Assignment description and sample topics: At the time of instruction,
students will be writing a 3 to 5 page cause/effect argument essay. A minimum
of 2 PCC library database sources will be required. Students will be voting
as a class on 4 essay topics on which to write, so I can't provide you essay
topics at this time. However, I have uploaded the essay guidelines/topics
from Spring 2013 term to give you an idea of the topics students picked last
Upload class assignment and other relevant documents:
Causal essay (New Version).docx:

What are your learning outcomes for this session?
Become acquainted with PCC library databases. Since students will be required
to include opposing viewpoints in their arguments by the end of the term, I'd
like them to be introduced to the Opposing Viewpoints database and/or any
other databases you think will help them in this area.

Also, an explanation about the difference between research using scholarly
sources versus basic Google searches would be helpful. I'd like for students
to grasp the importance of implementing well-researched and peer reviewed
articles in their writing.
