Mask On Or Off

Overview:

Read this article: Debate on Face Masks Divides Air-Travel Industry

• Gangitano, A. (2020, August 6). Debate on face masks divides air-travel industry. The

Hill, https://thehill.com/policy/transportation/510791-debate-on-face-masks-dividesair-travel-industry

You will be creating one paragraph that answers the following question:

• Why or why not should passengers be required to wear a face mask on a plane?

You will write that paragraph in third person (he, she, they, one, it, people) and

not use first (me, us, our, we, my, I) or second person (you, your). Most

academic writing is done in third person rather than first or second person

because the writing is more objective.

The key to this assignment is to make sure that the seven-to-nine sentence

paragraph you write only has one topic and includes evidence to support that

topic. Review the Citing Evidence interactive in this unit for information on how to

include a direct quote in your work. Your evidence should go in the middle of the

paragraph so that you can completely introduce it and explain how it supports

your topic. (See step-by-step instructions about creating a paragraph with

evidence.)

Instructions:

Answer the question above in one paragraph comprised of at least seven (7) to nine (9)

sentences. You should use one direct quote from the article.

1. First, begin your paragraph with a clear topic sentence that states where you

stand on the question above.

2. Next, include supporting sentences that explain and prove your topic. Next,

remember to not use the words “me,” “I,”“us,” “we,” “our,” “you,” and “your”.

3. Then, in the center of your paragraph, include a direct quote from the reading as

one piece of evidence to support your topic with an in-text citation that looks like

this: (Gangitano, 2020, p. #).

4. Finally, comment on and explain the quotation and wrap up your paragraph with

a concluding sentence.

Requirements:

• Please submit a Microsoft Word document or PDF.

• Include a title page, a proper font case per APA standards (Times New Roman

12 font is suggested), and a references page. The document should have 1-inch

margins and should be double-spaced.

• The direct quote should be included within the center of the paragraph (as

opposed to at the start or end).

• Use objective third-person language: “he,” “she,” “it,” “him,” “her,”

“himself,” “herself,” “itself,” “they,” “them,” “their,” “themselves.” (Avoid

subjective language such as “I,” “me,” “you,” “we,” “us,”etc.)

• The paragraph should be at least seven (7) sentences in length.

• Follow proper APA formatting when citing the quote and include the article’s

reference double-spaced on a reference page. For the reference page,

simply label the last page of your document References and add this

reference:
