This will be in essay form.
The length will be determined by the arguments you choose to present, but remember
you are trying to persuade people as to the truth of your position, so you should make
sure that you are clearly explaining and supporting the claims that you are making to
support your position. Also, the better the essay is crafted, the more easily your readers
will be able to follow your train of thought. Rhetoric can come in handy, but it should
not be at the expense of clarity in the support for your argumentation. As a general
guide, you should aim for approximately 4 pages (double-spaced, 12 pt. font).
You must formulate at least 3 arguments that support your position. Clearly identify
them within your essay (e.g. “my first argument,” “firstly,” etc.).
At least 1 argument must specifically reference one of the readings associated with the
topic. You can choose to either explain and further support one of the readings’
arguments or choose an opposing argument to evaluate and criticize.
