Week 1 – thesis & outline submission (mandatory submission to the owl

The is assignment is comprised of two parts, a persuasive thesis statement and an outline for your persuasive paper. The persuasive thesis statement is worth 20 points of the overall grade and will be graded based on the thesis statement being submitted in a persuasive format and the components that you will be addressing within the paper. Grammar and mechanics are worth 10 points, a deduction of one point will be taken off for each different type of grammar or mechanical error that is made. The outline will be worth 70 points and will be graded based on you presenting the components of your thesis statements (topics) and two subtopics under each component. There should be a minimum of three topics with two subtopics under each. The number of points assigned to each topic will vary based on the number of topics used; for example, if a student presents five topics with two subtopics then each is worth 14 points (70 divided by five), if a student presents four topics with two subtopics then each is worth 17 points (70 divided by four), if a student presents three topics with two subtopics, then each is worth 23 points( 70 divided by three).  

  • Paper Requirements
  • The requirements regarding paper length and format of resources should also help determine which topic you choose. Think about the following before choosing a topic:
  • How long is my paper supposed to be and can I find enough information on my subject to write that much? Alternatively, is my topic too big or too general for a paper of this size?
  • What sort of resources does my instructor want me to use (databases, government statistics, etc.) and can I find those on this topic?  Remember it is a good idea to do some preliminary research to determine whether or not there are enough resources in the required formats.
  • Does the paper have to be about a current topic or the history and development of something?
  • Paper Outline:
  • If you are not really familiar with constructing a template for a research paper outline, please review the following example:
  • Title
  1. Topic One
    1. Subtopic 1 (Topics you want to cover)
    2. Subtopic 2 (Topics you want to cover)
    3. Etc
  2. Topic Two
    1. Subtopic 1 (Topics you want to cover)
