    I'm trying to write an argument research paper on social media and mental illness or social media and relationships but I'm having trouble narrowing my topic and creating the key points for my paper.

    Hi Rosie--You have a good topic and an interesting personal connection. I'd suggest that you do a frame story introduction and conclusion. Start with your situation and then stop part-way through and ask the question: should you call CPS? Then do your answer and tell why or why not. Finish with telling the end of your story. See my articles on "How to write an argument paper" and "How to write a position paper" for full instructions.

    Wondering how to write a position essay. Topic should you call Child Protective Services. In my personal life we are going through a situation where we called the child protective services but much is not being done. Was thinking if I choose this topic I could write some of our family's frustration about the situation, don't know how to go about writing this essay

    Roami, You have an interesting idea. I think one way for you to get some good information to start your paper is to research why local languages are not included in the instruction first. Next, you might want to interview some people to find out their positions and to get some quotes on this topic. Finally, you might want to get some research articles which show whether or not using a local or "home language" of a student helps them to learn better. In the United States, research has shown that students who receive some instruction in their own language at least at first often do better in the long run than a child who is "fully immersed" in English. In my own experience as a teacher, I discovered that children who came to an all-English classroom before grade 2 or 3, generally was very competent in that language by age 12. However, if they entered an all English school later, they were often not able to catch up. However, that only works if the child is in a school where no one else speaks their native language (as is often true in the U.S. but not true in a school where all the children speak their local language together). You have a wonderful topic and one that is very important for your country to consider. I wish you great success in your paper.

    Hi Sam, you might want to try my article about Funny Argumentative Essay Topic Ideas, or else do the negative of any idea here or in one of my many other argument essays. In a "devil's advocate" paper, you want to go against what most people think. Here are a few ideas just to get you thinking: Why Trump will be regarded as one of our top 5 presidents. Why we should leave ISIS alone. Why race is less a problem in America than Europe. Why the leader of North Korea isn't really crazy.

    Hello,

    I have this assignment of playing the role of devil's advocate and I can't think of a good topic!

    help!

    ( I personally prefer a political related topic).

    Aidyn-You add a very interesting position topic. I had not thought about schools making rules against fasting but it certainly could hurt a child's performance in school if they were fasting for a longer period than a day or two. That could cause a school to be concerned. Thanks for your comment and idea.

  • Aidyn Krikorian 12 months ago

    I greatly appreciate your website, and I have a suggestion for a topic. "Should we allow fasting or other religious acts in schools?" This topic facsinates me and I do hope you will consider it. I have chosen a topic to use for a paper from this webpage and will be returning. Thank you, Aidyn.

    Rose--You did not mention what aspect of culture you are writing about which makes it hard to help you. However, for example, if you are writing a paper arguing to people that only like modern music that classical music is worth listening to, you could start by talking about what you agree with about modern music and acknowledge why people of your generation might prefer to listen to it. Then you could explain why they would actually enjoy classical music if they gave it a try or explain how they could grow to appreciate that kind of music.

    Look for my articles about how to write argument or position essays for lots of ideas on how to introduce essays and find sources. Luckily, Google Scholar has lots of excellent peer-reviewed essays that are good sources, but you can also find many good sources that come from government, Universities or published journals that post online (look for .gov, .edu or a journal that also appears in print). One easy way to start your introduction is to tell a story about a student who is generally shy (or maybe bullied) but gets excited (and more included by others) when they are able to share about their own culture during a multiculturalism unit.

  • jenn 16 months ago

    Bebe--You don't tell me whether your paper is a research paper or not, but I've written many articles on how to write different sorts of essays. You can use the search engine on HubPages to find them, or look at the links that usually appear when you pull up one of my articles. Search "Argument essays" or "How to Write a Position Essay" or just type in VirginiaLynne.

    To start a paper on your topic, I think I would use a story in the introduction showing a miscommunication when people don't talk face to face.

  • Virginia Kearney 2 years agofrom United States

    Yes Alsaifl, I think that "What is beauty?" could be a topic. You are right that your answer would be a definition claim.

  • Jumanah Alsaif 2 years ago

    Is the topics What is true beauty? (definition) a good topic for a position paper? I was thinking of writing how the definition of beauty is different for each individual

    This would be an interesting article for school students. They always seem to struggle for essay ideas.

  • Virginia Kearney 3 years agofrom United States

    Hi Safa--Here are the main steps:

    1. Choose a question you are going to write about. Then think about what your answer to the question is going to be.

    2. Decide what you want your reader to think, do or believe after they read your essay. That is your thesis (the answer to your question).

    3. Decide who you want to persuade to believe this (that is your reader or audience). Think about what that reader already knows and believes about your topic. That will help you develop your arguments. The reader should not be someone who already believes what you do. If they do, you aren't really arguing are you?

    4. Think of at least 3 reasons why your reader should believe your thesis. Those reasons will be the main body part of your essay.

    5. Think of examples or evidence which supports each of those reasons. That is what you will use to support those three reasons.

    6. What objections will your reader have? Write those out and also your answers to those objections. This will be a paragraph after your reasons.

    7. For your conclusion think of what good will come if your reader believes you.

    I've written more in detail about this in my article: https://owlcation.com/academia/How-to-Write-an-Arg...

    Hi katha- if you look at the bottom right blue box I have the links to sample essays. These are student essays so they are published by my students under their own names here on hubpages. Maybe I should move these up on the page so you can find them more easily.

    Samarah--Yes I think that vaccinating children is a very good topic. You can also narrow that to particular types of vaccinations that are new like the chickenpox vaccine or the HPV. Another possible argument on this topic is whether or not it is true that vaccines are the main reason for better health in people today than in the past.

  • samarah15 4 years ago

    Is the right to vaccinate children a good topic?

  • Virginia Kearney 4 years agofrom United States

    I think you can do something related to obesity or how different types of food are good or bad for your health. Or you can talk about GMO foods or organic or locally grown produce.

    Xstatic--I love the fact that you do have a position on everything--I like to look at all sides of things and that is great as an instructor teaching positions, because I can play the devils advocate, but sometimes I do need to just nail down my own point of view!

  • Jim Higgins 5 years agofrom Eugene, Oregon

    A great "how to" for position papers. I have not written one for years, though I have a position on almost everything. Useful Hub and well done as usual.

  • Social Workers and Policy Advocacy Essay

    864 Words4 Pages

    As a social worker it is important to engage in policy practice. It is a part of the profession, whether you like it or not. It is an aspect that can change the way things are done for clients in a good way or bad. If you want to be more affective in practice, advocating for policies is one way of making sure your clients receive what they deserve. Chapin (2011) talks about how as a social worker you cannot take on every social policy issue, but it is important to consider the policies that affect your client population. In light of Chapin (2011) my client population is students in an alternative school, ages 17-20. The current policy that will affect them most in their school career is the Common Core State Standards. This is a policy…show more content…

    In the House the K-12 subcommittee, education appropriations subcommittee, and the education committee reviewed it. In the Senate the appropriations, education, and appropriations subcommittee on education reviewed the bill. Both of the bills were “killed” in one of the committees it was read to. This shows that there is still a need for more advocacy for this bill to be passed. One of the members on the House education committee is Joe Saunders. He is a supporter of this bill and wants to see it passed this time during legislation. When he spoke about this in class you could tell how passionate he was, he values education and wants to see the state of Florida improve in that area for the younger generations. Also, CPALMS is in support of this policy; this is the source for the standards in Florida (Common Core State Standards). On the other hand, like with any policy there will be opposition as well. In the state of Florida there are a lot of older adults making up the population. Since they are retired they may not think about the value of education for the younger population in the state. This is where there would need to be the most advocacy to get this population on board to pass this policy. The first step in the advocacy plan would be to talk with Joe Saunders, the representative in my district. It is important to voice your thoughts to a legislator who will support what you want to see
