core paragraph review1
Core Paragraph Review
  • Topic Sentence – controlling idea with a specific impression

    • Cell phones should be allowed in class because I use mine for educational purposes.
    • Sex education should be taught in schools because it prevents unwanted pregnancies and STDs.

Core Paragraph Review
  • Support– The information that helps to prove your claim is valid/true.
    • Details – specifics from a narrative
    • Evidence – Quotes, research
    • Anecdotes – Personal story
    • Facts – Statistics, irrefutable truths (or widely accepted truths)
commentary
Commentary
  • Commentary – the analysis the writer includes to connect the support to the topic sentence and show how it is helping to prove the claim.
  • Ask – So what?
  • “This means…” “This evidence shows…” “This demonstrates…”
conclusion

  • Concluding Sentence/Transition
  • In argumentative writing, the final sentence and the conclusion of any paragraph should NOT NEVER be simply a restatement of your topic sentence (this is repetitiveand low level).
  • Effective conclusionis, instead, an explanation of why the claim proven in the paragraph matters on its own (when the argument comprises a single paragraph) or why the proven claims matter in the context of the essay’s larger argument (when the argument is multi-paragraph, and the paragraph is for one point of it).

  • Claim – debatable or controversial statements or assertions that you hope to prove.
  • Logic/evidence – the raw material for building arguments
  • Reasons – major terms of the argument
  • Warrants – logical and persuasive connection between a claim and the reasons/data supporting it (assumptions)
  • Backing – evidence to support your warrant
  • Qualifiers – words/phrases that place limits on claims (usually, sometimes, in many cases)
  • Conditions of Rebuttal – objections of your opposition
  • Ethos, Pathos, Logos – ethical, emotional, and logical appeals (respectively)

  • Prove your warrant…your assumption needs to be addressed.
  • Use LOGICAL backing – quotes from both texts (no cherry-picking)
  • Anticipate questions – your reader is smart!
  • Anticipate rebuttals – create air-tight points, so there are no large gaps in your argument (and concede a point when you can’t refute).
