Stance Essay Revision

Revision Due Week 9 and worth 180 points

Now that you have completed a first draft of this essay, it is time to carefully review the feedback your instructor has provided. Then, make revisions and submit a final draft of your stance essay. Remember, a stance essay takes a position on a topic and argues and supports that position with evidence. Consider your topic: What possible positions/arguments are there? What position resonates with you? (Which position do you believe is correct?) What are your main points? What are the counterpoints? Are you ready to dispute them? Do you have enough evidence to effectively support your argument?

For the stance essay, your personal voice (your perspective) should come through. This is just like assignment 1, except you should maintain a formal tone. And just like assignment 2, you will need to support your points with credible sources. You’re ready to take a position on the topic you have been writing about!
