    This part of your assignment was flagged by Academic Integrity as being copied and pasted from an outside source: "One of the hottest debates in the sports world is whether or not college athletes should receive a cut of the revenue they produce for the school. Football and men’s basketball players generate billions of dollars a year through television contracts, so why don’t they get to share in the profits? Does this mean that big time universities are exploiting their college athletes so that they can cash in on their talents? Quite simply, the answer is no. Universities should not allow players to receive any kind of compensation for their performances. Many people are not aware that most athletic departments actually lose money year after year trying to fund programs. Out of the 120 FBS (formerly named Division 1) schools, only twelve broke even or made a profit last year. How are these struggling athletic departments supposed to cough up even more money per year to pay their athletes to play?" I'm not sure if you were submitting this as your paragraph, or if you were using it as a source? If so, you are allowed to take information from it, but you have to write it in your own words and cite the source. I would really like for you to attend a live lesson to help you with this unit. There is one available on Monday at 1:00 PM specifically on how to use research for this assignment. Also, I think this note-taking guide would really help you with this assignment: https://english1helpsite.files.wordpress.com/2014/03/5-07.doc You will not turn in that worksheet, but I think if you complete it, it would help you write this assignment. There's also a great video on how to complete this assignment successfully: http://learn.flvs.net/educator/common/Course/English1/HelpSite/v12Videos/5.07tutorialvideo.mp4 Please take a look at the above resources before trying this assignment again. I will reset your submissions so you can resubmit. :) Mrs. F ____________________________________________________________ Hey Louise, This submission is better, but you still aren't really following the required format. Also, I would suggest having a teacher or another adult proofread your writing before you submit. Here are some pointers for the format you need to follow: When you state your claim...it needs to be your opinion! Then, when you state the counterclaim...this should state why some people might agree with you! It should be the opposite of how you think. A counterclaim usually starts with something like, "Many people believe...", "Others think..." etc. Remember, an argument has to have TWO sides. Your opinion and what the other people think. I think your hook needs a little bit of work. When you write a hook, this should be something that really grabs the reader's attention. What could you say to open your argument that would HOOK your audience and make them want to keep reading?? Make sure to follow the proper structure when you write an opening introduction paragraph. You should write in the following order: Hook - How can you grab the reader's attention? Bridge - Use this to lead in to and connect your hook and the counterclaim. Counterclaim -State what your opponents believe. Bridge - Use this to lead in to and connect your counterclaim and claim Claim - State your opinion and what you think. Let me know if you need further help with this! :) Mrs. F _________________________________ Hi Louise, For this assignment, you need to follow the format given in the lesson for your introduction. I will provide it below. Also, please always check your writing for punctuation. This paragraph contains no punctuation, which makes it one long sentence. Here is what your 5.07 introduction should look like: A. Hook B. Bridge between hook and argument topic C. Counterclaim D. Bridge between the counterclaim and claim E. Claim The main thing to remember is that you should make it clear which side is your claim, and that the counterclaim is how others may feel, but NOT how you feel. Click HERE to get a copy of the Opening Paragraph Worksheet that you will need to complete and submit for your 5.07 assignment. Click HERE to view the resources provided for you in the lesson about College Athletics. You can use these websites for your research to support your opinion. Click HERE to view the resources provided for you in the lesson about Banned Books. You can use these websites for your research to support your opinion.
