Essay #4: The Classical Argument

Euthanasia 

Paper #4 is the standard argumentative research paper. You will construct a lengthy (5-6 full pages) argument in which you take an argumentative stance on the same controversial issue you did your bibliography and exploratory essay on, and then seek to develop that argument with a number of premises. You will also want to acknowledge the other side’s argument and refute it accordingly. See the brief description below (and the chapter from Allyn-Bacon) to showcase what the components of a classical argument are.

This paper is similar to the first paper, the analysis. You need an attention-grabbing introduction, an engaging conclusion, and a solid thesis driven argument. Unlike the first paper, where your evidence was your personal criteria regarding a film, you need to back up your claims with evidence from scholarly sources this time.

You should incorporate a minimum 4-5 peer-reviewed, scholarly sources (not something Googled) to display that you are responding to part of a larger scholarly conversation. You should incorporate sources to help you on your side, and to engage in a conversation with sources against you.

The deadline will be Tuesday, August 1, by 12:00 PM. No late papers will be accepted, unless with special permission from the instructor. The instructions for our weekly activities leading up to the paper are on the learning module.

Classical Argument Components:

  • Attention grabbing intro w/ thesis: circa 1 page
  • Neutral summary of both sides: ½ page, a short paragraph with common arguments for and against. This is meant to be a bit general and unspecific: it’s a warm-up for the reader. This is a good time to cite the research you’ve done to show you’re an expert on the topic!
  • Your argument (premises): what are you using to support your thesis? Circa 3 pages. Remember that you are on the offensive rather than the defensive here. Each section should follow the “Build the Burger” format from our book: you should begin with a topic sentence, show evidence from your sources, and then drive home the point in your own words.
  • Acknowledge & refute the counter-side: acknowledge the other side’s argument, and then politely punch the other side in the kidney (1-2 pages)
  • Conclusion (1/2 page): more than a recap of the argument again!!!!!!

Requirements: 4-6 pages
