Tips for my professor to write

II. Help the reader understand your position. Rely on simple phrases and sentences and avoid high style expressions. Do not assume that your reader knows more than you.
III. Try to organize your essay in a logical way.

Eliminate pointless introductions and conclusions. Try to apply the knowledge of ethics gained in this class.
