Mapping the Issue Essay (20% or 200 points)
English 1213: English Composition and Research
Issues rarely—if ever—have only two sides. This assignment asks you to explore, explain, and analyze the multiple perspectives on a chosen issue.
In order to develop your Mapping the Issue Essay, begin by identifying sources related to a current, real-world issue. Once you have gathered, read, and annotated a significant number of sources, you will be ready to begin your Mapping the Issue Essay.
Begin by asking yourself the following questions about your issue: What caused the issue? What prompted past and present interest and concern with it? Who is interested in the issue and why? What are the various views in the ongoing conversation about this issue?
Identify the multiple perspectives on the issue (groups with a stake in the issue). Summarize at least four of those perspectives, noting how people who identify with each perspective support their arguments. Be sure to discuss each perspective in neutral, unbiased, objective terms. In other words, you should not reveal your own perspective on the issue in this paper.
Each of the four perspectives you include in your Mapping the Issue essay must belong to an identifiable, namable group and be backed with relevant source material.
Your audience is a group of readers who are interested in your topic and who hold firm opinions about it. You will need to make sure to represent all four perspectives on the issue in such a way that readers from all four “sides” of the debate could agree with your descriiption of their perspectives on the issue.
For this assignment you must:
Identify an issue for readers and establish the why it matters.
Explain the issue and describe at least four perspectives on the issue without revealing your opinion
Integrate and cite your sources correctly. Include quotation, summary, and paraphrase in the essay
Write 3-4 pages in MLA Style with Works Cited in 12pt. Times New Roman font.
Employ effective transitions between paragraphs
Note: All uses of sources require citations. When you refer to sources within your text, do the following:
1) Introduce the sources to let readers know who is speaking: According to John Smith, editor of the New York Times. . . . .
2) Present the source in a summary, paraphrase, or quotation.
3) Cite the source. If you have named the author, you need to include only the page number in parentheses after you have used the source. If you have not named the author, you need to include the author’s last name and page number in parentheses after you have used the source. If there is no author, use the first few words of the title. Remember that the purpose of the parenthetical citation after using a source is to lead readers to the full information about the sources in the Works Cited list.
4) Comment on the sources. Source material should not be assumed to speak for itself. You need to introduce it, share the source material, and then comment on (contextualize) what the source means
