Question Description

What do we mean by an original, arguable claim? Ah, That's pretty difficult to describe. Here's what it's not:


1. General in nature

A professor of mine used to put it plainly: do not reinvent the wheel. If it's been said a million times, is evident in nature, and does not further the academic conversation . . . leave it be.

2. A direct reflection of your scholarly research

If you do not have your claim already formulated, it's easy to fall into the trap of allowing the research to argue for you! Strong essays have their claim already in hand and set out to find the research that can bend to their will, rather than the other way around. And: you need not exhaust yourself searching for the exact statement. After all, if you find it, you need to drop your argument. It's been done!

3. Devoid of theoretical perspective

Consider first your original, super-cool argument, then choose the most effective tone. Logic? Ethics? Passion?

4. Written in the first person

Just don't--personal narratives are long over.

5. Unsupported by textual evidence

Without direct quotes, your argument asks the reader to just trust you and your interpretation of a scene or the scholarship. Paraphrasing should always be minimal. These quotations are called textual evidence: they are the support beams of your argument. That being said: always, always contextualize your quotes before moving on. They cannot do the work for you! :)

6. Outside of MLA standards

All quotes need to be situated in a larger sentence--even block quotes! Quotations that stand alone (SAQs) are MLA faux pas and injure the flow of your work. Block quotes must be introduced and do not have quotation marks around them, such as:

Dr. Privett-Duren tried to send out help on a Sunday. As she typed,
she hoped that the students would read it--but knew that, as weekends
usually went, there was very little hope in that area. (Privett-Duren)

See? It was simply too long to include on the text line, but is still part of a larger sentence. Psst: I am now contextualizing this quote. :)

I'm including a hyperlink HERE to an amazing source on this subject from Harvard University. As we craft along, remember that writing is a process and that revisions are what makes the result worthwhile. You can do this! (And if you feel as though you can't, call me.)

Corporate Social Responsibility Outline
Topic: Should Companies manage or embrace Corporate Social Responsibility?
Thesis statement: The purpose of this essay is to argue that a business has a responsibility to
create wealth for its owners in ways that profit and protect the community.
Introduction
The sole purpose of a business is to make profits, and most companies today exist to make a
profit and maximize wealth for its investors. However, there has been a rising claim and
argument that businesses should exist for both the benefit of the owners and also the other
stakeholders. The stakeholders of a company are owners, the employees, external partners,
customers and the community. Two opposing arguments have risen in recent years, one
proposing that the business has a moral responsibility which is CSR towards the community and
not to shareholders alone. On the other hand, opponents have come up with their claims
opposing the mandate of the business towards the community
Body
✓ Arguments for CSR in a business
✓ Argument against CSR in Business
Conclusion
Managing CSR is critical for the survival and welfare of every business. All businesses are
expected to manage their CSR besides making wealth for their owners. When a business adopts
CSR, it does a moral, rational, economical, and ethical obligation towards the community.
Additionally, when businesses fail to manage their CSR, they give the government and the

community the power to make policies that might hurt the business in the future. All opposing
views of CSR can be disputed because CSR runs hand in hand with the objectives of the
business, and it does not burden the business as many people have thought.
