For this week’s VSP, you are tasked with the following:
Read the above article, then, in text of the paper, introduce the title and author of your choice of reading, summarize the reading briefly, define the argument(s) or persuasive point (s) within the reading that the author is making, and respond to the reading using specific evidence from one researched source (the author and title of which you also name) that supports or opposes some claim you are making, with proper MLA in-text citations for your quoted evidence (for reference, our library’s article databases on which you may conduct your research are available here) (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.. In addition, you must include “long form” Works Cited citations for both your reading and your outside source on a separate page.
If you are unsure about your “response” to the reading, or if you are unsure where to start you response, you may consider whether the reading corresponds with any of the class themes (see Week 1 Module). VSPs must be a minimum of 300 words and, in addition to containing proper MLA citations, must use proper MLA page formatting where it concerns page numbers, student name, instructor name, class number, date and title. Also, make sure the document is double-spaced between lines.
Submissions must be made in either .doc, .docx, or .pdf format.
A rubric has been made available to facilitate your understanding of how the paper will be graded; it is available below.
