This assignment is designed to teach you to structure an effective argument in response to a specific topic. It also asks you to practice careful, critical reading and argumentation. Upon completion, you should be familiar with:

  • The elements required for an effective, argumentative reading response.
  • Introducing a source text with author’s name, article title, and publication date.
  • Using MLA Citation to document sources.
  • Summarizing a writer’s main idea.
  • Clearly articulating your own point of view effectively for your audience.
  • Explaining and supporting your point of view using examples and sources.


For this essay, you will write an argument in response to the issue of a liberal arts education at the university. Considering Sanford J. Unger’s article, “The New Liberal Arts,” and the supplementary articles on similar topics (Fallows, TBA, and TBA), determine what you think about liberal arts education. Make an argument that answers this question: Given your experience and background, how do you think a university education in America today should balance liberal arts and professional training?
