[Attached is the essay that I’ve already made.]———————————————The Assignment———————————————Writing Journal 10At this point, you should be thinking about a thesis statement for your argument essay, and certainly by the end of this week, you should have a good idea of what that is. The discussion board was designed to help you to vet your thesis to make sure you are on the right track and to help you get started looking for sources. PART 1For this week’s Writing Journal, I’d like you to consider the importance of finding common ground. Why, in constructing an argument, would it be a good idea for you to find common ground with those who may disagree with you? Why is it an important skill in general?PART 2Consider your argument essay’s organization. You’ll want to organize your essay in a way that maximizes your argument. Do you think your readers are likely to be hostile to your point of view? Perhaps you want to open the essay acknowledging common ground and being by raising their objections and counter-arguing. Your essay organization could look like this:1. Introduction: introduce the issues and raise common concerns and valuesa. Raise a point of view that opponents to your thesis may have and counter-argue (that is, show where their point of view is weak or where it does not serve the shared/goals and values you just wrote about)b. Introduce your thesis statement2. Body paragraphs that give reasons and support for your thesis3. Raise and counter any remaining objections 4. Conclude by emphasizing how your point of view (thesis) best serves the shared goals and valuesBut if you think that your readers are likely to look favorably on your thesis, you might want to organize the paper differently:1. Introduction that emphasizes how important the issue is, followed by your thesis statement2. Body paragraphs providing reasons and support and raise and counter any objections3. Conclusion emphasizing the merits of your thesis.For the second part of this Writing Journal, please tell me how you think you will organize your essay and why. ———————–END OF ASSIGNMENT———————–[Attached is the essay that I’ve already made.]Thank You.

Income Inequality
On the start of the worldwide economic crisis, there was an increase in real disposable household
income by an average of 1.7% annually in OECD countries over the past decades. However, in
the majority of the OECD countries, the richest countries had growth in household income by
10% while the poorest countries had 10% hence a widening of the income inequality (Frankfurt
& Harry 10). There is also a difference in the growth of income in terms of the pace across
household groups particularly in the countries speaking English, the Nordic countries as well as
OECD countries are the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. The
countries above have experienced a drift in income inequality. To some extent, it seems that
economic growth has not upgraded all income elements to a similar degree. In some countries,
the top incomes have incorporated the majority of the shares regarding the overall income
benefits. On the other hand, income has only increased to a small extent. Similarly, poverty has
remained to be a major pressing policy issue. Poverty has remained the principal matter since the
current economic crisis due to its adverse effects and impacts. Consequently, there is increasing
consensus in relation to the assessments and evaluations of the economic performance that it
should center on income growth as well as the distribution of the economic income (Hoeller,

Joumard, & Isabell Koske 23 ). According to the stigitz-fitoussi-sen commission regarding social
along with economic performance argued for a change in perception on the same. In addition,
inclusiveness has become among the critical issues affecting the OECD countries. There exists
new evidence relating to inequality and the numerous determinants as well as the policy issues
surrounding the OECD countries. The new evidence builds on previous works on inequality
incomes. The major issue that arises is the concept of the countries growing unequally.
Furthermore, poverty and income distribution come in handy in explaining the matter in as much
as they lack solid evidence. Moreover, there is no clear understanding on the reason behind the
rising inequality.

White-Collar Crime
The paradigm of the criminal career has recently grown to be an increasingly significant
perception in the concept of street crimes. However, the matter has created little interest in the
academic world who are concerned with white collar crimes. This great neglect by scholars is
attributed to the common assumption regarding white-collar criminals. In as much as street
criminals are perceived to highly recidivate, the white-collar counterparts are perceived to be
criminals who are one-shot and less likely to processes according to the judicial system after the

previous brushing with the law. The image regarding the white-collar criminals has created lots
of controversies as well as the reflection of the defendants in the criminal records of their
convictions under the statues of the white-collar crime (Koller 20). In addition, the image of the
white-collar criminals is also highly controversial since some societies view them in a similar
light with those of the street crimes hence should be convicted similarly. However, there is a
finding which shows that there is a consistent repetition of crime life among white-collar
criminals. In addition, recent findings also suggest that such offenders have a high likelihood of
beginning their careers later in life as well as lower frequency of the offenders committing a
crime. All in all, white collar collar criminals have numerous implications which most being
In the early nineteenth as well as the twentieth century, most ideologists have focused on
understanding crime based on theoretical sociology which defines it as an issue of personal
characteristics as well as poverty. Crime can basically be linked to poverty in the majority of the
aspects including mental illness, criminal subcultures, broken homes, along with slum housing.
Among the most commonly used theories is the anomie theory which influences the majority of
the ideologies (Weisburd et al. 12). The theory explains that a community taught to value
achieving specific goals including wealth as opposed to the methods of accomplishing the
objectives due to uneven distribution is doomed to be coupled with white collar crime. The
members of the society might be pressured to achieve much without a definition of the means to
achieving hence resorting to crime. Therefore, crime is linked to societal notions of achieving
without provision of the necessary tools.

Online education
The future of online evaluation and measurement lies solely in the hands of the majority
of the early adopters as well as hardy pioneers determined to curb the challenges associated with
the same. In addition, the pioneers were driven by the urge to push forward the learning and
evaluation approach. The pioneers of online education know assessment, teaching, learning,
training, and operational advances can only be achieved when online education, as well as
measurement, is understood well (Howell &Scott 26). Online education is perceived to comprise
of any technology which assists in learning hence should include digital projectors, radio,
computers, and television among others. Online education is mainly focused on the
communication media which technology generates rather than the products themselves. An
example s the computer-based technology. However, there is some overlapping regarding the
aspect of online learning and learning. Therefore, there lie numerous academics on the
evaluation of only the education as well as the role of technology in the planning along with

delivering programs appropriate to distinct disciplines (Bach, Philip Haynes, &Jennifer Lewis

The guiding premise of the book is that evaluation is context-specific. Working online and
having online tools in our midst inherently changes the context of the work and learning that we
do; therefore, the means and measures must change as well.
