Question Description

Statement of the assignment

Researching an Issue to Create a Call to Action

This research assignment involves idea generation (freewriting), focused research, synthesis of collected data and generated text, and presentation of findings in the form of a short-length research paper.

Elements of this assignment

  • Statement of the issue at hand (1 page) which expresses your understanding of the context in which this issue is situated
  • Dialogue (two 1-page position statements, each of which reflects your findings on two conflicting sides of your researched topic)
  • Persuasive essay, or peroration, drawn from research (1-2 pages; this will most likely become the draft of your “call to action” which proposes a solution)
  • Works Cited page, along with a photocopy or printout of the first body page of each source used
  • Final Draft of paper which incorporates your argument and the major positions at stake within this topic (1000 word essay, 4-6 pages, typed, double spaced, 12 point standard font)
  • Metaletter

Research Topics

Your assignment for this research essay is to analyze a current social, environmental, or political issue and provide a recommendation for action. These topics are quite broad; for this essay project you will choose a topic and narrow it sufficiently to create a compelling, researchable, and arguable thesis.

For each of these topics, literally millions of pages have already been written. What I want from you is an exploration of the topic that gets several layers beneath the surface. What is the biggest debate in your topic area? Explore it in your dialogue. Then decide for yourself what matters, what people need to know, and what needs to happen. You might argue for systematic healthcare for children in America; you might argue for (or against) tying high-stakes testing to school funding; you might argue that leveling the standards in schools hurts more students than it helps, or that VA funding and support need to increase.Whatever it is, drill down, get the meaty information, and see what seems to matter.

You’ll need at least 2 sources for this essay.

Please note: Several topics are off limits for this project:

  • Gun Control
  • Abortion
  • the Death Penalty
  • The Wall
  • anything to do with Welfare.

That leaves open many, many other topics, and I look forward to seeing what you might choose to pursue!

against civilians. Police brutality has been a widespread issue in the U.S. since the 19th century to
Racial profiling can be regarded as the primary cause of police brutality. Americans of all
races and ethnic backgrounds may have suffered police brutality. The most affected victims have
been the African-Americans (Taylor, 2013). Police brutality among the African-American can be
attributed mainly to racial profiling mostly among the whites in the police departments. Police
brutality among the Muslim-Americans has been blamed on the notion that they want to uncover
presumed terrorists. This has led to practicing a culture where the police officer regard the
minority communities as generally deserving punishment while those from the minority groups
see the police officers as oppressors.
Another factor attributed to police brutality is the implementation of the distinct
institutional culture by the urban police departments. Officers have been accustomed to group
solidarity and loyalty to the police departments. The institutionalized system of training that
