INS359 You are encouraged to be original, creative, we are a research university! You are most welcome to draw upon your personal experiences and challenges. An essay is a story. I looked through a variety of explanations of what is an essay. Some think of an essay as if it were part of an organized trip – or detective work. Your introduction is like the start of the journey, you are looking for an answer - or a villain. Social scientists talk of formulating a hypothesis and then looking for variables of different types to prove or disprove the thesis. They like to quantify. Even “qualitative” approaches follow the logic of quantification. The subject of this course does not really lend itself to social scientific positivist treatment. Deciding a Title Oftentimes, a title or an essay "prompt" is decided for you, if the instructor provides a list of obligatory - as if you were sitting an exam where you do not have much of a choice (or you find a question which you like as formulated in the textbook). However, when you have the liberty of choosing your essay topic ideas, go for a topic that you are passionate about. You are bound to write a good essay if the subject interests you. I Introduction The introduction is a short paragraph explaining what the essay is all about. The title and the introductory paragraph are the two most important parts of an essay. So try to make your introductory paragraph as attractive as possible. A good introduction gives a clear idea to the reader regarding the purpose of the essay. It should be short, precise, and to the point. Introduction & overview of the essay, would include depending on your topic: a) the current event/ phenomenon you are going to analyze; b) the theoretical approaches you will use ; c) and within each, which key concepts you will apply; d) foreshadow your assessment as to the strengths and weaknesses of using the particular theoretical lens to view your topic. Note: the Introduction will most likely have to be written last, so focus your attention on part II first, and then go back and write this introduction paragraph. II Supporting Paragraphs The thesis statement is a single sentence which states your main point or core claim. It is a direct argument that is explained in supporting paragraphs. A thesis statement is often the main idea around which the content revolves. Supporting paragraphs form the main body of the content of the essay. This is where you will be expressing your point by making a range of arguments and provide relevant evidence for the same. Remember that your essay should cover all the points with the context of your topic. Application of Theoretical Concepts to Phenomenon- Introduce specific concepts that you choose to apply to your phenomenon, citing authors, works, and school of thought from which these concepts come Here is your chance to be creative, critical, and analytical. III Conclusion This is a concluding paragraph in which you sum up all the ideas expressed in the supporting paragraphs. It reiterates the purpose or theme of the essay. In short, it is the introduction paragraph expressed in different words and supported by an argument in favor of your point. The main focus when you think of how to write a conclusion should be on creating a powerful effect on the reader’s mind: your essay must attempt to persuade. Brief Assessment of Theories’ Applicability Briefly assess the strengths and weaknesses of applying the theoretical lenses and concepts to this phenomenon: i.e.: a) what does this approach illuminate or direct our attention to, or help us see more clearly? b) but what does it hide or obscure? Page 1 5/3/21 c) what are the theoretical, policy, and/or ethical ramifications of using this theory in this case? d) which concepts give us greater explanatory or understanding power in this phenomenon? Note: The essays must: - be well-written (that is: no drifting, rambling, repeating yourself); - be free of grammatical and spelling errors, using proper citation practices, and including a References or Works Cited section at the end - follow the citation style found on the BB. (Essays that do not may be marked down) - essay has to be handed in on the due date agreed in the class - May 7. Analytical essays should be roughly 2,000 words excluding references. They are to be submitted digitally. Since the instructor encourages you to submit a draft - there will be ample opportunity for revisions, improvements.
