The trend or phenomenon should have a definable set of causes and effects. Write a 1,500–1,750-word argument using five to seven academic resources that persuades an audience to accept your explanation of the causes and effects of your chosen trend or phenomenon related to the sale, trade, or donation of human organs. Directions Imagine your issue either as a puzzle or as a disagreement. If your issue is like a puzzle that needs to be put together, your task will be to create a convincing case for an audience that does not have an answer to your cause and effect question already in mind. If your issue is like a disagreement that needs to be resolved, your argument must be overtly persuasive because your goal will be to change your audience’s views. Be sure to examine alternative hypotheses or opposing views and explain your reasons for rejecting them. This essay is NOT a CASUAL essay. Instead, it is a cause and effect essay. A cause and effect essay explains the causes and effects of a trend or phenomenon involving the sale, trade, or donation of human organs.

Grand Canyon University. All Rights Reserved. 1 Typing Template for GCU Papers for Lower Division Courses Formatting: This is an electronic template for papers written in GCU style. The purpose of the template is to help you follow the basic writing expectations for beginning your coursework at GCU. Margins are set at 1 inch for top, bottom, left, and right. Each paragraph is indented five spaces. It is best to use the tab key to indent. The line spacing is double throughout the paper, even on the reference page. The font style used in this template is Times New Roman. The font size is 12. When you are ready to write, and after having read these instructions completely, you can delete these directions and start typing. The formatting should stay the same. If you have any questions, please consult with your instructor. Citations: Citations are used to reference material from another source. When paraphrasing material from another source (such as a book, journal, Web site, etc.), include the author’s last name and the publication year in parentheses. When directly quoting material wordfor-word from another source, use quotation marks and include the page number after the author’s last name and year. Using citations to give credit to others whose ideas or words you have used is an essential requirement to avoid issues of plagiarism. Just as you would never steal someone else’s car, you should not steal their words either. To avoid potential problems, always be sure to cite your sources by referring to the author’s last name and the year of publication in parentheses at the end 2 of the sentence, such as (Daresh, 2004) and page numbers if you are using word-for-word materials, such as “There are no simple strategies for accomplishing successful transitions, but we do know a great deal about how to get off to a good start” (King & Blumer, 2000, p. 356). The reference list should appear at the end of a paper (see the next page). It provides the information necessary for a reader to locate and retrieve any source you cite in the body of the paper. Each source you cite in the paper must appear in your reference list; likewise, each entry in the reference list must be cited in your text. A sample reference page is included below; this page includes examples of how to format different reference types (e.g., books, journal articles, a Web site). 3 References Arnold, J. B., & Dodge, H.

In the interest of providing resource material for student use, this guide to GCU style and format has been developed and made available. A template has been provided in the Student Success Center's Writing Center for student download and use. PLEASE NOTE: The curriculum materials (Syllabus, Lectures, Resources, etc.) created and provided by GCU in the online or Web-enhanced modalities are prepared using an editorial format that relies on APA as a framework but that modifies some format and formatting criteria to better suit the nature and purpose of instructional materials. Students and faculty are advised that GCU course materials do not adhere strictly to APA format and should not be used as examples of correct format when preparing written work for class. GCU Style General Academic writing, which is independent thought supported by reliable and relevant research, depends on the ability to integrate and cite the sources that have been consulted. Use GCU style for all references, in-text citations, formatting, etc. If this GCU Style Guide does not provide an example of a reference note for a specific type of source, refer to the APA style. The APA style guide can be located in the Student Success Center under the Writing Center. Helpful sites and resources can also be found at the GCU Library Citing Sources Research Guide at http://libguides.gcu.edu/CitingSources. Use one space after punctuation marks at the end of a sentence. Write in third-person point of view unless otherwise noted. Use first- and second-person sparingly, if ever. This means, avoid using I, we, and you; instead, use he, she, and they. Do not use contractions (e.g., it's, don't, should've). The Writing Process Students should become familiar with “The Writing Process” tutorial, located in the Student Success Center. This multimedia resource walks students through the process of writing by © 2016 Grand Canyon University 1 Last updated: April 8, 2019 explaining and demonstrating the organization, drafting, editing, revision, and finalization of written papers. It also provides valuable information on the research process, locating and citing sources, and how to paraphrase and use quotations. This is an essential tool students can use to improve their writing and should be used in conjunction with the GCU Style Guide. Paper Organization and Presentation The standard organization of a GCU style paper includes the paper heading, the body, and references. However, students are required to follow any specific directions given in the syllabus or assignment rubrics that may differ from this standard. Students can access a template for GCU Style paper format in the Student Success Center under the Writing Center. Students can write over the template instructions and be certain the paper is in the proper, GCU style format. Paper Heading The paper heading includes four lines in the upper left-hand corner of the first page. The student's name, the course number, the date of submission, and the instructor's name each take up their own line. The whole paper, including the heading, body, and references should be doublespaced. An example paper heading would look like: Figure 1 - Example of paper heading (document page viewpoint) Body The body will contain all of the author's main points as well as detailed and documented support for those ideas. The title is centered on the line after the paper heading, in initial caps. Refer to the GCU Style Guide Template for an example. © 2016 Grand Canyon University 2 Last updated: April 8, 2019 Due to the nature of most student essays, there is not usually a need for section headings and subheadings (Introduction, Methods, Conclusion, etc.). If guidelines are required or helpful, ensure there is a clear break in the flow of text and that the new heading/subheading is easy to spot. References The References list ...

Causes and Effects of Kidney Donation

Introduction
The cause and after effects on the issue of organ sale and donation are spanning across
the globe, and it is not merely a foreign issue, but a problem everywhere and the sale of the
organ is highly condemned all over the world except Iran. It is seen for instance, in Costa Rica
where the black market has thrived in recent years with there being an increased number of
citizens selling their body organs for money. The syndicate has gone on for centuries widening
its network and making it hard for the law enforcement agencies to arrest them. While the sale of
organs has been banned, organ donation is legal and has proven to be helpful for several patients
who would otherwise succumb to their state of dire needs. Undoubtedly, the contemporary world
has been hijacked by people who sell their body organs for purposes of money, while some sell
them based on weighted reasoning that they no longer need them. However, it is quite
unfortunate that these organs, though sold for good motives, end up in the hands of the black
market dealers who reap colossal amounts of money from the proceeds at the expense of the
owners. This is a fact that has caused mega problems in the organ donor industry calling for the
need to have a clearly defined solution to the same.
Remarkably, kidney donation is among the medical treatment methods through which
kidney replacement is done by way of transplanting the kidneys to an individual with damaged
kidneys. This procedure happens typically by the donor or volunteers offering to save the lives of
patients with kidney issues. As much as this has been a noble idea conceived by good moral
standings, organ donation has been hijacked by ill motives which include trade and sale of
human organs (Columb, 2017). The act has been so gross to the extent that humans are drugged
and murdered for such critical organs which are then sold at exorbitant rates.
