Purpose: You will demonstrate the ability to enter complex conversations utilizing your judgment, knowledge, and understanding of nuanced positions.
Skills: The purpose of this Researched Argument will allow you to practice and develop the following skills that you will need in this course, school, and professional fields:
· Provide evidence for claims
· Use academic language to write your nuanced position
· Recognizing and validating opposing claims
· Provide academic response to opposing claims
Task: You will make a clear, unique argument about your topic. Considering the synthesis of ideas from your Literature Review and the Rhetorical Analysis, you will provide a new direction to fill in a gap that the academic conversation is missing. This new direction can take the form of an argument, suggesting further research (how, why, and its importance), or by providing lesson plans to show implementation of assignment (for education topics if you want). The paper needs to be focused on your solution, not your sources arguments.
· Identifying an issue, propose a “solution” for problem (the solution becomes the argument), and explain how “solution” will help solve/alleviate problems within that issue.
· Provide reasons for your claim without logical fallacies.
· Provide counterargument
· Logical organization/structure that is guided by thesis
· 5-7 pages (+ a works cited page), Times New Roman font, double-spaced with regular margins, and proper MLA format
· 5-8 academic peer-reviewed sources (these do not have to be different sources than you have for the literature review).
