ENG 106 Grand Canyon Week 6 Discussion 1
To whom will you address your proposal? Remember: This person (or group) will be skeptical of your views. Will it be a friend or family member with different beliefs and values related to health care and/or the human body? Are there individuals in the medical community who hold different values than you do? How about a politician or one of the authors of our readings?
What are their views on the issue of selling human organs, and what do they think should be done about it? Summarize the views of your skeptical audience as fairly and accurately as possible.
During the week, review your classmates’ summaries of their skeptical audiences’ views. How well do you think they did? Were the summaries fair, or did they seem biased? How can you tell? Give them some pointers on revising their summaries.
ENG 106 Grand Canyon Week 6 Discussion 2
Use the following questions to develop ideas for your proposal.
- What do you think is the most significant problem regarding the sale of organs?
- Why do you think it is a problem?
- Who has the power to solve this problem?
- Why has it not been solved up to this point?
- How can the problem be solved?
- What are the benefits and costs related to your solution?
Using previous strategies for argumentation discussed in class, develop some arguments for your proposal that you could use for your skeptical audience. (Use arguments from consequence, arguments from principle, arguments from category, and arguments of resemblance as you see fit.)
