REQUIREMENTS:
As support in the essay, use summaries, quotes and paraphrases from primary and secondary sources.

How to Organize Your Paper
Introduction:
Your research paper includes an introduction that has:
_ an interesting hook that captures attention
_ a strong thesis statement (uses words like “should , must, ought, necessary)
_ no use of first person (I, we, us our) or 2nd person (you)
_ no phrases resembling, “In this paper you’ll learn…” or “After reading this paper…”
Your  introduction should grab the reader’s attention, set up the comparison, and lead in to your thesis. (Note: The title and first paragraph are probably the most important elements in your essay. In the first paragraph you either hook the reader’s interest or lose it.)
Body:
Secondary Sources and Plagiarism:
Each individual paragraph should be focused on a single idea that supports your thesis. Begin paragraphs with topic sentences, support assertions with evidence, and expound your ideas in the clearest, most sensible way you can. The topic you have chosen must now be explained, described, or argued. Each main idea that you wrote down in your diagram or outline will become one of the body paragraphs. If you had three or four main ideas, you will have three or four body paragraphs.
Each body paragraph will have the same basic structure.
Start by writing down one of your main ideas, in sentence form.
Next, write down each of your supporting points for that main idea, but leave four or five lines in between each point. 
In the space under each point, write down some elaboration for that point. Elaboration can be further description or explanation or discussion.
If you wish, include a summary sentence for each paragraph. This is not generally needed, however, and such sentences have a tendency to sound stilted, so be cautious about using them. 
Once you have fleshed out each of your body paragraphs, one for each main point, you are ready to continue.
Internal Citations:
Your research paper includes internal citations according to the following standards:
The required number of secondary sources, cited parenthetically in the proper format: (Davis 1999).
Credit is given each time that the information is used, even if it is paraphrased or summarized.
Each source listed on your works cited page is cited at least once within your paper.
 
Conclusion:
Your paper includes a conclusion that has:
_ A logical closing that ties together the main points of your paper.
_ A unique closing statement that does not repeat the opening statement and leaves the reader with something to think about.
_ No phrases resembling, “In this paper you have learned…” or “Now that you’ve read my paper…”

 explaining why you think the argument given is a fallacy.  Do this for the following exercises:pages 121-122, exercises 1-5
page 126, exercises 1-6
page 132, exercises 1-5
Here’s an example of what I’m looking for (you don’t have to re-write the example, just provide your answer):
exercise # 4, page 127:  “There is no evidence that ghosts don’t exist.  Therefore, they exist.”
This is an example of an appeal to ignorance.  Just because we lack evidence that ghosts don’t exist does not prove that they do exist. All it shows is that we are unsure of their existence.
