Argumentative Research Essay
Students will write a 5-6 page research paper on one of the topics studied in class.
This paper will include:
an introduction that gives background information on the topic and has a thesis statement that takes a clear stand
a concession
arguments that are fully developed
counterarguments and provide evidence to support the thesis
the use of appropriate language to support the argumentative genre
and a conclusion summarizes the main points and reaffirms the strength of the argument.
This paper must be informed by a minimum of 3 reliable and vetted sources. Most students will use 5+. You can (and should!) use the same sources you selected and evaluated for the Annotated Bibliography.
You will be expected to submit an outline, working publish, and other process writing components before submitting the final paper.
also, the instructor wants the Annotated Bibliography for all the resource
an Annotated Bibliography
A bibliography is a list of sources (books, journals, Web sites, periodicals, etc.) one has used for researching a topic. Bibliographies are sometimes called “References” or “Works Cited” depending on the style format you are using. A bibliography usually just includes the bibliographic information (i.e., the author, title, publisher, etc.).
An annotation is a summary and/or evaluation. Therefore, an annotated bibliography includes a summary and/or evaluation of each of the sources
