Step 1: Identify the passage. Completely and correctly identify the author and the source (whenever such information is given). If the passage contains an argument, identify it as such. Then move to Step 2. If the passage does not contain an argument, identify it as a nonargument. Then specify which feature of an argument is lacking. Step 2: Analyze the argument. Clearly and completely identify the issue, conclusion, and premise or premises in that order . If the passage is a multiple argument , write separate paragraphs to analyze each separate argument. Step 3: Identify the kind of argument. If the argument is deductive, identify it as a categorical argument or a truth-functional argument. If the argument is inductive, identify it as an inductive generalization, an analogical argument, or a causal argument. Step 4: Evaluate the argument. If the argument is an inductive generalization/analogical argument, evaluate its strength by considering how well the sample represents the target.

    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.
