Discussion forum and critical evaluation essay

Part 1 (Discussion Forum): Due 16 Jan  Please note that this forum has several parts, so read these instructions carefully.  In this forum, post your thesis statement (a complete sentence) and a brief outline for the critical evaluation essay. For your critical evaluation essay, you will probably want to evaluate the same essay that you chose and discussed in last week’s Forum. In fact, The Week 2 Forum was designed to allow you to get a head start on your critical evaluation essay by first analyzing your chosen essay within Forum 2, before developing it further here, in Forum 3.  Then, discuss how you plan to show how your chosen author uses ethos, pathos, logos, etc.  Choose one original example of this support,  and explain how it was effective in the essay’s argument. Cite this example correctly using MLA style documentation.  Finally, consider the following. During this section of the course you evaluated an essay. How can this sort of critical evaluation of another author’s work be used in future courses at APUS?  

Part 2 (Essay): Due 19 Jan 2017  

Instructions: Your first essay – the critical evaluation essay – is due at the end of week three. In this essay, you will be critically evaluating a classic argument. Do not submit the rough forum draft to me as the final draft–because you will need to revise it heavily based on peer feedback first.  Choose one argument from the historic American or global works listed in the “Supplemental Readings” section of the course lessons. Decide whether this argument is successful or not. If you decide this essay is successful, discuss why. You may use the structure of the argument, the tone, and the various types of support (ethos, pathos, and logos) as proof of the argument’s success. Make sure that your thesis has an introduction that contains a hook and a thesis, body paragraphs that discuss one proof at a time (one paragraph per example), and a conclusion. If you decide that the essay is not successful, then discuss the fallacies that the argument makes. You are still required to have a strong introduction (hook and thesis), body paragraphs that discuss one fallacy at a time, and a conclusion. You may also discuss how the essay is successful with reservations. In this case, point to both the support and the fallacies you have found in the work.  This paper should be at least 700 words, but no more than 850. The paper should be formatted correctly MLA style and written in third person (do not use the words I, me, us, we, or you).  The essay should also contain citations and a works cited list based on your selected essay in the assigned readings.  Formulate the structured response from your own close reading of the text. Do not use outside sources (open Web) without explicit permission from the instructor.
