In an essay of 4-6pages, you will take a stand on the issue and defend your position to a general audience of intelligent but skeptical readers. the key elements of an argumentative essay are: a clear and arguable position. at the heart of every argument is a claim with which people may reasonably disagree. to be arguable, a position must reflect one of at least two points of view, making reasoned argument necessary. The claim must be plausible, reasonable, supportable, and worthy of being taken seriously. Background information: The background information puts the thesis in context. Good reasons: BY itself, a position does not make an argument; the argument comes when a writer offers reasons to back the position up. • Convincing support for each reason. In the form of facts, statistics, examples, etc. • Appeals to readers` values. Effective arguers try to appeal to readers` values and emotions. • A trustworthy tone. Readers need to trust the writer. Writers can earn their trust by demonstrating that they know what they are talking about. • Careful consideration of other positions. No matter how reasonable and careful we are in arguing our positions, others may disagree or offer counterarguments or hold other positions. We need to consider those other views and to acknowledge them, and, if possible, refute them in our written arguments. Steps to write the draft: 1. Find a topic by thinking of issues that interest you. The topic must be focused but not too narrow. Avoid unarguable (subjective) claims, such as matters of taste or opinion, matters of fact, and claims based on belief or faith. Also avoid "hot topics" such as abortion, capital punishment, gun control, immigration, gay marriage, etc. These are important and interesting topics, but so much has been written about them that it is hard to come up with fresh ideas. To be safe, check your topic with me before writing the draft. 2. Begin by exploring what you know about the issue, reading and doing research. Consider whether the issue can be argued, and whether it is worth discussing. 3. Draft a thesis and qualify it. Is your claim true in some cases? In all cases? Is it true for everyone? Under certain circumstances? 4. Develop good reasons to support your thesis. Support the reasons with facts, statistics, testimony of authorities or experts, anecdotal evidence, scenarios, case studies and observation, textual evidence. 5. Use 2-3 sources to support your claim and cite them in MLA style (including a Works Cited page). 6. Identify and acknowledge other positions; if possible, refute them. 7. Include a conclusion that summarizes the main points. In your conclusion, you may also refer to the introduction, perhaps call for action (you are, after all, trying to modify the opinion or behavior of your readers). 8. Include a title. Tips: • Read the four sample argument papers attached (by Lund, Sanghvi, Hammond, and Jacobs). • Outline the draft (see pages 203-204). • In your opening sentences, give readers some background information about the issue you have chosen to debate, as you do this, establish your own credibility by showing that you are knowledgeable and fair-minded. • At the end of your first paragraph, state your thesis—your own stand on the debatable issue. (If you have a fair amount of background information, you may delay the thesis until the second paragraph.) • As much as possible, build common ground with readers who may disagree with your position on the issue; at the very least, don`t needlessly alienate them by striking the wrong tone. The paper should be 4-6 pages long and double-spaced. I am only asking for 4 pages if it exceeds let me know. also I have the example of the argument paper-I am unable to scan this to you Is there any way I can email these materials to you. I don`t have an upload feature.
