Edward Perry III HU1440 – Mrs. Weatherby Rhetoric in Contemporary Culture December 12, 2015 E-Textbook Scavenger Hunt Chapter One 1. An argument can be based on world events, world problems and also controversial issues we face in today’s society. Arguments defined in my own words can be someone trying to defend their personal beliefs with support of facts on why they feel and think that way. 2. Argument = Claim + Support 3. Examples of traditional argument are; single-perspective argument, courtroom argument, public debate argument and a one-on-one/ everyday argument. 4. Examples of consensual argument are; dialectic, academic inquiry, negotiation and mediation and also an internal argument. 5. An argument works best with six things; an issue, arguer, audience, common ground, a forum and audience outcomes. These things will lead to a successful argument. An issue would be the primary focus of the argument, whether it be poverty or an issue within the government. An arguer is someone who is able to start the argument by stating their views, beliefs and opinions of the topic. The audience can be friendly or hostile, but whether they are good or bad, the audience is required to be respectful and listen consider what they are thinking. Having common ground in an argument makes the argument very effective. The arguers and audience must have some type of understanding and common ground that can relate to the issue. Having common ground is a safe route to an argument rather than having a standoff or an argument ends in violence. Forums are just public arguments, it can take place on social media or take place in a courtroom. Audience outcomes usually mean that the argument can change heavily change the audience decisions and thoughts on the issue.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
