I’m studying for my English class and need an explanation.
Write an essay that effectively argues your position on the prompt and presents evidence from the texts as support. Evaluate and utilize outside sources, effective quoting and clear analysis. Use and apply rhetorical strategies learned in your own argument.
This essay will require a minimum of four (4) outside sources, which you will need to find. These source need to be reliable, credible and correctly cited in MLA. You need to introduce these sources as you use them in the essay and correctly cite them in a Works Cited page.
Length: 6-7 pages (not including Works Cited)
For this assignment, you will develop an argumentative essay that establishes a clear claim, supports it with researched sources and refutes at least one counter argument.
You will have two options:
- Choose a controversial local (San Diego County) issue and argue in favor of one side.
Previous topics have included issues such as:
What should be done with Children’s Pool in La Jolla?
Should a new Chargers stadium be built? (over now)
How should the pollution in San Diego be controlled?
Should there be a casino in Jamul? (over now)
- When choosing a topic for this option, a good idea would be to turn on your local nightly news or open the newspaper to the local news section.
- or … Choose a California based educational issue.These issues can deal with budgets, student populations, classroom practices or anything else that impacts education in statewide California classrooms.
