1) introduce and evaluate one or more significant efforts to address the problem you described in your CP; and then
2) develop an argument about which of the efforts to address the problem work best, explain why, and offer possible next steps; OR make the case that none of the efforts to address the problem works, explain why, and offer possible next steps. Unlike the CP, an expository essay that asks you to use your research to describe the problem, the AP requires you to stake out a clear position in a thesis statement that you must defend through deeply engaged research.
At a minimum the argument in your AP should integrate evidence from 6-8 new sources, at least two of which should involve complex, comprehensive arguments that substantively consider the obstacles at work in solving the problem you addressed in your CP. You may continue to use relevant sources that you found while researching for the Contexts Project. Keep in mind that the total number of sources for the entire project’s bibliography is 12-20 sources.
Your final submission for Part Two should be an approximately 2000-word multimodal composition. It should be formatted in MLA style, with parenthetical citations, a Works Cited page, and a descriptive academic title.
