Write a 4 to 6-page essay supporting your position with evidence from at least 4 articles from the Reedley College Library’s databases and 2 credible websites. No more than 15% of your essay can include quotes. This means if you submit your essay and Turnitin gives it a 20% similarity rating, you should paraphrase some of your quotes. All quotes and paraphrases must be cited using proper MLA format. 

Annotated Works Cited

A brief summary including the types of support or evidence presented by the article. In this section, do not include specific statistics or a quote.

A connection to your essay stating where in your essay you could use information from the reading.
