Week 1 Discussion

Pro-Position Topics

Part 1: Research & Review

Please review the Point: Vaccines Save Lives, an example of a pro article.

Note: The article was pulled from our Chamberlain library's Points of View Reference Center database. This resource is highly recommended, as it presents many of the topics in the General Education Healthcare field that may be applicable this term. To access the resource from our library website, choose "Databases" on the homepage, and scroll down to "Points of View." Click "Go." Scroll down to Health and Medicine. You will see a large list of potential topics ranging from Allergies in Schools to Vegetarianism. When you click on a topic (Vaccines, for example), you will see an overview of the topic, as well as points, counterpoints, and a guide to critical analysis.

To develop your ideas about a selected topic, conduct an online search to find a recent pro article on your topic. The goal is to find an article that takes a clear pro position. Include the following in your post:

Name of the article

Author

URL

Brief summary of the article.

The article can be an online source from credible websites or academic resources. It must be cited in APA format. For pointers on APA citations, please refer to the Chamberlain Library's Citation and Writing Assistance website (noted in the Required Resources).

Part 2: Application

For the second part of the initial post, address the following:

Discuss which of the topic generation methods from this week's lecture worked best for you and why (or did you use an alternate approach?).

How will you remain objective about your topic?

Who is your audience?

Based on the topic development completed so far, brainstorm 3 potential pros for your topic choice.

Follow-Up Post Instructions

Respond to at least two peers or one peer and the instructor. Strive to provide constructive criticism that will help your fellow students develop their own topics by asking questions, pointing to additional research, or providing professional and personal examples. Help your fellow peers to brainstorm potential pros for their topics. Since many of the topics we will deal with in this course are controversial, a respectful, professional tone is expected.

Part 2: Application

Evaluate how effective the article's argument was using Toulmin's model. Detail as many of the 6 components as possible:

Claim: What was the article's main point? What's the thesis?

Grounds: What kinds of evidence did the author use to support his/her argument? Provide an example.

Warrants: Did the author(s) successfully connect the evidence to the main point? How so?

Backing: How credible were the sources the author(s) applied? How does credulity affect your overall response?

Qualifiers: Did you notice any absolutes (all, every, each) or limiters (some, several, many)? How did they add or subtract from the argument?

Rebuttal: Did the author(s) present any points of opposition and counterarguments? How did it influence your reaction?

Note: If a section is missing completely from an article, spend of time discussing how its absence affects the overall success of the argument.

How will you apply a similar approach in your pro-position papers? Based on this assessment, what must include and what can you avoid in your own argument development?

Follow-Up Post Instructions

Respond to at least two peers or one peer and the instructor. Here, we have an opportunity to compare research notes with our fellow peers.

Did your peers discover something you missed?

Do you agree with the stance in this article? If so, what other warrants or grounds might you add to validate the argument? If not, what qualifiers or rebuttals might you present to disprove the argument?

Remember, the goal here is to find multiple perspectives, but those perspectives should be both professional and respectful. Ask questions to keep the conversation going.

Week 3 Discussion

Appealing the Audience

Initial Post Instructions

Part 1: Research & Review

Search online to find a medical, health facility, or communal-health advertisement. Medical advertisements might include drugs (prescription or over the counter), treatments, or medical devices. You might also find an ad for a local health facility. Alternatively, you can find an ad promoting a communal health topic, like drunk-driving, homelessness, or properly buckling children in car seats. Ideally, you should work within your chosen topic for Week 3 and 4, but if you cannot find an ad about your topic, go with one that sparks your interest.

Part 2: Application

Dissect your chosen ad based on the 4 appeals from this week's lesson: logos, pathos, ethos, and kairos.

Attempt to find an example of each in your ad, and explain how each appeal tries to persuade the audience.

If an appeal is missing, then discuss how its absence effects the ad's overall persuasion.

Finally, present your overall assessment of the ad's effectiveness.

Click on the following Writing Tip link to learn about citing graphics:

Link: Writing Tip

Follow-Up Post Instructions

Respond to at least two peers or one peer and the instructor. Address the following:

Compare your own analysis of the ad's effectiveness to those of your peers.

Who do you think is the potential audience for your peer's ad? Why is that the case?

Evaluate how the ad might be more effective.

Did you find the ad manipulative or supportive?

Who stands to profit from the ad?

This week's lesson presented a model of an annotated bibliography. Review the model, focusing on the components of the entry:

Reference citation

Summary

Credibility

Assessment

Research a new source for your Pro-Con Position Paper (hopefully one that represents your opposition's point). Then, draft 1 reference entry and 2 paragraphs for this new source.

Make sure to cite your source in APA format.

Follow-Up Post Instructions.

Respond to at least two peers or one peer and the instructor. For peer feedback this week, please review the Guidelines for Evaluating Sources in our textbook (Seyler & Brizee, 2018, pp. 281-282). Consider the following prompts as you provide feedback to your peers:

What is the purpose of the text?

Can you locate the author's credentials?

Estimate the credibility of the text.

Is this source an appropriate level for this degree of academic writing?

Is the source up-to-date?

Part 2: Application

Draft a body paragraph for the upcoming pro/con position paper, incorporating one paraphrase and one quote.

The paragraph should contain a topic sentence, evidence, and conclusion/connection. Strive for a minimum of 5 complete sentences.

The paraphrase should be introduced with a signal phrase.

The quote should be introduced and explained.

Both the paraphrase and quote should be cited in-text and on a reference page.

Then, answer the following prompts:

Explain your approach to paraphrasing vs quoting.

Link: Writing Tip

Follow-Up Post Instructions

Respond to at least two peers or one peer and the instructor. For this week's peer response, let's do a bit or role-playing. Choose a peer and pretend you are a professor who has just discovered a potential academic integrity violation. (This is, of course, not the case, but it is a fun experiment none-the-less!).

Review the Academic Integrity section (pp. 35-38) of Chamberlain University Student Handbook. Select a violation from the Violations of Academic Integrity section. Write a short message to the student explaining how the violation occurred, the potential solution, and/or punishment.

Week 6 Discussion

DQ1 Rebuttals and Refutations

Part 1: Research & Review

Review this week's lesson and reading. Find an academic source to back up your opposition's point of view. This is a new source, in addition to the source you located last week.

Part 2: Application

Anticipating readers' objections is one way to determine what other sections to include and support in your paper. Practice writing a counterargument that applies the Toulmin model. Incorporate one of the new sources you have gathered to present your opposition's point. Strive for at least 5 developed sentences. Cite your source in APA format.

Grounds / 1st Counterargument (your opposition's point)

Backing (establish credibility of the source)

Warrant (evidence)

Possible concession / conclusion

Answer the following prompts:

How were you able to remain objective while presenting the opponent's point of view?

What challenges did you face obtaining evidence to back up the assertion?

Which conciliatory approach did you apply and why?

How was it effective?

DQ2 Deceptive Arguments

Part 1: Research & Review

Review the two articles in Required Resources on the uses of logical fallacies and rhetorical appeals in the healthcare field.

The Krishen and Bui (2015) article discusses the active use of logical fallacies to manipulate obese consumers into making better health choices through two oppositional approaches: fear tactics and positive reinforcement.

The Giachino, Stupino, Peratulo, and Bertoldi (2017) article presents a study of fear tactics applied through social advertising, similar to the ads we discussed in our Week 3 discussion boards. Students were exposed to fear advertising in an attempt to reduce high speed driving.

Part 2: Application

Apply what you have learned about logical fallacies and rhetorical appeals to interpret and summarize the articles. Consider the following questions:

If the participants are aware of misleading manipulation techniques, are they immune to their effects?

What are the limitations of these types of fear inducing tactics?

How would you react if you were a subject in one of these studies?

What can we take away from these articles to apply in our own topics?

Where else have you seen these types of fear tactics applied (e.g., advertising, social media, word of mouth, etc.)? Are these other mediums effective? Why is that the case?
