I’m working on a english question and need an explanation to help me study.
- Step #1: Finding sources
- Step#2: Writing an annotated bibliography
- Step #3: Writing an introductory and one body paragraph
- Step #4: Final draft
- Your paper will be done in the MLA format and style of citations (see the next page for the MLA explanation).
Your paper should be organized in the following way:
should tell the reader what your paper is about
The introductory paragraph should:
- introduce the issue and hook the reader
- provide the basic definition of the issue
- state your research question
- provide the concise thesis that answers the research question
- There could be many, but the minimum is 3
- The paragraph that follows the introduction should provide the background or history of the issue
- The next few paragraphs must summarize your findings on the issue (there should be more than one)
- Each significant finding should be in a separate paragraph
- You should have a paragraph where you summarize the research that refutes or contradicts the major findings. This goes something like this: “While most research agrees that X is a problem, Z and Y says that it is not.” In other words, you MUST address other points of view on this issue.
The concluding paragraph:
- should summarize what your findings
- may provide suggestions for future research
- should only be one paragraph long
- MLA formatted
- Works Cited page should be part of your paper (the bibliography of your sources is the last page that should have the title “Works Cited)
- Your paper should be at least 3-4 pages long (not including images or Works Cited page)
- Double-spaced, 12 size font (for the body)
- Before you submit your assignment, read the rubric and use it as your checklist
- WORD (doc or docx) or PDF. No other formats will be accepted.
- Your final paper must be about 3-5 pages not including the Works Cited page. Shoot for 3.5-4 pages. It’s better to have a shorter, but more focused paper than a paper with more paragraphs that don’t add any value. You will not get a better grade just because your paper is long.
- I will run your paper through plagiarism software.
I will upload the rubric so you can check. Also, I will upload the other two sources that I have so you can use them too. so I only have the source you have to do them like you did the first two paragraphs. so we already have 1.5 pages now we need 2 more pages
these are the other two sources
