Argumentative Research Paper. The purpose of an argumentative report is seek the truth about a topic or issue and to persuade readers to understand, consider and ultimately, accept your thesis (See Chapter 13). An effective argumentative report establishes the exigency (need or demand) of its subject, presents an ethical and logical argument, and anticipates or refutes any potential opposing arguments that might undermine the thesis. The argumentative report writing must be research driven and rhetorically persuasive in tone. This means you should paraphrase, quote, or summarize information from the articles or chapters that you presented in your Annotated Bibliography with at least three additional sources; however, the main focus of your essay should be your argument and ideas. You will need to consider your field and your audience; the report is directed to an audience of college educated members of a specific related major/technology and must take the characteristics of that field into account. Any argument must also consider audience diversity: different identities, perspectives, specialties and values. A college educated audience of others in your field will expect that your conclusion is compelling, but also accurate and respectful. Ethics requires that your argument be void of biased language or assumptions. Logic requires that your argument be void of logical fallacies.Format You will develop a formal Harvard outline (See page 442). Each entry should contain complete declarative sentences.
