Argumentative research paper.


You will submit a formal outline for your argumentative research paper. To help you think about outlines, you will read one of two readings, answer a critical question about it, and then apply the author’s ideas to how you will plan your paper. Finally, you will review three sample outlines and decide which to use for your paper.

First, for this discussion, choose one of the following two readings and answer the associated question (100+ words). Be sure to quote and cite from the reading in your response:

  • Option 1 – Tannen, D. (2014). Sex, lies and conversation: Why is it so hard for men and women to talk to each other? In G.H. Muller (Ed.), The McGraw-Hill Reader: Issues Across the Disciplines pp. 117-122. New York. NY: McGraw-Hill.
    • p. 122, “Writing,” Question 3: Writing an Argument: Tannen states, “Once the problem is understood, improvement comes naturally.” Argue for or against this position.
  • Option 2 – Gekernter, D. (2014). Unplugged: The myth of computers in the classroom. In G.H. Muller (Ed.), The McGraw-Hill Reader: Issues Across the Disciplines pp. 212-215. New York. NY: McGraw-Hill.
    • p. 214, “Rhetoric,” Question 3; The essay has a three-part structure, each section divided by space. How would you characterize the purpose of each section? How does the author use transitions to move from one section to the next?

Second, consider how the author’s argument applies to your writing. What points can you apply, especially when it comes to planning or outlining your paper? (100+ words)

Third, review the three versions of outlines for writing. Explore the merits of each type of outline. Identify which version you believe would most support your intended major writing assignment for this course. (100+ words)

Case Brief

Palsgraf v. Long Island Railroad Co.

Purpose: To be able to identify jurisdictional issue in legal cases and conduct an analysis of case fact patterns by preparing a case brief.

When briefing a case, your goal is to reduce the information from the case into a format that will provide you with a helpful reference in class and for review. Most importantly, by “briefing” a case, you will grasp the problem the court faced (the issue); the relevant law the court used to solve it (the rule); how the court applied the rule to the facts (the application or “analysis/reason”); and the outcome (the conclusion/decision). You will then be ready to not only discuss the case, but to compare and contrast it to other cases involving a similar issue.

Before attempting to “brief” a case, read the case at least once.

Instructions: Read the extended version of this case (M33_Homework Brief 3_Case_Palsgraf v. Long Island R. Co._Chapter 8-1.pdf). Prepare a case outline with the following components.

  1. Citation: Give the full citation for the case, including the name of the case, the date it was decided, and the court that decided it.
  2. Facts: Briefly indicate(a) reasons for the lawsuit; (b) the identity and arguments of the plaintiff(s) and defendant(s), respectively (c); and the lower court’s decision (if appropriate).
  3. Issue: Concisely phrase, the essential issues before the court. It is possible to find more than one issues involved. There may have two or even more issues to include.
  4. Decision: Indicate the courts answers to the issue. You may be able to use “yes” or “no,” in indicating the courts answer to the issue.

Tip: There are several Latin terms used in this legal case. The link below may be helpful in defining any Latin legal terms found in this case.
