Submit your essay as a Word document (or equivalent). Do not submit a PDF.
Submit your polished, proofread issue essay here only after you can answer “yes” to all of the following:
Is your paper at least about about 750-1,000 words? (It can be longer.)
Does your introduction paragraph include a thesis statement, i.e., a statement of the main point (conclusion) your paper will support?
Remember that a thesis statement is not the question your paper is about; it is your answer to the question.
Does the body of your paper provide a clear, organized, coherent argument in support of your thesis, i.e., does it provide relevant and clearly-explained reasons why we should accept your conclusion?
Does your concluding paragraph sum up your argument?
Have you placed all quotes in quotation marks?
Have you included citations for all quotes and ideas drawn from any source?
Have you included a bibliography/works cited page listing all of your sources?
Have you proofread your paper at least once?
