By the due date assigned, submit the rough draft of your final research essay to the Discussion Area. By the end of the week, comment on at least two of your classmates’ essays, using the Peer Response Guidelines below.
Following the informal outline you developed posted in our discussion this week, compose your rough draft. You may choose to use the APA formatted template to start your draft.
Your rough draft should be at least 1,200 words and include an introduction, well-developed body paragraphs, a memorable conclusion, and a references page. Be sure to include a cover page and format your headers correctly.
Use of the APA Citation Helper as a guide for properly citing resources.
Peer Response Guidelines:
Respond to two peers’ drafts using the following questions:
- What appears to be the main point (thesis) of the rough draft?
- In your opinion, which supporting example or fact was the most effective? Why?
- Are there any changes that need to be made to the APA citations or overall formatting? Please help the author identify needed corrections before submitting the final draft.
