Answer:

The 3 big components of a Persuasive Essay are the Introduction, Body, and Conclusion. Each of these has sub-sections to them Introduction: 1. Hook: This is a sentence at the beginning of the paper that is interesting to the reader. The purpose of this is to make the reader interested in the topic to continue reading. 2. Brief Background: This is some general, cited, information about the topic at hand. The purpose of this is to briefly introduce the topic, but not give away too much so the reader continues on. 3. Thesis statement: A concise, very straightforward, and understandable statement that explains your argument and opinion of the topic. This sentence has a clear stance. The purpose of this is to show the reader that you have a strong stance on the issue and plan to explain why you feel that way. Body: This is where you will give 3-5 reasons and evidence-based opinions as to why you feel the way that you do. Each of the points should have: 1. Topic Sentence: Gives the main idea of the point you are trying to make. The point of this is to give the reader a clear idea of what you will be covering in that particular paragraph. 2. Evidence: Giving informative arguments based on authoritative evidence is the key to the whole essay. Evidence-based reasoning is the easiest way to win over a reader. This helps because it makes it harder for the reader to completely dismiss your claim when you have hard data to back up your points. 3. Connection: Connect your evidence to the point you are trying to make. This is important because it summarizes and brings to a head the entire point of that weapon in your arsenal. Conclusion: 1: Wrap up/Summary: Sum up the main points of the argument and briefly list the points from your topic sentences. This refreshes the reader on all of the main points. 2: Perspective: Put your point of view into a world perspective and give the reader the big picture of what you are trying to illustrate. This allows the reader to see this as a real-world application and what it means for us going forward. 3. Concluding Sentence: Something catchy, maybe link it back to your hook in the beginning. This shows the reader that you had a plan from the beginning and that you executed that plan in order to give your stance strongly.

Question:

Summarize the main ideas of Natural Selection and give a detailed example of this phenomenon.

Answer:

The main ideas of Natural Selection: 1. The reproductive success of individual organisms varies from one to the other because they have different heritable traits. These traits emerge as individuals interact with the environment. The phenomenon itself involves populations of organisms, not individuals. 2. Natural Selection can increase or decrease the number of heritable traits that vary in a population of organisms. 3. Natural Selection may result in an adaptation to new conditions for species going through environmental changes or migration to a new environment. 4. Darwin formed his ideas by seeing that individuals with inherited traits that are best suited for their environment are more likely to survive. Over many generations, more individuals will have those advantageous traits. The environment is "selecting" and propagating the beneficial traits. An example of this Is the Peppered Moth during the Industrial Revolution. In England at this time, the trees were covered with two colors of moths: darkly/black moths, and peppered/black and white moths. In normal times, the peppered moths with black and white spots blended in with the trees they lived on. This caused the black moths to stand out and be eaten more by predators. The environment gives an advantage to the peppered moths. This caused those peppered moths to proliferate in the colony. There was, however, a sudden environmental change in which caused the pollution from the local industries to cause the trees to lose their peppered color and turned them completely black. This led to a switch in the environment which led to a switch in advantageous traits. Now, the black moth was being preyed upon less and the peppered moth was being eaten at a higher rate. Nature, because of a change in environment, selected for a trait different from the original landscape.
