Bullsh*t Award

And the Bullsh*t Award for this week (Non-Trump Category) goes to: the following Quickwrite response from one of my students (A Quickwrite is like a single short answer question; should be about a paragraph, and show both thought and evidence in the answer.)

Subject: Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “Letter From Birmingham Jail”

Question: How do specific words and phrases contribute to the impact of King’s opening?

Answer: The more specific the words the more serious he sounds. The opening of a letter I think is the most important part of the letter. Its [sic] what makes people know if you are serious or playing. So the specific words and phrases he uses make him seem real & serious about what he is talking about.
