I need help with a English question. All explanations and answers will be used to help me learn.
For the final research paper, choose one of the essays we have discussed this semester whose topic interest you enough for you to conduct research on it. Your goal is to present a critical analysis of the text you’ve chosen that uses research you compiled in completing your annotated bibliography to aid in articulating your points. As always, we will thoroughly cover the particulars of the writing process associated with this assignment in class. You must directly engage with the texts you choose and research in formulating your evaluation. This means you will have to make use of direct quotations from and references to the texts you discuss. Use the latest MLA Style Guide for formatting both the citations within your paper (in-text/parenthetical citations) and your “works cited” page at the end of your paper. Consult the Purdue University Online Writing Lab (Purdue OWL) website for detailed help with all aspects of proper MLA style formatting: http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/747/01/ (Links to an external site.)
