7 Stock Issues
Creating and Answering the 7 Stock Issues for a Claim of Policy ( I’ll send the seven stock issues of a policy claim).
The skill of asking useful questions is crucial in analyzing any claim and making a decision. In this assignment I want to make sure you know how to analyze a claim. To do this I am giving you a claim and asking you to:
- Create seven issues, one for each of the Stock Issues of a Claim of Policy.
- Answer those issues by creating a contention
Remember to follow the guidelines for effective issues, like making them specific, only one question per issue etc.
For example, your answer regarding the fourth stock issue of a policy claim “Can the problem be fixed within the system?” might be,
- Issue: “Can gun safety be improved by enforcing current laws?”
- Contention. “Yes, gun safety can be improved by enforcing current laws.”
Just do this for each of the seven stock issues.
Claim: The Federal Government should implement additional laws on gun control.
We haven’t talked about research yet, but here is a hint: Google, “gun control” and you will see articles that will inspire your creation of issues.
