Please choose an issue you feel strongly about on a topic that is different from the one you already wrote about in Assignment #2. Present an argument that shows that you have considered your audience members, identified their prejudices and viewpoints on the topic, made claims or appeals that respond to their viewpoints, and presented your own case fairly and persuasively. You will be graded on the soundness of your logic, your ability to choose and evaluate reputable sources, your management and documentation of those sources within the text, and the appropriateness of the tone and style of your argument. Before the paper is due, you will submit a working bibliography and an abstract of your argument.
This paper should be seven to eight pages in length (2000 to 2400 words approximately). You should have six to eight sources and an interview that you must conduct yourself either face-to-face or via email, phone, or snail mail.

The interview should be with a person who has some authority in the field that your research paper is based on. Please include the material from the interview in your paper.
Please double space and use a Times New Roman 12 font. MLA formatting is required for all papers. There is a rubric of grading criteria provided on the webpage for assignment #3.
