FIVE PARTS TO THIS ASSIGNMENT PART 1 Rough Draft AND Peer Review
(SUBMIT BY THURSDAY 07/28)
Background Reminder: Writing Process Stages
Throughout the assignments, we’ve emphasized that a writer has to keep audience in mind when choosing information and arranging it in a paper. This week you get a chance to get feedback from your peers, so you’ll have a better sense of how another reader might view the ideas. Directions for Discussion Question Response
Post your rough draft. The rough draft posted in this discussion forum does not need to be perfect or even complete; however, it should be substantial enough to receive quality feedback on it from a classmate. Therefore, shoot for 1000+ words. Of course, you will have to meet the word limit (1200 words) for the rough draft that will be submitted for PART 3
PART 2 Rough Draft AND Peer Review
SUBMIT BY THURSDAY 07/28)
Choose a draft that does not yet have a peer review from another student and do a peer review on a classmates post (If everyone has at least one peer review, you may choose to do someone’s second peer review.) To do the peer review, answer all of the following questions. Your peer review should have a few sentences or a paragraph for each question. Use complete sentences and specific examples from the rough draft to clarify what you are referring to. Do not address the spelling, punctuation, grammar, or mechanics. Please organize your peer review in list format, using the letters below. a. State what you think the main point (thesis statement) of this essay is.
b. State how convincing or unconvincing the evidence for the thesis is. Be specific here. For instance, you might indicate why some evidence is convincing while other information seems weak, giving the specific reason. c. Indicate where you feel the writer needs to add more information because the point being made is unclear or not very convincing yet.
d. What is the most important thing the writer can do to make this paper better?

THIS ASSIGNMENT CANNOT BE SUBMITTED LATE!
For the Researched Argument Essay, you are going to construct an audience-based argument that presents a claim about your topic and integrates the research you have done this semester to support your claim.
Think carefully about your readers. Consider these five questions:
What do you want readers to do or think?
Why should they do or think that?
How do they know that what you say is true?
What should readers know about counterarguments?
What larger principles or context grounds your argument?
Also, think about the stakeholders involved in your topic. Who is most impacted? Most invested? Who can be the agents of change? Who is in the most powerful position to effect change? Note: stakeholders and agents of change are not always the same group of people. Writing an audience-based argument means thinking about your goals. What do you want the audience to do, think, or feel? What action do you think they need to take (if applicable)? In some cases, your audience may be large entities, such as corporations or governments, so you should set proportionate goals for your audience.
Whatever your goal for your audience, you must choose and evaluate evidence accordingly. What evidence does the audience need? To what would they respond best? What most aligns with their own goals and agendas? Here, a careful consideration of ethos, pathos, and logos is critical. How are you going to appeal to your reader in a way that persuades them to proceed according to your recommendations?
In other words, your thesis, evidence, purpose, and writing style should all correspond to your intended audience. You do not need to identify or address the audience explicitly, but you do need to write as if you were addressing that intended audience.
What should it include?
1) INTRODUCTION: Use an attention-grabbing introduction that gives an overview of the topic and speaks to the specific sentiments or concerns of the audience you have chosen whilst also indicating your position
2) THESIS: Develop a clearly formulated, arguable thesis, including reasoning to support your position. In other words, your thesis should concisely give readers the reasons why your claim should be believed or why they should think/feel/act differently. 3) TOPIC SENTENCES: Each paragraph should begin with a clear and effective topic sentence that foregrounds for the reader what is discussed in the subsequent paragraph.
4) EFFECTIVE PARAGRAPHS: The paper must include ordered, developed, cohesive, and coherent paragraphs that develop the argument by offering evidence and explanation in support of your position. Every sentence should contribute to the argument of its paragraph and the paper as a whole. Make sure, too, that the logical relationship between sentences is always clear and that body paragraphs identify supporting reasons, ideas, or examples for the claim.
5) COUNTERARGUMENTS: The essay must present and then respond to one or more counterarguments to your claim.
6) CONCLUSION: End with a conclusion that emphasizes the importance of taking the action or making the change recommended by the claim.
7) ACADEMIC STYLE: The essay should follow coherent organization between and within paragraphs, maintain appropriate style and tone suited to the purpose and audience of the argument, adhere to proper, ethical, and correct documentation for ALL sources (sources that have been carefully evaluated, of course), and observe correct grammar, spelling, punctuation, and capitalization throughout.

For the Researched Argument Essay, you are going to construct an audience-based argument that presents a specific claim about your topic and integrates the research you have done this semester to support your claim. Your thesis statement should propose a solution or solutions to a particular problem. as well as tell the reader WHY this is the best/most feasible course of action and/or HOW this course of action could/should be implemented. Think carefully about your readers. Consider these five questions:
What do you want readers to do or think?
Why should they do or think that?
How do they know that what you say is true?
What should readers know about counterarguments?
What larger principles or context grounds your argument?
Also, think about the stakeholders involved in your topic. Who is most impacted? Most invested? Who can be the agents of change? Who is in the most powerful position to effect change? Note: stakeholders and agents of change are not always the same group of people. Writing an audience-based argument means thinking about your goals. What do you want the audience to do, think, or feel? What action do you think they need to take (if applicable)? In some cases, your audience may be large entities, such as corporations or governments, so you should set proportionate goals for your audience.
Whatever your goal for your audience, you must choose and evaluate evidence accordingly. What evidence does the audience need? To what would they respond best? What most aligns with their own goals and agendas? Here, a careful consideration of ethos, pathos, and logos is critical. How are you going to appeal to your reader in a way that persuades them to proceed according to your recommendations?
In other words, your thesis, evidence, purpose, and writing style should all correspond to your intended audience. You do not need to identify or address the audience explicitly, but you do need to write as if you were addressing that intended audience.
Remember that your thesis statement needs to propose a solution/change/course of action. It is not enough to merely identify the problem. For example, if your topic is traffic congestion in the downtown portion of your hometown, explaining that it is a problem (and why) is necessary, but this will not suffice for a strong/powerful thesis statement/claim. Instead, a successful argument will propose ways to address the problem, and appeal to an audience or audiences that may be persuaded to support and/or implement these solutions. If you have questions/concerns, please reach out. What should it include?
1) INTRODUCTION: Use an attention-grabbing introduction that gives an overview of the topic and speaks to the specific sentiments or concerns of the audience you have chosen whilst also indicating your position
2) THESIS: Develop a clearly formulated, arguable thesis, including reasoning to support your position. In other words, your thesis should concisely give readers the reasons why your claim should be believed or why they should think/feel/act differently. Remember that your thesis statement should propose your solution/solutions to the problem that you’ve identified. The thesis statement offers a preview of the argument that you will expand upon and explain in the body paragraphs to follow.
3) TOPIC SENTENCES: Each paragraph should begin with a clear and effective topic sentence that foregrounds for the reader what is discussed in the subsequent paragraph.
4) EFFECTIVE PARAGRAPHS: The paper must include ordered, developed, cohesive, and coherent paragraphs that develop the argument by offering evidence and explanation in support of your position. Every sentence should contribute to the argument of its paragraph and the paper as a whole. Make sure, too, that the logical relationship between sentences is always clear and that body paragraphs identify supporting reasons, ideas, or examples for the claim.
5) COUNTERARGUMENTS: The essay must present and then respond to one or more counterarguments to your claim.
6) CONCLUSION: End with a conclusion that emphasizes the importance of taking the action or making the change recommended by the claim.
7) ACADEMIC STYLE: The essay should follow coherent organization between and within paragraphs, maintain appropriate style and tone suited to the purpose and audience of the argument, adhere to proper, ethical, and correct documentation for ALL sources (sources that have been carefully evaluated, of course), and observe correct grammar, spelling, punctuation, and capitalization throughout.
