Argumentative Essay
This assignment is based on the following two readings. Use details from both readings to argue your position on the issue.
Chapters one and two only – Coffee Culture: Local Experiences and Global Connections by Catherine Tucker
Coffee Talk by Johanna Kirk (locate and download from the argumentative essay folder)
After reading chapters one and two in Coffee Culture: Local Experiences and Global Connections by Catherine Tucker, one gathers that coffee may be considered a prestigious product. Tucker mentions that it is likely that details surrounding coffee may “vary” among social classes (24).
Write an argumentative essay to argue if coffee should be considered a prestigious drink. Use ideas from two assigned readings to support or reject your arguable claim.
Present a clear thesis statement, which outlines the objective and purpose of the paper. –
Present and discuss three distinct ideas to support your position on the issue. Use reason, authority, and emotion (logos, pathos, ethos) to build the argument.
Remember to be fair-minded when discussing both sides
Your concluding paragraph should restate the topic, reinforce your position on the issue, and offer some form of advice to an audience who may be concerned about this topic.
Introduction
Include a purpose statement (to argue).
A solid thesis statement must be at the end of the intro. (2-3 sentences that outlines what ideas will be ARGUED in the body
Summary
Write the summary in a separate paragraph.
Summarize the reading that the essay is based on (re-read the essay question).

Body Paragraphs
An argument has TWO sides. Make sure you state the 2 sides at the start of the argument. Then explain WHY each side is good or bad, effective or not effective, useful or useless.
Use the word BECAUSE. If I do not see this word, then it means you are not explaining anything. An essay must have explanations
All paragraphs should be 12-15 lines.
Grammar
Delete all I statements and phrases (I will …I believe…I think ).
Do not write etc. in academic essays
Write in the present tense, unless if past is needed.
Avoid useless and unnecessary/empty phrases (these do not provide details about the essay topic itself)
An argument goes back and forth. Allow your writing to sound as though you are going back and forth on an issue. Then, in each body paragraph argument, take the time to choose one and explain why that choice is the better of the two. Now, that’s an argument!
