Proposal+5—PDQlover

For my research essay I will be examining the unfairness of life. A child with disabilities  who requires so much care in he or she’s youth can’t pay back the debt to their parents when they get old and infirm and could really use her help. My argument will go into detail about how I can relate to this very situation of being a sibling of a disablied child and wondering what the future holds.

    You’ve named a few topics here, PDQ. I don’t hear a thesis. While I’m very enthusiastic about the meaningful subject matter you propose to study, you need to phrase it as a premise to be proved or disproved. Possible thesis statements hidden in your paragraph include:
    1. Life is unfair
    2. Disabled children owe their parents a debt for the care they receive in their lives.
    3. Elder parents have a right to be taken care of by their grown children.
    4. The siblings of disabled children . . . what, exactly?
    5. Life is unfair to the siblings of disabled children.
    6. Siblings of disabled children receive less support from their parents than their disabled siblings, but are obligated to care for the parents since the disabled children never can.

    Notice how many of these claims are Ethical claims, not quantitative factual claims. Essays can be very persuasive when they illustrate the lives of people in difficult situations, but they are usually short on actual “proof.” Just an observation on my part, but something that might become obvious immediately in the sources you’ve identified below.

    Journal of Child Neurology http://journals.sagepub.com/doi/abs/10.1177/088307388700200113
    The Essential Content of the Article:  This article is about two common words chronic and sorrow. Chronic sorrow describe the process of parent bereavement in response to life with a disabled child.

    The assignment specifically warns you to avoid TALKS ABOUT language, PDQ. Please fix that oversight here and anywhere else you might use it.

    I need to hear more about parent bereavement, PDQ. It’s a fascinating phrase, usually reserved for the survivors of the death of a loved one. Does the article consider the birth of a disabled child to be a kind of death (the death of the healthy child we all hoped for)? Do the parents—does the entire family when there are siblings—suffer the life of a disabled child as if it had experienced a death? We can certainly imagine that the parents’ affection for the surviving siblings might suffer if the parent’s emotions are derailed by the death of a child. ON THE OTHER HAND, couldn’t the parents possibly find themselves EVEN MORE DEVOTED to their surviving children and both cling to them and nurture them more? In other words, Proof in complex emotional generalizations are difficult to come by. If you’ve read the article, you know much more than I do about what the author demonstrates. Your job in this assignment is to crystallize that argument, demonstration, or proof so that I can understand it WITHOUT READING THE ORIGINAL.

    Do you see that all our early assignments attempt to reinforce the same skill?
    1. Purposeful Summary: Share the essence of the argument with a reader who has not read the original source material.
    2. Visual Rhetoric: Describe the argument made by the director’s choice of visual elements for a reader who has not viewed the video.
    3. Proposal+5: Explain the argument, illustration, or proof contained in a source so well that even readers unfamiliar with the original source will see its value to your own thesis.
