2 { Writing Arguments 1. CCSS.ELA-Literacy.W CCSS.ELA-Literacy.W Write arguments to support claims in an analysis of substantive topics or texts, using valid reasoning and relevant and sufficient evidence.

3 KEY TERMS : Argument: A reason or idea forward in support of or in opposition to a point of view : To maintain that something is true Claim: To maintain that something is true Substantive topic or text: The topic or text being offered or considered (this may be in the form of a prompt or essay topic) Sound, well-founded facts that cannot be denied. Valid reasoning: Sound, well-founded facts that cannot be denied. Proof that is directly related to the subject at hand and that is adequate to prove the claim. Relevant and sufficient evidence: Proof that is directly related to the subject at hand and that is adequate to prove the claim. Write arguments to support claims in an analysis of substantive topics or texts, using valid reasoning and relevant and sufficient evidence.

4 {{ CLAIM The main idea that you are suggesting or promoting. Your main point.What you will prove to be true. EVIDENCE The proof to back up your claim. Any and all support to show that your claim is true. C OUNTERARGUMENT : Objections that might arise to prove your argument false but that you might address and consider to prove your own argument true.

5 Relevant and Sufficient Evidence “Slip & Trip” Evidence – What you find and observe to support your claim: Arthur is still holding the glass in his hand “Slip & Trip” Rule – How we interpret the evidence. (Must be worded as a rule using correct grammatical form): As a rule, when people fall down stairs, they drop what they are holding in order to steady and save themselves. “Slip & Trip” Conclusion – What your evidence leads you to believe: Queenie is probably lying about Arthur falling down the stairs and probably placed the glass in his hand. *probably = qualification

6 Write an investigative report of the scene: Include: When you arrived When you arrived What you found (be specific) What you found (be specific) What Queenie said What Queenie said What the autopsy found What the autopsy found Whether the evidence supports what Queenie said Whether the evidence supports what Queenie said Your conclusion and recommendation Your conclusion and recommendation Your explanation of the evidence supporting your conclusion(s) and recommendation(s) Your explanation of the evidence supporting your conclusion(s) and recommendation(s) You may begin with something like this: We arrived at the home of Arthur and Queenie Volupides at approximately 2:15 a.m. on May 2, Upon arrival, we found Arthur Volupides lying at the bottom of the main stairs…

7 On Wednesday, May 7 th, we arrived to the Volupides household shortly after 1:30AM. Upon arrival, we found Arthur Volupides dead at the foot of the stairs with a glass in his left hand. The glass was still whole and unscratched, suggesting the glass was placed there after the fall. Arthur was laying on his back, implying that he fell backwards and did not slip. Upon further investigation, we found that there were no attempts to break a fall; all décor was still perfectly placed on the wall, the carpets were all in perfect position, and there was no indication that any remaining liquid had spilled from the glass. Mrs. Volupides stated that she left for the country club after getting in a fight with her husband. She was also drinking with her friends, and they were coming to her house for another drink. Even though she got there ten minutes before her friends, she did not contact the police about the incident. When her friends arrived, she said “Something terrible happened. Arthur slipped and fell on the stairs. He was coming down for another drink—he still had the glass in his hand—and I think he’s dead. Oh my god—what shall I do?” This statement was confirmed by the friends present at the scene. Sample:

8 After a full autopsy, it was confirmed that Arthur died from a wound to the head. Our conclusion is that Queenie is lying about the cause of Arhtur’s death. She was still upset about their earlier fight and hit Arthur from behind with the frying pan. It is our recommendation that she be charged for the murder of Arthur Volupides.
