I have mcdonalds and i think its more then 2 pages .
The work you did for MA #3 will help you think of a suitable subtopic for a short essay with research. Remember this objective from your course syllabus:
“Select, evaluate, integrate and document support from multiple sources as appropriate for rhetorical situation and genre.”
For MA #3, you selected, evaluated, and documented support, and put them in dialogue with one another using direct quotes.
Now for this assignment, you will do all of the above, but you will also 1) integrate that research into an essay, an essay in which you contribute to the conversation about this topic.
Think about ONE of your research questions from MA #3, one that you are interested in following up on.
Provide your audience with exigency for your topic, and state your thesis. Because the nature of your exploration for MA #3 could have taken you into a lot of different directions, your rhetorical purpose may vary.
To take the research that you have curated and compiled for MA #3, and to use to come up with a main idea for an academic essay of 3 pages.
Think about focusing on a research question that should be addressed in your essay. Review questions in the categories of interpretation, value, policy, consequence.
This research question must be one that is unique. It doesn’t necessarily need to be a debate, and remember that binary debates are artificial. (See thesis section.)
Because this is a short research essay, your thesis must have a direct focus based on all the work you did for MA #3.
The assignment should be at least three pages in length. This length requirement will affect your thesis, as you have to make sure you are not trying to tackle too much. Some students’ thesis statements would be more appropriate for a 20-page paper, or even longer.
Like every other element of the essay, your thesis must be novel and creative. Everything is an argument, but not every argument is a debate. Therefore, don’t think you have to have a thesis that is artificially reduced to a binary—pro/con, yes/no, agree/disagree. Effective thesis statements are nuanced. In the course of class discussion we will look at sample thesis statements.
Body paragraphs need to have structure, development and coherence. The same is true of a lot of academic essays, but when you add research to the mix, this rhetorical task becomes even more difficult because you are often juggling different voices in your writing—including your own! Integration of sources is often the hardest part of writing because you need to make sure that your rhetorical voice is supported—but never overrun—by those who have contributed to the conservation before you.
You’ve done a lot of work so far with the research and the direct citations. Now it’s time to show your audience that you understand those voices enough to put them in your own words to paraphrase and summarize—and quote occasionally—in a responsible, effective way.
You must avoid plagiarism.
You must write prose appropriate for an academic audience. Think carefully about sentence style and appropriate diction.
Here’s a tip a wise person once said: Use the research. Don’t let the research use you. The success of an academic essay depends on how well you use the research, how well you weave the words—and ideas!—of others into your own work.
Conclude by reminding the audience of the exigency of your topic.
Academic audience interested in your topic
Length and format
Essay: 3 pages minimum, MLA format (Times New Roman, 12 pt, 1-inch margins, etc.)
Works Cited and other research concerns
Minimum of four sources must be used in your essay
In-text citations need a corresponding Works Cited entry
The Works Cited page is not part of the three-page minimum.
Don’t make the mistake of thinking quotes speak for themselves. In other words, a research paper is NOT a collection of lengthy quotes. Block quotes—quotes that are four lines or longer—should be avoided. In fact, sometimes a source might only be used briefly for a specific paragraph in your paper. Sometimes, less is more. Again, remember the analogy of the conversation.
Notes on source integration, adapted from Alfano and O’Brien:
“Remember to ask yourself:
Am I still the moderator of this conversation?
Is my voice clear, compelling and original?
Do I allow my own argument to emerge as the foremost in this piece?” (191)
Your approach to integrating sources should be one of a “synthesizer of information,” so achieve this goal, you must consider the most effective ways to integrate your sources. Please note that there is no one correct way to include the voices of others. There is no template. Students often ask questions like, “When should I paraphrase? When should I insert a quotation? When should I include a summary of a text? How do I know when I’m relying too much on the words and ideas of others?” These are all important questions to ask yourself as you compose a paper with research (191).
