Diagramming and Evaluating Arguments

After reading Diagramming and Evaluating Arguments read "Social Media: Establishing Criteria for Law Enforcement"  by Robert D. Stuart.

Write an essay, evaluating the effectiveness of Stuart's argument. This essay will go beyond summarizing, though you will use summary in the introduction to provide context to your reader. See the sample paper for help. 

·        Write an essay responding to the essay by evaluating the effectiveness of Stuart's argument.

·        Include the "title of the article", full name of the author, and (in-text citation) in the first sentence, building on the skills from last week:

In Stuart's article, "Social Media: Establishing Criteria for Law Enforcement" (2013), the topic of [X] is explored/discussed/evaluated…"

·        Use an XYZ thesis statement as the last sentence of the introduction: Stuart's argument is effective/ineffective because of XYZ. 

·        Avoid the use of 1st and 2nd person and personal opinion in this essay.

·        Quote and cite the author, Stuart,  to support your claim. DO NOT include outside/secondary sources.

·        You must include in-text citations for the quote (Stuart, 2013)

·        Length: 3 pages (does not include Title page and Reference page in this count)

·        12 point, Times New Roman font, double-spaced, one-inch margins,

·        Include an APA 7 Title page and Reference page in correct APA format. Use this citation on your Reference Page and also use a hanging indent. To create a hanging indent: Highlight the source. In MS word, click on the HOME Menu. Then click on the Paragraph tab below it. When the box pops up, scroll to special and click HANGING.

Follow these APA Rules for In-Text Citations:

Format for a Quotation:   

Ordinarily, introduce the quotation with a signal phrase that includes the author’s last name followed by the year of publication in parentheses. Put the page number (preceded by “p.”) in parentheses after the quotation.


Smith (2003) noted that despite growing numbers of overweight Americans, many health care providers still “remain either in ignorance or outright denial about the health danger to the poor and the young” (p. 5).


Smith noted that despite growing numbers of overweight Americans, many health care providers still “remain either in ignorance or outright denial about the health danger to the poor and the young” (2003, p. 5).


It's clear that despite growing numbers of overweight Americans, many health care providers still “remain either in ignorance or outright denial about the health danger to the poor and the young” (Smith, 2003, p. 5).

This week, you will evaluate Stuart's argument. This is to say, you will discuss how well he is able to make his argument. In my sample paper, I discuss three ways that my sample author has done this. Note the last line of my introduction. I use the thesis statement model: topic = argument because of XYZ.

This is what my paper will look like in terms of an outline (your paper will be an actual paper, not an outline):


Introduction: last line of introduction will be my thesis statement.

  1. The first sentence of the introduction introduces the article and claim: In the article X, the author Y (in-text citation) discusses the topic of Z. Example: In the article "I love Cats," Smith (2021) discusses the increase in adoption rates for homeless animals in the 2020 pandemic.
  2. Summarize the topic and briefly introduce it to the reader so they understand what it is about, avoiding the use of “I." Example: Smith goes on to talk about the positive aspects of so many cats being adopted, but also the consequences of the pandemic slowing and ending. He reiterates the importance of adoption being a life-long commitment.
  3. Place the thesis statement as the last line of the introduction: Smith's argument is effective because he uses statistics, relies on the emotions of the reader, and uses interviews as evidence.

Body paragraph one: Smith's argument is effective because he uses statistics

  1. Supporting evidence: Find a quote from the text, cite it, analyze it using the sandwich method.

Body paragraph two: relies on the emotions of the reader

1.Supporting evidence: do the same as above…

Use the sandwich method

Body paragraph three: uses interviews as evidence. 

1.Supporting evidence

Use the sandwich method

Conclusion: reiterate the important parts of your paper

  1. restate the thesis statement
  2. remind your reader of your XYZ statements
  3. do not bring up anything new here
  4. let your reader down gently!
