Essay Assignment: Write careful summary (at least 1000 words and 5 paragraphs) of the two Pro-Con essays in the CQR report, “Reigning in Big Tech,” which is located in the CQR Module. Do not read the entire report yet, just the two short essays on p. 17. The essay will be due Monday, June 7.
Your essay should begin with a brief introduction stating the issue and your hypothesis on the issue (your position). Then give a brief and objective summary (at least one paragraph) of the essay you most agree with – you may not agree with everything it says, but it should be the one closest to your own position. Then write another brief but fair and objective summary (again, at least one paragraph) of the other essay – the counter argument to your own, the one you disagree with. Finally, conclude your essay with your response to the two arguments. Are there points you agree with/disagree with in both essays? Is the reasoning and evidence they give persuasive? How does reading these two arguments change or modify your original hypothesis on the issue? (Hint: You should at least see that any hypothesis written without much supporting evidence is going to make for a relatively weak argument). This is why we do research, to find and evaluate the evidence that will make a strong and persuasive argument. Where could your own argument benefit from better support?
Use the following guide to help you summarize the two essays.
First, download the CQR report on “Reining in Big Tech” from the CQR module in Canvas if you haven’t already, then click Pro/Con in the table of contents to read the two arguments. Your summary should include:
1. A brief restatement, in your own words, of the essay’s thesis (or major “claim”) and in what context it is presented. Does the claim come at the beginning, middle, or end of the essay? Why? What does the placement and way the claim is stated tell you about the strategy of the argument, and the audience?
2. The major reasons given which support the claim. Do the reasons appeal mostly to logic, values, or emotion?
3. The supporting evidence given for each reason. The underlined words in blue are links to additional evidence. Is it “hard,” objective evidence, or relatively “soft” and subjective? Why do you think the author chose that kind of evidence?
4. Overall, do you think the argument is effective or not? Why? How does the reasoning in this essay compare with your own argument?
Summary, Not Quotation: Do not use quotes from the two essays, or cite any other sources beyond what is considered common knowledge. Instead, use only summary. You must give the name of each author when you summarize their essay, but then restate their main points in your own words. To do this, read a part of the essay (at least a paragraph) until you have a good understanding of the content, and then write your summary of that passage without looking back at the text. This is the best way to avoid using the original wording of the essay and thereby committing the “sin” of plagiarism!
Format Requirements: Your essay must be typed following MLA format conventions (see the sample MLA paper in the OWL MLA 8th Edition presentation in the Textbook module, slide #10): double-spaced, one inch margins, headings, title, page numbering, etc. Please use 12-point Times New Roman (or something similar) for your font style and size. Submit your essay in MS Word (.doc or .docx) or Adobe Portable Document (.pdf). Other formats are NOT acceptable for submission.

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?
It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.
Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email ( or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
