Project #24180 - into the wild

COM 102—Essay #2
Argument

LENGTH:  1000-1250 words
DUE DATE:  3/3/14

OVERVIEW: For this argumentative essay you must use the text Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer to form an opinion about the mental stability of Chris McCandless. Your thesis should state whether you believe Chris McCandless is mentally stable or not. First person should NOT be used for this assignment. This paper should be written in third person.

SOURCES: A minimum of three additional sources should be used to lend support to your argument. One of those sources must be print and should be found by using an electronic database. In order to meet the requirements for the assignment, a print source from a database must be used.

OTHER REQUIREMENTS: Your paper should include a minimum of four quotes (a good paper will be no more than 10-15% quotes). You should have one for “The Rebuttal” and one for each of the unique points you make to support your thesis (these should ALL come from your outside research).  You will need a minimum of two in-text citations.

PLAN: Here is a sample for a basic structure, which is close to the classical structure:

Introduction- The introduction should include an attention getter, relevant information and a clear thesis (in that order). Relevant info should provide key information about Chris McCandless and mention the text Into the Wild. Inclusion of the controversy presented by Krakauer should be mentioned just prior to the thesis statement. This may entail including a quote from Into the Wild depending on space. A background paragraph is optional and should follow the introduction if used.

The Body – You should have a minimum of three unique points to support your thesis. If you intend to use a comparison to another individual (via the Bob Marley Rule), it must be in addition to your three points.

The Rebuttal—Respond to any differing views, again citing specific quotes, as if you were actually answering your opposition.  Therefore, you should be saying why their views are incorrect.  Use evidence from any supporting readings.  This section should be brief.

Conclusion – Begin with a concluding statement (restating your thesis, but not word-for-word). This should be followed by a recap of each of your points, complete with a brief summary of your evidence for each. End with a closing remark.

Works Cited—MLA Style, separate page (or following the last paragraph if the entire works cited fits.
