Refuting World Population
The controversy paper is a two-page paper based on one of the issues covered on the class survey. In the paper, you will discuss the evidence on the issues based on the readings, reach a conclusion on the controversy, and explain the reasoning behind your conclusion. Your only sources will be the Taking Sides book and topics discussed in class.
You will write your paper advocating the position that OPPOSES your own position on a given issue. I am not concerned with your personal point of view as you will be advocating the opposing view. Based on the evidence, information, data, research, rationale, and arguments from Taking Sides, defend the opposing position.
Begin your paper with a title – your choice. You may be creative in your title, though it should be informative. The paper may be written as an essay, or, if you choose, you may write your paper by creating some type of scenario (example: you are an expert witness testifying before Congress). Do NOT present a one-sided argument. Make sure to acknowledge the alternative point of view and provide a critique of it.
The paper will be evaluated in terms of:
1. Grasp of the issue and points of view
2. Clear statement of your position based upon the evidence
Body of the paper
3. A rationale provided to justify your point of view
4. Use of references to provide supporting arguments/evidence
5. Consideration of the opposing point of view and a rebuttal of the opposing arguments
6. Summary of your position and rationale; discussion of implication, applications, or ramifications
Style and Format
7. Accuracy of information, evidence, data
8. Clarity of writing (spelling, grammar, form, etc.)
9. Proper citation and referencing of information
