•Primary text: Garbology by Edward Humes•Supplementary texts: Neurogeology: The Anthropocene’s Inspirational Power” by Christian Schwägerl and  “A Safe Operating Space for Humanity” by Johan Rockström, et al.  Assignment: This assignment asks you to write an argument by developing a main claim that addresses the course theme. Use evidence from 1) Hume’s Garbology, 2) Schwägerl’s article, and 3) Rockström, et al’s article to support your argument. Hume’s book is the primary text under consideration in your argument although you must use all three texts. Include an original, multi-dimensional, and arguable main claim, subclaims, reasons, evidence, warrants, acknowledge and response, and analysis with minimal summary.  The paper should demonstrate an awareness of audience, use appropriate organization and development, clearly articulate your ideas, use correct mechanics, and follow MLA conventions for citations and format. Include a Works Cited page, which will not count toward the paper minimum.  The incorrect use of MLA will impact the paper grade.  Review: The reader appendix and A Writer’s Reference tabs C, A, S, W, and MLA.Additional Considerations Overall: ! Produce a cohesive argument that is thoughtful, thorough, and accurate.  ! Be concise and specific, not general or vague, in your writing. ! Use summary sparingly. ! Use all three texts as evidence.! Avoid a discussion of the author’s intention. In the same vein, do not analyze the rhetorical modes of persuasion including ethos, pathos, logos, kairos, or telos. ! The book is a primary source and where you will find the vast majority of your evidence.! Do not consult or use texts beyond the three required for this assignment.  ! Include a MLA-style Work Cited page, which does not count toward the word minimum. ! Follow the directions for a Work Cited page in A Writer’s Reference. Do not exceed the maximum word length. If the paper is longer than the word maximum, the remainder of the paper will not be read.  Introduction:! Provide an overview of your topic in your introduction.  ! Main claims are typically located at the end of the introductory paragraph. Claims should be original, multi-dimensional, arguable, and address your approved topic. ! Look at A Writer’s Reference and The Craft of Research for helpful suggestions. Body Paragraphs:! Each paragraph should contain the elements of argument.  In other words, each paragraph will have one or more subclaims, reasons, enough appropriate evidence to support the subclaims, and analysis that explains the connection between the evidence, subclaims, and possibly the main claim.  When appropriate, include an explicit warrant that links the subclaims, reasons, and evidence. ! Subclaims are typically located at the beginning of the body paragraphs and are subsequently supported by evidence and analysis.! As always, use specific evidence that includes short quotations or paraphrasing and page numbers.  Attribute ideas, quotations, and information as necessary. ! Look at A Writer’s Reference under the MLA tab for MLA citation and format conventions.Conclusion: ! Wrap up your argument.  There are several ways that you might wrap it up, including a brief reference to your theme, restatement of your main claim, and a quick recap of the kinds of evidence you used.  ! Look at A Writer’s Reference and the Reader Appendix for helpful suggestions.
