You'll begin by reading several articles and tracing the key points of the debate from both sides in preparation for building your own argument. Using ideas and quotations from THREE of the above readings, take notes on key points of the debate presented by both sides. For each of these, including at least 2 key points and 2 quotations for each side of the argument. Summarize the key points of the arguments in your own words first, before quoting the passage. Use signal phrases to attribute the idea to the author (i.e. "Malcolm Gladwell argues. . . " or "According to Jane Hu . . . "): Pick passages that are best for illustrating or supporting each point of the argument. Quote the passage exactly, following MLA format, be sure to clearly cite which source each point/quote comes from by using the author's last name in parenthesis like this: (Jennings). Pick ONE of the quotes for each side and add your own response (a few sentences). Do you agree/disagree with this point/quotation? Why or why not? 1.
