Synthesis Essay Style Sheet
Basic formatting requirements:
The essay must be typed or word processed.
The essay must be double-spaced, have 1 inch margins all around, and be done in a 12 point (or
12 character per inch [CPI]) font, and be left justified so that the right margin is “ragged.”
Pages should be numbered in a header at the top of each page on the right margin ½ inch from
the top of the page.
The completed essay should be 8 or 9 thoroughly crafted and developed paragraphs.
You do not need a cover sheet on this paper; you do not need a title for this essay. Your name
and course information should be single-spaced in the upper right-hand corner of the first page.
Spelling and grammar count. Make certain that all of the spelling and grammatical errors—
especially informal voice—are fixed before you submit the final draft.
Prewriting and early composing rhetorical decisions:
Audience: your audience for this paper is a peer, someone in the class or someone near your age
and experience. However, you will be dealing with material, advertisements or stereotypes with
which the reader may be unfamiliar and you need to be very careful about making assumptions
about what your reader knows that may cause the reader to lose your point. It’s sometimes
helpful to consider the peer to whom you are writer as being “slightly dense.”
This doesn’t mean that you condescend to the reader, treating them like they’re stupid. Just make
certain that you give them all of the details necessary for them to know what you are writing
Purpose: this essay asks you to look critically, rhetorically, analytically at two opposing ideas
and then to respond in a “new” and inventive way, to synthesize an approach given the
attitudes of the articles to which you respond.
Voice: Your essay should be in formal academic third-person voice. As some of you discovered
with the first paper, it will be easier on you in the long run if you actually compose the essay this
way rather than trying to translate it after it’s written.
If you have trouble with this, you should make extra effort to attend at least one consultation
night to let me go through this with you.
The following are the specific things that I am looking for in this essay. Check over this list
Your first paragraph should introduce the general topic of your paper, define any terms with
which your reader might not be familiar, and very briefly summarize the points of view of the
two perspectives you are considering. Do not put a thesis in this paragraph.
You then will spend two paragraphs analyzing the rhetorical devices of the supporters and
dissenters of the two opposing viewpoints. The following questions might be helpful:
People who support or disagree with the perspective discuss it in what specific ways? Do
they frequently appeal to emotion (pathos)? To Logic (logos)? To expertise, authority,
or statistical data (ethos)? What do the way these arguments are framed and discussed
tell you about the thinking of these people?
Supporters or dissenters frequently argue their perspectives for what specific purpose?
To convince others? To tear down the arguments from the opposing side? How are these
purposes framed? What kind of language is frequently used?
For what audience are the perspectives addressed? How did you make this inference?
Again, what is it in the texts that leads you to your conclusion about the audience to
which the perspective is directed?
What is the bias of the author? What is included and what is excluded from the
presentation of information in the articles or arguments made in dissent or support of the
The next paragraph, the fourth paragraph, will be general and will return to the topic in
general and will end with your major claim or thesis. While it must be a completely
developed paragraph, it may be somewhat shorter than paragraphs that precede or follow it.
The next section, at least three and perhaps four paragraphs, will be your synthesis/analysis
section. Ask yourself:
What solutions do supporters or those who oppose the perspective omit? Why? What do
these omissions indicate about the bias and the purpose of the two perspectives you are
Given the two opposing positions and the perspectives they represent, what other ways
might a person look at this problem?
Do any “solutions” present themselves? Are they things that should have been discussed
that were not discussed? Is there a middle ground to these two issues that suggests itself?
The last paragraph will revisit your major points of discussion (look at the topic sentences in
your synthesis section) and your thesis idea and will “conclude” the essay. You conclusion does
not need to re-summarize the early, summary section of your essay. It should really deal only
with the sections from your thesis to the end of the essay, i.e. your own thinking.
