As you learned in the readings this week, arguments are used to convince us of an outcome. You read about how to identify an issue, the role that issues play in arguments, how to differentiate between an argument and rhetoric, and the different types of arguments you may encounter. In this assignment, you will evaluate arguments for and against the use of facial recognition technology and then respond to questions about the issue.
