Purpose: Ok, now you’ve completed your Creative Introduction/Objective summary of ONE of the essays listed above. Essay #3 is an extension of that shorter paper. Please use the SAME essay you wrote Essay #2 on for this assignment. Read the essay again, just for review. Then, complete the writing task below.
Assignment: In a well-organized and detailed essay:
Provide an engaging introduction and clear, concise, objective summary of the selected essay. Take the comments/suggestions provided for Essay #2 and apply them for Essay #3.
Then, evaluate and critique the essay, evaluating the strength and effectiveness of the argument.
What audience or reader does the writer(s) aim this essay for? How does the tone of the argument achieve this?
How successful is the author(s) at supporting their main argument (central claim) and key positions? Is there enough evidence offered? What types of evidence IS offered?
What rhetorical strategies or techniques does the author(s) use to convince/reach the reader?
Does the author(s) make any generalizations? Do they commit any logical fallacies or ineffective arguments?
What action or decision does the author(s) want the reader to take or make? Or, is their argument completely neutral?
Finally, join the conversation/discussion of the topic. Take a position agreeing or disagreeing with the author(s) and support your position. If you agree with the author(s), provide new evidence or experience to lend your position credibility. Don’t, however, simply restate his/her position. If you disagree with the author(s), find ways to strengthen you own claims, or even discredit him/her by using his own words and statements. Be sure to avoid any statements such as “I believe,” in my opinion,” “I think,” or “I feel.” Your argument shouldn’t be written from the 1st person perspective.

Reminder: Recognize that SOME of the essays were written by journalists, thus they might have a slightly different purpose than another writer. Was their purpose simply to inform the public about an issue, or does the essay offer/suggest/direct the reader to a certain position?

Criteria for evaluation: This paper should be about 5-6 pages, TYPED, DOUBLE-SPACED, and conform to all rules of MLA format. Also, you should have a works cited page included with your paper. Any outside sources must be included in your works cited page.
