Complete your 3-5-page essay in which you have analyzed your chosen article, and revise it focusing on MUGS (Mechanics, Usage, Grammar, and Spelling). Make sure that you have an introduction and thesis (perhaps a revised one). Each of the body paragraphs should be devoted to a single argument with 2-3 pieces of supporting evidence/quotes. Finally, write a conclusion which summarizes your argument and reminds your reader of your thesis statement.
Remember that, in order to avoid plagiarism, you MUST have a Works Cited page listing the essay that you are quoting from.
The Works Cited page is not considered a page of required text and must be at the end of the paper, not in a separate file.
