ESPM 1202 People, Land, and Water: Systems under Stress Spring Semester 2018 Critical Evaluation of Literature Assignment Due: Tuesday, January 23 at Noon Assignment In this assignment you will read two articles written about Hypoxia in Gulf of Mexico by two different advocacy groups. Perspective 1 and Perspective 2 You will see quite different perspectives on the same issue. Your goal is not to try to decide who is right, but rather to analyze their arguments critically, looking for any possible logical errors in their arguments as they try to persuade you to their point of view. For each perspective article, do the following: 1.Identify the author (person and/or organization) and speculate as to the motive that they had for writing this article. In other words, why do they want to persuade you? 2.Identify any logical errors (from the list on the last page) that you might be able to find in the two articles. Identify the logical error and cite the specific part of the article where the logical error is made. 3.Each article is trying to persuade you to a rather specific point of view.
