Exercise 1 When I was young, instead of abiding (1) by the guidelines set (2) down by teachers, I delighted (3) in drawing (4) up my own version of things. Teachers disapproved (5) of my “creations” and equated them (6) with rebellion. I was always punished (7) for being creative. I never got (8) away with it. My classmates would laugh (9) at my work and join the teacher (10) in criticizing my work. Gradually, I began to feel ashamed (11) of myself and decided that life would be easier if I conformed (12) to the teacher s instructions. Looking (13) back on that short period of “rebellion,” I wonder what would have happened if I had stood (14) up bravely for own beliefs and press (15) for acceptance and respect, instead of giving (16) up and surrendering so soon. Why should I be penalized (17) for being different? I should have felt proud (18) of my difference and believed firmly (19) in my vision! Should I have persevered (20) in , adhered (21) to , and even taken pride (22) in my unique way of interpreting the world around me, mankind would have seen the birth of another Picasso! Can I blame my narrow-minded teachers (23) for crushing the artist in me? The truth is that I could not come (24) to terms with the fact that I did not fit (25) in . So I chose to become a pleaser instead of the rebel I could have been. I have only myself to blame! Exercise 2: Can you spot some wrong uses of prepositions in this passage and correct them? Jane Archer’s article discusses about media and violence. After studying about children who watch television and play violent video games for more than three hours everyday, Archer warns us the danger of over-exposure to violence in the media.

    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.
