ENGL 102 Critical Evaluation Essay Rubric.pdf
first essay – the critical evaluation essay – is due at the end of week
three. In this essay, you will be critically evaluating a classic
argument. Do not use your forum for your essay.
Choose one argument from the historic American or global works listed
in the “Supplemental Readings” section of the course lessons. Decide
whether this argument is successful or not. If you decide this essay is
successful, discuss why. You may use the structure of the argument, the
tone, and the various types of support (ethos, pathos, and logos) as
proof of the argument’s success. Make sure that your thesis has an
introduction that contains a hook and a thesis, body paragraphs that
discuss one proof at a time (one paragraph per example), and a
conclusion. If you decide that the essay is not successful, then discuss
the fallacies that the argument makes. You are still required to have a
strong introduction (hook and thesis), body paragraphs that discuss one
fallacy at a time, and a conclusion. You may also discuss how the essay
is successful with reservations. In this case, point to both the
support and the fallacies you have found in the work.
This paper should be at least 700 words, but no more than 850. The
paper should be formatted correctly MLA style and written in third
person (do not use the words I, me, us, we, or you). The essay should
also contain citations and a works cited list. Formulate the structured
response from your own close reading of the text. Do not use outside sources (open Web) without explicit permission from the instructor.
Submission Instructions: Please submit this through the assignments link in the classroom. This assignment is due on Sunday, by 11:55 p.m., ET.
