We will be working on the Explaining a Concept Paper for the next four units, as this is the longest paper you will write for this class. The Explaining a Concept Paper will be due at the end of Unit 14.
In the Explaining a Concept Paper, you will simply want to explain a concept of your choice, using research to support your explanations/definitions. This paper should be at least 3-5 pages long, it should include at least two sources, and it should accomplish the following:
*Inform your particular audience about a specific subject.
*Present information confidently and efficiently.
*Use established information for support, as well as personal “evidence” (if applicable) such as short anecdotes and examples from your own experience, or the experience of others.
*Maintain an informative tone (not an argumentative tone, as this is not an argumentative or persuasive paper).
Unit 11 is designed to familiarize you with the Explaining a Concept paper, and to help you choose a topic. I would like each of you to discuss your topic ideas on the discussion board this unit.
