For novice biologists, taxonomy and phylogenetics are difficult concepts to understand and keep separate. This confusion is made worse because modern taxonomic methods make use of molecular tools. Write an essay that contrasts taxonomy to phylogenetics and explains how both disciplines are important to our understanding of species and evolution. Your essay should include a description of taxonomy and phylogenetics, as well as a detailed explanation about how information is represented in a phylogenetic tree or a cladogram. It may help you to frame your argument if you start by constructing a paragraph for yourself that says: Before reading my paper, my reader will think X. After reading my paper, my reader will think y. Your summary should be typed in Times New Roman 12-pt font and be one-and-a-half-spaced with 1 margins.
For this assignment, write 2-pages in an op-ed style on the topic of COVID. I have loaded two files COVID 1 and COVID 2 in FILES that have a number of news stories on the topic. Pick one of these — or a COVID-related topic of your choice and write a short argument. Make certain you have a strong claim and strong supporting evidence. Think of kairotic moments (timeliness) and pick the best topic. In other words, what about COVID is in the news currently? The legality of masks? Back to school and COVID? The economy and COVID? This is due on SUNDAY. It does not need a bibliography.
In your Report, you will address the following issues: (a) What are the key issues of the public policy debate? (b) What is the available research evidence? (c) What are the range of proposals or solutions? (d) Which solution(s) do you favor and why?
For your final essay, you will write an eight-to ten-page argument essay. In addition, you will submit a Works Cited page that includes AT LEAST SIX sources. In your essay, you will demonstrate elements of persuasive writing that we have covered in class. Think the four pillars of argument, rhetorical analysis, rhetorical situation, deductive and inductive reasoning, Toulmin logic, and Rogerian argument. Thats not to say you have to incorporate all elements. That would be messy and totally ineffective. But consider what we learned about persuasive writing and how you might use what you learned to advance your argument? Of course, be careful to avoid logical fallacies. **INCLUDE THESE FIVE SOURCES AND ANOTHER OF YOUR CHOICE** Sen, Amartya. Universal Healthcare: the Affordable Dream.
