Unit 2 Assignment: Supported Paragraph

Due Date: 11:59 p.m. EST, Sunday, of Unit 2
Points: 100

Overview:
Read this article:

• DiLascio-Martinuk, T. (2021). Vote by mail: Overview. Points of View: Vote by Mail, 1–4.

You will be creating one paragraph that answers the following question:

• Why or why not should American citizens be allowed to vote by mail?

The article above provides an overview of the issue of Americans voting by mail. After reading
the above article, you will write one paragraph that asserts your objective and clear position
answering the above question. Your writing should be done in third person (he, she, they, one,
it, people) and not use first (me, us, our, we, my, I) or second person (you, your). Most
academic writing is done in third person rather than first or second person because the writing
is more objective.

The key to this assignment is to make sure that the seven-to-nine sentence paragraph you write
only has one topic and includes evidence to support that topic. In other words, you need one
main reason to explain why you think Americans should or should not be able to vote-by-mail.
Your answer to the above question should explain that reason in your paragraph with one direct
quote from the article. Review the Citing Evidence interactive in this unit for information on how
to include a direct quote in your work. Your evidence should go in the middle of the paragraph
so that you can completely introduce it and explain how it supports your topic. (See step-by-
step instructions about creating a paragraph with evidence.)

Instructions:

Answer the question above in one paragraph comprised of at least seven (7) to nine (9)
sentences. You should use one direct quote from the article.

1. First, begin your paragraph with a clear topic sentence that states where you

stand on the question above.

2. Next, include supporting sentences that explain and prove your topic. Next,
remember not to use the words “me,” “I,” “us,” “we,” “our,” “you,” and “your.”

3. Then, in the center of your paragraph, include a direct quote from the reading as

one piece of evidence to support your topic with an in-text citation that looks like
this: (Karter, 2021, p. #).

4. Finally, comment on and explain the quotation and wrap up your paragraph with
a concluding sentence.

Requirements:

• Please submit a Microsoft Word document or PDF.

• Include a title page, a proper font case per APA standards (Times New Roman
12 font is suggested), and a references page. The document should have 1-inch
margins and should be double-spaced.

• The direct quote should be included within the center of the paragraph (as
opposed to at the start or end).

• Use objective third-person language: “he,” “she,” “it,” “him,” “her,”

“himself,” “herself,” “itself,” “they,” “them,” “their,” “themselves.” (Avoid

subjective language such as “I,” “me,” “you,” “we,” “us,” etc.)

• The paragraph should be at least seven (7) sentences in length.

• Follow proper APA formatting when citing the quote and include the article’s

reference double-spaced on a reference page. For the reference page,
simply label the last page of your document References and add this
reference:

DiLascio-Martinuk, T. (2021). Vote by mail: Overview. Points of View: Vote by Mail, 1–4.

When using a reference, you indent after the first line of the reference (as seen
above).

Be sure to read the criteria by which your work will be evaluated before you
write and again after you write.
