Transcript of AP English 11 2/21/12
Your car is twenty years old.
Repairing your car now costs you an average of $650 every month.
You can buy a new car with 0% down and a low interest rate during this month's clearance sale.
Even with a higher insurance rate and higher registration fee, the monthly cost of a new car will be $500. New car costs Old car costs Other Toulmin factors to consider: Toulmin logic encourages you to limit your responsibility in an argument through the effective use of qualifiers. Qualifiers, such as "usually," "sometimes," "rarely," put limits on claims and make it easier to argue a claim convincingly and responsibly. For instance, "Sometimes buying a new car is less expensive than maintaining an old one."
Conditions of rebuttal are potential objections to an argument. Anticipating a reasonable objection and acknowledging it gives your argument credibility and authority. For instance, "Your car may be a classic model, and you may be in love with it, but it is unsafe and you cannot afford to maintain it." Find one object in your purse, pockets, or backpack that says something about who you are. Put it on your desk. Homework: Take notes on pp. 182-200 of Everything's an Argument.
