Please read and follow the instruction of the second essay instruction file. The following information are from TA. She is the one who grad my paper so be sure to follow her essay tips too!
*****VERY IMPORTANT***** I like to write the Indigenous struggle against the Dakota Access Pipeline but I have no idea which policy proposal that matches this study case. You can switch to other one that professor mention in the instruction if you want, but use your profession to match the study case and the policy proposal for me. I downloaded all the class readings regarding to the pipeline for you to cite examples from class lectures and use selective quotations from course readings to support your argument. Do not reference to any text that are not in those reading that I gave you. No difficult vocabularies please.
You may need to google the policy proposal if you can not find them in the readings.
You can find the reading materials that are giving to the class weekly in this link:
I. Basic Formatting:
*Be sure to create a title.
*Keep it to four pages; going a bit over is OK but try not to go under.
*Double-space, 12 pt font, Times New Roman.
*Include page numbers.
* use Chicago style citations.
*Use full footnote citations; no works cited or bibliography, so all bibliographic information for each source must be included in the footnotes (full citations not just a link)
*Here is a guide for how to do Chicago-style citations; use the \”notes-bibliography\” setup, but you do not need to include the bibliography:http://www.chicagomanualofstyle.org/tools_citationguide.html
*Here is another guide with a sample paper in Chicago style. Please note, again, that the bibliography and cover page are not required, but this will give you an idea what your footnotes should look like:https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/717/11/
*If you are citing a lecture, be sure to include the speaker, course title, and lecture date (refer to the Chicago Manual of Style for specific details).
*Cite anything that does not come directly from your brain! This includes general facts and information, direct quotes from any text, lecture information, as well as summaries of information from a text or lecture (i.e. if you are summarizing what an author said in your own words, you should still cite the source).
III. Essay #2 Tips
*This assignment asks you to critically assess the strengths and weaknesses of activist responses to a particular case study (like Bhopal, Flint, MTR etc.) within the context of the climate justice policy proposals we have studied (like Leap Manifesto, BLM platform statement, etc.). Make sure the case study and the policy proposal you chose to analyze together match up in a way that makes sense. The question is: how do the activist responses to the case study measure up against the climate justice policy proposal? Your argument should be clear – i.e. you should make a statement assessing the effectiveness of the activist response and back it up with some evidence (discussion of tactics, concepts, ideas from the policy proposal and other material).
*Try to keep the bulk of your four pages dedicated to your critical assessment of the case study you choose. Keep introduction to a minimum; no need to explain what climate justice is, just get right into your argument and evidence.
Also please make sure that each of the sections of your essay are given equal weight (i.e. dont spend three pages describing the case study and only one for critical analysis).
*Use selected quotes where it makes sense and make sure to cite any quotations (including page numbers).
*Watch out for run-on sentences and sentence fragments, which make your writing unclear. Here is a worksheet with some examples:http://www.waynecc.edu/pdf/asc/english/SetenceFragmentRunon.pdf
*Please write in an academic style. This includes avoiding broad generalizations, slang, and or unsubstantiated claims.
