Write an argumentative essay (no less than six pages in length) that addresses the causes of and solutions for overcoming bullying.

The Module 2 SLP should be completed before you begin this Module 2 Case.

After reading Marice Richter’s essay, “Boy Scouts of America Votes to End Century-old Ban on Gay Scouts,” write a well-organized and well-supported essay, in which you state whether you are for or against the Boys Scouts of America allowing gay scouts as members, and include three to five reasons to support your point of view.

A well-organized essay has a beginning, middle, and an end. The beginning, or introduction, should include an opening sentence to grab your reader’s attention. Follow the opening sentence with a brief background on the topic or situation. In this case, it would be a brief background on the issue Boy Scout of America faced. The last sentence of the introduction is the thesis statement. The thesis states the main point of the essay, which in this case, would be a statement affirming your point of view as to whether or not the Boys Scouts of America should allow gay scouts as members.

A well-supported essay includes supporting points, details, and examples. For this essay, you must decide the best way to organize the body of the paper. Will you have a paragraph for each supporting reason? Will you divide the body of your paper into three paragraphs, one for each point? In any case, each body paragraph must support (explain) your reasoning (rationale) using specific details. Each body paragraph must have a topic sentence that states the main point of the paragraph.

The conclusion typically summarizes the main points of the essay and/or closes with a lasting impression that connects the reader to their world. Should the Boy Scouts of America amend the current decision?

Be sure to proofread your essay and edit for proper grammar, punctuation, diction (word choice), and spelling, as errors in sentence skills will lower a final grade. A grade will be determined based on the Module 2 Case expectations and the Trident University General Education rubric for English.

Papers must be double-spaced in Times or Times New Roman font (12 cpi) with standard one-inch margins.

The first person “I” is not used in a formal essay, nor is the passive “you.” In place of “you,” “one” may be used.

No secondary sources are to be used in the process of writing this first paper; it is to be entirely written based on one’s point of view and supported with body points and details.

After reflecting on “Surrogacy: Wombs For Rent,” “‘Google Baby’ Follows Birth Outsources to India,” and “Her Body, My Baby,” write a well-organized and well-supported essay either for or against surrogacy.

A well-organized essay has a beginning, middle, and an end. The beginning, or introduction, should include an opening sentence to grab your reader’s attention. Follow the opening sentence with a brief background on the topic or situation. In this case, it would be brief summary on surrogacy. The last sentence of the introduction is the thesis statement. The thesis states the main point of the essay, which in this case, would be a statement affirming the paper’s stance for or against surrogacy.

A well-supported essay includes supporting points, details, and examples. For this essay, you must decide the best way to organize the body of the paper. Will you have one or two paragraphs for each supporting point? Will you divide the body of your paper into three or more paragraphs, one for each point? In any case, each body paragraph must support (explain) your reasoning (rationale) using specific details. Each body paragraph must have a topic sentence that states the main point of the paragraph, which in this case would be each supporting point.

This essay must include no less than SIX citations from the required readings of Module 3 on surrogacy. Citations are to be a combination of direct quotations and paraphrased quotations with or without the author’s name. Quoting from the videos above may be only in addition to your two selected sources and field source.

The conclusion typically summarizes the main points of the essay and/or closes with a lasting impression that connects the reader to their world. In this case, where do we go from here?

The essay must also include a Reference List that includes the readings quoted in the essay.

APA Citations

A citation is simply information from another source that has been incorporated into your own writing. In most cases, we include citations to support our point of view or argument. On occasion, we may refute another’s point of view or argument and include a citation to further support the point of view or argument of our own essay. In all cases, citations must be properly cited within our writing (APA format) and with a Reference List at the end of the essay.

Citations may be direct (word for word) or paraphrased (reworded by you). They may or may not include the author’s name in your own writing and must include the year. The following is a quote from an article by Tamara J. Erickson from Businessweek.com:

“They’ve come of age in the world of Google, where almost any fact can be found in seconds. Most will never have the mental store of knowledge that their grandparents gained through education.”

Direct quote using the author’s name in the sentence:

In her article on Gen Y, Tamara J. Erickson notes, “most will never have the mental store of knowledge that their grandparents gained through education” (2011).

Direct quote without using the author’s name in the sentence:

Critics contend that Gen Y is apathetic and lazy – that “most will never have the mental store of knowledge that their grandparents gained through education” (Erickson, 2011).

Paraphrased quote using the author’s name in the sentence:

Critics contend that Gen Y is apathetic and lazy, and as Tamara J. Erickson suggests, will never possess the storage of mental knowledge that their grandparents attained through study (2011).

Paraphrased quote without using the author’s name in the sentence:

Critics contend that Gen Y is apathetic and lazy and will never possess the storage of mental knowledge that their grandparents attained through study (Erickson, 2011).

Case Assignment

Note: The Module 4 SLP should be completed before you begin this Module 4 Case.

Bullying is a pervasive epidemic impacting our society today, sometimes with tragic results, including diminished self-esteem, poor academic performance, and in some cases, school shootings and suicide. Beyond the schoolyard, bullying lurks within social circles, in the workplace, and beyond.

This essay is to address the causes of (and solutions to overcome) this recent epidemic. To do so, students may wish to identify three causes and three solutions. Be mindful that causes may also very well be solutions. For example, lack of good parenting may be a cause of bullying while quality parenting could certainly be a solution. The same might be said for media and technology or perhaps education/educators.

A well-organized essay has a beginning, middle, and an end. The beginning, or introduction, should include an opening sentence to grab your reader’s attention. Follow the opening sentence with a brief background on the topic or situation. In this case, it would be brief summary on the recent epidemic of bullying. The last sentence of the introduction is the thesis statement. The thesis states the main point of the essay, which in this case, would be a statement affirming the paper’s focus on the causes of and solutions for overcoming bullying.

A well-supported essay includes supporting points, details, and examples. For this essay, you must decide the best way to organize the body of the paper. Will you have six body paragraphs – three for each cause and three for each solution? Will you address causes first and then follow with solutions or will you provide a solution after a discussion of each cause? In any case, each body paragraph must support (explain) your reasoning (rationale) using specific details. Each body paragraph must have a topic sentence that states the main point of the paragraph, which in this case would be each supporting point.

This essay must include at least 8 citations in APA Style from no less than 3 credible sources. Citations are to be a combination of direct quotations and paraphrased quotations with or without the author’s name. Credible sources may be from books, magazines, newspapers, online journals, or web pages, though in every case, the source must be credible and reliable.

The conclusion typically summarizes the main points of the essay and/or closes with a lasting impression that connects the reader to their world. In this case, where do we go from here? What can your reader do to address this issue?

The essay must also include a Reference List that includes the readings quoted in the essay.

Be sure to proofread your essay and edit for proper grammar, punctuation, diction (word choice), and spelling, as errors in sentence skills will lower a final grade. A grade will be determined based on the Module 4 Case expectations and the Trident University General Education rubric for English.

Papers must be double-spaced in Times or Times New Roman font (12 cpi) with standard one-inch margins.

The first person “I” is not used in a formal essay, nor is the passive “you.” In place of “you,” “one” may be used.
