Strategy Questions for Organizing Your Argument Essay:

  1. How will you introduce your issue? What will be your lead-in “hook” (an example or anecdote, a scenario, a startling statistic, a proactive question or statement, a vivid description)?
  2. How much rhetorical context should you provide your readers? How much information must be included?
  3. Where will you present the strongest statement of your claim: early on/at the end of your introduction (the conventional location) or delayed/in your conclusion?
  4. What are your main supporting arguments (subclaims)? How should they be ordered? Your subclaims probably should serve as paragraph topic sentences.
  5. What authoritative evidence do you have to support the sub claims you identified above? Do you have authoritative testimonies? Are there statistics or facts you need to present? Do you have the option to use personal experience?
    1. What evidence will appeal to your readers’ logos?
    2. What evidence will appeal to your readers’ pathos? Will any of the creative literature you have read provide direct support for your claim? Will including it add an emotional impact to your argument, and, if so, where should you position this piece of evidence?
  6. Where will you address opposing viewpoints-in the first, middle, or last section of your essay’s body? What are the main points of the opposing arguments? Should these points serve as paragraph topic sentences?
  7. Acknowledging that readers’ objections-counterarguments-will have some validity, how will you address those objections? Will you make some concessions? What refutation arguments will you present, and where will you position them?
  8. What questions of style and tone do you need to keep in mind as you write to ensure that you keep readers open to and interested in your argument? How can you develop a bond of respect and trust between you and your readers (appeal to ethos)?
  9. Do you maintain a voice that is well-suited for academic argument? Do you write predominately from the third-person point of view?
  10. How will you conclude your argument? Wll you use a value-based appeal as a closing gesture of common ground? Will you issue a “call to action”-suggest specific steps “we” readers should take?

 

Chapter Activity #5 Activity

What is a hero? How do others define this concept? How do you define it? Think about some of the characters in the selections you have just read; do they fit a definition of a “hero”? Think about real people you have encountered in your life; do any of them fit the definition? How does a hero relate to his or her society? Broaden your understanding of a hero by reading the short selection “from Bodega Dreams”, the poem “Hard Rock Returns to Prison from the Hospital for the Criminal Insane”, and the essay “The Train from Hate”. Do some library research in order to extend your understanding of the concept of the hero. Now create your own definition. Support your argument with evidence from your library research, personal experience, and specific examples from your reading in this chapter.
