III. Identifying premises and conclusions in 5 of these arguments.
Post I. Answer the following questions.
III. Determine which of the following passages contain arguments and which do not.
Find something from your everyday life that reminds you of something that we’ve discussed in class or you read about in our text. This can be a radio/TV/print/Internet article, advertisement, news item, entertainment piece, Youtube clip, Facebook post, etc. Write a 300 word analysis of the example. Explain the context of your example and answer some of the following questions. Why is it interesting? In what ways is this example related to what we have discussed in class or what you’ve read in our textbook? Why did you choose it (that is, do you like the source it came from, do you come across it during lunch one day and think it appropriate, etc.)? Really think about your example and why you find it interesting.
