Essay Three: the Argumentative (Multi-Source) Essay

You will write an argumentative/persuasive essay of approximately 1,200-1,500 words.

You may NOT choose any of the following topics: abortion, the legalization of marijuana or any other drug, euthanasia, the death penalty, binge drinking, school uniforms, or conspiracy theories about 9/11, JKF, or the moon landing.

Having said that, you are free to choose any other topic as long as it is one in which there is disagreement. You may find it easier to cull a topic from some current and controversial issue, but you don’t necessarily have to choose such controversies. You may, in fact, choose a hypothetical controversy, arguing what could happen were something to happen or be prevented from happening.

Your topic must allow you to make a debatable claim that reasonable people may disagree about. This will require outside evidence (examples, expert opinions, facts, statistics, personal testimony, etc.) to support and prove your position. If your topic does not allow for this, then you must choose another for this essay. Page 298 of the textbook provides some suggestions for topics.


Requirements

·      Your essay must be typed in 12-point font (Times, Times New Roman, Calibri, or Arial), be double-spaced, and use 1” margins; headings and pagination must conform to MLA format.

 

·      Failure to meet the minimum word count will result in an automatic deduction of 25 PTS.

 

·       You may not use the first-person voice (“I” or “We”) or the second-person voice (“You”) unless it is part of a direct quotation. Instead, use the third person (“He,” “She,” or “They”).
