Coonrod, Engl 102 PoWeR 1 Unit Three: Crafting Arguments Over the course of this semester, we’ve worked on generating questions from all sorts of different places. Research opportunities are all around us. Incidentally, so are arguments. This unit, we’ll keep on working on generating questions, but we’ll also work on crafting arguments. In particular, we’ll try to work in the idea of ‘different perspectives.’ Our work to understand other’s perspectives—and to look at things for a variety of angles—will lead us into work revolving around crafting an argument and writing persuasively. After all, in order to prove someone wrong, it’s easier to understand where they’re coming from…right? Much like our previous Units, we’ll work through free writing, research, explorations, activities, and discussion to the Unit Three project, which will challenge you to confidently take a stance on a multi- faceted idea. Again, this can be an extension of the work you have done in your previous units if you want to (example: in unit 1 you looked into how cheetos are made, in unit 2 you observed the cheetos fanatic society, and now you are going to argue that cheetos are the key to world peace), but it can be something completely new. And now, all bets are off: there are no more banned topics. Take a stand on what you believe. My only restriction is that I don’t want to see hate papers. Hatred has no place in my world view, especially in reasoned discourse and an academic setting. That doesn’t mean you can’t have a bias, but understand that a bias must be backed up with credible sources and take the opposing side into account. There is no room in this class for bullying, belittling, or flaming of another person’s ideas, beliefs, race, etc. See me or the student code of conduct in the syllabus if you have any questions. In addition to class activities, in this unit we will do the following major writing assignments. Writing is a process, and these assignments are designed to help walk you through the steps that will culminate in the unit project. Exploration One:
