STELTZ ENGLISH 101 IS NOW USING THIS MAIN/UMBRELLA TOPIC
(and your subtopics/zooming in focus will fit nicely under it):
Humans Have Had a Negative Global Impact on Planet Earth: We Must Reduce Our Essential Resources Use for a healthier and more sustainable planet.
Final essays will adhere to the departmental parameters listed below:
The paper’s thesis must be arguable and the essay must build an argument to support the thesis
The paper must thoroughly engage with the common readings in more than a “touch and go” fashion
The paper must be 4 full – 5 pages maximum in length (+citation page is then the 5th or 6th page alone)
The paper must make use of the 3 – 5 credible, college-level sources, including the already chosen common readings; students are asked to adhere to this limit
You are striving for an A or B grade:
Better than adequate if all are true (student has done more than required, would earn an A if graded)
No grammatical or typographical errors and correct words are chosen.
Paper is 4-5 FULL pages in length, typed and double-spaced and #12 font, with proper essay format on pg. 1 and last name and page number on each pg. (and citation page is on the 5th or 6th page). Thesis statement is clear; at least 5 support points are developed throughout the paper’s argument and solutions. Paper concludes with a form of thesis restatement (but not repeated) and an argument/research conclusion.
In-text sourcing is present for all works cited (whether paraphrasing, quoting, or summarizing).
The specified 3 -5 sources (no more) are present on the works cited page in proper MLA format, including the required articles (this would be your page 5 or 6).
