You will write an essay in which you take a position on the social/political issue you have chosen. You will present a clear thesis indicating your position, which will control/guide the essay. It should be based on your research of the causes and effects of the “problem,” followed by a carefully considered solution(s). You do not need to create your own solution, but discuss a proposal or two that you find most promising, or perhaps a combination. Your paper should be approx. 2000 words, approx. 7 pages with at least as many sources (at least 7-8).
Your paper should rely on 7-8 sources from your research including:
Cite your sources using MLA format.
If you need more help with your research, contact a librarian by chat, phone, email, or in person, or explore the library's online tutorials.
