Essay #2 Argumentative Analysis
Essay at a Glance
In Essay 2, we will be learning how to determine what makes evidence credible. In order to develop these skills, you will analyze an issue from multiple perspectives and identify elements that lead to credibility and apply them to your paper. In your essay, you will assert if the authors’ claims are sufficiently supported by the evidence. The truth of the authors’ claims will be examined through closely reading and understanding the text(s), choosing strong specific examples to examine the effectiveness of the authors’ support, and explaining how the authors’ specific examples and evidence do or do not support their claims.
