Watch the video The 5 Principles Behind the 10 Secrets on YouTube. I suggest you watch the lecture at least a couple of times before you write your response. We always miss important and interesting details when we read, watch or listen to something only once.
This is a presentation/lecture by trading educator Anton Kriel.
Topic For Composition Exercise
What motivated Anton Kriel to do this lecture? Based on the context in which Kriel discusses the concept what is a principle? What is Kriel’s complaint about mass education? Which one of the five principles do you find most useful and how could you apply it to help you reach your goals in life? Please answer these questions and explain your answers. Also quote from the video and other material you’ve explored this semester.
For your composition exercises please write:
1. (format) a 500-word composition. Use Courier New, 12-point font and double space and MLA style.
2. (content) Your composition needs an answer and specific details for each question in the topic. Within your 500-word limit you must cite from the material you’ve read and/or watched to support your ideas. As Abraham Lincoln wrote, “It is a pleasure to be able to quote lines to fit any occasion.” Use two-three quotes from the sources in your composition to “fit” your interpretation of the material.
3. (focus) Stay focused on the topic. Everything you write should have a connection to the topic and your ideas.
4. (clarity) When you proofread check for common errors like fragments, run-on’s, commonly confused words, tense shift, subject-verb disagreement, spelling, etc. Try to adhere to the KISS Principle. This means keep your sentences short and simple and divide your composition into short easy to read paragraphs.
