Project #53792 - Title: Assignment for Katherine the diagnostic essay

English 200: Diagnostic Essay

Assignment: Because you all have unique talents and needs as writers, your first assignment this semester is a diagnostic essay. The purpose of this essay is to help me gauge the strengths and weaknesses of your writing, so that I can help you get the most out of the class. Please write an essay responding to the following prompt regarding either the TED talk ("What's Wrong with What We Eat?") by Mark Bittman, or the introduction of In Defense of Food by Michael Pollan.

 

Both Bittman and Pollan make arguments regarding the food we consume. We'll explore their ideas throughout the semester; for this essay, I'd like you to examine their arguments. Pick either the TED talk or the reading to respond to.  What argument is the author or speaker making? What kind of rhetoric does he claim the food system uses, and what rhetoric does he use himself (i.e., what tools does he use to persuade his audience)? Are you persuaded by his argument? Why or why not?

 

(Here’s a link to the talk, if you want to listen to it again:
