The Rogerian Argument begins with a question and ends with a compromise which takes into consideration the needs, fears and concerns of both sides. You will select your articles from RC’s online scholarly database; you must continue to use the same topic selected for the first three papers. The final draft of this paper will be at least three full pages.
In your introduction, begin with an overview of what the paper is about, trying not to announce your intentions (e.g. do not say, “In this paper, I will…”). As you summarize each opposing article in your introduction, attribute each argument and example to its source, the author (Taylor argues…According to…). Your thesis will restate both positions you are analyzing and will hint at the conclusion you will reach at the end of your paper.
In your body paragraphs, begin with a summary of each position as stated in the article, and then include an analysis of each argument afterwards. These ideas would most effectively be broken down into separate paragraphs per article, for a total of four body paragraphs (article one summary for body paragraph #1; article one analysis for body paragraph #2; article two summary for third body paragraph; article two analysis for the fourth). Make sure, for however many paragraphs you have, to have a topic sentence for each that accurately represents what you will discuss in that body paragraph, and of course, you will need transitions between each body paragraph.
For your summary section for each article, make sure that you, after having a topic sentence with a transition, provide enough summary to represent accurately the author’s main idea and most important supporting details. Provide at least one short piece of textual evidence from each article. Remember that the emphasis here should be on the fact that these ideas are the author’s, so every sentence should emphasize this point (e.g. Silver writes…The author argues…).
In the analysis section, you are flaws in the author’s argumentation (see the resources for terms and definitions to include in your analysis–you will need to use at least one of these terms for logical fallacies in your analysis of each article.) Make sure you bold and underline these terms in your paper; make sure, too, that you define the terms in your own words. Most importantly, show evidence of this flaw from the article and then explain through careful analysis how your evidence shows that this author has committed this fallacy.
The conclusion is your compromise which takes into consideration the needs, fears, and concerns of both sides. Since you have established the flaws in both arguments, you get to come up with a “solution,” your compromise between the two positions. You may delve into research to back up your compromise (although it is not a requirement), but if you refer to ideas others have come up with, attribute the idea to that source.
