Toulmin model assignment

Now that you have a firm understanding of the Toulmin model and its various parts, you will now apply that information to the real world. You are to find an argument made in a newspaper or magazine editorial, and then analyze the argument via the Toulmin model. The article can be from an online newspaper or magazine, but blogs or normal webpages are not acceptable. Additionally, the article MUST be an editorial or op-ed piece – these are to be personal views that are making a specific argument about an issue. Beyond including a hard copy of your article, you will want to include the following:

* Identify the parts present – analyzing the artifact, you will identify any and all parts of the Toulmin model that are present within the artifact. For each part, you will need to present three aspects: * Define the Toulmin part – define (briefly) what this part is (to demonstrate that you know what you’re supposed to be looking for). This should be in your own words – don’t just quote the readings. * Express the example – express what specifically, within the artifact, is representing this particular part of the Toulmin model. This should be a direct quotation from the article. Do NOT paraphrase this part. * Explain the selection – explain why this particular selection you have chosen is a representation of this particular part of the Toulmin model. How does it fit into this type? Why would this be an example of the part? * Identify missing parts – after analyzing the artifact for the parts that are present, you will need to include any parts that were not present, by having these three aspects: * Define the Toulmin part – define (briefly) what this part is (to demonstrate that you know what you’re supposed to be looking for) * Express a hypothetical example – express what could have been…...

...The Howard Sheth model, serves as an integrating framework for a very sophisticated comprehensive theory of consumer behavior. It should be noted that the authors actually use the term buyer in their model to refer to industrial purchases as well as ultimate consumers. Thus, it can be seen that their interest was to develop a unified theory useful for understanding a great variety of behaviors. The model attempts to depict rational brand choice behavior by buyers under conditions of incomplete information and limited abilities. It distinguishes three levels of decision making: 1) Extensive problem solving – early stages of decision making in which the buyer has little information about brands and has not yet developed, well defined and structured criteria by which to choose among products (choice criteria). 2) Limited problem solving – in this more advanced stage choice criteria are well defined but the buyer is still undecided about which set of brands will best serve him. Thus, the consumer still experiences uncertainty about which brand is best. 3) Routinized responses behavior – buyers have well defined choice criteria and also have strong predispositions towards the brand. Little confusion exists in the consumer’s mind and he is ready to purchase a particular brand with little evaluation of alternatives The model borrows from learning concepts to explain brand choice behavior over time as learning takes place and the buyer moves from exclusive to routinized problem......

...1. The six parts of the Toulmin model. 1) Claim, the main point or thesis for the argument. 2) Grounds: Evidence and reason for the argument. 3) Warrant: The motive and reasoning that associates the grounds with the claim. 4) Backing: gives support, evidence and data about the claim. 5) Rebuttal: Offers opposite opinions or opposing arguments to the claim. 6) Qualification: Clarifies the language of the argument and excludes words such as always and never. This gives the argument reasonable limits the audience can accept. 2. Synonyms for the claim include the proposition, the thesis, and conclusion. Synonyms for the warrant include assumption, cultural values and underlying logic. Synonyms for support include evidence, examples and explanations. More synonyms for these words are listed on page 121 of the book Perspectives on argument by Nancy V. Wood. 3. Subclaims are supporting arguments or specific issues that justify the main point of the argument. By themselves subclaims will not address the claim, they are merely supporting arguments. Specific support is more than just an argument, it is evidence that gives the claim and subclaim merit to the audience. 4. Warrants are views, values or beliefs held by a group or individual. When the arguer has similar warrants as the audience, the argument is accepted more often since they share these warrants. When the audience has opposing views or values, the arguer will have to provide more......

...affectively apply the Toulmin method in an essay. I experienced a better understanding of the topic from employing the Toulmin method. Yes, because originally I knew little about alternative energy and its affects. 3) What difficulties did you encounter during the research, writing, or editing phases of the assignment? I encountered the most trouble writing the essay. This is the first time I’ve wrote an essay that used this writing method. I feel like writing using the Toulmin method is very beneficial for me once I felt I understood it. 4) What did you enjoy about this assignment? I enjoyed the articles that I found on the topic that I chose. This assignment really helped me better understand how alternative energy is incorporated into society. I was always curious of the effects of alternative energy and this assignment gave me some good insight. 5) What made you decide to write about this particular topic? Is this a topic that you are discussing in another course? Is this a topic that concerns you in particular? I chose this topic out of frustration with gasoline prices. Currently this is not a topic that I’m discussing in another class. This particular topic concerns me because I don’t want gas prices to rise to amounts that cause extreme hardships on me and my family. 6) Is there anything else you would like for me to know before reading your essay? I hope to have completed this essay in a manner that satisfies the directions. I enjoyed using the Toulmin......

A Model

...A model is a simplified representation of some aspect of the world. In what ways may models help or hinder the research for knowledge? A model by definition is “a schematic description of a system, theory, or phenomenon that accounts for its known or inferred properties and may be used for further study of its characteristics”[1] that implies that a model is supposed to be a helping hand while searching for knowledge in any subject. Sometimes however models can appear to be quite confusing as they are to general or too far away from real life situations. So how and in what way models can help and hinder the search for knowledge in natural sciences, human sciences and arts I am going to argue in the following essay. In school we learn all our subjects with the help of models and especially in natural sciences we need them in order to assume what might happen if, say in biology, in a cell there is a lack of oxygen and we know and can explain with a model of a cell and of the respiratory cycle how anaerobic respiration works and what it does and needs. With the help of the model and through logical connecting of facts that the student might already have, he can develop the thought in his or her mind and therefore gain new knowledge about a theoretical process that was proven to take place in the human body. Another model, which however is not as accurate also in Biology is the Sigmoid Population growth curve. It displays the population growth of a species over a period of......

...The specification says ‘explanations’, which means you’ll need to know at least two explanations. 1. The importation model – this explains aggression in prisons. In brief, it says aggression occurs because of characteristics that prisoners bring inside with them. Cheeseman (2003) said that men in prison have a certain way of behaving (probably why they went to prison in the first place!) and they then apply that behaviour to their new institutional setting. Toch (1997) says this: all prisons inherit their subcultural sediments from the street corners that supply them with clients. This suggests that young people can be aggressive both on the street and in prison. Personal and psychological factors that existed in inmates before being incarcerated can affect the level of aggressive behaviour shown in prison. Mills, Kroner and Weekes (1998) studied prisoners admitted to a Canadian prison using the alcohol dependence scale (ADS). Inmates who had higher levels of dependence were associated with more aggression shown in prison. Also, inmates who had greater periods of unemployment, lower levels of education, and a more serious criminal record were more likely to be aggressive in prison (Kane and Janus, 1981). Demographic variables that seem to influence aggression in prisons are race and age. Studies in America have shown that non-whites and younger prisoners are more likely to be aggressive whilst incarcerated. Kane and Janus (1981) say that this is because these......

...Chris Kregloski Whitney Sandin WVU English 101 The Ancient Debate The legalization of marijuana is one of the most controversial topics in America and its debate has been fought over nonstop since the existence of the drug. This naturally found plant is known and used across the entire world. It is illegal in most places including the majority of the United States yet in reality it is safer than alcohol and tobacco. Today, more and more people are starting to realize this and side with pro legalization in America and are even questioning why it is illegal. There are many reasons why people support its legalization. Many say it would actually prove to be more helpful if it were legalized. Legalization could help America’s economy, health and crime. In one article journalist Ryan Schuette uses logos, ethos and pathos to support this claim and proves how legalizing marijuana as soon as possible could help America thrive in the near future. Schuette starts off his argument with his first supporting statement, that the legalization of the drug would bring our country economic relief. Its legalization would create jobs and help prevent bankruptcy, which America definitely needs at this moment in time. There is no way around this fact for anyone who is against the legalization of the drug. The United States has a total debt of 17 trillion dollars and with 20 billion dollars in debt alone in Detroit, who recently became the largest city in America to declare bankruptcy after...

...1.Rational goal models it can bring all the workers together which make the manager easier to control and rule them. Therefore, there is a more powerful right and firms can run the business easier. For example, employer can directly control the time limit or even the division of labour. Also, this can increase the output for the company. However, there is also a risk of business failure in it . Internal process models managers can creat bureaucratic structures which make workers can understand the clear rules to it. Also, they were using scientific management techniques to control production and impose discipline on factory work. The importance of a career structure is linked to a person’s position.The right to give instructions was based on a person’s position in the hierarchy, and a rational analysis of how staff should work. This worked well in large public and private organisations, such as government departments and banks. Human relations models This replaced bureaucratic institutions by networks in which people themselves analysed their problems and implemented their solutions. managers tell people to behave as if they are extensions of a machine, they will do so.managers would not manipulate their subordinates, but train them to use power responsibly. managers should give workers a chance to grow capacity or power for themselves.

...The Document Object Model (DOM) is an important part of creating animation and making web pages interactive. The Document Object Model is used with Dynamic HTML to help accomplish the interactive web pages that are used today. “Dynamic HTML(DHTML) refers to a combination of technologies that make Web pages dynamic…a combination of JavaScript, XHTML, CSS, and the Document Object Model” (Gosselin, 2008, pg. 485).     The Document object Model is all the HTML that is displayed on a web page from the web browser. Each of the many elements contained in the web page are considered objects and can be controlled and changed by using JavaScript. The Document Object Model gives you the ability to change these elements without the web page needed to be reloaded. The HTML DOM can be used to dynamically change the document object and to change and control elements like images, which can themselves be considered the image object. The Document object and the image object both contain methods and properties that can be used to dynamically change the web page.     The methods used with the document object are close, open, getElementById, getElementsByName, getElementsByTagName, write and writeIn. The open method creates a new window or a frame. The close method closes the document that was opened with the open method. The getElementById method retrieves an element by the specified ID. The getElementsByName method retrieves an array of elements that have a specific name. The......

...Abiola Idowu Ashford University BUS640 Operations Management September 26, 2011 Introduction: Porter’s model is based on the insight that a corporate strategy should meet the opportunities and threats in the organizations external environment, especially competitive strategy should be based on the understanding of an industry’s structure and the way they change. Porter has identified five competitive forces that shape every industry and every market. These forces determine the intensity of competition and hence the profitability and attractiveness of an industry. The objective of corporate strategy should be to modify these competitive forces in a way that improves the position of the organization. Porter’s model supports the analysis of the driving forces in an industry. Based on the information derived from the five forces analysis, management can decide how to influence or to exploit particular characteristics of their industry. The five competitive forces are typically described as follows: bargaining power of suppliers, the term 'suppliers' comprises of all sources for inputs that are needed in order to provide goods or services, supplier bargaining power is likely to be high when the market is dominated by a few large suppliers rather than a fragmented source of supply, there are no substitutes for the particular input, the suppliers, customers are fragmented so their bargaining power is low, the switching costs from one supplier to another are high there is......

Key terms in the main claim - Unsafe = The fact that there is over 100 hunting deaths in the United States every year Illegal = Forbidden by law Recreation = Activity done for enjoyment when one is not working Support: 3 reasons/sub-claims- Hunting endangers the whole entire community at times, not just the willing hunters Studies have shown that car and deer collisions increase during hunting season. (Reasoning for this is because the deer are scared in the woods and run wildly right into unseen traffic) Hunting is unethical coming from the animals rights Rebuttals: give two - It is wrong because we are not letting nature do its job and letting it run its course like it should (whether it be sick or starving, It doesn't matter) It is not morally correct to go out killing and wounding animals Concession: give one - I think that we could compromise and make there be a specific laws on how many we could kill a year… How I plan to appeal to the audience using: - Ethos (how I will get my audience to trust me) - 1.
