Avoid logical fallacies, include plenty of logical analysis and concrete evidence (from credible sources) in your appeal, and carefully consider a primary counterargument to your stance and (respectfully) refute it. Here are some sample controversial statements you might consider arguing for or against: Reality television lacks any artistic value. This paper should include properly cited quotes or paraphrases from at least three credible sources to support your thesis.

Please include your name, a title, the date, and your class hour at the top, as well as page numbers throughout. Nick Pincumbe EN 1101 Argumentation Paper Assignment 6A: Pre-Writing Your first assignment in the creation of your Argumentation Paper (6G) is to do a Pre-Writing exercise (6A).

Nick Pincumbe EN 1101 Argumentation Paper Assignment 6B: Thesis Statement Your second assignment in the creation of your Argumentation Paper (6G) is to create your thesis statement (6B). For this exercise you should use this sheet as your guide and create a printed one page assignment that identifies your TOPIC, your STANCE on that topic, and three SUPPORT POINTS that you will use to back up that stance in your paper.

Nick Pincumbe EN 1101 Argumentation Paper Assignment 6C: Annotated Bibliography Your third assignment in the creation of your Argumentation Paper (6G) is to create an annotated bibliography (6C). An annotated bibliography formalizes your research process. It forces us to spend a bit more time thinking about the sources we’re using, whether we can trust them, and how we are using them in our writing. For this assignment, you should take your thesis statement and outline (Assignment 6B) and research one academic quality source that you can use to support the arguments in your compare/contrast paper. You will need to use library resources to find one reliable source. Your annotated bibliography should include four distinct parts: A full citation of that source in MLA Style as it would appear on your Works Cited page.A short one paragraph summary of the important information contained in that source.A thoughtful one paragraph explanation of why you found this source to be credible.A short one paragraph explanation of how you could use this source to support your thesis. Other than the citation, each part of your annotated bib should consist of complete sentences. Make sure to visually distinguish each part of the assignment. Your research will start as an in-class activity, but you do not have to complete all parts of the assignment in class. Your source must be run by me during class, in the library, in order to verify that it is of academic quality. Be prepared to summarize your source and explain its credibility when you share it with me. Sources can be electronic or print, but should be of academic quality (no .com, no wiki, no dictionaries or encyclopedias). Type the results of this assignment to submit with your other assignments when your final draft is due (Assignment 6G). If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask! Nick Pincumbe EN 1101 Argumentation Paper Assignment 6D: Outline Your fourth assignment in the creation of your Argumentation Paper (6G) is to take your thesis statement (6B) and expand it into an outline (6D). For this exercise you should use this handout as your guide and create a printed two-to-three page assignment that outlines a five paragraph structure for your essay based on an introduction, three support paragraphs, and a conclusion. Per our discussion in class, the three support points from your thesis should be the basis for your three support paragraphs. Since you’ll be including source material for this paper, you can record key quotes or paraphrases (and their in-text citations) as examples where appropriate. Make sure to include your explanation or analysis of the source material you choose to use. Please include your name, date, etc., as you would on any other assignment and bring one hard copy to your Conference (see Course Schedule announcement for dates).
