Chapter 1 of our textbook explains the difference between an argument and an assertion. Give your own example of an assertion. Our textbook author states that assertions do “…little other than impart information.” Why do you think assertions should be true? In other words, why does truth matter?
As you respond, be sure to incorporate ideas from the textbook into your discussion. Remember that you must submit your own initial post and at least one peer response. Let’s have a great first week of discussion!

Good morning, everyone. My name is MyAngel, I just recently moved from South Florida to Georgia. I work a part time position at T.J Maxx. My future goal is to complete my Associates in Criminal Science and further my education after completing a police academy.
I understand you are frustrated with the wait. But, the best I can do is give you a ballpark estimate of how much longer it will take.
Assertions should be true due to the fact they don’t give any backup reasoning to the statement. The truth is very important because we can see how today misleading or false information can have very negative effects on situations.
