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 you 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.
