Criticism & Analysis
You will write a 1,200-word essay focusing on analyses and criticisms of the four articles/arguments from your first essay (so, roughly, 600 words for analysis and criticism of the pro-side and 600 words for analysis and criticism of the con-side, so about 300 words per article that you explained in Part I). You must use the sources I provide for Part II as the basis of your analysis and criticism (but you do not need to summarize those arguments).
Again, you are NOT taking a position on the issue at this stage. You are objectively analyzing and criticizing both sets of arguments that you discussed. You want to discuss the strengths of each set of arguments and their weaknesses. Your analysis and criticism of each set of arguments will be a mixture of your own assessment of the arguments, but you should show familiarity with (and directly reference) (i) the articles I provided, (ii) readings from the textbook or videos from the discussion boards, and (iii) MY LECTURES. I want to know that you are engaging with the material from this class! Do not simply give a bunch of uninformed opinions on the topics.

· Refer back to the suggestions in part one.
· Remain objective and dispassionate; you are not taking a side yet. You are treating each side of the argument respectfully and trying your best to analyze the strengths and weaknesses of each

An excellent essay …

is free from grammatical and spelling errors
is well-organized and easy to follow
is scholarly in tone and style (objective and dispassionate)
clearly and correctly analyzes all major and significant premises and conclusions of the authors’ arguments

identifies the weaknesses of the arguments and clearly explains why they are weaknesses
utilizes scholarly literature to identify criticisms of the primary arguments

I assess your essays by how they deviate from an excellent essay. I do not assign specific points to each element described above, but rather judge the essay as a whole. A relatively minor element, like grammatical errors, might become more significant if errors permeate the essay, since they can make an essay unreadable.
