This semester you have worked towards the understanding of a particular controversy through your researched, comparative analysis of two policy positions. It is now time for you to take your stand. Write an argument that persuades the audience that your position is the right one and that your position is valid.
While it is generally recommended that you work with the same source material as the compare/contrast essay, you may switch to a new topic at this time if you feel it is necessary. You will want to verify that this is an acceptable topic with your professor before committing to this switch.
Make sure that your essay follows the correct rhetorical pattern. You should have a strongly formulated thesis and be sure to accommodate or counter at least one oppositional claim. Please utilize appropriate research to address your claim fully.
– The essay should be argumentative
