Frequently, before a writer can publish a piece they need to demonstrate this knowledge of the issue and the positions taken on it to an editor in order to prove they know enough to write a piece on the topic. For this assignment, I will be asking you to do the same thing. You will be writing a proposal to the imaginary editor (me) of an educational publication like those we have been reading in PHG, RRA, and in your library annotations. Your goal here is to convince me that you understand the positions taken on your topic, how they think about each others' positions, and where you think your own position fits in. This paper will require, then, that you draw off all the skills learned in the previous papers: critical reading, summary, analysis, and a bit of persuasion. (Much of this proposal, as an added benefit, may make its way into your final paper as well.)
