Your assignment is to write an essay that explains and describes a scientific process. Take some time to brainstorm for a topic that you find interesting, and then make the process interesting for your reader. Do some research to get your facts in order. Keep in mind the techniques and ideas that we have discussed in class (review your Zinsser as necessary); your goal is to write an interesting, uncluttered, and clear essay. Feel free to incorporate narrative aspects into your process, but be aware that you do not have to do so.
The essay should be one to three pages and is due April 24.
You must cite all information that is not commonly known. Refer to Rules for Writers if you have questions about citations. Try to avoid using footnotes. Do your best to explain everything in the essay itself.
