The final project argument options reading

In your written component of the Final Project, you will analyze an argument in relation to a specific issue. Then, you will respond to that argument by providing a counterargument. Please choose one reading or media artifact from the Final Project Argument Options. Be sure to choose an issue in which you are interested and for which you have enough factual evidence to create a strong argument.

Complete the steps below based on your chosen argument:

Step One: Evaluate the Argument

  1. Identify the issue that is addressed in the argument.
  2. Explain the argument and identify the premises and conclusions.
  3. Evaluate the argument.
    • If the argument has a deductive component, is it valid and sound? Why?
    • If the argument has an inductive component, is it strong or weak? Why?
    • Remember that arguments often contain both inductive and deductive components. Do your best to identify all the arguments that are used to support the position presented in the piece.

Step Two: Create a Counterargument

  1. Create a counterargument to the original argument.
    • Present premises that support your own position while also pointing out the weaknesses inherent in the original argument. Avoid the use of fallacious reasoning and anecdotal evidence.
    • If you are using inductive arguments, make sure that they are strong. If you are using deductive arguments, make sure that they are valid and attempt to provide sound premises.
    • Use factual evidence and/or logical support from at least three scholarly sources to support your argument.
    • This might require you to play “devil’s advocate.” Remember that you do not need to agree with the position for which you argue. You may need to take on an opposing position to your own personal view and argue from that position. Critical thinkers are able to take on opposing perspectives and identify the strongest arguments from those perspectives.

Choose one of the options below to present your argument evaluation and counterargument.
