I found the argument resource I was looking for yesterday and couldn’t find. It is an overview of basic argument structure (thesis, reasons, evidence) and different types of evidence covered in the reading from yesterday. I also found a list of logical fallacy definitions developed by a previous class. Both are available in the “resources-writing” folder. I have uploaded the assignment sheet for your next assignment, the researched proposal and argument. The proposal component is due soon, so please take time to review the assignment sheet before class tomorrow. Show your sub you are well prepared! Thanks again for being awesome. Please do still feel free to contact me with questions/concerns.
Please remember to post reading response comments tonight by 5:00 pm!

As I mentioned in class during my Writing Lab overview, the Lab offers various workshops throughout the semester on topics related to writing and research. This coming Wednesday, the Lab will be hosting a workshop on research writing, which may be helpful to you for your next two projects (accessibility exploration and researched argument). The workshop is Wednesday, February 1st at 12:30 pm. I encourage all who can to attend.
Register here under “Workshops.” If you have never visited the Writing Lab for a workshop or tutoring session, you will have to set up your account. It does not take long at all.
Here is a flyer with more information and the dates and topics of other workshops happening this semester. FYI, there is a workshop on APA/MLA format on February 15th (before your APA formatted reports are due).
