I expect two good paragraphs, a good paragraph being 8-12 sentences with unity, coherence, and authentic reflection.
In this forum, talk about an issue that is near and dear to your heart. Being as formal and as logical as you can, create a two-paragraph argument that we can follow that will help us to understand your belief in the issue. Even though this issue is important to you, aim to be as objective as possible. Remember, too, to be respectful of those in the class who may have views that differ from your own.
When you are finished typing your argument (and before you post it), click on “Use Advanced Editor” underneath your posting. Then, go back through your posting and: 1) underline the premises of your argument; and 2) highlight your conclusion in bold.
Finally, at the end of your posting, type a few sentences that comment on your argument. Does the conclusion seem to logically follow from the premises? Are there any logical holes or fallacies in your argument? How might your improve your argument?
