7. Research: Tying it All Together

We have been spending the semester looking at all the different rules and regulations regarding researched writing. Now it is time to put all that to use. You need to incorporate research into your argumentative paper. You need to show your reader (me, in this case) that you have found valid evidence from other sources. That means you have to have proper parenthetical citations for borrowed ideas and information (not general knowledge), and you have to have a solid Works Cited page that corresponds with the citations. I will be checking on sources, so make sure they are accurate, that I can find them. If I can’t, you haven’t done the Works Cited accurately.
