Blog 9: Media Mid-term Research (Due 4/6 During Class)

For your Media Mid-term assessment, you have been asked to write a thesis-driven researched argumentative essay (with a claim, reasons, and evidence) in MLA format and citation style. For this blog entry, I would like for you to do the following:

1. Conduct internet research on the following terms, then define them in your own words through your own understanding. Be sure to include relevant examples. Cite the sources you used in the proper MLA format for websites (you may want to check out library's website for this).

  • Thesis / Thesis Statement
  • Research
  • Argument
  • Claim
  • Reasons
  • Evidence
  • MLA Citation Style
2. Reread the media mid-term assignment. Bringing to bear what you learned above, what are you being asked to do? What is your initial position on the issue? Why? What evidence do you think you need to find to support your position? Where might you look?
