SHOULD THE UNITED STATES KEEP DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME?November 17, 2019 Off All,
This is an argumentative essay. First, do some prewriting to figure out what YOUR position is. Define all sides of the argument: for, against, in the middle. Lay out arguments for your position. Next, lay out those arguments against your position. You have to be able to understand opposing viewpoints if you plan to neutralize their arguments. Finally, craft an essay where you persuade readers that your opinion or course of action is the most reasonable position on this issue. Such an essay will naturally try to dissuade readers from dissenting opinions. To such ends, you need to make use of refutation / rebuttal in your essay. To refute opposing arguments means to neutralize them, to find the flaws in their argument (via fallacies or the fact that such stated positions are clearly not reasonable). Your essay should be approximately six pages in length (your Annotated Works Cited page can count for AT MOST two pages in your final page count), typed, double-spaced, with one inch margins. Use 12 point font: nothing smaller than Times New Roman; nothing larger than Courier New. Your essay should be MLA formatted. You will be expected to develop a thesis driven essay that focuses on a single-perspective persuasive argument. It should convince the reader that your position / course of action is the most reasonable. It should effectively negate opposing arguments through the use of refutation/rebuttal. Your essay should make use of at least four (4) outside sources, two supporting your position, and two supporting an opposing viewpoint. Proper MLA citation and documentation-including parenthetical citations in the text of the paper and an “Annotated Works Cited” page-is an absolute necessity for this paper. Good luck on this assignment.
