Your assignment is to argue a topic of your choosing. Select a topic that is of great interest to you, perhaps a current or controversial issue.
Keep in mind that a research assignment requires you to present:
Remember that argument involves persuading an audience to think or act in a specific way. Argument is fueled by controversy, so knowing how to convince an audience to accept your perspective is your goal. Conduct research on your own on one issue by describing and arguing. In addition, analyze and critique your topic, and offer possible solutions to end the issue/problem.
