Unit 4 Assignment Worksheet

In the Units 3 and 4 Discussions, you created a thesis statement that offered a solution to a problem in your community or workplace. In this unit’s Assignment, you will revise and evaluate the effectiveness of that thesis using the Toulmin Model.

Part I: First of all, you will revise the provisional thesis statement that you generated in the previous unit Discussion. Make sure the thesis is concise (1–2 sentences) and includes two parts: a proposal for solving a problem and a reason that solution is needed.   For more on creating effective persuasive thesis statements, review the following Writing Center resources:

●   “Give Your Paper Direction: Developing a Strong Thesis Statement”

●   “Writing a Thesis for a Persuasive Essay”

Write your revised two-part thesis statement here, and be sure to include a claim + reason (the “because” or “since” clause):

What type of claim does this represent?

Part II: Next, describe how you will use the appeals of logos, ethos, and pathos to make your argument more compelling to your audience. You can review the Writing Center resource on the appeals here: "The Three Appeals of Argumentative Writing"

Part III:  Identify the parts of your argument based on the Toulmin Model. For more on the Toulmin Model, review the following Writing Center resources:

·         Toulmin Model of Argument “Podcast” and “Transcript”

·         “How to Support an Argument and Avoid Logical Fallacies”


Warrant (assumption):

Qualifiers: How strongly do you believe in the argument? Would any qualifiers be beneficial? Why or why not?


Backing (for the warrant):


Identify at least one logical fallacy to which your argument may be susceptible and how you will avoid that fallacy. For more on logical fallacies, review the Kaplan University Writing Center resource “How to Support an Argument and Avoid Logical Fallacies.”
