Instructions: For our final major assignment, we’re going to change gears and develop an argument on how writing skills and written communications will be useful in your future. I want you to consider a career that interests you — or consider a future you may want to pursue. Your task is to argue how writing is useful in that particular career or path. In other words, I’m asking you to develop an argument about how writing will be a part of your future, beyond this course.
You’re going to need to find your own original source material — you are required to synthesize two outside sources, found by you, that help defend your position. This will require outside research on your part: You will use material you’ve discovered independently, without my direct intervention.
Please note that this essay will not be a personal essay, but a persuasive essay; this means that you won’t be using a personal voice, but instead focusing on explaining and synthesizing your views with the source material. You will need to use MLA format to cite source material. Please bear in mind that this changes the context of your writing — I want you to consider how you’ll engage audience interest and make me feel a direct connection to your work, while citing outside source material, and working toward persuading the audience to agree with your viewpoints.
One of our goals in this assignment will be to follow the writing process. This means you’ll have to plan the essay, write a draft, revise the draft, and then submit the final product. Please do not just write a first draft and submit that — the goes against the goals of learning the writing process. First, you’re going to write brainstorm; then, you’re going to write a rough draft and revise it based on notes written to you by your peers and myself.
Research Requirements: This assignment requires at least two documented sources (PRIMARY, SECONDARY, or TERTIARY). You are forbidden from just using reference material (dictionaries, encyclopedias, Wikipedia, Ask.com, or other reference sites). You are forbidden from using personal interviews. Any web sites used must meet the standards of academic rigor, meaning that a scholar would approve of the use of the site. We will discuss how to evaluate source material in class. Use of forbidden sources will result in an automatic “F” on the assignment.
Students may use the following: articles from a Valencia database, books from the library, blogs from noted professionals in the field, professional web sites, reputable organizational web sites, academic web sites, government web sites, and professional journals.
We will be using MLA documentation (in-text parenthetical citations and a works cited page) for this essay.
MLA Format: 12 Point Conservative Font (e.g. Times New Roman). Double- Spaced (check the paragraph formatting – make sure the “Do not add space between paragraphs of same style” box is checked). Header with five items (your name, professor’s name, course, assignment, date). Centered title (not bolded, underlined, or italicized; same font size as the body of the essay). One inch margins (top, bottom, left, and right). Your last name and page number (Doe 2, for example) in the upper right hand corner (0.5 inch from top right hand corner; use the insert page number function on your word processor and add your name).
