Paper should address all of them: Identify the subject and the issue about it that is the focus of your claim. Use a combination of your own words and quotations from the sources to explain the positions or arguments in them. Articulate in your own words the claim you are making about the subject and how it relates to other positions on or information about it. With whom or what are you agreeing, disagreeing, or agreeing with a difference? Explain and justify your position with support from the sources you have chosen, recognizing and responding to the most likely objection(s) to your position. Restate your claim, your strongest reason(s) for it, and the positive outcomes of this position (and/or negative outcomes of not accepting it). Sources: Because this essay depends on knowing what others have said about your subject, you will need to include information from at least four credible and relevant outside sources (probably no Wiki or HowTo sites) and properly cite these sources. That means including internal citations and a Works Cited page formatted according to MLA citation style (8th edition). These will probably be the same sources on your annotated bibliography, but you may include other sources if you have a good reason to substitute for those on your annotated bibliography. Regardless, DO NOT include the annotations on your Works Cited page for this essay. Goals: The goals of this research project are to practice gathering, assessing, and integrating information; defining and defending a position with appropriate support from other authors; giving those authors proper credit for their ideas and/or words with internal citations; developing an argument over several coherent paragraphs and pages; demonstrating use of a tone and vocabulary appropriate for your target audience; and demonstrating proficiency with the rules of standard written English. Paragraph 1 Introduce your topic (and specific focus if the topic is broad). Write four or five sentences describing this issue and what you know about it. Paragraph 2 Identify the main question or concern you plan to address in your paper. Explain if this position is entirely your own or if you are starting with another author’s thoughts (agreeing, disagreeing, or agreeing with a difference). Paragraph 3 Propose an answer to the question or concern you have identified and the recommendation about it you think you will offer and defend in your research paper. Paragraph 4 Explain what you still need to learn or what questions you still need to answer to write your research paper.
