A GUIDE FOR WRITING ASSIGNMENTS BY Paul N. TENNASSEE
This guide was developed to simplify how students in the courses I teach can
write papers for Midterm and Final Examinations. This Guide is also used in each
class for the discussion of current issues. At the beginning of each class, I
usually ask students what are the issues locally, nationally and globally. So in
each class you have an opportunity to use this guide and become good at it.
STEP 1: Identify the issue and frame the questions that addresses the
Even though there may be many questions regarding an issue, my advice
is that you choose one question that you think is the central question. Be
clear about this.
STEP 2: Background Information regarding the issue. There must be
references for this (APA)
STEP 3: Arguments For. In your research, you will discover that think
tanks, media, academics, non-profits, institutions and authors have made
arguments in support of a particular policy and/or laws related to an issue
you are addressing and the central question you are asking. There must
be references for this (APA).
STEP 4: Arguments Against. There is no issue that folks do not have
contending arguments. So, discuss those arguments. There must be
references for this (APA)
STEP 5: Contradictions and /or Inconsistencies. “the act of saying
something that is opposite or very different in meaning to something else:
a difference or disagreement between two things which means that…”
Think through, if in the arguments for and against, there are
contradictions. Discuss them. There is no need for references in this
section of your work. Here is where you display your analytical abilities.
STEP 6: Personal Opinion. Here is where you express your personal view
based on your worldview and/or values. There is no need for references in
this section of your work.
STEP 7: Policy Recommendation. Finally, you re-read your paper and
advance one or more recommendation(s) that become the basis for a policy
and/or law(s) you wish to be implemented, so that the issue you discussed
can be effectively addressed. There may be an existing law or policy that you
agree with or a policy or law you wish to see modified or amended. Perhaps,
you wish to recommend a new policy and/or law. Remember, whatever you
do must be coherent with the previous discussions in your paper.
OVERALL STEP: Do Subheads and write short sentences. It is like a road
map. It will assist you to obtain coherence in your paper. It will keep your train
on the rails.
