Directions: Write an argument essay in which you argue your position on an issue/debate/or current event. Remember, your essay must contain a thesis that makes an argument: What is the issue/debate/or current event, what is your opinion about it and why? To support your thesis, you will use examples and details and four reliable sources: one primary, two scholarly (at least one of which must be from an academic journal), and one reliable source of the writer’s choosing. The primary source may include an article from a newspaper in the database or a reliable website. See Argument essay notes, which explain how to use and find sources and contain all passwords needed to access the research databases from off campus. Your essay must be written for an academic audience. Refrain from using first and second person (examples: I, we, us, our, me, my, you or your), idioms, contractions, slang, conversational tone, etc. You must use proper MLA formatting and citation, including a works cited page. Essays must be typed in a 12pt normal font such as Times New Roman and be double-spaced. Your essay should be about 5 pages or 1,250 words.
