. This draft will demonstrate the argument and writing techniques studied in the course and will build upon the steps you have taken in all the previous weeks toward developing your Argument Research Paper. This draft is expected to meet all of the Argument Research Essay requirements for writing, content, length, and sources.

Writing Requirements for the Argument Research Essay First Draft, Due in Week 5, and for the Argument Essay Final Draft, Due in Week 7

  • Correct use of APA guidelines for the following:
  • Headers with pagination
  • Title Page
  • Margins, spacing, and paragraph indentation
  • APA in-text citation and referencing for all sources
  • Do not divide your essay into sections.
  • Do not use headings within your paper to indicate changes in topic. While longer APA essays and particular types of APA writing, such as scholarly articles, employ APA-style bolded headings to divide portions of the writing, you are writing a shorter academic essay. Your shift from one paragraph to the next should be signaled through your use of the effective transition and topic sentence rules we have practiced.
  • 6-8 full pages for the essay itself, not including title page or references
  • Effective structure, including your introduction paragraph, your body paragraphs, and your conclusion paragraph
  • Use of third-person throughout. Focus on the topic, not on you nor on the essay. In other words: no first-person “I,” and no referring to the essay, such as “In this essay.”
  • At least 5 scholarly sources visibly used, cited, and referenced
  • Refer to the full Argument Research Essay Rubric

Your instructor will grade and offer feedback on this draft to help set you up toward additional success with your final draft in Week 7. In Week 6, you will post your draft to your peer review group area in discussion to also receive their feedback.

Grading: This activity will be graded using the Argument Research Essay Rubric.

Course Outcomes (CO): 3, 5, 6

This criterion is linked to a Learning OutcomeSources: Application and Integration8 ptsEach time a source is used within the essay, it is well-previewed in the student’s voice and is smoothly integrated with a signal phrase or with correct integration into a student’s sentence. Each time a source is used, it is highly relevant to the point at hand and is effective in the context of the argument. The student has chosen to paraphrase or quote according to best practices.

Sources are cited directly after use, never at the end of the paragraph.6.8 ptsAlmost every time a source is used within the essay, it is well-previewed in the student’s voice and is smoothly integrated with a signal phrase or with correct integration into a student’s sentence.

This criterion is linked to a Learning OutcomeEssay Conclusion8 ptsThe conclusion is succinct and powerful, avoiding verbatim repetition of material from the introduction or from the paper.
