Your argumentative research paper should be between 1500 and 2000 words, not including the works cited section, and it must be formatted in MLA style.
You should include at least 12 sources, with at least five sources from the library’s online databases (EBSCO, Gale, or Proquest).
Remember, when using a study as support, it’s helpful to include the following information:
1) the credentials of the author or authors
2) the number of subjects and who they are
3) a brief overview of the method
4) one or two specific results, preferably with numbers
Without all of this information, the conclusions of a study aren’t very convincing.
Here are two sample student papers (both used with written permission):
“Money Isn’t Everything: The Correlation Between Money and Happiness” by Brittany White
“A Greener Diet for a Greener Earth” by Katie Bielecki
