For the Cause and Effect papers, don’t describe the obvious.

Spring Break next week. Start thinking about the research paper.
Topic choice due Tuesday after Spring Break.

Our papers are going to be an argument paper. A persuasion paper is any means to convince. We cannot prove persuasion. We can prove an argument.

Critical Research Paper:
(requires proof)
(not provable)
Example: The death penalty deters crime.
Example: The death penalty is immoral.

The critical research paper is an argument paper, not a persuasion paper.

In the syllabus, items in italics with dates indicate due dates.
