Analyzing a Sample Argument – 20 Pages

In the textbook, review the student essay on p. 199, “Allowing Guns on Campus Will Prevent Shootings, Rape.” In an abbreviated format, the sample contains the elements that you will be including in your Course Project. The controversial subject matter (the content) may engage you right away. This is a sign that the writer is applying an argumentative strategy. Focus on the organization. What do you notice about the way the topic is introduced? How will your draft be similar or different?  What was the author’s intro strategy? What are some other intro strategies?…

Organizational Patterns in Argument – 22 Pages

Review each selection and include in your post responses to these questions. What do you notice about how each is organized and presented? What kinds of appeals to the audience does each author use? How are sources used in text?

Reading Strategy Note: Unlike summary and paraphrase, which require close reading, for this discussion use the reading strategy of skimming. Carefully read the introductory paragraph, but then move quickly, reading only the topic sentence of each paragraph. The goal is to compare and contrast the differences in the presentation of the information in the document. Skim and review until you have an impression you can share in the discussion.

I am mostly concerned with the citing of sources in these essays.  There are 3 ways to cite:

1. You can put the info in the sentence itself. Example:  According to Jones, 2013, there are many ways to do it.

2. You can put part of the info in the sentence, and the other part in parentheses.  Example:  According to Jones, there are many ways to do it (2013).

3. You can put the entire citation in parentheses.  Example:  There are many ways to do it (Jones, 2013).
