Task:

  • • Argue a position about an issue that’s covered in Generation Me.
  • • Besides the book, you will need to do outside research, including at least 5 scholarly sources (1 book counts as 2 sources).
  • • If you use Generation Me in your paper, it counts the same as any other book.
  • • Any other sources used (including online ones) are up to you, but the 5 scholarly sources are required. Only use online sources that can be accessed through the school library web site.
  • • All sources must be cited in MLA style.

 
Writing Skills Used

  • • An argument is based on a writer’s opinion about a topic and the strategies they use to convince an audience to agree with that opinion.
  • • When trying to argue, you’re also trying to persuade, which includes:
    • o establishing your credibility as a writer through the sources used (ethos)
    • o establishing a logical argument (logos) by avoiding logical fallacies
    • o effectively connecting to an audience’s emotions (pathos)

 
Research Skills Used

  • • Doing research for this paper will require critical reading of sources. Understand the main point of each source, mainly so you don’t misinterpret any source’s arguments.
  • • In general, the strength of your evidence will be based on the strength of your sources. Don’t take shortcuts when doing research; but every source you need for this paper can be found through the library.
  • • You don’t need to let the sources dominate your paper, nor do you need to understand each source from beginning to end. Many scholarly sources don’t require a researcher to read the entire article.

 
Structure and Purpose:

  • • Introduction/body/conclusion structure
  • • A more specific topic would lead to more depth in your paper.
  • • Writing Arguments has several structures that we’ll study further in class; one of them should be used for this paper.
  • • The structure you use should be clearly marked through the introduction and transitions in your paper.

 
Persona and Tone:

  1. • Persuade and inform your audience while getting them to think.
  2. • Using “I,” “we,” and “you” are acceptable in this paper within reason.
  3. • Being persuasive is the main goal, but that should still be done ethically.
