Argument Research Essay
Create your outline. In an argumentative essay, you must take a strong stance. That is, you must pick a side for or against someone or something. You cannot be in the middle (undecided).
This 3-4-page research essay must be written in APA format. Use Times New Roman, 12 pt. font and double-space your work. You must also use level 1 & 2 headings and have a reference page for your in-text citations. You need at least 2 research resources.
Your assignment is to write an argumentative essay about a controversial topic from the third-person perspective.
The topic: Genetic cloning.
(position: in favor of GC)
Ensure that the title of your essay is appropriate to an argument. The topic and thesis statement should share some of the same words or ideas. The thesis must be the last sentence of the introduction. The thesis statement must clearly explain the argument. The rest of the essay will support the thesis.(underline your thesis statement!!!)
Make sure that your evidence is supporting a claim / thesis that you made (and not the other way around). It is necessary to read about a topic first and come to a conclusion later. If you try to get your thesis statement to fit the research, then it may not work out as neatly as you think. As you learn more, you discover more (and the outcome may not be what you originally thought).
Concession / Rebuttal and Counterargument: This is the paragraph directly before the conclusion of the essay. In the concession, you must admit that you understand the point-of-view(s) of those who oppose you. In the counterargument, you will explain why your point-of-view of more reasonable and therefore, correct. Use your logic and research in the counterargument.
