Hi, this is Laura Turner, and today we're going to talk about how to write a position paper. A position paper is a paper that takes one side. So the best thing for you to do is actually get all of your facts and all of your opinions about this position, whether it be for or against the thing that you're writing, and put them all together, and figure out how to construct your essay from there in sort of standard format. Introduce your position to the reader, tell them about at least three things you're going to discuss in the paper about this position, and then just start sort of stacking up the facts against or for the thing that you're writing about. Even bring in sort of writers that have already written about it and take their quotations and try to just build the best argument for or against this position that you are being essentially you know forced to write about. And that's a position paper.
