A Neanderthal Perspective on Human Origins with Svante Pääbo – 2018

  a) You will be reading, listening and viewing YouTube videos of different issues and topics. There will be a number of questions assigned to voice your opinion about an issue. Each essay is at least 750 words with references (footnotes or citations through ENDNOTE). A PERSUASIVE ESSAY presents an argument or an opinion in an attempt to convince the reader to accept the writer’s point of view. Reading and reacting to the opinions of others helps shape readers’ beliefs about important issues, events, people, places, and things. b) YOU NEED to download ENDNOTE and use ENDNOTE to build your bibliography and collect references on your topic. This is a persuasive essay, and your arguments need to be supported with facts from primary sources. c) ESSAYS NEED TO BE WRITTEN FROM AN OUTLINE. See a format for your outline below. The Introduction should be one paragraph, highlighting the topic, main issues, and your central arguments. The next 3 to 4 paragraphs should outline your main points. The last paragraph should summarize your arguments or point of view on the issue. ONCE YOU HAVE WRITTEN YOUR ESSAY, CREATE AN INTERESTING TITLE THAT ATTRACTS YOUR READER. A persuasive essay should contain 2 to 3 main arguments for your opinion. Each argument should be supported by factual information (with references). The essay should be 5 to 7 paragraphs in length.
