Project #58074 - Persuasive Essay

ENGL 100

Essay #1 Guidelines and Rubric

 

            For your first essay, we are going to write persuasive issue essays; as such, I want to see you take a position on the issue of athletics in colleges and universities and support that stance. Specifically, I would like you to support either the position that (A) universities should not offer scholarships to athletes; athletics can be offered at the club level at a college, but should not be treated differently than any other group activity at the school OR (B) universities should treat athletes at their school like employees. They should be offered a contract with fair wages and treated like any other employee. This would mean they can take classes at a discount, but also that they can be fired if they don’t live up to the terms of their contract.

            In your essay, you will have to choose one of these two positions and persuade an audience that this policy should be adopted here at UMBC. We will watch a short video about college athletics that introduces many topics you may want to explore. You may also use information included under the NCAA’s Big Bucks Bracket heading. (If you want to quote anything from either the report or the video, simply place it in quotation marks with the source in parentheses behind it.  “Nike’s allowance to supply Alabama is valued at $2.3 million per year” (NCAA’s Big Bucks Bracket).) You do not have to quote from either source though; you may simply use what you believe or your own experience to support your argument. Your essay should use 12 point Times New Roman font, be double-spaced, feature standard margins, and include your name, the class and section number, and the date on the front page.
