The final writing assignment will be a continuation of the work you’ve done with Assignment 2 –
the exploratory process and annotated bibliography related to ethical decision–making within
your field or projected profession. In this final phase of the research process, you’ll move from
exploration of a research question to thesis–driven argument.
You concluded Assignment 2 with your tentative thesis. You’ll now have a chance to refine that
thesis, revise your research as needed, and develop your thesis in an argumentative essay.
Because you are now creating a focused argument, the sources you found for the annotated
bibliography may not all transfer to this stage of the process. Some sources may support your
more focused claim, and some will have to be abandoned. I expect your research to be revised
for this essay.
You are not limited to the type of claim you may make (e.g., definition, cause, proposal, position
paper, evaluation; chapters 7–11). You can find guidelines for each of these kinds of arguments
in Read, Reason, Write. My advice is to work your issue out into a single statement, step back,
and then analyze what lies behind your own writing. If it is an argument based on values,
obviously a position paper (claim of values) is the way to go. If you find it is analyzing the root
cause of an issue, the argument about cause is a good choice.
As you draft, follow the strategies for writing arguments in general (Ch. 4), writing the research–
supported argument in particular (Ch. 13), as well as the sample MLA essay, pp. 301–311, and
sample APA essay, pp. 338–346. You may use MLA or APA format for this essay.
Audience: consider your audience to be a well–rounded professor at UH, who is interested in
what you have to say but is also skeptical of points you will be making.
A successful essay will:
• Bring readers into the context of the reading. In what larger conversation is the author
participating? What ethical problems or questions appear in this essay? Why are they
important? What’s at stake? The writer will make have a strong claim (thesis) that is both
contestable – reasonable people might disagree – and predictive – it will set up
expectations for your reader for what they will encounter in the essay.
• Develop your main points around specific rhetorical strategies. Consider how to bring in
ethos and logos in your writing, while always considering the effect, pathos, that you
predict your writing to have upon the reader.
• Support your main points with concrete examples (evidence) from the text. To develop
and support your own points, you will need to include specific examples in the form of
paraphrase or short direct quotations.
2. Express your position, its assumptions, consequences, and any objections to it in a
manner that is logically supported upon facts and advances the argument through
analysis. Your essay should demonstrate an informed stance that has considered the
various sides, arguments, and research of the topic rather than presenting a one–sided
• Uses an introduction, has a thesis, at least 3 key points that support the main claim
(thesis), has a thesis, a concluding paragraph that uses strong rhetoric to reinforce the
logic of the claim to the reader, has a thesis, properly cites sources, and uses correct
direct quotes and paraphrasing to bring in those sources. And has a thesis. (Just 1 thesis
for the essay). Maybe I forgot to mention it: the essay needs a thesis (strong claim).
Please feel free to ask questions, bring your ideas/thoughts/drafts to me for advice or guidance,
and schedule a meeting to go over your draft in detail.
This essay is worth 25% of your grade. The grading of this essay will be the toughest yet. My
expectations are that you have learned from previous essays and will have improved in your
grammar, style, purpose, development, support, and format. Consider this a project and not a
paper to write at the last minute. I will do my best to enable you in this task, but, if you are
worried or struggling, it is upon you to reach out for help. The Writing Center or myself are the
prime places for assistance. Don’t ask for help the day before this is due, there will not be

If you have any questions big or small please do no hesitate to ask me. I really appreciate you doing this for me so thank you very much! 🙂 More research and references could be added if you wish, you dont have to use my notes for information you could use your own.

Case for Discussion:
Frank is an elementary counselor in a district with a large number of Asian immigrants. The district has been struggling to provide appropriate services for Asian students. By chance, the fifth grade has a very high proportion of immigrant students, nearly 40%. Frank receives notification from the school district that he is to oversee the administration of the fifth grade standardized achievement tests. The scores from these tests are important determinants of placement in special programs (both remedial and accelerated) during middle school. Frank soon learns that the tests have no norms for English-as-a-second-language students and questions school district officials about whether this test ought to be used under the circumstances. They respond that he should administer the test and they’ll deal with the results afterwards. Frank decides that he has no choice but to administer the exam as instructed
This is not an APA paper. However, adherence to standard grammar and paragraph organization is required.
