You have already developed your Outline, Working Thesis Statement, and Starting Draft. You’ve also received helpful feedback from your instructor. Now it’s time to create your Rough Draft by continuing to write your essay in the document you created in weeks 4 and 5. You will use the questions below to guide your work. You’ll also incorporate the feedback you received from your instructor.
It’s exciting to see how far your essay has already come in just a few short weeks!
Write 2-5 paragraphs for each of your supporting points. Use the following questions to ensure you are writing quality body paragraphs. (I have attached a file with the outline of topics used in the Body of the paper, they are MUST to use. You are welcome to add more topics.)
Does each paragraph include a topic sentence?
Are you including supporting information in each paragraph to make your point clear, logical, and compelling?
Are you being persuasive?
Logic: Do you persuade your audience that your position is logical and reasonable? Do you include facts and sources to back up your claims?
Credibility: Do you persuade your audience that you are credible and trustworthy by using the appropriate point of view, voice, tone, examples, and credible sources? Are your points ethical and honest?
Emotion: Do you appeal to the emotions of your audience by framing your position as a problem they can relate to or with which they
Counter Perspective(s) – (I do not have any counter perspective at this time)
It is important to address counter perspective(s) in your essay. Use the following criteria and select one to three counter perspectives to help strengthen your position:
Is there evidence to support the counter perspective? Does the evidence include fallacies (flaws in reasoning)? If so, identify and explain.
Does the counter perspective leave out an important point? If so, you should point this out.
Is there more recent or credible evidence to support your perspective?
Do you paraphrase or restate your thesis in a new way?
Do you summarize your main points?
Do you state any future research possibilities, if applicable?
Do you leave a lasting impression? How will you get your audience to continue thinking about your topic and/or take action?
This is such a short notice, but I need some assistance and ideas for this paper. It is due August 20th, 8am EST time – Monday!
