Homework:

  • READ the WP 2 assignment carefully, including the link called the Argumentative Guide.
  • Consult your Role Sheet. Choose a topic that your character would plausibly argue during the game.
  • Refer to your RTTP text, your lecture notes, and your previous research to formulate a stand on this specific topic, based on what your character would think/believe/do.
  • WRITE a proposal in which you outline what your character will speak about/take a stand on. Include some discussion about why your character would be compelled to "step up to the podium" to address this topic. Bring this as a printed copy to class on Thursday.
