The Chapter 3 of the Kelly text proposition focus essay
Essay topic and guidelines: In Chapter 3 of the Kelley text, the focus is on propositions. We have begun to develop an introductory understanding of propositions. The purpose of this essay assignment is to make a kind of application of that introductory understanding through writing on Harrington’s “Defining Poverty” piece. Your essay must contain three parts: 1)The first part is the first sentence of your essay. Your first sentence must be a response to Study Question 1, which you find at the bottom of p. 46 of the Harrington piece.
The first sentence of your essay should read as follows: In examining Harrington’s three guidelines for defining poverty, we can determine that he defines poverty as […] Of course, what you glean from those guidelines should be what you fill in the brackets with. (2) The second part of your essay is longer; what you should do here is present the most important propositions and claims that Harrington makes in this piece which support the definition you presented in part 1.
If you find that there are many propositions, pick what you think are the three most important propositions. Also, be sure to make a smooth transition between part 1 and part 2. (3) Close your essay by identifying which one of Harrington’s propositions (the ones you presented in part 2) you most disagree with, and explain why. If you do not disagree with any of them. Then select the one you most enthusiastically agree with, and explain why. Citations: If you make citations from the Harrington text in your essay, then you can use a simple in-text parenthetical style. For example:(Harrington, 45)
