Argument/research essay | Article writing homework help

Argument Assignment (Outline required)

Write an essay in which you make an argument/claim* about something that is debatable. Take a stand on an issue that is important to you and use evidence, research, and argument to convince an audience to accept a position or take an action. Support your claim with specific claims, facts, observations, expert opinion, anecdotes, interviews, etc and utilize the rhetorical appeals/modes of persuasion we have studied so extensively this semester: pathos, ethos, and logos. Your call to action might even consider the appeal to kairos, or the opportune time or place to say or do the right thing. Most certainly, you should consider the counterargument, but you should quickly expose the faulty logic and return focus to your claim. Be sure to establish why this problem is important and needs to be solved. Include research to support your claims from at least 3 reputable source. [*Personal preference or taste is not an argument, as no one can argue that you love diet coke more than diet pepsi, etc.]
