Summarizing Michael Bérubé’s

Write a three-paragraph essay summarizing Michael Bérubé’s article “The Futility of the Humanities.” The first paragraph should be a straight summary of the article, highlighting the main message, the supporting evidence and arguments, etc. The second paragraph should focus on a single strength of the article. The final paragraph should focus on a single weakness in the article. In these final two paragraphs, you are making an argument about the article itself (i.e. you are evaluating the article and defending your evaluation). The strengths and weaknesses can focus on any aspect we have discussed in class, including the kinds of arguments Bérubé makes, the kinds of evidence he offers, the way he represents opposing views, the way he presents his evidence/arguments, etc. Each paragraph should follow the paragraph structure we have discussed in class. The grading rubric is on the back of this sheet.
