Essay Draft #1 Instruction Guide
UHD ENG 1301
Dr. Dawn J. Bradford, Room S1068
The purpose of this Instruction Guide is to give you instructions that will facilitate your Writing Assignment. The Writing Assignment is to provide you with an opportunity to demonstrate your ability to develop an essay that analyzes data and represents your analysis of that data in a factual argumentative structure. Based on your analysis, you will produce claims and evidence that support your factual argument. You will synthesize the evidence presented in your factual argument in a manner that addresses the rhetorical question: Should the Colleges and Universities in the Unites States have plagiarism penalty policies?
The objective for Essay #1 is to be able to argue your position by identifying your audience, stating a clear thesis, using appropriate definitions when necessary, stating claims based on your research and experience, and stating reliable factual evidence to support your claims. You are also required to craft what I call a “compelling conclusion” that causes your audience to be persuaded to behave and think differently because of your effective rhetoric.
