The following portfolio contains the contents of my Rhetoric 101-02 class from the Summer Session 2012 at the American university in Cairo, Egypt. This portfolio is reflecting my progress in writing, where Mr. Mike Gibson helped me a lot in developing my style, so I decided to organize the contents chronologically. We began the course with some free writings -- writing without stopping. Mr. Mike told us that this type of writing would be very important to increase our fluency and develop our way of thinking. Then, we began to talk about how to analyze. Finally, we began writing many essays while involving some of our free writings and our analyses. So the work from the course will appear in that order.

Reply For an article I have read Actually, I don't understand what I should to in my response to what I have read, but as a general conclusion, I think that free writing is for sure a very salient process for students to have fluency in reading and writing English. The main problem that face students while learning different languages is that they can't think as fast as they think in their own language and express it in their own words. I used to suffer from this problem, and I think that I still do suffer from it, but at least my year in AUC has helped me to overcome a bit this problem, as I became more confident while speaking to others and it improved my vocabulary so that I could express my opinion in different methods. I hope that Free writing can continue the learning process I'm going through and help develop my language a lot .

These are some free writings that were wrote by hand writing but I has rewrote them using word document. Introducing Myself My name is Mohamed Mahmoud El-hady. My friends call me Hady. I am 19 years old. I used to be in the Egyptian language school. Now I am studying Mechanical Engineering in The American University in Cairo. I play basketball for the AUC team. I travel a lot with this team. I got a sister that is a doctor and a brother that is in the first secondary. I live in "EL SHEROUK" I love hanging out with my friends, doing sports and travelling.

Presidential Elections After 25th revolution, This is the first time in the Egyptian history to have a fair election and that all the Egyptians could vote for the candidate they want without any method for corruption to occur . As for me, I took my decision and I know that many people were against me, but I felt that this was the right choice and that people should respect it. I have voted for Mohamed Morsy, although a lot of people thought that this was a foul decision. The issue is that I have found out that the final results will be between , Mohamed Morsy , Hamden Sabahy, Ahmed Shafik, Amr moussa, and Abdelmenem abo el fetouh. The problem with Hamden Sabahy was that I found him a bit like Gamal Abdelnasser and that his thoughts were mainly like Abdelnasser. The point is that time differs and that choosing a candidate with these feathers will be useless to Egypt. As for Ahmed Shafik and Amr Moussa, I didn't want to involve anyone from the old regime in the new Egypt. As for abdelmenem abo el Fetouh, I found in the beginning that he would be a very good president in such a situation, but then I found out that he was trying to be with all sides, and not by his thoughts. He was trying to make all sides love him and this showed him as an inexperienced man. Finally, I found that the candidate Mohamed Morsy was the most suitable man for this job, although I know that the Muslims brotherhood have fallen in many mistakes that made a lot of people not trust them anymore , but the issue is that all humans mistake. I found that Mohamed Morsy had his values and pride since he was young. I also saw that he can handle this political situation in Egypt from his points of view. He was the only candidate that showed us a plan of how to develop Egypt. The problem is that people think that he will not respect what he promised people with , of quitting any party , treating all people equally, and treating "EL morshed" and " Elshater" as if they are normal citizens. So, I hope that all people could give him only a chance and keep an eye on him to see how it would end .As I believe in


Mohamed 7

this man and I feel that he will be the leader of an amazing future for our new Egypt, that will be full of success and development.

An Email to My Father Dear my lovely dad, I am writing to tell you that I have got high grades in the university. I also want to tell you that I am helping my brother with his studies to get high grades . I also want to tell you that I have got the gold medal in basketball. Dad I promise on keeping the good work if you just lend me your new Mercedes for just one day to go with my friends to the beach. I love you the greatest man on earth.


Mohamed 10

My Fathers Reply Dear son, Getting high grades and helping your brother with his studies are not options for you. Try not to do so , and then you will good bye your car, your pocket money, and of course I won't pay you money for your university. Of course you know how much I pay for you per semester. You could take my car, but this will be in your dreams. Don't think you could ever deceive me. I was thinking in such a way 30 years ago. Take care of yourself and don't destroy your life because I could destroy it for you. I love you my lovely son.


Mohamed 11

Analyzing my self Mr. Mike has told us to write about anything in our character and analyze it. I am stuck and I don't know what to write. I hope that this writing is not graded because I think till the time finish I will keep on writing these shitty useless sentences and of course I will get a Zero. Or you know what, let's give it a try. There are many questions that we keep asking to ourselves. One of these questions is why I love playing basketball. Maybe because I am tall , or maybe because I think myself talented. Sometimes I believe that when I chose to play basketball, that this was the worse decision I have ever taken in my whole life. Why didn't I play football? This popular sport that could have made me famous and rich one day.


Mohamed 12

Being a Flower Leave my brother alone. He is still young. Take my life instead of his life. Leave my family. Please don't cut us. Just leave us live in peace. You will kill my beauty and my shine. God has created us ;flowers, to make the area around you humans clean and beautiful so why are you killing us? Take care of your children they are cutting my leaves. You stupid parents, if I was a human like you , I would have slap you on your faces.


Mohamed 13

Travelling

What to write ? I think that my mind is stuck and that is has become blocked. Nothing to think about and nothing to write about. Could I write about sports? No , I have written about this topic more than 100 times and it has become so boring. Could it be travelling. of course yes, this is a quit exciting topic. I like travelling so much, the last trip I have been to, was Lebanon . It was with my AUC team. We have been there in a tournament playing with three popular teams in Lebanon. AUB, LAU, and MAST. We had a lot of fun there , although we lost out match against the MAST. We have been there for 8 days, I knew many people and I have made a lot of friends there. I have spend my time there doing different activities. I had a lot of experience and I have made some things I have never do in my life. The best thing about Lebanon was its food, where I could never forget or taste such food except in this country.


Mohamed 14

The Situation In Egypt

According to what happened in Egypt, many people are afraid and have many fears concerning the new president of Egypt. Unfortunately, I am one of these people. The problem is that people are afraid from Mohamed Morsy not to do what he has promised people . They think that he will be loyal only to the Muslims brotherhood and that he will allow The Muslims brotherhood to interfere in the Egyptian politics. People are also afraid that Mohamed Morsy will be under the control of "ALMORSHED" and "KHAYRAT EL SHATER" . On the other hand. I feel that Mohamed Morsy won't be this type of man , and that he will lead Egypt to the development and to the best. I think that he will respect his words with people and that he will lead a new age full of development. I am just hoping that people could give him a chance and I think that he will begin a new life of equality and success.

An Outline for a New assignment Is cold war still going? What is cold war? Why are some countries using these methods . It might be still going between America and Russia and it might be between two other countries. Maybe Israel and Iran. Could this cold war return to a great war (world war 111) . Are there any countries going to use nuclear weapons in such conditions although all the disasters it could cause from destroying humans?

Collage

I know that this collage is not a good one... but I tried to be a bit creative and invent a new way to write this collage of my free writings. Hope nobody has used this method before. These are some advice collected from my writings. Don't destroy your life. Don't let people deceive you. Don't try not getting high grades. Don't cut flowers. Don't slap humans. Don't do useless things. Don't go to night clubs. Don't be evil. Don't write useless sentences. Don't study mechanical Engineering. Don't analyze evil humans. Don't lose hope. Don't love evil.


Mohamed 17

Don't destroy your car. Don't travel without money. Hope that you like this collage and I hope that I get the full mark . Thank you for reading.

Draft One First assignment source:- http://in.reuters.com/article/2012/06/18/egypt-election-detailsidINDEE85H00O20120618 Title of the passage:- Egypt's Brotherhood gives breakdown of vote win

Summary of the passage :- The Muslim Brotherhood stated that Mohamed Morsy has

won the elections with 5 percent more than Ahmed Shafik and this makes him 52.5

percent and Ahmed Shafik 47.5 percent. On the other hand, Media has announced that

that these results were initial results and that 98 percent of the votes were only counted

and that the winner could be changed after counting all the votes. The passage also

hints that the Military rules will have its own negative impacts on the results and the

winner whoever the winner is.

Analyzing the passage:- I think that Mohamed Morsy is the winner and that the two

percent left won't affect the results as the difference in votes is 5 percent. The main

issue is that , I feel that Media is announcing such announcements forced by the

Military as a sort of threatening for the Mohamed Morsy not to judge their actions for

the past year and a half. They are trying to force him to accept their deal and rules or

else they could change the results, and this is why they are leaving a space , so that


Mohamed 19

they could change the winner.

Passage:- Whoever the winner is, people should respect people's opinion even if they

oppose this opinion, because this is democracy, .Although I think that choosing Ahmed

Shafik was the most stupid decision people could take, as they will turn back to the old

regime, but I totally respect their opinion. The problem is that I feel that there are some

secret actions happening behind the Egyptian people , and that the Military has

postponed the elections for a year and a half not for the respect of law, but for their own

interests. My thoughts are based on what the Military has done. If we analyze their

actions, we will find that , Firstly they said that the presidential elections cannot be done

before the parliament is done, then before the elections by two days, they eliminates

the parliament saying that it is illegal. Secondly, inventing a story that the mother of the

candidate Hazem Salah Aboismeal has the American nationality and that he could not

continue in the elections. This was after he said on Media that he will judge the military

and in specific "El- Mosheir Tantawy" .Thirdly, not informing the real winner of the

elections , and leaving rumors to spread all over Egypt, to give themselves a chance to

act in the best way against people's actions. Finally, these new laws that decreases the


Mohamed 20

permissions of the president and make the Military more powerful and has more

authority than the president , and I think that this is way they are acting in such way.

The issue is that the Military has their own weapon's deals , thoughts, and money, and

this is why they are afraid from any new president that could not accept these deals.

What makes me afraid is that, the old system hasn't end yet. I am afraid that it will very

hard for it to end, because the corruption of 30 years won't end in a year and a half. It

must be destroyed from its roots. I hope that all people are aware of these plans made

by the old regime to build its self another time and to win against the revolution and

destroy people's hope as usual. In my opinion Mohamed Morsy is our last chance even

if he is not the right person in this stage, but at least we differ with him politically , but at

least he was one of the revolutionaries that will defend our revolution against its

enemies .

Final draft First assignment

Elections Tricks After reading the article "http://in.reuters.com/article/2012/06/18/egypt-election-detailsidINDEE85H00O20120618" titled "Egypt's Brotherhood gives breakdown of vote win" , The article has stated that Mohamed Morsy has won the elections with 5 percent more than Ahmed Shafik and this makes him 52.5 percent and Ahmed Shafik 47.5 percent. I kept asking myself many questions. Why did Mohamed Morsy announce that he is the winner before all the votes were calculated? Was this because he had spies in each school that are in contact with him and told him that they have calculated the numbers of vote for him and the other candidate and found out that he is the winner? Or was this because when 98 percent of the results were out he found out that the rest won't differ in the final result? . Although he won, but people should well-think about this issue , as this could be considered as a case for cheating for Mohamed Morsy, as any sort of asking the voters about their votes, or watching them while voting is are considered illegal. Another question was , why did Ahmed Shafik also announce himself as the winner of the presidential elections after Mohamed Morsy said that he is the winner? Is this because he wanted to give himself a chance to make the Judges take another look on the results. Nobody knows the answer. Democracy, a word that the Egyptian people were about to forget its meaning. Will they really gain their freedom. I don't think so, as the old regime that used to spread corruption for 30 years all over the Egyptian era, won't end in a year and a half. Corruption must be cut from its roots. Furthermore, If the military really ruled the country for just a transition period, Why did


Mohamed 25

they come out with these new laws that reduces the authorities of the president and increases their authorities, and why did they cancel the new parliament. This is mainly because the military people are afraid of being judged of their actions , and also because they have their own weapon's deals , thoughts, interests ,money, and this is why they are afraid from any new president that could not accept these deals. This is for sure because the Muslims brotherhood will have full authority in the Parliament and the presidency, so they will be able to judge everybody. Where is Egypt heading? Are we going to be like Turkey and Malaysia , or are we going to be like Algeria and Sudan. I think that if Mohamed Morsy does what he promised people with , Egypt will gain a lot of popularity in the coming years and we will reach our aim, but if he is leaded by the Muslims brotherhood as people think , we will be even worth than Algeria. This is because people found out that Muslims brotherhood are liars and most people don't respect them nowadays because of their actions, beginning from saying that they won't put any candidate from them and then putting two candidates, and escaping from the revolution field in the time all people needed them. The issue is that Mohamed Morsy promised people that he will quit any party and just focus on the interests of his country and its needs, and this is what all Egyptians want. We just need to choose the right path. Even more questions people are asking to themselves, but what is right and what is wrong is the right question.

First draft Second assignment Who am I Why do I play basketball? Is it because I think myself talented? Or is it because I am tall. Do I really know how to play basketball? What do people think about me while I am playing. Do they see me Lebron James , Or do they see me as an amateur? Another question that I keep asking to myself is why do I like postponing all my work to the last minute. Is that because I am a lazy person, or is it because I don't respect time. Getting nervous, Is getting nervous on someone that you love can be justified? Why do I get nervous on people that I love and appreciate. I think that this is because I am always afraid about them and I always put them in a higher place than all people, so the issue is that I don't accept their failure. A Fuzzy question that I always ask to myself is , why am I the only person in my friends that didn't drink bear or cigarettes. Do I really think that they are wrong habits , or do I want to be special, and that people will think that I have my own perspectives. What do my friends think about me? Do they really love me, or are they just pretending to be loving me. But, why should do they such actions, I got nothing that I could afford to them except being a good friend. For sure I am wrong, My friends love me because I am always beside them in their sad moments before their happiness. What do I think of myself? Am I really that sexy man that women like ? Or am I just an ordinary man that women don't care about me. Of course I am the sexy guy that all women want. But, why don't I like being involved in any sort of relation or why don't I like going on any type of dating. Is it because I am afraid of acting in an embarrassing way , or is it because I don't have confidence in myself. No way, For sure this is because I got a sister that I don't accept her going for a date, so I won't accept anything on people's daughters that I don't accept it to my sister or


Mohamed 28

my daughter when I am a father. Are all of these characters defects , or are they just normal human's characters.

Final draft Second assignment Discovering Me Why do I play basketball? Is it because I think myself talented? Or is it because I am tall. Do I really know how to play basketball? What do people think about me while I am playing. Do they see me Lebron James , Or do they see me as an amateur? Of course I am an amateur compared with players like those of the NBA. How could I compare myself to people flying in the air. They keep practicing more than 8 hours per day. I only practice half an hour per day. Of course there won't be any comparison. Another question that I keep asking to myself is why do I like postponing all my work to the last minute. Is that because I am a lazy person, or is it because I don't respect time. Am I a last minute person? Or do I just forget about important work. For sure this is because I am a lazy person, but how to overcome such laziness. It is like a disease that might destroy my life. I really don't know. It is just things that I do without even thinking. Hope I find a solution soon. Getting nervous, Is getting nervous on someone that you love can be justified? Why do I get nervous on people that I love and appreciate. I think that this is because I am always afraid about them and I always put them in a higher place than all people, so the issue is that I don't accept their failure. But, why don't I accept their failure? Maybe because I don't accept failure on myself? But what is the relation? I think that I act with people that I love as if they are part of me, and this is why I always want them to succeed in their lives. A Fuzzy question that I always ask to myself is , why am I the only person in my friends that don't drink bear or cigarettes. Do I really think that they are wrong habits , or do I want to be special, and that people will think that I have my own perspectives, or is it because I'm a basketball player and I don't want to destroy my health? I think that this is because: First of all my religion warned me from drinking bear and destroying my life with stuff like cigarettes, also I know that they are


Mohamed 32

wrong habits that will destroy my health, so it's useless doing things that have no benefits, but all harms. What do my friends think about me? Do they really love me, or are they just pretending that they love me. But, why should they pretend so, I got nothing that I could afford to them except being a good friend and loyal. For sure I am wrong, My friends love me because I am always beside them in their sad moments before their happiness. Still, why am I always beside them. Maybe because I know that they are always beside me and that they are loyal to me, or is it because they are my childhood friends that I treat them now as my brothers. I think for both. What do I think of myself? Am I really that sexy man that women like ? Or am I just an ordinary man that women don't care about. Of course I am the sexy guy that all women want. I am tall and in shape, what else should women want from a Man except a sexy body and being tall. But, why don't I like being involved in any sort of relation or why don't I like going on any type of dating. Is it because I am afraid of acting in an embarrassing way in front of women , or is it because I don't have confidence in myself. No way, For sure this is because I got a sister that I don't accept her going for a date, so I won't accept anything on people's daughters that I don't accept on my sister or my daughter that when I am a father. This is because of my religion forbids relations between non-married men and women. Why am I sad , sure this is because I won't use my gift of being sexy.

First draft Third assignment World War 3 There are some threats concerning the occurrence of a third world war full of Nuclear weapons and a new weapons technology. There are some predictions that this war will be between Iran with the support of Hezbollah in a side and Israel with the support of the U.S.A. The conflict started after the fast development of Nuclear technology to both Iran and Israel, and each being scared from not being the strongest in his region. Israel is now trying to escape from this war by all means , as it is sure that after the U.S.A wars with Iraq and Afghanistan and the enormous economic lost it has fallen in, it will think 100 times before being involved in such a war. Also, Israel well-knows that an attack on Iran won't be that easy and they can't expect anything as they can't limit the Iranian power. Ties are becoming weak between these countries , and Iran is now threaten Israel that it is concentrating its nuclear weapons toward Israel and that it could destroy it any second. Is the situation going to continue like this. Is another world war going to occur and another nuclear weapons will be used and result in destroying Humans for another 40 years.

Second draft Third assignment World War 3 There are some threats concerning the occurrence of a third world war full of Nuclear weapons and a new weapons technology. There are some predictions that this war will be between Iran with the support of Hezbollah in a side and Israel with the support of the U.S.A. The conflict started after the fast development of Nuclear technology to both Iran and Israel, and each being scared from not being the strongest in his region. Disaster, a very strong word, but it is very tiny compared to what might happen in such a war. Israel is now getting enemies in all regions surrounding it, that makes it very afraid of any sudden attack. Israel is now trying to escape from this war by all means , as it is sure that after the U.S.A wars with Iraq and Afghanistan and the enormous economic lost it has fallen in, that reached near $ 3 Trillion, will think 100 times before being involved in such a war. Also, Israel knows that an attack on Iran won't be that easy and they can't expect anything as they can't limit the Iranian powers. Ties are becoming weak between these countries , and Iran is now threaten Israel that it is concentrating its nuclear weapons toward Israel and that it could destroy it any second. Why is Iran threaten the U.S.A and Israel? For sure, it is because of their believes that Israel has stolen the Palestinian land, and killing their brothers in religion every day. This concept is found among all Muslims, and that since ancient History and Palestine was an Arab country that contains the "Aqsa Mosque" that has its special place for all Muslims. Is the situation going to continue like this. Is another world war going to occur and another nuclear weapons will be used and result in destroying Humans like that one used by the U.S.A against Japan. people there were melted and vaporized. Just the steel in the cities were remained. No humans. These nuclear weapons have mutated people , animals, crops, and any sort of life on these cities. No one live on these cities now because they have became unsuitable for living for more than 60 years. It is simple that war is a failure that can end with a misery. But, how to stop wars? The problem is that countries know the tragedy that wars cause from enormous economic lost, humans lost, and even land lost. The issue also is that all countries know that war has no winner. All sides are losers. How could people think about war ,


Mohamed 35 and even nuclear wars after all of these tragedy years? How could countries even think about being involved in other wars? Are humans that stupid ? People should develop from their thoughts and the way they think. Unfortunately, looking for the authority and the strength is all what these people think about. How could we lead a better life while such models of people are found in our societies and surrounding us everywhere. Shall we kill them all? The problem is that these kinds of people are same people that others vote for them, and give them the full authority to take the decision. Where is the world hidden? I hope that we could overcome the coming wars and lead better lives in our futures.


Mohamed 36 Final draft Third assignment.

Nuclear weapons Weapons, tools that cause destruction whenever they are seen. Are they going to be used after all of these wars along the human's history? There are some threats concerning a near world war that could decide how the world will be in the coming centuries. The main issue is about the new weapons technologies , especially Nuclear weapons that could result in the extermination of the human species. Disaster, a strong word, but it is very tiny compared to what might happen in such wars. These weapons can cause people to melt and vaporize. Just steel will remain. No humans will remain. They mutate people, crops, and any sort of life. A good example is what happened in Japan , resulting in no existence of life in the destroyed cities by the nuclear missile used by the U.S.A in the second world war. Now, after the pass of more than 60 years, the cities of Japan are still suffering from the effects of these weapons. The second world war had ended with this tragedy. Unfortunately, the dispute for the authority and the power is still going on between countries, and the power nowadays is compared by how far the country's nuclear energy is. Nowadays, humans have become very cheap. People who are responsible for the safety of their countries are the same who cause death to other people in other countries. It is as if their people are much expensive than those of other countries. It seems in their thoughts that wars are the only solution. It has become a conflict between people to develop their nuclear weapons to be more threatening to other countries. Iran is now threatening Israel that it is concentrating all its nuclear weapons on Israel and that it will destroy it in any minute. Is it true that there will be a coming war between Iran with the help of Hezbollah and Israel with the help of U.S.A . Will it

end up between these 4 countries , or are there some countries going to be involved in such a war? No one actually knows. By all means, wars are sort of destruction. Starting from the economic lost, humans lost , and even land lost. Politics and petrol, could these two methods be causes for all of these destructions and corruptions. Would they really lead to a nuclear war, or are there other hidden reasons? I once thought that humans are developing, but unfortunately, they are developing to the worth. There greediness is forcing them to kill their heart, and just think about their needs. Where is the world heading? Is life going to continue being like this? No place except for the strong. I hope that someday, humans will be much expensive than weapons , and that peace could spread all over the world, without any mean of destruction, so that people could lead a better life in their future lives.


Mohamed 38 Revised Edition of an analysis

Discovering Me Why do I play basketball? Is it because I think myself talented? Or is it because I am tall. Do I really know how to play basketball? What do people think about me while I am playing. Do they see me Lebron James , Or do they see me as an amateur? Of course I am an amateur compared with players like those of the NBA. How could I compare myself to people flying in the air. They keep practicing more than 8 hours per day, while I only practice half an hour per day. Of course there won't be any comparison. Another question that I keep asking myself why do I like postponing all my work to the last minute. Is that because I am a lazy person, or is it because I don't respect time. Am I a last minute person? Or do I just forget about important work. For sure this is because I am a lazy person, but how to overcome such laziness. It is like a disease that might destroy my life. I really don't know. It is just things that I do without even thinking. Hope I find a solution soon. Getting nervous, Is getting nervous on someone that you love can be justified? Why do I get nervous on people that I love and appreciate. I think that this is because I am always afraid about them and I always put them in a higher place than all people, so the issue is that I don't accept their failure. But, why don't I accept their failure? Maybe because I don't accept failure on myself? But what is the relation? I think that I act with people that I love as if they are part of me, and this is why I always want them to succeed in their lives. A Fuzzy question that I always ask to myself is , why am I the only person in my friends that don't drink beer or cigarettes. Do I really think that they are wrong habits , or do I want to be special, and that people will think that I have my own perspectives, or is it because I'm a basketball player and I don't want to destroy my health? I think that this is because: First of all my religion warned me from drinking bear and destroying my life with stuff like cigarettes, also

I know that they are wrong habits that will destroy my health, so it's useless doing things that have no benefits, but all harms. What do my friends think about me? Do they really love me, or are they just pretending that they love me. But, why should they pretend so, I got nothing that I could afford to them except being a good friend and loyal. For sure I am wrong, My friends love me because I am always beside them in their sad moments before their happiness. Still, why am I always beside them. Maybe because I know that they are always beside me and that they are loyal to me, or is it because they are my childhood friends that I treat them now as my brothers. I think for both. What do I think of myself? Am I really that sexy man that women like ? Or am I just an ordinary man that women don't care about. Of course I am the sexy guy that all women want. I am tall and in shape, what else should women want from a Man except a sexy body and being tall. But, why don't I like being involved in any sort of relation or why don't I like going on any type of dating. Is it because I am afraid of acting in an embarrassing way in front of women , or is it because I don't have confidence in myself. No way, For sure this is because I got a sister that I don't accept her going for a date, so I won't accept anything on people's daughters that I will never accept on my sister or my daughter when I am a father. This is because of my religion that forbids relations between non-married men and women. Discovering myself was a very important task that all people should try to do , so that they could overcome their weak points, make their strong points even more stronger, and even they could change their whole lives and lead a better life full of success. Hope that everybody keep on analyzing their thoughts and their actions and try to be better people in their future lives.
