    Okay, well when you do an essay, our teacher says you have to use SEEC:

    S----- this stands for STATEMENT. Make a statement at the very start of your paragraph. Here is an example: In the USA, many inequalities exist, and Blacks are the worst hit.

    E----- this stands for EXPLANATION. explain what you have just said.

    E---- This is EVIDENCE. This is where you introduce a statistic.

    C---- Do a sub conclusion linking to the question you were given.

    Here is a rough example of a paragraph on the president's powers essay:

    S: As president, one of most crucial roles he must undertake is that of Chief of the Armed forces.
    E: The president manages both the placement and quantity of troops in war.

    E:By August 2010, Obama reduced the number of troops in Iraq to 50,000 from 140,000.

    C: This highlights his control, especially since he had the power to overrule and ignore the generals.

    Hope i helped somewhat :*

    There are millions of examples you can use all over the internet. Do a bit of research (ie. go onto BBC news website) and you'll find plenty for each topic, and each sub-topic.
