BEFORE YOU POST: You might want to review the lists of verbs that we worked with last week. You can find them by clicking on this link. Also, obviously, read the two articles listed on the syllabus for today:
“Student Debt is Transforming the American Family” The New Yorker September 2, 2019
By Hua Hsu
“Are Student Loans The Next Mortgage Crisis?” Forbes December 11, 2019
By Zach Friedman
WHAT TO POST: For this post, please compare and contrast the arguments of the two authors in 300 words, much as you did last week. Again, use at least two of the verbs included from the list; this time, however, rather than introducing the writer's argument alone, please include at least one quote from each of the articles that you introduce using verbs from our verb list.
PRO-TIP: As you select what to quote, think about what you are trying to do: you want me to understand what the argument of each article is and to understand how the compare/contrast with each other. So select your quote or quotes accordingly.
FINALLY, once you've written your 300 words on the two articles, add a sentence or two more that tells me whether or not either of these two articles could serve as a resource for your research project and the question you are trying to answer. They might not, but they might. Part of learning how to conduct and write about research is knowing if a source is valuable to your project.
You are not required to respond to your classmates for this post.
