Subject: Writing

Question:

What are the basic steps to writing an effective persuasive essay?

Inactive
Gillian P.
Answer:

First, brainstorm to decide on a topic and supporting information around it. Then organize that information into an outline and write a thesis statement. Then you can start writing for real, and modifying the outline and collecting evidence as needed. The more drafts the better. The most important last step is to proofread your essay. Make sure to read it out loud, and ideally have someone else look over it too.

Answer:

They are both literary devices which serve to describe something by drawing a comparison. However they are difference since similes use "like" or "as" to make a comparison, whereas a metaphor does not and simply says something "is" something else.

Subject: Communication

Question:

"I hate how sloppy you are around the house" Is the above statement an I statement? Why or why not?

Answer:

No, even though it does start with "I" it is accusatory and does not focus on the subject's own feelings. A true I statement would be "I feel frustrated when my house is not tidy."
