You are to write a position paper. The topics for the papers need to come from chapter readings (1-3ish) (thus, you must read before you start to write). For a position paper, you are to take up a position for or against a particular topic. The topic is to be chosen from that week’s readings and is at your discretion. However, I urge you to choose something that interests you. Topic: ‘(Against Freedom of Speech”)
You may think that position papers are opinion papers, they are not! Position papers are about writing well-articulated thoughts on a topic that is backed up with facts, statistics, and in some cases, peer-reviewed scientific journal articles. When those items are not relevant, such as in a presidential race, you need to support your views with an example that helps others understand your point of view. In many ways, you are not only trying to show the reader your position on a topic but help them understand why you have a particular position. (of course, you need to write these with ethics in mind, not government)
Please also have in mind ethics as it relates to the matter. Please use references from the book “Ethics for the Information Age by Michael J. Quinn”Chapters 1-3
All position papers should follow APA or MLA guidelines, have a minimum of six popular references and one peer-reviewed reference (as appropriate), and be atleast4 pages in length, double-spaced.
