ASSIGNMENT 2: STANCE ESSAY DRAFT
Due Week 7 and worth 100 points
For your next assignment, you will write a stance essay. A stance essay takes a position on a topic and argues and supports that position with evidence. Consider your topic: · What possible positions/arguments are there? · What position resonates with you? (Which position do you believe is correct?) · What are your main points? · What are the counterpoints? Are you ready to dispute them? · Do you have enough evidence to effectively support your argument?
For the stance essay, your personal voice (your perspective) should come through. This is just like assignment 1, except you should maintain a formal tone.For this essay, you will need to support your points with credible sources. You’re ready to take a position on the topic you have been writing about!
Important note: Stance Essays DO incorporate research exclusively from the WebText. DO NOT use outside sources. If you have written a Stance Essay in a previous course, please reach out to your professor to see if you can re-use it. You are not permitted to use ANY paper from an unrelated current or past course.
