Can Someone Help ?

Dear All,

Please see below for Weeks 6-7 assignments. Read them carefully and follow the directions for each. Assignments are due no later than Monday, October 12, 2020 @ 11:59 pm (unless otherwise noted). Let me know if you have any questions or run into any problems.

Stay safe and well,

ASSIGNMENT 1 Please read the entire document carefully. That’s it. Just read the position paper guidelines/requirements closely and carefully. There is nothing to turn in for this assignment. Again, you are just reading the assignment guidelines/requirements.

 

THE POSITION PAPER

 

Please read this entire document carefully.

 

Your next paper for this course will involve writing a position paper, complete with documentation and all of the other bells and whistles. Ideally, the position paper is a place for discovery, as well as a place to reason through your own personal convictions on some relevant topic. Position papers are persuasive in design, with argumentation serving as the primary framework. Writing a position paper requires insight that is driven by informed, logical, and well-reasoned arguments.

That said, you have already begun the initial research for this paper. You have identified three topics, crafted thesis statements for each, and created a short annotated bibliography for those topics. Now, you must choose one of those topics and begin outlining your paper (see sample outline template included).

 

NOTE *An outline is essential and will serve as a test grade. The outline should also be completed and submitted first (see due dates below).

*Your final paper will include the formal outline, the position paper, a works cited page/annotated bibliography, and any appendix (if applicable).

 

Please see due dates below.

 

CHECKLIST

 

Make sure you keep in mind some of the problems that occur in argumentation. Some of those traps include: argumentum ad hominem (the attempt to discredit a view by discrediting the person holding the view, rather than the view itself); appeals to emotion (arguments that try to establish conclusions solely by attempting to arouse or play on the emotions of a listener or reader, rather than deal with the issue being argued); red herring (a general term for those arguments that address a point other than the one that is at issue); begging the question/circular reasoning (more or less assuming the very thing that the argument is intended to prove—for example– Politicians cannot be trusted. Only an untrustworthy person would run for office; the fact that politicians are untrustworthy is proof of this. Therefore, politicians cannot be trusted.” Such an argument is fallacious because it relies upon its own proposition [in this case, “politicians are untrustworthy”] in order to support its central premise. Essentially, the argument assumes that its central point is already proven, and uses this in support of itself.). You will also need to pay special attention to grammar/usage/mechanics.

 

GUIDELINES

 

1. Compose an essay of 1,500-3,000 words whereby you take a position on some relevant topic. Remember, you have already identified three potential topics. Select one of those topics. You must follow all MLA OR APA guidelines (i.e., parenthetical citations, works cited page, etc.). Note: You may select the manuscript format of APA or MLA depending on your field of study. If you are undecided on your major/field of study, choose either format. MLA will give you fewer headaches. It is a user-friendly manuscript format.

2. Sources Needed:

a. 3 scholarly resources (e.g., scholarly journals/research studies, news periodicals) *Use Galileo or Google Scholar for your research to ensure credibility of your sources.

3. Create a formal outline of your paper/position. Your outlines will count as a test grade and must include your sources with specific evidence (author, page #s, publication), along with a works cited page/annotated bibliography.

4. Submit ALL notes, drafts, feedback, etc. (Place this in your appendix).
