Essay # 4 (Nature) For your last essay of the semester, we are going to move you closer to the academic writing that you will do in a English 100 course. Academic writing, the kind of writing you will do in college, exists as a conversation on the page between people of similar interest. People interested in similar issues will present their ideas, but they won’t do so in a vaccum. They will present their ideas after reading as much as possible about the thoughts of others on their subject. To create this conversation, it is necessary to do research. You must find out what other people are saying about your topic, and then you must allow their voices to enter your writing through quotes, paraphrase and summary. As you work these quotes paraphrases and summaries into your essay, it is crucial that you follow the conventions of academic writing. When you allow the voices of others to speak in your essay through these quotes, paraphrase and summaries, it is essential that you give them credit, not only for their words, but their ideas as well. However you approach the topic of nature, you are required to cite a minimum of three sources. The first source you will cite will be the Catherine Latterell and one of the three assumption she makes regarding nature (spiritual, the essence of things, can’t be improved on). The second source you will cite is one of the essays from the book, and finally, you will cite a peer-reviewed scholarly source that you find by searching Ebsco. You can bring in more sources than this, but it will be necessary to have these sources in your essay. Because there are three assumptions in this section of Remix, you will have three options for approaching this essay. Option #1: Using the assumption about the spiritual side of nature and the Ken Burns film The National Parks: America’s Best Idea, you will write an essay where you discuss the way in which spirituality and nature can be connected in contemporary society. (Ebsco search terms: Nature and Spirituality) Option #2: Using the assumption that nature is the essence of things and the essays by Eric Schlosser and/or Michael Pollan you will write an essay that discusses the nature of food and the food consumption patterns of contemporary society. (Ebsco search terms: food and government recommendation) Option # 3: Using the assumption that nature cannot be improved, and the essays by Alan Weisman and/or Jonah Lehrer, you will write an essay that discusses the issues of sustainability in contemporary society. This is probably the broadest topic since there may issues of sustainability in the modern world including: energy use, food production, water use, or waste disposal to name a few. Here you will have to pick one issue and really focus. (Ebsco search terms: sustainability and [put your topic here]) As you do your Ebsco search for the source, you will review titles of and abstracts to help you find the source that will be most helpful to your essay, and remember to click on the Full Text and Scholarly (Peer Reviewed) Journal buttons before you begin your search. In preparing your work-cited pages, I strongly suggest using Noodlebib, as we discussed to help you set up a proper MLA work-cited page. You might as well learn it, and it makes flawless MLA documents if you enter the information correctly.
