For this paper, you will research issues/conflicts that matter to you and that probably even affect you at some level. Option 1 (The Local Level): Identify a problem in your geographic region that affects you. Option 2 (The National/International Level): Identify a national/international issue that affects many people. Regardless of which option you select, try to determine who is responsible for this problem. Using at least 5 scholarly sources, try to learn about the problem and to identify the factors that seem to have helped create it. If you don’t have all 5 scholarly sources, you will automatically lose 3 points from the 10 possible points allotted for the final of this essay. Look also for potential solutions to the problem. Then write an essay to an audience (for example, the readers of your local newspaper or residents of an area affected by the problem or to an International Organization) in which you discuss the problem and argue for what you think is the most feasible solution to the problem. Your paper should: Introduce the problem that interests you. (I chose “Racial discrimination in the criminal justice system”) 1. Persuade the reader of the importance of focusing on your problem. Why should the reader care? 2. Develop a critical (i.e. you must analyze both sides of the argument before you choose one side; and you must use scholarly articles) stance regarding this problem. 3. Have an appropriate title. You may use print resources, such as magazines and newspaper articles in addition to the 5 required scholarly articles/books. Format: 3 pages, Times new Roman, 12 point, 1-inch margins, single spaced. Papers shorter/longer than 3 pages will be penalized. Choose from these argument styles: Toulmin-base argument, middle ground argument, argument based on a microhistory and rogerian argument. Please no plagiarism. You must give credit to every source.
