Argument Essay

OVERVIEW

This argument essay requires that you not only inform, but persuade a reasonable audience to agree with a specific claim that you are making about your issue and to motivate action.  You are making an argument in this paper, but beyond that you are seeking to persuade an audience to act on the argument you make.  This paper will be more challenging because, it requires that you “state your position unequivocally and make it appear reasonable – which requires that you offer evidence and defend against logical objections” (Behrens and Rosen 82).

Library Lingo

Access to Library Collections

This guide presents a variety of information sources, both openly accessible from the web (and selected for authority and credibility) as well as resources limited to Lone Star College users. All are meant as recommendations to start your research but not the only possible sources available, of course.

Off-campus access to Research Databases requires the 14-digit library barcode from the back of your student ID. (Don't have it yet? Request a barcode number online.)                                        collage of database logos
