What an Argumentative Essay?    The argumentative essay is a specific type of writing in which the author chooses one side of an argument and supports the claim with evidence.  The evidence is collected through research and used to reinforce the author’s opinion and to develop arguments designed to persuade others to accept or adopt the author’s position.  Instructions Summary: The principal steps for the assignment are… Select an issue or dilemma of interest, inspired by the content of this course. Review the pertinent literature.    Decide on your perception; take a stance. Write and submit for grading a well composed, 3- to 5-page APA style formatted persuasive argument paper that … Presents your perception in the form of a thesis statement. Summarizes the issues; demonstrates an understanding of the controversy. Defends/argues in favor of your perception using all resources available. Finishes with a strong summary statement that reinforces your thesis. Proofread your work; use grammar/spellcheck functions. Revise; submit final draft. Constructing the Paper: Your selected topic can revisit a psychology of gender question, issue or dilemma discussed in class, found within the empirical literature, or be one you have developed. Each approach will afford you the opportunity to synthesize information from the course Within the document… a. Introduce. Concisely introduced the reader to the topic. Hook: Open the first paragraph with a “hook” statement.  This is a brief introduction to a generally related topic that grabs the reader’s attention.  (Usually 1-2 sentences in length.) Anchor the introduction discussion with a clear, concise, and defensible thesis statement. The thesis statement should be a persuasive statement that introduces the reader to the topic, the position you will take, and how you will support that position within the essay. That is, your thesis should be specific, accurate, and arguable (i.e., seen from at least two points of view). The thesis statement is often positioned as the last sentence in the paper’s opening paragraph. The order of points made within the thesis should match the order of the arguments in the paper. b. Present your arguments. Within the body of the paper construct paragraphs that are dedicated to each argument. A useful (but not necessarily required) rhythm for building a paragraph in support of an argument is: Topic sentence: Open with a persuasive statement that clearly explains a reason from your thesis that you intend to defend. *  Example: Provide a concrete example that will show/prove your topic sentence.  This is where evidence pulled from the literature will be valuable. Explain: Do not assume the audience understands how the example connects to the topic sentence. Explain what examples prove within the context of your argument. Closing sentence: provide a statement that demonstrates why the topic discussed in the paragraph is so important. c. Conclusions.  In your conclusion review the points made. Do not just reword or repeat your thesis.  Readdress it within the context of the provided evidence. Incorporate the “so what.”  That is, close with a statement that calls your audience to do, change, or believe something. You can also close with a thoughtful statement on why the information discussed is important on a larger scale. * Construct logical transitions between paragraphs. d. Connect. Throughout the paper support assertions made. Express interrelated ideas coherently and logically. Anticipate your audience’s counter arguments or objections and address them. This is necessary for the essay to be truly persuasive. Responding to counter arguments and pointing out why they are not valid can be as important as presenting your own. e. Include sources. Incorporate information for the pertinent literature. The paper should include references from the text or one outside reading assigned by your instructor or both. The paper may also include material from other sources. f. Use Authorial Voice.   Discuss materials in your own words and your own writing style and structure. Avoid excessive use of direct quotes. Doing so may incur a point penalty for each occurrence or not be accepted as content towards the page count. g. Apply APA Style**.  Neatly and concisely present an APA formatted 3-5 page document containing Title Page (not included in the page count) Introduction Body Conclusions References (not included in the page count) Properly formatted in-text citations and references **Use APA style headings, double-spacing, an appropriate serif or sans serif font (e.g., Times Roman 12-point; Arial 11-point; Calibri 11-point), 1-inch margins (left, right, top, and bottom), page numbering, and logical flow from topic to topic.  Write with clarity, paying attention to spelling, grammar, and syntax. Consult the UMGC Citing and Writing Guide, for proper form of APA Style in-text citations and references.  You can also take advantage of the UMGC Effective Writing Center to gain early feedback and assistance with APA compliance.  UMGC’s Effective Writing Center:…  *Check the Course Schedule in this syllabus for the due date. Your instructor will determine the penalty for late submission of papers. * Look closely at the associated rubric for point allocations. EVALUATION CRITERIA: The following criteria will be considered in the evaluation of the observation paper: Accuracy—Are your stated facts or ideas, correct? Clarity—Is the paper clear and easy to follow? You may want to read your paper out loud to yourself. This will help you catch incomplete sentences or lapses in logic. Depth—Are the issues and implications well thought out and explored? Originality—What is your thesis (the main point of your paper)? Have you stated your own views and articulated them well? Use your own words. Supporting evidence—Are your ideas supported with empirical evidence? This is a crucial part of any well-written research paper. You may support your ideas with theories, previously conducted research, or other information you encounter in the text and other sources (journal articles, books, etc.). References—Did you use appropriate references to support the main points of your paper? Be sure you have these references—that is, that you have the articles on hand if you used them, and make sure that your references relate to the point you are making or support your inferences. Writing mechanics (form, composition, spelling, grammar)—Is your paper neat and error-free? It helps to run spellcheck before submitting your work and to have a colleague or friend read over your work.
