Your Assignment

Your WSC1 assignment is to:

  • Find 10 articles on on a topic of social controversy
  • Ideally, articles should have been written within the last 6 months
    • Note that this may not always be possible. If you cannot find appropriate articles written in the last 6 months, you may have to look for articles a little bit older
    • If you are in doubt, be sure to check with Professor Montemurro
  • You will then write an argumentative paper, in which you take a position that you support with evidence from the articles you read.
