Gordon Rule Paper 1: Mash-ups
An argumentative essay is one that makes an argument through research. These essays take a position and support it through evidence, but they are interested in expressing a specific argument supported by research and evidence. In an argumentative essay, you will make an argument for the way you see it from your point of view; however, you must also provide the other perspective (rebuttals), demonstrating with evidence why you believe your opinion should win out. It will be comprised of an introduction with a claim (otherwise known as a thesis), with data to support it. Rebuttals help to strengthen your argument by anticipating counterarguments.
Write an Argumentative Essay.
TOPIC: Is it OK for a pop artist to make a mash-up, a combination of two or more pre-recorded songs into a new recording, take another artist’s music, change it, and call it his/her own? What are the pros and cons of this type of music-making? Is it fair to everyone? Explain why or why not. This information must be contained in your thesis statement. Remember to begin with your thesis statement and purpose and end with a summary that restates your opening statement, using different words.
Your paper should be three (3) full pages in length (approximately 280 words per page), double-spaced, written in 12 pt font, and must conform to MLA guidelines. Do not use extra spaces between paragraphs.
Use at least three different sources. Cite them in the paper as endnotes and provide a fourth page that contains only the Works Cited (the sources you used for your paper).
Remember to use your own words–paraphrase all work and cite all sources. Your work will run through SafeAssign to check for plagiarism.
