A12: Causal Rewrite

Causal Rewrite

As you did before with your Definition Rewrite, you’ll be required to revise and re-post your Causal Argument as a Causal Rewrite. You’ll publish your new post in a new Category, A12: Causal Rewrite.

Whatever improvements you make to your Causal argument, you can also copy back to your first assignment, A09: Causal Argument.

For the time being, then, both posts will be identical but with different titles. The only difference will be what happens in the future.

  • Your original Causal Argument will be a permanent part of your Non-portfolio collection of assignments.
  • You can continue to improve your A12 right up until the day Portfolios are due, although feedback may be very limited. The final version will contribute to your overall holistic Portfolio grade.
