Project #33204 - Writing a Synthesis Essay

"From Degrading to De-Grading" link : http://www.alfiekohn.org/teaching/fdtd-g.htm

"Against School" link : http://www.wesjones.com/gatto1.htm

 

Both of the essays listed below view our current education system in a negative light.  Kohn believes that grades interfere with learning and Gatto argues that our schools are "deliberately designed to produce mediocre intellects, to hamstring the inner life, to deny students appreciable leadership skills, and to ensure docile and incomplete citizens in order to render the populace 'manageable'" (509).  

Your assignment is to synthesize these two articles by drawing upon their similarities and differences and identifying the larger ideas that both essays elude to. Devise a thesis that is broad enough to encompass the ideas from the two articles and then draw information from the articles to support your thesis.

Before writing consider this:

PURPOSE -- to demonstrate a close reading of Kohn's and Gatto's essays, and to synthesize their ideas into a single response essay. Be sure to refer to the texts when appropriate and support your ideas with specific examples and explanations.
