mULTI-sOURCE aCADEMIC wRITING
Write a well-organized and well-supported essay with an original thesis based on the five readings and one video for Module 3. The essay must include no less than SIX citations from these readings and/or video.
A well-organized essay has a beginning, middle, and end. The beginning, or introduction, should include an opening sentence to grab your reader’s attention. Follow the opening sentence with a brief background on the topic or situation. In this case, it would be an explanation of the “me” society we live in today. The last sentence of the introduction is the thesis statement. The thesis states the main point of the essay.
A well-supported essay includes supporting points, details, and examples. For this essay, you must decide the best way to organize the body of the paper. Each body paragraph must have a topic sentence that states the main point of the paragraph.
This essay must include no less than SIX citations from these readings and/or video. Citations are to be a combination of direct quotations and paraphrased quotations with or without the author’s name. No other sources are to be used for this assignment.
The conclusion typically summarizes the main points of the essay and/or closes with a lasting impression that connects the reader to their world. In this case, where do we go from here?
The essay must also include a Reference List that includes the readings and/or video quoted in the essay.
Be sure to proofread your essay and edit for proper grammar, punctuation, diction (word choice), and spelling, as errors in sentence skills, will lower a final grade. A grade will be determined based on Module 3 Case expectations and the Trident University General Education rubric for English.
Papers must be double-spaced in Times or Times New Roman font (12 cpi) with standard one-inch margins.
The first person “I” is not used in a formal essay, nor is the passive “you.” In place of “you,” “one” may be used.
