Health 231 Health and Social Policy Assignment: Compare and Contrast Perspectives Paper One important skill to learn is how to look at an argument, see both sides and be able to pull out your own thoughts from the two different perspectives. This assignment asks you to analyze two different perspectives on this issue of tobacco regulation and control. Start by analyzing each of the perspectives. Read The United States Needs a Comprehensive Tobacco Control Policy and take notes on the argument that is presented. Do the same with The Government Should Not Regulate Smoking. Your write up should include the following sections. Make sure to answer the questions listed in paragraph format—not as a list! This is a short, but important essay technique. 1. Introduction Your introduction should open generally (with a quotation, anecdote, generalization), and lead into the thesis statement. Your thesis will include information about the basic ideas of each perspective and end with what your claim will be. 2. The United States Needs a Comprehensive Tobacco Control Policy This next portion of your essay (which may consist of one paragraph or several) should cover only this reading. Do not mention the other perspective here. Make sure to include information from the reading itself, examples or statistics that back up your argument. What is the basis of the argument? What is the writer’s position or claim? What is the benefit of this claim? What problems would be eliminated? What evidence (facts/statistics, personal examples, expert quotes) does the write offer in support of his arguments? What does the write acknowledge are the counter arguments to this claim?
