Conversation 5: Arguments

You have watched The Paradox of Choice by Barry Schwartz /TEDTalk and read at least one of the Money and Happiness articles. Select one of the articles so that you can focus on the TEDTalk and one of the articles. 

For each source, state the author’s/ speaker’s conclusion and their premises

Next, create your own argument about this topic. Use evidence from all 2 (or 3 if you wish) sources. For example, you could argue that money doesn’t guarantee happiness. Or you could agree/ disagree with one of the authors, restate their premises, and add your own premises.

Respond to at least 1 classmate. Comment on their argument: do you agree or disagree, is there enough evidence, etc?
