Essay Assignment 1: Source Evaluation ENG 1102
Style and format: MLA
Since the first day of class, you’ve been considering topics that you would like to research over the course of the semester. This assignment is the first step in creating this semester’s research project.
For this assignment, you will need to find a relevant source for your topic; you will be evaluating this source in order to determine whether or not it is, indeed, a good, useful source.
Aim to write a strong, well-planned essay that evaluates the source on the following range of criteria:
●logos ●relevance to your research project
*YOU MUST INCLUDE AT LEAST ONE PARAGRAPH THAT EVALUATES THE SOURCE’S AUTHOR ON THE BASIS OF HIS OR HER CREDIBILITY.
Question for consideration:
How does the source you have selected fit into the larger conversation of the topic that you will be investigating? For instance, if you are going to be writing about psychological disorders in children, then you may wish to consider how an article about Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) could fit into the overarching discussion on childhood mental illness or medical over-diagnosis.
Please refer back to these instructions periodically throughout the writing process to ensure you are addressing the assignment requirements.
