About the Research-Based Proposal Argument
Argumentative writing requires you to find and integrate multiple sources in order to make a strong, cohesive argument. The audience for your Research-Based Proposal Argument may or may not be agreeable to your perspective and/or the solution you propose. Therefore, it is important that you address other sides and perspectives of the issue and support your argument with adequate evidence. Equally important is that your argument proposes a reasonable solution to the appropriate audience. Consider what is reasonably attainable, and who are the right audiences to make this change? How might you access that audience to create this change?
