4 Paragraphs 1 Page


For the remainder of this course, you will work with a topic of your own choosing. With this topic, you will: (1) complete academic research to investigate the issue, (2) compose a formal, academic research paper to an academic audience, and (3) craft a blog entry to a non-academic audience. This work will span the remainder of the course.

First, though, you will propose your topic in a memo to your instructor. The instructions are below, along with a link (under "Resources") to a memo template, which shows the proper format for your memo.

Since you'll be working with a topic for the rest of the course, please choose a topic wisely. Choose something that you feel passionately about. Choose something you can invest yourself in. 

Your topic must be academic in nature (so not an argument that Coke is better than Pepsi), and it needs to be researchable. This must also be a debatable topic, so you should see at least two clear sides to the issue. 

Additionally, you should choose something you can work with in a 4-5 page argument, so don't try to tackle ALL of gun control, abortion, global warming, or social media. Those are highly complex topics that would need narrowing for this task. I encourage you to survey credible news outlets to seek ideas for relevant, debatable topics. 

The Assignment  

Your memo will be four paragraphs:

Paragraph One: Identify your topic and why it is relevant in today's culture. 

Paragraph Two: Discuss your personal connection to the topic, including any potential biases or obstacles.

Paragraph Three: Discuss what information you need to gather about this topic in order to make a logical, effective argument.

Paragraph Four: Identify the opposition to your argument and discuss how you might convince someone who opposes you.
