Your Assignment

Pressroom of the New York Times

Your assignment: Write a research essay of 2500-3000 words that thoroughly describes, investigates and analyzes the topic you have been following this semester in The New York Times. The paper should be answering a research question that you have posed, and the scope should be sufficiently narrowed for intelligent coverage in the allotted space.

In addition to 4-7 sources from The New York Times, you will also need to find and use 4-7 credible and persuasive sources other than the Times.

You will be using MLA style for your citations.
