Please read Joanna MacKay’s essay, “Organ Sales Will Save Lives.” This text provides a clear example of the type of argumentative essay that you will be composing over the course of the next two weeks. Complete the following writing exercises. Please upload your assignment to Canvas as a .doc, .docx, .rtf, or .pdf.
- Why would MacKay’s essay be considered an argumentative essay rather than an exploratory essay? Carefully explain your answer in one paragraph. You may want to address specific parts of her essay, such as her thesis and/or introductory paragraph.
- Now, think about your exploratory essay. What are some overall differences between your essay and MacKay’s? What are some strategies you should use when you move from your Exploratory Essay to your Researched Position Essay? What will you need to take out, add, and revise? Be as specific as possible. Your answer should be at least two paragraphs long.
- If you have any specific questions for me about your essay or your research, you may add them to the bottom of this assignment. But first, be sure to read my emails, private Canvas messages, announcements, and feedback on all previous work to ensure your question hasn’t already been answered.
