Part 5 presents the last draft of the final paper for this Project. This 1,200 – 1,400-word final draft should include a thesis, all major points and evidence, an introduction and conclusion, and a Works Cited page. The evidence requirement for this Part includes at least five sources. Your five sources should include one primary source for each of the two stakeholders (such as information from their websites), at least one credible/scholarly source for each of the two stakeholders (such as scholarly articles that support their arguments or stances), and at least one credible/scholarly source that supports the validity of your proposed compromise.
In review of the essay requirements for this project, your project 1 final version should include the following: (1) an introduction that clearly identifies both stakeholders, the controversial issue, and thesis that presents the point of contention between the stakeholders and explains a proposed compromise, (2) a fair representation of the major stakeholders’ points and evidence that demonstrates your understanding of the value of each position (empathy), (3) a discussion of what the two stakeholders have in common (common ground), (4) a single, feasible and objective resolution that would benefit both stakeholders and potentially work to resolve the issue, (5) a defense of why the resolution is workable for both stakeholders and in which contexts the compromise will work and satisfy each stakeholder, (6) a conclusion that highlights the main points and considers forward-thinking research ideas for research/action, and (7) a Works Cited page.
