ESSAY THREE ASSIGNMENT SHEET: OPPOSING VIEWPOINTS
For this assignment, you will write a five-page essay in which you take a position about a debatable topic within your academic field. You must propose a position and adequately support that position with appropriate sources. You must quote from at least five academic sources, and at least one of the quotes you pull out must oppose your argument in some way—even if only tangentially.
This comes with the caveat that you cannot write about the forbidden topics—euthanasia, global warming, stem cell research, the legalization of marijuana, abortion, capital punishment, gay marriage, or creationism/evolution because you can easily buy an essay from the Internet on those topics.
You must make sure that the argument that you bring up to support the opposing view at least has an extremely valid point worth brining up in a five-page essay. If it is not valid, why raise that particular opposition to your viewpoint? Also, make sure that you include a counterargument that explains why the opposing view is wrong.
Your essay should present your argument clearly, establish how it is a debatable position and why it is important for your readers to consider.
Use the best sources available to support your position. A paper on student athletes at Bronx CC, for example, would be neither authoritative nor convincing if no one from the athletic department was interviewed and if no departmental materials were addressed.
Be sure to balance the type of support you offer. Personal opinions and insights may be valuable, but facts and more studied research will support your position most effectively. Similarly, relying on “dry” facts may alienate readers who wish to understand who is being affected by your argument and why people should care about it.
Maintain an appropriate tone throughout the paper. Condescending or rude remarks will not aid in the presentation of your position, but will detract from your authority and credibility. Remember to engage your readers so that they will trust in what you are saying.
You must have a minimum of five sources—two professional journal articles, two reputable websites, and one consumer-oriented magazine articles. To some extent, the number of each of these could change depending upon what type of research your essay needs—but this will only occur with my approval and at my discretion.
Source material relied upon but not easily located must be handed in along with your research paper. Other materials may be requested, so always keep detailed bibliographical notes on where your sources are located.=
This assignment should help you maintain persuasive control of an argument throughout a longer piece of writing and help you use a variety of support to persuade your reader of your position. This also will be the culminating project to hone your critical thinking, writing strategies and argumentative skills.
