Question Description

I’m studying and need help with a Film question to help me learn.

For your next assignment, you will write a stance essay. A stance essay takes a position on a topic and argues and supports that position with evidence. Consider your topic: · What possible positions/arguments are there? · What position resonates with you? (Which position do you believe is correct?) · What are your main points? · What are the counterpoints? Are you ready to dispute them? · Do you have enough evidence to effectively support your argument?


For the stance essay, your personal voice (your perspective) should come through. This is just like assignment 1, except you should maintain a formal tone.For this essay, you will need to support your points with credible sources. You’re ready to take a position on the topic you have been writing about! Important note: Stance Essays DO incorporate research exclusively from the WebText. DO NOT use outside sources. If you have written a Stance Essay in a previous course, please reach out to your professor to see if you can re-use it. You are not permitted to use ANY paper from an unrelated current or past course.


INSTRUCTIONS: You are required to use your WebText to draft your essay in the templates! Compose a three-four (3-4) page paper in which you do the following:

1. Use third person point of view (POV) and the appropriate voice and tone throughout your paper. a. Did you use third person pronouns? (he, she, they, their) b. Does your personality carry over in your writing? Are your word choices personal and consistent? c. Is the tone formal? Does it express your attitude about the topic?

2. Write an introduction paragraph, which includes your thesis statement. It is suggested that this paragraph contain 5-7 sentences.

a. Does your introduction include solutions or approaches on the topic? b. Does your thesis statement include three supporting reasons that clearly express your stance on thetopic?\ c. Is your thesis statement clear and concise? d. Does your introduction provide a preview of the rest of your essay?

3. Write a supporting/body paragraph for each of the three (3) points/reasons from your thesis statement. It is suggested that each paragraph contain at least 5-7 sentences. a. Do your body paragraphs support each point of your thesis with relevant examples orstatistics? b. Do you address the opinions or concerns that your audience might have? c. Did you paraphrase, quote, or summarize properly to avoid plagiarism? Did you comment on each quotation? Do you limit quotes to no more than 25 words.

4. Write with logic and with transitions throughout your paper? a. Are your ideas consistent and well-organized, i.e., chronological order or order of importance? b. Do your ideas flow from one sentence to the next and one paragraph to the next, in the order presented in your thesis statement?

5. Write a conclusion paragraph. It is suggested that this paragraph contain 5-7 sentences. a. Did you paraphrase or restate the thesis in a new way? b. Did you leave a lasting impression, so that your readers continue thinking about your topic after they have finished reading? 6. Apply proper grammar, mechanics, punctuation and SWS formatting throughout your paper. a. Did you check your grammar? i. The way words are put together to make units of meaning: Sentence structure, pronoun-agreement,etc. b. Did you check your essay for mechanics? i. All the “technical” stuff in writing: Spelling, capitalization, use of numbers and other symbols, etc. c. Did you check the punctuation? i. The “symbols” used to help people read/process sentences the way you want them to be heardand understood: Periods, question marks, commas, colons, etc. d. Did you format according to SWS style?
