This writing course builds on the skills of ENGLISH 124 and 125, serving as a more advanced writing course and examination of critical, academic argumentation as well as a basic introduction to research. The premise of the course is that you already know the basic moves of academic argument, especially how to construct claims and present evidence which meaningfully respond to a specific argumentative situation. What we will focus on are the kinds of arguments you can make, which have been defined for us by the ancient model known as 'stasis theory'. For the spring term we will study three kinds of argument that fit into this model: arguments of Definition, Evaluation and Cause.
