How do I write a rhetorical analysis?
When we are writing a rhetorical analysis, the most important thing to remember is that we are analyzing the author's work. Be very careful of summarizing because it is easy to write a summary here instead of an analysis. First, remember some common rhetorical devices (ethos, logos, pathos). Which ones does the piece you are reading utilize? Does the author use those devices well? Do they use any strategy to convince readers that their point of view is right? From there, consider this: After reading the article, do you think the author made a strong or weak argument? Finally, you can begin building your thesis for the paper. What was the author's argument? Was it strong? How did they make it strong? A common thesis for this kind of paper would be: The author made a strong argument that ____ by using ethos, pathos, and logos throughout their piece.
In cats, the allele for short hair (H) is dominant to the allele for long hair (h). A heterozygous short-hair cat is crossed with a long-hair cat. What percentage of the offspring is expected to be heterozygous for hair length?
A heterozygous short-hair cat will have the alleles Hh. A long-hair cat is recessive, so it must have the alleles hh. If we cross, Hh with hh, we will get the following: h h H Hh Hh h hh hh In our question, we want to find the percentage of cats that are heterozygous for hair length. Remember, our heterozygous allele is Hh. It looks like 2 out of 4 in our Punnett Square are Hh. Therefore 50% of the offspring is expected to be heterozygous for hair length.
How can I write a strong thesis statement?
To write a strong thesis statement, you should identify the main point/argument/claim that you are making in your paper. Then, decide on the supporting details for the main claim. Consider your thesis to be the roadmap for the rest of your paper. Remember, your thesis should be something that someone else could argue against, but, with your supporting details, you will show why your argument is valid.
