Write a 1,400- to 1,750-word draft of your paper, based on the topic you selected, your research in Week 2, and your thesis and outline from Week 3. Ensure that you do the following while drafting your paper:
- Review the relevance, reliability, and objectivity of your sources.
- Revise thesis statements and topic sentences as appropriate.
- Demonstrate effective summarizing and paraphrasing of your sources.
- Use a minimum of four peer-reviewed sources.
Note: If you are writing on a topic that is part of an ongoing debate, your argument must address all sides of the issue, and must represent and persuasively respond to positions different from your own.
If you are writing on a relatively new or unknown topic, part of your task will be educating your readers on this topic and proving that it is worthy of serious public debate.
Review your essay for effective use of basic English grammar, word usage, and sentence style before turning in your paper.
Format your paper consistent with appropriate course-level APA guidelines
