to go to school. Along with this the victims will show low performance during school works, resulting because of lower academic focus and depraved attendance. Some other effects on the victims are depression, lack of self-esteem, anxiety, feelings of loneliness and isolation. Extreme impacts on victims may lead to high risk of suicide, however the reason has to be very complicated for it to reach that point.

Argumentative Essay:

Argumentative Essay On a bigger perspective the parents and teachers should be involved in stopping this said violent action. Bullies usually comes from a broken families or homes where the parents often fight, therefore resulting their children to be molded in violence. Early intervention and proper discipline may truly help resolve bullying. Although parents or even therapists may sometimes not be able t change how a bully thinks, so school environment should be fixed since this is the place where bullying usually take place. Teacher intervention may help students, not only victims but also bullies. School programs such as counseling of some sort, either by peer, individually or by class, or sometimes may also include parents may help eradicate bullying.

Argumentative Essay:

Argumentative Essay As for those victims, they should talk about the deed; tell teacher or a friend or even a family member to plan and sort things out. No one is ever going to help you if you do not start helping your self. An individual on the other hand needs to talk to those bullies. These bullies may often find bullying as an “ Okay ” thing to do because of some deeper background or a recent happening in their lives. They may always look tough and strong, but underneath that cover is someone who insecure and just wanting to fit into society by acting “ cool ” and try to make themselves feel better.

Reflective Essay

Argumentative Essay:

Reflective Essay At the start of the term, I was really anxious about how my subjects are going to be and if I was going to have a tough time dealing with them. Like most students, yes I had a hard time and I will admit that college is really different from high school. Especially with some subjects that I am having now, it is a lot different than it was before. When I saw my subjects for this term, I got really intrigued with ENGLCOM. I knew it was going to be all about writing and reading and I thought it was going to be a bummer, but surprisingly I loved my ENGLCOM classes. RVLC and WCLC classes were really fun, thrilling and productive. In RVLC, the class focuses more on readings and essays. On the other hand WCLC focuses more on writings and also essays, basically it improves how you should write about something.

Argumentative Essay:

Reflective Essay I honestly like writing essays, I remember back in high school, that whenever we would have group reports and stuff, I would always want to be in charge of the reflection part or essay part. Back I thought that essay writing was just about writing how you feel and writing things that are in your mind, but I learned in ENGLCOM that it was more than just that. It is not just about writing anything that you want to say and writing how you feel. I learned that the way that an essay is constructed and how it was made is really important. I learned that an essay should have an organized body, thought and facts to support your claims. It was more than just knowing a bit of what you want to say. It is crucial that you understand every single detail about what you are about to write. In this way you will be producing an essay that is clear and is full of thought.

Argumentative Essay:

Reflective Essay In class, we were required to construct essays that tackle different issues and different topics. Truly, for me it was easier to pick a topic that I already have knowledge about. It is a lot faster for me to write about something that I already have a background on. In this way I could say more and give more thought on a specific topic that I am already knowledgeable of. It is a bit tricky when you write about something that you are not familiar of and honestly it was really hard for me to tackle in an essay about social issues today. Though I realized that if you do not try something different then you would never learn something new. It is pretty much saying that you can learn new things by doing new things. So, when were required to write an Argumentative Essay, I really tried to talk about something that I am not that familiar of which was Bullying. Yes I may have heard of someone getting bullied, though it was more than just that. There are always things behind it that you will learn about.

Argumentative Essay:

Reflective Essay Going over our ENGLCOM syllabus, I would that I have learned so much new things about essay writing. I am proud to say that I have seen myself improve in the way that I write my essays. I am always open for new learning ’ s and new things because I believe that in this way I will be the best me that I can be. None stop learning means none stop success.

Reflective Essay:

Abortion in Manila "A person is a person, no matter how small."(-Dr. Seuss) An abortion is when the pregnancy is ended so that it does not result in the birth of a child. Sometimes this is called “ termination of pregnancy ” . An abortion is a procedure to end a pregnancy. It uses medicine or surgery to remove the embryo or fetus and placenta from the uterus. The pregnancy is removed from the womb, either by taking pills (medical abortion) that involves taking medicines to cause a miscarriage or by surgery (surgical abortion) where the pregnancy is removed from the womb. Most abortions can be provided on a day care basis, which means you do not need to stay at a clinic overnight. In some cases abortion can be successful, but in other cases this may lead to fatal injury or worst, death. Abortion I said to be legal in some countries but in a catholic country like ours it is not. It is considered immoral and inhumane. Some find it cruel and unjust but still some mothers choose to do it, especially mothers with unwanted pregnancy.

Reflective Essay:

Abortion in Manila In the Philippines, abortion is illegal. Article II of the 1987 Philippine Constitution states that the State recognizes the sanctity of family life and shall protect and strengthen the family as a basic autonomous social institution. It shall equally protect the life of the mother and the life of the unborn from conception. Although a law is already in existence still more and more women result to abortion. Who are having abortions? Women of all ages and economically stable backgrounds have induced abortions; more poor women (68%) choose to have this procedure compared to non-poor women (32%). And because safe surgical abortions can cost as much as P15,000 , poor women are also more likely to have unsafe abortions compared to their richer counterparts.

Reflective Essay:

Abortion in Manila Why is abortion prevailing? Abortion in the Philippines is majorly cause by poverty. Mothers who choose to abort the child for they are poor or economically unstable or these are mothers who have already several children and are not efficient of having another one. Women who practice sexual intercourse without the means of using modern contraception also do abortion. In some cases teenage women who get pregnant result to abortion for they are still not capable of having a baby, or they still want to continue with school.

Reflective Essay:

Abortion in Manila There can be different causes why women result to abortion. Especially in our country where people are sexually uneducated and lack family planning, that is why some really still do it. It would sound really unfair but this is reality and this is mainly caused by poverty. If only people are properly educated then abortion would not be a big issue in our society. It sounds really ironic that a Catholic country like the Philippines still practices this inhumane and cruel deed. It will continue to be a big issue for our country if we will still continue to be in poverty. It is sad, unjust and unfair but this is reality, this is how really things are.

Film Analysis

Abortion in Manila:

Side Walk (2010) One out of ten Americans is now living in poverty, says the U.S. census bureau. There is a documentary regarding this same issue, which is poverty in the U.S. Specifically a group of black homeless Americans who depend on selling books along 6 th avenue between 8 th street and Washington place in New York. The film primarily speaks of how North Americans who are homeless make effort in selling old books or magazines along the sidewalks of the concrete jungle, New York City. The films drives us into a social world people existing on the avenues of New York by centering on their work as street side booksellers, magazine vendors, junk dealers, panhandlers, and table watchers. The Sidewalk makes people see how these groups of people manage to survive even with just selling old books. It gives a deeper understanding of how these individuals are able to subsist.

Abortion in Manila:

Side Walk (2010) Here are some specific causes of poverty or insufficiency in New York City, one of the richest cities in the world; food poverty is around every corner. Throughout the five boroughs, approximately 1.4 million, mainly women, children, seniors, the working poor and people with disabilities rely on soup kitchens and food pantries. Approximately 2.6 million New Yorkers experience difficulty-affording food for themselves and their families. Figures from the U.S. Census Bureau reveal that insufficiency in America is projected to distress over 35.9 million people, including nearly 13 million children.

Abortion in Manila:

Side Walk (2010) The primary cause of poverty in the United States stems from societal structuring, social or racial grouping and stereotyping, isolation from social interactions and opportunities, lack of knowledge, employment skills, education and resources.

Abortion in Manila:

Side Walk (2010) It is sad how even in one of the worlds most advanced countries poverty still exists. Basing on the documentary, New York City that is one of the world ’ s richest cities, still cannot avoid the emergence of street vendors. It is also very surprising that the main causes of why these people are in poverty is because of their lack of the ability to work, or lack of education and discrimination. It is very unfortunate that in the midst of all the developments and advancements, there are still individuals who suffer from poverty. I personally believe that the government tries to solve these issues, although if an individual is incompetent or incapable of working or even worse uneducated, then it would be really tough for the U.S government to fix this problem.
