Leah: Like always I woke up to the screams of my alarm. It was a brisk morning of March; the Vermont air was crispy and refreshing as I made my way out to door and off to work. Unbeknown this day changed my life and shaped my future.

              The year 2020 affected everyone in many ways from death to heartbreak. I was a part time nanny at the time and the night before going into work on day in March it was all over the news that the country and state were going under quarantine. At the time I didn’t understand what this fully meant and what was to follow. I was given the hard choice of leaving the job or living with them full time and at my age, recently dropping out of beauty school, I couldn’t give up my freedom to be with a family that wasn’t my own. This was the day I made the hard decision to leave the position and kids I had become so close to.

Months filled with ups and downs, desperate choices and eventually finding my own inner peace. I had become unemployed, was broke living at home not sure what to do next. As summer continued as the shut down lengthened, sickness spread and depression rising and struggling with medication once again, my life felt like it was going in a hopeless direction. I spent a week seeking mental help at a facility trying to better my life, got left by my partner after four years, and ran away to Arizona for a short bit.  After the turns in life and struggle with medications I turned to seek other ways of life. After three years I decided to pursue my degree in holistic health to better understand the natural ways of living life and to become a happier healthier person.

 

Melissa : June of 2015 I was throwing my cap in the air and thought I had it all figured out. This was graduation for my class at Mill River High School. I had enjoyed driving anything, going to car shows, and working on cars with my family since I was young. Now the next step to this passion was to attend Vermont Tech majoring in Automotive Technology. Little did I know at the time, a semester later I would be back home, disappointed, unsure of myself, and trying to figure out what I wanted to do with the rest of my life. I had decided at 5 foot 4 inches tall and 95 pounds that the mechanic career path wasn’t for me. That’s where my current journey began.

After returning home from college in the middle of a frigid winter in 2016, I started by going back to my high school job full time at McDonald’s. This discouraged me as most of my classmates were off at college, living their best life while I was working for a fast food chain. Even my best friend laughed at me when I called her to tell her I was coming home. I found the comfort of friends that worked there overwhelming, and helped me through the anxiety of what was next. My parents encouraged me to take classes at CCV toward the CPT program, and work for a temp agency at their place of work. When this suggestion first came up, I thought to myself “I told myself all those years growing up there would be no way I would work there, especially in a factory setting”. I jumped at the chance because who wouldn’t want to make $15 an hour at 19 years old? I completed the program, and found myself applying to the company a year later where I have been full time ever since. 

With my current role interacting with people and helping them develop I decided why not develop myself into something better? So here I am, working on myself and committing to making a change in my life as well as others.

Assignment Guide: The Argumentative Essay Assignment Prompt For this assignment, you will be writing an argumentative essay–a piece of Essay

Assignment Guide: The Argumentative Essay
Assignment Prompt

For this assignment, you will be writing an argumentative essay–a piece of writing that requires you to take a position, what rhetoricians call a claim, on a debatable topic (that is, a topic with more than one side). Specifically, you will present a policy claim where you argue for or against a change of some kind. This claim should be supported by reliable, credible evidence (i.e. scholarly sources) backed by research. In addition to presenting your claim, you will also need to acknowledge the other side, which is called the counterargument. For this assignment, you may choose your own topic. Hint: browse topics that interest you in “Opposing Viewpoints” our article database accessed through the banner.

Assignment-Specific Requirements:

Length: This assignment should be at least 750 words.

Thesis: Underline your thesis statement or the main claim of your letter.

Supporting Points: Plan to develop at least three strong supporting points to accompany your thesis and at least one counter. Each supporting point should equate to at least one body paragraph.

Sources Needed: The essay should integrate at least 4 reliable and credible sources, to help prove the argument for or against a policy change. Be sure to use MLA guidelines for all in-text and Works Cited citations.

While we encourage you to acquire sources from Gale’s Opposing Viewpoints, you may access credible, scholarly sources from other resources. Tertiary sources, such as online encyclopedias, dictionaries and Wikipedia, are not scholarly sources, and should not be cited within your work; however, they may offer helpful foundational information as you develop your understanding of an issue. (For more information, please review Berkley University’s resource on scholarly and popular sources: “Evaluating Resources.”)

Page Formatting: See Appendix C – Formatting and Submitting Your Work. Please underline your thesis statement.

MLA Requirements: See Formatting your Essay: MLA 8th Edition

Rhetorical Mode

When we talk about argument writing, we are not talking about an emotional and heated argument, but one that is neutral in tone and uses evidence/facts to convince your readers of a claim. Your argument is your claim, or the point that you want to convince readers of–in this instance, you will be making a claim for or against a policy change. Because everything depends on the strength of this claim (and the supporting points that you use to scaffold it), the organizational structure of an argumentative essay is incredibly important to its success. Every idea, topic sentence, paragraph, and page should always align with your argumentative claim. Be sure that you use scholarly evidence purposefully to support the claim you are making and do not veer too much into exploratory or informative writing, which is trickier than it sounds. You’ll also need to think carefully about how to integrate researched evidence with your own ideas, to build a fully developed and supported stance throughout. Finally, you will want to acknowledge the counterargument in the body paragraphs, even if you cannot refute it entirely.

Rhetorical Considerations

Purpose:

Remember that this is an argumentative essay: that means your goal is to prove your claim for or against a policy change to readers. This piece of writing should be aimed at convincing readers through the inclusion of a strong argumentative thesis, specific supporting points, acknowledgement of the counter, and carefully chosen scholarly evidence.

Audience:

The argumentative essay is written for someone else–a community of readers that is most impacted by the policy you are proposing to change (or keep the same). In this instance, you are writing to argue for or against a change (and thus convince readers that a change should or should not occur). Keep this audience in mind by angling everything in your essay towards a strong argument that can appeal to a more general population.

Form:

This is a formal writing project, written in third-person, relying on strong organizational strategies, integrating researched evidence (the academic sources you choose), and following MLA formatting guidelines.

Choosing a Topic for Your Argumentative Essay

Selecting the right topic is an important step in ensuring your success in writing a Argumentative essay. You’ll want to choose a topic that has the following features:

Of interest to you
Relevant
Current
Debatable
Well-researched
Narrow in scope
Academic or “scholarly” in nature
Topics to avoid, as they are either too complex to argue in a single essay, or not considered appropriate for an academic or scholarly essay, are as follows:

The death penalty
Euthanasia or self-assisted death
Abortion
The (il)legalization of drugs (e.g. marijuana)
Religion or religious readings (e.g. existence of a higher order/being, or life after death)
Gun rights/rules
Global warming
Please do not select one of the above 7 topics, as your essay may be returned without grading, and you will be asked to rewrite it.
