Write a formal essay of 300 words in which you use your critical thinking skills to evaluate the article Smug, craven politicians in thrall to notions of \’diversity\’ sowed the seeds of the terror we\’re now reaping by Richard Littlejohn.
Your essay will be an assessment of what the author is trying to achieve, which strategies he is using to attain this end, and the effectiveness of those strategies. This will involve identifying the purpose and audience of the text
and then analysing the text with respect to several of the elements of argument we have discussed in class. That is, you may wish to comment on the structure (premises and conclusion), the use of language, assumptions, deductive or inductive reasoning, and/or numbers. As with the blog entries, I am looking for evidence that you have mastered the terms and concepts from class discussions and readings. You must use an effective introduction, thesis, topic sentences, and conclusion to organise your thoughts clearly. And dont forget to support your points with specific references to the article.
