As you prepare to write your first discussion this week, take a few moments to do the following:

Reflect Icon


Before drafting your initial post, take time to reflect on the idea of argument in an academic setting. Think about your own natural communication style and your typical behavior in an argument. Are you typically calm and logical when making an argument? Do you tend to appeal to emotion? Do you often get frustrated when trying to prove your point? Think critically about your personal communication style and its effectiveness in an academic setting.

Write (due Thursday, Day 3)

In 200 to 300 words, describe argument in your own words. Include the roles of the four basic elements of an argument in your description. Give an example of an argument you have experienced and identify the claims, evidence, counterargument, and rebuttal used.

  • If you cannot think of an example from your own life, you may analyze the persuasive student paper, Flag Burning, from the Ashford Writing Center instead. You must identify claims, evidence, counterarguments, and rebuttals present in the student paper.
  • Be sure to include any questions or confusion you have regarding rhetoric, argument, and the Classic/Rogerian styles.


Welcome to Week 1, all! 

You’ll need to read through the course materials for Week 1 before tackling this post. Since we’ll be spending our course focused on argumentative writing techniques, we need to have a solid understanding of what those techniques are. I encourage you to review all of the course materials, including the instructor’s guidance, to help you create your post. 

Use the course materials to support your response this week, and don’t forget to include your APA citation for all sources. The AU Writing Center has excellent APA resources if you need a refresher. 

Please see the attached file for what your discussion board posts need to look like to reach each of the levels on the grading rubric (posted above in Step 1 “Prepare”).
