You will be writing an essay with the research that you have investigated on your subject. After choosing a topic, you will gather the information that you wish to use for your essay and arrange it in a format like this:
|Outline||Exact information from source||Information paraphrased/
|I. Intro – Thesis statement|
|II. Main idea #1|
|III. Main idea #2|
|IV. Main idea #3|
You will turn in a table like the one above that will be graded like this:
Congruent outline – 5 points – The main ideas are related and organized in a way those make sense to the main thrust of the essay.
Cohesive Thesis – 5 points – You specifically mention your main ideas in your thesis and do not say “I am going to talk about…”
Exact information from source- 6 points – You cut and paste only the relevant parts of your research to this section of the table. You may have a lot of information and as a result, the table seems lopsided. That’s ok, but try to weed out what you don’t need before you turn this in. You will use this table and only this table when you write your essay so make it “user-friendly”
Information paraphrased/summed up – 4 points – Use this to help you make your writing day easier. If you want to put phrases (not whole sentences) here that you can use in your essay, you may.
Citations – 5 points – These may be from Wikipedia and at least one other source. You must give me enough information (url, author, title of book, journal, etc.) so that I may easily locate where you got this information.

Conclusion. Do you restate your thesis and then highlight why this information is so important? Do you answer the question, “so what?”—in other words, what is the relevance to culture? Is this paragraph 3-5 sentences long? 5 points
