Taking a Stand on Standard Written English

Paper details:

At the beginning of this project, in Two Key Questions about Standard Written English (5.1), you were asked these questions: Does the requirement that students write in Standard Written English make it harder for students who have grown up using a different version of English to succeed in college writing courses? If colleges don’t help students learn to write in Standard Written English, will it be harder for them to succeed in the American workplace? Throughout this project, you have read, discussed, and written about the issues raised by these questions and explored some of the possible solutions to them. Now it is your turn to express and support your position on this topic. Assignment. For this assignment, you will write a college essay—three to four pages long—that is suitable for a course in education, political science, social sciences, or even English. In your essay, you will argue for one of the following positions. Students should be required to write essays in college courses that conform to the conventions of Standard Written English. Students should be allowed to write college essays making use of the version of English they are comfortable with. A position of your choice on the issue of acceptable language in college essays that is different from either of the first two options. Option. This project has primarily focused on language and power issues as they affect African American students. If you would like to include in your essay a discussion of how these issues affect other groups—Hispanic students, Appalachian students, students from working-class backgrounds, students for whom English is a second language, students who speak a World English, students who speak a Pidgin or Creole—that would be fine too. Documentation. Your instructor will provide specific requirements about including quotations, citations, and the documentation style to use. Be sure to provide appropriate citations for any words you quote, paraphrase, or summarize from readings in this project or articles that you have found through your research and to include a works cited list or list of references at the end of your essay. If you need to review how to provide this documentation, refer to MLA Documentation (Topic 23) or APA Documentation (Topic 24). When you do include quotations, paraphrases, or summaries to support your argument, you need to tie them together, explain their relationships with each other, and express your conclusions about them (see Synthesis [22.14]).
