Vocabulary for Unit FiveThese are the vocabulary words for Unit 5.  Remember to incorporate them into your Discussion Board in this unit.
Plausible       Objectivity       Substantiated
Integrity         Effusive          Superfluous
Sanction       Fabricated      Ambiguous

You should have already chosen a topic for your final essay.  Now, you need to explore the multiple viewpoints associated with that topic. Go to the discussion board and write a brief essay (450words minimum) summarizing some of the multiple viewpoints associated with that topic (for and against, pro and con).  At the end of your essay, present your own opinion on the topic in the form of a thesis statement or arguable claim.  Refer to the previous video lesson on constructing an arguable thesis to help you.

As you respond to your peers (2 replies, 100 words each), try to fill in any gaps you see in their understanding of the pros and cons of the issue.  In addition, evaluate the thesis statement.  Does it make a limited and arguable claim about the topic or issue?  If not, suggest ways to improve the thesis.

Please choose a topic:
