Christine Potts Who Are The Readers? The articles written in 75 Readings of Anthology obviously were written with intent of some specific readers in mind. "Should This Student Have Been Expelled" by Nat Hentoff, addresses the technicalities of the amendment freedom of speech. Although some people believe that you have the right to say whatever you want, there are certain stipulations that apply. You can't go out into the world yelling or proclaiming whatever you want. Some organizations, such as schools or workplaces, have certain rules of conduct. If you want to be a part of them, you have to somewhat sacrifice your rights. For instance, your professor can't direct ethnic slurs at the class or an employee can't express how he or she is truly feeling about an unruly customer to them. I think that Nat Hentoff wrote this article to address certain unspoken rules of society. Her readers were meant to be people that are not as aware of what their spoken words can lead to and the problems they may cause.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
