ENG 106 Module 7 DQ 1

In the lecture, Rebekah Taylor’s argument in “A Letter to Jim” follows a particular arrangement of ideas. Your proposal should do the same thing. In other words, your proposal should follow this outline: 
1. Open cordially and introduce the issue
2. Summarize the opposing view fairly and accurately while recognizing their importance
3. Summarize your own view of the issue without arguing that the opposing views are wrong
4. Find common ground on which to build a compromise
5. Argue in favor of a perspective that both you and your skeptical audience can agree on
6. Propose a compromise
To what extent did you arrange your letter to follow this organizational pattern? To what extent does it deviate from this organizational pattern? How do you plan to fix the pattern of arrangement in your letter?
