WEEK 6: Your reading this week consists of five pages from Berkeley’s Understanding Science website. These readings relate to the role of evidence in science and scientific arguments. You should read:
1. The core of science: Relating evidence and ideas. The remaining pages can be accessed from here, and are also all listed below.
This week I would like you to practice making and critiquing arguments. Complete the tasks below. In your REPLIES, use the fallacies discussed in the chapter to critique other peopleâ€™s arguments. This week, the REPLIES will be worth more points overall than the original Discussion POSTS.
1. Make an evidence-based argument about the impact of climate change in the location you have been working with in your Homework. Make sure to:
- Start your argument by stating the location. [example: â€œI am making an argument about the impact of climate change on El Savador.â€]
- State your argument as an â€œif, thenâ€, â€œeither, orâ€, â€œthereforeâ€ or similar set of statements.
- Provide your evidence!
You can also bring in ideas from the lecture.
