    firmly chosen a topic for WA#1, you will select a topic of your choice, conduct searches in
    the library databases, focus the topic, and determine four sources to use in this essay. (Of
    course, you may have chosen a firm topic that you used for WA#1. Four of these five sources

    Organization for this Essay
    You will write an introductory paragraph with a thesis statement. Your thesis statement will
    demonstrate what the various sources say on the topic.
    You will also have various body paragraphs that show synthesis. In synthesizing sources, you
    will divide your paper into themes.

    For example, let us assume that you find four articles on the need for improved training for
    employees on mobile security issues. In this situation, assume that the four articles emphasize
    different issues. One emphasizes the costs of data breaches to companies. Another emphasizes
    reasons that employees do not practice safe cybersecurity practices. Another discusses methods for
    training employees. Another mentions costs of training for such initiatives.
    You might divide the paper into two categories:
    Reasons for implementing a training program
    Methods of and costs involved in implementing a training program

    After developing the body of your essay, you will want to write a strong conclusion. Remember to
    summarize the material developed in the body in the conclusion. You might also consider calling
    for further research on the topic in your conclusion.
