Avoid the use of internet sources, .org/.com/.net, encyclopedias, wiki, dictionaries, and freshman text books in college papers (except for government text, which are a federal database and too large to use for all sources). A library tour was arranged to teach the value of and how to find databases, which are the sources required for academic work
An effective argumentative essay must have evidence to make its case; most arguments that occur in daily life happen in the heat of the moment and are more likely directed toward saving one’s own pride than toward giving clear and supportive proof to one’s claims.
Knowing how to brainstorm is going to save you from writing a weak essay. Also, knowing how to support your claims with evidence from outside sources will further strengthen your essay. For that reason, this assignment requires the use of two references (no internet sources). In addition, you will add a Works Cited page at the end of your essay. Finally, your Works Cited page will be in MLA (Modern Language Association) format so that all information provided will be easy for your reader to find.
