In this discussion, we’ll continue to build an argument that is appropriate for the rhetorical situation. Through this discussion, you will consider the opinions, assumptions, and biases that may impact your objectivity.

Prepare

Review the discussion grading criteria, read What Lies Beneath the Surface by Joy Meads, and watch the full video Mind Bugs | Mahzarin R. Banaji | TEDxBari (Links to an external site.) from TEDx Talks on YouTube.

Then, log on to Project Implicit (Links to an external site.) (https://implicit.harvard.edu/implicit/) and take at least one implicit association test (IAT). There are many tests to choose from. You do not have to register or log in. You can take any test(s) as an unregistered “guest” by clicking the orange “GO!” button. Pay close attention to the instructions for each section of the IAT. The rules change!

Reflect

After learning about the IAT and taking the test online, think about your results and the explanation provided by the website. Are the results surprising to you? Do you trust the outcome of the IAT? How did you feel while taking the test and how did you feel when you received the results? Were some parts of the IAT easier than others?

Think about the possible biases, assumptions, and opinions that may be influencing your work in this class. Will Mead’s ten strategies for overcoming unconscious bias help you compose a more objective argument?

Write

Share what you learned from your IAT experience and relate it to Meads’ ten strategies for overcoming unconscious bias.

Then,

  • remind the class of your research question( see attachment) and share your working thesis statement (See Writing a Thesis Statement (Links to an external site.)),
  • identify your personal opinions, experiences, assumptions, and associations with the subject of your argumentative essay,
  • explain how you intend to overcome your biases so you can write an objective research-based argument, and
  • share how you plan to integrate research into your rough draft this week.
