Project #96495 - making an argument

For this assignment, enter the education conversation and respond to the following in the 21st century does a college education matter? Why or Why not? You must support you argument with at least two sources in the "Education" section. Only essays listed on the syllabus can be used.

Things to think about:

1. Your task is not as simple as agreeing or disagreeing with one of the authors we've read. Rather, you need to figure out for yourself whether or not a college education matters in the 21at century and then support your point of view effectively.

2. Review what the authors have to say. Make sure you understand and can summarize their arguments. Then think about whether you are or disagree with their positions and why. How do their ideas influence your own point? Mark passages that reinforce your ideas- in agreement or disagreement-- as you read

3. Next, consider how these ideas are similar to each other, but also consider how they are different. Think about how using them together provides a fuller picture of the point you want to make.

4. Finally bring these ideas together to form your argument (your thesis). This argument should summarize the point you want to make in your paper, the conclusion you want your reader to reach with you, the goal you hope to accomplish.

5. Each of your body paragraphs should clearly help you prove/support you argument. Don’t forget about P.I.E. Use quotations to define terms and concepts and to offer examples of those ideas that reinforce your position.

THINGS ILL BE LOOKING FOR:
