Purpose of the Assignment

The reading we do for the summary papers will contribute to the arguments you write for the convincing and persuading essays. Although you are unlikely to include detailed summaries of the articles you read in the final drafts of your arguing essays, detailed summaries help you analyze the arguments and organize details to support your own points. The reading and the summaries, then, will help you find a topic and organize arguments for the other essays you'll do this term.
