Evaluation Argument Assignment

Please keep in mind that the overall point of this assignment is to EVALUATE the

policy/law/program based on your personally-designed criteria.

Topic Options – Please choose one of the following topics as the focus of your essay.

1. Mental Wellness

? Consider the mental health screening performed in routine medical visits.

? With such a significant proportion of the adult population reportedly suffering from some

form of mental illness at some point in their lives, should mental health “wellness” visits be

recommended or required in addition to an annual physical exam performed by a medical

doctor? Or are basic mental health screenings conducted during medical visits sufficient?

? How could regulating mental health services impact society overall long-term in regard to

suicide/incarceration/homelessness/poverty/general well-being?

? How could “early detection” of mental health issues change our society?

2. Cultural Stigma

? Consider the rates of reported mental illness among various communities/nations.

? Does the level of social acceptance/rejection seem to correlate with any demographic

variables?

? Do the actions/behaviors of particular public figures significantly influence cultural stigma?

3. Mental Health Services for College Students

? Consider the mental health services available to college students.

? What mental health issues are treated by on-campus counseling services? Do they provide

direct counseling or refer to other resources?

? Are higher education institutions required to provide counseling services?

? Do they have reporting/intervention services? If so, does this infringe on student privacy?

? How could increasing mental health services to a population uniquely vulnerable, such as

“traditional” college-aged students (18 to 24 years old) impact society overall long-term in

regard to suicide/incarceration/homelessness/poverty/general well-being?

? (This topic could also be applied to homeless shelters/veterans services/etc.)

4. Treatment, Not Jail

? Consider the treatment options available to mentally ill inmates. You can focus on inmates

suffering from disorders such generalized anxiety or depression, or on those with more

extreme illnesses such as schizophrenia or dissociative personality disorder. You may also

consider those institutionalized after being judged criminally insane/not guilty by reason of

insanity.

? Are the treatment options reasonable/sufficient? Do they prepare inmates for healthy futures

once released from jail? Should that be a priority?

Assignment Outline
I.
Introduction:
• Introduce your topic.
• Include a thesis statement which specifically sets out what you are evaluating.
• Your thesis should be based on the following formula: (You need not phrase it
this way: the structure is offered as a guideline.)
X is (or is not) a good Y because it meets (or does not meet) criteria A, B, C, etc.
II.
History/Background to Current Situation:
• Discuss the significant and relevant history of your topic up to the current
situation and how it came to be.
III.
Evaluative Argument:
• Evaluate the situation. Is the current situation good/bad,
acceptable/unacceptable?
• Your argument must include:
o at least two well-explained and defended criteria
o an examination of your claim in terms of the stated criteria
o evidence for every part of the argument, not only for your evaluative
claim but also for your criteria selection, particularly if you suspect
your audience may not share your ideas about what is most important.
• Use current and relevant research to support your evaluation. Your source
material adds authority to your argument. It should contribute something to
your paper that you cannot: specific facts, clarification or emphasis of a point,
a voice with authority in a specific area, illustration of the controversy or
complexity around your issue.
IV.
Conclusion:
• Summarize your evaluation.
