Animal Testing

Animal Testing

The paper is going to be about animal testing and it will need at least two different articles with opposing views. I have the organization below and I will put what I am being graded for.


Introduction Section

Presents context and background, motivation for the reader to consider the issue
Presents the synthesis question
Demonstrates how the question is complex and important (here you already know the two opposing views)
Summary Section

Summarizes both articles or essays

States your thesis, which maps out your main analytical and synthesis point.
For example:
Both writers agree that movies have important stories to tell and that money is a necessary part of the expensive movie-making process, Scorsese says hero movies are crowding out other kinds of films while Adams claims that hero movies are meaningful for their younger audiences. Both writers point to the need to find a way for movies to make money while also allowing for artistic freedom.

The first part of the thesis states the points the writers agree on, the next part where they differ, and then finally how the two sides could be synthesized.

Analytical Section

Includes paragraphs for each article or essay discussing and developing analytical points, including:

who the author is,
why the author is writing
who the intended audience is
in what form the writing appeared
what the writers angle of vision is
how reliable and fair the writer is
how the writing uses logical support
how it appeals to emotion
how effective it is in achieving its purpose.
Response Section

Includes paragraphs discussing and developing your synthesis points, including:

how have the ideas you analyzed agree or disagree with each other
What new insights you have gained from your analysis
What new perspectives you have gained by contrast or clash with the ideas your have looked at
Which of the articles is more important to your perspective

Reiterates the values and limitations of the articles you have analyzed
Pulls together your insights

  • Many of the readings from the week on the history of the animal protection movement compared the animal rights and protection efforts to the Civil Rights Movement in both the tactics used and in their public policy approaches. Compare and contrast the Civil Rights Movement to the animal movement in terms of strategy, public perception, and legislation. Discuss the advantages and weaknesses (whether in terms of public perception, your own personal views, or otherwise) of such comparisons.
