Essay Assignment

Writing Assignment

That Catalog Description defines the purpose and goals of our class. The textbook we are using

supports these purposes and goals. This first week, we are not using our textbook, although you

WILL need it the second week.

For our Week 1 assignment, you are to write an expository essay. Expository basically means

to explain or inform – to present information about a subject. This type of writing is based on

facts and is free of personal prejudices and beliefs – UNLESS those are backed by facts. In its

simplest form, an expository essay contains:

• Introduction, that introduces the central idea/article/subject that you will discuss in your

essay

• Main Body, where you present evidence and information. This is the main part, the

‘meat’ of the essay, and should be the longest section of your essay.

• Conclusion, your summation and closing

• **The central purpose of an expository essay is to prove/support an argument or idea.**

As expressed in our Catalog Description, we will study systems analysis, and the things that

pertain to that subject. For your writing assignment, you are to find a specific current technology

topic, such as those discussed in the three links I have included below (they are several years old,

but still good topics). Research the topic you have chosen, such as the many lawsuits against

Uber. Research the topic you have chosen, NOT the article, the TOPIC. Research means

locating and reading information from various websites, such as Forbes, Time, news websites,

company websites themselves, Fortune, etc. Once you have read about and understand your

topic, write an essay using the guidelines below.

Your paper should consist of:

• A current specific technology topic – you are not going to base your paper off an article,

you base it off the IDEA or TOPIC behind the article. For example, the article “Uber’s

never-ending stream of lawsuits” is not the basis of your essay, it is the beginning of your

research on the TOPIC.

• The three main parts of an expository essay above

• 800 words in length – less than the required count will result in a lesser grade *note* this

document has 658 words

• Double spaced, 12pt font, 1” margins

• Include either a header or footer with your name and page number

• Contain a cover page and a references page

• Use citations when needed -- I’m not the Citation Police so relax

Page 2 of 2

• Free of grammar/spelling errors

I shared a generic Writing Assignment Rubric that is in the Course Files tab in BlackBoard.

Basically, use complete sentences, but the list above is what I’m concerned with, not your

sentence structure. Your completed paper will be submitted through the BlackBoard link under

the Week 1 folder in the Assignments tab.

*NOTE* As mentioned, you can write this using your native language.

**VERY IMPORTANT**

Wikipedia is “written collaboratively by largely anonymous volunteers who write without pay.

Anyone with Internet access can write and make changes to Wikipedia articles, except in limited

cases where editing is restricted to prevent disruption or vandalism. Users can contribute

anonymously, under a pseudonym, or, if they choose to, with their real identity.” (Wikipedia:

About, 2015)

Wikipedia is a site for general understanding and is not a citable source. As it is not a citable

source, using it as such will result in a Failing grade on that assignment. This is my class policy;

your other instructors will have their own policies concerning citable and reliable sources.
