Presenting a revised version of the Toulmin model, The Craft of Argument, Concise offers what reviewers have called one of the most accessible and teachable presentations ...show more of Toulmin available. Focusing on problem finding and problem solving as the heart of planning, drafting, and revising written arguments, the first 11 chapters explain the nature of argument, how to develop your argument, and how to think about argument, using the revised Toulmin model. Chapters 12 and 13 discuss the language of argument, including a discussion on some of the basic elements of style.
Features :

  • A revised model of the Toulmin system. Detailed in the preface (and raved about by reviewers), the authors have streamlined the Toulmin system further than any other text while retaining its fundamental insights. Offers a more realistic model for beginning writing students.
  • Excellent graphical representations of what an argument "looks" like.
  • Use of illustrative examples drawn from situations and conversations that will be familiar to college students.
  • Practical "Writing Process" sections-- follow the explanatory rhetorical sections in most chapters. These practical sections detail specific strategies for implementing the theoretical sections of chapters and creating effective arguments.
  • TECHNOLOGY ADVANTAGE-- Companion Website offers chapter-specific summaries, exercises, and additional online argument analyses.
  • Two significant appendices--Based on reviewer comments, these appendices were added to complete the book content: 1) logical fallacies and 2) bibliographic citations (both MLA and updated APA).
  • A Checklist of Questions for Planning and Revising--In a special section tabbed halfway through the book, this checklist will help students build stronger arguments by asking them general and detailed (sentence-specific) questions regarding their arguments.
  • Chapter summaries. "In a Nutshell," appears at the end of every chapter, allowing for quick review and retention of chapter material.
