Description of The Purposeful Argument: A Practical Guide with APA Updates, 3rd Edition:
Written for today’s diverse learners, THE PURPOSEFUL ARGUMENT: A PRACTICAL GUIDE, 3rd Edition, equips you with skills that are critical to success in school and well beyond. Extremely accessible, it encourages learners to argue in response to issues in a variety of environments — school, workplace, family, neighborhood, social-cultural, consumer, and concerned citizen — and illustrates how argument can become an essential negotiating skill in everyday life. Offering thorough treatments of Toulmin-based and Rogerian approaches, it teaches the value of understanding the opposition, the importance of aiming for the middle ground and how to use a microhistory to forge an unconventional position. Vivid explanations, detailed examples and practical exercises guide you step by step through the process of building an effective argument. A rich anthology of arguments covers current issues.Important Notice: Media content referenced within the product description or the product text may not be available in the ebook version.
