What do you think is the most significant problem facing modern society? Why? What should we do about it? CAN anything be done? Explain.
For this weekend’s blog post, I’m asking you to identify a problem and potentially offer a solution. This, on the heels of “A Modest Proposal” should get you thinking about the nature of proposals. We will continue to explore this form of discourse and the rhetoric therein next week with a discussion of the homework reading (“Bad Food? Tax it! And Subsidize Vegetables”) and some other examples. You’ll do a bit of writing next week, too.
Remember, your BLA meetings will be Monday and Wednesday instead of Tuesday and Thursday.
