* Using your sources to inform your writing may seem like a straight-forward task; however, the interpretation, synthesis, and integration of source material to construct an argument requires more than just access.

* Let's talk about some integration concepts that you should consider for your %newwin%[[Sample Essays|argument essay]]:

** Filling gaps (you don't need all the answers!) - you are writing to add your voice to a larger conversation; find a ''particular thing'' about your topic and focus on it, rather than giving a broad overview of something.

%center%'''[+Discussion & Application+]'''

* Let's talk about how argumentation applies to your topics.

* Use the %newwin%[[Argumentative Guide]] to aid you in outlining your argumentative paper.
* Create a new doc and compose two claims, one based on facts from your research and one based on defining something about your topic. List ''at least 3 reasons'' you could use to support them. Remember:
** Claims should be arguable and debatable. They can't simply state a fact we all agree on.
**You must be able to support your claims with reasons and, eventually, ''evidence based on your research.''

* Submit this as your weekly assignment in Blackboard!

Final Portfolio: Multimodal=Multiple %newwin%[[http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/stamp/stamp.jsp?tp=&arnumber=749365|Genres]]

* Your final portfolio will include scholarly writing (your argument essay), web design (your research proposal and argument essay will both be incorporated into a website you've created), and research (your sources will be listed in a citation style of your choice).
* We'll get to the web design stuff soon, but first we need to dig into the research and argumentative writing.
