I’m working on a writing project and need guidance to help me study.This project asks you to trace a specific event that contains a real-world equity-based problem and to use writing in a way that allows you to grapple with the complexity of this problem.First, identify a real-world event in which equity is a concernSecond, you will sift through information, research and explore how this equity event was covered in social media and on the news, that is, what was written about this event.You will consider the accessibility, credibility, and stability of the messages, information, and knowledge that spiral out from an event in the hours, days, weeks, months, years, and perhaps decades following that event.Third, you will compose an exploratory essay to trace this event and the information that cycles in, around, and through it. You will use your writing to attempt to arrive at knowledge about the equity-based concern and the event that encapsulates it.You will try to capture the movement of the event and the information about the event in your essay. You will also try to craft your writing so that your essay follows the timing of the event and the equity-based concern it involves. You will NOT be taking a position on this event. In this exploratory essay, you should simply explore the equity event. You should be concerned with the who, what, where, when, why and how of the event you’ll be working on this project in a process over 3 steps. In the first step of the project cycle, you’ll pick an equity event in our discussion, and you’ll think about your own definition of equity. Next, you’ll work on researching your selected equity event.The second step of the project cycle, you’ll compose a short rough draft. Then you’ll do peer review on that short rough draft and then you’ll work on revising and expanding that short rough draft into a longer rough draft for the Eli Review cycle in the third week of the project cycle.Structuring Your EssayA possible essay structure you could use would be:-introduce the equity event (tell readers when and where it occurred)- explore how the events unfolded-go through a list of the facts of what happened-discuss who was involved in the event-explore several (3-4) pieces of researched writing on this event (social media posts, news coverage, etc.-examine how the event ended, if it’s still being covered/talked about today in the news or on social mediaFormatting RequirementsYour exploratory essay should be a minimum of 4 full pages (double spaced) and should be in APA format (title page, in-text citations, references page): on the references page should be cited according to APA standards: final essay should be set in 12-point Times New Roman font on 1-inch margins.
