Select a beverage trend of interest in order to research and prepare a minimum 4-page paper identifying and explaining its influence.
The student is required to prepare an expository (explanatory) paper that explains something to the audience. This paper is a piece of academic writing that requires a more abstract, critical, and thoughtful level of inquiry. Images and pictures may be included to support the relevancy of the trend. However, it should be understood that excessive pictures/images or ones that are overly large to take away from the content and substance of the text will be deducted points at the discretion of the instructor.
Once a topic has been solidified, research it from multiple (quality-oriented) sources and various aspects. An essay should be prepared that includes: Three major sections:
1) Cover Page, 2) Main Body (intro, body, conclusion), and 3) References.
Format – The research trend paper should be typed (12-point font, times new roman), double-spaced on standard-sized paper (8.5″ x 11″) with 1″ margins on all sides. The paper should be four-to-five pages in length, not including the title and reference page. Cover page should include: Students name, course name, selected trends. All borrowed information from published sources needs to be cited.
