Using one of the techniques outlined in class and gleaned from the reading, write a 4 to 6 page argument paper. You will use reasoned argument to justify your position on your topic.
Your paper should:
*Identify the issue or issues
*Take a clear position
*Create a strong, refined thesis and central argument (SUBJECT + POSITION + REASONSx3)
*Use secondary and primary sources to support your argument
*Avoid asserting opinion without qualification
*Take time to both ‘tell’ the reader about your main points with definitions and analysis (you)
*Illustrate your points with data, evidence, and examples (sources)
*Use logical transitions to guide the reader from thesis to conclusion
Strive to write a paper that flows from sentence-to-sentence and paragraph-to-paragraph.
