What does your argument add to this ongoing conversation?

Learning Goal: I’m working on a english writing question and need a sample draft to help me learn.Formatting: 5-7 pages (1250-1750 words), double-spaced, 12 pt. Times New Roman font, 1-inch margins, MLA at least minimum 4 sources; At least one of your four sources must be a scholarly book or a peer-reviewed article from a scholarly journal. You are encouraged to reference primary sources (political cartoons, advertisements, opinion columns, a short story, etc.).Make an argument about your topic: This argument must be clearly stated in a working thesis statement. All body paragraphs (and evidence) must be focused and organized, clearly relating back to your thesis. Think about the occasions and motivations for argument that we discussed in class if you feel lost.
Give an overview of the “ongoing conversation” around your topic and where your argument fits into this conversation. Are you countering conventional knowledge around this topic? Are you adding information that is new? Are you agreeing with specific scholars writing on this topic? Are you creating a “middle ground” where there is none? What does your argument add to this ongoing conversation?
Engage with at least one counter argument. This is a chance for you to show me that you can engage with other people’s takes or opinions and successfully address their concerns while emphasizing that your points are valid. These counterarguments don’t have to be directly “counter” to what you are arguing but they do need to be different than or complicating your points. Ex: If you are talking about a genre or an issue that many people don’t think is serious proving that it is being narrated this way and then showing us why it’s important can count as your “counterargument”.
Clearly articulate the stakes of your argument. This can be connected to Point 3. It should be clear why your argument is important and/or that your argument has an impact. What would your readers miss out on if they DIDN’T read your argument? What do they gain by reading your paper?
Research sources appropriate to your topic, and effectively use those sources as evidence to support your arguments. Although you may use course texts, you must research and use at least four outside sources. Within these four sources a good rule to stick to could be to aim to have at least one argument, background, and exhibit source. Cite all sources using MLA Format. Your paper must include proper parenthetical citations (in text citations) and a Works Cited page.
Requirements: 1250-1750 words
