    – COUNTERINTUITIVE PREDICTIONS: Is the claim true or mot true?
    – claim can be logical and true or logical and not true
    – decide if they have a right or wrong (moral or immoral) point of view
    -you can say “likely” instead of true or “unlikely” instead of untrue
    – Example: is it true?, likely?, good? OR untrue? unlikely? bad?
    – ROBUST SUBJECTS AND VERBS: make sentences better by getting rid of junk language
    – “there is”, “there are”= boring
    – “there” only establishes something exists
    – MECHANICAL REVISION: put primary point in independent clause
    – independent clauses emphasize claim
    – dependent clauses minimize objections

    -the weakest sentence you can write is one that starts with “there is”.
    -need to do more than just state something exists
    -if using the word ‘BY’ to start a sentence, need to state who is performing the task
    -using a negative and a positive verb together confuses the reader
    -starting a sentence with a specific claim such as “people don’t get fired” is hard to rephrase later on with another sentence saying that “people do get fired.”
    -positive verbs and primary points go with independent clauses
    -independent clause can stand on its own as a sentence

    Purging toxic elements
    Usually when a sentence begins with ” there is, there are, and this is” Usually defines something or tells that something is
    Before you read and article, take in account predictions before reading
    Declare if prediction era true or false, right or wrong, or reasonable and unreasonable
    Revise sentences so that the strongest subject completes the most robust action
    a negative verb followed by the word because
    Ex: I don’t love you because you’re beautiful: I love you, but not because you’re beautiful.
    An independent clause of a sentence can stand on its own a a sentence
    Look back on your previous post to find any negative verbs and create clauses

    Class Activities

    Robust Subject and Verbs
    – purge toxic elements
    – common phrases can kill good prose
    – “is” is the weakest verb
    – revise your sentence so that your strongest subject completes the most robust action
    – eliminate “is constructions”
    – copy and paste paragraph and revise it

    Not Because
    – sentences that follow a negative verb with because create confusion for readers
    – always lead sentences with the positive

    Revisions–Mechanical
    – independent clauses emphasize claims
    – dependent clauses minimize objections

    Counterintuitive Predictions
    – true or false
    – reasonable or unreasonable
    – ethical or unethical

    Advertising Failure
    – counterintuitivity in medicine

    Pure Toxic Elements
    Never start a sentence with “by” and get rid of “it is” “there is” and “there are”
    Sentences that begin with “because” confuses the reader
    The word “there” is only telling us that something exists
    Get rid of all that junk language in my essays
    Counterintuitive Predictions
    The most straightforward claims are the best types of claims

    Notes:
    – We need to start thinking about writing better sentences for paragraphs rather than bunch of alright sentences for a good pragraph
    – Dr. Adcock created a chart of outcomes of his colleagues
    – To create better sentences, get rid of junk words
    – Get rid of ‘there is’ and ‘it is’

  7. chavanillo says:

    Have to do “not because” and due the Blind summary

    Mammograms screening should be taken more seriously. The success below 80% causes women to not trust the pracitice of doctors which makes it harder to detect cancer. If we focus our assets to cancer resarch the problem could begin to minimize. Although cancer screenings could never be perfect starting with simple pracitice is the first step. Doctors need to follow up more and the doctor patient relationship needs to be more than money.
