Toulmin Analysis of an Essay
After reviewing the Toulmin Analysis document, closely read the “Sample Persuasive Paper” in the Ashford Writing Center and submit a Toulmin analysis of the paper. Your initial post should make specific references to the sample persuasive paper and break down the argument by distinct segments described in the Toulmin Analysis document (claim, evidence, warrant, etc).
Your initial post must be 200 to 300 words in length, and is due by Day 3. You are required to respond to at least two of your classmates by Day 7 in at least 125 to 200 words per response. Comment on your classmates’ posts by responding to their use of the Toulmin analysis. Does the analysis include all of the required segments? If so, explain how. If not, offer instructions for more effective use of this analytical method.
