1. Revise Argument Paper
  2. Read Chapter 21, Critical Thinking in textbook

Great work in class today everyone. Final draft of the Argument paper is due Thursday by class time. Here are the requirements again:


  • 1000 to 1250 words in length.
  • One featured image. You may use more to support your argument.
  • Two sources minimum. One academic, one popular source. Can also conduct an interview as the popular source replacement.
  • Include at least one rhetorical question.
  • Clear thesis and argument. See Chapter 24
  • Claims supporting your thesis and supported by evidence/research.
  • Include a Counterargument.
  • A conclusion with a call to action.

Use Casso (p. 70) as a model if you have any questions. Incorporate the two sources as support for your argument. Use MLA for citations and include a works cited at the end of your essay. See Purdue Owl MLA for a refresher.

Remember to use the quote sandwich: introduce the quote, quote, explain the quote.
