Discuss the Benefits of Plant-based Diet Over One Which Involves Meat
What is the deeper purpose(my “so what”) that is really worthy of arguing?What are the dilemmas/opportunities that have arisenin your inquiry?What assumptions have tested or challenged your thinking?What would someone who has a very different set ofbeliefs/values than you say about your inquiry?Do you presentthis as a counter-argument in your actual project?Questions for connecting ideas:What’s taking shape? What are you hearing being expressedin your research and what is at the center of yourargument?What has been the strongest argument that has emergedfrom your inquiry question? Is this line up withyour viewsor has this challenged your lens?What was missing from the arguments that already werebeing made? How have you added your own argument,lens, perspective to this conversation? What clarityhave you brought to the argument?What’s been your strongest insight or discovery thatyou made? If you can’t answer what it is you’veactuallydetermined about your question, you do not have afocus.Questions that create depth and forward movement:What would it take to create change on your issueor inquiry? Are you truly calling for a “what if?”What possibilities have you created and who cares?Who is responsible? Why should we care? What challenges exist that would contradict or counter your inquiry argument?What conversation (that is what you are doing, correct?),if begun today, could create new possibilities forthe futureof your argument?Your assignment should include:●The equivalent of 5 pages of writing. If you choosethe formal essay it should have: 12 pt. font, 1-inchmargins, double-spaced. This assignment can includeany medium, mode, or presentation style.●MLA format which includes MLA in-text citations andattached works cited page●Incorporate THREE sources into your paper; however,it is likely that you will pull your informationfrommore sources. True research does not end or concludewith a source number. Use the amount of sourcesthat you feel successfully answers your question.What I will be looking for:Pure, childlike curiosity and investigationA scope specific enough to allow you to go into detailA clear target audienceEffective use of sourcesClaims with supporting evidence and/or examplesA “so what”Contribution to the conversation as argument ratherthan just regurgitating informationAppropriate style and language.A clear and stated thesisRemember to allow yourself enough time to processyour ideas, organize your research, and edit yourdraft. In other words,make sure that you are continually working on thisassignment and pace yourself throughout the process.The most commonproblem students refer to when turning in their researchpapers is a problem that they brought about themselves—leavingtoomuch work for the last minute. Even if you have hadsuccess in the past in last-minute writing, you areunlikely to reproducesuch success in a longer piece of work, such as thisresearch paper. Gathering, analyzing, synthesizing,and presenting ideastakes time to do well.
