Write a well-organized, professionally documented argumentative research paper. Your paper should address the research issue you identified in Module 1, discuss the authors you cited in the annotated bibliography, and add your own perspective on the issue. You are evaluating the work of professionals in your field and also adding your voice to the professional conversation. Your draft should be 8-10 pages in length, not including the References/Works Cited page, title page, and abstract.
In the introduction, you should present the issue, provide background (history or context of the issue, its importance), and state the claim you are making and will support in the remainder of the paper. This claim, or thesis statement, should be the very last sentence of your introduction. In the body of the paper, you need to present reasons to support your claim and evidence to support your reasons. You also need to summarize and respond to opposing views (counterarguments) at some point.
You will receive feedback based on your ability to present the issue at hand and your ability to present effective reasons that are supported with legitimate evidence. Your reasons also need to include a response to counterarguments that you might understandably expect. You will not be evaluated on the position you take (your “opinion”) but on how well you support your position.
This paper will be critiqued using these main criteria:
1. Content of the paper according to the elements and structure described above.
2. Appropriate use of source material (quotations, paraphrasing, summary).
3. Readability (grammatical, spelling, effective sentence structure).
4. Appropriate documentation style for your major (APA or MLA formatting).
