However, remember a few crucial demands of each area:
Content—Do not stray from the question. Your answer should be your thesis statement, and you must directly engage with the primary text(s) and support
your claims throughout your writing with scholarly/reputable sources.
Structure—Do not submit a solid piece of text without indentations, paragraphs breaks, etc. You must guide your readers with a traditional essay exam
Style/Tone—Do not use a conversational tone or language. Use a formal style and the third person narrative.
Editing—Be as clear and concise as possible.
MLA—Cite your secondaries properly to ensure that plagiarism is never suspected.
Select ONE prompt from the list below. Address it effectively with a specific thesis statement and ample academic evidence to support your claims in at
least 500 words. Non-academic sources are not acceptable. The use of at least three secondary sources is required, and they must be cited correctly in-text
throughout your answer and on the Work Cited page. (The materials I provide in the course DO NOT count towards your secondary sources). NOTE: The
above criteria is the minimum requirements for the assignment. If you wish to do well, go above and beyond the stated demands of the exam. For example,
while no scores are guaranteed, most “A” exams are three times the required length (1500 words) and use three times the amount of sources (9).

logic, the primary text, and academic secondary sources. Cite the latter two types of evidence appropriately in-text.
use atleast 5-6 secondary sources
