Out of Context

School systems are so notoriously out of date these days, between history classes, VCRs, and textbooks actually made of paper. You would think that in this day and age they might place a little more emphasis and technology classes. But what can you expect. The administration is always full of the last generation. Humanity will always be one step behind itself.

Okay, I’m getting a little too profound for my own liking. Or do I just flatter myself? But seriously. So after a long Spring Break of well, break, it’s time to get back to work, partly because someone reminded me of some synthesis essay that was assigned last minute for English. What the heck is a synthesis essay anyways? (That’s how I got reminded, because we’ve never done one in class before.)

“Develop a position about whether the American Dream is able to be attained today.”

Sources to use: the Great Gatsby, Raisin in the Sun, and other assorted poems from last century. That’s right. Last century. What good is something from last century to me in deciding whether or not we can make it today’s world? Learn from the past, but I don’t remember college being such a big deal in the 1940’s.

Well, I’m sure I can twist the facts to write something about nothing to answer the prompt. Always have.
