Since LA100 does not focus on research skills, I ask that you not choose a topic that involves statistics, scientific studies, polls, or other research that you can't do on your own. Acceptable topics might include, "I should (remain at/transfer away from) SHU next term," or "The time I spent (working/socializing/playing a sport) has (positively/negatively) impacted my progress towards a degree from Seton Hill." Pick a topic that is complex enough that you will be able to write a "con" argument about it next week. (Hint -- try writing in support of the claim that you don *not* think is true first, and phrase it as the "pro" argument.)
Submit this assignment by writing it in Google Docs. I ask that you draft and revise it there, too, so that I can watch how your submission has developed.
During class today I will remind you how to share it with me so that I can read it. I will give you feedback there, after which you will post a revision to Turnitin.com.
