Manual, Kennedy, Kennedy and Holladay, 5th edition; Rules for

Writers, hacker, 3rd edition; a college-level dictionary; a thesaurus;

loose-leaf notebook paper for papers written in class

 

Course Description

This is a university-parallel freshman English course that has two

primary purposes. One is to develop writing and reasoning skills

by examining and discussing them through expository writing. The

other is to broaden the student's cultural perspective by reading and

discussing multi-cultural topics with should result in increasing

knowledge of and appreciation for cultural diversity. The primary

goal of the course is for the student to sharpen his/her writing skills.

By the end of the course, the student should be able to write well-

focused compositions in Standard Written English and to write an

acceptable research paper, following the principles of correct

research and documentation strategies.

 

Writing Assignment Policy

Compositions: minimum of five; one of which will be presented

orally, as well; all papers written away from

 

class must be typed double-spaced, using plain

white 8 1/2 x ll" white paper. All in-class writ-

ten assignments (paragraphs and short essays)

must be written on every other line, using loose-

leaf notebook paper. Compositions should average

2--3 pages in length. Your name, the date, and

assignment type (eg) Comp.#1 or Paragraph #2)

must appear in the upper right-hand corner of the

paper.

 

Research Paper: this is a required paper which will be built on the

writing and reasoning strategies practiced and

learned from preceding composition assignments.

This assignment will be explained step by step,

complete with selected topics and deadline re-

quirements for the paper and its components;

the paper constitutes 35% of your grade; it must

be done according to the specific given guidelines.

NO LATE PAPERS WILL BE ACCEPTED !!!

 

 

Quizzes and in-class assignments/exercises will be based on read-

ings and lectures;these assignments will not always be announced

in advance; they may not be made up,if missed.

 

 

 

Late papers will not be accepted. A late assignment is any assignment handed in after its due date. In the case of a doctor's excuse, an extreme family emergency, or a court appearance ( all with documentation), the student may be given an alternate assignment at my discretion. Other emergencies will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Of the mi

nimum five compositions, the student may revise any two that receive the word REWRITE stamped on it. The REWRITE stamp indication means that the paper's letter grade would have been a D or F. I will confer with the student

about the need for revision, and, if the student opts to revise the paper, the revision, along with the original, must be submitted the next class session; otherwise, the designated grade of D or F will be given.

Since the research paper is required, the student will fail the course if the paper is not submitted when due and according to the specific given guidelines.

 

Attendance - It is very important that the student attend each of the weekly class sessions. This is vital to the student's success in the course; you will miss the in-class assignments which cannot be made up. Roll will be taken

ONCE for each class. Excessive tardiness will lower your grade. You are expected to remain throughout the duration of the class sessions. If you miss one fourth of our classes, you will fail the course. You are responsible for all homework, whether you are in class the day it is assigned or not. It is strongly suggested that you get the phone number of a classmate to find out what's due if you must be absent. Do not expect me to go over everything that you missed for a three-hour class. Attendance is your responsibility.

 

Grades:

Final grades for the course will be determined by the following formula:

Paragraphs 15%

Compositions 35%

Research Paper 35%

Quizzes and exercises 15%

 

Disruptive Behavior: Any behavior that interferes with learning in the classroom will not be tolerated. This includes late arrivals that interrupts the on-going lessons. See Student handbook .

 

Plagiarism

You, the student, are expected to make a totally honest effort to succeed in class. Plagiarism is the dishonest presentation of another's words or ideas as thought they are your own. This will be cause for failure of the course.

 

Statement: You, the student, are expected to take notes on class lectures, pay attention in class, totally respect both the teacher and other class members, and to ask questions on anything that you do not understand. I, as the instructor, fully intend to help facilitate your success in this class.

English 101 Notes on Shaping an Effective Argument

from Reasoning and Writing Well by Betty Dietsch

 

 

- the general purpose of any argument is to persuade readers or listeners to accept a belief, adopt a policy, or enact a decision, proposal, or law; an argument urges change and often includes a call for action.

 

 

- many, many years ago thr Greek the, Aristotle, defined three kinds of appeals that make up an argument: logos (logic), ethos (ethics), pathos (emotion).

 

- a logical appeal is based on facts and workable theories; a logical argument appeals to the mind, using evidence, reasons, and examples to support a claim or proposition.

 

- an ethical appeal is designed to strike a responsive chord in the minds of the readers or listeners, encouraging them to do what is right, good, fair, and best. Ethics can be broadly defined as a set of moral values ---principles of conduct for an individual, group, or society.

 

- an emotional appeal should be used in moderation; these stir up feelings of the reader or listener

 

The three appeals can be identified by the types of questions they raise:

 

- logical appeal: Is the claim factual and reasonable? True or false? Practical or impractical?

ethical appeal : Is it fair or unfair? Honest or dishonest? Good or bad?

 

- emotional appeal: Do the words arouse feelings of empathy, sympathy, or antagonism? Do they make the reader or listener care about the subject?

 

In an effective argument, all three appeals are intertwined.

 

 


 

Continuation of notes on Shaping an Effective Argument by Betty Dietsch

 

- the structure of a logical argument consists of four basic parts:

 

. Making a claim (stating the purpose); the claim or purpose should be made directly

 

- Anticipating objections from readers/ listeners; knowing the main points of the

opponents helps a writer/speaker to answer objections effectively

 

- Countering objections by supporting the claim with solid evidence; a

writer/speaker supports a claim with facts and explains, using statistics, reasons,

examples, or other evidence.

 

- Submitting a conclusion derived from the evidence and the writer/speaker's

personal (biased) opinions

_______________________________________________________________________

 

Writing Exercise

 

for each of the following situations: write a thesis statement in ONE EFFECTIVE SENTENCE

- then give THREE SUPPORTING POINTS

 

- then give THREE OPPOSING POINTS

 

THE POINTS SHOULD BE BASED ON YOUR OWN KNOWLEDGE OF FACTS AND YOUR OWN PERSONAL OPINIONS

 

SAMPLE SITUATIONS:

 

#1 Dental charge. A busy dentist has a policy that if a patient missed an appointmen t without canceling, a minimum of $25 is added to the bill. A woman who missed her appointment because she took her injured child (who suffered a broken leg) to the emergency room is protesting the extra charge.

 

 

#2 Bad dog. Your dog has misbehaved by getting into and eating some of your people food without permission. You put him outside all day in cold, wet weather. He has some water and some of his food. He is sitting outside on the porch, barking and moaning.

 

#3 Illicit romance Two office workers ( one is married) are having a romance that has affected their productivity and has become the talk of coworkers. This information gets to you, the supervisor .

 

#4 E-mail. While at work, an employee sends e-mail that is job-related as well as social. The employer is informed of this and decides to read the employee's e-mail.
