The Toulmin Model for Arguments Oct 21, 2013 Agenda: -EQ: What are the parts of an argument and how do they fit together? -Notes on claims, grounds, and warrants -Demonstration of Toulmin Model -Begin Argument Posters (groups of 3)
Claim: Your point Not always directly stated (but it should be!)
Grounds (Data): Your proof. Can come in the form of logic, citing sources, statistics, etc.
Warrant: The logic that links your grounds to your claim. Not always directly stated (implicit warrant). When it is, it makes your argument stronger (explicit warrant).
Student: Open the door! Hewell: No. Student: Come on, man! Hewell: Go get a pass. Student: But my stuff’s in there! I just went to the bathroom! Hewell: So? Student: I’m not late!
Hewell: Yes, you are. Go get a pass. Student: No, I’m not! I got there on time! See? My stuff’s right there! Another student: That is his stuff. Student: See? Hewell: You’re not in the room now. Student: But my stuff is! Hewell: Pass. Student: That ain’t fair!
Claim: Your point Grounds/Data: Proof/evidence/support for claim. Warrant: The logic that links the grounds to the claim.
Claim: Mr. Hewell is behaving unfairly. Grounds: Because he is making the student get a pass.
Warrants: -Students who are on time do not have to get a pass. -The student was on time -By making a student who is on time get a pass, Mr. Hewell is behaving unfairly.
NEW Claim: The student was on time. Grounds: Because his stuff is in the room.
Warrants: -The student is expected to arrive at the classroom before the bell rings to be on time. -The student’s stuff proves that he arrived before the bell rang. -The student does not have to be physically present in the classroom to be considered “on time.”
NEW NEW Claim: The student does not have to be physically present in the classroom to be considered on time.
NEW NEW Claim: The student does not have to be physically present in the classroom to be considered on time. Grounds: [RCPS/Salem High School guidelines defining tardiness.]
Interesting Note: The RCPS Guidelines are fairly vague on the subject of tardies. Vagueness of this sort almost always means that the teacher can decide what does and does not define tardiness.
Interesting Note Continued: In this case, the student probably won’t win this fight. He would be better off arguing that an official definition for tardiness be established. This is why so many people argue about bills in Congress!
Warrants: -RCPS or [source] is a reliable resource for defining tardiness -The building (in general) universally adheres to this definition of tardiness.
