DESCRIPTION OF WRITING PRO JECTS General Description of the Strategy Exercises: Summary, Analysis, and Synthesis These assignments are designed to give you practice in  summarizing  complex accounts of controversial  issues, the positions taken on them, and the fundamental principles underlying those positions; in  analyzing  the ethical and/or political aspects involved, that is, the various proposals made by the different  interested parties and the reasoning behind the proposals; and in  synthesizing  your own approach (which  may or may not involve a definite solution) to the problem at hand. You will be asked to think and write  about your issue with a high degree of objectivity, overcoming automatic emotional reactions and  unexamined assumptions, in order to gain a deeper  understanding  of the issue in all its stubborn  complexity. The goal here is not necessarily to score points in a debate, to construct a “knock-down”  argument, or even to solve the problem in any definitive way; rather, the goal is simply to “map out” the

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
