Question description

For this essay you will need to pick an argumentative topic that focuses on a current problem with the environment.  Start by watching a Science and Nature documentary (published within the last 5 years) on Netflix or another movie streaming website. After watching the documentary, do some basic Internet research about the topic (do not use the same sources as the documentary) and find at least 3 other credible sources.  Keep in mind that you can conduct your own interviews with experts, such as your professors. Then, form an assertive and debatable thesis statement and develop your 3 to 5 page argument in support of that thesis.  

Here are some writing tips for you: An effective argument must convey an authoritative, objective, formal tone and must also address and refute counter-arguments. Present the opposing side of the argument fairly. (Sometimes it is a good idea to bring these up in the first paragraph so that you can refute them throughout the rest of the paper with credible evidence.) Be sure to avoid first and second person point of view.  Use rhetorical appeals to emphasize the significance and relevance of the topic. 

*All sources used for this essay must be published within the last 5 years.

Here are a few documentaries to get you started on this assignment:

Plastic Paradise

The Great Invisible

The Ghosts in Our Machine


King Corn

Give Me Shelter


Vanishing of the Bees

Assignment source requirements:

You must cite at least 4 credible and individual sources

You must cite at least 1 Science/Nature documentary

You must cite at least 3 other credible Internet sources

You can use a personal interview as one of the 3 other required sources
