What is Essay #4 as Opposed to a Research Paper?
A research paper is an essay that uses outside sources (i.e. books, magazine articles, Internet articles, etc.) as supporting evidence (which will be placed in the body of the paper) for the essay’s thesis. Instead of analyzing a piece of writing such as “Better Schools Won’t Fix America” by Nick Hanauer you will be writing an argument about a specific topic, and your outside sources will be used to support your thesis.

In short, your research paper will be an argumentative paper. You will take a position on some sort of controversial topic, and your position will be the basis for your thesis. Naturally, you will look for and research outside sources to build upon supporting body paragraphs to back up your thesis.

Your draft of Essay #4, which is due Tuesday, 11/3, is not a research paper. The actual research paper will be due at the end of the semester. This assignment is only a four-paragraph paper that will explain the topic of your paper, the controversy surrounding this topic, and what your stance on this topic will be. In other words, your stance will become the basis of your thesis statement in your research paper. I will lay out what you will actually write in your proposal towards the end of this prompt.

Choosing a Topic
You will be able to choose your topic from the list that I have provided. Yes, this is the same list from the pdf posted in the Week 9 module. Please feel free to choose One. However, you only have to write about your first choice for this assignment. Unfortunately, because of time constraints, you cannot choose your own topic; that is why you should choose one from the list below.

What You Are Going to Write in Your Draft of Essay #4
The good news is that you do not have to write a traditional essay with an introduction, a body, and so forth. However, the main point of this assignment is show me that you have strong understanding of your chosen topic for your research paper. Essentially, you will only have to write four paragraphs.

For the first paragraph, you must explain what the topic is. For instance, if you are going to write about designer babies, you need to explain what they are. For example, you will have to explain how parents can design their babies using technologies such as CRISPR Cas9 and Pre-implantation Genetic Diagnostic (PGD). Because you will be doing some preliminary research, you should quote from an outside source (an online article from the database CQ Researcher, for example).

The second paragraph should the “pro” side of the issue. Let’s look at designer babies again. This means that you need to explain how and why certain people believe we can eradicate genetically inherited diseases using CRISPR Cas9. Because the second paragraph is all about the “pro” side, the

third paragraph must explain the “con” side of the topic (e.g. the potential negative side effects that can manifest in designer babies).

The fourth and final paragraph will have to explain your position on this topic (e.g. do you believe that eradicating genetically inherited diseases outweigh any cons such as a new class division between those who are “natural” and those who are genetically modified or designed?). What position are you going to argue for and why? Yes, you can refer to yourself for this assignment.

I will provide a sample paper that explains the topic of vaccines and whether getting rid of personal and religious exemptions is a good idea. You can use that sample paper as a model (Please see: 101 Sample Research Paper Doping.pdf Attached)
