Assignment Details Argumentative Essay (Phase 1) Overview of the argumentative essay: Throughout the course, you will build a 4–5-page argumentative essay.

The final product, written in five phases, requires the following: Assess the writing situation. See page 8 of Chapter 1 in your textbook, English Composition, for specific information about the writing situation. Choose a topic. Research the issue, and analyze evidence to form an opinion. Write a claim (thesis statement) that is supported with reasons from credible sources. Write an introduction that announces your purpose and hooks readers. Write 3 body paragraphs (including at least 1 quotation, 1 summarization, and 1 paraphrase with corresponding in-text citations and references). Write a counter-argument paragraph that addresses an opposing opinion. Write a conclusion that restates your claim and summarizes the evidence. Write the References, Abstract, and Title pages.
