Ashford 6 - Week 5 - Final Paper Argument Paper For

Resolved Question:

Ashford 6: - Week 5 - Final Paper


Argument Paper

For the Final Paper, you will identify a specific claim relative to one of the topics listed before and defend it with as strong an argument as possible. These topics are presented below as questions. The best way to develop a thesis statement is to offer an answer to the question, and then state in a clear and specific sentence the basis for your answer.

Should homosexuals be able to marry?
Is racism and anti-Semitism still a problem in the United States?
Is factory farming cruel to animals?
Is anthropogenic climate change (what used to be known as "global warming") a problem that needs immediate and/or long term attention?
Should physician-assisted suicide be legal?
What, if any, limits should there be to embryonic stem cell research?
Should public workers be allowed to join unions and engage in collective bargaining?
Is the death penalty just and applied fairly?
Are there any legitimate restrictions on gun ownership?
Is it a problem if one percent of Americans possess 50% of American wealth and assets?
Should abortion be legal?
Should evolution be taught in the public schools?
Are science and religion in conflict?
Can one be moral and not believe in God?
Part One – Thesis
In this part of the paper, the thesis is to be stated clearly and specifically. It should appear no later than the end of the introduction paragraph.

Part Two – Argument
This part of the paper will present the argument for the thesis. The focus should be on identifying the strongest support for the thesis. Then, present that support by constructing an argument. This argument, or set of arguments, will probably employ both deductive and inductive reasoning.

Part Three – Counter-thesis and counter-argument
In this part of the paper, the strongest objection to the thesis is presented along with an argument (probably briefer than the argument in Part Two) for that thesis.

Part Four – Response to counter-thesis
In this part of the paper, you respond to and refute the counter-argument based on evidence discussed in Part Three. This response will draw on the earlier argument in Part Two to show that the original thesis can be defended against this objection.

The paper will be evaluated in terms of the grading rubric. The clearer your presentation of the debate and the more specific you can be in that presentation, the stronger the paper will be.

The Final Paper must be six to eight pages in length. You must use at least four resources, at least one of which must provide support for your thesis and at least one of which must provide support for your counter-thesis. Two of the four required resources must be found in the Ashford Online Library. The Final Paper must be formatted according to APA (6th edition) style, and all resources must be properly cited in text as well as on the reference page. If you would like to refer to APA samples and tutorials, log into the Ashford Writing Center (USER NAME: ashford; PASSWORD: student). Click on the “APA & Research Guides” tab and review the resources.

Writing the Final Paper
The Final Paper:

Must be 6 to 8 double-spaced pages in length, and formatted according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
Must include a title page with the following:
Title of paper
Student’s name
Course name and number
Instructor’s name
Date submitted
Must begin with an introductory paragraph that has a succinct thesis statement.
Must address the topic of the paper with critical thought.
Must end with a conclusion that reaffirms your thesis.
Must use at least 4 scholarly resources, including a minimum of 2 from the Ashford Online Library.
Must document all sources in APA style, as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
Must include a separate reference page, formatted according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
Carefully review the Grading Rubric for the criteria that will be used to evaluate your assignment.

DXJ Writer :

Hi! Thanks so much for requesting me! I can help. I cannot however guarantee it by midnight tonight. (I have really been under the weather for 3+ days, unfortunately.) I can try! I will start on this shortly and keep you updated if that's okay. I can promise by this time tomorrow. Let me know, OK?

Customer:

Hello DXJ,

DXJ Writer :

Hi!

Customer:

I'm so sorry to hear you have been ill. I also hate placing this huge responsibility on you at this time. I had a power outage in my community and the power didn't come back on until yesterday.

DXJ Writer :

I had that happen a week or two ago. So sorry for you! At least, it's back:-)

Customer:

I have notified my instructor and TA of what is going on . I can still submit my paper but will the points off penalty. You did and excellent job on my first paper and I reall y appreciated that.

DXJ Writer :

Aw.......thanks!

Customer:

So do this assignment in APA format, it must be 8 pages of body, and tilte page worded the same way except it has to have the date I'm going to submit it. And a reference page.

DXJ Writer :

I was thinking that we could argue that the need for "hate crime laws"

DXJ Writer :

and the FBI taks force created to address such crimes substantiate alot of it, as do the persistence of the EEOC

DXJ Writer :

It says 6-8 pages in your description:-)

DXJ Writer :

Counter argue that the Civil Rights Act, the EEOC and affirmative action are "enough"

Customer:

I wish to God I had contacted you in the first place do you know how much runaround I have had? until I saw your message again, and thought about going directly to you.

DXJ Writer :

and that the hate laws relative to speech violate the first amendment:-)

DXJ Writer :

What do you think?

DXJ Writer :

Well, next time you can post it to me directly......... or just request me. You can always put "DXJ" in the message line and message me:-)

Customer:

Now the instructions say 6-8 pages but I am happy with what you come up with. I got a very good grade for my paper this last assignment, even though it was late. You did it timely, and excellently, I'm not lazy, it just that I really need expert help. I've been muddling along on my own for quite sometime.

DXJ Writer :

I understand............

Customer:

And been getting mediocre grades, I want better! I pay a lot of money to go to college. So in the future, I will contact, request you Ms DXJ. All shoes, makeup, and dresses are formally on hold because Ms DXJ will be getting paid!

DXJ Writer :

:-) Aw...........which degree are you pursuing?

DXJ Writer :

LOL- I buy few things:-0

Customer:

Business Administration and my new class also started today Interpersonal Communication. So I did my intro and I will answer some of my classmates bio's as well. We are the the new educational team!

DXJ Writer :

Very cool!

Customer:

I'm home for the evening, if you have any questions let me know I will be on the computer. And keep your contact information close and handy! I know I won't have any more run around now that I have contacted you. But please take care of yourself as well.

DXJ Writer :

Thanks! I'm trying! Just need to rest in between tasks........not quite my style but that is how it is. I'll keep you posted! Thanks again for your patience. I appreciate it!

DXJ Writer :

Customer:

DXJ, rest as much as you need to I already informed my instructor of this power outage so he has to a lot for some time for that. I know I won't get an A but with your expertise I certainly won't get an F either. So if take care, take your time, I stoppped all worries when I knew it was going to be addressed by you. When ever you get it done he will get it. Now take a nap!

DXJ Writer :

OK. Thanks so much for your kindness and patience. I appreciate it and YOU!

Customer:

No Dear, I appreciate you! My area of expertise is cosmetology and makeup not all this APA stuff. I have learned a lot in the last 3 years. But in the last few months I also had a class at Wayne State University. It has ended last Thursday and our grad day is the 20th Aside from working and taking take of my life I'm just tired. So I know better than anyone about having too many irons in the fire.

DXJ Writer :

I am about 3/4 through........will take a rest in a bit. It's coming along better than I hoped. It will be a very strong argument!

Customer:

How hare you today? I'm okay with you taking out the time for yourself. I know you will make me proud. Keep up the good work!

DXJ Writer :

:-) No rest yet. working on citing this now..............
