Researched Essay #2
Due 10/30 at 11:59p
The Basic Topic: You will be arguing which of three seemingly similar foods is the “best”–but NOT JUST the best tasting. Clearly, in order to do so you’ll need to explain

Outcomes/Logic: Research takes many forms, not all of which involve Googling a topic, reading articles, and responding to them. This essay will require you to:
First, understand that this essay will involve MANY smaller assignments that build on each other, all of which you’ll need to submit on time. Among these will be video proof of your taste test, a text summary of the taste test, charts and graphs regarding the chemical elements of the food samples, and an annotated bibliography that assesses articles you might be able to use in your essay.
The whole essay, finished, must be submitted by 11:59p on October 30.
The smaller parts will be due throughout the next month.
Late essays will be ding-ed by one letter grade per day afterwards; that is, if I get it later in the day or even the next morning, it’s still docked a letter grade. Please note that the late penalty is to REWARD the people who work to submit their essays on time.
The Essay must include…
Evaluation Biggies (i.e., what I’ll mainly look for in when I assess this assignment–please note that these points basically match the General Education Learning Outcomes rubric for Communication):
If you have questions, e-mail me, come see me during office hours, call me during office hours, or even try a Vulcan mid-meld (preferably also during office hours).

the essay needs to have nutritional info, also I need the (Draft of) Description of Food Taste Test
Submit Assignment, and OUTLINE of Nutritional/Chemical Info (Topic sentences)
