"Entering The Conversation" Argument

Please take a moment to overview the “Entering the Conversation”  Argument assignment and the rubric I will use to grade it.

“Entering the Conversation” Argument (100)

In this assignment, you will enter the conversation you’ve been  reading about for the past four weeks. This argumentative essay should  be  to 1,000- 1,250 words in length.

This formal argument will be your first opportunity to support,  reflect on (and possibly refine) the limited, defensible and debatable  central claim you’ve put forward in your Proposal. This is also your  first opportunity to use the principles and theories we’ve discussed to  craft a rigorous and sound argument that will ultimately be informative,  persuasive, (and/or) thought-provoking for your intended audience.  Because this is a relatively short argument, I expect a very high-level  of quality of thinking and reasoning. What this assignment lacks in  length, it should make up for in sound argumentation.

A solid argument will provide a good foundation on which to build  your final Informed Rhetorical Argument. This will also give me an  opportunity to give you some feedback on your argument before you  compose your final argument.

FORM: This paper will be in MLA format, double-spaced, complete with a title  (“Entering the Conversation Argument” is not an acceptable title; think  of a title that represents your work well. Remember, the title is the  first argument your reader will encounter) and a Works Cited  page. (A works cited page is not, of course, included in the word  count. If you are uncertain about any aspect of MLA format, I strongly  suggest Purdue’s Online Writing Lab (OWL). (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. All sources must be cited rigorously using MLA’s in-text, parenthetical citation system (Again, see the Purdue cite above.)
