For this Portfolio Project, you must compose a persuasive essay in the profile essay genre. Your profile must cover the following:
include a thesis statement in your introduction
consist of body paragraphs that include a topic sentence and clear details that support your description
address your topic using critical thinking skills
include one quotation, paraphrase, and use of a summary in your paper
include a concluding paragraph that synthesizes your main points
incorporate instructor and peer feedback
Your paper should be 5-6 pages in length and conform to APA guidelines in the CSU Global Writing Center. Include at least three scholarly references in addition to the course textbook. The CSU Global Library is a good place to find these references.
Steven, follow directions. We are NOT writing long research papers that require an Abstract. Get rid of yours!
Your work also shows other formatting errors. Look at the student samples I’m providing this week in Announcements; your papers need to look like those.
Also, you have not paid attention to my many lessons on what is expected in the profile piece — namely, a personal connection. I don’t see a single “I” here, and that is a BIG mistake.
Sorry to say, you haven’t followed my very specific directions. This isn’t a profile piece dominated by your reactions to the person, only mere exposition on him.
Please fix this problem in the final work, or the grade will reflect a failure to meet expectations, which have been repeatedly given.
