Swamped with your writing assignments? Take the weight off your shoulder!
For the fourth paper, you will write a research-based proposal essay. Basically, your essay will identify a problem or issue and then propose a way that it can be solved or addressed. Your argument will use the sources from your Annotated Bibliography as supporting evidence throughout the essay.
Think of your essay as containing two halves: the first half requires you to convincingly establish that there is a problem or issue, considering the causes and results of it. Following your introduction paragraph, you should write several paragraphs (at least two pages) on this part of your argument. Some paragraph topics you may include could be the general background of the topic, the specific causes of the problem, the negative effects of this problem, and why this issue needs to be addressed. An important thing to keep in mind is the fact that unless you convince your reader of this issue and its need to be addressed, then your argument will not be persuasive.
Once you have successfully demonstrated that there is a problem/issue, you will use the second half of your essay to propose a solution. This, along with your conclusion paragraph, will take up the remaining 2-3 pages of your essay. Your goal here should be to convincingly show that your proposed solution is feasible and successful. You should demonstrate why it is a valid option, explain its history, detail any necessary steps for implementing this solution, and incorporate any evidence that supports your argument. You should use and cite evidence from your sources in all sections of the essay.
Guidelines and Key Dates:
You need to use the 5 sources from your Annotated Bibliography in this essay.
The final draft should be at least 5 full pages in length, not counting the Title page, Abstract page, and References page. I would like the five sources they use so I can make a annotated bibliography
