Directions: Use what you have learned about argumentative logic and language in this class, as well as your own observations, ideas, and experiences — and the sources that you have already analyzed in your homework assignments — to write an essay on the Official English debate.
Your essay should include the following items:
Each use of material or ideas from one of the outside sources should be properly cited TWICE, with an in-text citation and on the works cited page.
Failure to cite a source is plagiarism! If you plagiarize, you will receive a zero for the assignment.
Use consistent formatting for your citations – MLA, APA, or another system that you are familiar with – throughout your essay.
Give your essay a descriptive title – that means you will call it something different than “Essay #1”. You do not have to include a heading with your name, my name, etc. as the essay is submitted to Canvas
Double-space and use a plain, black, 12 point font.
Proofread your essay carefully and submit it to Canvas by the specified due date/time.
Grading: Your assignment will be graded according to the rubric below. Note that this assignment is used to assess a course learning outcome; this assessment is based on your grade and is for reporting purposes only. The rating you receive has no effect on your assignment or your course grade.
