The rough draft & final draft of your essay will be graded according to the College Essay Rubric. Classical Argument Format This is an argumentative research essay, meaning you will take a position on a debatable topic and support your position using various argumentative strategies discussed throughout the semester. You will formulate your own argument and then use outside sources to bolster your position. Below is the structure of a classical argument: Introductory Information This will be a standard introductory paragraph(s) that introduces the topic and the position that you plan to take on the topic. It should grab the reader's attention and set the tone for the entire paper. You can use several introductory strategies. You must have a hook, grab the reader’s attention, and clarify the topic you will be discussing. This may be longer than just one paragraph. Thesis Statement This is your position statement, the argument you are making in the essay. You can present your thesis statement wherever you feel it works best—at the end of the introductory information, after the background information, before or after your counter-argument. It is your choice. Background Information/Context You should provide your readers with relevant background information necessary for understanding the position being argued. You may include background information at the beginning of the paper and anywhere else that you need to provide context for a point you are making. Reasons and Evidence This is where you provide support for your thesis statement, the meat of your essay. You will present reasons to support your thesis and then provide evidence to support these reasons. Devote one or two paragraphs for each reason and be sure to provide critical evidence to substantiate the reasons you are providing. You should find your evidence through your research efforts. Counter-Argument & Refutation When presenting an argument, you must discuss the opposing position's reasons and evidence and offer a refutation. This refutation assures that you are aware of the opposition’s point of view. This refutation will be in its own paragraph, which can immediately precede the conclusion paragraph or it can immediately follow the introductory paragraph. If you present your counter argument following the introductory paragraph, your thesis can fall at the end of this paragraph. Conclusion Paragraph This paragraph logically concludes the entire essay. It is your last hurrah, your last chance to wow the audience. Moore1 Argumentive Outline Audience and purpose 1. My goal is to create awareness on the benefits of homeschooling 2. My intended audience is the parents and policy makers. 3. Values that will appeal to my audience include; freedom, love, independence, morals and values, creativity and imagination, quality play time, self identity, and a cultivation of faith 4. Values that opponents of homeschooling have include; lack of proper people skills from not socializing enough. Formal Outline Thesis Statement: Families seek to equip their young with knowledge that offers flexibility, efficiency, academic benefits and later opportunities that homeschooling offers. Supporting Claim #1: Homeschooling offers academic flexibility in that it benefits a child who may be strong-willed, behind on classes, ahead, challenged, creative, gifted, active or even quiet children.. Supporting Claim #2: Parents are able to choose the approach and pace they want to impose on their child and that they feel is better suited for them. Therefore, a parent or specific tutor employed solely for the child’s needs is able to alter schedules, learning approaches, conform to curriculum or digress, and assess the best applicable grade level choice of pace and approach. Moore 2 Supporting Claim #3: homeschooling offers children a familiar, friendly family environment, whereby family offers the child the relative foundation necessary for social development, whilst encouraging the development of faith and values. Supporting Claim #4: homeschooling allows the child to be more involved in the community as it offers the child more time that can be used for entrepreneurship, community involvement, and volunteering activities. Supporting Claim #5: Homeschooling also accords the child efficient learning owing to the fact that there is a low teacher-student ratio. As a result, it is easier for teachers to concentrate on specific needs of the child; mental, behavioral, emotional as well as their physical health altogether. Claim #6: The time that is often limited in schools is delved into play, projects, outdoors, the arts and experimentation. Claim #7: It is easier for homeschooled kids to get into college owing to the fact that they are over achievers. Counter Argument (Opposition’s Claim): the main argument against homeschooling, is based on the notion that the child will be unable to socialize in the long-run, having spent so much time by him/herself Refutation: Socialization is not a skill that is taught at school, rather, a child needs to be around civil people in a bid so they can learn how to coexist and communicate with other effectively. Thus, a child’s emotional intelligence and empathy are cultivated. Moore 3 Moore 1 Cierra Moore Mr.Munro English 102-W05 Oct 10,2017 Annotated Bibliography Elle, Paul. "The homeschool diaries: In New York City, teaching your own kids can make the most practical sense." The Atlantic 310.3 (2012): 94+. Homeschooling is an educational system that happened by chance and due to the economic challenges of covering the necessary cost of living. As an individual that participated and believed in the public school system, the acceptance of the model for the intellectual development of the children was difficult. However, Elle Paul showed the audience that the option was better than the current public education in New York where public schools are overcrowded with students and understaffed with competent teachers. In spite of the author at the beginning, her experience and interaction with other homeschoolers in the areas showed that the schooling model is the best option for parents that cannot afford private schools but desire to give their children quality education. The author’s effective use of ethos to illustrate his capacity and experience to become a homeschool teacher represented the requirements for implementing the idea as an alternative to the traditional system. Also, the logos were used to convince the audience by presenting the options that were available to the family and the factors that influenced their decision to choose to homeschool their children. Overall, the contents of this article would be useful to the proposed Moore 1 essay because of its presentation of the argument surrounding the socioeconomic factors for homeschooling and how the model can be integrated into the formal educational system. Guterman, Oz, and Ari Neuman. "The Role of Family and Parental Characteristics in the Scope of Social Encounters of Children in Homeschooling." Journal of Child and Family Studies 26.10 (2017): 2782-2789. In this article, the authors provided the findings of their investigation into the level of social encounters that homeschool students experience as a means to show the positive and negative implications of the practice. The authors relied on evidence from the literature to shape their research question on the relationship between family and parental characteristics and the access to these social encounters for the children. According to their findings, which were meant to expand the current body of knowledge on the educational concept, the framework for the social encounters of the children is dependent on the personality of the parents and other members of the family. The content of this article would be useful as evidence for supporting the arguments regarding the negative implications of homeschooling on the social development of the children. Also, the recommendations by the authors regarding the models for future research would complement the information from the other sources that would be included in the research paper. Finally, the use of information from different sources would enhance the quality of the research paper thereby increasing making possible to provide an unbiased perspective to its target audience, especially prospective homeschool parents that are interested in understanding its pros and cons on the social development of their children. Moore 1 Guterman, Oz, and Ari Neuman. "Different reasons for one significant choice: Factors influencing homeschooling choice in Israel." International Review of Education 63.3 (2017): 303-318. In this article, the authors argued that pedagogical reasons and family issues are the main factors that are used by parents for selecting homeschooling for the education of their children. Also, the position of these authors was corroborated by the findings from their investigation into the concept through an interview with families that use homeschooling. However, the important aspect of this study that showed its potential to expand the discussions on homeschooling is the examination of these factors from dimensions that were lacking in the literature. The authors claimed that this approach was necessary to understand their depth on the outcome of the practices. The analysis of the methodologies and findings from this article showed that it would complement the results from other sources and provide information on aspects that were lacking in others. Specifically, the contents on the role of the personalities of the parents and their educational background would support the position of the proposed research paper on the requirement for implementing homeschool for children. Therefore, the emphasis of elements of the concept that was unavailable in other articles but present in this one would contribute to strengthening the quality of arguments that would be presented in the paper. Jolly, Jennifer L., and Michael S. Matthews. "Why we blog: Homeschooling mothers of gifted children." Roeper Review 39.2 (2017): 112-120. Homeschooling has become another medium for the parents of gifted children to express themselves by sharing their experience of teaching their children within the confines of their Moore 1 home. In this study on four mothers, the author discovered that blogging is becoming highly popular among this category of middle-class women that are interested in maintaining a community with people who share similar experiences with them. Therefore, the application of the principles of the gratification theory to examine the motivational factors for these homeschool parents provided insights into the dynamics surrounding the concept, as well as the various approaches that the participants were using to achieve their goals of knowledge exchange and social interactions. An analytical review of this qualitative study revealed that the examination of the elements of the uses and gratification theory by the authors was aimed at convincing the audience that homeschooling can provide the experiences for participants that are worth sharing with other people from different parts of the world. Also, the effective use of different rhetorical strategies such as pathos, ethos, and logos helped achieved the explicit goal of persuading the audience. Therefore, the inclusion of this article would provide information on the theoretical framework for supporting the positive impacts of homeschooling on parents. Moore 1 Works Cited Elle, Paul.
