Issue Review Paper

Issue Review Papers should not be approached like an essay for English class.Rather answer each question in order.

Make sure you fully address each question, but be concise.

    1. (5 pts) In a sentence, summarize one possible position on the issue. (Claim)
    2. (18 pts) List three facts or ideas (Evidence) from the readings that support the position (cite readings).Explain your reasoning of how the evidence supports the position (Reasoning).
    3. (4 pts) What are the implications of this position? In other words, if this position were enacted, what could happen next?
  2. (27 pts total) Conflicting position on issue

At least two supports must come from articles.

Ex. Website reference:

In general, questions 2 and 3 will take the form of a pro-position (ex. “Yes, the US should build more nuclear power plants) and a con-position (ex. “No, the US should not build more nuclear power plants).However, other more nuanced positions are possible and encouraged (ex. “The US should promote all forms of non-fossil fuel energy production, including nuclear, solar, and wind.)Supports/evidence for questions 2 and 3 should come from the readings.Supports for question 6 may come from the in-class readings, external readings, or personal experience.
