The topic I am going to write my argument paper about is if welfare check recipients should have to be drug tested to get their welfare checks. The main points I am going to use to support my thesis, which is that welfare check recipients should be drug tested are that the money used in these checks is tax payer’s money. Tax payers do not want their money going to people who are wasting it on illegal drugs, they want that money being used to help people. To support this point I am going to research statistics about people who receive welfare checks also doing drugs. I am going to try to find the percent of people who have been caught or got in trouble with drugs and also get welfare, I am going to use this statistical information to try and persuade people that people who receive welfare checks should be drug tested.
While writing this paper I feel the biggest challenge for me will be being able to provide enough information to support my thesis. The whole paper will be a challenge because I have never written an argument paper before, but my biggest concern is not having enough facts and statistical information to prove my point. I haven’t started my research yet, but I hope I can find reliable websites and articles about my topic. Another thing that makes me nervous about this paper is how to format it, since I’ve never written an argument paper before I am not very confident on the layout of the paper. I know how to do the intro, thesis and conclusion part, but organizing my facts and information into the body of my paper is going to be a challenge for me. Hopefully once I get my paper edited on Monday I will be able to go back and organize it better and fix my mistakes. I also know that citing whole paragraphs in my paper may be another area I need to work on, I know it will be easy for me to cite each sentence instead of using my own opinions. Those are the challenges I think I will face while writing this paper.
