After students wrote an argument essay concerning education, I noticed many did not use warrants. This lesson focuses on the assumption or warrant of the Toulmin model because many students need clarification on this difficult task.
This is a handout and lesson plan with possible student responses. It reviews the Toulmin Model, specifically focusing on the assumption or warrant. It includes definitions of the Toulmin analysis and warrant, discussion questions (4), Toulmin analysis examples (2), and practice Toulmin analyses (2).
The file is a PDF, but I created it in Google Docs. If you'd like me to share it with you, I'd be happy to do so; just email me :)
