Product Description
This is a quick graphic organizer that I use with my students when teaching Stephen Toulmin's model of reasoning. This 1-page organizer helps students understand the 3 basic components of Toulmin's model, which I find easier for them to begin with rather than attempting all 6 parts of the model. Further, this organizer emphasizes that a student's own reasoning ought to comprise the bulk of his or her argument.

I generally use this organizer after introducing students to an overview of ethical theories, which is why you will see a reference to "consequentialism" in the reasoning section.

Students use this organizer to develop paragraphs in persuasive essays and speeches.
