Answers are expected to engage with prompt thoroughly: identify critical terms, explain the concepts you are using, and cite relevant sources to defend your arguments. Answers should each be 2-pages, double-spaced, Times New Roman, 12-point font, and 1-inch margins.
Each answer will be graded based on clarity, precision, and inventiveness.
Clarity refers to the ease of reading. Does the syntax/grammar distract from the content being provided? Does the paper provide topic sentences that summarize the claims? Does the evidence have a clear connection to the claim? Tip: Read back your sentences out loud after writing them to help test readability.
Precision refers to the accuracy of the source material. Do the references to source material apply a reasonable description? Does the paper contain the various checkpoints in the outline? Does the paper use unnecessary language? Tip: Avoid beginning sentences with referent pronouns (it, its, them, their).
Inventiveness refers to creativity in argumentation. Does the paper show some element of novelty? Do the connections between claims and evidence express additional meaning to the source material? Does the language utilize different tropes from the source material? Tip: Consider how the language explains abstract concepts in more concrete terms (metaphor, simile, etc).
The question for this prompt is….
What is Fisher’s critique of the Rational World Paradigm, and what alternative does he provide? Explain key features, limitations, and presumptions.
