The stereotypes prevent creating and reinforcing diverse society

General Description of Assignment: The first essay for this course is an argumentative essay, limited in scope to the topics/readings covered in the first half of the semester.

Assignment Purpose: The overall purpose of an argumentative essay is to persuade the reader that your thesis or reasoned point of view is correct. It is a way to advance your ideas using logical arguments and evidence. Another purpose of the essay is for you to demonstrate the academic skills of paraphrasing, summarizing and quoting information, along with creating arguments, illustrations, and supporting evidence from sources to support your thesis. While your thesis should make an original claim about an important issue, your supporting evidence should come from the source readings that you have examined and discussed up until this point in the semester. Your original thinking should be displayed through the sources to support your logical reasoning/flow of ideas.

Use of Sources: Sources are limited to the texts used in class thus far. A minimum of three texts must be cited in the essay. (Select texts to cite from among the 6 sources on the topic of identity used in our class: Pang, Maalouf, Selasi, Adichie, Tannen, Delistraty.)

Essay Development: Your essay will be developed through a process of class workshops, outlining activities, peer feedback activities, and (lastly) through a one-on-one consultation with your instructor to discuss either an outline or a draft of your essay.

NOTE:

  • Students must write and submit a final draft of this essay in order to pass the course.
  • The final essay that you submit must align with work done during the development process (topic selection, thesis development, outlines, drafts, etc.)
  • Any changes (esp. topic changes) must be discussed with and agreed to by the instructor well in advance of the final assignment deadline.

Percentage of Course Grade: 20%

Length and Formatting: The essay should be 4 (min) to 5 (max) pages in length, double spaced, written in a standard 12-point serif font such as Times Roman, with standard one-inch (2.54 cm) margins. The essay must adhere to APA (7th ed.) citation stylistic conventions.

General Organizational Guidelines/Tips:

INTRODUCTION (1-2 paragraphs)

Purpose: To create interest in the topic, provide contextual information and state your claim or thesis.

Elements of an Introduction:

  • An opening sentence or passage that creates interest for the reader in the topic.
  • Information that provides the context of the issue or topic. For example, a brief explanation of the theory or issue and why it is significant or meaningful is often used to provide a “frame” or context for the reader in which to view the issue/theory. 
  • Definitions of key terms that may not be familiar to the reader.
  • A clear statement of your thesis or claim at the end of the introductory paragraph or paragraphs (required).

SUPPORTING EVIDENCE PARAGRAPHS

Purpose: To prove your thesis/claim. The number of paragraphs will vary, but you should include as many as you need to provide complete arguments that effectively support your thesis.

Elements of Supporting Evidence Paragraphs:

  • A topic sentence that states the main point of each paragraph. This should be a fact, claim, statement, or example that makes the focus of the paragraph clear.
  • An explanation of the topic sentence.
  • Introduction and/or statement of supporting evidence: the reasons, examples, facts, statistics, quotations etc. that prove/support/explain your topic sentence.
  • Explanation and/or analysis of the evidence: How should the reader interpret this evidence? How does the evidence prove the point you are trying to make in this paragraph based upon your analysis?
  • Concluding sentence: End your paragraph with a concluding sentence that reasserts how the main point of the paragraph proves your thesis and/or helps the reader understand your thesis. This sentence can also provide a transition to the next paragraph.

COUNTER ARGUMENT PARAGRAPH

Purpose: To anticipate your reader’s (or a reasonable critic’s) objections. By responding to these “naysayers,” you, as the writer, show that you can consider and respond to other perspectives, thus strengthening your position. Depending on the topic, this section could be longer than a paragraph and it could come before your supporting evidence paragraphs (i.e. at the beginning of your essay) or after your supporting paragraphs (i.e. just before your conclusion).

CONCLUSION: YOUR “SO WHAT?” PARAGRAPH

Purpose: To remind the reader of your thesis, main arguments, and supporting evidence while illustrating that you have thought critically and analytically about this issue.

Your conclusion should not simply restate your intro paragraph since you will seem to have ended up right where you started. If it does, this may indicate that you need to do more critical thinking about the issue. Instead,

  • Your conclusion should answer the question “So What?”. It should reflect the complexity of the issue and look beyond your essay toward a larger perspective.
  • Your conclusion should tell us why we should care about the ideas you have expressed in your essay. What is the significance of your thesis for the present or future? What do you want the reader to think or do about this issue?
  • ●        Vivid, concrete language is as important in a conclusion as it is in the rest of your essay—perhaps more essential—since the conclusion will leave the reader with a final impression of the validity of your arguments. Be definitive and state your final thoughts boldly.
