Heath Baylee Heath Composition II Response 1 September 7, 2015 Response 1 Focusing on content: The principle of selection is the knowledge that a person takes in. Slection is determined by a persons interests and purpose. It also holds facts that we remeber and specific facts that we observe. Principle of selection works the same for everyone. Two people could receive the knowledge but both might remember certain parts more than the other depending on what interested them more. Principle of selection is all basied off of ones interest, point of view, and mental state. According to the Birks, slanting is different from the principle of selection happens when we convey our knowledge in words, this happens after principle of selection. Principle of selection happened when we are actually taking in the information, its like a screen that our knowledge passes through. Slanting is all about emphasis, words, and trying to really understand what the intention of the communicator is. A speaker can use emphasis to slant knowledge. When using emphasis you are giving stress to a subject matter, or just making it seem more important than other parts. Another device that can be used is the selection of facts, this either slants for, in balance, or against something. It is appropriate to use slant of language when you are trying to voice something that you feel strongly about. You are trying to get the reader to really feel how passionate you feel about something without using persuasion.

    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.
