Argumentative Essay On Stereotyping
Racial Stereotypes As a little girl, I was ashamed to be Indian. This was due to all the negative
stereotypes surrounding my race. In my childhood, I heard people say Indians were smelly,
stingy, and stuck up (alliteration). In fear of being teased and misjudged, I tried to be as "normal" as
possible to make everyone forget that I was Indian (pathos). As I grew older, I learned to be proud of
who I am, but disregarding stereotypes is still a challenge. I am sure everyone in this room has been
affected by racial stereotypes before and believe me, I know what you are going through (ethos).
You may think that only bigoted and prejudiced people used stereotypes, however, recent studies
have shown that everyone categorizes people on a daily basis without even realizing it. Most
people think stereotypes are just jokes, yet research proves that stereotypes have serious negative
effects. People should stop stereotyping because stereotypes cause "stereotype threats", create social
division, and lead to racism (parallelism). The first effect of stereotyping is a phenomenon known as
"stereotype threat" that occurs in a situation where a person is in fear of unintentionally confirming a
negative stereotype. Several studies have been conducted to discover the effects of stereotype
threats. For example, I discovered that Toni Schmader, an assistant professor of the UA psychology
department, and Michael Johns, a UA graduate (ethos), conducted studies that showed, "college
women score lower on tests of mathematical ability, and Hispanic students might score lower on tests
of intelligence, not because they have less ability, but because reminders of negative stereotypes
temporarily decrease their 'working memory capacity' (UA News Services, "Exploring the Negative
Consequences of Stereotyping", UANews.Arizona.edu)." This demonstrates that the students did not
do worse on the test due to their lack of skills, but rather due to negative stereotypes. In a similar
study by professors Claude Steele and Joshua Aronson, African American and White college students
took the same intelligence test under two conditions. In the stereotype threat condition the students
were told the test would evaluate their intelligence, and in the

Argumentative Essay On Plagiarism
Bloemker
If you were asked to picture a plagiarist, what would be the first image to pop into your head?
Would you think of someone lazy, trying to get through with little effort, purposely taking the words
and thoughts of others and hoping to pass them off as their own undetected? Would you picture a
hard working student, doing their best but forgetting to properly document their sources? Or would
you think of someone like a politician, an author, or a journalist who borrowed ideas from others
without crediting them? It does not matter which one you imagined because these are all examples of
plagiarism. What exactly is plagiarism? As students, most have heard about it and have been
cautioned by their instructors to be aware of and avoid plagiarism. But how many people
understand what plagiarism actually consists of? How many know how to avoid plagiarism in
their individual writings? The best way to avoid plagiarism is to be mindful of each aspect of what
would be considered plagiarized work and to know how to properly cite the ideas of others. To
simply define plagiarism would be to say that it is stealing the ideas or words of another and passing
it off as your own ("Plagiarize"). According to the Merriam–Webster Dictionary, "plagiarize comes
from the Latin plagiarius "kidnapper." This word, derived from the Latin plaga (a net used by
hunters to catch game,) extended its meaning in Latin to include a person who stole the words,
rather than the children, of

Argumentative Essay On Global Warming
In 1987, the average global surface temperature was 0.33 degrees Celsius. In 2016, the average
global surface temperature was 0.99 degrees Celsius. NASA states that "sixteen of the seventeen
warmest years in the 136–year record all have occurred since 2001, with the exception of 1998."
NASA also states that 2016 is the warmest year on record. Global warming is becoming a bigger
issue as time progresses. Global warming has to potential to cause devastating effects on Earth.
Many people, though, don't believe in global warming. As defined by dictionary.com, global
warming is "a gradual increase in the overall temperature of the Earth's atmosphere generally
attributed to the greenhouse effect caused by increased levels of carbon dioxide,
chlorofluorocarbons, and other pollutants." Global warming is caused by expansion of the
"greenhouse effect." NASA states the greenhouse effect is "warming that results when the
atmosphere traps heat radiating from Earth toward space." Some gasses that cause the greenhouse
effect include water vapor, carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, and chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs).
The main gas contributing to the greenhouse effect is carbon dioxide. The Union of Concerned
Scientists writes, "We are overloading our atmosphere with carbon dioxide, which traps heat and
steadily drives up the planet's temperature." Humans are the main cause of this increase in carbon
dioxide. The main source of the excess carbon is from humans burning fossil fuels. The

Argumentative Essay On Memorials
Memorializing events in the history of the world for any purpose has it's positives as well as the
negatives. Ranging from a memorial of a popular United States president from a loved one of a
family, memorials have generally served as a purpose of remembrance from the past of said event.
The purpose of the memorial is usually associated with a positive, uplifting feeling towards the
deceased individual or past event. While this is more or less simply defining what memorials are
for, what is the meaning behind them? What purpose do they serve besides the simplicity that they
are? Important messages from a few varied sources will give a differing viewpoint on memorials
from one to another. The first thought of memorials is the simple, generic...show more content...
Memorials are meant to be striking in the sense that you will notice said memorial and donate some
attention to it. The views of these see this attention capturing as exceedingly high for some purposes.
Some memorials are outstanding in their craftsmanship and aesthetics. This makes people wonder
what could be lurking inside the memorial, or what is near that memorial. What we've got here is a
formula, striking looks of the monument is almost guaranteed to attract some form of attention.
According to Source G, the analogy of tainting the planet with specific memorials are ridiculous, "I
imagined taking a knife and cutting into the earth, opening it up, an initial violence and pain that in
time would heal. The grass would grow back, but the initial cut would remain a pure flat surface in
the earth with a polished, mirrored surface, much like the surface on a geode when you cut it and
polish the edge. The need for the names to be on the memorial would become the memorial; there
was no need to embellish the design further. The people and their names would allow everyone to
respond and remember. The ideals of such nonsensical placements of the memorials are just irritable

I was a little worried when I signed up to take this course, since it counted as a college credit. Even though I was worried about taking this course, but I am thankful that I did. The main reason behind my decision to take this course is because I thought it would better prepare me for college. This argumentative essay was one of the hardest essay that I have written. I have never written in this style before this essay. Even though, I have never been the best writer, I have always got good grades.

Granite, there were parts of my essay where I successfully integrated quotes within my voice, but for the most part that was my weakest area. For example of one of my better integrated quotes, in my third paragraph when I say, "Today, consumers rely on social media for everything, whether it is communicating with old friends, finding new friends, shopping, researching, and staying informed with the latest news. Daniel adds that, "'Americans who take part in political activities on social networking sites also tend to be highly active in other areas of political or civic life'" (29), which insinuates that people rely on social media more today than we have in the past". This was one of my better examples because I further explain and analyze the quote in my voice instead of just ending the sentence after the quote. One of my poor examples is, "Many people who suffer from depression care a lot about what others think about them. That is why many of those people tend to turn to social media as an outlet to express their feelings". I made a bold statement and did not back up what I said with my voice I just ended that sentence and moved on. Instead of moving on I should have explained it further and told them why people tend to turn to social media to express their feelings.

It is of much greater importance to be able to find information quickly, organize that information, analyze and understand the main ideas, put different pieces of information together (synthesize), and create new information. Together these skills make what we call information management and innovation, the skills which are most desired in the business world. Most people in the world believe that education is about remembering things to take tests which measure one's performance against other people who have studied the same information. However, this idea no longer matches the reality of the modern world in which knowledge is less important than creativity and deep understanding. To be successful in the age of technology, education must focus on helping students gain information management and innovation skills. Sources Cited Gardner, H. (1999).

If you have siblings you will have to share everything, so you get less; but you also get less of the bad things. Siblings can support and comfort each in times of trouble. The elder siblings learn to care for the younger ones and the younger ones learn to respect their elder siblings and have someone to look up to besides their parents. You are more balanced person than an only child. Another advantage of having siblings is that your parents' attention is divided among your siblings. As a result, there is less pressure on you to perform well, be it academically or in other areas. Having siblings also means that you have companionship, the joy of caring and sharing, and security.

  • 14. Argumentative Essay On Sexual Abuse Imagine being robbed of your innocence in a matter of seconds. Imagine not being able to speak out due to threats and fear of seeking help and not being taken seriously. Troubling, is it not? Sexual abuse has always been a problem in society that can affect anyone. Sexual abuse brings along many negative outcomes; however, throughout the years, sexual abuse has been a factor that has always been ignored. Even though sexual abuse has had many attempts to be avoided in various environments, all have failed. Many individuals tend to misinterpret sexual abuse and it's true delicacy. Although sexual abuse is often a violation against women, both genders can be victims. Victims can succumb to mental disorders, including PTSD and depression, which can initiate an unhealthy lifestyle to the point of triggering a contemplation of suicide. Nevertheless, sexual abuse has always been biased towards women relative to men for as long as we can remember. Considering the fact that sexual abuse can occur to both genders, it is mostly known to victimize women. One of the most common environments for sexual abuse to take place is in academic domains. In the view of society, men are above women; in consequence, women portray a weak image, hence making easier casualties of sexual abuse in the educational field. Due to the fact that students may need guidance to better excel in their career, some professors begin treating it as an opportunity to gain sexual access from the student. To better illustrate the idea that sexual abuse makes its way through into academic environments, take the word from the victims themselves. "I was naive enough to think that we would talk about Wittgenstein, but after he flopped over me a few times, telling me that I had to have sex with him... I made my escape" (Whitley 39). Moreover, another victim said "I couldn't say 'no' because he would have responded with rage and revenge. He would have ruined my career"(Whitley 39). In both cases, these women were attacked by the professors for being of lesser status; they were manipulated to remain silent by fear, threats, and their dependence on the professor for academic help.

The art of argumentation is not an easy skill to acquire. Many people might think that if one simply has an opinion, one can argue it successfully, and these folks are always surprised when others don't agree with them because their logic seems so correct.

Inductive logic arrives at likely conclusions by counting up evidence, while deductive logic arrives at necessary conclusions by examining the logical meanings of statements. According to Purdue University English Profession Neil Gill, deductive arguments can be grouped into two categories: A Rogerian argument considers several viewpoints and selects the best one, whereas a Toulmin argument presents a single, linear argument (i.e., A therefore B) in support of a position. Fallacious Fallacious arguments are logical–seeming arguments that are not valid. Unlike logical arguments, fallacious arguments do not arrive at valid conclusions or inferences. There are literally dozens of fallacious arguments you can commit; a fallacious argument style is one that commits one or more fallacies frequently. For example, if a person in an argument persistently says, "the economy went up this year, therefore the party in power caused the economy to improve," that person is engaging in the "post hoc ergo propter hoc" fallacy, an invalid argument of the form "x happened, y happened, therefore x caused y."

Facebook jealousy is bad, for that it causes so many problems and arguments with your partner which in term can lead us to even consider cheating. Cheating is another negative implication from using too much Facebook. By using Facebook in a unhealthy matter it increases the chance of someone cheating, it definitely increases the odds of a couple to cheat on each other, because Facebook has a private message feature allowing anybody to send a message where just the two people are the only ones that can read and see the messages. To some extent if the person doesn't want their partner to find out they're cheating, they will even create a fake profile to reach out to the person. A great example of this is one of my uncles actually cheated on his girlfriend using the same tactic I talked about. He used the private message feature which allowed him to keep his affair a secret from his girlfriend. While his girlfriend thought he was at work, he was actually cheating on another girl. Low–self–esteem is another negative implication, that can happen to us for using Facebook for such a long time! By using Facebook too much our self–esteem will drop, because we'll always be thinking about what other's think about our profile, posts, updates, and also being concerned about having the perfect life, and getting likes.

  • 17. Argumentative Essay On Renewable Energy Renewability For nearly everyone on earth, fossil fuels are a part of our daily lives. Some of the more obvious places to find petroleum products would be gas and diesel in cars and trucks, but it is in more than just your tank. Without fossil fuels, we would not have things such as plastic to make a wide variety of things such as tires, kayaks, or even computers. The question remains, do we need fossil fuels? In this day and age, we have new energy sources that could be used to power our homes and transportation. Wind and solar power are used all over the world, but are still used far less than fossil fuels. Most would say it's not reliable or it doesn't make any profit. While both statements are true, it doesn't mean we can't make a better future using renewable energy. In fact, the only reason we don't use renewables for everything is that we don't want to change. The hard truth is we need to change. Fossil fuels are great right now, but if we run out, humanity must have another source of energy. Renewable energy may seem like a daunting task, but the benefits to humanity could be incredible. Public uses of renewable energy range from transportation all the way to heating and cooling.

  • 18. Argumentative Essay On Climate Change Climate change can be traced down to since the mid–1800s, when the industrial revolution first started taking place all around the world. Lives of human and animal species have been negatively affected since then, with events such as natural disasters, the melting of ice in polar regions, and change in weather and living conditions. Climate change in polar regions, in particular, has faced the most damage compared to any other region because of its location in regard to the sun. Climate change holds many different views and opinions about the effects, and even the existence itself, but evidence is clear and unmistakable in global ramifications and local impact in polar regions. "...Climate change [is] the 'greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people'", skeptics like Senator Inhofe of Oklahoma like to say. Climate change is change in climate patterns due to an increase in carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases produced by certain human activity. According to the National Snow and Ice Data Center, data taken by satellite has shown that the Arctic cover has decreased by 30% over the past 30 years, and this change, which also include change in sea ice and permafrost, in artic weather and climate is caused by humans. Although numerous scientists have confirmed the legitimacy of climate change, there are different views on whether climate change is real or not. Government officials like Senator Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma or Senator Marco Rubio of Florida have explicitly stated that they do not believe climate change is neither real, nor caused by humans (Tom McCarthy, 2014). On the other hand, mainstream media and other media outlets, such as The Independent and The Economist, have reported their findings of climate change and its legitimacy. The Independent (Conner, S. 2011) reported that records of these changes were taken by military submarines, land measurements, and satellite data to prove ice in polar regions are melting faster and faster. Satellites have tracked sea ice since the 1970s and by nuclear submarines since the Cold War, according to Peter Wadhams of Cambridge University and it was predicted that by September 2015, there would be no more sea ice.

  • 20. Argumentative Essay On Organ Donation The medical industry had been achieving more in the stage of medical advancements, though they are still in the early phase. Artificial organs have been one of those achievements. Although they have achieved such, artificial organs are not perfect. Most doctors as well as patients would prefer to replace a dying organ with a compatible human organ, rather than with an artificial or animal organ. Yet due to a there being less organs donated than recipients, artificial and animal organs are becoming more common in transplants. Most of this issue is because people are unaware of how organ donation works, the organs that can be donated, how many people are in need, and the advancements that have happened in the field. Organ donation saves hundreds of lives every year, but many lives are recklessly lost due to a shortage of organ donors. Organ donation is the medical process of voluntarily giving one or more of your organs to someone in need, whether it be someone you know or a stranger. It is strictly voluntary, no payment for the organ/s will be given from the hospital, the recipient or the recipients family. In organ donation, there are two types of donations, living organ donation and deceased organ donation. Living organ donation is when the donor is still alive and voluntarily chooses to donate one or more of their organs to a recipient(s) in need. Whereas, deceased organ donation happens after the donor has passed away, and consent was given to be able to donate their organs. In living organ donation, before a donor can donate there are tests administrated to see if the donor is suitable to donate. There is an evaluation of the donor done to make sure that no physical, psychological, or emotional harm will happen to them before, during, or after donating (Organdonor.gov U.S. Government Information on Organ Donation and Transplantation). In living organ donation, most donations happen within family members, or between close friends, although there are stranger donations that happen. Living organ donors should generally be physically fit, in good health, and between the ages of 18 to 60. They should not have a history or have diabetes, cancer, high blood pressure, kidney disease, or heart disease Get more content on HelpWriting.net
