Argue a point. Take a stand. Correct a misconception. Refute an argument or belief. Question an assumption. This assignment asks you to form a position on an issue that is meaningful to you by listening to the conversation surrounding the issue, articulating your position, and using good reasons to explain why you have taken your stance.
To take a side on a subject, you should first establish the arguability of a topic that interests you. Ask yourself the following questions to ensure that you will be able to present a strong argument:
Is it a real issue, with genuine controversy and uncertainty?
Identify an interesting issue that you feel needs to be rethought, explored, and argued about. Explain why the issue needs to be addressed, and translate your stance (or position) into a thesis statement. Support your position with good reasons (specific details and examples).
For this assignment, you will want to demonstrate “genuine argument” or “a position that is devoted to understanding the reasonable differences that divide people and using this understanding to clarify the issues” (Trimbur). Thus, for this assignment you will examine and respond to arguments started by others, exploring what claims have and have not been made about a certain issue as you articulate and explain your own position.
