discuss and take-a-stand regarding a very specific contemporary controversy.

Research and discuss an event or issue that is happening or being debated now (in 2020) so that you can utilize the most recent sources (television, newspapers, weekly magazines, on-line databases) as well as the traditional library sources. Focus on a specific element, issue, or argumentative stance. An obvious choice would be to discuss and take-a-stand regarding a very specific contemporary controversy. Please refer to the Instructional Messages that detail and exemplify.

FORMAT: Follow your college handbook closely and use the new MLA-8 style to the letter; buy the handbook and work with it closely as a reference guide. In future courses you may be asked to use a style other than MLA, so learn by example: rely heavily on the sample research papers in the assigned handbook and the in-class handouts.

LENGTH: At least 1200 words, or at leastFOURtyped double-spaced pages (but the essay probably will and should exceed 1500 words)…. Sustain a specific focus, accumulating the required words; remember that the quality of your work is most important.

SOURCES: Your final draft must include at leastFIVEsources in your Works Cited, including at leasttwo electronic sources. Use as much variety of research as you can (peer-reviewed academic journals, magazines/newspapers, books, audio/visual, online databases).Eighttotwelvesources are preferred.

ARGUMENTATION: Approach your topic from many directions and phrase a clear thesis that is argumentative (where you not only present research but emphasize your own ideas on the issue). Vigorously support your argument.

PLAGIARISM: Do your own work and write your own paper, or you will fail the course; also, make a genuine effort to cite all sources fully and accurately. If you fail to demonstrate a basic understanding of documentation requirements so that your sources are not fully cited, your paper will receive a failing grade. Your essay will undergo an electronic Originality Check.

DOCUMENTATION: If the documentation of the final draft of your research paper is not consistent to the MLA style (MLA-8, the 2016 updates, preferred), the paper must receive a failing grade.
