(More than one paragraph may be needed to discuss each key point.) After choosing key points for your essay, select appropriate evidence to support your points. (SC4 Databases REQUIRED, though you may include ONE additional online source (website) if you wish.) Search the SC4 Databases for a minimum of ONE supporting source for each key point. In other words, you will have a total of at least FOUR database sources cited in your paper and listed on your Works Cited. When you locate a suitable database source for your paper, save the source as a Word or PDF document. (This is important, as you are REQUIRED to submit these articles with your essay.) On the saved copy, highlight any summaries, paraphrases, or quotes used in your paper. Remember, any information you’ve cited in your paper from these sources is information you learned from your research; therefore, it must be cited in proper MLA 8 format. This means an in-text citation must follow this information, and you must include the proper entry on the Works Cited. Using the information gathered from your sources, write an essay that addresses both sides of the argument and asserts a claim. The goal of this essay is to convince readers; thus you will present both sides of the argument then assert a claim to essentially explain your stance on the subject.
