Okay, you may find yourself stuck at home, without the face-to-face interaction with your instructor that you'd been hoping to get. You may have an academic essay to finish as part of your degree program, but no TA help. Or you might have an article that you've promised to write, and now you won't be able to ask your supervisor any of those questions that you're too shy to put in an email. Or you could be a mom with a student at home who you are trying hard to support. This blog speaks to all of you about how to think about METHODOLOGY when it comes to academic writing.
As we all know, the point of an argumentative essay is to prove one’s thesis. The way in which that is done is by providing evidence to support points that all add up to support the thesis.
Arguments exist everywhere in the world around us. These are sometimes not made by logically backing up points with meaningful proof and evidence. Therefore, it is up to us to figure out what tools and tricks are constantly being used on us to convince us of one thing or another. Let's go over how to spot logical fallacies.
Academic writing - articles, dissertations, theses - have various scholarly conventions. Sometimes our professors, advisors, and journal editors are very good at communicating these conventions. Sometimes not so much. It's important to me to see scholars be successful in communicating their thoughts and research, so in whatever way I can, I want to help. The help in this blog goes through creating an "account" or "extended background."
