Critical Thinking - Comprehensive Argument Analysis ...

This answer was rated:

Critical Thinking - Comprehensive Argument Analysis

Resource: The Opposing Viewpoints Resource Center database.

· Choose two topics from the Opposing Viewpoints Resource Center that interest you and
locate a set of materials from the database for each topic. If you choose school violence
as one of your topics, for example, you might find a magazine article that argues that
violence in the media causes school violence and a Web site that persuasively argues
that violence in the media is not responsible for school violence.

· Conduct a similar search for your second topic. When finished, you should have two
sources per topic. Note: You may use sources from any combination of the Viewpoints,
Magazines, Academic Journals, News (use sources marked Editorial and Column), and
Web sites database sections.

· Use the below form to critically analyze your four sources. Fill out one form for
each source (4 total).

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
· Provide the title of the source.

· Provide the source citation. Locate the citation by clicking on the Source Citation
link at the top of the page when viewing the source.

· Identify the principal issue presented by the source.

· Identify any examples of bias presented by the author. If none exist, explain how you
determined this.

· Identify any areas that are vague or ambiguous. If none exist, explain how you
determined this.

· Do you find the source credible? Explain your reasoning.

· Identify and name any rhetorical devices used by the author. If none exist, explain
how you determined this.

· Identify and name any fallacies used by the author. If none exist, explain how you
determined this.

· State one argument made by the author.

· Identify the premises and conclusion of the argument.

· Is the author's argument valid or invalid, sound or unsound, strong or weak? Explain
how you determined this.

· Does the author use moral reasoning? If not, explain how you determined this.

Reply to XXXXX XXXXX-McCorkle's Post: Hello Angela, Thank you for you reply. This is the final assignment for my Critical Thinking Class with the deadline set for this Friday (June 13). 48 hours for completion of the assignment actually exceeds my expectations.

I appreciate your help. Please let me know if you need more details in regards XXXXX XXXXX assignment.
Thanks very much. I am glad to hear you have until Friday. This way, I can get you the assignment by Wednesday so you will have time to review in case any changes are desired. Please let me know if there is a particular word requirement or any other specific details you were provided, otherwise I will just make sure the answers are thorough and that should do it. Also, I do have articles on adoption and teen pregnancy from your library which I have done similar work on in the past. Please let me know if you would like me to use these, or if you have specific articles in mind? Thanks,

Angela

Actual form that should be filled is done in MS Word since I was unsure if you will accept my question I converted it into text form (original form included below). There is no word count requirement on this assignment, however 700+ word count is what was expected on all my final assignments.

Although personally I am not good with expressing my oppinions or feelings in regards XXXXX XXXXX such as teen pregnancy or adoption, I live the choice of the topics up to you. Especially knowing you have experience with such assignments I have no doubts that you will do fabulous job.

Thank you again.
