To the Pointhelps readers construct arguments by thinking about their own experiences, reading brief, current essays, and doing writing assignments. Thoughtful readings on fresh but significant topics provide invaluable models for writing arguments. Readings cover areas from cell phones to environmentalism, from human rights to love and marriage, from immigration to terrorism, along with five classic arguments from Plato, Jonathan Swift, Virginia Woolf, Rachel Carson, and Martin Luther King, Jr. A series of paired Pro/Con readings (Part 2) look at contemporary issues show that there is not always one right answer to a problem or question. Anyone interested in learning how to develop good arguments.
