Exploring Arguments

I’m trying to learn for my English class and I’m stuck. Can you help?

Arguments in Action

For Assignment 3.2, you will read and annotate or reverse outline two articles related to our question. Read both articles closely and critically to identify a main position and claims and evidence in support of the main position. Each member of your group should read a different article from the list:

What More Funding for State Universities Buys Students (https://www.nationalreview.com/2018/08/study-publi…

Pete Buttigieg argues against free college (https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2019/04/05…

Are U.S. Colleges Still A Good Investment? (https://www.investopedia.com/articles/personal-fin…

Forgiving Student Debt Would Boost Economy, Economists Say (https://www.npr.org/2019/11/25/782070151/forgiving…

The Travesty of Starving our Best Public Universities (I will send it to you through the document)

For your second article, you can use one of the articles previously engaged for context or find a new article. The second article should be explicitly connected to your position. As always, work as a group to discuss how to select the best sources to contribute to the overall goal of constructing the presentation. And consider how the article you select can work for your paper, as well.

For both articles, complete and submit the following:

  • Format the source according to a style and link to the text. • State the main position in a complete sentence with a formatted quote (or paraphrased) and a signal phrase and citation • List any claims and/or evidence offered in support of the position. • State any acknowledged oppositional positions or claims and any included refutation. • Explain how the position in the article relates to a claim or position from our topic. • Quote one piece of information from the article and explain how is could be used as context in your presentation or as evidence to support a claim (include the claim and your position).
  • In addition to uploading your responses to Canvas, include the content in the group grid and bib and any other space where your group collaborates in preparation for the Presentation Packet. Also add you content to your personal bib and grid for your Personal Packet.

    Assignment 3.2
