You will have the opportunity to submit an essay plan for evaluation prior to submitting your final completed essay. This plan will follow a specific structure shown to you during your lectures and tutorials. Your preliminary plan will include: 1. An introductory paragraph to your essay, including an argumentative thesis statement. 2. Three topic sentences to introduce the key ideas for planned paragraphs within your essay; these sentences must include intext references to acknowledge the scholarly literature that informed them. 3. Two correctly cited endtext references (using APA/ECU conventions) from current (no older than 2010), scholarly literature. You will need to provide a brief explanation for each of your selected resources. Your explanations should include: • a short summary of the article (12 sentences), and • a brief description of how the article will support your argument/thesis statement (12 sentences).
