Some possible topics to consider are these:
(NOTE: You are not required to do the items on the above bulleted list in this exact order.)
The essay should be 6-7 pages long (1800-2100 words), typed and double-spaced. Your Works Cited page is not included in the page or word count. You should incorporate the work of at least six sources. Don’t forget that the library databases are still available to you online, even though the campus is closed. The articles in your textbook count as sources, too. Follow the MLA format, including a Works Cited page with your essay, and using in-text citations when you quote, paraphrase, or summarize a source.
Even though the campus is closed, the library is still accessible. You can reach a librarian via the yellow chat widget found on all of the library pages: The chat button is also on these guide pages. If you use chat during "regular" business hours (7:30 a.m. until 9:30 p.m. Mon-Th, 7:30 - 5 on Fridays and 9 - 3 on Saturdays), you will connect with an SCC librarian. Any other time 24/7, you will reach a librarian in our global network who is available to help our SCC students. If you're up late at night, there's a good chance you'll get a librarian in the UK.
This guide will lead you to resources within our library. You will be able to use our databases at any time day or night. By using the SCC databases, you have the lovely opportunity to have your work cited for you in the MLA format that is required for this class.
You can pretty much trust the resources provided to you on our site. I have also added a guide for effectively searching the internet for credible sources using Google and how to evaluate if a source is, indeed, reliable.
