TH07 - Writing as Fighting: Students, Argument, and Local Politics 
November 17, 2011   2:00pm - 3:15pm
  Audio / Video / Slides

Arguments can be compelling when writers aim at specific audiences, fully acknowledge the opposition, and move toward practical approaches to issues. Each participant in this session will identify a pressing local issue and build a practical frame for addressing it. In this way, we’ll discuss challenges our students face in their efforts to participate in local politics. This presentation will focus on features of argument essential to civic engagement—audience, the opposition, middle ground argument, and writing an argument based on a microhistory.
