Planting the Seed of an Argument
MetadataShow full item record
“Planting the Seed of an Argument” is designed to accompany close-reading papers, and encourages students to center their papers around something that stood out to them in the text(s) – the seed of their interest. By following the guidelines on the handout and peer review form, students can practice focusing their writing on developing and supporting their own interpretations of specific details and may find that they become more invested in their own paper topics.
