Essay 4 is a persuasive essay. Your goal is to present a convincing argument on one of the prescribed topics by using outside sources to support your argument. You MUST use the movie, Crash, as your major source.
Genre/Medium: Persuasive/Argumentative Essay Typed
Unlike an editorial, the persuasive essay is not merely your personal opinion about a topic, but an argument that provides scholarly evidence of research (i.e. various sources, interviews, quotes, and sufficient statistical data) to support your position. Because of the length and complexity of this project, it is essential that you choose a topic that you really care about, one that you truly want to learn more about, and one that you will be interested in writing about.
Your seven-to-nine paragraph essay must contain a concrete closed thesis statement at the end of the first paragraph. In addition to your introduction, three supporting paragraphs and conclusion, your essay will also contain a paragraph of opposition and a paragraph of refutation. You will use MLA documentation to write your paper and we will consult with each other about your topic before the final draft is written.
This essay will target a scholarly audience. Therefore, your language and style should meet the intellectual needs of individuals who read on a collegiate level. As you think about your audience, write to pique the interest of your audience by considering what your readers already know and what they need to know.
For this essay, it is imperative that you take a stance and present ideas that convey your stance throughout your essay. Never contradict your thesis.
Although your final requirement for this project is a completed essay, you will carry out the steps for writing a research paper by participating in four separate graded activities that lead up to your final essay. Before you submit your final essay you will complete the following:
1. The Research Proposal /Thesis Statement Defense (Unit Quiz #4)
2. An Annotated Bibliography (Unit Quiz #5)
3. A Peer Review
4. Final Essay
Before choosing your topic you should consider what you want to write about. Once you have chosen your topic, you should decide where you stand on the issue. Next, you want to develop your position with evidence research that will validate your point. You will need to use at least 3 sources of support for your essay. Finally, you will present your argument in a way that convinces the reader that your perspective is a valid one. Remember, this essay, like the others you have written, should have a specific, detailed, three-point thesis statement.
