As explained in the Unit 4 Submission instructions, an argumentative essay takes a position on a debatable, controversial topic and provides evidence to support the position.
In Unit 4 you submitted your prewriting and preliminary research on the topic you picked. This week, you will submit a complete draft of your argumentative essay. Make sure the topic is appropriate and that you incorporate the feedback provided to you by your instructor on the choice of topic, the argument(s) you proposed to support it, and the supporting source you found. Based on what you have learned in this unit about information literacy, feel free to search for other sources to support your viewpoint that you feel are of better quality based on the TRAP test you used for the first submission for this unit.
NOTE: You may submit either the fully-completed template or use it as a guide, and submit only what you have included in the template.
Then, complete the following:
- Write a 5-paragraph argumentative essay. Your essay should include the following:
- Title page
- Opening paragraph (include your thesis statement)
- 3 body paragraphs that support your opinions/positions with source information
- Closing paragraph
- References page (source information for the quotation and paraphrase)
