Writing a Reflection Essay
Choose two of the essays (by McKibben, Solnit, Klein, or Zirin) and compare what they argue and how. For the writers of these essays, what drives change? How do their views of what social change is differ? Whose view do you find more accurate or useful/ do you find one more convincing than the other? How much of that relies on your feelings about the issues and how much on the differences in the ways the authors make their arguments?
Cite textual examples in support of your answers and be sure to pay attention to the way the argument is conveyed (tone, use of evidence, etc.)
