Argumentative Research Paper

Final Research Paper:

You should take an argumentative stance. That way, you will not be simply writing a book report like you may have had to do in other classes or even in high school. You will be able to formulate an argumentative topic in which you take a stand on a particular issue.

A reasonable person should be able to take the opposing side of your issue. Your job, then, is to convince him that your position is correct, or at least that it should be seriously considered. If there are not at least two sides to your issue (look at your thesis statement), you basically have a review of the literature, not an argument.

Topic: The affects sugar have on the brain.
