  2. In your Writer’s Notebook, answer the following questions • 1. What do you think of when you hear the word argument? • 2. Give an example of an argument that you have seen, read, or heard in recent days? • 3. Have you ever used an argument? When did you use it and as it effective?

  3. Watch an example…… • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kFUg6hMw9Lc • This is what people think of when they think of argument!!!

  7. Persuasion • How do you know? • The author uses a blend of facts AND opinions to convince the audience • He incorporates a variety of persuasion techniques such as a plain folks and emotional appeal to call you to believe the way he does

  8. What’s the Difference? Argument Persuasion Focus on proving or disproving a point for a reader Uses logical reasoning and factual evidence to prove a point; based on research; considers others perspectives on the issues Explains and evaluates the consequences of accepting the argument Focuses on influencing other’s beliefs and actions Uses a blend of facts and opinions to make others do or believe something; might consider other’s perspectives on the issues Explains the consequences of accepting the belief ONLY if positive

  9. Propoganda • Focuses on making you accept a writer’s beliefs without thinking • Uses assumptions and biases to manipulate your emotions; uses little or no evidence; only considers its own message • Ignores ALL consequences of accepting the belief

  10. Why you should know the difference • Most college writing is ARGUMENT writing– you need to support details LOGICALLY with EVIDENCE • If you do not analyze the writer’s purpose, you may get suckered into believing something that isn’t logical • If you do not recognize the manipulation of propaganda, you will fall prey to advertisements and political ads—then you will make poor purchase OR cast a poor vote

  11. Examples • Argument– “No Kid Hungry” PSA • Persuasion– 2012 Obama campaign ad • Propaganda– Nazi WWII poster
