Inquiry 3 Research-Based Argument

Inquiry 3 is a research-driven assignment. It will require you to find and integrate multiple sources in order to make a strong, cohesive argument. The audience for your argument may or may not be agreeable to your perspective. Therefore, it is important that you address other sides and perspectives to the issue and demonstrate the validity of your view.

To best establish your argument, you will need to bring in outside sources. In selecting your sources, you should utilize your rhetorical knowledge to assess credibility, relevance, and usefulness. Bringing in the strongest sources will be key in crafting an effective Inquiry.

All outside information should be properly credited to their original creators. Be sure to cite these sources correctly according to the particular citation format your instructor requires.
