Article Analysis

Description

For this assignment, write a critical response to one of the articles listed below. Your essay should a) highlight the major ideas of the piece and b) respond to it based upon your assessment of how it works and/or does not work as an argument.
For this assignment, you are required to include works cited page, containing your chosen article and whatever other outside sources you use. Also, any direct quotations, summaries, or paraphrases must be cited parenthetically.

• Thoreau’s “Civil Disobedience” (D2L)
For this assignment, you should also bring in one outside source to help you inform and support your response. It may be a source that supports the writer’s argument, or it may present a counterargument. Whichever you choose, don’t just insert the source briefly and then move on—spend some time synthesizing the source, talking about it and why/how it relates to the original argument and using it to make your own argument.
Important Note: Support your assertions with evidence from the text. Any time you make an assertion in your critical response, be sure it goes beyond just being your opinion. Lastly, use your feedback from me on Critical Response #1 to help you address any previous issues.
