The Assignment: In an expository essay of 1,200 words or more (roughly 4.5 pages, typed and double-spaced), address one of the following prompts. This essay should feature a well-developed thesis and appropriate evidence to support your thesis. You must engage and cite at least one essay assigned in this class, and two essays from your own research on the topic. Be sure to provide strong analysis of quotes and examples.
Due Date: Monday, December 12, 2016
Option 1: Describe a current or on-going environmental concern. What factors have contributed to this concern? What are the proposed solutions? Which solution is most viable, as you understand it? (Our Oceans Are Turning to Plastic)
Option 2: How do we balance some people’s assertion that animals should have rights and be protected with such institutions as animal testing, the meat industry, and seafood festivals? What are the moral and/or ethical reasons for eating animals or testing products on animals as presented in the texts? What is your response? (An Animal’s Place)
Option 3: Describe the current and/or recent trends in recommended diet. Who influences these trends? What approaches are there to diet—as described by Pollan or those that he overlooked? What are the possible effects of various diets on health, the environment, the economy, or other elements of our world? In your opinion, what is the best approach to diet? (An Animal’s Place)
Research: The two outside sources should be nonfiction articles/essays published in a credible source. (This means you should not use blogs, Wikipedia, Sparknotes, etc.) Be sure to check the reliability of the author; articles should be written by someone with a degree in the field or another credential. Use this research to find new perspectives on your topic, to support your claims, or to provide a counter-argument.
Format: This essay will be in MLA format. This means it will be typed, double-spaced, in 12-point font (I prefer Times New Roman), with page numbers and your last name on each page, and a header on the first page. Your title should be original, and you must include a Works Cited page. Be sure to include in-text citations in the body of the essay. For help with MLA formatting and citations, please see the handouts on Canvas in the folder called “Files.”
Submitting the essay: Please submit an electronic copy to the Dropbox folder on Canvas titled “Essay #3” in Microsoft Word format.
Note: Words and phrases that are underlined on this page will be taken into consideration when grading.
