The Argumentative Essay

You MUST cite a minimum of two references/sources. Research is REQUIRED for this essay.An effective argumentative essay must have evidence to make its case; most arguments that occur in daily life happen in the heat of the moment and are more likely directed toward saving one’s own pride than toward giving clear and supportive proof to one’s claims.Writing ApproachKnowing how to brainstorm is going to save you from writing a weak essay. Also, knowing how to support your claims with evidence from outside sources will further strengthen your essay. For that reason, this assignment requires the use of two references/sources. In addition, you will add a Works Cited page at the end of your essay. Finally, your Works Cited page will be in MLA (Modern Language Association) format so that all information provided will be easy for your reader to find.Do not rely on .com websites as support for your claims.  Use only .org  and/or .edu websites for your resources.Before attempting this essay:Review all of the chapter sections located in Lessons 6 and 7.Review the available documents and sources located at the Helpful Resources folder on the course menu.Writing AssignmentPurpose: to persuadeMethod of Development: your choiceChoose your own topic, but make sure that it is something that can actually be argued.  You cannot argue something that is a fact.
