Researched Argument Paper: This paper will take a position on an issue and use primary and
secondary research. A successful paper will interact with multiple sources, analyze the arguments
found in those sources, and build ones own ideas upon scholarly research. Topics for the paper
will be suggested in class.
The two research papers must be properly documented and formatted according to MLA,
Chicago, or APA style. The style chosen should be appropriate to the topic and followed
consistently. Your research may be primary (interviews, surveys) or secondary (books, articles).
For your secondary research, print sources are preferred (books, periodicals, newspapers), but
non-print sources (lecture, film, television, radio, the Internet) are also acceptable
