For this milestone, you will submit your first draft of a persuasive essay. It should express your position on a selected topic, present points that explain and justify the position, consider arguments against the position, and explain why readers should adopt your position. The draft should use outside sources to support the points for and against your position, and it should acknowledge the sources with in-text references and appropriate documentation.

The first draft should be 4–5 pages long and follow MLA or APA style. For additional details, please refer to the Final Project Document and the First Draft Persuasive Essay Checklist and Rubric document in the Assignment Guidelines and Rubrics section of the course.
