Select a topic for your persuasive research paper, due in Week 5, that argues your personal position on a controversial topic that you think is worthy of public debate. The topic must be current, part of an ongoing debate, or a relatively new, unknown topic that you think deserves more attention. You may write on any topic you choose but must provide arguments on both sides of the issue as you build your persuasive argument, and the paper should be 1400 to 1750 words, so you should not choose something too broad.

- The summary/analysis should include the following elements: a one to three sentence summary of the article and one to three sentence analysis of the article that states its usefulness to your final paper.
