Assignment 2: Comparing Sources ENG 1102
Style and format: MLA
At this point, you have read at least one article about the topic that you will be researching throughout this semester. Starting from that article, you will now have the opportunity to compare two author’s views on the same subject, and determine which author employs stronger argumentation.
Find an article written by another author that either supports or conflicts the opinion(s) of the author from the article you wrote about for our first assignment. If, for instance, your topic is embryonic stem cell research and the author of the article you read for our first assignment supports stem cell research, try and find another article—by a different author—that does not support the first article’s opinions. Or, you may want to find an article (again by a different author) that supports the first article’s author, but provides a different argument (by making different appeals, citing different types of evidence, etc.).
Think of this essay as building upon first assignment. Again, you are focusing on breaking down the authors’ arguments and explaining which author makes the better argument and why you believe one author successfully argues his or her points over the other. As mentioned above, the authors do not have to have conflicting viewpoints; however, it may help you better understand the argument surrounding your topic if you have exposure to multiple points of view.
You may use the article that you discussed in your first assignment as one of the articles for this assignment.
Keep the following questions in mind for evaluating sources & arguments:
