MODULE ONE

 

Research Topic:  assisted suicide, euthanasia, right to die

Research Assignment:  Find at least five good, reliable sources that address the research topic.

Try to find a wide variety of sources that cover all aspects of the issue, including statistical information.

ONLINE RESOURCES YOU WILL USE TO COMPLETE THIS EXERCISE:

Gale Opposing Viewpoints In Context – accessed from Pierce College Library web site

Ebrary – accessed from Pierce College Library web site

EbscoHost Academic Search Complete – accessed from Pierce College web site

MLA Style citation guides (located on both McChord and Pierce web sites)

MODULE TWO

IDENTIFY THREE TOPICS FOR ANALYSIS: cosmetic

surgery,  Binge Drinking , Foster care versus orphanages

 

1.  Use library sources you have just reviewed in the previous

assignment to review one article each on three different topics. 

(3 articles total).

2.  You may use library sources on the resource page as well.

 3.  Write a brief (100-200) word summary for each article; submit

to Assignment in Module two.

4.  Be sure to include a works cited entry for each resource. 

 

Write a brief (100-200) word summary for each article; submit

to Assignment in Module two.

 

Remember that you need to put everything in your own words

and sentence structure. If you use even one or two distinctive

words of the original, you must place quotation marks around

them. Plagiarism is unacceptable at any time, and this is

especially true while summarizing. The proper use of quotation

marks, and proper acknowledgement of other people's words and

ideas, is often difficult for the freshman student to keep in mind,

but its importance cannot be overemphasized.

Argumentative essay

Write an argumentative essay making a claim about one of the topics you have researched in the last three assignments. Your paper needs to be at least 500 words and use resources to support your position. Remember to include your parenthetical citations and create a works cited page for your resources.

STRUCTURING THE ESSAY:

A. Intro: Begin by intriguing the reader with a concrete problem. End with your solution that is the thesis statement.

 B. Supporting evidence: One or two paragraphs for each main argument. Fill paragraphs with examples, facts, values and logic that support the idea. Support should start strong and end strong. The less strong arguments go in the middle of the paper. Flimsy arguments in wastebasket

C. Refutation: After raising your main supporting ideas, take time to consider one major objection someone might have against your views or proposal. If you don’t consider objections, your arguments will be shallow and superficial. See the objections as valid points, not troublemakers. Don’t label, don’t ridicule. Now, pinpoint the fallacies, correct the “facts” the objection may have mistaken, or question the values of the objection.

A second way to concede some truth is to offer a compromise. With heavy moral issues, compromise might be best, rather than trying to argue one position as better than another. The refutation section is probably the most important in the essay because it establishes your integrity as a writer, it forces you to consider your thesis more deeply, and it gives you a chance to make your argument even stronger.

 D. Conclusion: The conclusion can be a simple reaffirmation of your thesis, but usually it is better to look forward. Consider ending with a dramatic statistic or example, or paint a picture of how a less-effective plan would affect people’s lives.

 Quick check:

 I. Intro TO INCLUDE THE THESIS STATEMENT AS THE LAST SENTENCE.

 II. Support-lots of facts, examples, and evidence

III. Refutation-acknowledge other viewpoints

 IV. Conclusion—where are we going next?
