The task here is specifically oppose at least one of the primary arguments advanced in the book The Upside Of Stress. Please understand that NOT looking for a close textual critique of form and strategy in the book this time (though you’ll probably need to engage in some textual critique of form and strategy in order to bolster your opposition to the book’s primary argument, of course).
The purpose of this assignment is to demonstrate and mastery in identifying primary argument models and in building a credible and convincing issues-driven argument of your own using (one of the) standard modes of rhetorical argumentation. Below is a description of the essay assignment.
It is imperative that you take a clear position in opposition to the primary argument put forth in your book, and then use references to the text and any secondary resources you wish to help you make your oppositional argument. Figure out what the author’s main argument is and then oppose it – that’s the task.
Be very, very careful not to create an essay that takes the same position as your author, as those kinds of essays quickly devolve into summary retellings of the narrative instead of textual or ideological critique of it. Also, be quite careful that you do not engage in a sustained thesis driven critique of only form and strategy in the work.
Again, you’ve written close textual critique of argument form and strategy . It’s asking you to do something else, and something very specific: take your own ideological position that clearly refutes the author’s, and then defend your position with textual references to your book as well as any secondary sources you wish.
The introduction attempts to contextualize your thesis formulation by introducing the source text along with summarizing its primary arguments for the reader.
The thesis formulation at the end of the opening paragraph lays out a clear subjective position of your own on the principal argument(s) espoused in your source text. It will be an explicit critique of one of the main positions taken in your source text.
The internal body paragraphs all follow the same pattern:
Open with a subjective argument claim that’s linked to your thesis, not a summary description of the text or a lead-in to a textual reference
Illustrate and support your subjective claim with analysis, explanation, and textual references (that are correctly parenthetically cited) that tie us back to your thesis formulation
Close with concluding statements that reinforce (without actually repeating) the main positions explored in the paragraph while also transitioning us to the next paragraph discussion after it
Remember to keep your language in 3rd person, present tense throughout – while I understand you’ll be advancing your own ideas, present them as settled, objective truth set in 3rd person, present tense speech. There should be no second person speech (you, your) or 1st person speech (I, me) anywhere in your writing. The argument you’re making is a formal one, and it’s about ideas, not you. Take special care to eliminate all references to you, your, I or me. Keep your focus on the ideas and the work, not you or I. Essays written in first or second person will fail and will not be subject to a revision option.
