ENG 200 Week 1 Topic Selection Worksheet
The first step of the writing process in this course is to select a topic for your Final Argument Paper, which is due in Week 5. Topic selection is a foundation for the rest of the assignments in this course, and each assignment builds upon the previous week's assignment. This week, you select a topic, determine your position and reasons for that position, draft a thesis statement, and identify the main components of an argument. In Week 2, you have the opportunity to further revise your thesis to ensure that it serves as a solid foundation for your argument.

Complete the Topic Selection Worksheet.

Submit your completed worksheet to the Assignment Files tab.

Arguments can be easily misunderstood and misinterpreted. There may be times when we do not fully evaluate arguments before forming our response to them, and our response may have been different if we fully understood what was being argued. Argument evaluation is important in everyday life to help you communicate effectively with others and to form your own arguments.

Select one article from any of the themes on the Article List.

Read the article, and respond to the following:

Provide an APA formatted reference of the article you selected. You may use the Reference and Citation Generator for assistance.<Enter your response here.

ENG 200 Week 2 Argument Paper Outline
To ensure you include the appropriate elements in your argument paper, you must organize all of your research. This assignment will help you to determine what pieces of research you would like to include in your paper, and which claims and statements the selected research will support. The outline you create will be used as the basis for the Week 5 Final Argument Paper assignment. Follow these step-by-step instructions as they are presented, to guide you through the assignment.

Part 1: Research and Evaluation

Conduct a search in the University Library for three peer-reviewed journal articles that relate to your topic and the reasons you hold your position about that topic, which you outlined in your Week 1 Topic Selection Worksheet.

Review the articles you selected, and highlight information that supports your reasons for your position.

If the articles you initially select do not support your position, continue to research until you find content that does.
Evaluate each article you intend to use with the Evaluating Resources Worksheet in the Center for Writing Excellence. Your sources should meet the evaluation criteria listed to ensure they are appropriate for your paper. You will use the information from this evaluation in Part 2 of this assignment, but you will not submit this evaluation document.

Part 2: Thesis Statement and Outline

Create an outline of your argument paper using the Argument Paper Outline Template.

Complete the following areas of the Argument Paper Outline Template. Replace the template text with your information.

Title page
On page 2: Title of Paper
Revised thesis statement
Review the draft of your thesis statement from your Week 1 Topic Selection Worksheet, and make any necessary revisions to form a clear claim for your argument. Use your faculty feedback and the Writing a Thesis Statement Tutorial for tips on revising your thesis statement.
APA-formatted level 1 headings for each of the reasons for your position
Topic sentence
Topic sentences will begin each body paragraph about the particular topic. The topic sentence should focus on one of the reasons for your position.
Main points you want to present about each reason for your position
Each main point should represent an additional detail in the discussion of each reason for your position.
Supporting research for each main point, including the Information source from which the supporting research was retrieved
Reference page with an APA formatted reference for each of the peer-reviewed sources used
Ensure your Reference page lists the sources in alphabetical order. You may use the Reference and Citation Generator, found in the Center for Writing Excellence, to help generate your references.
Below each reference, include a 25- to 50-word justification for why the source is appropriate for use in this paper. Each justification should be based on the evaluation you completed in Part 1 of this assignment.
You do not need to include the introduction and conclusion paragraphs this week, as you will be working on those next week.

Submit your completed Argument Paper Outline Template to the Assignment Files tab.

 
 
ENG 200 Week 3 Argument Paper Rough Draft
Now that you have outlined your paper, it is time to start your rough draft. A rough draft should expand on the ideas you included in your outline, and should include introduction and conclusion paragraphs as well as transitional statements between topics in your body paragraphs. This rough draft will compile all the content for your paper in a cohesive manner, and present your full argument.

It is important to think about how to integrate the research you have gathered into your paper. You have a voice, and your voice matters. The research you have found should be used to provide support to your voice and your argument. Extensive quotations or even paraphrased text are not always appropriate or helpful. You should try to limit these to no more than three to five instances throughout your paper. Use the learning activities, discussions, and resources from the Center for Writing Excellence to assist you with appropriately creating and using in-text citations to acknowledge where you have integrated your research within your rough draft. 

Write your Argument Paper Rough Draft using the APA Paper Template. Your paper should be 700 to 1,050 words.

Create robust body paragraphs to present your full argument by expanding on the topics in your outline.

Ensure each body paragraph has a topic sentence.
Incorporate the research you have gathered to support your argument.
Make your best attempt at formatting in-text citations and a reference page, which you will learn more about in Week 4. You may use the Reference and Citation Generator to help you construct your citations and references.
Create an introduction paragraph that includes your thesis statement and introduces your reader to the main topics included in your paper.

Create a conclusion paragraph to bring your paper to a close.

Ensure your paper includes the following elements prior to submission:

A title page
An introduction paragraph with a thesis statement that clearly states your argument.
APA-formatted level 1 headings for each main topic
A topic sentence to begin each body paragraph under each main topic
No more than three to five instances of paraphrased or directly quoted material integrated throughout the paper, followed by the appropriate APA-formatted citation
A conclusion paragraph
A reference page with a reference listing for a minimum of three peer-reviewed sources
