The topic for an argumentative research paper must be a debatable topic, meaning that it involves conflicting viewpoints.

Following the Topic Selection Guidelines below, choose an argumentative topic to research. This will be your topic throughout the entire course, so the activities required for this assignment will provide the foundation for your future Touchstones. The topic for an argumentative research paper must be a debatable topic, meaning that it involves conflicting viewpoints.

Explain why the source is credible.

Now that we have discussed the importance of using credible secondary sources for your project, let us start annotating! Do not worry—we are going to walk through the process one step at a time. In this section, we will first focus on finding sources. Then we will help you summarize those sources, evaluate their credibility, and explain how they will help support your argument. If you found a source that passed the C.R.A.A.P.O. test earlier in this module, feel free to use that source. If you decided to alter your keywords and you would like to start your research from scratch, restarting is totally fine too!
Prompt
In this activity, you will create an annotated bibliography by addressing the steps below and answering the prompts as thoroughly as possible. The prompts will help you to engage in a conversation with your sources. You will need to follow the steps below three times (for your three different sources).
Before you begin, make certain you have:
Selected three sources from the library database
At least one source that presents an opposing viewpoint, a position that an opponent of your argument might make
Applied the C.R.A.A.P.O. test to the sources to determine if they are credible and reliable (Remember, credible sources should score 35 points or more on the test)
Specifically, you must address the following rubric criteria for each of your three sources:
Identify the source by including the author, the title, and the database information.
Summarize the source. (Explain the main idea, the details or evidence that support the main idea, and the description of if your source supports your argument or an opposing viewpoint.)
Explain why the source is credible. The C.R.A.A.P.O. test will help; use the C.R.A.A.P.O. Test Worksheet linked in the Supporting Materials Section to see how the source scores.
Explain how the source supports at least one key point or opposing viewpoint from your argument.

The whole movie -> https://archive.org/details/RomeroDVD
Background information on the movie-> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1bEpEK7uKzE
I need an essay of five-paragraphs, that applies the themes of Catholic Social Teaching to the movie “Romero.”
I. … in your INTRO:
-include a definition and purpose of ‘Catholic Social Teaching”; it’s good academic practice to use official definitions for new concepts, so consider taking the CST description offered in your textbook and then reference the source in your essay. All academic writing must include a Works Cited list.
-brief precise of movie or historical context of film; showcase your knowledge of political ideologies in writing this!
-state your thesis (which will be determined from a careful reading of the essay instruction
II. in your FIRST BODY PARAGRAPH:
-include a description of the first CST you have elected to discuss; again AVOID language such as ‘life the way God intended it to be”; instead, use universally accepted, denomination-free synonymous language to communicate your thinking. No one will argue that life should flourish; many will argue that God exists or that humans can purport to know how God intends life to be!!
-include evidence from the film that illustrates this CST in positive application or in violation
-link the evidence OVERTLY to the description of the CST, ie explain WHY it is an application or violation
III. … in your SECOND BODY PARAGRAPH:
-include a description of the second CST you have elected to discuss
-include evidence from the film that illustrates this CST in positive application or in violation
-link the evidence OVERTLY to the description of the CST, ie explain WHY it is an application or violation
IV. … in your THIRD BODY PARAGRAPH:
-include a description of the third CST you have elected to discuss
-include evidence from the film that illustrates this CST in positive application or in violation
-link the evidence OVERTLY to the description of the CST, ie explain WHY it is an application or violation
V. … in your CONCLUSION
– leave the reader with an overall impression of your thesis
Reminder: if you include a direct quote from the film or provide background details about the conflict in El Salvador from an online resource you MUST properly cite the resource by including a parenthetical reference and works cited.
