In this assignment, you will need to both engage with other authors points of view, while distinguishing and supporting your own point of view. You must write a paper making an argument with a clear thesis, in response to one of the below chapter topics:
1. SEVENTEEN: IS COLLEGE THE BEST OPTION?
2. EIGHTEEN: ARE WE IN A RACE AGAINST THE MACHINE?
3. NINETEEN: WHATS GENDER GOT TO DO WITH IT?
4. TWENTY: WHATS THERE TO EAT?
Make your own argument, the I Say (using one of the methods in Chapter 4) to the issues raised in the essays. Be sure your thesis gives your responseand be sure you do more than summarize and simply agree (Review Chapter 4). Make sure you use the sandwich method to introduce quotes (Chapter 3), make sure that you include a naysayer to show objections to your argument (Chapter 6) and address the so what? factor, why this issue matters (Chapter 7).
You must choose two essays to engage with in your paper. These essays may include any of the readings we have covered this semester (see syllabus schedule).
