The academic essay Assignment in this unit will be a written, cohesive argument
for a specific change in your community or workplace. The Assignment should take
the form of a persuasive essay, in which you will provide reliable evidence from
at least four sources to support the argument for change that you are
advocating. You will also need to address a counter-argument or misconception
about your topic within the essay, as the ability to do so is a key component of
a strong argument. Essentially, the essay will reflect what you have learned
about writing effectively, using research, and creating a logical argument to
influence an audience.

As long as your topic meets the Assignment requirements, there are no specific
restrictions on the topic of an argument for change, unless noted otherwise by
your instructor.

In accordance with Kaplan University’s plagiarism policy, students must not
self-plagiarize by submitting an Assignment for two different grades; therefore,
you must not submit a paper for this Assignment that has been graded in whole or
in part for another class, whether at Kaplan or another institution. For further
insights on self-plagiarism, please review KUWC’s resource, “Self-Plagiarism”
(podcast or transcript).

Your persuasive essay will need to meet the following criteria:

  • APA 6th Edition format for the document, including an appropriately
    formatted title page and References page
  • A thesis statement at the end of the introduction paragraph
  • Well-developed paragraphs that include evidence from sources to support
    your argument for a specific change in your community or workplace
  • Four reliable sources should be cited within the text of the Assignment; at
    least one of the cited sources should be either a book/ebook or a periodical
  • All cited sources need to have full citations on a References page (except
    for any interviews you conduct, which only require in-text citations)
  • Standard American English and a formal tone throughout the writing
  • Only the third person point of view should be used

Achieving the above criteria should be your main goal with your academic essay. A
strong and well-supported argument will be at least 4 pages (1,000 words long),
not including the title page and references page.

A special feature is available to help you with reviewing your Unit 8 Assignment
