The research paper is essay 4. This is a position paper: You must take a stand, a position, and argue your point-of-view, using the secondary sources from the databases to support your argument. The question is when is it right to break the law? Recently, in the news we have learned about two controversial cases: 1) the founder of Wikileaks and 2) Edward Snowden have released government information to the public. You will have to research one of these to understand the controversy. Use your research to help you form your argument. In addition, the research (5 secondary sources) will be used to create your annotated bibliography which you will post on the Discussion Group.
Some people call the founder of Wikileaks and Snowden traitors; others hail them as heroes. This is a similar dilemma in the play Antigone. The question in the play is who is right or more right, Creon or Antigone? Keep in mind that Antigone as a character represents the rights of the individual; after all, we have the Bill of Rights in our constitution which gives us freedom of speech, the right to assemble, the right to practice religion as we see fit; Antigone represents those rights; she feels it is her religious duty to bury her brother. Creon, on the other hand, represents the needs or rights of the state, of the government, to preserve itself. We all have laws we have to abide by whether we like them or not. Creon sets a punishment for Antigone -- death -- to discourage treason in his state. Who is more right? Why? Choose to support in your argument Edward Snowden and Antigone, for example. Or choose to defend Creon and the U. S. Governement against Snowden. Or choose Wikileaks to defend or attack along with Antigone or Creon.
Remember this is an argumentative essay. Use pathos, logos, and ethos we studied in "Letter from Birmingham Jail" in arguing your point-of-view.
The essay should be 5-8 pages plus a Works Cited page with 5-8 sources from the college databases. Please do not use the Internet.
Outline of essay:
Please double space your essay even though the student examples are single spaced.
MLA heading. You must include your section number. See the checklist for this assignment for an example.
Title (must relate to the thesis)
I Introductory paragraph: give general information about the the Athenian Greek Age and the author, Sophocles. State the name of the play. Do not use any quotations within the introduction. At the end of this paragraph state who is right in the play, Antigone. In the next sentence, your thesis, state who is right in Wikileaks or Edward Snowden versus the U.S. Government and why.
II Second paragraph(s) on Antigone. Use quotations from the play that support your argument that Antigone or Creon is right.
III Several body paragraphs here: as many as you need on Julian Assange of Wikileaks or Edward Snowden.
Explain here the controversy and quote from the articles you've found in the databases that support your point-of-view.
Generally speaking, paraphrase the writers' words but give credit to the critic by using parenthetical documentation just as you do when quoting directly from a writer's own words. Use direct quotations from critics/writers when you feel their words are particularly powerful or insightful, when you feel that to change the wording or sentence structure would water-down the ideas.
Do not plot summarize.
VI Conclusion: The conclusion is thought provoking and interesting.
