Analyzing a Sample Argument (graded) In the textbook, review the student essay on p. 199, “Allowing Guns on Campus Will Prevent Shootings, Rape.” In an abbreviated format, the sample contains the elements that you will be including in your Course Project. The controversial subject matter (the content) may engage you right away. This is a sign that the writer is applying an argumentative strategy. Focus on the organization. What do you notice about the way the topic is introduced? How will your draft be similar or different? This section lists options that can be used to view responses.

Opposite Cynthia Johnson 2/3/2014 5:54:17 PM views The author gives the reader a point by point of the two views, this argumentative strategy speaks of how "the second amendment gives us right to bear arms" a basic right of every American. The second view talks about feeling comfortable without worry, concerns or fear of being assaulted. I don't actually agree with either of these views but I think his arguments where stated well and makes the reader consider both views. RE: Opposite Anthony Thornberry 2/5/2014 7:16:07 PM views I certainly agree, the author presented points that were valid from both views in order to make one look stronger than the other. This is a common tactic used by politicians today and has been a common tactic for years. RE: All: Samantha Lytle 2/4/2014 5:13:35 PM The author begins the paper as a mystery. It makes the read want to keep reading. This would be what a I call a catchy phrase. You can also use a fact as a intro strategy. A question is also a good way to start a paper off. Samantha: 2/4/2014 6:43:05 PM Professor Wright You have to be careful with a question. It has to be a relevant question, not some throwaway question. And you should answer it if you ask it. RE: 2/8/2014 6:15:29 PM All: Anthony Thornberry I agree the most effective way to keep a reader's attention is to ask a question near the opening. It causes the reader to want to think about the topic and already have some of their own ideas
