To begin, you will use the topic you selected in the Week 1 Standard Form Arguments discussion forum and continued working with in the Week 2 Creating a Valid Argument Workshop assignment. For this assignment, you will present and evaluate reasoning from scholarly sources on both sides of your topic.
For an example of how to complete this paper, take a look at the Week Three Example Paper (Example is listed below).
Conduct research from scholarly sources on each side of your issue. The UAGC library features research Tutorials (Links to an external site.), which offer videos on getting started, understanding the research process, vetting scholarly and popular resources, and providing instruction on how to read a scholarly article.
Write a paper that includes the following:
Introduction (approximately 100 words)
1. Explain your topic and state the specific question that you are addressing.
Presentation of an Argument (approximately 200 words)
1. Describe the scholarly source on one side of the issue.
2. Present what you see as the main argument from that source (present the argument in standard form, with the premises listed above the conclusion).
Evaluation of the quality of the reasoning in this source (approximately 200 words)
You may address questions such as the following:
1. How adequately does the article support the premises of the argument?
2. How strongly do the premises of the argument support the truth of the conclusion?
3. What (if any) missing premises would be needed to complete the argument (make it valid/strong)? Are these missing premises justified or merely assumptions?
Presentation of an Opposing Argument (approximately 200 words)
1. Describe the scholarly source on the other side of the issue.
2. Present what you see as the main argument from that source in standard form, with the premises listed above the conclusion.
Evaluation of the quality of the reasoning in this source (approximately 200 words)
You may address questions such as the following:
1. How adequately does the article support the premises of the argument?
2. How strongly do the premises of the argument support the truth of the conclusion?
3. What (if any) missing premises would be needed to complete the argument (make it valid/strong)? Are these missing premises justified or merely assumptions?
Evaluation of Arguments in Non-Scholarly and Scholarly Sources (approximately 100 words)
-Discuss the differences in the quality of the reasoning or in the degree of support for premises in these scholarly sources contrasted with non-scholarly sources.
Conclusion (approximately 50 words)
– Reflect on how this activity might influence how you conduct research in the future.
Here is my work from Week 1 Discussion below.
Does the use of Social Media tend to improve or ham relationships?
1st argument
Premise 1: Social media helps people in communicating around the world.
Premise 2: Communication improves human relationships.
Conclusion: Social media improves human relationships.
2nd argument
Premise 1: Social media can decrease social interactions.
Premise 2: We need human interactions to improve relationships.
Conclusion: Social media is harming human relationships.
The two arguments present good arguments. The first argument says social media is good for relationships because it helps with communications around the world. The second argument says it is wrong because it decreases human interactions, and we need it to improve relationships. We can understand both sides of the question by being impartial and looking at the questions one by one and understanding them. But, unfortunately, it is hard to be unbiased about things like this topic. So I try to look at the bigger picture to be objective. I look into both sides to know what they have to say. Researching this topic can help others understand both sides of the questions. Knowing all the issues in a specific case can help people be more objective and promote a better life. Knowledge in things we might encounter can help us in the long run.
