I am due for one essay (by April 25) and need help with my essay.
here is the template:
For your fourth essay, I would like you to compose an argumentative essay on a topic relevant to your career at Brandywine. You are required to use ample evidence from library sources to help you analyze your experiences at Brandywine.
Please seek out substantive and sophisticated sources for this essay. This means that your topic may need to adapt to sources available. Try to enjoy the process of learning from your sources and try not to get too frustrated if you can’t find sources that “say what you want.” I’m always available to help you find better materials if you get stuck. Also, don’t forget our campus reference librarians!
My expectations for your work:
A clear main idea encapsulated in a thesis statement and supported throughout the essay
A demonstration of research and analytical thinking rather than a reporting of facts or ideological assertions.
1000+ words in length, not counting the works cited page.
A well-edited document free of errors in grammar and punctuation
Paraphrase, quotation, and summarization
Thoughtful organization and transitions between paragraphs
In-text citation and a works cited page.
A minimum of 4 sources on the topic that you choose. These sources should be meaty enough that you can quote, paraphrase, and analyze the material at length. For full credit, at least 1 source must be a peer-reviewed academic article unless you receive special permission from me due to limitations of your topic.
Sources must be articles that you find in Penn State databases such as Academic Search Complete, JSTOR, LexusNexus, Proquest, and the Cat, as well as aggregators like GoogleScholar and Lionsearch. Major newspapers are also acceptable. Any other sources will result in grade deductions unless they have been approved by me well in advance of the submission deadline.
