For this essay, you will select one of the assigned readings and write a classical argument that deals with the topic addressed in the work. In essence, you will either agree or disagree with the main theme/claim/statement of the work. Again, your thesis should be a claim, and it should be debatable and defendable. Unlike Essay 1, in this essay you are required to use evidence outside of your own personal experience to make your argument. You should select sources that are relevant, trustworthy, and academic. Remember that ethos and logos are the heart of a solid argument, and pathos should be used with diligence.
