Part 3: Map an Argument


Once your interlocutor has confirmed that you have accurately represented their argument(s), you should then map their argument(s) with MindMup. If their arguments are complex, then you should map each separate argument in a separate map. Submit your map of your interlocutor’s argument(s) to us by sending the sharable link to your map through the course chat function in the lower right-hand corner of the page. We will evaluate the quality of your map to see whether you have followed the conventions of argument mapping (especially the Reason Rule), and whether you have accurately represented your interlocutor’s arguments in the map, i.e. your map accurately captures the points your interlocutor was making.

Please wait until you receive our feedback on your map before moving on to the part 4.
