Essay #5: Adding Research
The purpose of this assignment is to create a
of Essay #4 by adding information or arguments from additional sources to last unit’s essay. Please remember that I am looking for a prominent difference between Essay #4 and Essay #5. You are not simply adding in additional research. Your task is to revise Essay #4 based on feedback from your peers and instructor. These revisions will include a substantial overhaul to Essay #4 which should include adding in additional research to help validate and discuss your points.
As you search for sources, consider these higher-order concerns.
Is your main claim, thesis, or central message clear? Does every element of your essay consistently support your thesis? Do your minor claims support your major claims? Have you defined the issue at hand? What can you do to further emphasize your focus?
What evidence does your essay provide to support your focus? Have you included examples, explanations, details, and descriptions that help persuade your readers of your position? Have you anticipated and answered your readers’ objections or counterarguments? Have you considered alternate perspectives?
Have you identified a target audience for your essay? What do you do to appeal to that audience? Does your essay rely primarily on emotional appeals or logical appeals? What do you do in the essay to establish your credibility as a writer?
Additional Outside Sources:
How could adding outside perspectives strengthen your argument? Have other writers, scholars, or researchers addressed the issue at hand? Are your claims backed by a consistent pattern of reliable evidence? Are basic factual claims backed with evidence or sources? How does your essay engage with counterarguments or alternate perspectives on the issue?
How does the structure of your essay support its message? Could the essay be re-structured or re-ordered to better support your arguments? Are paragraphs and transitions used to guide readers through your ideas?
Before you turn in this assignment, create a bullet list of the changes and revisions you made. Include this list either as a second file or an additional page.
Failure to submit this required information will result in a grade deduction for this assignment.
After you turn in this revision, your instructor will provide further guidance for revising this piece for your portfolio. Your instructor will probably also provide pointers for revisions for the
essay you will revise for the portfolio in Unit 7.
Sample Student Essays
I am not providing sample essays for Essay #5. By this time in the course, you should be quite familiar with what I am looking for when it comes to development of ideas. You should anticipate what I expect when it comes to making revisions. You are free to review the samples I provided in the Unit 4 Revision Project as the process is very similar.
Guidelines for Essay #5
: approximately 1,000-1,400 words,
due Sunday, November 29 midnight Central Standard Time
: This, as all essays in EN106, should be formatted in a standard scholarly format. (Most students follow MLA or APA guidelines, which are outlined in
.) No matter what format you follow, be sure to do the following:
Use 12 point, Times New Roman font, double-spaced.
Use 1-inch margins top, bottom, and sides.
Although no cover page is needed, you should include your name, my name, the course number/title, and date at the upper left-hand corner of the manuscript.
Research & Documentation
two additional sources beyond the sources cited in Essay #4. Your essay must include formal references to all sources. Be sure to provide in-text citations using a standard scholarly style, such as MLA or APA. And, of course, you must also provide appropriate documentation for any other sources you cite.
: Please submit your essay as a .doc, .docx, or .pdf file. These formats are available in most word processors, including Google Docs and Open Office, and will ensure that your instructor is able to comment on your work.

: Include a descriptive title at the beginning of your essay that tips your readers off to your thesis. Do not format your title with quotation marks, boldface, underlining or italics. Quotation marks or underlining are only appropriate if the title borrows words from another source.
: Please do not format your essay to include a cover page.
