Should the death penalty be allowed in every state

Description Length: 7-8 pages (double-spaced) Citation Format: MLA Document Format: Microsoft Word (.doc or .docx), Times New Roman font, size 12pt Exigence: __/20 points The essay clearly explains what’s at stake in your topic, effectively proving that it’s a topic worth arguing about in the first place. (Imagine your reader asking you, “What’s the problem you’re trying to solve with this paper? Why tackle this problem now?”) Logos: __/20 points The essay should be logically organized and develop in a way that supports the initial claim in the thesis statement. Each paragraph (or section of paragraphs) should be clearly identified by a topic sentence(s). Overall, the paper should flow well with good transitions Ethos: __/20 points The essay should cite at least seven sources, five of which must be scholarly or peer-reviewed in nature. Pathos: __/20 points The paper demonstrates a recognition of, and persuasively appeals to and/or manages, the emotions of the target audience. By “managing” the emotions of your target audience, for example, that if you’re dealing with a topic to which people tend to have strong and possibly polarizing knee-jerk emotional responses, your challenge is to keep the reader cool-headed and open to your alternative viewpoint without being immediately turned off.
