Compose an analytical essay about the environment, focused specifically on an analysis of some of its meanings and contexts. This essay is expected to state as the thesis a central idea about the diversity and nuances of some meanings and contexts of the environment, followed by plausible reasons and interesting examples strengthened by the successful implementation of several Form techniques (Encircling, Quote Sandwiching), all supporting the central idea in a series of well-developed supporting paragraphs. The essay must be 1,000 words minimum in length, paragraphed, and MLA-formatted.
A title announcing the topic in some way is required. Your ideas for this essay may be inspired by the Week 8-9 anthology readings (Emerging), but those readings must not be used or cited as sources. Instead, in one (only one) of the supporting paragraphs, include a brief quote (no more than three (3) lines), found on brainyquote.com, that must contain the word environment. One quote is required; only one quote is permitted. (Use an ellipsis … or brackets [ ] in the quote as needed if you omit words from the original quote for economy and conciseness or add words of your own for clarity and context.) For this assignment, a Works Cited page listing the source is not permitted. Submitted documents that contain less than the required minimum of 1,000 words receive an instant and automatic 0pts. (Double-check your document’s word count before uploading the file to this online platform. When one checks the word count of a .doc or .docx document to be uploaded to Canvas, one opens that document and looks at the number of words listed on the lower left of the screen. The same number is also listed in the Review menu at the top after clicking on Word Count in that drop-down menu. Your submitted document must have a word count listed as “1000 words” or higher on the lower left of the screen, and in the Review menu under Word Count, the same number of words must be stated there as “Words 1000” or higher.)

Four (4) points maximum are assigned based on successful implementation of thesis, support, MLA, and SWE, as defined in the Syllabus.
Additional information about more detailed expectations and requirements, necessary for the assignment’s completion, including the successful implementation of several Form techniques (Encircling, Quote Sandwiching) for support, must be reviewed in the weekly Canvas Announcements. A simplified checklist of the essay’s requirements will be included in the weekly Announcements.
