CM220M4-1: Synthesize research and data into a written argument.
GEL-1.02: Demonstrate college-level communication through the composition of original materials in Standard English.
Assessment objective: For this Assessment, you will create an academic, formal essay advocating a solution to a problem you have identified in your community or workplace. Using the persuasive, problem-solving thesis statement you developed for the second competency assessment is recommended, but you may develop another if you prefer.
In this essay of approximately 1000 words, you will integrate evidence from at least four credible sources to support the argument for change that you are advocating. In addition to having at least three supporting points for your thesis, you will also need to address a challenge to your argument within the essay, as the ability to do so is a key component of a strong argument. Furthermore, concrete examples should be included to illustrate points, and logical fallacies like those covered in Hasty Generalizations and Other Logical Fallacies should be avoided. Essentially, the essay will reflect your ability to write effectively and persuasively and integrate research to support your idea for change.
Some topics that would be relevant would be advocating a change in policy in your workplace, such as paid family leave or a new safety procedure. If you wish to focus on a community-based problem, you might advocate the need for a recycling program, sidewalks in your neighborhood to increase pedestrian safety, or better flood control measures.
The essay should use a formal, academic style with clear, concise sentences, and effective transitions should be used to ensure cohesiveness. The essay should be formatted in APA style, with a separate title and references page and in-text citations. For more on APA guidelines, see the Purdue Global Writing Center’s Citation and Formatting Guidelines page.
