Question Description

I need support with this Writing question so I can learn better.

Evaluating an Author’s Use of Evidence

The Prompt

The second unit for our course focuses on millennials and how the ever-evolving world around us has affected this particular generation. In his article, Joel Stein argues that most of these effects are negative—millennials are lazy, entitled, and technology-obsessed. For your second essay, you will discuss Stein’s article and analyze its use of evidence to support the claims the writer makes. Your essay should do the following:

  1. Introduce the article and discuss its rhetorical situation (author, audience, context, etc.)
  2. Discuss the article’s main argument and some of its most important or interesting claims.
  3. Identify at least two different kinds of evidence Stein uses and provide examples. Then evaluate these examples, focusing on how strong or weak you think this evidence is and how likely it is to convince Stein’s audience.
  4. Conclude by discussing the text overall and whether or not you think Stein makes an effective, convincing argument.


Your final essay portfolio should include a copy of your rough draft along with two completed peer review worksheets.

MLA format. This requires: Times New Roman size 12 font, double spacing, 1 inch margins, appropriate heading and page numbers, correct in-text citations, and a Works Cited page.

At least 4-5 full pages, not including Works Cited page.
