Then, choose one American state, select one significant environmental problem in the state that is being addressed through a specific strategy or various strategies, and write a 6-10 page problem-solution paper on the topic. Choose your own topic, not a topic from one of the assigned essays you read.
Be sure to do the following:
Overview the problem in an introductory movement of one to two paragraphs of 6-8 sentences each. This means placing the environmental problem in context within the state. Explain why the issue matters to those citizens. State your thesis at the end of your introductory movement, which means it would come at the end of the first or second paragraph. The thesis should include a mention of a problem in need of a solution.
Then, write a multiple-paragraph movement that defines the problem in some detail. Overview the concern shown by those with the means to effect change who have been acting on the problem.
In your next movement, propose your solution in equally clear detail. Your problem and solution movements should be of equal length.
Analyze elements of the implementation process and its outcomes. This means examining details that most people might not consider, much less notice, to include possible short- or long-term possibilities.
Each body paragraph should be from 4-8 sentences, and most body paragraphs should include the following structure:
An opening topic sentence that supports your thesis.
At least one sentence just after the topic sentence that supports the topic sentence with logic and evidence.
Include a quote or paraphrase from one of your sources in the third or fourth sentence of at least five body paragraphs.
The paper should include both direct quotes and paraphrases, and cite at least seven different sources, all of which should be credible (don’t use Wikipedia, ask.com, Sparknotes, Cliffnotes, BrainyQuote, etc.).
A sculpted closing sentence of your own (not an outside source) that completes the thought of the paragraph.
Finish with a closing paragraph of 4-8 sentences that offers a tonally appropriate call to action.
Conform to the following guidelines for this paper:
Use at least one source from the PPCC databases: http://libguides.ppcc.edu/az.php
Include at least one source per page except on your final page.
Include visuals (pictures, graphs, charts, etc.) in your paper. Note that visuals won’t count as page count. In other words, you’ll need 6-10 pages of text not including the visuals.
Use the MLA format precisely, to include in-text citations and a works cited page. If you use citation engines, remember that you still need to cite sources correctly.
