The 4th essay assignment is to write a persuasive argument. The topic should be a proposition that falls within one of the themes previously addressed this semester in the course: globalization and community. There are some “prohibited” topics (abortion, capital punishment, legalizing drugs, etc.) only because it is difficult to make a good persuasive case on matters where there may be too much emotion at the heart of issue/topic. Some possible topics related to the course’s themes will be brainstormed in a class period early in the unit.


In addition, in order to begin developing and applying some library research skills, as well to begin practicing proper documentation style, your essay should contain at least three citations to external sources of information. At least one of these must be from a “peer-reviewed” source; only one of your sources can be a web-site (this does not apply to source materials – books, journal articles, etc. – which are stored electronically, such as JSTOR, Academic Search Premier, or government documents).


An “end-of-the semester” reminder regarding the spring semester: Keep all of the books and other materials from this semester – they will be used (or of use) during the spring semester.
