1. Forms of Argument
After reviewing the Classic and Rogerian Arguments document, discuss how to place your tentative essay into either Aristotle’s classical form of argument or the Rogerian argument style. Your initial post must justify the placement of your material and describe the material’s intended effect on the audience.
Your initial post must be 200 to 300 words in length, and is due by Day 3. You are required to respond to at least two of your classmates by Day 7 in at least 125 to 200 words per response. Pay close attention to the argument style your classmates have described. Do you think that this will be the most effective argument style for their paper? Why, or why not?
2. Paraphrasing and Quoting
Create a topic sentence and a body paragraph that will support your thesis statement. Your paragraph must include paraphrased information and a direct quote. Each of these elements must be incorporated into your paragraph with proper APA in-text citations. In addition, create an APA-formatted reference list for the sources noted in the body of your paragraph. At the end of your paragraph, provide the original text that you are paraphrasing. Share your paragraph and the original text by pasting them into the forum as your initial post by Day 3. Be sure to refer to the Ashford Writing Center (AWC) and this week’s recommended resources for information related to in-text citations and references.
