Write an essay of 600 – 750 words (2.5 – 3 pages) that examines a topic based on one or more of our class readings.
The essay must do the following:
o Provide background information (events, important persons, controversies etc.) so that an uninformed reader may understand the context of the issue/topic and your approach to it.
o Indicate clearly the purpose of the paper to persuade a reader that you have taken a sensible position on an issue. o Include a clearly stated thesis sentence.
o Support the thesis with clearly relevant content in the paper paragraphs so that each includes more than one supporting idea and several specific examples and illustrations.
o Integrate relevant reference materials as summary, paraphrase, or quotations and include your interpretations of these references to demonstrate their relevance to the topic.
o Attribute and document accurately all information from sources.
o Draw an informed conclusion based on the reading, your sources, and, if appropriate, your own experience.
o Include correct internal and ending reference information following MLA format requirements.
