Opposing Views

PAPER 1: Joining the Argument


  1. Write a 3-4 page paper on your semester article/topic that includes the following:
    1. Introduce the source–the I in ICE (Introduce, Cite, Explain/Elaborate)–by providing the author’s name and credentials and the title of the article.  
    2. Briefly summarize the article (a summary must not include your opinion). 
    3. State your thesis (must be debatable).
    4. In the remainder of the paper (the body paragraphs), expand upon the author’s argument. In other words, you’re joining the author in his or her argument (some or all of it)–not arguing against the author.
  2. Incorporate two additional sources to support your thesis. Note: Your sources must meet the “Acceptable Sources for Papers” requirement found on page 4 in your syllabus. Not meeting this requirement will result in a substantial grade deduction. 
  3. Cite and explain/elaborate upon (the C and E in ICE) any borrowed information before moving on.
  4. This argument will not be complete in that you will not yet address opposing views. Focus only on your side for now.
  5. Quote, summarize, and/or paraphrase accurately using properly formatted in-text citations, and include a Works Cited page. Failure to properly document sources using MLA 8 Documentation Style may result in an F.
  6. Format your paper according to MLA Style and use 12-point Times New Roman. Failure to do so will result in a lower grade.

Caution: Failing to meet even one requirement listed above will result in a lower grade.
