. In addition to the competencies identified in the unit, keep in mind the following considerations as you review and provide feedback on the sample publish for this assessment.
The key rhetorical purpose of this assignment is to assess your literacy background and how it has prepared you for college research and writing. Consider the question in the self-assessment essay description: “How have literacy sponsors supported or challenged your progress as a college writer?” In the publish you are reading, is the writer providing examples of literacy experiences and sponsors and explaining how they have prepared the writer to do the kinds of writing expected in this c​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​ompetency set? Why or why not?
Has the writer clearly understood, drawn from, and referenced the readings assigned for this paper? The Framework for Success in Postsecondary Writing, the Framework for Information Literacy, and “Sponsors of Literacy” as well as the English 102 Learning Outcomes readings referenced in Part 1 should be an important part of the writer’s discussion. Has the writer adequately considered the ideas and arguments from those class readings?
Once you’ve assessed your peer’s work in the context of these two issues, provide clear and detailed feedback as to how he or she might improve the essay in these areas. Would more detail help? Would more references help? Would you like to see clearer connections between the readings and the writer’s experiences? Provide clear suggestions for revision to help the writer in these areas.

Follow the directions below for the completion of the body paragraphs revision assignment for Unit VII. If you have questions, please email your professor for assistance.
Purpose: The purpose of this assignment is to revise the body of your academic argumentative research paper, which you created a publish of in Unit VI.
Description: In this assignment, you will revise the three to four body paragraphs you wrote in Unit VI. The following requirements must be included in the assignment:
Body Paragraphs: You will revise the body section of your paper based on feedback received from your professor in Unit VI. Please review here the guidelines for the body section of your research paper: This section will include three to four paragraphs comprised of five to seven sentences each. Each paragraph should be between 150-200 words. At a minimum, this portion of the paper should be 450-600 words (for three to four paragraphs); a body section of this length will meet the minimum requirements of the assignment. Revisions must be substantive and should be made in accordance with the direction given by the professor’s feedback. The following components must be included in each body paragraph (in the following order).
Sentence 1: Point/reason sentence: This topic ​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​sentence will contain one of your reasons.
Sentence 2: Explanation: In this sentence, you will provide information that further develops or explains Sentence 1.
Sentence 3: Illustration: This sentence introduces evidence that supports the reason that is presented in Sentence 1.
Sentence 4: Explanation of the illustration: Because the evidence does not necessarily stand on its own, you need to provide explanation so that the reader will understand how you interpreted the evidence to come to your reason.
Sentences 5-6: Second illustration and explanation (optional): You may choose to include a second piece of evidence that is then followed by an explanation.
Last Sentence: Transition: In this sentence, you will signal to the reader that you will be moving on to another point in the next paragraph. You do this to ease the movement from one point to another.

These topic descriptions are meant to be prompts to help you come up with a thesis.

O​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​verview
Research should be an interesting, absorbing, even exciting process. Imagine that you are on a treasure hunt or that you are a detective solving a crime. The researcher, like the detective, follows clues, unearths unexpected evidence, and encounters interesting people and ideas on the road to solving a mystery.
The trick is to begin with a topic you care about, questions you want to answer, and energy to explore. If you have all that, you will enjoy this assignment!

The Requirements
Write an 1800–2000 word essay defending a thesis that you believe in after finding the answers to your research questions (NOTE: do not make the research question itself the thesis). You must develop your thesis with clear supporting points that are backed up by discussion of outside sources. These sources must be documented in properly formatted in-text citations and on a Works Cited page according to MLA rules.
Your goal should not be to simply provide information about your topic; rather, your goal should be to assert a point of view on your topic or take a position in a debate: in other words, the thesis must be an argument.
Under no circumstances is it ok to submit work that you have submitted before or that you are submitting for another class.

Topic Suggestions
These topic descriptions are meant to be prompts to help you come up with a thesis. If you have a topic you are interested in that is not listed below, that is fine, but all topics must be checked with me at the end of week 11.
Also, I would really appreciate it if you would avoid overused research topics such as cyberbullying, social media addiction, online vs. face-to-face learning, steroid use in sports, problems with genetically modified foods, etc. (unless you can come up with something really new and specific!).
What parallels and differences are there between the current Covid pandemic and the Spanish Influenza pandemic in the early 20th century? What can we learn by comparing these events?
What should be done about the plastic waste accumulation in the world’s oceans?
Should California (and/or the USA in general) invest in high-speed rail or some other new transportation system? How might a rail or other new transportation system affect the environment, commerce, and human lives?
What at ways we might protect endangered species in the USA such as migratory birds, wolves, etc.?
What should be done in California to prevent and control wildfires?
Are self-driving vehicles realistic for the near future?
How would free early childhood education affect the economy?
What are promising ne​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​w methods of responding to global warming?
What are the arguments for and against getting rid of the filibuster? Where do you stand?
What impact has legalization of marijuana use had in California and other states who have legalized recreational use of marijuana.

Grading
READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY. When I grade your essay, I will be looking at the following criteria, so you should think about these requirements in advance.
Thesis: Your thesis should be arguable and descriptive of what you actually focus on in your essay.
Evidence: Your research paper should have sufficient, relevant, and representative evidence for each of your supporting points. You should have a minimum of 8 sources, and at least 3 of those sources must be scholarly sources (i.e., from reviewed journals, scholarly studies, etc.). Other sources may be from reputable journals, newspapers, and websites (e.g., The Atlantic, the New York Times, the Brookings Institute’s website). ALL of your sources should add significant information to your argument; do not just throw sources into your essay on general or irrelevant points. Quotes should generally be introduced with tags (e.g., "According to a recent study by Harvard scientist . . . ") and discussed in terms of the argument you are making. NEVER begin a paragraph with a quote.
Reasoning: Make sure that you explain how evidence supports your points and how conclusions are drawn from the evidence.
Organization: Supporting ideas, explanation, and examples should be is grouped appropriately. Also make sure that you maintain a clear focus on your thesis throughout the essay and provide effective transitions between paragraphs and key points.
Language: Most of the paper should be in your own words. When you refer to content from sources, use paraphrase, perhaps in combination with a few significant quoted words, rather than lengthy quotes. Extended quotations should rarely be used. Keep quoted material to less than 20% of your essay. Your writing style should be objective, formal, concise, and precise. Before handing in your final publish, spend several hours examining your sentences for clarity and correctness.
MLA documentation: All in-text citations and Works Cited page entries should be correctly formatted. Do not forget that you must format the Works Cited page entries using a hanging indent. Only those sources you have used in your paper with an in-text citation should be cited.
MLA document format: Make sure your entire essay is double spaced. No extra lines anywhere. Works Cited page entries must be formatted with a hanging inde​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​nt.
