English 1101 Persuasive/Analytical Essay Assignment

 

Write an effective, grammatically sound persuasive/analytical essay between 500 and 800 words in length, double-spaced, with 12 point font and 1 inch margins using MLA formatting for headers and running heads.  We will work on rough drafts and citations mechanics during the day the final drafts are due, and papers will be turned-in by the end of that class session. Papers must also be submitted to turnitin.com by the end of that class as well.

 This essay will serve as in introduction to research and MLA formatting as you will locate and cite sources of information to support your arguments. Your essay must employ at least TWO SECONDARY SOURCES, as well as parenthetical citations and a "Works Cited" page in proper MLA format – all of which are covered in Harbrace chapters 32 and 33 and about which we will discuss in class. Likewise, the Assignment Guide created by the GHC Library and located at http://www.highlands.edu/site/library-assignment-guides will be very helpful. Any electronic source must come from GIL or GALILEO, and information on GALILEO citations is located at the online handout at http://www.highlands.edu/patterson/citing-galileo-netlibrary.htm .

 Evidence of plagiarism will result in a zero for the assignment.

 As always, if you have questions about this process beyond our class discussions, contact me or the Tutorial Center.
