After looking through the chapters, I decided to focus on chapter 9. The chapter mostly discusses how most student writers have a convoluted argument because they think that in order for their argument to sound smart, they make a simple argument more complex by adding words that would never be used in every day conversation. I chose to read it because I tend to make some of my claim sentences way more confusing than it should be. I have modified some of my claim sentences by simplifying it enough to where it wouldn’t be something rudimentary, but it is also something thoughtful. From my peer reviews, there were sections where it confused the editors just because they didn’t understand what I was trying to say. So by modifying what I wrote, I believe that my argument and explanation will be easier to understand.

  1. Wonderful choice. I imagine it paired nicely with our Klinkinborg exercise.
