Description You can think of this theme in a number of ways. One way to interpret this theme is through unsolved criminal or legal cases, like you would see on the original hit show (Google it!). There are hundreds of online communities dedicated to trying to solve these kinds of baffling mysteries, along with countless television shows and documentaries. You can also interpret this topic more metaphorically, as in questions that are unanswered. An example here might be, “Why are there so many homeless veterans in the United States?”. Yet another way to interpret this theme is to think about unsolved scientific (or pseudoscientific) mysteries, such as “Is bigfoot real?”You could also think about enduring cultural or historical mysteries, such as “What happened to Amelia Earhart?” Assignment: The purpose of this assignment is to craft a short argument using either Rogerian or Toulmin structure.
