Final essay checklist

We're getting down to the end of the semester, and you should be proceeding along with your final essay. At this point, I've enjoyed keeping track of your blogs and postings as you conduct your research and begin your writing.

The final essay will be due Monday, Jan. 14 at the beginning of class. Remember, it's your final essay so don't procrastinate or make a solid effort to write it well.

As you prepare the final draft, please remember the requirements of the essay:
  • At least five pages of well-written prose that follows standard written conventions
  • A compelling introduction that grabs a reader's attention -as explained here
  • An essay body that fully develops your topic and focus
  • At least five sources cited and mentioned in your essay
  • A works cited page with all sources

Good luck and enjoy.
