Guide for Social Issue Essay
Start with an interesting question, a significant quote, a bold statement, or an interesting fact/statistic about your social issue (grab the reader’s attention). If you use words or ideas from a third source, be sure to add the appropriate documentation. Discuss the importance of the social issue. Why does it matter? Who is affected? Be general in your introduction. End the introduction with a thesis statement (implicit or explicit).
Body Paragraph Organization
1. Topic sentence that mentions the social issue and the subtopic (the connection between the sources). 2. Provide another sentence that continues with the idea within your topic sentence. 3. Introduce the source and provide your evidence and citation.
4. Analyze the evidence in relation to the topic sentence. (Asking how and why and other interviewer questions) 5. Provide a transition that suggests a similarity and introduce the other source (also provide your evidence and citation). 6. Synthesize the sources. Make the connection between the sources. State it. Don’t make the reader have to come up with the connection. This is your goal for the body paragraph.
Restate the thesis. Ask NOW WHAT? What can people do to help society overcome this social issue? Consider how the world would be a better place if the social issue did not exist.
Go to the article in the database and copy the citation. Minimal changes need to be made to it: make sure the important words are capitalized, make sure the name of the database is italicized, etc. Use Purdue OWL for the OER reading in order to create the citation. If you are not what type of electronic source your OER reading is, just ask me during class or via email.
Below are the 2 sources you will need to use, the articles are about fake news so you will have to have at least 3 things that are similar and that’s what you will talk about in the body paragraphs
