Planning an Argument

Argument Type Two

All semester we have looked at various theories of how adolescents develop. In this paper, position yourself among these theories, either agreeing with one or combining different aspects of others, and creating a theory of your own. Make sure your theory of adolescent development is well supported by the course texts.

What type of argument is this?

Correct! This assignment clearly uses words like "position" as well as implying that your audience expects a theory of adolescent development. It doesn't need you to justify such theories as a viable issue to take on a position.
