evaluation of argument

Evaluation of the strength of a political argument. The argument could be one that you hear in person or saw or read on news/tv/social media. It should be 500-525 words & includes the following sections:

  • Introduction: Describe the context of the argument (e.g., heard in person at family dinner, saw on a news program on 12/1, etc.) and, if it was viewed online, provide a link to the source.
  • Statements: Diagram and present the argument in Standard Form (multiple premises and a conclusion; may include multiple premise-conclusion groups, if needed),
  • Strengths and weaknesses: Assess the strengths and weaknesses considering the speaker’s sources of information, position of authority, and good- or bad-faith approach.
