RESEARCHED ARGUMENT ESSAY GUIDELINES
(Based on Tom Regan’s “The Case for Animal Rights” on page 608 in the
course text, “The Norton Reader”. Argue for or against the essay and/or
the issue presented in the essay using the essay/text as the main source. Strategies of Argument:
-Explore a question. (Many arguments develop from problems that puzzle.)
-Make a claim. (Some arguments may begin with opinions that can be supported
with good reasons and convincing evidence.)
“Any claim should be followed by its proof.” –Aristotle Presenting Evidence:
-Recognize reliable sources* of information-MINIMUM of (2) sources; including
the text.
-Provide evidence for all your claims
*use .gov (government sites) .org (non-profit sites) and/or .edu
(educational sites) for reliable sources. (.com could be anyone) Reasons for Argument:
-Argue for the greater good; lesser evil
-Fairness and Equality
-Long-term or short-term good
-Benefit for greater numbers
-For or against self-interest
-Feasibility

TIPS:
-Handle information honestly, quote fairly from your sources, anticipate
objections, argue civilly, be credible, and use emotional appeals sparingly
-Remember to stay away from using the first person “I”; this weakens the points you
are trying to make.
-Share background information about the author either in the introduction or second
paragraph. This will answer the reader’s question “Why should I, or shouldn’t I, listen to
this author?!”

FORMAT:

MUST HAVE A WORKS CITED PAGE OR CONSIDERED PLAGAIRISM!
(Use MLA or APA format for works cited page and documentation within the text)

All papers will be polished essays of 500-750 words. They should show organization and clarity in
their support and delivery of thematic ideas. All elements of good writing apply. All papers
should be submitted according to proper MLA or APA format. They must be typed, doublespaced, and in 12 point Times New Roman format. Where applicable, a works cited page must
be included
