Now that you have read the module on rites and rituals, I would like you to choose a culture or cultural setting and research the rites and rituals of this culture or cultural setting.
You are to explain the rites and rituals of this culture or cultural setting in great detail, and then you should formulate an argument as to why rites and rituals are vital to the livelihood of this culture or cultural setting. You can also speak generally here, making a larger connection on a social or global scale to help with your introduction and conclusion.
Your research paper will be between 6 and 8 pages in MLA format and include a thesis statement, at least five outside sources (five sources minimum), and a Works Cited page. Please note that your Works Cited page does not count towards your page length requirement.
To make your process easier – and quicker – complete your essay in these parts:
Do some research in the library. You may use online sources as long as they are credible* sources. *Wikipedia.com is not an acceptable source; however, you may use it as a jumping off point. You need at least five sources; however, you MUST use at least 3 different types of sources.
At least one source must be from an ECC library,
At least one source must be a book, anthology, or journal,
At least one source must be from a credible website, appropriate for academic use.
The paper should not over-rely on one main source for most of the information. Rather, it should use multiple sources and synthesize the information found in them.
Part 4 – Draft your essay. Begin with a hook in your introduction that lures the reader in and use this paragraph to establish a lead-in to your topic by providing a general context for the reader. Place your thesis at the end of this introduction.
Part 5 – Use the body of your essay to inform your reader about the specifics of your topic while integrating quotations and paraphrases using signal phrases and analysis or commentary.
(Remember, provide interesting details that your reader likely doesn’t already know, or present common knowledge in a new light with commentary. Remember to site your sources correctly.)
Part 6 – Conclude your essay by summarizing the knowledge you’ve shared. Don’t bring up any new information or raise too many questions. This paragraph is meant to bring closure to the essay while maintaining your reader’s interest in the topic.
Part 7 – Complete a Works Cited page. It is the last part of your essay and gets its own page. Again, make sure that you have accurate in-text citations as well so that they match with your Works Cited page.
In addition to the requirements above, I will be looking for these things:
Did you sustain (maintain) your argument?
Did you use transitions effectively?
Did you use correct grammar, spelling, and punctuation?
Is your paper logical, organized, and focused?
