“writing an argumentative essay” My topic is FGM 1) write up at least three key discoveries about your research questions from your library research this week. 2) add to your APA style reference/works cited list another (3 – 5) scholarly sources from your research this week that you think will be useful to you in making your argument. 3) draft approximately eight pages of the body of your paper (Introduction and Conclusions saved for later). In order to provide a context for this material, also attach a copy of your first draft of the opening paragraph (that includes the current thesis statement and brief outline of the other sections in the paper). As you write, carefully document quotations, paraphrases, and summaries using appropriate in-text citations. Do NOT plan on waiting to add these later because doing so will only complicate your task and raise concern about potential problems with plagiarism. Whenever possible, paraphrase instead of using direct quotation so that the primary “voice” of the paper remains your own. Use quotations, especially “block” (over 40 words), sparingly. Include along with the draft a reference list/works cited that include all works you’ve directly cited.
