1 Claims and Your Argument

2 Claims and your prompt Claims are arguments you are making Claims should reflect the question you are being asked to answer.

3 Question 1 Imprecise claim: There are many positive effects of advertising. Vague Claim: Advertising has many harmful effects. Strong claim: Advertising works to create a need in the audience, whether the audience actually ‘needs’ the product or not.

4 Question 3 Vague Claim: Offering Incentives for Charity is good. Weak Claim: Ultimately, it is up to the audience to decide. Strong Claim: Participating in charity improves us because it reminds us how fortunate we truly are, and offering incentives can negate that benefit of charity work.

5 Question 2 Functional Claim: Sanders uses a variety of rhetorical techniques to develop his perspective. More specific claim: In the first paragraph, Sanders’ diction and tone introduce the traditional American perspective on moving, hinting at his disapproval with subtle mockery.

6 Claim/Data/Warrant Claim: In the first paragraph, Sanders’ diction and tone introduce the traditional American perspective on moving, hinting at his disapproval with subtle mockery. Data: – List of explorers ending with ‘rainbow chasers and vagabonds’ – Diction that suggests delusion: “Promised Land, myth, romance, drunk, infatuation” – Detail of highway  impractical – A rational person would ‘hoot’ at this idea

7 Warrant: Sanders explains that Americans have always been in love with moving. But while traditionally this has been seen as a virtue of American life, Sanders’ tone subtly begins to mock this idea. Instead of being brave and courageous explorers, Sanders mocks this perspective as impractical and delusional.

8 Apples Arguments Claim: One sentence that links the red card to the green card. Data: What you know about the red card. Warrant: An explanation of how the red card links to the green card.
