Chapter 7: Making Your Own Argument

Your Turn!


This process of choosing a short, specific central document is essential to making your own university-level argument, regardless of of your discipline or faculty. Again, keeping in mind the eight-page scope, what short, specific central document might you choose if you were asked to write:

  1. A psychology essay on the impact of Youtube music videos on high school students?
    b. A history essay examining Canada’s role in World War II?
    c. A philosophy essay asking you to argue the modern applications of Plato’s Republic?
    d. An English essay asking you to discuss the role of gender in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet?
