ENG 110 Butterfield Fall 2021: Home

"Why people should care about..." assignment. Opposing points of view


"Why people should care about..." Write a 4-5 page/approximately 1700-word research essay (use 11-point Times New Roman font, double-spaced, 1-inch margins, MLA citation style) on a political topic. You must quote at least one published opinion piece (from a magazine, newspaper, or book) from an opposing point of view, at least one published work supporting your own point of view (preferably a recent book or relevant article), and at least two reputable sources of information (not just random, unaccountable websites) supporting your point of view. Write again as if for an audience of your contemporaries in a journal for college students. You will be graded down if you make unfounded claims your opponents can easily shoot down with a fact check (no Fake News!!)
