Requirements of the research essay:
1. Thoroughly research your issue. Use credible sources. The library and library
databases are the safest place to find sources. Beware of random websites that
may have inaccurate information. You must use at least three scholarly, peer-
reviewed articles in this essay.
2. The final draft must include at least 5 outside sources and be 6+ pages in MLA
format. Your essay must include a works cited page.
3. Clearly introduce and follow up all quoted and paraphrased material; show
readers how your sources support and prove your points, so they do not have to
make those connections on their own.
4. With any formal academic essay, you are expected to use the appropriate tone,
point of view, style, and diction.While you may use “I,” for example when
providing a personal experience, for example, avoid using the second person
(“you”).Formal academic essays, unless otherwise instructed, are usually written
in the third person.
5. Document each source you use: note the author and page number and list the
source on the Works Cited page to avoid plagiarism. This MUST be done if you
quote, summarize, or paraphrase a source.
6. The essay also requires an annotated bibliography,
