Your paper is required to have five points. They are essentially sub-topics/debates that fit into the main topic. They need to be worded in question format, and they need to be answerable with yes and no. The points are the basis of the argument, so you need to spend time selecting/wording them effectively. You need to make sure you have current, reliable resources that represent both sides, yes and no, for each point.
IMPORTANT: Your opinion cannot enter the essay, so you must rely on reliable sources with strong facts. It’s critical that you not under-represent either side. There has to be a balance of information. A reader cannot get a complete feel for the argument if you provide them with one-sided, opinion-driven insights. It’s important that you NOT rely on non-expert perspectives.
As you gather the sources (see the required source list below), write a note to yourself on each one. Tell yourself whether the source represents Side A (the yes side) or Side B (the no side). There is even the possibility of the source having reliable facts that support both Side A and Side B. Make note of that as well.
If you keep track of the information along the way, you can better utilize it for your paper. In addition, you can easily see whether or not you’re finding equal parts (balance) for both sides. Be sure you understand the information you’re gathering. If you don’t understand the reliable sources, you cannot use them effectively.
You’re required to use a minimum of five reliable sources in your essay, and they must include ALL of the following. NOTE: You can use other reliable sources in addition to these. All sources must be current. So, don’t rely on anything that’s more than five years old.
ALL of these sources are the required minimum:
- Online resource from our library’s database. You can access this at: http://www.westhillscollege.com/lemoore/academics/library/index.asp
- Online book
- Online newspaper, magazine, or journal
- Video from Ted.com
- Personal interview… You conduct this with a reliable source (a reliable source is considered someone who has been educated in the subject or has direct experience with the subject). You can conduct this interview via email, video call, or on the phone. You must ask a minimum of five questions. Those questions should be based on each of your five points.
