Reflect: Does your photo tell an audience everything they would need to know about this event? What does your story provide that your picture can’t? Is the saying, “A picture is worth a thou- sand words” true? (Length open)

[3:37PM, 1/17/2016] jan sav: Required Journal Entry 16: Planning Your Argument
Study the argument essay topics on page 167–168 in your digital study guide and choose your topic for your argument. This journal entry will help you begin to plan, research, and organize your paper. Please note that both topics are very broad, so you should narrow your chosen topic appropriately to suit your purpose and interest as well as the research and length requirements.
Review “The Basic Parts of an Argument” on pages 514–520 in Successful College Writing. Once you’ve chosen your topic and identified your issue (516), you need to develop support. According to your text, the three common types of support for an argument are “reasons, evidence, and emotional appeals” (517).
I. State your claim
A. Identify the type of claim (fact, value or policy).
B. Explain your purpose or goal for your research paper.
II. Identify your reasons
A. Reason 1
B. Reason 2
C. Reason 3
III. Start your research to develop support for your claim (provide at least two examples of each):
A. Support your reasons with evidence
1. Facts*
2. Statistic*
3. Expert opinions*
4. Examples*
5. Personal Experiences
B. Identify your emotional appeals
1. Appeal to needs
2. Appeal to values
* Cite your sources using MLA citation and documentation format (i.e., parenthetical citations and a list of works cited).
To research effectively and efficiently, use the Expanded Academic ASAP database in Penn Foster’s digital library. For more information about using Expanded Academic ASAP or other library resources, visit

Reflect: Read Lisa Hamilton’s “Eating Meat for the Environment” and review the graphic organiz- ers on pages 554 and 556–557. In your opinion, does acknowledging Dr. Pachauri’s opposing viewpoint strengthen or weaken Hamilton’s argument?
[3:40PM, 1/17/2016] jan sav: Required Journal Entry 18: Course Reflection
Reflect: Review your journal, starting with your first entry and the learning inventory. Reflect on how knowing who you are as a learner has helped you with the course activities.

Course Journal
Your course journal isn’t just a series of examinations, it’s also record of your progress through English Composition. As you complete the 18 journal entries, you’ll have the opportunity to test the stages of the writing process, practice different methods of organizing your essays, and evaluate your progress in the course. All the journal entries are included in your digital study guide; each entry corresponds to the assigned reading in your textbooks.
The journal serves as the final exam. The three journal exams will count for 33% of your final grade. Remember the following objectives as you work on each journal.
• Identify the steps in the writing process.
• Use prewriting, drafting, revising, and editing to write formal, college-level essays.
• Distinguish among different patterns of development.
• Apply an appropriate pattern of development to a specific purpose and audience.
• Write effective thesis statements.
• Develop paragraphs using topic sentences, adequate detail, supporting evidence, and transitions.
• Define plagiarism and academic honesty.
• Employ responsible research methods to locate appropriate secondary sources.
• Quote, paraphrase, and summarize secondary source material correctly and appropriately.
• Use Modern Language Association citation and documentation style to reference second- ary source material correctly and appropriately.
• Apply the conventions of standard written American English to produce correct, well- written essays.
Directions: Read each entry assignment carefully. Some entries are based on textbook exercises for which the pages are given. Most entries require multiple parts to be considered complete. For example, you might have to complete both a prewriting and a thesis. Assignments generally include a minimum length, a range, or a general format (such as one paragraph). A few assignments allow you to choose the length and format to accomplish the required work. The guidelines list the minimum amount of work you may produce, but you should continue writing until you complete your thoughts.
The course journal is divided into three parts made up of six entries each. At the end of each course unit, you’ll submit your journal for evaluation. Therefore, you’ll submit your journals
• After you complete Lesson 3
• After you complete Lesson 7
• After you complete the course
