Overview

Logical Argument in the Research Paper operate son the premise that collegiate-level writing, when cast in its most significant and sophisticated form, is argumentative. Students are shown how writers examine a potential topic, establish a stance upon that topic, defend the stance, avoid reasoning and ethical rrors, and in general say something meaningful about the topic. It also includes instruction about finding sources, gathering information from them, and correctly documenting them. However, the emphasis remains on how effective writers evaluate sources, think about the information they discover, prepare a fair and informed argument, rethink and revise the argument, and finally present an argument in its completed form. Logical Argument in the Research Paper will help students learn some of the reasoning processes that all writers use when composing the academic argument.
