Ashford 2: – Week 1 – Discussion 1


Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses. Reference the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.


What   Is an Argument?



  • Before drafting your initial      post, take time to reflect on the idea of argument in an academic setting.      Think about your own natural communication style and your typical behavior      in an argument. Are you typically calm and logical when making an      argument? Do you tend to appeal to emotion? Do you often get frustrated      when trying to prove your point? Think critically about your personal      communication style and its effectiveness in an academic setting.

Write (due Thursday, Day 3)

  • In 200 to 300 words, describe      argument in your own words. Include the roles of the four basic elements      of an argument in your description. Give an example of an argument you      have experienced and identify the claims, evidence, counterargument, and      rebuttal used. 
  • If you cannot think of an      example from your own life, you may analyze the persuasive student paper,      Flag Burning, from the Ashford Writing Center instead. You must identify      claims, evidence, counterarguments, and rebuttals present in the student      paper.
  • Be sure to include any      questions or confusion you have regarding rhetoric, argument, and the      Classic/Rogerian styles.

Guided Response (due Monday, Day 7)

  • In 125 to 200 words each,      respond to at least two classmates. In each response, address your      classmate’s questions and concerns with information from class and your      own research or web search. Then, analyze your classmate’s description of      argument and provide additional information or share examples of the basic      elements of an argument.
