Informative Synthesis: Student Debt

Informative Synthesis: Student Debt

Informative Synthesis: Student Debt. Write an essay that gives the reader an overview of your topic; give background of the issues that will be discussed in the essay. Next, write about the current status of the issue. Finally, tell the reader about the different sides connected with the issue. In this part of the paper, just present the sides—unbiased (don’t take a side). Your opinion is NOT needed in an Informative—Synthesis paper; save it for a persuasive paper. The essay must be three full pages and abide by all 8th edition MLA standards. Required sources include: an encyclopedia, a news article from Opposing Viewpoints, a peer reviewed journal, and only one of these: .com/.org./.edu./.gov (If there are more than one of these internet sources, ten points, per source, will be deducted for failing to read the instructions. See the rubric below.

WHAT IS A SYNTHESIS? A synthesis is a written discussion that draws on one or more sources. It follows that your ability to write syntheses depends on your ability to infer relationships among sources—essays, articles, fiction, and also non-written sources, such as lectures, interviews, and observations. This process is nothing new for you, since you infer relationships all the time, say, between something you’ve read in the newspaper and something you’ve seen for yourself, or between the teaching styles of your favorite and least favorite instructors. In fact, if you’ve written research papers, you’ve already written syntheses. In an academic synthesis, you make explicit the relationships that you have inferred among separate sources.

Because a synthesis is based on two or more sources, you will need to be selective when choosing information from each. It would be neither possible nor desirable, for instance, to discuss in a ten-page paper on the battle of Wounded Knee every point that the authors of two books make about their subject. What you as a writer must do is select the ideas and information from each source that best allow you to achieve your purpose, which is to inform the reader.
