    • Brainstorm a topic
      • Narrow the topic
      • Develop a thesis statement
    • Research
      • Use print and non-print sources (.gov; .edu; .org sites are the best)
      • Develop note cards (follow template provided in BB)
    • Pre-write
      • Develop an outline based on your thesis (2-4 main ideas)
    • Draft
    • Revise
    • Repeat 2 – 5 as needed
    • Submit the final essay
  • Persuasive essays
    • Make an argument for a particular position on an important issue
    • Convince the audience, your readers, to agree with your position or take action
    • Use facts, data, statistics, and quotes from reputable “experts” in the field to make your argument
  • Incorporating research
    • Your essay should not be a rehash of research
    • It is your point of view and your argument
    • However, use research to back up your argument
    • Be sure to explain, in your own words, how the research you are using proves your argument
    • Good formula for a body paragraph
      • Your topic sentence
      • Citations from the research that proves your topic sentence argument
      • Your own explanation of how the research explains your topic sentence
  • MLA format
    • MLA format internally cites the source you are using.
    • You put the author’s last name (when available) or a shortened version of the title in parenthesis after you quote, summarize, or paraphrase a source.
    • You then include a full Works Cited page.
      • Easybib.com is excellent for developing a works cited page.
      • With easybib.com, you identify the type of source you are using, plug-in the data available on the source, and then it will create a correct MLA citation for you
      • You can export it automatically into a word document
  • Please check out this presentation
    • The following website gives you a detailed summary on putting together an essay with MLA format
      • http://faculty.nl.edu/cad/presentations/Basic%20MLA%20Formatting.htm
    • Please note, if you do not use MLA format, you will not master this unit, unit 2.
