I need help with an argumentative essay for my 1302 class The rough draft is due April,20,2020 11:59 (you can send it to me on here and I will review it and submit it) The essay instructions will be included below.
You will select and refine a topic for Essay 2 from They Say/I Say Blog
Your ability to choose, evaluate, incorporate, and cite sources will constitute a significant portion of your
grade for the argumentative research essay. Revisit Purdue OWL’s “Research Overview”
(https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/552/1/) before you begin. Or, for citation examples, refer to
Dixie State University Library’s Citation Guide.
Additionally, after you select a topic for your essay, review these characteristics of inventive research:
• Read beyond the most accessible source.
o For example, don’t stop with the first source listed in a database.
• Explore sources that are opposed to your position.
o Don’t seek out only those sources in line with your thinking.
• Be open to change.
o Be willing to modify your claim and/or approach as you encounter sources.
• Look beneath the meaning of each key word or phrase.
o See key terms and phrases as opportunities for more exploration.
• Go back in history to find the origin of words, attitudes, and beliefs related to your topic.
o Your initial understanding of a topic may be inaccurate.
• Look for principles and precedents.
o Imagine how your topic resonates with some broader set of rules or earlier cases.
• Imagine analogies.
o Make comparisons while reading and researching to see new layers of your topic.
• Read for underlying values.
o All arguments reflect values and assumptions that lie beneath the surface.
Of course, as your reading materials explain, not all research is exploratory. As you research your
topic, you may need to conduct seeking research to locate specific information to support your claim.
Evaluate your research needs by asking these “seeking” questions.1. What type of information do I need?
2. What discipline or field of study has explored this issue?
3. What type of publication is likely to offer such information?
4. What is the best way to access that information?
-The final draft of this essay should be 750–1200 words, or 3-4 double-spaced pages (plus a
Works Cited Page).
Examples of Additional Resources for Topics:
- Browse for topics in databases that provide ready-made lists and peer-reviewed articles, e.g, "Search Database Descriptions" for "Current Events:"
