Essay 2 Assignment
Select one of the speakers from Intelligence Squared debate, “Bush 43 is the Worst President of the Last 50 Years,” and analyze their persuasiveness. Using the video and transcript, highlight two issues from the speaker of your choice and analyze the effectiveness of their argument and persuasive techniques. Include a third issue that was raised by another speaker, to either support or argue your original stance. Every argument you make must be supported with factual evidence, and all quotes must include a proper MLA citation. As exemplified this semester, quotes must be woven into your own argument. A simple summary of someone else’s argument will not earn you a passing grade. Your goal is to prove and persuade your reader, not just piggyback on what has already been said. Add to the conversation with original ideas. Your paper must include a clear, direct, and original thesis statement for the argument you’re making. If your thesis statement is inadequate, you will not receive a passing grade.
