This assignment takes the form of a 2 page report (double-spaced in 12-pt type*) that allows you to explore points of view that may be antithetical to your own.You may report on (1) two articles from your Annotated Bibliography that present opposing views on your topic, (2) one article from your Annotated Bibliography and a second article presenting the opposing view(the second article must come from a library database), or(3) the opposing views of any two writers on your topic from the Opposing Viewpoints in Context database.

  Place a heading and header at the top of the page and center your title. Begin with an introduction that includes a brief, informative statement (in lieu of a thesis)explaining your purpose in writing the paper (“In this paper, I plan to . . .”). Be sure to include both authors’ full name and title ofarticle (“For this purpose, I will be summarizing the arguments of . . ., as they are presented in the articles . . .). The next section will present an objective accounting of your sources’ best arguments (pro and con). Use appropriate signal phrases (“According to Andrews,” etc.) and document all summaries, paraphrases, and quotes according to MLA style.

The paper will be a minimum four paragraphs long, butthe conclusion may be quite short. Howe on a separate typed page; center the words Works Cited at the top of the page and cite your sources.

  In-text and block quotations, parenthetical notes, and Works Cited need to follow the rules of MLA Documentation form (8th edition).

  Being objective is being able to remove yourself from the personal emotions and thoughts you may have about the topic, while being able to examine fairly and accurately both sides of the argument you are presenting.

  You may use this exercise as an opportunity to gather material for the section of your final paper that treats refutation and concession. This will go a long way toward establishing your credibility as a writer (your ethos).

  You should, as always, make a special effort to quote, paraphrase, and summarize material from your sources, but your emphasis, this time around,will be on summary.
