Students will write an argumentative essay on a particular issue or event related to the
Olympic Games or the Olympic Movement.
• Any topic that relates to the Olympics qualifies. This essay can focus on an event, an
individual, or a specific incident that influenced the course of the Olympic Games. You can
be very creative in the selection of your topic as long as the central idea of your paper is
related to the Olympic Games (you can choose summer or Winter games). You can
approach this paper from a multidisciplinary perspective: history, political sciences,
education, arts, economics, sociology etc.
• Most important, in this assignment you MUST develop an argument.
• An argument is different from an opinion. Your argument should be well informed and
supported with facts and sources. Therefore, your role is to persuade the reader that your
argument is logical and well supported.
• In regards to the actual argument, you can argue whatever you want to, but remember,
there is a big difference between what is an argument and what is an opinion.
• To defend your argument you will be required to provide good supportive reasons that will
back up your claim. Typically, you need to elaborate on three solid reasons. These reasons
come from the research on that particular topic.
• When writing your paper do not use first person. (e.g. “I believe”, “I don’t agree…”, etc.)
• In this assignment, you must provide a minimum of eight (8) references. Refer not only to
plain Internet sources but also to more scholarly articles. For scholarly articles on the
Olympics check the Digital Library of the LA84 Foundation:

• This essay should be approximately 8-10 pages double-spaced (without including the
references), and it should be written in A.P.A. style format. Use Arial or Times New Roman
size 12 font, 1-inch margins (top, bottom, left and right), indicate page numbers, add list of
references at the end, and include a title page.
