Arguments in Media. Complete this week’s “The Graduate” scenario. You will notice that there are multiple arguments presented to influence your perspective on the issue confronted in the scenario. You confront arguments every day. In our digital age, however, they do not merely happen in face to face gatherings. Media and social media are often used to convey arguments. View the examples provided in “The Graduate Scenario” activity as well as those presented in this week’s required multimedia
resources to see what arguments in the media may look like. Then, on your own, find an example of an argument from a media source. In your initial post:
Include a link or bibliographical information for the source in your discussion post.
Determine the issue that is being discussed and the conclusion that is drawn on that issue.
Explain the reasons that are given for that conclusion in the example that you identify.
Finally, explain whether or not you were convinced by the argument. If you were convinced, explain why
you found the argument strong or sound. If you were not convinced, explain why you found the argument weak and lacking.
You must post to this discussion on at least four separate days of the week, and your posts must total at least 600 words as you address this discussion. This means that, in order to receive full credit, your first post must be completed by Friday at the latest (Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday would satisfy the four-day requirement). However, we encourage you to get into the discussion early in the week and begin interacting with your classmates and professor. Remember to post on at least four separate days during the week.
Guided Response: Review your classmates’ posts. As you respond to one another, view the sources that your classmates chose to discuss. If you see reasons supporting the argument that have been overlooked, add those reasons to your discussion response. If you think that there is a different conclusion that is being presented than what your classmate described, provide that alternate conclusion. You might also consider responding to the argument that is made and supporting your responses with evidence and logical reasoning. Use evidence drawn from other sources to support your claims.
