PREPARING FOR THE ESSAY:

Ideally, you should begin by selecting a topic of interest to you, and then reviewing the course outline and your notes. Identify at least two course readings that are relevant to your topic, and reread them carefully. Identify concepts that you’ve learned in the course that might be connected with your topic.

Next, you should identify 1-2 primary or secondary* sources from outside the course that can substantially contribute to your understanding of the topic. Note that only reputable scholarly sources (eg. peer reviewed journals, books from well-reputed publishers of scholarly work, scholarly translations of primary sources) are acceptable for this assignment.

Next, you must formulate a thesis that responds to your chosen topic. Develop an argument to prove your thesis. Your essay should clearly express your position using your chosen sources to support your claims.

All sources, including course material, should be listed in your bibliography using MLA style. All in-text references to ideas other than your own, both direct and indirect, need to be cited correctly, according to style guides.
