Essay #2: Brief Argument
Basic task: To compose a persuasive argument about a local issue.
Purpose: To develop argumentation, critical thinking, writing, and persuasive skills and create a polished academic argument.
Compose an argument essay in which you address a local issue and use techniques of argumentation that you have learned throughout the course thus far. You might:
Identify a specific local controversy and take a stance
Identify a local problem or issue and develop an argument showing how that problem or issue could be addressed
“Local” means issues specific to Tucson and/or Arizona. Examples: Downtown development/revitalization in Tucson, the proposed Rosemont Mine, traffic issues, the Tucson economy, water use, etc. You are welcome to focus on more specific issues related to communities of which you are a part. For example: Controversies at Pima Community College, policies related to University of Arizona, tuition rates, issues affecting your neighborhood (crime, bike laws, streetlights…). Examples of topics that are not “local” include teen pregnancy, abortion, the death penalty, and marijuana legalization. Stay away from these non-local issues.
Begin with a focused introductory paragraph
Support your argument with a series of focused body paragraphs
Reference at least one outside source to support your points (use MLA when referencing the source)
Identify and respond to counterarguments
Conclude with a focused paragraph in which you sum up your main points and emphasize the significance of your argument
Maintain crisp, clear prose
Ensure that your finished essay is free of errors
Format the essay MLA style
To be as persuasive as possible, you should recognize your rhetorical situation, maintain an effective balance of ethos, pathos, and logos, and convey your points through professional academic writing.
