MLA format 


  • Use the Classical Argument Model work provided, or the text or video your instructor has posted to complete this assignment.
    • Identify the parts of the argument. You may copy/paste from the text/video transcript or simply type the first sentence of the section you are identifying.
    • For your one reply, choose one element from a classmate’s post and respond with “agree because” or “disagree because” statements. Your answer should be specific, not general. 
      • For example, “I agree with your identification of the thesis statement because that is the one sentence that completely reflects both the issue and the author’s position.” 
    • Identify the thesis statement: The thesis is the main point of the argument. In the example, what is the one sentence that the author gives as their thesis statement?
      Identify the narration section:  This may be history, background, or other information needed to put the argument in perspective. In general, the narration provides a neutral overview of the general topic.
      Identify the partition section: The partition should provide a general preview of the issue about to be argued. It will not go into detail, but it will help the reader understand why there is a disagreement and why the issue is important.

      Identify a sub-claim: There are multiple claims in the example argument. Identify one and then describe what type of claim it is. 
      Identify evidence: For the sub-claim, you chose, what evidence is used to support it?  What type of evidence is it and does it actually prove the sub-claim it is supporting?  Why/why not?
      Identify the counter-argument(s) and refutation: Are there any counterclaims that go against the author’s thesis? What are they? How does the author refute the counterclaim? Do they use evidence or another strategy?
      Identify the conclusion: The conclusion is pretty easy to find. However, what exactly is in the author’s conclusion? What elements of their main argument do they reinforce? Does the conclusion leave a lasting impression? Why or why not?
