The purpose of the assignment is to give you an opportunity to use the skills developed throughout the unit, and in particular in the final section of the unit, to evaluate an extended argument text. You should evaluate the argument you choose using any of the methods we have covered that you consider relevant. One of the points of this assignment is to encourage concise and economical writing. Assignments that are much longer than 1500 words (not including the standardisation) will not be favourably viewed: the excess words may not be marked. Note that the course notes for weeks 10-12 include discussion of how to go about the task of analysing an argument text, and a sample evaluation. You will find a marking rubric at the end of this assignment.
