Write a 4-6 page essay that makes an argument and where you support your claims with scholarly research from the databases/library. Please review your comments on previous essays for guidance as to MLA mistakes you may have made in the past—MLA formatting will be a significant part of your grade for this essay.
Here are your prompt options:
A. Think about the novel you read for this class. The main character exhibits many behaviors that are destructive. We don’t see him receive any punishment from his caretakers for these behaviors. Take this idea and expand on it. How should children be punished? Should they not be punished at all? What kind of punishment is most beneficial for children? What is “too far”? Craft a well-researched essay that argues one side or the other.
B. Think about the novel you read for this course. The novel is considered young adult literature. It has dark themes and circumstances that occur. Do you see the value in this text through its themes and ideas, or do you believe that the text should not be read by young readers. Should books like this be read by young people who may still be innocent in order to give them experience thinking about dark subjects? Or should we let young people remain innocent for as long as possible? Craft a well-researched essay that argues one side of the argument or the other.
You will need:
-An argument that has two sides
-A thesis statement using the model given to you
-paragraphs using the claim, data, and warrant model
-4 sources of research that will be used as the data in your paragraphs
-a paragraph with a counter claim (also using claim, data, and warrant)
-an introduction and conclusion that discuss your topic in a broad way and connect to one another
-in-text citations that lead to your Works Cited page
-a properly formatted Works Cited page with your 4 sources correctly cited
NOTE: your research will be done through the library databases. Your research could only come from outside sources one you’ve met the 4 source requirement.
Notes: All data must correlate with one of the subpoints in your thesis. Also, the data must work to prove the claim for that paragraph. The claim of the paragraph should also correlate to one of the subpoints in your thesis. See the connection? Yes? Good. Now tie the claim and the data together by using a warrant at the end of your paragraph that explains, in your own words, the quotation and the connection between the quote, your claim in the paragraph, and your thesis.
(CC) Although it is not possible to prevent the poverty that is occurring in many countries, (C) it seems that poverty is contributing, in a major way, to ethnic violence. This is seen in examples such as (1) _________, (2)_________, and (3) _________.
(C1) The idea of ethnic conflict has been around for a long time, but it is just now coming to the forefront of conversations around the world. Ethnic conflict can lead to issues such as genocide and are happening in countries with high rates of poverty.
(D1) According to Mariana Tepfenhart who wrote the article “The Causes of Ethnic Conflicts”, “Ethnic conflicts are not new phenomena. Such conflicts have existed all over the world
for centuries…” She continues by stating that “…but in the last 20 years, after the fall of Communism, they are in the focus of public attention due to the war in Rwanda, the events in Eastern Europe, and the disintegration of the former Soviet Union” (Tepfenhart 84).
(W1) Tepfenhart comments that ethnic conflicts have been going on for much longer than we may realize. Certainly, the ethnic conflicts that occurred previous to the last 20 years, according to Tepfenhart, were not any less important than the conflicts that occurred more recently, but it seems that more attention and emphasis has been placed on these new conflicts. The common denominators in the countries with these problems seem to be: 1. The fall of communism and 2. poverty.
a minimum of 4 sources: 1 counterclaim source (to be used in the 1st paragraph) and AT LEAST 3 sources that both back up your claims and tie in directly with your thesis statement.
Works Cited page where all sources are correctly cited in MLA format.
