For Unit 4

Title that Expresses the Main Idea of the Essay

This paragraph is the introduction. The introduction contains an attention-getting strategy, a transition to the thesis, and the thesis statement. The thesis statement is generally the last sentence of the introduction. The thesis statement makes a clear claim. It takes a position and establishes the main idea and structure of the essay. For example: Disciplining children with Attention Deficit with Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) can be challenging, but there are several best practices that help children with ADHD succeed in home and school.

First-level Heading

This section is for background information. Background information needs to define key terms, explain the significance of the issue, address underlying assumptions, and provide any necessary history of the issue’s development. For example: I will describe ADHD symptoms and explain several treatment options. I will show that ADHD diagnoses have been rising in recent years. I will address the underlying assumption that ADHD is a disorder that is beyond a child or parent’s control. I will discuss how schools and parents often struggle to effectively discipline children with ADHD.

First-level Heading

In this section, information is provided which supports the thesis. For example: Positive reinforcement doesn’t sound like “discipline” in the traditional sense. It is proactive discipline that can help reduce the need for reactive discipline following negative behavior. I hope to find some examples of positive reinforcement in my research.

First-level Heading

In this section, additional information is provided which supports the thesis. For example: Communication needs to be clear with children with ADHD. Expectations need to be communicated clearly. Visual reminders can be helpful for kids with ADHD. It is also important to have clear and consistent communication between home and school.

First-level Heading

In this section, additional information is provided which supports the thesis. For example: Children with ADHD may need some flexibility and accommodations. Teachers can help provide accommodations at school. Parents may also need to provide some accommodations at home. Stability balls instead of chairs is one accommodation that helps students with ADHD improve focus and reduce behavior issues. I got information about the stability balls from the source by Fedewa and Erwin (2011).

First-level Heading

In this section, opposing views are addressed. What might someone say who disagrees with your claim? How do you respond? For example: I will discuss practices that are sometimes used that don’t work. Yelling is one ineffective practice. I will research some others and talk to friends of mine who have kids with ADHD.

Conclusion

The conclusion wraps up all the main ideas and reasserts the thesis statement with

Academic Argument Essay

Purpose

The second essay in EN 104 is an academic argument with research documented in APA format. In this assignment, you will use the principles of argument advocate for a position on an issue. You will use evidence to persuade your reader to see your point of view.

Assignment

Conduct research and write a 5-7 page argument essay about a change you would like to see in your community or workplace.

Choosing an argument

Think about your day-to-day experiences. What change would you like to see implemented in your community or in your workplace? Perhaps the technology at your workplace is outdated causing you to spend a lot of time waiting for the computer to update. Maybe the community park in your area is not being maintained at a top level. There are many possibilities so aim your topic toward something that is researchable. Then, you’ll need to select your topic and a position.

A strong argument topic:

Affects people besides you.
For example, in your community the level of homework being required at the elementary school level is increasing at a rate that is no longer easily manageable for your family. Others are affected by the same issue. You could write an argument essay taking the position that elementary school children should not receive daily homework.
Is an issue that people think differently about? Some people may disagree with you completely. Some people may have a different idea about the solution to the problem. Some people may disagree about the causes or effects of the problem you identify.
For example, you might see favoritism in the workplace as an issue and suggest that employee reviews are conducted by a team rather than a single manager. Others might not consider favoritism an issue. Others may agree that favoritism is an issue but think the best solution is rotating managers to different departments every few years. Others might think favoritism exists but believe that it doesn’t significantly affect workers or the company as a whole. A good argument topic can be seen in many different ways.
Is specific. You can’t solve all the problems in one essay.
For example, you may think crime is a big issue in your community. You can’t address all the ways to solve the crime issue, and you can’t address every type of possible crime in one essay. To be more specific, you might focus on one solution and write an essay that encourages more neighborhoods to start official neighborhood watch programs. Or, you might focus on one type of crime and argue that the city should take several steps to reduce gang violence.

Researching an issue

You will need at least 4 sources for this essay. At least two of those sources need to be scholarly sources from the online databases available through Herzing University’s library. The other two sources may be any credible source type.

Organizing and developing an academic argument

Academic argument takes the form of classical argument.

Key elements of classical argument include: A thesis statement at the end of the introduction paragraph that states a position on a specific issue, background information giving a brief history of the issue, three to five reasons/main points to support the position in the thesis, personal experience, observations, and/or research as evidence for each reason, a refutation of opposing views, and a conclusion that calls the reader to action or explains the significance of your issue.

Format

This essay will be 5-7 pages, typed and double-spaced. The cover page and references page do not count toward the 5-7 pages. Follow APA conventions for documentation and formatting. We will cover APA guidelines in class, but you will need to refer to additional resources while writing, revising, and editing your essay. Purdue University’s Online Writing Lab (OWL) or the APA manual are good resources for APA.

Evaluation

A successful academic argument essay will meet the following criteria:

· Introduction/background: The reader is drawn in by an attention-getter at the beginning of the introduction. Necessary background information is provided. There is a transition that leads from the attention getter to the thesis. The thesis statement takes a clear position on a specific, controversial issue.

· Development: Three to five clear reasons/main points support the thesis. Main points are developed with evidence that may include personal experience, observations, and research with at least two sources from the Herzing University library. At least four sources are incorporated into the text to support or challenge main points. Source information is clearly introduced and commented on. Opposing views are anticipated and addressed.

· Organization: The essay follows the classical argument structure discussed in class and on the assignment sheet. Ideas are organized and presented clearly by using strong topic sentences, concluding sentences, and transitions.

· Presentation and Style: The essay is formatted according to the guidelines in the syllabus and APA documentation guidelines. All sources are cited appropriately in text and on a references page. Tone and vocabulary used are appropriate for college-level academic writing. Writing is concise with varied sentence structure.
