Important Dates:

Topic:We focused on three content units this semester: Higher Education (Unit 1), Social Media and Education (Unit 2), and Media Literacy (Unit 3). Your essay should integrate ideas from at least two of these units. Also, the essay should include information (quotations, paraphrases, and/or summaries) from at least one source per unit.


An example of a synthesis essay topic might be “Social media can help international students solve adjustment issues when they study abroad.” This essay addresses concepts from Units 1 and 2. In this essay, you might present relevant ideas from the articles “International students in English-speaking universities: Adjustment Factors” and “How Social Media can and will impact higher education” (for example) and then propose how different kinds of social media can help international students adjust to the variety of issues they have while studying abroad.



Step 1: Essay preparation and writing

  1. Gather your class materials from the three units we’ve studied. Look for connections between the sources we’ve used. Write down all the ideas that come into your mind and then go back and narrow them down until you find the topic you’re most interested in writing about. Your synthesis of the selected sources will comprise the body of your essay.
  1. Formulate an idea about the topic that is new and hasn’t been addressed in the class sources. Support this new idea with personal experience or other class sources/discussions.Your new idea will comprise the conclusion of the essay.
  2. Find a way to introduce your essay that gives general information about the topic you’ve chosen and its significance. You should also introduce any texts you plan to use in the essay


Step 2: Write and revise your paper

  1. Using the notes/thoughts you have from Step 1, write your paper.
  2. Take a look at the paper and be sure it follows all the guidelines on the assignment sheet and the scoring rubric.
  3. Remember that you must include an appropriate reference to the sources each time you refer to them.
  4. Make an appointment with a tutor (bringing the assignment sheet and rubric with you) to go over it several days before the due date and make any revisions the tutor suggests.
  5. If there’s anything you’re still unsure about, make an appointment with your instructor.


Step 3: Format your paper and submit it

  1. Be sure to:
    • Use Times New Roman, size 12 font
    • Double-space the lines
    • Have 1” margins on the left, right, top, and bottom of the page
    • Include your name, your class and section, and the date at the top of the paper.
  1. Submit your paper via Turnitin on Canvas by ___11:59 pm on December 4th _____


Assessment: The Critical Thinking Paper is worth 7.5% of the final course grade. The instructor will use a rubric to evaluate the papers. Areas of evaluation will include application of course content, task-related skills, and language use.
