PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Includes a copy of the Toulmin model with definitions of elements of argument and an example of Toulmin analysis of a claim. The first section of the worksheet has students analyze a thesis statement to identify the assumption and backing that links the claim to its support and asks them to identify qualifiers and rebuttals to strengthen the argument. The second section presents students with questions to which they must take a position in response, or claims that they must defend, challenge, or qualify, and asks them to plot their argument on the Toulmin model diagram, adding in supporting evidence, warrants, qualifiers/reservations, and rebuttals. The final section presents students with a writing prompt about privacy laws (should the government be able to access your private data to prevent terrorism?); students are asked to plan their response on an expanded Toulmin model with multiple points of evidence and warrants, then to draft a 10-15 sentence argument supporting their point of view.
