Poverty Eradication and Sustainable Development Paper

Students will write a 4-5 page argumentative position paper on one of the course topics, using at least 6 sources. This paper will include: an introduction that gives background information on the topic and has a thesis statement that takes a clear stand, a concession, arguments that are fully developed, counterarguments and provide evidence to support the thesis, the use of appropriate language to support the argumentative genre, and a conclusion summarizes main points and reaffirms the strength of the argument (e.g. suggests a course of action, describes future implications, proposes a possible solution).
