essay. Once you draft your essay and
revise, you may submit it for feedback. The feedback will help
you revise the draft so you can submit it
as a final. The final version will be graded.
Option #1: Your Position on Pirated Movies
Develop a
thesis statement
on the topic of pirated movies (piracy hurts the economy by…,
society can
prevent movie piracy by…, etc.) and write an argumentative
essay. Strive for
at least three strong
arguments
in addition to a
counterargument and refutation
(see counterargument and refutation
details in the Top Ten Tips section). Using
argumentative topic sentences
that include your opinion for
each section can help ensure the majority of your essay is
argumentative. Beginning of a sample topic
sentence: “The first way movie piracy hurts the economy is….”
Then be sure to support that claim with
researched data.
Conclude each paragraph
with a sentence that summarizes the paragraph’s main
ideas.
Sample Thesis Statement:
Ideally, a thesis would include the major assignment objectives
for the essay, which in this case would
be your claim/opinion, reasons why you have that opinion, and
the counter-argument: “Movie piracy is
unethical because (add argument 1), (add argument 2), and (add
argument 3), even though (add
counterargument focus).”
Note that a thorough thesis statement will include the
counterargument
in addition to your own
arguments.
See Top Ten Tips section for more thesis statement assistance.
Use
at least three
credible sources
(the author should be considered an expert on the topic in which
he
or she writes; try Google Scholar to search), such as books,
articles, and websites, to support your thesis.
Include a mix of
cited paraphrases, summaries, and quotes
in your argumentative research paper. Use
MLA format to create proper parenthetical citations as well as a
Works Cited
page at the end of your
essay. For additional Works Cited assistance visit

and use the left navigation menu to locate the type of reference
you need.
Option #2: Your Position on Electronic Policing
Develop a
thesis statement
on the topic of electronic policing and anti-plagiarism software
and write an
argumentative essay. Your chosen topic needs to be specific and
might address a question like the ones
you see in these examples:
•
Should student writers be subject to having their work checked
by anti-plagiarism software?
Why or why not?
•
Is anti-plagiarism software an effective deterrent to stealing
published work? Why or why not?
•
You may choose another topic regarding electronic policing as
well; just be sure that your main
thesis addresses the topic of
electronic policing
.
If the assignment does not address one of the given options, it
will not be graded
.
Strive for
at least three strong arguments
in addition to a
counterargument and refutation
(see
counterargument and refutation details in the Tips section).
Using
argumentative topic sentences
that include your opinion for each section can help ensure the
majority of your essay is
argumentative. For example, “First, students should be subject
to having their work checked by antiplagiarism
software because….” Then be sure to support that claim with
researched data.
Conclude
each paragraph
with a sentence that summarizes the paragraph’s main ideas.
Sample Thesis Statement:
Ideally, a thesis would include the major assignment objectives
for the essay, which in this case would
be your claim/opinion, reasons why you have that opinion, and
the counter-argument: “Students’ work
should be checked by anti-plagiarism software because (add
argument 1), (add argument 2), and (add
argument 3), even though (add counterargument focus).” See
Tips section for more thesis statement
assistance.

assistance
and to learn if your thesis is both arguable and narrowed.
A
counter-argument section
for this paper should explain what the opposition believes, and
it is the
opposite of the opinion you are arguing in your paper. For
example, if you are arguing that antiplagiarism
software
should not
be used in college classes, then the counterargument would be
that antiplagiarism
software
should
be used. Then in your
refutation
, try to prove the counterargument false,
insignificant, or unimportant with researched information that is
new to the essay (avoid recycling facts
from a previous argument in the essay).
