I am having trouble picking two oppossing views in the world today. HEre is the assignment. Any suggestions will help.
Conduct a search through the Opposing Viewpoints Resource Center database in the University Library. From the list of popular searches, select two topics that spark your interest. Review the available materials for each topic. When finished, you should have two sources for each of the two topics.
Use the form in Appendix E to critically analyze your sources. Fill out one form for each source.
Address the following for each of the sources you analyze:
• Identify the principal issue presented by the source.
• Identify any examples of bias presented by the author. If none exist, explain how you determined this.
• Identify any areas that are vague or ambiguous. If none exist, explain how you determined this.
• Do you find the source credible? Explain your reasoning.
• Identify and name any rhetorical devices used by the author. If none exist, explain how you determined this.
• Identify and name any fallacies used by the author. If none exist, explain how you determined this.
• State one argument made by the author.
• Identify the premises and conclusion of the argument.
• Is the author’s argument valid or invalid, sound or unsound, strong or weak? Explain how you determined this.
• Does the author use moral reasoning? If not, explain how you determined this.
Sorry, but we have no access to the Resource Center in your University Library OR Appendix E.
You can get ideas from the following GOOGLE Search:
