  • Show the steps of the writing process by developing the Week 2 Outline into a workable rough draft.
  • Compose a clear argument in response to the selected essay. Support your response with examples and at least one quote and one paraphrase (a total of two citations) from the essay you selected.

  • Utilize appropriate academic writing tone, style, and citation format as well as correct grammar, spelling, and sentence mechanics.
