This essay assignment is the culmination of all your previous work in this module. You have
in this module. You have already engaged in the beginnings of the writing process of this essay. You have:

Condensed your ideas down into manageable points around a working thesis.
Displayed knowledge of Description essays from Learning Activities

Consulted with a writing tutor to find areas of strength and areas of improvement.
Finally, you will now compose the final draft of a description essay that:
contains a clear thesis

uses 2-4 main ideas (points) that support your overall essay thesis
allows you to expand on your chosen topic
This essay assignment represents the first steps in writing any written essay for any academic course. The idea of thesis and support are the cornerstones of all essays. They represent the last part of the writing process. However, you may still revise your essay before final submission. This form of essay writing is the basis for all other academic writing pursuits. This skill translates to almost all careers that require critical thinking, critical reading, and responding in writing. Practicing "how to" write an essay carries over into any field's task of "what" you need to write. This skill will help with all formal writing.
Write a 900-word essay, in MLA format, about a person or fictional character in whom you have an interest.
Select a subject (person or fictional character you admire)
Look to your Discussion (D1) and Writing Activity 2 (WA2) for your subject
The person may be current or historical
Some fictional characters have positive traits that can be identified.
Select several (2-4) traits about the person or character that you admire and write about these. These will be the essay's main ideas.
Biographical information should be used only to support claims.
Your essay should focus on the traits you admire. Do not write a biography or tell a story.
Example of what not to do: This person was born in 1979. They were born in middle Tennessee. They went to elementary school is 1985. They graduated in 1998.
Instead, follow this example: This person was born in middle Tennessee. Entering elementary in school in 1985 was hard for them. They never felt that they belonged in kindergarten. However, they persevered, learning that school was a place for them to grow and be themselves.
Focus on the "why" you admire them instead of a list of traits. In the above example, perseverance and learning to be themselves are the traits the writer of the essay admires.
Organize your main ideas to establish the essay's pattern of organization.
Your main ideas (traits you have chosen) need to be clearly organized.
Decide in what order you wish to discuss these main ideas (traits)
This organization needs to be presented in your introduction, preferably as the last sentence of your introduction in the thesis statement.
Note: your thesis is generally the last sentence in your introduction, but it not a requirement.
Follow this structure throughout the rest of the essay.
Always check to see if your main ideas/topic sentences, in each paragraph, relate back to your thesis statement.
Compose 5 well-developed paragraphs that support a clear thesis statement that is arguable.
5 paragraph minimum
introduces your essay and presents your thesis
three body paragraphs
Each paragraph contains one of your chosen admirable traits about your subject
expressed in a topic sentence in your paragraph
Each trait needs to transition to the next one in the next paragraph
look to your chosen pattern of development
rephrases your traits into one last paragraph
reflects the earlier thesis, but with the knowledge of your traits expressed throughout the essay
This essay is a basic form of an argument essay. The essay should make an argument such as that the person or character selected is worthy of admiration because of the traits selected.

6.PLAN AND DESIGN CHAPTER
Hi, my thesis is on the locus of control and psychological well-being of adolescents. I have completed
adolescents. I have completed the Literature review. I have to plan a research design for the thesis. ABOUT THE THESIS:
Population- 13+ to 19 years adolescents
No of IV s- 2 that is, Gender is the First IV and Locus of Control ( LOC) is the second IV
Levels of IV- Gender has 2 levels ( male and female). LOC has two levels ( Internal Locus of Control and External Locus of Control). Both IV s are categorical variables.
List of DV s-
1. Self Esteem
4. Academic motivation
5. Exam Anxiety
6. Life Style
Each DV will be measured by using appropriate Statistical scales. All DVs will be taken as continuous variables. All the scales measure the quantitative aspect only.
DV MEASUREMENT: Each of the scales that will be used to measure DV contains several areas or dimensions or sub-categories. For example, the self-esteem scale contains 78 items divided into 6 categories like personal, social, emotional, academic, intellectual and moral.
THESIS AIM- To check the impact of IV s on each of these DV s in isolation and also investigate the interaction effects between gender and locus of external. I will be using the SPSS package for calculations.
Problem 1: Which is the most appropriate Statistical test or design that should be used here? I believe a 2x2 ANOVA will be best suited here.
Problem 2: If I am measuring the impact of IV s on each DV in isolation, should I use several Two Way AONVA tables or a single MANCOVA table?
Problem 3: Each of the DV is measured using scales containing several dimensions. Are such dimensions of the scales need to be treated as the levels of the dependent variables? In other words, do the levels of DV are decided as per the dimensions of the scale that was used to measure the DV? If this is so, then even if I am measuring the DV s in isolation; each DV will have multiple levels, which in turn will change my design from Two Way ANOVA to perhaps MANCOVA? What is the right approach here?
Note: I have not intentionally divided DV into any levels.
Kindly help me to arrive at a statistically significant research design! If possible, kindly briefly explain the type of the design as well as the rational or suitability of the sign for my research problem.
