Media And Society Assignment

Media And Society

Assignment 1: Position Paper One – Media and Society 
This is the first of two (2) position papers based on the following scenario to be completed in this course.

Imagine  that you are running for a state office (e.g., governor, senator, or  Congressional representative) and you have to prepare a position paper  for a debate on controversial issues in the news. (Select one (1) of the  topics addressed in the first four weeks of this class.) Remember that  you are addressing a significant segment of your state’s population and  you want to be elected to public office, so your topic will have to have  a broad appeal, such as the importance of family values, the fair  treatment of women in the workplace (equal pay for equal work), the  treatment of minorities, and the media and one’s self-image, among other  topics from those chapters.
You  will want your position paper to demonstrate critical thinking, sound  logic, valid claims, personal passion, and credible support that is  cited correctly because the paper will be provided to the news media  before the debate and will be scrutinized by the media and reported on  regarding these criteria.

Write a two to three (2-3) page (500 to 750 words) paper in which you:

  1. Introduce  your position using a thesis statement in the first paragraph,  including a quote, question, or statistic from your reliable sources and  an overview of the main points you will cover. (It’s important to grab  the audience’s interest and inform the audience of what the main and  support points are.)
  2. Provide two or three (2-3) major points to support your thesis statement. (Put each major point in a separate paragraph.)
  3. Provide one (1) paragraph in which you identify and answer an expected argument against your view.
  4. Organize arguments and support your claims effectively.
  5. Demonstrate  personal passion for your position and critical thinking with  persuasive language, sound logic, valid claims, and credible support for  the claims.
  6. Use  the Strayer University Library at https://research.strayer.edu to  locate and provide two to three (2-3) credible and reliable sources (in  addition to the textbook) about current events, which have been  published in the last five (5) years and are cited correctly in the  position paper. (Wikipedia, dictionaries, and encyclopedias are unacceptable and will not count toward your number of credible sources.)

Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:

  • Be  typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with  one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow Strayer Writing Standards. Check with your professor for any additional instructions.
  • Include  a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s  name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover  page and the reference page are not included in the required assignment  page length.

The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:

  • Apply critical thinking skills to the analysis of issues involving mass media and society.
  • Use technology and information resources to research issues in media and society.
  • Write clearly and concisely about media and society using proper writing mechanics.
