Everyday Arguments combines highly practical guide to arguments and rhetoric, with an anthology of illustrative readings drawn from arguments of everyday life. The practical rhetoric section is based upon a single and sensible four-part taxonomy of argument derived from the various purposes of arguments. Readers are led step-by-step through the processes of generating, drafting, composing, and revising written arguments in all four categories. Stimulating writing exercises throughout each chapter encourage readers to practice stills as they learn them, and to keep earlier skills fresh as they learn new ones. The anthology of readings is closely tied to the principles and practices introduced in the rhetoric section. The overarching philosophy of the reading selections (and of the book as a whole) is that written argument - in all its variety - is the most common form of writing and that much can be learned about its practice from the texts we encounter on a daily basis.For those interested in developing their rhetoric, argument, reading and writing skills.
