35 Assignment: Argument Draft
For your assignment this week, your goal is to write a draft of your paper arguing that your non-profit organization meets the particular need in the community better than any other organization. You want to show your readers that the organization not only is effective, but that it is worthy of their support. That includes, of course, showing readers ways that they can get involved. Make sure you follow the outline you created in the last assignment to keep your argument organized and focused.
Include quotes from your sources to support your ideas. Remember, each source included on your Works Cited page MUST be cited at least one time in the body of the paper. A good rule of thumb is to include a quote in each paragraph.
