Use inductive reasoning to structure your essay.
Inductive reasoning is where a known idea or quality is examined and then with that
understanding another unknown idea is examined against that criteria. Consider science. When
a new animal is discovered, biologists and other scientists examine that animali??s characteristics
and categorize it based on the qualities that are known. Mammals breath air through lungs,
keep a relatively constant temperature and have live young. Where as a reptile breathes air,
does not keep a constant temperature and has young in eggs. So the new animal is compared
to the criteria to determine if it is a mammal or reptile or other species.
For your essay, begin with the definition or known criteria then apply those ideas to your topic.
