Computer science
Assessment

This project, which represents 20% + 10% (presentation) of your total course mark, assesses your ability:

·      To learn the fundamental principles of information systems analysis and design.
·      To develop the skills necessary to conduct a requirements determination study.
·      To learn the principles and techniques of the system development life cycle.

Should the Sale of Human Organs be LegalWe undertake research when we wish to explore an idea, probe an issue, solve a problem, or make an argument
that compels us to turn to outside help. We then seek out, investigate, and use materials beyond our personal
resources. The argumentative research essay presents the findings and conclusions of such an inquiry.
A research essay should not just review publications and extract a series of quotations from them. Rather, you
should look for sources that provide innovative or cutting-edge information. However, always remember that
the main purpose of doing research is not to summarize the work of others, but to assimilate and build on it
and to arrive at your own understanding of the subject. What new discovery do you make?
Your paper will begin with a debatable thesis or claim–something that people could reasonably have differing
opinions on. You'll establish your specific stance and then explore your sources to provide sufficient support or
reasoning behind your claim to CONVINCE your audience to either change their thinking or act in some way.
This essay should be 7-9 pages in length with seven outside sources included on Works Cited page. These
sources should include at least one book, one pop culture source, one popular article, one scholarly article, and
one interview..
Critical Thinking: Always digest, analyze, interpret, and evaluate what you are saying. Effective signal
phrases may include: “This means that,” “In other words,” “What it all boils down to,” “Given these facts,”
“Here, one can see,” “Anderson acknowledges, comments, endorses, reports, etc. (See signal phrases handout.)
 Avoid signal phrases like “Personally, I think that,” “As we can see,” In my judgment,” “Personally, in
my opinion, I think”
 Provide status quo information to demonstrate that you are aware of the popular thinking nowadays that
is related to your topic. (“the existing state of affairs”)
 Incorporate cutting-edge information to show that you are presenting the most recent and innovative
thinking about your topic. (“the most up-to-date findings”)
 Explore the causes of the issue as well as possible solutions or new ways of looking at your topic.
Provide a future consequence.
 Pop Culture Connection: Provide connections to movies, TV shows, documentaries, blogs, videos,
films, commercials, podcasts)
 Personal Examples: Give examples of what you are saying. Connect what you have elaborated with
concrete situations in the real world.
Guidelines
 7-9 page research essay (minimum of 7 full pages before graphics, work cited, reflection added).
 Additional work cited page (do not include summaries from annotated bibliography. Citations only).
 Include a half page reflection on the entire research process. Which assignments were most helpful?
What challenges did you face? How did you overcome those challenges?
 one-inch margins; Times Roman, 12-point font.
 At least 3 graphics (pictures, charts, diagrams, etc.)

Writing Project Three – “A Critical Response to a Reading”

First Double Spaced Typed Draft Due: Thursday, July 24th (2 ½ to 3 pages in
Times New Roman/Arial, 12 point font)

Double Spaced Typed Final Draft Due: Tuesday, July 29th (2 ½ to 3 pages in
(in folder with additional documents) Times New Roman/Arial, 12 point font)

Skills: Thesis and Support, Unity, Coherence, and Acknowledging a Source Formally (in MLA format)

Textbook Reference(s): Chapter 6, “Writing to Respond”

Topic:

For Writing Project Three you will select one of the readings below and write an essay that presents the author’s purpose, along with your own perspective on what the author is trying to prove with their work. You may agree with, disagree with, or agree and disagree with the author’s thesis. For example, if the author argues that failing is the path to success, you may have the thesis: Failing is the path to success for some, but not for others.
Your perspective on what the author is arguing is your thesis for Writing Project Three. This project is a thesis and support essay where you will persuade your readers of your point of view using detailed and specific examples from the text and your own experience. You may also make use of other development methods you have learned throughout the semester (close reading, observation, fieldwork, and citing sources).

Since you are responding to something you have read, early in your essay (like in the introductory paragraph) you will summarize the reading for your audience and explain any concepts your readers may not understand, but this should not take up a large part of your essay, one brief paragraph (4-6 sentences in length) of summary is enough. (Remember I have read the readings as well.) Then, you will follow this summary with your own view, in the form of a thesis statement (located at the end of your introductory paragraph). Finally, you’ll need to support and prove your thesis with examples based on the text, current knowledge, experience and/or opinion.

Another requirement of this project is that you incorporate quotes/paraphrases from the reading that are correctly introduced and that address your thesis. You need to properly cite your quotes/paraphrases in-text, using MLA format. (We will go over this in class.)
Remember your thesis response may either support or oppose the author’s perspective; or, you may agree with some points made by the author, but not other points. Your primary objective with Writing Project Three is to establish a thesis and support it with relevant and effective examples from the reading.

Readings From Which To Choose (only one):

1. “The Thin Grey Line,” pages 205-207
2. “The Myth of the Latin Woman: ‘I Just Met a Girl Named Maria,’” pages 210-215
3. “The Men We Carry in Our Minds,” pages 227-230

5 Major Components of Writing Project Three:

1. Writing a critical essay in response to one of the readings from the list above.

2. Having an introductory paragraph briefly summarizing the reading you selected.

3. Ending your introductory paragraph with a thesis statement you support and prove throughout your essay with examples from the reading, fieldwork, and/or your own experience.

4. Incorporating quotes/paraphrases from the reading and citing them in-text in MLA format.

5. A Work Cited reference in MLA format at the end of your essay.

Grading:
A copy of the rubric used for the grading of this essay has been made available to you. If you have any questions or concerns, remember to see your instructor in office hours, and/or make an appointment with the Writing Center as soon as possible.

Final Draft Folder:

On the cover of your Final Draft Folder you need to clearly write (either in dark pen, marker, or on a label) your name, your class, and the time. In the folder you should include:

o A stapled and labeled final draft of your Writing Project

o The Peer Review done on your Writing Project, along with the draft given to your reviewer (stapled together)

o In-text citations in proper MLA format, as well as a Work/s Cited reference at the end of your essay

o An outline of your essay (not the essay you chose to write about), done after your peer review draft is finished (Formal Outline format on page 21)

o All other drafts (both handwritten and/or typed), brainstorming, and/or revisions done on your Writing Project
