Expository Essay

You will use the essay question prompt that appears when you click to start the quiz and follow these instructions: Essay Requirements: A note on the final: The final is going to be a 4-5-page double space essay (10 to 12 Times New Romans or Arial Font), MLA Format, Works Cited page (not part of the 4-5 pages). There is no time limit and an unlimited number of attempts for the essay.   Please note the score will show 0 on the quiz until I go in and grade the essay.  Requirements/Tips for a successful essay: 1. You must explain, define key terms when explaining a process.  You will not be able to just write a sentence like this: Precipitation is the 3rd stage in the Hydrological Cycle.  One example of a correct way to write this sentence would be: Precipitation is when water molecules fall to the ground due to their heaviness and it is the third stage in the Hydrological Cycle.  2. You must use a map to explain each of the processes.   Example of an incorrect sentence: Areas like Ireland receive lots of rain.  One example of a correct way to write this sentence would be: Precipitation varies around the world, as we can see according to the Annual Precipitation and Ocean Currents map in the atlas on page 36-37.  This map shows that area Chili receives about 80 inches of rain a year along the coast, and average 40 inches more inland.   3. Organization/Clear concepts: Does your essay flow correctly?  Are you able to show me through your essay that you clearly understand the processes and key terms you learned in class? 4. Length: The length of the essay is not a suggestion, it is the length that it will take to discuss all the information in a complete and thoughtful manner. 5. MLA Format means you must have a complete well-organized essay and cite your sources.  This means your essay should include an introduction, conclusion, thesis statement.     Flag this Question Question 11,500 pts Essay Directions: Select a film that you wish to watch that is filmed in the outdoors or revolves around a physical geographical event.  This film can be fiction, fun, or historical, it is your choice. Some examples of films are Maverick, The Perfect Storm, Volcano, Twister, Lion King, etc. DO NOT use San Andreas or Perfect Storm!   If you are not sure, just ask me!  Essay Prompt:  Write a 4-5 pages double-space MLA Format Essay (10 or 12pt font) answering the following questions:                      a.) What physical processes do you see (example: is it raining? What process is that?)                       b.) Natural Hazards c.) Which climate is being shown (desert, mid-latitude)                     d.) Include maps from your atlas to show where this is occurring or maps that show statistics of the physical processor climate.   -Please note, this is NOT a summary of the movie!  You need to discuss key terms and processes from class and include maps from the atlas! Upload essay in Word or PDF format ONLY!  I will not accept any other format for this assignment, if you send in another format then you will receive a 0 on this assignment.                             The final is a 4-5-page double space essay.  It will not be a multiple-choice like the quizzes earlier in class.  What I am looking for in the final:  I will be looking for use of key terms, see examples in the final instructions.  It is possible you will not use all key terms from class to properly answer the essay prompt, it is important to thoroughly discuss processes that relate to the essay question.  The second requirement that I will be looking for is map examples.  Maps should be used to support your essay throughout, see examples in the instructions for the final.  Lastly, be sure to follow the format specifications on the final instructions page.  Important Tips on how to study for the final: This list of terms and processes is not a list for you to memorize.  The list is here to help you know what process you are expected to understand after taking this class.  You should be able to use these terms or refer to these terms in reference to the process they are a part of, and locate a map to help explain this process (i.e. Equinox happens at what time of year?): Once the essay question is posted, please let me know if you have any questions.  I am happy to help you with this final, I will not give you an answer, but I will give you guidance.   Terms and Processes: Cartography latitude longitude equinox solstice Geographic Information Systems Global Positioning System (GPS) Projection Title Scale Legend Daylength revolution Circle of Illumination Insolation Subsolar Point Rotation Axis Primer Meridian Tropic of Cancer Tropic of Capricorn Biosphere Hydrosphere Lithosphere Atmosphere   Be familiar with these terms, not just definition, but also how they relate to class topics (I.E. Equinox happens at what time of year?):  latitude longitude solstice Daylength Insolation Subsolar Point Rotation Solar Radiation Absorption Conduction Convection Albedo Reflection Refraction diffuse radiation scatter Greenhouse Effect Urban Heat Island Energy Balance Net Radiation Normal Lapse Rate Shortwave Radiation Longwave radiation Earth’s Energy budget Be able to explain each stage of the Hydrological Cycle that is occurring in this image.  Remember there are more key terms than just the stages.  This includes groundwater, filtration, water budget.

Food Chain Biotic Abiotic Climate Classification Biodiversity  Final Details A note on the final: The final is going to be a 4-5-page double space essay on everything learned in class.  I do not have the prompt question yet, but you will have all week to work on the essay. This is what I am looking for in your essay, and no exceptions will be made: 1. You must explain, define key terms when explaining a process.  You will not be able to just write a sentence like this: Precipitation is the 3rd stage in the Hydrological Cycle.  One example of a correct way to write this sentence would be: Precipitation is when water molecules fall to the ground due to their heaviness and it is the third stage in the Hydrological Cycle.  2.
