    Pollution and How It Effects the Ocean
    What Plastic Does to the Ocean.

    When you think of the ocean what do you think of? Do you think of the cool water, the soft sand or perhaps the warm sun? But did you know that under that beautiful sunset on the water, is all of your trash? Trash is the main cause of extinction to the population of whales and sea turtles, can cause human diseases, and is lessening our amount of clean water.

    The ocean has more plastic then marine life. There is an estimate of about 150 million tons. Every year 8 million tons is added annually, rising the amount of plastic each year. This is a problem because plastic cannot disintegrate, but only breaks up into little pieces. That means plastic can be floating around the ocean for hundreds of years before it can break up.
    Each year about 100,000 sea animals die as a result of plastic being dumped into the ocean each year. Marine animals often mistake this plastic as food. For example, Sea turtles eat plastic bags because they resemble jellyfish. Plastic can also get stuck in a whale’s throat and they choke to death or the digestive system will get too full of garbage, and the animal dies.

    Ocean pollution also has an effect on human life as well. Diseases such as, Kidney Damage and Nerve Damage have been linked to swimming in a beach that is polluted or by drinking polluted water. This is why so many beaches are closed, and why purified water is more expensive. Because of this, people will drink out of polluted waters and get diseases or possibly die.

    The oceans are getting more and more polluted with plastics. As a result, it is killing more marine life, causing us diseases, and ultimately starving us. This is why we need to take better care of our oceans by reusing and\or recycling plastics, bags, jars, and bottles so they do not end up in the ocean.

  18. The text has examples of description, problem/solution, and compare/contrast, but the overall structure is cause/effect. The author shows how humans and animals survive and even achieve great things, even though their bodies are not perfect. Their imperfections cause them to adapt in order to survive.

  21. Number 1 response:

    The steps that experience readers can use to analyze conflicting viewpoints and information on the same topic is trying to understand both viewpoints, do their own research and then look at the conflicting viewpoints on the topic again to see their reasoning and evidence more clearly and so they can understand their opinions. It is very important for readers to recognize and evaluate conflicting information because, the advantage of this is they won’t have much of an opinion when they must write and informative response because they’ve seen both sides and both arguments and evidence included. Some examples of this helping I will pull from ‘’Say no to genetically engineered salmon’’ and ‘’Genetically modified salmon can feed the world’’ (both from CNN I will leave the links in the bibliography). Let’s say for example you only read ‘’Say not to genetically engineered salmon’’ your information will be one sided and you shall have no choice but to write information about one point of view on the topic making you more likely to mistakenly write and opiniated response whilst if you read both ‘’Say no to genetically engineered salmon’’ AND ‘Genetically modified salmon can feed the world’’ you will not only have an easier time to write a non opiniated response but you will have more evidence and research on the topic from two sources on the same topic.

    Number 2 response:
    It matter when two authors interpret facts differently because its more informational when two people have different information about the same subject and you can get the topics on both sides of the argument therefore not have an opiniated topic on the matter and being able to write an informative response or essay. Yonathan Zohar believes genetically modified salmon can be of good use while one the other hand Rick Moonen believes otherwise. Zohar’s reasoning for his opinion is that since a great amount of people are going to eat fish more often because of the health benefits workers are spending more time and money to catch more fish, causing the factory’s to package them to overfill and causing a handful of fish that used to be extremely common to now barely seen in the wild so in solution he want to genetically modify salmon so more people can be feed and less resources are wasted. Moonen’s reasoning for his opinion is that genetically modified food in general is bad for you and he believes its also a tactic to make already big companies more profit.

  22. Number 3 response:
    If you include a conflicting point of view and evidence in an argument it can make it more persuasive because lets say you just heard someone say something like ‘’ I think that we should use solar panels from now on anywhere and always no matter what’’, its not much evidence r much of an opinion even but its still a claim. Imagine right after somebody has an opposite opinion like ‘’yes I believe solar panels are more healthy but they’re expensive and if its night time we cant have electricity and if the sun goes dark somehow we will have no power and no way to have light or entertainment or contact’’ its significantly more persuasive because it provides evidence which makes their argument more causing to believe since it seems they know what they are talking about. The effect that the conflicting sides have evidence and fair reasoning can have on readers for people listening can be the fact that they have more information on the topic, that they can understand where both sides are coming from and for readers their response will be a more understanding and informational one and listeners will have more info on the topic like readers. The examples I will pull from ‘’Genetically modified salmon can feed the world’’. Imagine if Yonathon Zohar (the author of ‘genetically modified salmon can feed the world’) just blatantly said I think genetically modified salmon is good for us, no one, would be persuaded to be towards his belief so he put evidence, proof, and reasoning to his viewpoint for example; ‘’ Fish species that used to be plentiful, such as cod, plaice, haddock and others, are now rare in the wild. The king of the oceans, the giant bluefin tuna, is now near the point of no return, its stocks dropping precipitously in the past decade alone.’’ Stating that we are losing our amount of fish because the massive amount of fish we are fishing for food when we can just genetically modify it.

  31. Analyzing info text portfolio

    “Hang on, Dolly!” is a short story written by Sally Lee. The central idea is to never give up and do not let fear stop you from achieving a goal. The information in the text is effective in informing the reader about the central idea because it provides detailed examples of not giving up. For example, Dolly was nervous to fly in a hot air balloon, but she did not look down on herself and succeeded in parachuting! “High-Flying Hero!” is also a short story and the author is Christy Mihaly. The central idea is that we can overcome and push through in tough times. The author effectively informs the reader about the central idea by providing details that explain the concept of pushing through pain. In this story, Chen the pigeon was shot in his chest and fell in the middle of the war, but he was able to work through the pain and fly to the base.
    The author’s text structure and explicit details were effective in informing me as the reader about the topic. These stories gave great details and points that were easy to understand and helped me relate to the characters. I relate to Dolly and how she did not give up when I was in a spelling competition. I was nervous to be on stage with the whole school and parents watching me as I spelled out words, but I did not let my nerves stop me. I tried my hardest and I told myself not to be nervous and I placed 5th out of 30 people! I was unable to relate to the character, Chen, however the story has great enough detail that I may be able to use in the future.

    The point of view of Sally Lee is more effective than Christy Mihaly’s story because she provides more events, more detail, and more points that lead to the topic and central idea. Christy Mihaly on the other hand has less events yet has enough detail to explain the topic. The part of “High-Flying Hero!” where Chen got shot and plunged out of sight, it does not explain what happened next. The author could have done a better job thoroughly explaining this event. In comparison, in Sally’s story “Hang on, Dolly!” She explained the events in a way for me to understand what was happening in the events. Both stories are effective in informing about the topic, but Sally Lee’s story is more effective than Christy Mihaly’s Story.

    DO NOT copy and paste otherwise the teacher will find out. Change a few words/sentences.

  34. Guys, you cannot a portfolio or essay questions because the teachers would find out you cheating because it doesn't sound like a student's writing. Slowly, your teacher will find out about the "using google thing" if you want to get a good grade on the portfolio ASK YOUR LEARNING COACH AND LOOK AT THE SOURCES GIVEN TO YOU.
