Essay #3 (300 points)
OBJECTIVES: Write a formal documented MLA or APA Documentation Style essay with minimum 8 FULL pages, incorporating 5-10 quotes from 5-10 Scholarly Resources from the RSC LRC using either MLA or APA and include a Works Cited or References page, using Rogerian Method Argument, including Visual Argument, and incorporating a Chart or Graph. The Resources should come from the Bibliography. An APA essay should include a Title Page and Abstract page. This essay should be created in response to the course’s thematic reading (Geopolitical Issue or Social Issue). Use correct grammar, mechanics, and format. Follow ALL of the “Essay #3 Requirements” and “Essay Writing Requirements and Rubric.” Format for MLA or APA: Use 1-inch margins, Double-space the entire essay, use 12 point Times New Roman font, and use MLA or APA Headings.
DIRECTIONS: Write a 9 page (minimum 8 FULL content pages) MLA or APA Rogerian Method Argument Research Essay using at least 5 Resources from the Bibliography and include a Works Cited or Reference page of the Resources on the page after the essay. The Rogerian Method Argument should be done throughout the essay. Be aware of the use of Media and Propaganda when researching and writing the essay. Include Visual Argument and a Table or Graph within the essay (see below). Essay #3 is a Formal Writing assignment based on Research and Argument NOT on personal experiences and opinions; therefore, the essay should be written using “Formal Language” using 3rd person (DO NOT use “I” or “You”). Essay #3 should be minimum 5-paragraphs and include MLA or APA Headings, a Title, an Introduction with a Thesis Sentence (underline Thesis Sentence), 3 Body Paragraphs with Topic Sentences, and a Conclusion. Essay #3 can be more than 5-paragraphs, but the essay should be a minimum 8 FULL content pages. APA essays should also include a Title page and an Abstract page, which do not count as part of the 8 content pages. The Abstract paragraph should be 150-250 words.
Use 5-10 quotes from 5-10 Scholarly Resources from the RSC LRC cited using MLA or APA and include a Works Cited or References page for the resources on the page after the essay. The resources should relate to and support the essay topic and argument. Use at least 5 quotes from 5 resources with at least one quote in each Body Paragraph; you may use a quote in the Introduction and/or Conclusion (10 quotes total). Use a variety of resources—books, journal articles, and/or encyclopedia entries. Do NOT use more than 10 quotes, Do NOT use more than TWO block quotes, and Do NOT repeat quotes. Use Quotes, not Paraphrases; a Quote has “Quotation Marks” around it with a MLA citation included with the Quote. Other than the quotes, the rest of the essay should be written in your own words using Formal Language (3rd person). The essay should be minimum 9 pages with the 8 page essay and Works Cited or References page.
The essay needs to be submitted on the RSC electronic platform in a forum in which it may be viewed by a larger audience than just the course professor; therefore, Essay #3 needs to be submitted to Canvas “Assignments” ANDCanvas “Essay #3 Discussion Posting” by the due date.
Visual Argument: Incorporate into the essay ONE form of Visual Argument Media relevant to the Essay Topic—suggested Media include the following: hyperlink to a web page, image, or video (an Internet resource is allowed for the Media). The Media counts for 10 points of the Essay. The Media should relate to and support the essay topic and argument. The Media should be placed within the body of the essay. Be sure to include an MLA or APA citation for the Media within the essay (after the Media) and an MLA Works Cited or APA Reference page entry for the Media. The Media can count as part of the 8 content pages; however, only ONE Media counts as part of the 8 content pages and the Media should not take up more than half a page of the essay. The Media does NOT count as one of the Scholarly Resources; therefore, the Media can be from the Internet. Refer to The Practiced Writer Chapter 7.
Chart or Graph: One of the “Expected Outcomes” in Composition 1213 is for students to “practice information literacy to assess the validity of collecting, analyzing, and summarizing data to construct a table or graph.” Students need to create an original Chart or Graph for Essay #3. The Chart or Graph counts for 10 points of the Essay. The Chart or Graph should relate to and support the essay topic and argument. The information for the Chart or Graph can be taken from a RSC LRC Scholarly Resource–be sure to cite the resource . The Chart or Graph should be placed within the body of the essay. Be sure to include an MLA or APA citation for the Chart or Graph within the essay (after the Chart or Graph) and an MLA Works Cited or APA Reference page entry for the Chart or Graph. The Chart or Graph can count as part of the 8 content pages; however, only ONE Chart or Graph counts as part of the 8 content pages and the Chart or Graph should not take up more than half a page of the essay. Refer to the OWL Purdue website–under “APA Formatting and Style Guide” there are two pages that might be helpful, “APA Tables and Figures 1” and “APA Tables and Figures 2,” and under “MLA Formatting and Style Guide” there is one page that might be helpful, “MLA Tables, Figures, and Examples.”
Documentation Style: For the Research Project: Proposal, Bibliography, and Essay #3, students need to use either MLA or APA Documentation Style as best fits the student’s subject matter and major. Use the same Documentation Style in all three of the assignments for the Research Project. See the definitions below taken from The Practiced Writertextbook by Kevin Caliendo to see which category your subject matter and major fit into:
“MLA is an editorial style recommended by the Modern Languages Association (MLA) for preparing scholarly manuscripts and research papers in the arts and humanities, which includes English, literature, humanities, communications, religion, art, theater, and a number of other disciplines” (Caliendo 139).
“APA is a set of guidelines for the preparation of manuscripts developed by the American Psychological Association (APA)…for the discipline of psychology…and is used in a number of other fields including business, science, sociology, and nursing” (Caliendo, 2017, p. 155).
MLA Documentation Style: MLA Documentation Style Research paper—Use MLA format and headings, all of the quotations need to be cited correctly using MLA, and include an entry for the Resources on a Works Cited page cited correctly using MLA. For help with MLA Documentation Style, refer to The Practiced Writer Chapter 11 and the OWL Purdue (MLA) website.
APA Documentation Style: APA Documentation Style Research paper—use APA for the essay format, headings, and subheadings, all of the quotations need to be cited correctly using APA, and include an entry for each of the Resources on a References page cited correctly using APA. An APA Essay should include a Title page and an Abstract page. For help with APA Documentation Style, refer to The Practiced Writer Chapter 12 and the OWL Purdue (APA) website.
Scholarly Resources: The Resources need to come from the RSC LRC and should be considered a Scholarly Resource. Scholarly Resource: A Scholarly Resource is written by an author or editor who has a background or degree in the field of study and the resource was published in the last 30 years in a reputable book, journal, or encyclopedia from the RSC LRC. Use resources that have an author or editor.
*Do NOT use World Wide Web (www) Internet resources. *Do NOT use dictionaries, literary works, newspapers, popular magazines, children/teen sources, personal websites, online essay sites, Bible or religious texts, Wikipedia, Cliffnotes, or Sparknotes. *Do NOT use the course textbooks as a Resource.
Research: Use a variety of resources from the RSC LRC—books, journal articles, and/or encyclopedia entries. Visit the RSC LRC Library website for “Resources.” Use the “Library Catalog” to find Books. Use the “Online Databases” to find Journal Articles and Encyclopedia entries (EBSCOhost is a good Database to start with–be sure to click “Full Text” and “Scholarly” when searching for Journal Articles). The LRC’s online “Research Guides” might also be helpful.
