Choose a Topic
Compose a 8- 10 page research paper on a topic of your choice. The subject of your paper should provide you with ample opportunities for research, since you will be required to use five to seven references to prove your thesis. In addition, you should select a dynamic topic that allows you to conduct research on multiple sides of the issue. The final paper should be formatted according to MLA guidelines.
Topic of Choice Research Paper should contain the following elements:
- An introduction and a thesis statement
- A body with supporting evidence and in-text citations
- A conclusion
- A works cited page with at least five to seven sources
Remember, this essay is different than a persuasive research essay- here you give the reader un-biased information on a topic. Your opinion does not belong- thus it will be best to choose a topic that you are neutral on or would like to learn more.
