Read “Why Prisons Don’t Work”. See attachment to read.

Write an argument essay in which you take a stand for or against the assertion that prisons exist so that “politicians can sell the illusion that permanently exiling people to prison will make society safe” (Rideau 150). You should write a well-designed and logical argument in which you take a stand based on this essay and your own scholarly research. For example, you may take the position that prisons do keep society safe, or you may take the position that prisons do not keep society safe. Remember that an effective argument recognizes all sides of an issue. Therefore, your essay should first support your assertion (in the first two body paragraphs). Then, in the last body paragraph, before you conclusion, you should recognize this opposition and either (1) concede the argument or (2) offer a counterpoint.

Because this discussion board counts as the argument essay, you must include at least two scholarly sources from SFFC’s databases. You may also reference Rideau’s essay in our course textbook. Be sure to use parenthetical citations for any references to your sources. At the bottom of your post, you should include a works cited list of your sources. Be sure to use MLA formatting for this.

Once you have written your argument post, write a well-crafted, thoughtful, and detailed response to the post of at least one other student. You must first submit your post before you can respond to your classmates’ posts.

This assignment requires that your original post be at least 500 words long. Posts that are more detailed and use extensive research (and, therefore, perhaps longer) may earn higher grades. However, do not assume that simply writing more words improve your post score; the content of the post will be considered as well. Finally, because this is a formal writing assignment, you should use your best writing. Points will be deducted for grammar, spelling, punctuation, and citation errors; however, because this is a post, these errors cannot be marked.

There is a student sample of an argument paper in the content area of Brightspace. This sample will help you understand the formatting for an argument essay.
