Essay Structure Instruction
The structure of your 1-2-page summary essay must include the following three components:
1.) Introduce the issue being discussed and which two opposing websites will be evaluated. Introduce which two websites (covering the same topic) will be compared in the introduction.
2.) Evaluate each web/internet article using the checklist provided in the textbook (be clear as to which websites are being evaluated via the checklist discussing how the checklist specifically applies to each site). The checklist evaluation should be apparent in the body of the paper as the purpose of the assignment is to learn to critically evaluate web resources.
3.) Explain your own approach for determining your personal stance pertaining to the issue, providing support for your argument, as directed by the textbook. This component should be brief, stated at the conclusion.
