Purpose: The purpose for this writing assignment is to inform your audience about a topic in pop culture. An informative essay, sometimes called expository essay, educates the audience on a certain topic. The assignment calls for using different rhetorical strategies to create one text. The research essay targets and improves composition skills and critical thinking skills.
Create an academic essay of at least 4 full pages, no more than 5 pages of text.
3rd person (he, she, they, someone, everyone, people, the general public, etc.) point of view voice should be used in the essay. There should not be first person “I” or second person “you” voice.
Apply MLA formatting to the essay: 12 pt. Times New Roman font, double-spaced, 1” margins, last name and page number in the upper right-hand corner, and a left centered heading including your name, class, instructor’s name, and date. Also include a title.
Apply basic composition skills: topic sentences, thesis statement, logical and effective organization, effective integration of sources, transitions, and incorporating appropriate content.
Understand and apply standard written English. Use appropriate vocabulary and avoid mechanical and grammatical errors.
Integrate and use 4 credible sources (no more, or no less). Sources (books, articles, essays, websites) can come from Wake Tech’s NC Live database or the general internet as long as they are credible. You will find directions to the NC Live database under the weekly folder. You may also use sources from The Wake Tech Reader textbook. *Failure to use credible sources and using too many sources (sources every line) will lead to major deductions.
Create a works cited page (does not count towards the overall word count of the actual essay).
Assignment: Choose a topic that is a part of contemporary pop culture. Pop culture is short for popular culture; therefore, anything that appeals to the masses, resulting in trends or increased popularity, could be considered a part of pop culture.
Ø A technological trend
Ø Contemporary films (such as a particular genre)
Ø A particular sport
Ø Reality television
Ø Social media trend and its effects
Ø A topic of your choosing (as long as it is approved)
You are to educate and inform your audience about why the topic is considered part of pop culture. For example, what are some of the trends when it comes to a particular technology? Why are certain sports, such as hockey and mixed martial arts, gaining popularity? Be prepared to use the definition and exemplification rhetorical strategies. You can also compare and contrast certain technologies or discuss the cause and effect of certain popular trends. The floor is open to numerous topics and approaches as long as the topics are classroom appropriate. The goal for this assignment is to inform the reader about the reasons the topic is considered pop culture.
Your research should not be more than seven years old.
Sources: Use your sources to reinforce your position. Do not start paragraphs with quotations, and do not end paragraphs with quotations. You should always assume control by using the evidence to support your claims, not writing claims to support your evidence. Your words should always outweigh the quotations. Also, make sure to use attribution to effectively integrate sources. Do not let a quotation act as its own sentence. You must incorporate your research throughout the entire essay.
