Paper 4: STAKEHOLDER RESEARCH PAPER (SRP) Purpose This assignment will help develop your skills as a researcher, and the essay will challenge you to explain multiple sides to a complex issue. A stakeholder is a person who is directly affected by and cares about an issue. In this essay, you will identify the stakeholders surrounding an issue in which YOU have a personal stake, and describe their perspective on the issue. The stakeholders will be your audience, and your overall purpose will be to explain the different viewpoints of those stakeholders. As you did in the Text Analysis, you will use headings in this essay to organize your ideas, and integrate at least four credible, quality sources into your essay (two of the four must be from a WVU database). The length requirement is 5-6 pages, not including the Works Cited list. ORGANIZATION Intro paragraph: Open your essay in an interesting way to pull in readers. You can apply what you learned about leads from the Profile essay by opening with a fact, question, anecdote, etc. Then, summarize your issue in 3-5 sentences. Define any necessary terms. Next, identify the stakeholders of the issue: who specifically is directly affected by and involved in this issue? Name specific people and groups to show all of the sides of the issue. Finally, present your thesis/argument in a sentence or two using an ‘I’ to tell your stance on the issue (and what stakeholders you side with) and ideally, presenting an overview of your sections. *Divide the body of the essay into the following sections and label with a clear heading: (Note: you do not have to follow this order of sections, and can rearrange.) Supporting Evidence/Reasoning In this section, you should develop at least two supporting reasons for your position on the issue, and integrate source evidence, in the form of quoting/paraphrasing, to support these points. These paragraphs should follow the hamburger structure: your supporting reason should be stated in a topic sentence at the beginning and end of the paragraph, the meat of the paragraph being facts/details/examples (using a combination of paraphrase and quotation) to support its main point. (Note: because the first and last sentence of your body paragraphs should state the topic of that para, do not begin or end a body para with a source quote. Likewise, do not use a quote to tell the topic of a paragraph – try to use your own words to state your supporting points). Opposing View(s) What stakeholders oppose your argument, and why? In a topic sentence, tell the argument/view that opposes yours and identify the stakeholders who believe/argue it. Develop this para by explaining the stakeholders’ reasoning behind their belief in this viewpoint. Do they have any valid points or arguments? Explain why/why not. If you reject their argument, explain why, using source evidence. Finally, remember to restate the topic of the paragraph – the stakeholder and opposing view – as the final sentence of this paragraph, adding your overall assessment of this point (accept or reject) in a phrase. Personal Stake In a paragraph or so, explain your personal connection to the issue. What is your personal stake in this issue? How has this issue affected your life? Try to provide specific stories/examples from your personal experience to develop this discussion. Conclusion Always restate your thesis and main points (in the order that you make them!) in the conclusion. Then, end the paper in a meaningful, strategic way. Good ways to conclude: open with an anecdote, and refer back to this anecdote as the final thought in your conclusion, creating a “frame” for the paper; pose rhetorical questions to your readers to keep them thinking about the issue; call the reader to action and provide a clear suggestion for your audience; and finally, make a (reasonable) prediction about what could possibly happen if your issue is ignored. Examples As part of the prewriting process, we will brainstorm ideas for campus, state/local, national, and global topics for this project. Likewise, we will look at several student examples as models. Some Thoughts.. • • • Utilize and maintain a formal tone throughout the essay. Try not to use the second person ‘you’ to address the readers, instead referring to them in the third person, as the use of ‘you’ makes the tone too conversational and thus informal. You can, however, and are encourage to to utilize the first person ‘I’ in the paper to work on developing your unique voice as a writer. Also, ALWAYS refer to an author first by introducing them by their full name, and then by using their LAST name. NO CLICHED debate topics. No marijuana, no lowering the drinking age, no capital punishment, no abortion, no steroids in sports, no capital punishment, no euthanasia. You MUST have a personal stake in the issue, whether it be a campus, local, or national issue, and must be able to describe your personal connection to the topic in a well-developed paragraph (at least). You MUST get my permission to Consider putting off the writing of your thesis sentence until after you have composed the main sections of the essay. Remember to use ‘I’ in the thesis to make your overall argument about the issue. Remember also that the thesis can be one to two sentences. How can your thesis sentence incorporate the opposing view, supporting points, and your personal stake? Assessment The basic requirements for this essay include: • Focusing on a meaningful issue that you have a demonstrable personal stake in • Writing a thesis sentence that outlines your paper and makes a clear argument using an “I” plus a strong verb • Selecting relevant information via at least four credible sources that helps you understand multiple perspectives • Using the WVU Library databases to locate, select, and integrate at least two timely sources (ie published within the last ten years) • Integrating this source information effectively via a combination of paraphrase and direct quotation with appropriate MLA citations • A well-developed intro that sums up your issue, identifies stakeholders, defines terms, and presents your thesis • Sectioning the body of your essay into three parts using the following headings: Opposing View, Supporting Arguments, and Personal Stake (remember you can retitle these headings) • A well-developed conclusion that restates the essay’s thesis, recaps the main points of each of the three sections, and ends in a meaningful, strategic way • Displaying a strong voice that confidently reflects your unique personality • Utilizing and maintaining a formal tone by referring to source authors via last name • Correctly following MLA rules of citation and essay format – for in text citations, Works Cited list citation, by using the present tense in signal phrases, and by using 12 point, Times New Roman font, double spaced, with one inch margins. • Meeting the required length of 5-6 pages (NOT including your Works Cited list) ...
