ENG 1100 Research Essay

I’m trying to study for my English course and I need some help to understand this question.

Write an argumentative research essay, 1750-2000 words in length, focused on a topic of your

choosing. The topic you select must be something about which you can find relevant scholarly

research, and its focus must be narrow enough to fit within the required length of the paper. If

you have any doubts about the quality of the topic you have selected, speak with the leader of

your discussion group at the earliest opportunity (in person or via email). Possible topics include

(but are by no means limited to) examining an energy issue within Canada, the treatment of

mental health within a prison system, the contemporary use of the term “terrorism,” the

gendering of children’s toys, and so on.

One of the core requirements of this essay is the inclusion of at least three (3) scholarly

secondary sources (defined in class). If you are unsure if your sources are scholarly, contact your

discussion group leader to check. You may additionally use other, non-scholarly sources, but be

very careful not to choose ones of poor quality. You are responsible for evaluating the quality of

all of your research.

To be successful, your essay must have an argumentative thesis, and it must engage your

research in service to that argument. You will be required to handle your sources responsibly,

which means both accurately citing them and taking care not to misrepresent them. Be careful

not to allow the voices and ideas of the authors of your research sources to overtake your own

voice and the point that you are making (i.e., do not fail to explain the relevance of and analyze

the things you cite).

Once again, your essay will be marked based on the following criteria: the quality of your thesis,

the organization of your essay, the relevance of your evidence, the coherency and detail of your

analysis, the technical quality of your writing. In addition, you will be evaluated on the quality

and use of your research. You must quote, cite, and provide references following MLA or APA

guidelines.

Your essay must be submitted in Brightspace as a Word or PDF document with the following

formatting, adhering to MLA or APA style guidelines:

– Font: Times New Roman

– Font Size: 12 pt.

– Margins: 1 inch

– Spacing: Double
