1. “We should not forget that it will be just as important to our descendants to be prosperous in  their time as it is to us to be prosperous in our time.”— Theodore Roosevelt  A. What is the effect of the phrases “prosperous in their time” and “prosperous in our  time”?  It calls attention to “prosperous,” and hints that if they aren’t prosperous in their time,  their descendants might not be either.  B. Explain how it would change the effectiveness if Roosevelt had said, “We should not  forget that it will be just as important to our descendants to be prosperous in their  time as it is to us now.”  It’s not as clear. The word is still there, but it almost feels skimmed over. Roosevelt  wanted his point to come across strong, and saying it like this definitely weakens it. 2. “While we do these things, these deeply momentous things, let us be very clear, and make  very clear to all the world what our motives and our objects are.”— Woodrow Wilson  A. What is the purpose of placing the main clause (“…let us be very clear, and make  very clear to all the world what our motives and our objects are.”) at the end of the  sentence?

    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.
