Question description

Position Papers

Reflect more generally on position papers, a genre of writing that plays an important role in our society. Answer the following questions: As a reader and writer of position papers, how important are reasons and supporting evidence? When people argue their positions on television, on radio talk shows, and in online discussion forums like blogs, do they tend to emphasize reasons and support? If not, what do they emphasize? How do you think their purpose differs from the purpose of the writers you read in this chapter and from your own purpose in writing a position paper? What contribution might position papers make to our society that other genres of writing cannot make?

Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any reference
