10103Unit IV Journal
Weight: 2% of course grade
Grading Rubric
In this unit, we have discussed both the introduction and the literature review. Throughout the process of writing both of these sections, you have no doubt gained a better understanding of the controversy that you are exploring with your paper. You probably have a better sense of your argument and what you would like your points to be for your body paragraphs. Consider what you have experienced over the last few units. We are at the halfway point in the course, so think about how far you have come.
In this reflection, introduce your professor to your project. Speak about the pro and con sides of the controversy, and present your thesis statement. Then, consider some of the following questions as you reflect upon the road so far. If you want to, explain a little bit about your process. What have you experienced so far in writing your paper? Was it difficult or fairly easy to come up with your design? Do you feel confident about your progress so far? How do you feel about your thesis statement? What would you like to do in revisions? What step seems the most difficult or the easiest for you?
Your journal entry must be at least 200 words. No references or citations are necessary.
I added two attachments. In the Unit III Cultural Diversity, I completely bombed it. This has to be revised to match what you will do in Unit IV. I would like to focus on the argument of racial bias and cultural inequality as my argument. After revising the Unit III, we can do the Unit IV Journal and then the Literature Review for Unit IV. I will send those instructions below. I included the Annotated Bibliography just so you will know what was completed so far.

Draft of Introduction and Literature Review
Follow the directions below for the completion of the introduction and literature review draft assignment for Unit IV. If you have questions, please email your professor for assistance.
Purpose: The purpose of this assignment is to begin drafting your academic argumentative research paper.
Description: In this assignment, you will first write your literature review; then, you will write your introduction. Please see “Lesson 4: The Introduction” for details on why it is suggested that you begin the drafting process with the literature review instead of the introduction. The following details are requirements of the assignment:
Introduction (9-12 well-developed sentences/approximately 350 words): For more details about what is expected for each of the following sentences, please see “Lesson 4: The Introduction.” You may also want to review the “Example Introduction and Literature Review (with comments).” The following components must be included in the introduction (in the following order).
Sentence 1: Introduce the general topic
Sentence 2: Pro side (general)
Sentence 3: Con side (general)
Sentence 4: Narrow the scope (1)
Sentence 5: Examples of the narrowed topic
Sentence 6: Narrow the scope (2)
Sentence 7: Specific controversy
Sentence 8: Pro side (specific)
Sentence 9: Con side (specific)
Sentence 10: The thesis
Literature Review (800-900 words): For details about the structure of the literature review, you will want to review “Lesson 3: The Literature Review: The Process.” You may also want to review the “Example Introduction and Literature Review (with comments).” The link is below.
Literature review preface: This paragraph acts as a guide to what the reader can expect in the literature review.
Literature review body: This section includes three to four body paragraphs that discuss the history, terminology, and both sides of the controversy (pro and con).
Literature review conclusion: The conclusion signals that the literature review is ending, but it also acts as a kind of preface for the body of the paper by restating the thesis statement and establishing your argument once again.
Demonstrate how to summarize and paraphrase source materials.
Demonstrate the avoidance of plagiarism through proper use of APA citations and references for all paraphrased and quoted material.
Introduction and literature review example
Note: The conclusion is not presented in this example; however, the literature review conclusion is a requirement of the assignment.
You may also seek out the guidance of the Success Center; the specialists are always there to assist you with your writing and comprehension.
The professor’s comments about the Unit III paper are:
Overall, your proposal is not as well proofread and edited as I would like. There are more than a few grammar or punctuation problems. Your style can be awkward, too, and you often use jargon in ways that I could not understand. I would suggest that you sharpen your focus considerably. There are lots of arguments that can be made about urban planning. Is your argument that contemporary urban planners should directly address the impact of racism and inequity? How? That might be an engaging argument. Do you want to argue that contemporary urban planners need to incorporate our understanding of climate change into their plans? That too might make an engaging argument. I would not do both, however. Once you have sharpened your focus and defined the problem, you can write a stronger thesis. Make sure to look over my comments and let me know if you have any questions.”
