Did you use research material in this assignment? Research is REQUIRED for this assignment.
Do you have a Works Cited page at the end of your essay with the title Works Cited?
Do you have at least two sources?
Are those two sources cited in the paper using either paraphrases or direct quotations?
Did you define words, use a dictionary, or use an encyclopedia? If so, those sources and information from those sources must be removed. Most common words or words used with their well-known definition do not need to be defined in an essay. Dictionaries and encyclopedias are NOT argumentative sources.
Did you use MLA 8th edition to cite your sources within the text?
Have you used parenthetical references within the text to show that you are paraphrasing or quoting?
Does the word/name in each parenthetical reference match the first word/name in the corresponding Works Cited entry?
Is your thesis a single, concise sentence?
Does the thesis state the argument the essay will make?
Is the file properly named, as advised?
Does the essay refer to itself? (For example, are you writing lines like, “In this essay, I will . . .? If so, remove them.)
Does your paper have the correct MLA format (margin, font, space, etc)?
Did you run spellcheck?
Does your conclusion make a “so what” point?
Have you met the minimum word requirement?
Have all contractions been removed? (This is a formal essay.)
Does the essay have logical transitions throughout?
