Rogerian Position Essay
1200 words minimum– 7 pages of text maximum, the Works Cited and heading do not count toward this total
3 sources minimum– 4 maximum
Due April 22nd
Your final major essay presents you with a dual task: arguing your own perspective while simultaneously acknowledging and validating oppositional ones. This is the Rogerian model of argument, which asks us to expand upon our innate argumentative impulses (arguing for our own point, solely) by exploring and even legitimizing disparate viewpoints. Philosophically, it seems reasonable to suggest that most of us observe a world woefully bereft of genuine reflection, in which too many people presume their own to be ideals infallible, inviolable, but I often wonder how right people can be who never question that they might be wrong.
The Rogerian model requires us to go beyond a condescending nod at conflicting ideologies, exploring and investing in multiple perspectives before settling on any one as “correct.” Therefore, in your essay, you will need to argue a position through the mechanism of that model, presenting your own idea(s) alongside a sincere exploration of an alternative one(s). From the humorous to the dire, the frivolous to the ominous, the subject is utterly your choice, the goal being to sincerely explore alternatives before revisiting, tempered by the test of opposition, your original position.
Above all else, follow fundamental rules of syntax (punctuation, conjugation, etc.).
Write with a close eye on clarity; every sentence must make fundamental sense, must be easily understood.
Avoid clichés, e.g. “Agree to disagree,” “Everyone has their opinion, but…” etc.
Do not objectify the essay, e.g. “In this essay…” or, “I’m writing this because…” or, “I had to think a long time about what to write…”
Cite sources according to MLA format; use RW as a resource.
Write something you know, something you care about.
The essay can be organized in several ways, but is often organized as follows:
Part 1) intro., statement of problem/position
Part 2) statement of position and support
Part 3) acknowledging opposition/alternative
Part 4) middle-ground, favoring original position
This may or may not coincide with the number of paragraphs in the essay; you’ll want to make sure more time is spent supporting your thesis than is spent acknowledging its opposition. Therefore, you may have two or more paragraphs stating and supporting your position, and one paragraph of opposition.
Apply rules of standard English and skills learned in ENG 112
Develop and elaborate upon a coherent, identifiable thesis from introduction through conclusion (using TSIS parts 1-4 for reference).
Incorporate researched sources into text.

This is what I got started
should using animals for scientific research be encouraged? Should scientists use animals to help understand our bodies and how they work? Well 50% of the people who live in the U.S say scientists should use animals for scientific research the other 50% say scientists should not. People who say scientists should not use animals, say this because animals are deliberately sickened with toxic chemicals or infected with diseases, live in barren cages, and are typically killed when the experiment ends. And the other half says science should be used because animals are biologically similar to humans and susceptible to many of the same health problems. Also, they have short life cycles so they can easily be studied throughout their whole life span or across several generations.
