Assignment: Write a researched argument
You’re asked to write a researched argument on E.M Forster’s “The Machine Stops” or Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein.
You may write about a character or characters, a theme or themes …
The choice is yours! But keep in mind that you’re writing an argument. Therefore, you will construct a strong, argumentative thesis.
The following link may help: https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/618/01/
The following questions may help too:
• Does this topic really interest you? • Are credible sources of information available? • Can you focus the topic? • Does this topic offer a challenge? In other words, you should select a topic that will allow you to go beyond your current base of knowledge, ideas, opinions, and insights. Remember:
• You’re asked to construct a clear, argumentative thesis • You must find academic journal articles or books that support your argument
The Rules
o Present a persuasive argument o Use convincing reasons, appropriate quotes, and specific evidence to develop your main points o Incorporate credible sources. You will have one primary source (the short story or the novel) and two secondary sources (Wikipedia and SparkNotes are NOT credible sources; Please use our library’s databases to find scholarly sources) o Select sources that support your points o Use MLA style to format your paper and to document your use of sources o Avoid long quotes; try to paraphrase or summarize the author’s words/ideas o Remember: Quotations only support or illustrate a point; they cannot make the point o Essay length: 3.5 – 4 pages (Double-Spaced; Times New Roman; Size 12) o Don’t forget the Works Cited page!
What I’m Looking For:
• A well-organized essay (3.5 – 4 pages) • A persuasive argument • Strong Analytical Content • Style – Compelling word choice, demonstrating insightful use of figurative language; sentences are carefully formed and positioned with attention to emphasis, rhythm and pace to engage the reader; no ambiguous pronouns and overused words • Research Skills – Sources are integrated exceptionally well, appropriate for topic, sufficient, and make up no more than 25% of the paper; correct documentation style (MLA) • Mechanics: Very few to no errors or typos
