Based on the reading, EAA chapters 13 and 7.
Look around your daily life, and notice how positions are taken and expressed all around you: in advertising, editorials, blog posts, reviews, Facebook, songs, conversations, etc., etc. etc. Choose one that interests you, that irritates you or wins you over. Briefly summarize it (or paste it in your comments if it's short, like an FB post, or email it to me if it's an image).
Analyze the argument, referring to what you read about in EAA:
1. What is the position the author takes? How easy or difficult was it for you to figure out?
2. Is the author responding to something someone else has said or done? How can you tell?
3. Who's arguing, and where are they coming from?
4. What's at stake?
5. Which appeals are being used (even if they don't appeal to you, personally)? Be specific: which of the three appeals (may be more than one).
6. If you were re-writing this argument for a different audience, what would you do differently?
