Summary: Organized around common rhetorical situations that occur all around us, INVENTING ARGUMENTS shows students that argument is a living process rather than a form to be modeled. The text's prominent focus on invention teaches students to recognize the rhetorical elements of any argumentative situation and apply the tools of argument effectively in their own writing.

Benefits:

  • Inventing Argu ...show morements is organized according to argumentative situations vs. the elements or models of argument, teaching students to effectively apply the tools of argument in any situation.
  • The first full-color argument text, Inventing Arguments engages students with compelling visual and textual documents.
  • The Invention section within each chapter helps students to discover topics for their arguments; to explore a rhetorical situation; to develop a revelatory thesis that promotes a new way of thinking to support their thesis with effective evidence and appeals; and to consider counterarguments, concessions and qualifiers to their arguments.
  • Readings incorporated within each of the chapters in Part 1 show how writers use argumentative strategies to communicate effectively. Readings range in genre from academic, formal essays to songs, cartoons, photos, posters, and other images.
  • Part 2, "The Argument Handbook," defines and illustrates key rhetorical and argumentative terms equipping students with the tools they need to argue effectively.
  • Part 3, "The Research Guide," offers students fundamental strategies for doing primary and secondary research, while also teaching them to view research as a tool of argument and to evaluate sources as elements within bigger institutional and social arguments.
  • Part 4, "Anthology of Readings," offers a collection of arguments in multiple formats for further reading.
