ENG 215 Week 5 Persuasive Research
Paper and Presentation

Part 1: Persuasive Research Paper

Write a 1,400- to 1,750-word
persuasive research paper that argues your personal position on a controversial
topic that you think is worthy of public debate. The topic must be current,
part of an ongoing debate, or a relatively new, unknown topic that you think
deserves more attention. 

Include a strong thesis statement and be organized so
that your arguments are clearly presented. Avoid giving background on your
topic. Instead focus on proving your thesis statement.

Incorporate both classical
principles of argumentation and elements of the Toulmin model of argument

Support your claims with credible references, using a
minimum of four peer-reviewed sources.

Note. If you write on a topic that is part of an
ongoing debate, your argument must address all sides of the issue, and must
represent and persuasively respond to positions different from your own.
Remember that topics, such as abortion and the death penalty, are difficult to
write about because of how polarizing they are. You may find it difficult to
look at all sides of these kinds of debates, especially if you have strong
feelings. Avoid these kinds of debates, and look for something fresh.

If you write on a relatively new or unknown topic, part
of your task will be educating your readers on this topic and proving that it
is worthy of serious public debate.
