In a 1,200-1,500 word essay, students will explain the perspectives of two different stakeholders on a given issue or topic, identifies common ground the two stakeholders share, and proposes and argues for a compromise that benefits both stakeholders. Students should clearly identify both stakeholders, fairly represent their perspectives using evidence, and posit a way for these two groups to reach common ground. Building on this common ground, students should also clearly argue for a solution that would allow both groups to reach a compromise on the issue or topic, provide contexts in which the compromise will work, and demonstrate that the compromise appeases both stakeholders.

I already have the stakeholders that I am using for the paper, but if this is something you could do, I will send you more detailed explanations of the assignment. The paper would be about the legal drinking age and the stakeholders would be the NYRA and MADD.

This document explains what needs to go into every single paragraph. I can also send a sample paper on a different topic if that would be helpful. I also wrote a rough draft but I received a C on it but it might help a little

this is my intermediate draft. if you need more websites you can add more. Also the two websites besides the MADD.org and the NYRA one you don’t have to use at all if you don’t need them, they will just need to be replaced with two different articles

 

 

 

The Paper’s Title

  • What proposed title will create a connection between your topic and a proposed resolution

of the seemingly incompatible goals of the stakeholders?

  • What precautions can be taken to ensure that the title’s wording remains empathetic to

both stakeholders (unbiased) and does not sound like the title of a research paper on the subject?

Introduction

  • What topic or issue is being addressed?
  • Why is this issue an important contemporary concern?
  • What might be a proposed working thesis for your Project 2 paper? Be sure to address the

topic or issue, incompatibility of the stakeholders (problem), and hope for resolving the tension

between them by reaching a mutually satisfying solution to the problem.

Presentation of the First Stakeholder (stakeholder selected for Project 1)

  • What is the primary goal and objective of this stakeholder?
  • What are the principal arguments used by the stakeholder to support their position and

claims? (Use your source material to assist you with answering this question.)

  • What precautions can be taken to present the arguments of this stakeholder without

showing obvious bias in favor of their position or overtly promoting their position?

Presentation of the Second Stakeholder

  • What is the primary goal and objective of this stakeholder?
  • What are the principal arguments used by the stakeholder to support their position and

claims? (Use your source material to assist you with answering this question.)

  • What precautions can be taken to present the arguments of this stakeholder without

showing obvious bias against this stakeholder or openly criticizing their position?

Finding Shared Common Ground

  • What shared interests do the stakeholders have in common, despite seemingly

incompatible goals?

  • What shared concerns do the stakeholders have in common, despite seemingly

incompatible goals?

  • What shared needs do the stakeholders have in common, despite seemingly incompatible

goals?

Proposed Solution to Stakeholders’ Seeming Incompatibility (Problem)

  • What current or past solutions to this seeming incompatibility have been offered (if any)?
  • How can both stakeholders “give a little” in order to ease the tension between their

seemingly incompatible goals?

  • Using your research-based knowledge about the topic, the stakeholder’s goals, and current

or past solutions, what fresh, new, previously untried approach to resolving the tension created

by the stakeholder’s incompatible goals can you offer?

Rationale for Your Proposed Solution

(Note: The flow of ideas up to this point in the papers should be leading your reader to this

rationale and subsequent implementation of your proposed solution.)

  • Why does your proposed solution (identified in the previous paragraph) benefit both

stakeholders?

  • How does your proposed solution benefit the first stakeholder?
  • How does your proposed solution benefit the second stakeholder?

Practical Implementation of Your Proposed Solution

  • Now that you have used your critical thinking skills to generate an innovative solution to

the stakeholders’ incompatibility (problem), how will this solution be implemented at a practical

level?

  • What specific, practical steps will need to be taken in order to implement this solution?
  • What type of costs might be involved to implement this solution?
  • What might be the source of the funding for this solution?
  • What suggested time frame is involved in implementing this solution?

Conclusion

  • How can you reiterate the paper’s main points without losing your reader’s interest?
  • How will your paper answer the “So what?” question? In what way can you challenge

your reader so that he or she is left with something to think about?

  • On what positive, hopeful note regarding the resolution of the stakeholders’ seemingly

incompatible goals can you conclude your paper?
