Transcribe, revise and upload your critical lens focus write, completed on 22 September, having the title, “The only disability in life is a bad attitude.”

Pay close attention to subject and predicate agreement in your sentences.  Singular subjects require singular predicates; plural subjects require plural predicates.

Remember, the critical lens requires these steps:
1. paraphrase the prompt (the quotation);
2. interpret the quotation (what does the author mean?);
3. explicitly agree or disagree (not both);
4. explain why you agree/disagree using textual evidence.

    A bad attitude is the thing that holds you back.
    This quote to me means that if you have a bad attitude you won’t get anywheres in life.
    I agree with the quote, “The only disability in life is a bad attitude”.
    I agree with the quote because people don’t have to have to act like that and yet they choose to and that bad decision won’t get them anywhere with that type of attitude.

    You have paraphrased, interpreted, agreed with, and explained the prompt very well. And in your own voice. It is true, honest, and well written.
    The period ( . ) at the end of the first paragraph belongs inside the quotation marks (for example: “. . . a bad attitude.”)
    Good insight and clear communication of your belief.

    Your voice is clear and strong in this critical lens response, and is a great beginning for an “I Believe” essay.You actually seem to have the beginning of an introductor paragraph.
    What is your thesis/claim/main idea? Your support/details? Your conclusion? Can you find them in what you have written?
    Good work!
