Argument Reconstruction . It is your task to pick one of the arguments from the reading and then reconstruct it in the standard argument form.
Argument Analysis: After reconstructing the argument, the rest of your response should be an analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the argument. You must determine whether the argument is valid or invalid and why. From there, you must spend time to determine which of the premises, if any, are true and why. This second requirement should be the bulk of your response.
Only one argument needs to be reconstructed, there is no need to do more than one.
2) Make sure you put the argument in standard form before writing anything else.
3) Make sure you understand validity.
