Career Choice Arguments
Imagine you are at a point in life where you must select a career. You are evaluating the following arguments:
? Your mother: “You should consider a career in education. It is the best way to make a difference in the world.”
? Your father: “You should consider a career in business. You will have infinite career options.”
? Your best friend: “You should consider a career in information technology. No other degree concentration is as innovative.”
Create a 5- to 8-slide Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation in which you evaluate the choice of a career. Include the following:
? Identify the two most compelling arguments that were presented. List one that had a logical error in it but which you still thought was important.
? Were there any errors in truth with the argument? Describe what those errors were and what made them errors. Were there any errors in validity with the argument? Describe what those errors were and what made them errors.
? Revise the argument so that it removes all errors. Restate it in a logically sound way.
? Outline the steps you would use to evaluate an argument.
