FORMAT:

Use the Outline Template to construct your outline. Type the following information into the boxes provided inside the template. READ THE SAMPLE OUTLINE BEFORE YOU BEGIN WRITING AND COMPARE YOUR OUTLINE TO THE SAMPLE OUTLINE BEFORE YOU SUBMIT IT.

· A title that clearly states the issue as a question. Take your title from the list of approved topics and just copy what it says there word for word.

· An interesting introductory paragraph that clearly introduces the question to be discussed with the point (argument for) and counterpoint (argument against). Do not include your opinion (do not say “I think, I believe, in my opinion.”)

· Briefly list 3 strong arguments FOR the issue (the point). ***Each of the 3 arguments must cite a source.

· Briefly list 3 strong arguments AGAINST the issue (counterpoint). ***Each of the 3 arguments must cite a source.

· Briefly state your opinion on the issue in the closing paragraph.

Writing Style and Format

· Use spell check to catch spelling, punctuation and grammatical mistakes. Then proofread your outline at least one time. Take pride in your work and strive to be mistake-free.

· Do NOT use any quotations. Instead, paraphrase (write in your own words) the ideas or information and cite the source.

· Type in Times New Roman, Size 12 font, 1-inch margins all around.

· At the top of the outline, write your name, course (COH 318), assignment (Point/Counterpoint Outline) and date.

· You are not required to use in-text citations for this assignment.

You are strongly urged to make a half hour appointment with the Writing Center WritingCenter@nu.edu to help you write your essay next week.  Their appointments fill up quickly so reserve a place as soon as you can. 

References

Use at least 4 total sources for your arguments. Each of the 2 arguments for and the 2 arguments against must have at least one source.

At least 2 of the sources must support your point (for). They must come from peer-reviewed journal articles, government reports or textbooks.

At least 2 of the sources must support your counterpoint argument (against). They must come from peer-reviewed journal articles, government reports or textbooks.

Information from the course textbook is allowed, but does not count as one of your four required sources above. Other additional sources are allowed, but they also do not count toward your four required sources. Sources must be recent (e.g., published within the past 5-10 years).
