Now back to the essay. The template is included below. Download the attached template to your desktop and save it as the first initial of your first name, your last name, underscore (hit control and the dash key), and the essay number (not week number). Example: JSmith_essay1
On page one, change your name and other information as applicable. Include your skeleton outline on page two. Your header begins on page two as well and done for you on the template. Just add your title, as shown.
Your essay will begin on page three. You must include the following sections: introduction, materials and methods, results, and conclusion. All sections combined must be between 500-750 words.
Include your hypothesis in your introduction. Please put it in bold to identify it quickly. (Example hypothesis: Due to its many benefits and advantages, solar energy is a valuable resource to develop and refine.)
Research your topic carefully. Please use the APUS library to obtain your sources. Do not use the open web (absolutely NO Wikipedia). Use at least 3 but no more than 5 sources. Each source must be cited within your paper and also on your References page. Use CSE style! See Lesson 2 for detailed instructions on citing.
In your materials and methods section, explain how this topic was researched. What specific elements were examined and how were they studied? What are the details of the experiments? What supplies, tools, techniques, and procedures were used?
Provide the results of the above studies and your conclusion in the appropriate sections.
Look closely at the feedback you received during week two in the peer review forum area. Incorporate those suggestions as needed into your final essay. Consider suggestions about paragraph length, lead sentences, wordiness, CSE citations, vague adjectives, etc.
