Read the following sections in preparation for this assignment:
We are working in this unit towards the goal of writing an essay that defines the context for your chosen issue and synthesizes existing perspectives about the issue.
Context, as we have defined it, is both a rhetorical tool and an analytical tool. We have used context to evaluate texts in other assignments from this module. For this activity, we will use context as a rhetorical tool to give purpose, focus, and grounding to the ideas we are developing for our research on a relevant cultural or social issue.
Write a short response of at least 200 words in which you practice defining the context for the topic you are writing about in this unit. Use the following questions from the “Thesis” section in CEL Ch. 8 to help you. Additionally, see the example below for analysis of context in the Wykoff article:
