Transcript of Springboard Activity 1.16
Elements of an Argument
an opening that grabs your reader's attention and establishes a connection between the reader and the writer.
The reasoning behind the argument.
Methods of support:
Logical appeals (facts, statistics, surveys, quotations from studies or research on the topic)
Emotional appeals (appealing to the readers' senses or emotions through imagery or anecdotes)
Personal experiences of the writer
Alluded to in the previous video, refutations follow the concessions. This is where the writer argues why his/her arguments are MORE valid than the opposing viewpoint.
Clear and straightforward statement of the writer's belief about what is being argued
Example: The use of the label "organic" on food products should be regulated by the government.
Example: High school students should be mandated to take a foreign language.
Acknowledgment or restatement of the arguments made by the other side.
Brief restatement of the writer's main arguments.
Call to action
This is the "so what?" So what do you want the readers to do or think at the end of your writing piece?
