Week 5 Assignment
This week’s assignment is the final Argument Research Paper. This final copy will demonstrate the argument, writing, and revision techniques studied in the course and will build upon the steps you have taken in previous weeks.
Writing Requirements for the Argument Research Essay Final Draft:
Correct use of APA guidelines for the following:
Headers with pagination
Margins, spacing, and paragraph indentation
APA in-text citation and referencing for all sources
Do not divide your essay into sections.
Do not use headings within your paper to indicate changes in topic. While longer APA essays and particular types of APA writing, such as scholarly articles, employ APA-style bolded headings to divide portions of the writing, you are writing a shorter academic essay. Your shift from one paragraph to the next should be signaled through your use of the effective transition and topic sentence rules we have practiced.
6-8 full pages for the essay itself, not including title page or references
Effective structure, including your introduction paragraph, your body paragraphs, and your conclusion paragraph
Use of third-person throughout. Focus on the topic, not on you nor on the essay. In other words: no first-person I, and no referring to the essay, such as In this essay.
At least 5 scholarly sources visibly used, cited, and referenced
