Position Argument Essay Assignment
In English 101, you had to write a classical academic argument essay. The Position Argument Essay asks you to develop a more comprehensive classical academic argument on a topic that builds off our course theme. The classical argumentative essay is not merely your personal opinion about a topic, but an argument that provides scholarly evidence of research (i.e. various sources, interviews, quotes, and sufficient statistical data) to support your position. In other words, it is participating on a debate on an issue using evidence (i.e. various sources, interviews, quotes, and sufficient statistical data).
First identify and take a position on a topic that has multiple sides. You can take your cues from the readings included in your textbook, class discussions, or discussions with your instructor. Your essay will:
• articulate your position on the topic;
• provide thorough support for your stance with relevant and reliable evidence (examples, information from experts, data, etc.)
• represent an opposing position on the topic;
• effectively refuting the opposition.
Before proceeding with your work on the assignment you must present your topic and text for your instructor’s review and explain what makes this text an interesting subject in a 1-page Statement on Planned Research (HWK 4). The topic must be approved by your instructor.
Doing research is fundamental to putting together an effective paper. To this end you must conduct research on your topic and develop an Annotated Bibliography of at least six sources (see HWK 5 instructions). The bibliography can be changed in the final paper, but the annotated bibliography text you submitted will be a graded assignment separate from your Essay Assignment.
As you are drafting, consider how you are supporting your claims about the text. Use quotes and other concrete details as evidence for your stance. Consider carefully the organization and coherence of your piece. Think about how to arrange your essay effectively and choose an organizational pattern from IC Chapter 13. Employ the means of persuasion (logos, pathos, ethos) to help your reader see your point. Develop clear paragraphs that support your thesis. After drafting, revise and edit the Final Draft. It is essential you incorporate feedback (from peers, from the SVWC, or Smartthinking) at this step off the process based on two completed Feedback Sheets. You must also reflect on this process and develop a Review Memo laying out your steps.
The Review Memo is meant to make you cognizant about the writing process. Based on the feedback you received, lay out your process of incorporating feedback and what you learned about the writing process as such in a 1-page memo. Your answers will not be graded for grammar, but you should try to answer as specifically and clearly as possible. The memo should explicitly answer these four questions:
• What did you understand about the changes asked for in your essay by your reviewers? Be specific. • What changes did you make during the revision process and why?
• What changes did you not make and why not?
• What did you learn about the research process and how will you use it in the next assignment?
Your final draft should be five pages long, not counting the bibliography page (double-spaced, 12-point font, 1-inch margins). When citing your source(s), follow MLA or APA format (see IC Part 6 or Bowie State Course Library Guide for English 102). Steps: 1) Statement of Planned Research
(HWK 4) 2) Annotated Bibliography
(HWK 5) 3)
Draft 4) Feedback in Workshop and 2-Completed Feedback Sheets
5) Final Draft
6) Revision Memo Submission:
Submit your essay using the assignment tool on Blackboard by the date specified in the syllabus. Keep all materials from developing the essay—you will need them later for the final assignment in the course. Assessment: Refer to the rubric provided for details on how your essay will be assessed. Read it before submitting so you can make sure you’re meeting requirements.
