Here are the directions: You will write a 6-8 page, 5+ source research based ar
Here are the directions: You will write a 6-8 page, 5+ source research based argumentative essay that accomplishes one of the two objectives below: · Identifies a finds a product or service with multiple main claims and come to a conclusion on whether it really does deliver on its promises and is worth it. · Identifies a topic of conventional wisdom, a common place belief or something like a myth, legend, lore that is generally believed (possibly beyond all logic) and whether it is real or not. The essay should be an examination, using a mix of scholarly and popular (expert based) research, of the main claims of your topic. Your essay should ultimately show whether your research supports or refutes the claims made by your topic. Essentially, you will be arguing, using outside sources (no personal experience, anecdotal evidence or customer reviews) whether your audience should use a product, service etc. or not—or—whether your audience should accept or ignore common belief or a myth etc. Your thesis should answer this question: Does the scientific research or expert opinions support the main claims of your topic? Your essay should follow the paragraph-by-paragraph guidelines provided below. How well you accomplish the tasks below will determine your grade. ***Be aware that if you do not make the full-page requirement you cannot receive higher than a C for the essay. The essay will accomplish the following tasks: 1) The document must be in proper format according to the guidelines in your textbook. The format should adhere to APA standards including: a double-spaced and readable 12-point font, conventional margins, and indented paragraphs, date, page number, etc. ***You will not have a cover page nor will you have headings or titles for each section of the essay. It must also be submitted as a .doc or .pdf file. 2) The essay must contain (and only contain) an introduction, a body (of paragraphs) and a conclusion. 3) The opening paragraph (introduction) should contain: A hook (series of sentences) that establishes the topic and a general sense of your point of view or importance of the topic. The main points/topics of support (essay map) for your overall argument/response should be present in the body of your introduction. It should end with a thesis that highlights the results of your research. DO NOT provide an extensive background, history, or definition of your topic in this paragraph. Simply announce the topic in brief series of sentences. 4) The thesis statement should be a clear and precise (single sentence) arguable statement at the end of the introduction. It should clearly announce your opinion based on the research. 5) The body paragraphs should contain 1) topic sentences that announce the topic and support your thesis, 2) specific details and examples (evidence), 3) an explanation or analysis of evidence in terms whether it supports or refutes the claims of the topic, and 4) transition sentences that complete then connect ideas/topics. Please note: you should have four or more body paragraphs. 6) Each body paragraph should essentially be a mini-argument (with the informational exception stated below) that contains detailed pieces of evidence from your research that you will analyze to show how it supports or refutes the claims of the topic. These must be accurate representations of the original source/author. Signal phrases (along with parenthetical citations) must be used consistently for all evidence. The parenthetical citations should be error free and in APA format. You must use a mix of quotes and paraphrases. Using only quotes will harm your overall grade. Only use evidence that can be cited. 7) Body paragraph informational exception—One body paragraph directly following the introduction can provide an extensive background, history, or definition of your topic. It does not have to be a mini-argument like the rest of the body paragraphs and can instead be informational. It can layout claims, provide information the audience needs to know about the topic before reading the rest of the essay. The topic sentence for this paragraph must clarify the purpose of this paragraph. 8) The conclusion should restate your thesis and show how your opinion connects to a bigger picture or a logical conclusion—assuming your thesis is correct. For example: if your topic is a product you may discuss alternatives or encourage people to use it; if your topic is a myth, you may warn people of the dangers etc. 9) A correctly formatted APA style works cited page must be provided. This is not included in the page count. The references must be a mix of scholarly/peer-reviewed (at least one source must be peer-reviewed) and verified expert sources. Please note: if you are going to use sources written by experts, you must make it clear that they are experts.

Sources can be 5+ sources 10) The writing style should adhere to generally accepted standards in terms of grammar and clarity laid out in our textbook. There should be little repetition—moments of sharp or concise wording. There should be no distracting problems with grammar and punctuation. 11) Do not use personal pronouns: NO “I, MY, WE, OUR, US, YOU, ETC.” STATEMENTS! 12) When finished submit it to the submission link on our Blackboard site.
