Project #39446 - week 5 part 1 and 2

 

Before participating in this discussion, please make sure you have completed the readings and have comprehensively analyzed “The Raise” https://bridgepoint.equella.ecollege.com/curriculum/file/fe95bb44-ebaf-4d49-8684-082e810ad683/1/TheRaise.zip/story.htmlinteractive scenario to ensure you can fully address the prompt.

In “The Raise” scenario, you were asked to construct arguments in favor of getting a raise. Using the knowledge you gained from the “The Raise” scenario, pick something that you are passionate about and create an argument, either inductive or deductive, to present your strongest position on that issue. Present your argument in premise-conclusion form. View the following human rights videos listed under this week’s required multimedia:

  • Gem Slaves: Tanzanite's child labour - Part – 1
  • Why women count video clip collection: Southeast Asia, Pacific, Caribbean, Latin America
  • Children and human rights, part 1: Rights & wrongs – Human rights television
  • Child labor, part 1: Rights & wrongs – Human rights television

Focus your analysis on a specific contemporary human rights issue. You can use an issue from these videos or use what you learn in these videos to address another specific issue that is of interest to you.

Use the “Steps for Evaluating an Argument” template to help you structure your response. After you have completed the argument template, you will then be able to use that template to write out a narrative response in which you cover all the elements that were included in the argument template.

You must post to this discussion on at least four separate days of the week and your posts must total at least 600 words as you address the questions noted above. Your first post must be completed by Day 3 (Thursday) and the remainder of your posts must be completed by Day 7 (Monday).  You must answer all aspects of the prompt at some point during the week.  Also, be sure to reply to your classmates and instructor.  Try to attempt to take the conversation further by examining their claims or arguments in more depth or responding to the posts that they make to you.  Keep the discussion on target and try to analyze things in as much detail as you can.


Guided Response: Read the reflections of your classmates and analyze the issues that they identified. You might consider playing devil’s advocate to bring out more detail in the issue. You might also fill in areas that you felt your classmate missed. Did your classmate present a convincing argument? Why, or why not? Which part of the argument do you dispute (premise, conclusion, structure, etc.)? How might the argument be strengthened?
