Topic:  Should hospital emergency departments be used to treat mental health patients?InstructionsThis week, you will complete your argumentative essay. Following the direction offered by Jackson and Newberry (2016) in Chapter 12, write an argumentative essay on the issue you chose in Week 2. Be sure your essay contains the following:An introduction containing a thesis that states the issue, your position on the issue, what the paper will cover, and in what orderAt least 2 paragraphs that each contain a well-supported (and documented) claim or sub-argument that will provide strong support for your fallacy-free argumentAt least 1 paragraph discussing a documented, reasonable counterclaim to your position that needs to be a legitimate claim that someone has actually made as a counter-position on your issueAt least 1 paragraph offering a reasonable, documented response to that counterclaimA conclusion that summarizes the argument and conclusionNote: As you do your research, it is permissible to change your sources. Also, because of the recency and relevance of these issues, no sources older than 5 years should be used other than as historical information. Critical thinkers do the research first and then side with the preponderance of evidence. You might want to follow that principle.Writing Requirements (APA format)Length: 750-1000 words – approx. 3-4 pages (not including title page or references page)1-inch marginsDouble spaced12-point Times New Roman fontTitle pageReferences page (5 sources)GradingThis activity will be graded using the Argumentative Essay Grading Rubric.Argumentative Essay Grading Rubric – 150 ptsYou’ve already rated students with this rubric.
