TOPIC:ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES OF VACCINES • Within your essay, use at least two sources, i.e., in-text citations, but you may use all six. Although you are pulling information from outside sources, the majority (90%) must be your own writing. ALL sources must come from the TCC databases for this paper and be documented in MLA format, including a proper header, page numbers, and a properly formatted Works Cited page. There is a lot of flexibility regarding which step of the Rogerian Argument to enhance with the source material. Use your judgment about where it will fit best to enhance your chances of striking a compromise position. For this assignment you will use the Rogerian format to present a summary of an issue, to present an objective and unbiased examination of two opposing views, to identify common ground between the two sides and to propose (a) compromise(s). Your essay should be at least four paragraphs long, approximately 900 – 1100 words): Essay Organization: 1. Generically introduce the topic and show how it affects those on both sides of the argument. This should be done in such a way that DOES NOT show bias toward your position regarding the problem or issue. This section explains or depicts the issue while making sure not to influence the audience or reveal your position. Both sides in the argument should agree with this section of the essay. (1 paragraph) 2. Identify one point of view and explain it empathetically. This section of the essay should show that you understand this position and can present it in such a way that does not attack or refute your audience’s point of view. This section also shows in which contexts and under what conditions elements of the opponent’s position may be valid. This part of the essay should show the opposition does have valid points! Remember, this part of the Rogerian Argument is absolutely critical! (1 paragraph) 3. Now identify the OTHER point of view and explain it empathetically. Again, this section of the essay should show that you understand this position and can present it in such a way that does not attack or refute your audience’s point of view. This section also shows in which contexts and under what conditions elements of the opponent’s position may be valid. This part of the essay should show the opposition does have valid points! Remember, this part of the Rogerian Argument is absolutely critical! (1 paragraph) Page 3 of 4 4. Identify common ground between the two positions and propose a compromise. This section shows that the two positions complement each other and that each supplies what the other lacks. In other words, try to reach a compromise that might solve the problem to the satisfaction of both sides. (1 paragraph)
