In this essay, you will continue to work on controlling ideas, development, and MLA standards. In addition, you will focus on sentence variety and style. You also will respond to readings and use citations in your text. For the first time, you will begin to consult, evaluate, and cite sources outside the textbook. Minimum Word Count: 1,000 (Maximum 1,100) Total Points: 150 Readings: “The Extraordinary Science of Addictive Junk Food” “How Junk Food Can End Obesity” “Escape from the Western Diet” “What Are You Buying When You Buy Organic?” “Don’t Blame the Eater” “What You Eat Is Your Business” Topic and Question: Using the readings about food and health, craft an essay in which you answer the following question: To what extent do our eating habits and food culture negatively impact the United States, and what, if anything, should be done about the situation? Important Notes: Please underline your thesis. This will help you (and me) determine the focus of your argument. You must have at least three (3) sources in your paper, two (2) of which will come from the assigned readings. One (1) source will come from outside the class readings. Choose this source carefully. All sources must be cited correctly, including parenthetical citations and a Works Cited page. This prompt has two elements: assessing the seriousness of the problem and determining a course of action. Make sure that you address both elements. The phrase “to what extent” requires that you determine the degree of influence. This is not a “yes or no” question. You might argue that the negative impact is minimal, that it is extensive, or that it is somewhere in between. When you discuss “what, if anything, should be done,” be sure to discuss what specific actions you suggest and what you hope your actions will accomplish.
