For your first formal assignment, you must write an exploratory argument of 1,000 to 1,200 words on the academic issue that you have identified in the journal article you summarized and the three subsequent articles you have found and read. Your exploratory argument must follow MLA style, including the use of parenthetical citations and a “Works cited” page.
Your exploratory argument is not designed to convince or to persuade readers of a position. It is an exploration of ideas designed to stimulate and to clarify your own thinking on the issue you have chosen. Although you may already have beliefs and opinions about the issue you have selected, you should set your views aside and focus on examining your sources’ various positions on the issue. Although you will state your tentative position on the issue in your conclusion, readers should not be able to discern your position until that point in your argument.
Effective arguments of all types must present all sides of an issue fairly. The success of your exploratory argument will hinge upon how well you can do this. When you read and describe opposing points of view, always give the authors and their ideas the benefit of every doubt. Try to understand how these authors arrived at their positions. You should rely primarily on summary and paraphrase, rather than direct quotation, in presenting the ideas of your source. Your use of paraphrase and summary, however, does not reduce your obligation to cite the sources of your ideas, using parenthetical citations and appropriate signal phrases.
Your exploratory argument must provide sufficient background on the issue about which you are writing, describe the various positions taken by the authors you cite and the evidence they use to support those positions, and, in your conclusion, explain the tentative position that you have reached, based on your limited research.
• Your exploratory argument must be 1,000 to 1,200 words long (excluding the works cited page).
