Paper #4 An argumentative paper proposing a specific course of action to solve a social justice issue in Chicago Must be based in Chicago or some other locality First third: establishes that the problem exists (much like Paper #3) Second third: introduces your solution Third third : addresses any counterarguments At least 2000 words (at least eight pages) Sources: at least six, all from outside research – Works Cited pages are required!

Sample Outline:

Annotated Bibliography:

Annotated Bibliography Separate assignment – this does not replace the Works Cited page of your paper! Six sources – not necessarily the same one you will use in the final paper Annotations (100-150 words each) provide an overview of the rhetorical context of the source, a short summary of the piece, and an explanation of how the source will (or will not) help you develop your claim Samples in Handouts; Link to explanatory video in Web Links
