addiction is a brain disease
The goal of this essay is for you to compare, contrast, and then to finally to share your position at the end of the essay. In your essay you will summarize the Americans’ position – THE AMERICANS ARE YOUR CURRENT TEXTBOOK AUTHORS, you will summarize the Australians’ research on the possible other explanation about addiction, making sure to look at the benefits of each position and the contradictions and then you will take your position – not your opinion, but your position based upon your analysis of the material.
You are expected to use your best grammatical construction, utilizing the rules of APA for organization, formatting, citation, and references. For this essay, you may use 1 1/2 spaces between lines instead of double space because you have to answer the question(s) in two pages. This means you will have to truly know your material, write with purpose, succinctly and clearly. The references will be on separate page and not considered to be one of the two pages. The 15 points will be divided between the American (YOUR AUTHORS) position (4 points), the Australian position (4 points), your position (4 points) and the APA formatting and style (3 points).
