Ow does consumer society contribute to the garbage problem?

Research Criteria: Your essay should use a minimum of FIVE scholarly sources (book chapters, articles from scholarly journals, statistical information, interviews with experts), one of which should be Rogers Gone Tomorrow. You may use information from newspaper articles, documentaries, or materials from environmental web sites, as well, but these will not be considered part of the five scholarly sources. If you are not sure about a source, bring it to me and I will help you decide. Your goal as a researcher is to become an expert on your subject and to have at your disposal the facts necessary to convince a skeptical audience. A thorough researcher also reads up on the opposing perspectives in order to create a stronger argument of her/his own. Throughout the essay you will need to appeal to your audience. Choose the tone and vocabulary you think will be most persuasive. Document and cite all sources correctly using MLA format.



Purpose: The purpose of this project is not only to write an effective argument based on solid research, but also genuinely to try to make a difference outside the boundaries of this classroom. In other words, the purpose is actually to help solve a serious environmental problem.



Evaluation: Essays will be evaluated on the basis of persuasiveness and argumentation, knowledge and understanding, research and documentation, and clarity.



Length: 5-7 pages (1250-1350 words)
