Question Description

Need help with my Psychology question - I’m studying for my class.

ENGL 1101, Spring 2020

Essay 3: Researched Argument

The goal of this essay is to develop and put into practice the necessary skills to craft an argumentative essay, in order to make a point and hopefully convince your audience that you are correct. In order to accomplish this, you’ll be proposing some improvement on a small, local scale that you think would make life better. This could be something in your hometown, something in your neighborhood, something at ATC, etc. Examples for topics that I have seen in the past include, ways to improve MARTA, ways to help the homeless population, ways to reduce student loan debt, etc. For this paper, you should have at least 4 sources that help back up your arguments. Through your research, you should explain the problem, identify a solution that you think could be realistically put into practice, and convince your audience that this is a solution they should support. This may mean explaining why it is better than other possible solutions or things that have been tried in the past.

The Assignment: The culmination of this project will be a thoughtful, researched, 3-6 page paper, including proper attribution of all information from your sources and a Works Cited page. Your goal should be to research a way to improve some aspect of life on a local scale and present that in a convincing way. Because this assignment is so open-ended (which can be a bit daunting), it’s important that you choose an issue that is legitimately interesting or important to you, but that also is researchable and arguable.

Ways to Reduce Local Drug Addictions
Addiction to drugs is one of the most significant problems among the youth in our local
communities. A high number of teenagers are dependent on drugs which have substantial effects
on their health and general lifestyle. Most people addicted to drugs tend to have a problematic
relationship with their families and live as if they are in a different world. People who consume
drugs use a lot of money in acquiring the drugs, which makes them use illegal means to get
money (Bozinoff and Nikki 35). In our neighborhoods, there is a high number of people addicted
to drugs. The drugs are mostly obtained in the streets, with peddlers taking advantage of the high
rate of addiction to make money from school going students. Some of the drugs include heroin,
crack, marijuana, meth, and cocaine. The paper discusses the different ways that can be
implemented to reduce drug addiction within our communities. The central thesis of this essay is
that a holistic and person-focused approach to drug problems is necessary to resolve these issues
