(Argument with Research) MLA format

(Argument with Research) Study the following webpages: http://2016election.procon.org/view.source.election.php?sourceID=13603#clinton-positions http://2016election.procon.org/view.source.election.php?sourceID=13595#trump-positions https://www.hillaryclinton.com/issues/ https://www.donaldjtrump.com/positions Choose one candidate's position on just one issue (for example, Donald Trump's position on immigration), and argue for or against that position, using reliable, unbiased, scholarly source material for your evidence. Keep in mind that you are not arguing for or against the overall suitability of one candidate or the other. You are simply taking an in-depth look into (i.e., researching) just one candidate's position on one issue and then arguing for or against that one position. Official Assignment: Compose a persuasive essay of at least (1000-1250 words strongly recommended) in which you argue for or against one major policy position of Hillary Clinton or of Donald Trump. You must incorporate evidence drawn from at least five outside sources, and these must be correctly integrated, cited, and documented. At least five sources required, and at least three of them scholarly. (The other two can be popular, but they must be serious and reliable.) All source material (summary, paraphrase, quotation) must be properly (a) integrated, (b) cited, and (c) documented according to MLA conventions. Plagiarized essays (even a single sentence!) will receive a zero and may not be resubmitted. Essays will be checked by SafeAssign. At least 1,000 to 1,250 words strongly recommended. Tips and notes: Construct a basic argument first (a working thesis and some preliminary support), and only then look for source material to help you advance your own argument. Your research might lead you in new directions, and that’s fine, but it’s much easier to start with your own basic argument. Otherwise, you can be overwhelmed with information. Conduct true scholarly research: Avoid Wikipedia, Google, and the like. None of the websites linked above may count towards your five-source minimum. You're free to quote them (if cited and documented), but they don't count towards your five sources. Avoid repeating unsubstantiated claims made by politicians and pundits. Your evidence should be demonstrable facts, not hearsay or rhetoric. Do not rely on the candidates' own words (or those of their surrogates/spokespeople) as "evidence." You should quote the candidates by all means, but his or her own assertions are not evidence. Find independent data. Use the Lawson State Library’s databases to find source material. Pay attention to dates. Politics is always a fluid debate. An article from 2009 might be completely outdated. If you're looking for hard data to support your argument (annual numbers of asylum applications, for example), find the most up-to-date numbers you can. Beware biased sources. For example, The Heritage Foundation is a conservative think tank, while MoveOn.org is a progressive advocacy organization. Both organizations have a clear political viewpoint and an agenda. This certainly doesn't make them bad organizations, but they are not a neutral or objective source of reliable evidence. Take a skeptical attitude towards the claims of sources like this. You will need to research the background of non-scholarly sources like these in order to detect bias. You might find this site useful: http://www.politifact.com/
