Which of the following is a good method for getting started writing?
Sit down and spend some good time brainstorming for ideas that interest you within the parameters of your assignment.

None of the above
IncorrectQuestion 2
2 / 2 pts
Which of the following is not considered a pre-writing strategy?
Writing your introduction paragraph
You should not write a full paragraph of your essay until after you’ve done some planning.

 The rhetorical situation in writing refers to all except:
Type of writing
The rhetorical situation includes your topic, purpose, audience, and writing situation
Question 4
2 / 2 pts
Please choose the incorrect statement regarding the Toulmin Model of argument:
The “warrant” is your common ground with your audience, and you simply must have it. You cannot make a claim or build grounds for that claim unless you and your audience accept that some things are true.
The “claim” is your stance and is what you are wishing to convince your audience of. Anyone can make any claim, no matter how obvious or far-fetched; that’s the easy part.
The “qualifier” is where we make sure the reader understands that not agreeing with our stance means the reader’s beliefs are completely flawed and ridiculous.
The “rebuttal” is where we note opposing viewpoints, handle them with respect and concession, and refute them.
Qualifiers are words like “some” and “many,” and they make us sound more reasonable; we should not be disrespectful to the reader.
Question 5
2 / 2 pts
Which of the following represents the contents of an effective introduction paragraph for an argument essay?
Some clarifying context to lay the groundwork for the current state of your chosen topic.
An indication that there is a real need to explore the topic and the current debate surrounding it.
A thesis statement that clearly asserts the stance you will argue for and that frames your stance within the larger debate.
All of the above
We want to give our reader enough background to understand that there is an issue and a debate while also making clear the stance the paper will argue.
IncorrectQuestion 6
2 / 2 pts
Please choose the incorrect statement regarding Aristotle’s argumentative appeals:
 “Kairos” refers to the climate of the times, to contexts like important current events and to the current state of human affairs and of human thought.
“Ethos” refers to ethics. This is where we look at religious belief and morality.
“Pathos” is an appeal to emotion and is effective when used sparingly and appropriately.
“Logos” is logic. We use logos to make logical connections between established truths and/or solid sources and our own conclusions.
We should avoid trying to argue belief, and “ethos” actually means establishing authority and credibility.
Question 7
2 / 2 pts
Which of the following is not a scholarly source?
An article written by practicing nurses and published in a journal such as the Journal of Research in Nursing
An article from a weekly magazine such as New Scientist
A book written by authors with advanced medical degrees, published by an academic publisher and peer reviewed
An anthology (a book-length collection) of essays that have all been peer reviewed and published by degreed experts
Magazines, while often credible, are not scholarly.
IncorrectQuestion 8
2 / 2 pts
A good example of an argument thesis is:
History shows us that mass migrations are usually the result of climate change, violence, or oppression.
While many experts assert that studying past mass migrations will be helpful toward predicting migrations in the 21st Century, the most reasonable stance is that due to changes in the modern world, there is little of value in this approach.
There are several historic mass migrations that anthropologists note as most worthy of examination toward understanding the future.
Research over the mass migrations of Native Americans reveals a number of conflicting theories.
B presents a debate and a stance; the others are all statements of fact. 
Question 9
2 / 2 pts
Which is not a good method for determining who your audience will be?
Begin by considering the possible people your topic may impact.
Consider the where, when, why, and how of your topic as related to your potential readers.
Begin by considering the possible people your topic may impact.
Your audience is only your instructor and maybe classmates if you have a peer review.
While your immediate readers may be your instructor and possibly classmates, we must imagine a particular audience that we are hypothetically writing to, an audience invested in the issue.
Question 10
2 / 2 pts
During the process of moving from a topic to a specific thesis for an argument essay, which of the following is not true?
You should work hard to find only sources that agree with you.
You should perform preliminary research to understand the scope of the larger debate on the topic.
You should brainstorm and pre-write to decide where you stand within the larger debate on the topic.
You should narrow your focus by exploring the Who, What, Where, When, How, and Why of your topic.
B, C, and D are true. However, you will want to find and employ sources with varying opinions.
