From Inquiry to Argument blends inquiry, research, and argument by
interweaving a discussion of argumentation strategies with
instruction in critical thinking and research skills and with
writing tasks important to research and argument. Most textbooks
emphasize either argument (and ignore the need to discover sources
and information) or research (and de-emphasize argumentation as a
motive for seeking source material). From Inquiry to Argument
develops students' abilities in argumentation and research
simultaneously. This approach gives students a reason to research -
to find ideas and information for their arguments - and also helps
them build better arguments by teaching them how to analyze and
generate ideas and perform research in primary and secondary
sources. From Inquiry to Argument teaches the process of
researching and constructing an argumentative research paper. It
covers academic documentation in both MLA and APA styles, while
also addressing informal source reference. Numerous professional
readings as well as nine student writing samples expose students to
different types of writing and provide a base for primary research.
The coverage of argument addresses such related topics as critical
thinking, logic and fallacies, and the appeals, and presents
Toulmin logic as a touchstone for the discussion of argument.
