Your bibliography must contain no fewer than TEN academic sources. Any media sources are additional to this. Overview This is an essay proposal, in which you present your plan for final essay. In order to complete the proposal, you need to select the essay question you are going to address, and undertake preliminary research into the topic. Your proposal should be structured as follows: a. At the top of the page, write the essay question you are going to answer. b. Contention: In no more than two sentences, explain your answer to the essay question. Every essay should contain an argument or contention, which is your informed response to the essay question. c. Essay plan: You should present a paragraph by paragraph plan of your essay, beginning with “Introduction”, and then “Paragraph 1”, “Paragraph 2” and so on. The plan should explain what each paragraph is going to contain. Guidance on the essay plan is available below. d. Key resources: List no fewer than SIX academic sources (books, chapters, journal articles) that you will use in the essay. After each source, include a sentence explaining why it is useful for your essay. Please consider the following explanation when constructing your essay plan. The first paragraph of your essay is your introduction. The task of this paragraph is to introduce the ESSAY. It is NOT to introduce the subject of your essay. For example, if your essay is about increasing rates of women in prison, then your introduction would say "This essay argues that increasing rates of women in prison is due to [etc ]. Drawing on prison statistics and the theories of [etc], the essay shows that increasing rates of women in prison is not due to increasing crime rates, but, instead, it is due to [etc]. This argument is illustrated using the example of [etc]." And so on. Do not make the mistake of explaining the core issues of your essay in your introduction. The second paragraph of your essay provides important background information. In this paragraph, immediately after the introduction, you should explain the core issues of the essay. If you are writing about incarcerated women, then this is the paragraph in which you provide statistic s, explain trends and so on. This gives the reader the basic information that they need to understand the rest of your argument. You may need two paragraphs to provide enough background information, depending on the topic you choose. Third to the fifth/sixth paragraph: Lay out your argument. Each paragraph should have a clear purpose. If you are writing about incarcerated women, then you might have three paragraphs explaining different theories for women`s increasing incarceration, followed by one paragraph in which you put forward your preferred theory, followed by an example which illustrates your point. (This is just a possible essay structure. There is no one `right` way to structure your essay. You need to be guided by your judgement and common sense.) Conclusion: The conclusion explains what the reader should have learnt through the course of your essay. Remember that you are responsible for taking the reader on a journey with a destination, in which they follow your argument throughout your essay, leading to your conclusion. The written conclusion summarises your argument and shows the reader what you`ve accomplished in the essay. You must take a position and present an argument in your essay. Summarising the literature without forming an argument is insufficient and will be marked down. Assessment 2: Essay Overview Student must select ONE of the following essays: 1.
