Choose a topic that needs to be researched in depth to explore and explain the issues within.
The topic of your paper must be an issue that is the
subject of debate.
Suggested topics include:
Global Warming
U.S. Immigration
Gun Control
Development of products that use less energy and create less waste
Role of Media in our lives
Middle Eastern Conflict
Issues (Tuition, government funding, etc.)
Please develop a thesis regarding any
of these issues (or an issue that you have chosen). Your
paper should be about demonstrating your thesis in an organized and persuasive manner, using
outside sources and your
own reasoning.
For example, if your topic is global warming, examples of theses might be:

Global warming is a serious threat to our environment and governments must take
immediate and severe measures to decrease its rate

Global warming has
not been proven to have been caused by anthropogenic activities
and so government should not risk hurting their economies to solve a problem that we do
not know ex
In other words, it does not matter which side of a debate you take. You may take any si
de you
like. But whichever side you take, your paper should be focused on persuading the reader that
you are correct.
While including some background information is important and necessary, is not necessary to
educate the reader from scratch. You may ass
ume that your reader has a basic understanding of
the underlying issue and may plan and base your persuasive writing on this assumption.
This is a research paper. You must cite at least three outside sources
and should not
make any assertion of fact in your essay unless it is supported by at least one outside reliable
source. Citations should be made in correct MLA format.
