Learning Goal: I’m working on a writing discussion question and need a sample publish to help me learn.
In the argument chapter, you learned about expressed arguments (overt arguments attempting to persuade the audience towards a point of view) and implied arguments(arguments that appear on the surface not to be arguments but actually seek to persuade the audience of a point of view or views). For this DQ, provide a specific example from the media of an expressed argument andan implied argument and answer the following questions:
What is the expressed argument you identified? What specific argument does the author make? What evidence does the author use to support his or her claims?
What is the implied argument you identified? What specific argument does the author make? What evidence does the author use to support his or her claims?
Why is it important to understand expressed and implied arguments?
How might you use your understanding of expressed and implied arguments when publishing your first essay in this course?
Note: You may use visual arguments such as photos and pictures, but you will still need to explain your rationale for why you believe the author is making a specific argument.
