Topic: Choose a topic associated with your discipline on which you will research and then later write an essay. It must be in the form of:
The role of the [discipline professional or relevant issue] in [an aspect of your discipline]
Write a 1500-word essay addressing your topic and arising from your research for Assignment 1, the Research Assignment. Make sure you have taken a position on the topic – your argument. (Note: you do not have to use all the texts you found for the research assignment, and you are encouraged to add additional texts.) Incorporate in-text citations to at least five recent scholarly texts to build and support your argument. At least three of these texts must be scholarly journal articles. You are encouraged to use more scholarly texts, but you must use at least five. Your essay must be a completed first version, written in full sentences and referenced correctly.
