Business is my academic discipline
Length: 1500-2000 words (not including Works Cited) in MLA format, 12-point font, double-spaced
Source limit: Three (3) scholarly and two (2) popular sources (5 sources total)
Must include a “Works Cited” page and use correct MLA format for in-text (parenthetical) citations.
For this assignment, write an essay that examines an issue of importance of my academic discipline. I’ll be graded on your ability to present an informed, effective argument that demonstrates my understanding of the subject, displays the research into its issues, effectively uses source material (in summary, paraphrase, and cogent quotations), and reaches logical, substantiated conclusions based on well-organized and subordinated claims.
At least five sources (three scholarly and two popular) must be cited in the final draft of the Academic Essay. The drafts are expected to contain a cogent, well-formed argument based on that preliminary work and to be presented in the MLA style, which is a required, graded element of this assignment.
Five (5) scholarly (e.g., Journal of the American Medical Association) and popular sources (e.g., Popular Science). These sources must constitute “academic” work, or the sources must at least come from credible sources. You may use online sources, but you should make absolutely certain these sources are both authentic and credible. **Do not use Wikipedia or Sparknotes.**
