THIS IS THE ASSIGNMENT DESCRIPTION
Objectives – by the end of this unit, your Persuasive Researched essay will be able to:
Explore multiple perspectives of a controversial issue;
Fairly Summarize a resistant audience’s perspective on a controversial issue;
Provide common ground between the writer’s views and the audience’s;
Develop persuasive claims with reasons, warrants, and backing;
Identify, evaluate, integrate, document, and consistently cite credible research sources.
The purpose of the persuasive research essay is to focus on a controversial issue and then write a multisided argument that attempts to persuade a resistant, or at least highly skeptical, audience to consider accepting your claim about that issue. In multisided arguments, consensus is often reached by writers focusing on being partners in dialogue with their opposition, seeking common ground that lessens the risk (or threat) of disagreement.
Audience – Make sure that you identify an audience that is resistant to, or at the very least skeptical of, the claim you are making about a controversial issue.
Significance and Focus – Controversial topics are ones that present complex issues that hold more than a “yes” or “no”, or “right” or “wrong,” responses, and ones whose outcomes matter deeply to your audience (and to you). You will need to narrow your issue, though, to a manageable angle for a short 4-6 page research paper. For example, huge topics, such as “Technology,” are much too broad for the scope of this essay. However, finding a manageable angle to explore, like “driverless cars and highway safety,” might work.
Rebuttal Strategies – Because your audience is resistant, you will need to work harder to demonstrate that you understand their position, and to anticipate what their objections might be to your claim, reasons, warrants, and source use.
Research and Documentation – Your outside sources will be important for building your own ethos and for helping to control the development of your argument. So, just as you have been doing in the previous essays, carefully evaluate the credibility of your sources and integrate them into your essay. You should be prepared to undergo an extensive research process, using no less than 5 scholarly sources, since you’ll be working to understand your issue from many perspectives.
Organization – You are asked to consider a delayed thesis strategy for this essay. Even so, you will need to abide by expected college writing conventions in your essay structure regarding topic sentences, transition sentences, and focus of paragraphs, all of which specifically proving the thesis.
