Expectations for the Argument Synthesis Essay
1. The MLA format will be used, and can be found at
Make sure that the student?s name and page number are in the header of each
page (upper right corner).
2. The student must compose his or her own title; this is an opportunity to
show some creativity and individuality.
3. I expect to see a student?s argument thesis within the first or second
paragraph of the essay. In order to do this, you need to take a stand on an
issue. Some students don?t like to do this, but this time you need to.
4. The essay will discuss a current situation and the importance of the
pressing need to resolve it. I expect the student writer to concede aspects of
the opposition?s arguments or good intentions before she undertakes
counterarguments. The essay will consider at least two separate sources,
located in the Anthology of Readings section of the text. A minimum of two
sources must be used but more may be cited from the Anthology if the student
chooses to do this.
5. The sources must not be the same sources that were cited in your earlier,
Summary or Explanatory synthesis essays, but some new ones. (You are expected
to grow in your knowledge).
6. A minimum of two full, fluently written pages (plus a Works Cited page) is a
sufficient length for this exercise, but more may be developed.
7. Please consult the OWL Purdue University for more detailed instructions on
the Works Cited page, including the use hanging indentation in your format.
