Argument Essay

Using the topic you have chosen (remember to choose a fresh topic-not something like abortion that has been written about so often that there is no new information out there), pick a position on that topic and write a two and a half to three and a half page paper attempting to convince your audience to agree with your topic using the strategies we have discussed (common ground, refutation, avoiding fallacies, etc.).
This essay should follow the guidelines that previous papers have used: have the proper heading, include a title, be double spaced, use 12 point Times New Roman font, and include the basic components that all essays have (an introduction with a thesis, body paragraphs, and a conclusion). Remember also that all late papers receive a letter grade off every day that they are late.

As you are working on this paper, keep the following things in mind:
At minimum, your thesis should tell readers the topic you are arguing and where you stand on that topic (whether you are for or against that issue).
You will be required to do research for this paper. At minimum, you will need two sources, only one of which can be from the Internet. The librarys databases are not considered Internet sources.
Your sources will be cited in the paper using MLA format, and you will be required to have a Works Cited page at the end of the paper. Remember if the Works Cited page is not in the correct format, especially since I will be correcting the tentative Works Cited page for you, points will be deducted.

Some how my order does not have the correct information. I need 3 sources and the works cited to be in MLA as you can see in the instructions. I apologize for this error. Thanks!
