Blog with two prompts
Each week, there will be two prompts requiring your response. Responses may be posted in one blog entry or two, but each response should be clearly titled. While blogging is more relaxed than formal essay writing, it requires a minimum word count (see individual instructions), good grammar, and correct spelling. It also requires APA documentation of sources when quoting or citing from a website or using any online source.Prompt #1: Choose from the following readings/topicsCharles Darwinâ€™s â€˜Natural Selectionâ€ (pp. 706-709) and Verlyn Klinkenborgâ€™s â€œDarwin at 200: The Ongoing Force of His Unconventional Ideaâ€ (pp. 711-714)Oliver Sachsâ€™ â€œAnybody Out Thereâ€ (pp. 742-745)Write a 500-word comparative essay on evolution and creationism. Search for two web sites, one promoting the idea of evolution, and one promoting creationism. Compare and contrast the approach of each site as well as the reliability and validity of the information. Consider the approach of each site, visitor comments, visual appearance, and professionalism of the site. Be sure to include reference list and a hyperlink within your text to the site. Prompt #2: In Rachel Carsonâ€™s â€œThe Obligation to Endureâ€ (pp. 669 â€“ 674), the author asserts that there is limited awareness of the threat to our environment, and we are in an era dominated by â€œindustry which [holds] the right to make a dollar at whatever costâ€ (674). In 300 words, respond to that assertion by sharing your position on the rights of business versus the needs of the community for safe land, water, and air. For further thought, consider reading McKibbenâ€™s â€œThe Environmental Issue from Hellâ€ (pp. 666-668) Requirements:Respond to two prompts with a minimum of 500 words for Prompt #1, and 300 words for Prompt #2Graphic, photo, hyperlink or other visual (required).Cite any sources used or quoted material.
