Sidoti 1 Danielle Sidoti Ben Rohling Comm 103 13 October 2004 Strong, But Not Strong Enough By attending the showing of the Fahrenheit 9/11 movie and observing the debate afterwards between two professors at the university, I learned a lot. The first debater who was against the movie (Fahrenheit 9/11) was Dr. Zev bar-Lev. All in all I did not enjoy listening to him debate because he was boring. He had all the right facts and quotes, but he had one major fault; he was obviously more conservative speaking about it in front of a whole room of mostly liberal college students. His ideas and thoughts were very one- sided, automatically shutting down the audience from even maybe listening to his side. From listening to Dr. Zev bar-Lev, I learned that no matter how much content you have to support your topic, it doesn’t matter unless you address the audience’s concerns and all parts of building a good speech are used. It seems as if one part is missing, the whole speech just goes down hill, so it is important to incorporate it all.

    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.
