Scholarly Arguments

In the Week 1 Presenting Arguments assignment, you objectively and neutrally evaluated reasoning on each side of your question from non-scholarly sources. For this assignment, you will objectively and neutrally evaluate and present the reasoning from scholarly sources on the same question. For an example of how to complete this paper, take a look at the Week Three Example  paper.

Conduct research from scholarly sources on each side of your issue and write a paper that includes the following:

· Introduction (approximately 100 words)

· Explain your topic and state the specific question that you are addressing (be sure to incorporate any relevant feedback you got from the instructor on your first paper).

· Presentation of an Argument

· Describe the scholarly source on one side of the issue and summarize the key points made. (approximately 100 words)

· Present what you see as the main argument from that source in standard form, with the premises listed above the conclusion. (approximately 100 words)

· Evaluate the quality of the reasoning in this source. You may address questions such as: How adequately the article supports the premises with research and how strongly the premises of the argument support the truth of the conclusion. (approximately 200 words)

· Presentation of an Opposing Argument

· Describe the scholarly source on the other side of the issue and summarize the key points made. (approximately 100 words)

· Present what you see as the main argument from that source in standard form, with the premises listed above the conclusion. (approximately 100 words)

· Evaluate the quality of the reasoning in this source. You may address questions such as: How adequately the article supports the premises with research and how strongly the premises of the argument support the truth of the conclusion. (approximately 200 words)

· Evaluation of Arguments in Non-Scholarly and Scholarly Sources (approximately 200 words)

· Discuss the differences in the quality of the reasoning or in the degree of support in the sources that you analyzed (Scholarly and Popular Resources (1) (Links to an external site.)).

· Some specific types of questions you might address here include: Who is the target audience? What types of motives may be influencing these authors? Discuss any logical fallacies in any of the sources.

· Conclusion (approximately 50 words)

· Reflect on how this activity might influence how you conduct research in the future.
