Please note that this forum has several parts, so read these instructions carefully.
In this forum, upload your thesis statement (a complete sentence) and a brief outline for the critical evaluation essay. Mark Twain “The Damned Human Race”
Then, discuss how you plan to show how your chosen author uses ethos, pathos, logos, etc. Choose one specific example of this support, and explain how it was effective in the essay's argument. Cite this example correctly using MLA style documentation. Please do not take this directly from your essay. This is an informal discussion.
Finally, consider the following. During this section of the course you evaluated an essay. How can this sort of critical evaluation of another author’s work be used in future courses at APUS?
In your responses, find a classmate who chose a different argument than yours. Do you agree with your classmate’s discussion? See if you can find a different example of where support is used within that chosen essay (or point out a possible fallacy to your classmate). Continue this conversation over a few days. Also, if you find that your chosen classmate has misunderstood the critical evaluation essay instructions (incorrectly summarizing the essay or giving historical/ biographical information rather than offering a critical examination of the work), please help that student get back on track.
