Major Paper Three Guidelines ENGL 102 Major Essay Three: Writing Assignment Guidelines For your final major writing assignment, prepare a 2,500-word research essay that takes a Rogerian approach to argument. In a Rogerian argument, you are required to look at an issue from multiple viewpoints, showing empathy for the various perspectives. As such, your research will take you in some new directions—in addition to the scholarly sources of earlier papers, you will want to find out the authentic positions of various points of view, which may mean going to social media, blogs, advocacy group sites, etc. Your paper should include the following elements: background discussion of the issue, an explanation of the various interest groups and their perspectives on the issue, an exploration of common ground, and, finally, a possible solution/resolution/way forward on the issue. You must cite a minimum of eight sources. Your paper must use APA format, including a title page, abstract, and references page. You should also include headings.
