NOTE: This assignment is due on May 12BEFORE (not after) our Wednesday class begins. We will have an in-class peer review on Wednesday, so it is important that you upload this assignment on time.

Please upload a rough, but complete first draft of your proposal argument (PDF). It does not have to be perfect, but it must be complete, meaning any claims made must be accompanied by some reasons (and hopefully some evidence). You should aim for at least 5 paragraphs, and include at least 2 sources of research.

NOTE: Go to the Downloads section and download the sample student essay (Proposal Argument Sample 3 “Don’t Let Party Poisoning College Students”). Use it as a guide as you write your first draft. Also, please watch the class recording Day 11 (4/28/21).

In that class recording, I explained how you could use my former student’s essay as your guide.

Structure of your Proposal Argument Essay:

1st Paragraph (Introduction: Define the Problem)

To make it easier for everyone, state only ONE problem. You may one want to begin your introduction with a hook (statistic or surprising fact), and define your problem. Do not forget to include your research, in-text citation, paraphrases, and quotation marks for directly copied statements from your sources.

2nd Paragraph (Propose the solution)

To make it easier for everyone, propose only ONE solution. Do not forget to include your research, in-text citation, paraphrases, and quotation marks for directly copied statements from your sources.

3rd Paragraph (Explain Effectiveness)

Explain how effective your proposed solution is. Do not forget to include your research, in-text citation, paraphrases, and quotation marks for directly copied statements from your sources. Of course, you must include your own analysis as well.

4th Paragraph (Address Fairness, Feasibility, and any Opposition or Weaknesses)

You must include a counterargument. An example of a counterargument is in your Course Reader Chapter 10: This politician says that we should freeze military spending because our nation needs to save money. It’s true that budgets must be carefully monitored, but my proposed increase in spending will actually generate more tax revenue because it will create new high-paying jobs. Do not forget to include your research, in-text citation, paraphrases, and quotation marks for directly copied statements from your sources.

5th Paragraph (Conclusion)

Your conclusion is a summary or restatements of what you have presented in your four paragraphs (problem/ solution/ effectiveness/ opposition). Do not forget to include your research, in-text citation, paraphrases, and quotation marks for directly copied statements from your sources.

* Please include your Works Cited list following correct MLA formatting.
