For your final essay, in place of a final exam, your task is to make the argument for your final grade.
Everything you have learned this semester applies to this last argument: claims, warrants and evidence. Pay careful attention to the introduction and conclusion, and spend some time focusing on the mechanics and grammar, actively looking for the kinds of problems I have been identifying in your previous work.
Use all your knowledge about logic and fallacies, and remember that I have access to much of the information too. But I don’t have access to all of the information. So don’t ignore the fact, for instance, that you missed three of the online assignments about logical fallacies or were absent 10 times. Instead explain these anomalies. Maybe a plea for mercy or pity will work (there’s a name for that fallacy).
Unlike previous assignments, there is no word limit here. Your essay may be as long or as short as you believe necessary. The shortest essay I have received on this assignment was two sentences long, and the longest was over 2,000 words.
