In-Text Examples
According, Dorfman (2013) college athletes receive several sources of funding, such as
scholarships, stipends, educational expenses, etc., that amount to $125,000. He also argued that
student athletes receive training and medical funding that most nonathletic students do not have
access to. Similarly, athletes are provide meal plans that supplement the cost of shopping and
groceries (Johnson, 2014). Thus, it seems that student athletes are receiving compensation for
their hard work, but just not in the form of a salary in which most athletes desire (Student
athletes want, 2010).

argument/claim. Your claim should be specific (e.g., if you are arguing for the
legalization of euthanasia, are you arguing that it should be legalized under all
circumstances or just certain circumstances?).
▪ In the body paragraphs of your paper, provide reasons (about 3) to support your
argument/claim. Make sure to incorporate compelling evidence and various types of
appeals that we have discussed throughout the course to persuade your audience. You

argument. What should your audience do now?
