NOV 08: Causal Argument

Causal Argument and Causal Rewrite

Portfolio Task


The Causal Argument is your first Portfolio Task. You will produce three short Arguments, 1000 words each, (the Definition, Causal, and Rebuttal Arguments) all of which will contribute to your 3000-word Researched Persuasive Argument. The Short Arguments AND their Rewrites will be essential components of your end-of-semester portfolio.

For this assignment:

  1. Post a 1000-word Causal Argument with citations to your scholarly research and a References section in APA style. Call it Causal—Username.
  2. At the same time, COPY AND PASTE the contents of your Definition Argument to a second post identical to the first. Call it Causal Rewrite—Username.
  3. Make NO CHANGES EVER to your Causal post.
  4. Ask for Feedback and make all revisions to your Rewrite post.
