Chapter 4 – Academic Research Free-Write

In sixth grade, I performed research on childhood obesity. This featured a year long of reading through academic journals and sources while working towards a large paper and study. I created a survey that would be handed out to each student in my entire school; featuring simple questions about one’s exercise and dietary habits, height, and weight. With this information I compared my results with those I found online and in other studies. One major conclusion I came to was fairly obvious, but was made far more clear after seeing that my school was fairly healthy. The conclusion was that a child’s environment has an important affect on the child’s health. They say that 2 in 5 children are overweight or obese, yet my results featured around a 1 in 10 ratio. Therefore, I concluded some areas must be far more dense in terms of obesity.

Chapter 3 – Developing Arguments

  • Many writing situations, even of different types, require authors to develop an argument in attempt to persuade the audience
  • Arguments are frequently research oriented
  • Good arguments are well supported
  • Inartistic proofs are based on factual evidence, such as statistics, raw data, and contracts… while Artistic proofs are created by the writer or speaker to support an argument
  • Rhetorical appeals: ethos, logos, pathos
  • Thesis statement vs. hypothesis
  • The unifying element of any academic argument is its primary or central claim
  • Reasons to support a claim are generally not powerful unless supported by evidence
  • Anytime you stake a claim or provide a reason, you are assuming something about your audiences beliefs and values
  • Anticipating counterarguments
  • Engaging in counter arguments demonstrates that you have considered multiple positions and are knowledgable about your subject
  • Qualifying a claim is essentially limiting your argument to certain terms.
