Example text

The spoken language database contained eightyseven texts of about five thousand words each. Interactive Versus Edited Texts Biber analyzed these two sets of data to identify how they differed from one another. He found three differences. First, the spoken texts were more interactive and showed more personal involvement. The written texts, partly because writers have more time to work on a text, used a greater variety of vocabulary and were more carefully edited. These texts showed less personal involvement.

Although they are highly motivated, they often need extra help to achieve academic success, and they may need more time than traditional school systems allow. Involuntary minorities • The other category of students Ogbu identified, involuntary minorities, includes groups like African Americans, Mexican Americans, and Native Americans. Many of them have lived in the United States for generations. These are minority groups who either were in the United States before it became a country, were brought as slaves, or lived in regions, such as the Southwest, where wars resulted in border shifts.

Although Dolores develops this third reason more fully, she does not provide any concrete examples or data to support her claims about racism. Having explained why minorities don’t attend universities, Dolores turns to her second point, what needs to be done to solve the problem. She argues that if minorities were tested, they would prove themselves. This would lead to changes. Minorities would become more intelligent, earn more money, and find work. This would cause other people to realize that everyone has the right to decide her own future and have a better life.
