Your Options

This semester, we’ve learned about a variety of arguments and wrote about them. In this final paper, you will be required to develop a more comprehensive paper that combines these arguments into one paper. Here are your options:

Causal + Proposal: The first part of this paper should address causes of your topic (if you wrote a Causal Essay, you can use that as a starting point) and the second half should put forth a proposal for this specific topic/issue. For example, if your paper addresses the causes of academic cheating, the second part of the paper would offer a proposal to combat cheating.

Rogerian + Visual: Using your existing Rogerian essay (with substantial revisions/improvements made to the original, where applicable) or a new topic altogether, you must locate and incorporate a relevant visual argument and analyze this using your understanding (mastery, right?) of rhetorical methods and strategies. For example, your Rogerian essay could address animal testing and your visual argument must be directly related to this same topic. Your visual argument must support your thesis in the Rogerian part of the paper (for example, although there are benefits, animal testing is inhumane) and strengthen your stance.

Ethical + Visual: With this option, you’ll choose a topic that lends itself to an ethical essay, take a position and argue it, and supplement it with a related visual. You will be required to unpack, dissect, and analyze the visual using your understanding of rhetorical strategies and methods. Please note that with this option, your visual can support your thesis OR be a good example of an argument that goes against what you’re saying. If that’s the case, criticize it by pointing out logical fallacies.
