Essay Workbook
INSTRUCTIONS
 
This
 
Essay 
 
Workbook 
 
is
 
for
 
your
 
use
 
to
 
assist
 
you
 
as
 
you
 
endeavor
 
in
 
the
 
process
 
of 
 
writing
 
a
 
winning
 
argument.
 
It
 
should
 
be
 
used
 
as
 
a
 
guide
 
in
 
that
 
it
 
should
 
dictate
 
only
 
the
 
necessary
 
aspects
 
of 
 
your
 
argument
 
while
 
the
 
depth
 
and
 
breadth
 
of 
 
your
 
argument
 
is
 
entirely
 
your
 
decision.
 
However,
 
YOU
 
SHOULD
 
NOT
 
BEGIN
 
WRITING
 
UNTIL
 
AFTER
 
YOU
 
HAVE
 
COMPLETED
 
THIS
 
WORKBOOK.
 
This
 
way,
 
your
 
will
 
keep
 
yourself 
 
(and
 
your
 
argument)
 
on
task
 
throughout
 
the
 
entire
 
writing
 
process.
 
Lastly,
 
while
 
some
 
abuse
 
to
 
this
 
workbook
 
is
 
bound
 
to
 
occur
 
during
 
the
 
course
 
of 
 
writing
 
of 
 
your
 
essay,
 
it
 
is
 
important
 
to
 
note
 
that
 
printouts
 
of 
 
this
 
workbook
 
must
 
be
 
clear
 
and
 
crisp;
 
otherwise,
 
if 
 
the
 
printer
 
ink
 
is
 
significantly
 
faded
 
and/or
 
messy
 
or
 
the
 
fonts
 
unclear
 
(both
 
usually
 
due
 
to
 
low
 
ink
 
in
 
an
 
inkjet
 
printer),
 
you
 
will
 
not
 
receive
 
credit.
 
This
 
also
 
applies
 
to
 
illegible
 
penmanship—if 
 
it
 
can’t
 
be
 
read,
 
it
 
will
 
likewise
 
receive
 
no
 
credit.
 
Consider
 
using
 
a
 
laser
 
printer
 
to
 
print
 
out
 
this
 
workbook.
 
Timeline
 
With
 
a
 
calendar
 
at
 
hand,
 
enter
 
the
 
dates
 
(all
 
of 
 
them)
 
into
 
the
 
timeline
 
to
 
the
 
left
 
to
 
plan
 
the
 
schedule
 
of 
 
your
 
research
 
and
 
writing.
 
While
 
this
 
schedule
 
is
 
standard
 
for
 
college
level
 
students,
 
enter
 
only
 
those
 
dates
 
that
 
are
 
relevant
 
to
 
the
 
scope
 
of 
 
your
 
particular
 
endeavor—don’t
 
feel
 
compelled
 
to
 
inflate
 
your
 
schedule.
 
On
 
the
 
other
 
hand,
 
short
cutting
 
will,
 
indeed,
 
produce
 
an
 
inferior
 
argument.
 
You
 
might
 
want
 
to
 
use
 
pencil
 
so
 
that
 
you
 
can
 
make
 
adjustments
 
as
 
they
 
become
 
necessary
 
throughout
 
the
 
process.
 
However,
 
adjustments
 
should
 
be
 
made
 
only
 
due
 
to
 
extraordinary,
 
unforeseen
 
circumstances
 
that
 
arise.
 
In
 
other
 
words,
 
stick 
 
to
 
your 
 
original 
 
 plan
 
unless
 
a
 
change
 
is
 
absolutely 
 
necessary!

What will be thefocus of yourargument? If nothingcomes to mindimmediately, you’llneed to spend sometime thinking aboutthe assignment untilyou’re able toarticulate an interest.Conducting somepreliminary researchalmost always curesa lack of interest.
Supporting evidence
This
 
is
 
when
 
you
 
conduct
 
your
 
research.
 
For
 
each
 
of 
 
your
 
major
 
points,
 
you’ll
 
need
 
to
 
discover
 
evidence
 
to
 
support
 
them.
 
Use
 
the
 
cells
 
below
 
to
 
enter
 
citation
 
information,
 
such
 
as
 
the
 
title
 
of 
 
the
 
book
 
in
 
which
 
you
 
found
 
the
 
evidence,
 
the
 
book’s
 
library
 
location,
 
perhaps
 
a
 
URL—any
 
type
 
of 
 
information
 
that’s
 
meaningful
 
to
 
you.
 
Evidence whichsupports the counter-argument
Like
 
the
 
list
 
of 
 
supporting
 
evidence,
 
use
 
the
 
cells
 
below
 
to
 
enter
 
whatever
 
meaningful
 
information
 
helps
 
to
 
illuminate
 
where
 
you
 
found
 
the
 
counter
argument.
 
In the firstcolumn to theright, refine yourinterests bylisting up to fourmajor points thatyou believe areworthy ofexploration.Your argumentmust possess nofewer than threeand no greaterthan four majorpoints.Then, in the nextcolumn, list themajor counterarguments toeach point.
