You are required to submit the FINAL copy of this assignment, but you may first submit an optional
DRAFT. This will allow you to receive qualitative feedback that can inform your revision. You should
always avoid focusing solely on the graderâ€™s DRAFT feedback; use the feedback as a supplement to the
course lessons and your own revision ideas. Always expect to revise beyond what the DRAFT grader
The Classification assignments requires you to organize a topic into categories and then
provide examples of what characteristics fit into each category.
You have several options for this assignment, so you will need to choose one:
? Classify the types of writers
? Classify the types of bosses/supervisors
? Classify the types of monsters
? Classify the types of characters
? Classify the types of heroes
? Classify the types of dance
? Classify the types of teachers
? Classify the types of roommates
? Classify the types of dates
? Classify the types of mothers
Keep in mind that these are general topics. You may need to further subdivide these general
topics in order to have a specific enough topic for your essay. For instance, dance may be
divided into cultural dances, for one, and then even further into Mexican dances. Famous
guitarists could be divided into rock guitarists, and then further into bass guitarists.
Regardless of the topic you choose, you will need to identify its classifications and provide
enough evidence to prove that your classifications are correct. This evidence (details,
reasons, and/or examples) needs to be corroborated by at least one other credible1 source.
Failure to use a credible source for support will constitute a point deduction. This resource
from the course will help you understand more about evaluating sources.
Properly cite othersâ€™ ideas and language according to MLA guidelines (this resource from the
course will help). If you use any exact words from your source, you must put those exact
words in quotation marks and included a parenthetical citation. If you put source material
into your own words (i.e., if you paraphrase), you will not need quotation marks, but you will
need a parenthetical citation. Make sure that your parenthetical citations correspond to the
works cited entry. In addition to the evidence, you must explain how the evidence you
present proves that your classifications are correct.
1 Please note: Basic dictionary sources, user-edited websites (e.g., Wikipedia, eHow, etc.), and sites that house
databases of quotations are not considered â€œcredibleâ€ sources. You will lose points in the Research category of the
rubric if your sources arenâ€™t credible.
To make your classifications clear, examine only one classification per body paragraph. The
body of the essay should follow a logical progression. You may choose to organize your essay
based on any one of the following:
? Move from the least important classification to the most important classification
? Move from the most important classification to the least important classification
? Move from the largest category to the smallest one
? Move from the smallest category to the largest one
? If the classifications occur in a set space, move from left to right OR right to left
? If the classifications occur in a set space, move from back to front OR front to back
As with all college writing, your essay should have a strong thesis statement in addition to an
introduction, body, and conclusion.
Here is an idea of how you might introduce your essay if you were classifying types of sports
fans2: On a clear, warm evening in June, thousands of Americans might be getting ready to
watch a baseball game. These fans may stop by concessions to grab a hot dog and cold drink
before ambling to their seats, and they might be in the grandest arena or in the smallest of
baseball parks. But regardless of location, any given baseball game will find among its fans
the following three types: the Fair-weather Fan, the Diehard Fan, and the Newbie.
Tip: Notice how this introduction provides vivid description of the scene while preparing the
reader for what the main focus will be.
As seen in the example above, you might use this as a simple guideline in crafting your thesis:
The three most ubiquitous baseball fans are the (first fan type), the (second fan type), and (third fan
