Module 4, Research

Rough Draft Continued...

Rough draft!

Continue to work on your rough draft which is due on Monday! If you are able to get it completed before Monday, then I will score it over the weekend. Please make sure you are on track and are using your time wisely as next week is the last week for this quarter. If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know! I know that everyone is working hard on their paper and cannot wait to see the wonderful pieces you turn in next week!


Be sure to follow the guidelines as you work on this draft:

  1. double-spaced
  2. typed in 12 point TNR font
  3. 3-5 pages
  4. strong persuasive thesis
  5. no personal voice (no I, We)
  6. no rhetorical questions (your argument is much stronger when you make strong statements, not when you ask questions)
  7. it does NOT address the reader (no YOU)
  8. all quotations have been properly incorporated and cited (follows MLA end note citation rules; NO URLS) If you need a refresher, check out this site: https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/747/01/
  9. a clear argument that sustains itself throughout the paper
  10. a solid conclusion that wraps up the introduction. No new ideas are introduced in the conclusion.
