A Few Words of Advice…
Your argument should not be based on unfounded, preconceived
beliefs. Statements that start with or include “I believe that…” are only
valid to the extent that they are followed and supported by well-cited,
compelling evidence from reliable sources.
As with the other discussions in this class, your personal opinion on
the issue at hand does not matter for grading purposes. (Our
grading is not influenced by your political leanings). The point of this
discussion is to think about the (above) prompt and argue your point in
a thoughtful manner, using evidence to support your position and/or to
argue against your peers’ position(s).
