Assignment Overview
These last few years have presented several social issues that are now being debated in Congress, legislatures or local governmental agencies and institutions. As a scholar, it is important that you develop awareness of these issues and have an informed opinion about them. We have also seen the debate between facts and misinformation/disinformation, and the effect of these on policies as well as people’s lives. You will select one of the designated topics , obtain research reflecting proponents and opponents of the issue, and present a clear thesis with a sustained argument around it that employs multiple rhetorical modes. You are also required to find source material, partly by using library databases, and at least one of the sources must be a peer-reviewed academic article. (EBSCO) Gale
