Nine writing chapters provide students with a comprehensive discussion of argument that includes stasis theory (claim types), classical appeals, the Toulmin model, Rogerian argument, inductive and deductive reasoning, and re
futation. In addition, Arguing Across the Disciplinesoffers extensive discussion of visual arguments, how arguments are constructed in different disciplines for different audiences and purposes, and source-based writing using MLA, APA, and CSE documentation styles.
