FINAL ASSIGNMENT: PROPOSAL DUE MONDAY, APRIL 25, BY 11:59PM This paper will be the culmination of everything that we’ve worked on so far in class. You’ll use the skills you’ve learned from our work with They Say, I Say to analyze texts, respond to them, integrate them into your own writing, and use them to persuade a specific audience to adopt a detailed proposal. You’ll also use the research skills we’ve worked with to find good academic sources that allow you to objectively approach your topic, and you’ll use your revision skills to refine and perfect this major assignment. ASSIGNMENT: Write a detailed proposal to solve a specific problem. To do this, you’ll need to do the following: • Identify a problem about which people argue. • Research the problem, considering many different viewpoints. • Identify an individual person who can actually do something to solve this problem. Put this person’s name at the start of your paper in some form. • Write a paper that convinces this person to adopt a proposal of your own creation that will solve the problem. To do this, you’ll need to: o Educate the person about the problem. o Convince the person that the problem needs to be solved. o Lay out a detailed proposal and convince the personthat your proposal is realistic, acceptable to all parties involved, and is the best option to solve the problem. • Remember: Audience is paramount. What will this particular person consider convincing? Your paper will be 5-7 pages in length, not including the Works Cited page. The paper must be in MLA format and include proper documentation for all sources. SOURCE REQUIRMENTS: You may use as many sources as you want, but you must meet the following minimum requirements: • You must have five sources in total. • At least two of these must be scholarly (peer-reviewed) articles. • All five must be credible sources. Consider respected journals, magazines, publications, and so forth first. Be wary of blogs, YouTube hosts, etc. Using the library shelves and databases is a reliable way to find credible sources. • Sources should represent a variety of viewpoints on your issue. • Reference sources such as dictionaries and encyclopedias are fine, but they will not count toward your five sources. GRADING: You will be graded on the following: Quality of thought, clarity of purpose, organization, language, mechanics, information literacy, and documentation. These are the main areas on which we’ve focused and are the criteria used for assessing freshman writing in all Upstate composition courses. Details can be found in the rubric posted under “Course Documents” on Blackboard. DUE MONDAY, APRIL 25, BY 11:59PM
