POSITION PAPER
TOPIC: THE ORIGINAL CONSTITUTION WAS/WAS NOT A DOCUMENT PROMOTING JUSTICE AND FAIRNESS.
Students
must
write
a
position
paper
focusing
on
a
controversial
and/or
important
topic
related
to
U.S.
history
to the
Civil
War.
The
paper
should
be
between
3-5
pages
(double-spaced;
12-font)
and
should
include
the
following:
1)
A
clear
statement
of
your
position
on
the
chosen
topic.
Example:
“I
believe
that
stem
research
is
wrong….”
2)
At
least
four
strong
logical
arguments/facts
supporting
your
position.
Example:
“…I
based
my
position

four
factors.

is

….
The
second
is

3)

the
narrative

4)
Clear
references
(either
endnotes
or
contextual
citations)
for
all
information
or
data
that
is
not
considered
public
knowledge.
Example:
“Baba
Zak
A.
Kondo
argues
convincingly
that
the
American
educational
system
is
designed
to
miseducate
rather
than
educate
Black
students
(The
Black
Student’s
Guide
to
Positive
Education
[1987],
pg.
4).”
5)
A
clear
and
concise
introduction
and
conclusion.
Example
[Introduction]:
“In
the
past
few
decades,
we
have
witnessed
a
growing
interest
in
the
efforts
of
Nat
Turner
and
other
revolutionaries
to
use
force
to
end
slavery
in
the
U.S.
The
tactics
of
these
revolutionaries
have
fostered
a
debate
on
the
use
of
force
as
an
instrument
for
social
change.
I
contend
that
force
was
needed
to
end
slavery
in
the
U.S.
and
that
violence
played
an
important
role
in
ending
slavery
prior
to
the
Civil
War…”
6)
Logical
and
reasonable
arguments
and
discussion.
Notes:
Organize
your
arguments
from
strongest
to
weakest;
cite
examples
that
support
your
points
and
demonstrate
depth
in
your
reasoning.
7)
Utilization
of
at
least
six
sources.
(3
must
be
books
and/or
articles;
the
others
can
be

electronic
sources.
Notes:
The
position
paper
is
a
much
a
research
project
as
it
is
a
personal
view.
You
must
utilize
the
research
of
others
to
support
and
augment
your
position.
There
are
no
exceptions
to
the
rule.

8)
Listings
of
complete
citations
of
all
book,
articles
and
other
sources
consulted.

your
sources
at
the
end
of
your
paper
in
either
an
established

(Turabian,
APA…)
or
in
a
format that
you
develop.
Be
sure

include
all
vital
reference
information
so
