Assignment: Annotated bibliographies can take a variety of forms, but for MCWP 125, you are required to analyze the arguments of ten sources (125-150 words), assess how those sources fit into the academic discussion surrounding the topic (100-125 words), and reflect on source relationships and how you plan to use sources in your research argument (100-125 words). In order to successfully complete the AB:
In the first paragraph of each entry, analyze the argument by briefly indicating the focused topic and identifying in your own words the claim, reasons/sub-claims, types of evidence used, and warrants.
In the second paragraph of each entry, assess source contexts by indicating how each source fits into the academic discussion surrounding an issue/topic. What is the purpose/intention of the source and what are its limitations? Who is the intended audience? What does the publication (publisher, media, date) and authorship of the source tell you about context and credibility?
In the third paragraph, reflect on how the source has shaped your approach to your topic. What role will the source play in your potential argument? What are some key relationships between texts that have a bearing on your project? You must put each source in conversation with other SPECIFIC sources in every entry—how do they build off of each other, challenge each other, complicate each other, etc?
Use MLA 8th edition (2016) citation style for bibliographic information • Use 1 inch margins, Times New Roman 12-point font, double-spacing for MLA entries, and single- spacing for AB paragraph content.
During our time together, we had two guest speakers. What did you learn from them about working with children during a time of challenges and change. Use past articles to support your understanding of best practices to address the developmental needs of children (teacher support, family support, environment, etc). I recommend you re-read some of the articles that impacted your thinking..
What did the educators do to connect with the children? Families?
What learning was being demonstrated by the children? How did they know learning was taking place or not?
What did the educators know about the children and child development?
How did they adjust for change and challenges?
What do you think is needed when working with children? What understanding will be of most valuable to you as you work with children and families?
Reflect on what you have learned in this course about how to construct high-quality arguments for positions. Give an example of how the ability to think logically and to construct good arguments could help you in your career and your daily life. In what ways will the skill of being able to evaluate the quality of reasoning on all sides better enable you to discover what is true and to make better choices? (Feel free to reference the specific area of life that you raised in your post your introduction in Week 1.)
Finally, consider the argument you have been developing for your writing assignments. How have fairly considering multiple points of view helped you clarify your own perspective? What advice would you give to people to help them understand issues more clearly and objectively while being fair to all sides? Feel free to comment on any other values you have gained from this course so far.
Your journal entry must be at least 300 words. You do not need to follow APA Style for this journal entry, but you should proofread your work to eliminate errors of grammar and spelling.
My Intro post from week 1
“There are a lot of areas in my life that could be improved with critical thinking. However, one in particular would be my role in leadership. As a Lending Officer (LO), I am always faced with issues. And it is my job to address the issues, evaluate it, and present solutions. In the first year of my current position, I realized that the difference between a successful LO and a non-successful one is the ability to think rationally and clearly in any given situation. Critical thinking is extremely important for my career and all other areas of my life.”
Once you learn the names of the major logical fallacies, you will probably start noticing them all over the place, including in advertisements, movies, TV shows, and everyday conversations. This can be both fascinating and frustrating, but it can certainly help you to avoid certain pitfalls in reasoning that are unfortunately very common. This exercise gives you a chance to practice identifying fallacies as they occur in daily life.
Prepare: Read through Chapter 7 of the course text, paying special attention to learning the names of common fallacies, biases, and rhetorical tricks.
Reflect: Search through common media sources looking for examples of fallacies. Some common places to find fallacies include advertisements, opinion pieces in news media, and arguments about politics, religion, and other controversial issues. You may also notice fallacies in your daily life.
Write: Present three distinct informal logical fallacies you have discovered in these types of sources or in your life. Make sure to identify the specific fallacy committed by each example. Explain how the fallacies were used and the context in which they occurred. Finally, explain how the person should have presented the argument in order to avoid committing this logical error.
