Hopefully the weather has driven you inside and in front of your computer screen to work on writing your semester project, due this Thursday.
Remember, it is supposed to be 3-4 pages of argument (see my model below) with the two rhetorical precis on one page and a separate works cited page–all of the directions are linked under your class page on this website if you need to review the requirements.
I will be presenting on Thursday and you will sign up for a presentation slot then. To that end here is my written portion, if you would like to see a model for your own. As you read, notice:
- Most of my evidence is personal, although the hard research is used to provide context to the body of the argument. My argument is not trumped by the sources.
- I don’t yet have all 8 sources cited. There are 6, but I thought it was better to get this posted than to dwell on minor tweaks.
- Yours does not need to follow my arrangement exactly because it will heavily depend on what type of argument you are making.
- While I think this is well-written, it will not be how I present on Thursday. Clarity is king in presentations; so, I will need to simplify some parts and make them congruent with my visual.
If you have questions or comments, feel free to post a comment. Plans to come later….
