I’m asking that you submit a 4-5 page (double spaced) Issues Essay in size 12 pt. font (preferably Times New Roman or Calibri) that accounts for argument and persuasion, research, and is of personal interest to you. Do not choose something that is common knowledge nor do I want an informational research essay (AKA it does not contain an argument but merely states facts). I would also ask that you submit it as a Word document or a PDF so that I may open it in Microsoft Word or Adobe Acrobat Reader. This will be your first draft, which I will edit and return to you with comments. As this paper is longer in nature, you need not have completed all 4-5 pages for the first draft. Just give me what you have so far and I will gladly comment on that. Thanks.
