Beautifully Blinded – Animal Cruelty Beauty Ind.[Primary Source] (Argumentative or Expository Essay)

Beautifully Blinded – Animal Cruelty Beauty Ind.[Primary Source] (Argumentative or Expository Essay)

When it comes to essays students seem to hit a snag on interesting, authentic scholarly primary and secondary sources. I just added some samples that you could share with them on animal cruelty. Beautifully Blinded – The Ugly Secret of the Beauty Industry By E. Caracciolo, January 2017, My-Pet-Story.com Whether conducting research in the social sciences, humanities (especially history), arts, or natural sciences, the ability to distinguish between primary and secondary source material is essential. Basically, this distinction illustrates the degree to which the author of a piece is removed from the actual event being described, informing the reader as to whether the author is reporting impressions first hand (or is first to record these immediately following an event), or conveying the experiences and opinions of others—that is, second hand.
