This essay will be a moderately formal essay in which you argue a position on an issue. Are you in favor or opposed to the issue? Next, you will develop 4-6 points that explain why your stance is true. Finally, you will conclude your work by telling the reader why this issue is important to consider. You will not do any formal research for this piece, but you are free to educate yourself about your subject. What this means is that, you can research your subject to learn more about what you are writing about, but you will not incorporate sources and citations into the essay itself. Your work will merely be an explication of your own opinion.
