Step One: Evaluate the Argument

a. Identify the issue that is addressed in the argument.

b. Explain the argument and identify the premises and
conclusions.

c. Evaluate the argument. ◦ If the argument has a
deductive component, is it valid and sound? Why?


◦ If the argument has an inductive component, is it
strong or weak? Why?

◦ Remember that arguments often contain both inductive
and deductive components. Do your best to identify all the arguments that are
used to support the position presented in the piece.


Step Two: Create a
Counterargument

a. Create a counterargument to the original argument. ◦
Present premises that support your own position while also pointing out the
weaknesses inherent in the original argument. Avoid the use of fallacious
reasoning and anecdotal evidence.

◦ If you are using inductive arguments, make sure that
they are strong. If you are using deductive arguments, make sure that they are
valid and attempt to provide sound premises.

◦ Use factual evidence and/or logical support from at
least three scholarly sources to support your argument.

◦ This might require you to play “devil’s advocate.”
Remember that you do not need to agree with the position for which you argue.
You may need to take on an opposing position to your own personal view and
argue from that position. Critical thinkers are able to take on opposing
perspectives and identify the strongest arguments from those perspectives.

Written Assignment ◦ Must be 1100 to 1400 words in
length, excluding the title page and reference page(s).

◦ Must include at least three scholarly sources to
support the counterargument.

◦ Must be formatted according to APA 6th edition style
