- Read the summaries and rhetorical situation prior to each section (Families and Personal Relationships, 468-471; Modern Technology, 497-500; Education and School, 521-523; Race, Culture, and Identity, 541-544; Environment, 564-567; Immigration, 591-594, and War and Peace, 618-620).These topics will be your general issues to consider.
- Once you choose a general issue, you will want to narrow it to a more specific issue. Look at the various ways the book narrows the topic by asking issue questions. Don’t limit yourself to these possibilities; discover what interests you the most within each section. (In the next Lesson you will be submitting WA #1, the Issue Proposal, in which you will present the topic you wish to work with the remainder of the course).
Address the following points and post to the Discussion.
- Choose three topics of interest.
- Explain (briefly) why you are interested in each of the three topics.
- Narrow your list of three topics down to two.
- Narrow each of these two general topics to more specific ones and present each of these topics in the form of a question, just as they have done in “The Reader.”
- Finally, narrow your two choices down to one. Why did you choose this topic over the others?
