Question Description

IA assignments need to demonstrate the following skills: strong reading comprehension, concise/accurate analysis of what the authors are saying, synthesis of multiple authors’ opinions and ideas (on a range of topics), connecting common denominators between the works (this is huge), construction of opinionated thesis/claim statements in third person voice, Aristotle’s three forms of appeal, and a clear understanding of Toulmin’s elements of argument (the language of these six elements should guide your discussion and analysis of what the authors are saying (Toulmin elements are: claim, grounds, warrant, backing, qualifiers, rebuttals). It is not necessary to approach the Toulmin elements with an exhaustive “list mentality” for every essay in the set, as though you need to thoroughly address all six elements for every essay, BUT the general language of your discussions should consist of frequent references to the most prominent elements in a naturally-flowing way.

1. Merely generalize about the essays, 2. Be highly selective/minimal as to which essays you mention and/or discuss; 3. Not incorporate specific terminology (of Toulmin and Aristotle in this case) into your discussions; 4. Write without a thesis/claim statement of your own and/or not treating these responses as third-person, issue based responses and not personal narratives

I have attached the reading to include in this essay. essay should be at least 1-2 pages but it is okay if its longer than 2 pages
