Ashford 2: – Week 1 – Discussion 1


Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses. Reference the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.

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


Description: 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.

Respond to Peers (due Monday, Day 7)

In 125 to 200 words each, respond   to at least two classmates. In each response, address your classmate’s   questions and concerns with information from class and your own research or   web search. Then, analyze your classmate’s description of argument and   provide additional information or share examples of the basic elements of an   argument.
