GW II Week 2 Discussion

To prepare for this Discussion:

  • Review the materials on critical reading strategies and on the MEAL plan for paragraphs.
  • Read the provided article in the Learning Resources, noticing where the author makes claims and supports those claims with evidence.
  • Read actively, taking notes and asking questions. Consider printing the article, and using color-coding (with pens, markers, etc.) to make notes and organize your ideas.
  • Decide what kind of argument you might make based on what you’ve read.

Post your initial response that includes the following:

  • 1 sentence that states an argument you can make about the topic based on the article. This sentence will serve as the main idea in your eventual MEAL plan paragraph.
  • 2-4 sentences that explain why you have chosen this argument as a critical reader.
