Purpose: The last assignment is your Research Paper. Since this is a research paper,
you must go beyond the boundaries of your own knowledge by providing support from
borrowed material, though you may include some personal experience to introduce or
support ideas. Because no more than 10% of your final paper may be in the form of
direct quotations, most of your evidence from outside sources will be in the form of
summary (someone elses ideas in your own words and sentence structure). All papers
must include information from at least six reliable sources in a variety of formats
(books, journal articles, newspapers, interviews, internet sources, etc.) and you must
follow MLA style guidelines for a Works Cited page. In addition, you must demonstrate
proficient quoting and summarizing skills.
Persuasion Approach papers those trying to persuade or convince: If you are writing
this type of paper, you should:
Clearly state the problem as you see it, including both sides of the issue
Include a possible solution and an action the audience could take if choosing to
do the action.
Support your possible solution with a well-reasoned presentation and evidence
from outside sources
Problem solving papers those trying to negotiate or inquire: If you are writing this
type of paper, you should:
Clearly state and prove a problem exists using evidence from outside sources.
Propose likely solutions supported with outside evidence.
Explain how and why solutions will work.
Handle any opposition to possible solutions.
