By the end of Week 2, you will prepare an analysis of an argument. Please read the assignment connection section on each lesson page for additional guidance.
Choose a TED Talk in which the speaker presents a persuasive thesis on a debatable issue. Your purpose in this assignment is to analyze and evaluate the speaker’s argument, not to simply summarize or to argue for your own position on the speaker’s topic. Your overall judgement of the argument will be stated in your thesis, which will be supported by your analytical explanation of the evidence you gather while answering the questions outlined below.
Here are some suggested TED Talks.
Yvonne Aki-Sawyer: How to turn your dissatisfaction into action
(Links to an external site.)
Julia Dhar: How to disagree productively and find common ground
(Links to an external site.)
Seth Godin: How to get your ideas to spread
(Links to an external site.)
Nick Hanauer: The dirty secret of capitalism – and a new way forward
(Links to an external site.)
Camille Langston: How to use rhetoric to get what you want
(Links to an external site.)
Wanjira Mathai: 3 ways to uproot a culture of corruption
(Links to an external site.)
Sendhil Mullainathan: Solving social problems with a nudge
(Links to an external site.)
Structure your essay with a section heading (centered, bold, title case) for each of the three body sections and conclusion. In each section, write one or more paragraphs responding to the questions outlined below.
Set up your essay in APA format with title and reference pages. Use the template provided in Files. Cite the talk on a reference page in the following format.
Speakerlastname, Initial. Initial. (Year, Month day). Title of talk. URL
In a two- to three-page essay (600–900 words), address the following questions.
Introduction (No heading needed for introductions)
What is your purpose for writing?
How will your analysis essay be organized? Indicate the analysis sections in a sentence.
What is the TED speaker’s topic?
What is the speaker’s connection to the topic, and from what angle does the speaker approach the topic?
What is the speaker’s overall perspective or opinion on the argument? Whether it is clearly stated or not, identify what you think is your speaker’s central thesis.
What is your thesis regarding the quality of the speaker’s argument, including your overall judgment of this speaker’s effectiveness?
Rhetorical Situations (This is your most important and detailed section. Consider writing two to three paragraphs. Be sure to explain yourself.)
Who is the speaker’s target audience?
What is the speaker’s purpose? What does the speaker want the audience to do with the information they are presented with?
What is the context of the TED Talk? What historical or current event information is presented (or is missing) to help the audience understand the argument?
What rhetorical appeals (reason, emotion, credibility) does the speaker use to help strengthen the argument?
Evidence (Don’t just summarize the talk. Write at least one solid paragraph with detailed examples as well as explain how the evidence supports the speaker’s argument.)
What types of evidence does the speaker use?
Does the evidence seem credible, timely, and relevant? Why, or why not?
What additional information do you want to know about the topic?
Presentation (In a paragraph, consider both the argument’s structure and the speaker’s actual presentation skills.)
How does the speaker introduce the topic and engage the audience?
Does the speaker conclude the talk in an effective and memorable way?
Does the speaker use good presentation skills while delivering the message? Consider use of images or other visual aids, vocal qualities, use of humor, body language, connection with the audience, and so forth.
Conclusion
Wrap up your reflections on the TED speaker’s presentation.
What is your overall judgment of the argument’s quality and effectiveness based on your answers to the questions above?
Remember to submit your assignment by the end of the week.

FAQ

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email (support@essaynook.com) or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at anna@essaynook.com, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
