ENG112 English Composition II: Writing and Rhetoric
Discussion - Mini Argument
Now that you learned what a claim, reasons, and evidences are, post an argument example identifying what the claim, reasons, and evidences are. Examples can be from everyday life (for example an advertisement you have seen or a conversation you just had) or something you just made up. Hit reply to post.
Here is a sample:
This is an advertisement I saw in my neighborhood.
Claim: I can be a great boyfriend.
Reason #1: I am creative.
Evidence #1: I am a professional artist.
Reason #2: I am tired of the singles scene and different from other singles.
Evidence #2: I'm posting this ad with my photo in streets.
Reason #3: I am serious.
Evidence #3: I typed "This is not a joke" several times on the ad and mentioned about a relationship morphing into something more profound.
Is this a strong argument? Probably not mostly because of the weak reasons. Regardless of the strength of argument, try to find or develop arguments from everyday life.
