New West, Old Story

27 Oct

In this Unit, you’ll build on the work you did in your previous essays by writing a 1000-1500-word essay (3-5 pages) in which you respond to an argument by a professional writer. Your task is to write back to the author after you have carefully considered his/her argument. This Unit is based on Chapter 5 (“Reading Rhetorically”) in The Allyn & Bacon Guide. We will mainly be following the “Strong Response as Ideas Critique” format on pgs. 106-108, though you can also try the “blended response” approach on pgs. 110-114. You can choose from several different texts provided below. You will choose ONLY ONE of these texts for your response to an argument.
