ENG 106 Week 4 Causal Argument First Draft (Benchmark)
Choose an issue about the causes or consequences of a trend, event, or other phenomenon related to the sale or trade of human organs. Write a 1,500–1,750-word argument using five to seven academic resources that persuades an audience to accept your explanation of the causes or consequences of your chosen phenomenon. Within your essay, be sure to do the following:
1. Examine alternative hypotheses or opposing views and explain your reasons for rejecting them.
2. Imagine your issue either as a puzzle or as a disagreement. If a puzzle, your task will be to create a convincing case for an audience that does not have an answer to your causal question already in mind. If a disagreement, your task will be more overtly persuasive because your goal will be to change your audience’s views.
3. Use the structure for a causal argument to write your essay. Outlines for this type of argument are found in chapter 12 of the textbook.
