Identify the stronger essay for this assignment, and explain why it stands out to you. Also indicate how you think it could be improved.

Review the E2 assignment sheet. Then read the two sample essays (yes, these were written by real students!). The assignment sheet is in Week 5, and sample essays are both available under Week 6. Each essay has strengths as well as room for improvement.

Read each essay, and determine which is strongest. Then write two paragraphs:

Paragraph 1) Identify the stronger essay for this assignment, and explain why it stands out to you. Also indicate how you think it could be improved. Paragraph 2) What information do you think should be included in your own E2? What info should be included in your thesis?

Write paragraphs which are unified by a main idea.

Purpose

The grade you receive for the rough draft is a small portion of your overall class grade, and you will not be graded on the quality of your writing. Your grade will be based only on whether you meet the minimum requirements specified on the grading rubric below.

The purpose of the rough draft, then, is to give you a chance to get your thoughts on paper so I can offer comments. One of your classmates will also review your rough draft. Then you will be prepared to revise the draft into your best possible final paper.

Instructions

Complete the rough draft as a Word document and submit it to Canvas by the due date.

You are required to include 2-4 in-text citations of outside sources. At….

Choose one of the sets of essays listed below (Kelly and Gladstone together make up a “set”; Carr and Thompson together make up a “set,” etc.). 

Major Writing Project 2

Major Writing Project 2:  Entering a Conversation (4 pages)

Instructions:  Choose one of the sets of essays listed below (Kelly and Gladstone together make up a “set”; Carr and Thompson together make up a “set,” etc.).  Your essay should include summaries of both of the authors’ arguments (“they say”); your argument should point out how the authors agree and disagree; and your argument should include your own response to the issues the two essays raise (“I say”).  The “I say” is your own argument concerning the issues.

Make sure you include a naysayer to show possible objections to your own argument, and address the “so what” factor: why does this issue matter? Make sure you use proper formatting (MLA or APA style, double-spaced, Times or Times New….

Complete the prewriting for the progress report

1. Complete the prewriting for the progress report:

Prewriting prepares you to write and helps you organize your ideas. You may print the lesson and jot notes for yourself on the paper, or you may write notes on your own. You do not have to submit prewriting for any points, but don’t skip this important step!

2. Complete a draft of the progress report:

Remember to use the memo format style in typing this progress report. This report should be two or more pages when you are completed. The draft will be much shorter than your final report. Follow a logical structure: introduction, what is finished, what is underway, what is left to do, and a conclusion. Use specifics such as dates, proper names, numbers, costs, etc. Include….
