Question:

What is an effective step-by-step method to edit an essay?

Answer:

Once you have completed a draft of your essay, you can take a series of steps to ensure that you have a strong, cohesive essay with a logical and natural flow of ideas. First is a high-level evaluation. This is the process by which you evaluate the overall structure of your essay. For example, a standard essay should contain a unique "hook" and a clearly stated thesis in the opening paragraph. The essay should also have a discernible structure and a strong concluding paragraph. If these criteria are not met, you should first go back and ensure that the overall structure of the essay and flow of ideas is strong. The next step is sentence-level improvements. This involves correcting grammatical mistakes and syntactical errors. Scan your essay for the following common errors: fragments, run-on sentences, inconsistent tense, and non-parallel sentence structure. Finally, read through your essay and attempt make your writing as clear as possible. One possible way to achieve this is to eliminate superfluous words and improve phrasing.

Answer:

Macro evolution refers to large scale evolutionary changes that occur over extended periods of time, such as the evolution of new species or groups. Micro evolution refers to the short-term, small scale genetic changes that occur in populations within single species. The same fundamental process of natural selection underlies both, with the time scale differentiating the two.
