- What is the main idea you plan to communicate? What is your claim?
- What research supports this claim?
- What background is critical to include or explain?

- Introduction to constructing an argument & Writing Assignment 3 instructions!
- Work in your proposal groups to discuss the incorporation of your research into your discussion of your theme.
- Use your freewrite to help get your conversation going, but be sure to reference specific things from your Research Journal!
- Discuss with your team whether you are interested in putting together a panel presentation, a group presentation, whether you might want to work with someone from the other section, and/or if a solo presentation would be better.
- I'll join your conversations to help out as you work on this!
- Keep track of your ideas in a place that is accessible by all members of your group; either post it on one of your wikis or create a googledoc for future additions :)
- On Monday, I'll have read all your Proposals and will get in contact with you individually about revising them for submission to the FYRC.

- Find and list the link of an example of an infographic online and explain how it is (or isn't) effective.
- Explain, using an example, why alternative perspectives are vital to making an argument of definition.
