Writing Assignment: Illustration Essay You are required to submit the FINAL copy of this assignment, but you may first submit an optional DRAFT. This will allow you to receive qualitative feedback that can inform your revision. You should always avoid focusing solely on the graders DRAFT feedback; use the feedback as a supplement to the course lessons and your own revision ideas. Always expect to revise beyond what the DRAFT grader specifically notes. In short, an illustration essay will use clear, interesting examples to show, explain, and support a thesis statement (remember, your thesis is your main argument, or the main point youre trying to make). One key to an effective illustration essay is to use enough details and specific examples to make your point effectively. In other words, descriptive writing is key. You have several options for this assignment, so you will need to choose one: ? Illustrate the ideal work environment. If everything was perfect at work, what would it be like? Describe everything in this environmentperhaps from the dispositions of your coworkers and supervisors to what clothes you wear to work. ? Illustrate what it means to be a true friend. What does being a true friend mean to you? What true friends have you had, and how do their actions coincide with being your definition of a true friend? ? Illustrate how your favorite team or player received their current standing or ranking. How did the team or player do in the most recent season? What qualities did this team or player demonstrate to earn this ranking? ? Look at your favorite poem or short story, and use illustration to explain what makes it your favorite. Do you enjoy the authors language? Do you enjoy the storyline? What else do you enjoy that makes it your favorite? ? Illustrate the purpose of props on the set of your favorite media production. What props are there? Why are they important? ? Illustrate how to create your favorite dish. What steps are required to create this dish? Be sure that you take your audience through this process step by step! ? Illustrate how to play your favorite game. What steps and/or actions are necessary to play this game? Take your readers through the motions, step by step. The questions above are designed to help you begin brainstorming ideas; however, you are free to develop your own brainstorming questions and use them to develop your essay. Since the purpose of this essay is to illustrate, you should have enough specific details and examples for your essay to be considered an illustration essay. Many illustrations may come from your personal experiences. However, even personal experiences should be supported by research in college essays. Thus, you must cite at least one credible1 source to earn maximum credit for this essay. This resource from the course 1 Please note: Basic dictionary sources, user-edited websites (e.g., Wikipedia, eHow, etc.), and sites that house databases of quotations are not considered credible sources. You will lose points in the Research category of the rubric if your sources arent credible. will help you understand more about evaluating sources. Failure to use and cite at least one credible source will result in a point deduction from your grade. Properly cite your source(s) in MLA format and include a Works Cited page (this resource from the course will help). Review the rubric for this essay to get an idea of how your work will be assessed. As with all college writing, your essay should have a strong thesis statement in addition to an introduction, body, and conclusion. Thesis hints: Here are some general and specific examples of how you might think about your thesis for this assignment: General: If you are illustrating qualities that make up something: In order for a friend to be considered a true friend, he or she must be (characteristic 1), (characteristic 2), and (characteristic 3).

Persuasive Essay Final Draft
This assignment calls for you to revise your Persuasive Essay from week six into a final draft. All good writers revise their work, often multiple times. Revising isnt just looking for grammatical errors; editing alone is not revision (though we do want you to edit too). Revision literally means to see again. In the revision process, you improve your analytical skills, sometimes challenging your own ideas which can serve to deepen your argument.
Review the feedback your instructor provided on your rough draft as well as the information from the peer review in week seven. As you begin revising your paper, be sure to consider the following:
· Did I fulfill the assignment criteria?
· Did I say what I intended to say?
· Do I have a two-sided topic?
· Is my thesis persuasive in nature?
· Do all my paragraphs serve to support my thesis?
· Is my argument convincing, my support logical, my evidence sufficient?
· Does my conclusion sum up the essay?
The final draft of your essay should contain the same basic features as the rough draft:
· A well-defined issue that is controversial by nature
· A clear thesis statement that demonstrates the position you will be taking throughout the essay
· A counter argument with at least one credible source defending the opposing viewpoint
· A refutation to or compromise with the counter argument
· From 500 to 700 words in length, typed in Times New Roman, 12pt. font, double-spaced, with one inch margins
· Written primarily in third person
· Edited for spelling, mechanical, grammatical, and typing errors
The most important criteria for your final draft is that it is revised version of the rough draft!
View your assignment rubric.
Review your instructors comments and the iRubric carefully. Revise your first essay (Essay 1, Week 2) to show that you understand and have applied the feedback provided. Make sure that all of your instructor’s comments have been deleted.

Save your essay as follows: Smith_REVISED_Essay1. We will not use Turnitin for this Assignment since your essay was previously submitted.
Please note that your essay will NOT be regraded. Your instructor will examine your paper to see if you have made the necessary corrections. If so, you will receive full credit for this Assignment.

If you have not made the necessary corrections, your instructor might ask you to revise and resubmit before you are given full credit. Your success in this course hinges on your learning from feedback, so you must be able to demonstrate that your writing is improving as we move along in this course.)
Finally, at the bottom of your essay (after paragraph five), please respond the following questions. Do you understand your feedback? Do you have any questions for your instructor?

Part II: (25 points and approximately 600 words)
The Business of Amateurs documentary argues that the NCAA and its member institutions often place their profits and the desire to win ahead of the best interests of their student-athletes. There are several documentaries that outline various claims against the NCAA and the college sports enterprise, but Business of Amateurs is one of the few (if not the only) one that documents the challenges facing the college sports industry from the perspective of student- athletes.
Although some of the facts and policies governing college sports have already changed some since the release of this film (e.g., guaranteed multi-year scholarship at autonomy schools and scholarships that include the full cost of attendance), this film does an excellent job of outlining the major legal, ethical, and business challenges that threaten the future of the collegiate sports model in the US.
For this question, lets assume that the commissioner of the SEC (i.e., Mr. Sankey), was reallyimpressed with your excellent essay on health and safety issues in college sports. He reached out to you again in order to help frame a discussion around this film for the university presidents in the SEC. The SEC is organized so that the presidents (and chancellors) of each institution who make up the SEC oversee the governance process of the league. Mr. Sankey actually serves in his role at the pleasure of the 14 presidents.
Write a 600 word (or so) essay that reviews the major points made in this documentary thatcan serve as a type of viewing guide for the presidents and chancellors of the league.
This viewing guide will provide the presidents with the major takeaways from the film and focus their attention on some of the most significant pressure points challenging the college sports system that sports fans love.
The film identifies several major challenges (e.g., amateurism, the market value of athletes, the role of the NCPA, the role of agents, academic cheating, athlete safety, name, image, and likeness issues, etc.); you should try to focus your synopsis on just 3 major issues outlined in the film.
As you compose your essay, assume that these presidents and chancellors will watch the film after reviewing your essay, and thus your guide will help them focus on the major points that the filmmaker is trying to portray.
Since our presidents and chancellors are all academic scholars and are likely to be a littlesuspect of a filmmakers perspective on the major issues facing college sports, you will need to include at least two references to our readings that lend support to the arguments made in the documentary. One of your citations should be to the Eitzen chapter in this unit and one to the Holstein chapter from this unit.
