Create an argument that supports your thesis position. You should take on the perspective of a critically thinking researcher. The argument must present a thesis statement and evidence to support the thesis statement. Evaluate the ethical outcomes that result from the position you take on the issue and explain how those outcomes would influence society and culture. Interpret statistical data from at least two peer-reviewed scholarly sources. Evaluate evidence using the following standards: validity, reliability, and bias related to the chosen topic and accurately identify strengths and weaknesses. Research and Define the Problem You must take on the perspective of your major field of study and explain in your paper what that perspective is and how it informs your view of the topic. The topics listed above are far too broad to write about in 10 pages. Instead, you must choose a narrowly defined thesis and approach it from the perspective of your field. You must present a complete argument, including a major claim with at least five points of evidence, information, or data that will prove the claim. The thesis statement must be A clear, simple declarative sentence as the first or last sentence in the opening paragraph of the essay. Of such a nature that it can be substantiated, corroborated, verified, and proved through appeal to primary or secondary academic research source materials. The introductory paragraph must Present the thesis statement, an explanation for the importance of the topic, and its relation to the student’s field of study. Beliefs, opinions, and personal opinions must not be introduced at any point in the essay. All beliefs and opinions should be supported with academic evidence. Sweeping generalizations with no supporting academic evidence do not reflect adequate critical thinking skills. Do not include rhetorical questions in your essays. All the questions that are pertinent to your project need to be answered in your essay and your answers again need to be supported with evidence from peer-reviewed journal articles and academically published books. Quotations: There must be no more than 15% quoted content in the body of your essay. All quoted material must bear quotation marks and a full quotation citation. Source Documents: There must be 10 or more source documents used, cited, and referenced. Multimedia sources (such as videos) may be used, but no more than two such sources may be used. If multimedia sources are used, then they must be authored and distributed by credible sources, such as universities, law schools, medical schools, or professors, Where print documents are used for source materials, those must be peer-reviewed, scholarly journal articles, and academically published books. Popular media sources (e.g., newspapers, magazines, television and radio shows, etc.) may not be used. Materials from advocacy groups (e.g., Greenpeace, Human Rights Campaign, National Organization for Women, etc.) may not be used. Two of the peer-reviewed scholarly sources used must include statistical evidence, which must be accurately interpreted. Sites such as ProCon.org and Wikipedia should not be used. Religious texts are neither peer-reviewed nor scholarly and so may not be used in any way.
