Background on urgency of the project: I am currently deployed in Iraq and taking an online college courses. Issue I face is I had a mission in which there was no internet access for one week, which in turn put me very behind with the two current courses in which I am enrolled. With long additional hours I have caught up my workload minus one assignment which is an argumentative paper for my English Comp II class. This late assignment ties into my Group Project which is due this week. As a group, we have to review each others paper. Problem is I have not begun the paper with still catching up on previous assignments and military obligations. The paper is based off a topic-sentence outline I had to create as well as 5 references I have used throughout the class. I would like to have a paper submitted by Wednesday for my group to review. Assignment: Using material from your thesis statement, outline and references, write a polished first draft of an argument essay. Format your project (in APA format) in the following order: Title page Abstract Essay References list Write the essay using the argument pattern of development: claim (thesis), supporting reasons, and evidence. Write the essay using a formal tone and style, which avoids the use of personal pronouns (you, I, me, or we). To support your thesis statement and reasoning, cite evidence (facts, statistics, and expert viewpoints) from a minimum of 5 sources (with in-text citation) and include corresponding reference entries in your reference list. This is not optional; you must use sources to support your thesis statement.
