For your second and final writing assignment in this course, you’re being asked to construct a variation of a personal essay, which can also be referred to as a research project. The essay that you produce must be based on a combination of personal experience(s) and research, it must be told primarily from the first-person point of view, and it must meet the given length requirement of 500 to 1,500 words. The essay that you write should be a direct response to one of the two prompts offered down below. It should offer your ideas and opinions and use research as support. This essay, much like the personal narrative, will be directed toward a general and unfamiliar audience—people who don’t know you personally. Your finished product should be completely original and contain research only as support for your established ideas. You should not rely on the results of your research to create your essay, but to support ideas of your own. This will help to ensure that your finished project is unique, credible, and ethical There are two distinct topic options for this particular assignment. While each of these options has specific requirements and expectations, there is also a great deal of freedom included with each. Because your essay is being created based on your opinions/ideas and research, no two completed essays will be exactly alike. This work will be submitted through TURNITIN.COM, any portion of your writing uses uncited ideas, phrases, or structure from another source, you could earn a failing grade of 1% for the exam. This will be at the discretion of the Penn Foster instructional team. Option 1: Personal Take on Current Issues Choose a current issue in local, national, or international news. Write an editorial piece explaining the issue and offering your opinions and any solutions you can think of that may apply. You’ll need to thoroughly research the issue at hand in order to provide a solid explanation of the issue, as well as informed opinions and solutions. You must be sure to provide an appropriate context for the issue you choose; the audience needs to understand why this is a problem that deserves consideration and why you feel your solutions can affect it. Part of your purpose is to convince your audience that your solutions are viable. Option 2: Planning a Career Choose a career that you would like to pursue. You’ll need to thoroughly research your career choice. You should explain the career to your audience. Although an explanation of the career is certainly necessary, you must be sure to keep the focus of the essay on yourself and why you want to enter this particular career field; the focus shouldn’t be solely on the career field itself. Be sure to provide as much detail as possible about your career choice, including what type of education, training, or certification is required; what a typical day or week would be like; what kind of salary you can expect; what the future looks like for employees in this field; and whether or not geography will affect job opportunities. Part of your purpose is to convince your audience that you’re making an informed choice, allowing you a chance at success in the job market. WHY USE THE FIRST-PERSON POINT OF VIEW? When writing from the first-person point of view, you’re relaying your personal thoughts, feelings, and experiences and speaking for yourself only. You can make observations regarding others, but you’re not able to speak for them or truly know what they’re thinking. In the confines of your research project, you must write from the first-person point of view because the fundamental ideas on which your essay is based are your own. ESSENTIALS: FORMATTING YOUR ESSAY • • • • • Please be sure to include a header at the top of each page that includes your last name and a page number at the right margin. The very first page of your essay shouldn’t contain a header, but it should include your name, your student ID number, and the exam number. Your paper should be typed and double-spaced using Microsoft Word It must be submitted in .doc, .docx, or .rtf format for grading purposes. Use double-spacing, standard one-inch margins, and a font no larger than the equivalent of Times New Roman 12. Your final draft should contain between 500 and 1,500 words. ...

OPINION ON THE RECENT IMMIGRATION BANS IN THE USA
Immigration Bans to the USA
One of the fracases that has been observed in the USA is one that has been involving the
immigrant issues in the USA. The current administration has already issued two executive orders
banning immigrants from countries that are predominantly Islamic and those that are seen to be
supporting terrorism. It is a case that has not only baffled me but also made me rethink the whole
perspective of globalization and a borderless world that people so much crave for. There have
been court battles that have often turned ugly, and the whole circus does not seem to have an end
in sight.
The heart of all this arises from the campaign pledge that Presiden...
