Analysis Paper: TITLE: ‘Is paying to have your dog trained worth it’
Please be sure to include an outline with the paper, along with a thesis statement.
Communication is used to inform, to persuade and to analyze. In this assignment, you will analyze both sides of an issue and then present a fair and objective analysis. You will practice looking at both sides of an issue by writing an argument, a counterargument, and rebuttal.
Your introduction paragraph should include a “hook” to grab the reader’s attention. The thesis statement is typically seen in the first paragraph. To provide support for your thesis, you should use credible sources and cite them as APA formatted. In this persuasive paper, you will follow this structure and include a counterargument in which you introduce and provide support for a contradictory point of view.
Following the counterargument, you will provide a rebuttal, in which you explain why your initial point of view is more compelling than the counterargument. Both the counterargument and rebuttal should be integrated smoothly into your paper; no headings are needed to announce them. The conclusion should restate the strongest points from your argument and reinforce the conclusion while giving the reader something to think about moving forward. The conclusion may mention the counterargument and rebuttal.
