Complicating an Idea

Complicating an Idea
Take one single idea, ideally one that you think is strong, from your working thesis or brainstorming or zero draft.
Now, imagine that this one idea is the topic of a complete essay. How would you develop it enough to fill a 3-page essay?
How can you make the idea bigger and more complicated?
Define your terms further – how can you express this idea in a different way?
What are the implications of your idea if it is true?
What are the possible objections/rebuttals/counterarguments to your idea?
Choose at least two writers/speakers we have covered in class. How might they respond to the idea above?
