fter reviewing the Classic and Rogerian Arguments document, discuss how to place your tentative essay into either Aristotle’s classical form of argument or the Rogerian argument style. Your initial post must justify the placement of your material and describe the material’s intended effect on the audience.
Your initial post must be 200 to 300 words in length
To get started on this discussion, first read the Classic and Rogerian Arguments document.
Then discuss how to place your tentative essay into either Aristotle’s classical form of argument or the Rogerian argument style.
Here’s how I would approach this discussion post:
1. Remind us of your topic.
2. State which argument style you will use
3. Give a 1-2 sentence overview of the style itself (in your own words!)
4. Explain why you chose this style for your essay. Why is the best choice? Why would the other style produce a less-effective result? How does audience play a role in your choice?
**Remember: No matter your audience’s background and expertise, the paper you are writing is still a formal, academic essay. We should still avoid first and second person, slang, clichés, truisms, and any other form of informality.
