Assignment 1

Due at the beginning of class on Monday, 9/12:

Using the PEE method, present and explain a valid argument for the conclusion you defended in your in-class writing. 'Present' and 'explain' are treated as technical terms, in the sense of the in-class handout and Argument in the College. Present your argument in premise-conclusion form. Keep your explanations as brief as possible. You do not have to evaluate the argument. Practice proper citation (cite Le Poidevin). This assignment should take no less than one and no more than two pages. I suspect that this assignment will be difficult. You are not expected to master PEE-ing arguments on the first attempt. The goal of the assignment is to acquaint you with some of the concepts that we will work with to help us identify and assess arguments. Please comment to this post if you have further questions, comments, or concerns about the assignment.
