EN 1101 Argumentation Paper Packet

Your assignment, if you choose to accept it (and you’d better, it’s worth 20% of your grade!) is to write a fully fleshed out Argumentation paper (6G) on a debatable topic that interests you. Avoid logical fallacies, include plenty of logical analysis and concrete evidence (from credible sources) in your appeal, and carefully consider a primary counterargument to your stance and (respectfully) refute it. Here are some sample controversial statements you might consider arguing for or against:

  1. Donald Trump’s proposed wall is a reasonable and effective way to address the illegal immigration problem in the United States.
  2. Reality television lacks any artistic value.
  3. Technological advances are on pace to create a jobless society, in which guaranteed minimum incomes will become necessary.
  4. Offering universally free higher education is a good use of taxpayer dollars.
  5. The Academy Awards represent the types of movies the American public cares about.
  6. Health insurance companies should not be allowed to reject or upcharge users based on preexisting conditions.

This paper should include properly cited quotes or paraphrases from at least three credible sources to support your thesis.

Your essay should contain a thesis statement that gives me an idea of how you will back this point up and how your support will be organized throughout. It should also fulfill the other requirements of your rubric.

1200 words (five pages double spaced 12 point font). Please include your name, a title, the date, and your class hour at the top, as well as page numbers throughout.

Assignment 6C: Annotated Bibliography

Your third assignment in the creation of your Argumentation Paper (6G) is to create an annotated bibliography (6C). An annotated bibliography formalizes your research process. It forces us to spend a bit more time thinking about the sources we’re using, whether we can trust them, and how we are using them in our writing. For this assignment, you should take your thesis statement and outline (Assignment 6B) and research one academic quality source that you can use to support the arguments in your compare/contrast paper.

You will need to use library resources to find one reliable source. Your annotated bibliography should include four distinct parts:

  1. A full citation of that source in MLA Style as it would appear on your Works Cited page.
  2. A short one paragraph summary of the important information contained in that source.
  3. A thoughtful one paragraph explanation of why you found this source to be credible.
  4. A short one paragraph explanation of how you could use this source to support your thesis.

Other than the citation, each part of your annotated bib should consist of complete sentences. Make sure to visually distinguish each part of the assignment.

Your research will start as an in-class activity, but you do not have to complete all parts of the assignment in class. Your source must be run by me during class, in the library, in order to verify that it is of academic quality. Be prepared to summarize your source and explain its credibility when you share it with me.

Sources can be electronic or print, but should be of academic quality (no .com, no wiki, no dictionaries or encyclopedias).

Type the results of this assignment to submit with your other assignments when your final draft is due (Assignment 6G).

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!

Assignment 6D: Outline

Your fourth assignment in the creation of your Argumentation Paper (6G) is to take your thesis statement (6B) and expand it into an outline (6D). For this exercise you should use this handout as your guide and create a printed two-to-three page assignment that outlines a five paragraph structure for your essay based on an introduction, three support paragraphs, and a conclusion. Per our discussion in class, the three support points from your thesis should be the basis for your three support paragraphs.

Since you’ll be including source material for this paper, you can record key quotes or paraphrases (and their in-text citations) as examples where appropriate. Make sure to include your explanation or analysis of the source material you choose to use.

Please include your name, date, etc., as you would on any other assignment and bring one hard copy to your Conference (see Course Schedule announcement for dates).

See the next two pages for a helpful breakdown of how to assemble a complete outline. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!

Assignment 6E: First Draft

Your fifth assignment in the creation of your Argumentation Paper (6G) is to take your outline (6D) and expand it into a full draft of your paper (6E). For this exercise you should use this handout as your guide and create a printed two-to-three page assignment that follows the five paragraph structure of your outline, but is fleshed out into complete sentences, and includes a clear introduction, support paragraphs, concrete examples, and a complete conclusion. Per our discussion in class, the three support points from your thesis should be the basis for your three support paragraphs. Please include your name, date, etc., as you would on any other assignment and bring three hard copies to workshop (see Course Schedule announcement for dates).

Remember, this paper should include at least three credible sources (each with MLA cited quotes or paraphrases) to support your thesis, as well as sufficient analysis and concrete examples.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!

Assignment 6F: Revision Exercise Assignment 6G: Final Draft

Your sixth and seventh assignments in the creation of your Argumentation Paper (6G) are to take your first draft (6E), to do a revision exercise on it (6F), and then to fully revise and edit your first draft to create a final draft (6G) for submission in class.

6F: Revision and Editing Exercise

For this exercise you should review (look again) at your first draft and type full sentence answers to the following prompts:

  1. What part of your paper, if any, can use expansion and what specific information can you add there to make it stronger?
  2. What part of your paper, if any, gets off topic, and what can you remove to help?
  3. Is your organization strong? If so, what makes it strong? If not, or if it could use improvement still, what can you move or substitute to help? Consider creating a reverse outline to help.
  4. How credible are the sources you used? How do you know?
  5. Examine your paper’s tone. Is it too informal or conversational? If so, what can change?
  6. Do you have any word choice errors that spellcheck wouldn’t find?
  7. Do you have any coma-splice errors, run ons, or sentence fragments?
  8. Do you have any fluffy word choices?
  9. Are all of your sources properly documented in MLA style?
  10. What is one specific step you can take to improve your paper before submitting it?

Only one copy of Assignment 6F is needed. It should be submitted along with 6A, 6B, 6C, 6D, and 6E when you turn in 6G.

6G: Final Draft-Technological Unemployment
In the rush to put the machine to tasks difficult for human beings, technology is doing
more than that. It is threatening to completely replace him. Technology came to increase the
abilities of human beings beyond their limitations. Yet, technological development is reducing
the need for human effort. What makes this issue such a persistent concern is the fact that there
are insufficient efforts to curb it. Also, the economic structure is created in a way that it makes
human beings dependent on employment to survive. This paper, as a result, argues that due to
technological development that is reducing the need for human labor, the insufficient efforts to
curb it, and an economic structure that makes human beings dependent on employment to
survive, technological unemployment will create a jobless society requiring guaranteed
minimum wages.
The first argument in the quest to support this claim is to show that technological
development is reducing the need for human effort. Karl Marx stated: "that machinery is the
surest mean of lengthening the working-day" (Campa). Indicating that industries are based on a
promised and reliable pattern of consistent manufacturing construction, assembling or service
provision. The production of goods and services relies on undefined effort and not necessarily
labor. Technology promises automation of all production and operational activities with few
errors, regulations, and issues brought forth in dealing with human beings (Campa). Machine
automation produces a laborless effort that is still useful, even more, efficient to the production

of goods and services. Only the creation and maintenance of machines have the potential to
remain human-based until as in other areas they can be significantly replaced (Campa). Labor
from human beings is, therefore, dispensable in technologically developed industries. With these
facts, it is easily accepted that the continued advancement of technology threatens human labor.
Consequentially, attempts to ensure this does not happen should be in place.
Surprisingly, there are insufficient efforts triggered to curb this impending issue.
Economists reassure that technological unemployment is unlikely to occur influencing major
policymakers against prioritizing the issue (Hughes). This information establishes that the
government relies on economic reports and analysis to change policies. Instead, the immediate
benefits of technology in terms of economic benefits harnessed in the now steer leaders away
from dealing with the problem posed by technology in employment (Hughes). Therefore, much
of the focus is on economic growth and sustainability which technology promises. Some analysts
recommend policies that slow innovation, mandate human employees, lower retirement ages,
national tax incentives, government investment on educating workers for high skill occupations
among others (Hughes). These recommended policies to curb technological unemployment are
dismissed as controversial, immature and harmful to the economy. As a result, therefore, little is
being done to prevent the tragic results of unchecked technological development in causing
technological unemployment. Nevertheless, the basic question might be why exponential
technological growth has such an aggravating effect on human welfare.
It is how economies are structured that makes human beings dependent on employment
to survive. People strive to learn and work hard to maintain financial stability to ensure their
holistic welfare (Campa). Current economies require people to exchange labor for income and
money for need satisfaction making labor crucial to human survival. But if the economy is

structured, as is the case in a socialistic state, to prioritize human welfare in that the government
secures it indefinitely, the risk of unemployment would not be as significant (Hughes). There is a
chance, therefore, that fully automated technology is controlled or regulated to a point where
human beings are still needed. The global population is rising with the elderly, and therefore
dependent, population increasing in ratio to the working. For these reasons, economic
restructuring will barely assist in safeguarding the unemployed and guaranteed minimum income
will still become necessary. Ultimately, economies will require impossibly difficult restructuring
to support human beings in a technologically unemployed economy making guaranteed
minimum income necessary.
In conclusion, this paper has argued that the demand for human labor is decreasing as a
result of technological development and insufficient controls, as well as the nature of economies,
have influenced this change which will eventually make guaranteed minimum income necessary.
