English 103 Analysis/Argument Essay



Stapled, typed, double-spaced, Times, Times New Roman, or other serif font

About 1000 words (3 double-spaced pages)

Include at least one published source to supplement your support

Use MLA formatting and citations

  • Analyze (or explain) something you are personally connected to.  Start with your interest inventory.  Make a claim and support it.  Choosing a good topic is as important as writing the paper itself.  Opt for a specific, narrow topic over a broad, general one.  Remember when you’re including a personal connection, you’re not writing about yourself but using your own experience as a source of support. 
  •  Finally, avoid the big controversial topics, not because they’re controversial but because they’re overdone: abortion, capital punishment, marijuana, etc.

What is Research?

"Research is formalized curiosity.
It is poking and prying with a purpose."

-Zora Neale Hurston
(from Dust Tracks on a Road, 1942)
