This 42-slide PowerPoint presentation discusses where the Toulmin model originated and how it works. It takes the class through the following parts of the argument: Claim, Grounds, Backing, Warrants, and Qualifiers. It gives abundant examples from politics, religion, economics, education, military, interpersonal relationships and such. While these are controversial issues (examples do not necessarily reflect my own positions), there can be no argument about issues upon which everyone agrees. So truly "argumentative" examples must be given. Examples can be deleted, added, updated, but they give ideas for student papers.
