Your essay demonstrates sophisticated critical thinking skills; the argumentation is balanced rather than simplistic, noting counterarguments. /15 Research: Your essay is the product of sufficient reading and thinking. You have carefully and correctly read your sources and have demonstrated your ability to think critically about them and identify the material relevant to your claim; your analysis of your topic is thorough as well as creative. You have cited 5-6 sources. At least three of them are Tier 1 Sources (peer-reviewed academic publications) from the KPU library. /25 Organization: The ideas in your essay are well-organized and relate back to your thesis; major areas of argument and paragraphs are connected with transition sentences.

Quotations are well-chosen and properly integrated into your paragraphs, and when necessary, prefaced with contextual information. Paraphrases are well-selected and accurately convey the source’s information, and are also properly cited. /8 Conclusion: Essay is persuasively concluded. The thesis and main points of your essay are carefully summarized (well-written and engaging); the argument in the conclusion matches the thesis in your introduction but has been reworded. /8 Works Cited: This page is properly formatted (MLA 9 th edition). /5 Proofreading: Essay is polished, the product of careful planning, writing, and editing; essay contains few unclear and awkward sentences and is largely free of grammar errors and typos. Word choice errors rarely obscure your ideas. As climate change accelerates, there will be more and more climate refugees—stateless displaced people escaping from extreme environmental changes in their home countries. How can this global humanitarian crisis be prevented? Make an argument about what Canada can do to help climate migrants and to prevent its own citizens from experiencing climate displacement. You will need to examine specific, academic research on the human costs of climate change to successfully tackle this topic.
