Analyze Sources and Arguments


Homework for 10/8:

As a group, you will write a 3-5 page analytical, research-based draft/essay in which your group provides an answer to the question:

Why do the authors of the texts in the debate on X disagree?

Your group should be sure to do the following in its essay:

  • Provide background information on the issue and the debate that surrounds it.
  • Discuss the five texts your group chose to analyze.
  • Make your claim(s) in answer to the question, and provide the textual evidence from your analysis to support your claim(s).
  • End your essay with some sort of "so what?'' Show your readers, your fellow classmates and your instructor why it is useful to have this analysis and why it is important to understand how texts are constructed and how meaning is made - or not.
  • Include a References page in APA format of the sources used in your group's paper.
