Students are required to prepare a position paper on any topic presented in this course. The purpose of a position paper is to generate support on an issue. Your target audience may be a community resource, legislative, or other advocacy group to whom you would like to gain their support on an issue. Your paper will describe a position on an issue and the rational for that position.
The position paper is based on facts that provide a solid foundation for your argument. In the position paper you should:
Use evidence to support your position, such as statistical evidence or dates and events.
Validate your position with authoritative references or primary source quotations.
Examine the strengths and weaknesses of your position.
Evaluate possible solutions and suggest courses of action.
Consider feasibility, cost-effectiveness and political/social climate when evaluating possible solutions and courses of action.
Choose an issue where there is a clear division of opinion and which is arguable with facts and inductive reasoning. You may choose an issue on which you have already formed an opinion. However, in writing about this issue you must examine your opinion of the issue critically. Prior to writing your position paper, define and limit your issue carefully. These issues are complex with multiple solutions. Narrow the topic of your position paper to something that is manageable. Research your issue thoroughly, consulting experts and obtaining primary documents.
Instructions: Students must utilize a minimum of three academic or governmental reports. This paper should be a minimum of 4 pages in length (does not include references) in proper APA format
