The Academic Research Essay
ENGL 1302: Decision-Making in the Age of Social Media
Length & Format: At least 1,000 words (not including Works Cited) in MLA format, Times New
Roman 12-point font, double-spaced. You must include a “Works Cited” page and use correct MLA
format for in-text (parenthetical) citations.
Topic: You may choose any topic so long as it specifically relates to our class theme.
Five Academic Sources: These sources must be derived from the RLC online library database or an
RLC library book, chapter, section, etc.
Description: You will assert an argument about a topic (thesis), and you will validate your argument with
reasons and supporting evidence from academic sources.
Reading & Pre-Writing Strategy:
Take notes and brainstorm in your Writer’s Notebook. Outline your ideas.
Writing Strategy:
Building upon your short preliminary outline, you should incorporate the components of an academic
research essay. These components correspond with the grading criteria:
1. Introduction Paragraph should include: a. Hook/Attention grabber-(question/rhetorical
question, anecdote, surprising statement, or a declarative); b. Significance-explains how the hook
relates to the thesis; and c. Thesis statement-A one-sentence, overall argument that you assert or
your take-away message—a “should”-type statement.
2. Background information paragraph-objective, neutral paragraph that provides preliminary
information on your topic
3, 4, & 5. Reason Paragraphs: These are argumentative paragraphs that link to and break down
your thesis statement. These paragraphs should include:
a. A “reason” topic sentence. A reason provides a “why” or “because” the thesis statement
is true. This sentence states the overall meaning or concept covered in the paragraph.
b. Evidence from a source (ie. statistics, studies, expert opinion, charts, graphs, publication,
etc.)
You must provide an in-text citation at the end of EVERY sentence where you
summarize, paraphrase, or quote information from the image. You may quote only up
to one line on your page. Otherwise, paraphrase. For images, an in-text citation should
include the author’s last name and page numbers: (Jullian 57). If no author is listed, then
you should include the article’s title in quotes: (“Justice and Gender” 57). If no page
numbers are listed, then don’t add anything: (Jullian) or (“Justice and Gender).
c. Analysis of the evidence. This information explains how the evidence you used relates to
the reason. Analysis answers the following questions: So what? Why does it matter?
Who cares? Why is it important? What is the big point (what it is)? What is the big
picture (what it means?).
d. A conclusion sentence that summarizes the paragraph.
6. Opposing View/Objection & Rebuttal that provides a counterargument to your thesis statement.
You rebut this counterargument without repeating one of your reasons. This paragraph should include:
a. A transition with topic sentence that addresses your opposing view. Another transition
with your rebuttal to the opposing view. This sentence states the overall meaning or
concept covered in the paragraph.

b. Outside academic source material. You must provide an in-text citation at the end of
EVERY sentence where you summarize, paraphrase, or quote information from the
source. You may quote only up to one line on your page. Otherwise, paraphrase.
Provide in-text citation(s) as stated above.
c. Analysis of the evidence. This information explains how the evidence you used relates to
the reason. Analysis answers the following questions: So what? Why does it matter?
Who cares? Why is it important? What is the big point (what it is)? What is the big
picture (what it means?).
d. A conclusion sentence that summarizes the paragraph.
6. Conclusion paragraph should include: a. Summary of your reasons; 2. Significance-So what?
Why does it matter? Who cares?; and c. Clincher/Conclusion Technique: question, quote, vivid image,
warning, call to action, suggestion of results or consequences, universalization (compare to other
situations)), or coming full circle.
7. Works Cited for our sources, alphabetized and with hanging indentation. For college online
library research databases, click the “Cite” button & select “MLA.”
