This is the second of two (2) position papers based on the following scenario to be completed in this course.

Imagine that you are running for a state office (e.g., governor,

senator, or representative) and you have to prepare a position paper for

a debate on controversial issues in the news. (Select one (1) of the

topics addressed in Weeks 5-9 of this class.) You will want your

position paper to demonstrate critical thinking, sound logic, valid

claims, personal passion, and credible support that is cited correctly

because the paper will be provided to the news media before the debate

and will be scrutinized by the media and reported on regarding these

criteria. Your professor will serve as your close advisor whose job is

to review the paper and provide feedback to you on the paper’s strengths

and weaknesses.

Write a two to three (2-3) page (700 to 1,200 words) paper in which you:

  1. Introduce
    your position using a thesis statement in the first paragraph,
    including a quote, question, or statistic from your reliable sources and
    an overview of the main points you will cover. (It’s important to grab
    the audience’s interest and inform them of what the main and support
    points are.)
  2. Provide three or four (3-4) major points to support your thesis statement. (Put each major point in a separate paragraph.)
  3. Provide one (1) paragraph in which you identify and answer an expected argument against your view.
  4. Organized arguments and support for claims effectively.
  5. Demonstrate
    personal passion for your position and critical thinking with
    persuasive language, sound logic, valid claims, and credible support for
    the claims.
  6. Provide two to three (2-3) credible and reliable
    references (in addition to the text) about current events, which have
    been published in the last five (5) years and are cited correctly in the
    position paper. (Wikipedia is not an acceptable source.)

Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:

  • Be
    typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with
    one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA.
    Check with your professor for any additional instructions.
  • Include
    a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s
    name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover
    page and the reference page are not included in the required assignment
    page length.

The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:

  • Apply critical thinking skills to the analysis of issues involving mass media and society.
  • Use technology and information resources to research issues in media and society.
  • Write clearly and concisely about media and society using proper writing mechanics.
  • Note: Depending on the student’s topic selection, the outcome measured might include one of the following:
  • Evaluate the appropriateness of various media forms for different audiences.
  • Analyze selected legal issues and policy regulations pertaining to the media.
  • Determine how new forms of technology impact first amendment rights
  • Analyze various issues affecting the media business.
