Homework and Study Guide


Finish the reading on pages 127-131, doing both activities in the same post (pp 128-9 and 130-1).

Study Guide
Version: Winter 2016-17
Primary Study Points
Argument Stasis Questions / Types of Claims (Packet pg. 87ff)
  1.  Fact
  2. Value
  3. Policy
Be able to evaluate a claim and decide the type of argument it necessitates.
Aristotelian Triangle (textbook pg. 3ff)
Toulmin (Credible Hulk Packet pg. 18)

·         Know the definitions and model
Be able to read a passage and identify what they are talking about, the effect of various rhetorical techniques, the tone, the style, authorial intent, underlying assumptions, etc. Essentially the stuff we’ve been doing all year. If you can answer the blog questions without undue stress, and you seem to get it when we talk about the timed write passages, you should be fine.

There’s more I could ask about, such as thesis types, organizational patterns and their benefits in different situations, and the like. The final is getting rather long, though, so maybe I should stop asking questions. Maybe I'll shoot for a round number of questions. J
